3 Ways to get Freaky this Halloween – And A Free Torch

3 Ways to get Freaky this Halloween – And A Free Torch

This will be our third Halloween on the road and if there is one thing we’ve learned; no matter where you go, everybody loves to get freaky on Halloween.

Halloween is our favorite holiday because it’s our once a year pass to dress up as anything, or anyone, and act a fool!  So, no matter where our RV’s parked we try and seek out some freaky fun adventures!

Now we don’t want you out wondering around at night without a good torch, so we have a sweet solar powered one to give away to one lucky ghoul!  So stick with me for the details.

Year one on the road we found ourselves back in one of the friendliest and funkiest towns in America, Lake Havasu City, Arizona!  Whether you have, or haven’t, been to Lake Havasu City you should know that this city is crazy all year, and not just during spring break.  They will take any excuse to throw a party or an event (probably why we keep going back) so it’s almost a guarantee you’ll have a good time, no matter what the season.  Throw in some costumes, pumpkins, crazy divers, cheap tiny saws, a little imagination and this is what you get:

If the underwater pumpkin carving is a little to soggy for you, grab a costume, head to Main Street and keep your eyes peeled for the underground flash mob:

Fright Night

Year two on the road we made our way to visit Nikki’s Aunt and Uncle in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.  You see, we had made a vow to actually use the golf clubs we had been carrying around for over a year, and they had been gushing about their little country club for a while now tempting us to visit…so, when they claimed to have the perfect tournament for us, we didn’t know what to expect, and we could have never expected this:

Now, here we are, year three on the road, Wild Camping in the boonies without a party in sight…unless you count the lost souls of Ghost Towns.

So, we’re thinking of joining forces with some fellow sedentary lifeaphobics (Watsons Wonder and Wheeling It) at the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine, California to see what kind of horrifying trouble we can stir up in the sticks. I do love a good challenge!  Happy Halloween Everyone.

Now, onto that free solar powered torch I mentioned. We have an extra LED Solio Clip and thought a Halloween themed raffle would be a fun way to find it a home. So here is the scoop:
