Snowmobiling in Grand Lake

For our most recent adventure, we set out to go snowmobiling in Grand Lake, Colorado.  What an adventure that was!  It was a gorgeous day for snowmobiling, as the weather was good and there was quite a bit of fresh snow on the ground. We started the day by heading to On the Trail in Grand Lake where we rented our snowmobile.  They went over the trails with us and provided snowmobiling suits, boots, and helmets.  The ladies at the front desk were great and they got us all set up to go out.  When we were suited up...

Dog Boots: Ruffwear Summit Trex Review

Dog Boots: Ruffwear Summit Trex Review What is better than sharing your Adventure in a Backpack with your best friend?  Sharing it with them while they are protected and comfortable, that’s what!  This review is of the Ruffwear Summit Trex Dog Boots that we bought for our Doberman, Pyros.  We bought them for her so she would be more comfortable on the trail, as she is not as light on her feet or as sure-footed as our Bichon, Sparta.  Yes, I said Bichon.  He is a great trail dog!  But this is about Pyros and her boots… Performance The Ruffwear...

The Adventure Of course, being a beautiful sunny day and having just gotten a few inches of fresh powder,...

Week One: Welcome to Full-Time RVing!

Full Time RVing We have officially been full-time RVers for a full week now.  What a week it has been, too!  We knew it would be a transition into full-time RVing, and boy were we right about that!  We are still working on settling into a routine, but we are slowly getting there. Day one in the RV was a little rough; it got pretty cold in the RV overnight and we had a little bit of a problem trying to keep Balboa, our ball python, warm.  But after a few adjustments and a panicked call to an expert,...
