Cheap Road Trips

Cheap road trips are some of our best memories of our childhood. I was raised with my grandparents who lived in poverty their entire life, but still managed to create some wonderful memories for our family by taking cheap road trips every year.

Back in those days fuel wasn't the major expense it is today, but even with the high cost of fuel a road trip is still one of the most economical vacations your family can take.

We always packed our own food to save money all neatly packed into a giant cooler.

Leave No Trace

Be sure to apply the leave no trace principals. Leave only footprints and take only photos.

Traveling in your RV today you can take all you need in your little home on wheels saving you money on hotels, airfare, and expensive restaurants while enjoying all the comforts of home.

There are plenty of reasons to take to the road including; family reunions, active vacations, family adventures, weekend getaways, volunteer experiences, friend get always, or corporate retreats.
