There's nothing worse than riding the fuel price rollercoaster when your on a road trip in an RV, buying fuel sucks and RV's suck a lot of fuel! However, not traveling because of fuel prices is a cockamamie excuse for not traveling. So here we tackle one of our top questions: How Much Does it Cost to Fill up That RV? Let’s face it...if you are willing to make drastic changes to your travel plans or not go somewhere because of fuel prices, you didn’t really want to go in the first place. I’m sure that sounds harsh, but let’s look at the numbers: On a 1000 mile trip at 10mpg you would use 100 gallons of fuel. If prices shot up from $3 a gallon to $4 that's only $100 extra. Is that really going to make or break your trip? So let’s ditch the excuses and talk about how to soften the blow. Here are our tips for saving fuel and improving your MPG.
While there’s lots of hiking in and around Lake Havasu City, Needle mountain loop trail is the only one we’ve been on that has remnants of rock stars and million dollar gold mines!

It’s the first day of the New Year and while there are lots of ways to ring it in and start it off, why not try something different…cold…and of course a little adventurous. I’m sure you’re wondering just how cold it really was. Well outside was 37 degrees, the water was 47 degrees and while it was FREAKIN FREAZIN, it wasn’t as bad as we thought it was going to be. After a few minutes in the water, everything exposed (our face and hands) just went numb and you’re happy….for a little while.
