Where The Wynns Blow

We’ve been traveling full time since February 2011 and WOW, we’ve had some amazing adventures! From RV'ing across North America to sailing about the world, we hope you'll find a little inspiration for your next adventure! Move about the map, zoom into a destination, click on a pin and let the adventure begin…

Total Nautical Miles Sailed – 10,136.3


Anchorage or Marina

Off the cord and on the hook or dwelling at a dock, we’ll let you know which ones to seek out and those to avoid.

Sailing the world

Sailing

Exploring the world like its 1492. We’re out to sail across oceans, weather storms and discover adventures we don’t yet know exist.

National Park or Monument

Mother Nature creates the best eye candy and we love everything outdoors. For us, not much beats a day (or 12) in a National Park or Monument.

Scuba/Free Diving

Diving deep into the ocean our world slows down into a dreamlike state.  We enter a universe filled with alien like creatures and vegetation that sways with the pulsing of the tide. This is the worlds most unexplored place.

The Adventures

Who doesn’t dream about an Indiana Jones adventure? Instead of just day dreaming about it, use our interactive map to find and plan your own Indie adventures.

Sips and Bites

Each place we visit our goal is to support the local community. We avoid chains and seek out places that the typical traveler might not have time to find on their own.

Tell us where to go next

If you know of a festival, event, island or town that is not to be missed, we want to hear it! Leave us a comment, tweetfacebook, instagram us, send an owl or use your Jedi mind tricks and let us know what you’re thinking. We read every message and almost never turn down an invitation to go on an adventure.

    Found your channel a couple days ago...have not been able to stop watching.

    Just found the map above and learned where you are. Since you have a lot of sailing ahead, I wanted to give you some great reading that's relevant to your location.

    Here goes; northeast of your location is Nikumaroro Island (once called Gardner island), to the north-northeast of that is Howland Island. The significance of those two islands is they are where Amelia Earhart was thought to have made an emergency landing and died a castaway (Nikumaroro), and where she was trying to land and be refueled by the Coast Guard cutter Itasca (Howland).

    Where you'll find the great reading for your continued Pacific passage is at Tighar.org. Since 1988-89 the Tighar group has been making trips to Nikumaroro trying to prove/disprove the hypotheses that Amelia safely landed on Nikumaroro/Gardner, and eventually died a castaway.

    Amelia & Fred Noonan's problems are theorized to have started when they where departing Lae, New Guinea. On take off roll, with full tanks, the belly reception antennae was ripped from the bottom of the aircraft. There's archival footage showing the departure and a large puff of dirt that can be seen 5-6 seconds into their take off roll. Under the nose of Amelia's Lockheed Electra were two pitot tubes, the antenna described above was attached to one of those tubes. Subsequent photo analysis shows the pitot tube the antennae was attached to - appears - to be bent rearward by approximately 8 inches.

    - Did that pitot tube become damaged when the antennae was - theoretically - torn from the Electra on departure?
    - Can Amelia's inability to receive radio transmission's from the USCG cutter Itasca (and ground stations) be related to the loss of the antennae during the Lae departure?
    - If Amelia landed in water...how were radio transmissions heard for many days after they were thought to have ditched? Lockheed said the radio transmitter was located in a spot in the aircraft that wouldn't survive a water landing?
    - If Amelia/Noonan were able to transmit for days...what was said...and why weren't they rescued?

    Your mission...should you choose to accept it... is to examine the evidence that's been recovered from Nikumaroro...read about the opposing theories of her disappearance...and decide for yourself what became of Amelia & Fred Noonan (Fred Noonan was a pioneer of ocean navigation for Pan Am Clipper boats when they first started crossing the Pacific).

    The story, the evidence, the mystery will keep you entertained. I've been enthralled with Tighar's work on Amelia Earhart for 18 years (and I'm fortunate to have reached the point where my family no longer roll their eye's at the sound of Amelia Earhart's name LOL).

    Here are the links;
    Earhart project home page
    https://tighar.org/Projects/Earhart/AEdescr.html

    One of my personal favorites...the evidence page
    https://tighar.org/Projects/Earhart/Archives/Archivessubject.html

    Tighar's most recent research paper on post-loss radio signals analysis. It deals with the radio signal's heard for 5-7 days after she was thought to have crashed at sea
    https://tighar.org/Projects/Earhart/Archives/Research/ResearchPapers/Brandenburg/PostLossSignals/PostLossRadioAnalysis/PostlLossRadioAnalysis.htm

    Okay...other buying more beer...I've done what I can to help keep you entertained on your Pacific crossing.

    Cheers

    Warrenton, Oregon

    P.S. Ignore any negative comments you EVER get! You two are exceptionally kind, courageous, talented & resourceful. I'm old enough to be your Dad, and old enough to know good people when I see them.

    P.S.S. Nikki...stop chasing rouge jet skiers...by yourself! Seriously though...I was damn impressed by your decision making & demeanor during that incident.

    Hello Jason and Nicki,

    My wife and I started watching your travels via youtube a year or two ago. We found you while searching sailing channels and at the time didn't know you had the RV adventures. We want to sail eventually but it's not yet our time financially. My wife is a travel nurse so it allows us to do the RV adventures right now. We have been living in our fifth wheel for a little over a month with three children. We currently rent our home in florida out as well. We are working on a lifestyle where we can be free to travel anywhere and anytime like you all. If you have any tips or advice please let us know, thanks!

    I just love you guys to pieces. You are upbeat, young and fearless (for the most part), and doing all the things I should have done when I was young. Love following your adventures (now that you are sailing). I hadn't known about your videos until a friend pointed out that you were buying a sailboat and learning how to sail later. I thought this was pretty brave, so I started to watch and became hooked. I wish I could afford more support for you that I do but living on social security alone can be quite a challenge. Anyway, keep up the great videos and GO, GO, GO!

    How does one even consider, much less approach a lifestyle like this? How do you even begin? It seems like an impossible fantasy. The only way I was able to cross the Atlantic 4 times and them Mediterranean twice was by signing MY LIFE away for 8 years as US NAVY Hospital Corpsman with a crew of 350 serving Amo to the entire 6th Fleet.

    Im 53 now, and my wife and I have no kids, love the sea, yet have no idea how to make something l like this come true. As a veteran I would get a $300,000 loan with nothing down for a house if I wanted, but how does one work to pay off a Catamaran if you are traveling in it?

    Life it too short to not know the answers to these questions.

    Hello Nikki and Jason,
    My husband and I have been binge watching your videos over the last few weeks. We are set to retire in 4 years, plan to buy a cat and sail off to discover the world.
    I find your adventures very interesting.....
    So after watching many videos....I can NOT remember which one I seen those blue chairs you have on your deck. I went through your gear section of the website....to no avail.....in one video you were sitting on them....they are flat with no legs but have arm rests and look super handy.
    I'd like to know where you picked those up....we currently have a 30 Alberg and I need that chair.
    When you have the time please let me know.
    In the meantime, please keep posting the videos, I like to live vicariously through the two of you.

    You guy should consider spending some time in the Bocas del Toro area of Panama. I volunteer with the Floating Doctors down there almost yearly (they have year a year round program) and you will have an opportunity to not only get to highlight the program but you will be able to go deep into the Ngobe Indian communities and experience their culture and lifestyle that is scared to them, even from normal Panamanians. The organization does great work with providing socially responsible medical care and they take a panga boat to the communities and set up mobile clinics. Email myself for facebook photos on my adventures with them and here are some of their videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UK40956Oufk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXhutbsc-gg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-1vPwDH0SM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz3fXBs1uWM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFCbFMKk3GY

    One of the highlights of a trip we took there was making it down to Lighthouse Beach. Part of the fun on that day's Excursion was the Jeep ride down a very rutted road to get there. But we still thought that it was pretty stunning looking. presumably it is already on your itinerary. have been enjoying stalking your videos for the past 6 weeks or so. Thank you for sharing! Look forward to more. your videos are helping with the itch to return to Eleuthera. Luckily we will be going back in June and so looking forward to it. one of your pins shows that you made it to Spanish Wells, but I think It's mistakenly linked to something else. would love to read your narrative and or see video if you do make it to Spanish Wells. We are thinking of visiting while on Eleuthera in June.

    Hello Guys == great site. I have followed your escapades for a couple of years now, and we leave in June for our RV trip to Alaska. (it is a lot of diesel fuel from South Florida.) We will retrace a few of your steps. Now -- as you do not have firm plans for the future I suggest you read the site for "SV Soggy Paws". Dave and Sherry have been out for a few years now. Dave is a classmate of mine from the US Naval Academy, and I would classify them as expert sailors. At one time Dave told me he would never own a catamaran, but guess what, they now have one. As you do other things, I am sure you will do plenty of research. I think their site has not only a blog, but also some reference material. I am sure Dave and Sherry would be glad to answer questions --unfortunately replies often take a while, I live in South Florida and also boat so have been to many of the local Florida places both here and the keys that you visited. Again -- great site, and I wish you the best in your future adventures.

It integrates with your iPhone to allow messages to be sent, plus it has a nifty map system that records your location as you travel. We always use one. BTW, it also has a fantastic 911 feature I think would be foolish to be without.

      Hey Jack, I see Jason and Nikki haven't had a chance to get back to you yet but I am sure they can shed more light on this when they get a chance. However, I was looking for the same answer to your question and couldn't find a good map plugin either. I had to do some tricky web development stuff but I think I found they use a plugin called pretty routes. I googled it and the first link (for me) is for code canyon - ironically the same place I pay for my themes. (They are really good.) It costs about $20 but for wordpress the people who design better plugins want to get paid for their craft. If you are looking for a simpler free map - I have been using Nomad World Map. Its very simple but its one of the best maps I've found for tracking places you've gone and places your going.

      Also, since this is my first time commenting on the Wynns webpage (longtime lurker) - SHOUT OUT to you guys. You were an inspiration and huge help for my wife and I going full-time in a 1976 Argosy trailer. Thanks!

        Thanks Trae! I was waiting to respond as I had reached out to the creators asking if we could get a discount code for our readers. Luckily they said yes! So, I have added the info above. Nomad World Map is cool too (especially for free) but not as interactive. All depends on what you are looking for and how you want to track your travels.

Neither of us are too concerned with all the new flashy stuff and don't particularly need a new RV to eat the depreciation on, so what are you opinions on buying an RV that old as long as the maintenance has been kept up wth and we're happy with the layout?

    Have you been by Gillette wyoming to have your picture taken with a coal truck or had coffee in downtown Sheridan wyoming yet? 8 years ago my wife and I took a trip to Wyoming on a job interview. We moved there 4 days later (from south Texas. In February). It was that big of an impression on us. And exactly what we needed at that time in our journey. I had just returned from my last Iraq deployment and the silence of the wide open and calm of the fresh snow helped us find the important things again. When you can here a fox tunneling under the snow or a mouse scurrying across the top of the lightly frozen snow then you know you have that quiet place everyone needs from time to time. We have been around the US, crossed the artic circle, watched the heat rise from the deserts of the middle east and walked the streats of central America but Northern Wyoming is still special. The people are hard, worn, true, and living (not just alive) all at the same time. Most the north part is either boom & bust oil towns or family ranches. More gravel than paved roads. People drive 3 hours to see the dentist, fly to Walmart on occasion, and every store will have a boot brush outside. Stick around a bit and you will see snow in every month of the year. The boom is over for much of that area so the ones you meet now are the real locals. The ones who will tell you about the day the first stop light was put up or tell stories about how the first train through the state broke down and there great grandparents got off never to leave. Coal built gillette but settlers on horses named it. Sheridan is the story book picture of what you think a gold town should be. Today they are both ranch towns. Leave yours keys in the ignition, wave hello to everyone ( I mean everyone), and don't be scared of the ratty diner just off main by the tracks (it's the best in town). I met a guy one day that let me use his phone when my company truck died. Everyone called him "crazy kenny" because he had been living by himself 40 miles from town in a one room Shack for almost 50 years. But, when I walked in I thought it was a museum. We talked for more than two hours about his photo collection. 40 years earlier he was the horse trainer for all the westerns filmed in the west. He had dozens of pictures with him and "The Duke" (john wayne), a couple presidents and countless other major public figures. These are the kinds of people who live in these little towns. I tell people all the time "Alaska is great, but Wyoming is where the real cowboys live." We are back in Texas again but Wyoming is still home.

    You find time to make it up that way, let me know. I'll introduce you to the unofficial mayer and historian of them parts.

      Wow Nate, you really know how to set a hook! What a great picture you just painted...really makes me want to go see and experience it all for myself. Thanks so much for sharing such a special place with us and it is a place we haven't spent enough time in. If we make our way there, we will definitely have to hit you up for suggestions! Any plans to move back again one day? Sounds like you left your heart there.

    According to the map it seems you haven't enjoyed the beautiful state parks of Wisconsin. As the camp host at Council Grounds state park in Merrill Wisconsin I would like to invite you to come visit our 508 acre state park and campground. I know you will enjoy our hiking trails, canoeing or swimming in lake Alexander and meeting new friends around a crackeling camp fire. I look forward to meeting you both.

    Hallo! LOVE what you guys are up to, been following you for a while now and you've inspired us to explore the country w/o a timeline, plan or schedule which is amazing. My wife, 4month old baby and dog are cruising the country in our Tiffin Allegro Breeze and have been out for a month now and we're having trouble finding a mapping app that we can track each of our stops with. We're using Roadtrippers ( http://bit.ly/TrippinTroianos ) but you can only list 60 stops and a lot of destinations aren't in the open source database they use. Looks like you found a way to use Google maps with a lot of destinations, we hit a limit early on. How does that fancy map of yours work?

        Hi Guys: I work as a ranger for CA State Parks at Hearst Castle, but also patrol the campground you'll be staying in. I am working Nov 8, 9, and 12. My wife and I bought a 25' Airstream almost two years ago and appreciate your website. We're currently figuring out how much solar we would need to rely on it as our main power source for recharging our batteries. We plan to upgrade the 12V Interstate batteries that AS provides to 6V glass mat batteries and add either a 2K or 3K watt pure sine inverter. It would be great to stop by while you're in San Simeon, if possible, to meet you and learn a bit more from you on this topic. Thanks and have safe travels!

    I live in Naples but last weekend we went and visited Sun and Fun in Sarasota. It is an awesome park. They have a a gym to die for! You have to check it out. They have video's you can watch but it doesn't do it justice.

    They have 2 HUGE hot tubs, indoor, outdoor pools, yoga, vibration plates, spas, Lapidary center, wood workshop (it's HUGE), tennis, etc. It's an all age RV resort. You will love it. Plus it is only about 5 miles from University Town new mall. (Sarasota) Whole Foods would be about 10-15 miles from the park. Also, Sarasota has a great Main St. with lots of great dining, pubs, etc. Check out St. Armands for great shopping and dining as well.

    Hope to see you rolling around in Florida. :)

    You can email us if you have any questions about Sarasota down to Naples. We used to live in Sarasota and now live in Naples but we travel back and forth and can get you any info you need.

    Hi Jason & Nikki,
    I read something this weekend in MotorHome magazine this weekend I thought you might be interested in if you ever had any issues with cross wind or big trucks passing you. Or, perhaps you could test and let the rest of us know how (or if) they really work.

    You can check it out here.

    Hi Nikki & Jason,

    It's Deb from Champagne Lakes. I just checked you in this evening.
    Just wanted to say thanks for the info you provided to me.
    I hope your stay is a pleasant one.

    Please don't hesitate to call me for "Fun Things to do" in the area. We have it all within an hours drive, Mountains, Prairies, Desert and Sea...Below are just a few ideas...

    As I mentioned, American Prospector and Treasure seekers shop in Temecula, (Tim & Sue) are great advocates for the PLP...Public Lands for the People. Also Front Street (Old Town) in Temecula is a fun visit right down the street from their shop.

    Gotta get a Julian pie, our fave, the Dutch Caramel.

    Of course all the coastal beachs in the area and Mt. Soledad is a nice visit too with a nice memorial, Great picnic area and awsome coastal views. It's also near La Jolla for Kayaking. They rent them there.

    Moon Light Theater in Vista has great Plays and Music

    Fallbrook. Avocado capitol of the world also has a Brewery and great Retro candy store on main street with new and old school candies.
    There's a fruit stand just 1 exit North on the #15 at the #76 off ramp to your right (Mom and Dads) that has great Avocados and local fruits and veggies.

    Toms Farms is a nice Autumn Season visit.
    San Diego has practically everything to do and there are endless back roads and outdoor activities North, South, East and West.

    Enjoy your stay. Hope to talk more with you while you are here

    To those more adventurous folks out there who like a nice hike. Don't pass up The Great Gallery in Utah. Take highway 24 south from Green River, Utah to the turnoff to Goblin Valley. Just before the turnoff there is a dirt rd going southeast. 30 miles of decent graded dirt rd to Horseshoe Canyon (formerly Barrier Canyon on older maps). It's then a three mile hike along the river bed to the Gallery. 100 ft of Barrier Canyon style pictographs and petroglyphs. Google it and be amazed. There are three (and if you are sharp-5) sites along the way to look at. Please take lots of pictures but leave only your breath behind. (If you see any careless, ignorant folks trash along the way please pick it up and take it with you. Thanks.

    While you're in the Chicago area, check out Walker Brothers pancake house on Greenbay Road in Wilmette. The Chicago Botanic Gardens off Greenbay Rd in Glencoe are also worth a look.

    Chicago is a great restaurant and museum town, with everything from Diana's Oop-ah to the Museum of Science and Industry and the Field Museum of Natural History.

    If you take I-57 south from Chicago, Allerton Park south of Champaign-Urbana IL is also worth a stop. That's where many U of I students go to relax after classes. I'd also check the entertainment pages of the Champaign News-Gazette for who's performing in the area.

    I once saw Cheap Trick for $2.50 and all the beer I could drink in the now-closed Chances-R in Champaign. It wasn't unusual for Dan Fogelberg to open for REO Speedwagon back in the day. I used to play onstage with Horizon Brass Rock on weekends, and study my head off for an EE degree at U of I during the week.

    George Benson, Jean Luc Ponty, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and other jazz and rock greats used to play regularly there.

    Hi.

    We are from Canada and last winter we took our new 5th wheel down to Texas and over to the Florida panhandle. While we were on the road I kept a simple blog so the folks back home could see what we were up to. I also included a simple map graphic so people could see where were were. It was a lot of work keeping the map up-to-date and I am not sure how effective it was because it was not scaleable.

    Now that I see what you have done with Google maps, I am interested in doing something similar. I haven’t had much luck adding places/markers on a Google map and have them displayed on other computers.

    Do you have any hints / tricks / advice on using Google maps to show our progress?

    We plan on leaving home in late August for the southern states and plan on continuing with our blog writing.

    Love your posts.

I would love to meet up with you at some point if you ever come this way. And thanks for all of the handy tips you pass along. We like to camp, although not full time, we are loving our trips.

    Hi Nikki and Jason, really enjoying your posts, our RV is nearly 30 years old and doesn't have any luxuries, it was originally an Army van, but it keeps going. We hired a nice RV in 1994 and went on a fantastic 4 week jaunt from home ( England ) to France and Italy, we stopped at every big city on the way, Paris, Lyon, Marseilles, Nice Venice, Rome Pisa ....got into all sorts of scrapes, stuck in mud, fined, nearly arrested, mugged by the carabinieri ! , but enjoyed the best time ever. When we got back we had the bug and just had to get an RV of our own, which we have had for many years now, our kids are grown up now but will have 20 years of holiday memories in our old van to treasure. I think one addition , the halogen oven, would be the most useful, the blow up boat with its 5hp engine , the most fun and we still do everything by map! we will only use sat nav in emergency, that way you get to see and meet the villages and people of the country rather than the motorway parks.We are off again in a few weeks once we get the brakes fixed

    Hi Jason & Nikki
    When you’re done with the RV show in Goshen IN and wondering what to do next. Please consider checking out the Studebaker museum in South Bend, IN. I’ve noticed on your map that you haven’t visited my home state of Michigan. From South Bend you can jump on US31 North and head to St. Joseph, MI. beautiful little town at the head waters of the St. Joseph River and Lake Michigan. Walk out on the pier and see the St. Joseph light house and watch the sunset, then ride the antique carousel. A little south on Red Arrow Hwy is Warren Dunes State Park. http://www.stateparks.com/warren_dunes_state_park_in_michigan.html there’s an RV park across the street. If this perks your interest in Michigan continues north and visit Holland, MI and points north. Sleeping Bear Dunes near Traverse City is absolutely beautiful. http://www.sleepingbeardunes.com/ the list goes on and on. Mackinaw Island (sorry Roy can’t go, too big for the ferry). But Roy can enjoy Big Mac and the entire Upper Peninsula is beautiful. Let your Michigan adventures begin. Have fun

        Holland, Saugatuck, and Grand Haven are nice Lake Michigan beach tourist towns with very neat downtowns. I'd say Saugatuck is more eclectic and hip while Holland and Grand Haven are a little more upscale. You can also stop at Crane's Orchards in Fennville and pick some peaches, cherries, or apples (whichever's in season) and grab a bite to eat at Crane's Pie Pantry (be sure to grab some cider doughnuts and cider). There's also a Crane's in the City restaurant downtown Holland.

Today, I found your web-site via a YouTube video - the one on replacing the faucet (best video ever) - and you are now bookmarked ! :-) I especially want to further investigate your tips on reducing Cost i.e. free camping and more Wild Camping as the overnight expense can really hit the pocket book of a retired [or any] person.

    Anyway, my question for you is the following - I too am capturing my travels for the benefit of friends back home who have Not yet retired (myself from education) who wish to live vicariously through my travels. I was taken with the quality of your video(s), especially the editing, and wonder what program you use for creating your YouTube videos. (find me as SailorGolf) I am currently using Windows Live Movie Maker which sometimes crashes and seems limited in it's quality (or maybe it's the videographer) and would like something 'better'. Of course Movie Maker is Free and cost (as always) is a consideration.

    I appreciate any feedback or recommendations you might make and look forward to seeing more of where the "Wynns" blow !

    Hello Nikki & Jason! We just purchased a 21' travel trailer with a 2' slide & we are SUPER excited to take our first big 2 week trip in August. Of course we will be doing some weekend trips in the meantime - we both still work full time; it's me, my hubby & our 2 dogs - we are in our mid 50's. My husband has had RV'ing experience with his parents when he was younger & he worked as an RV mechanic for a few years, so he's pretty knowledgeable about them (thank goodness).

    For our first big trip, we are going to the Badlands/Black Hills for a week and then west to Devil's Tower, Big Horn & Yellowstone, finalizing our trip to our cabin in northern Minnesota for Labor Day weekend.. Have you thought about taking a trip to the Black Hills area? I have been looking on Trip Advisor for reviews on all the campgrounds because there are so many in the Black Hills & Yellowstone areas!

    I love your Youtube channel and your web site. You both are so delightful and I really appreciate your sharing your wealth of knowledge.

        Devils Tower is first come-first serve campground only. VERY NICE THO.

        I can tell you about a fabulous boondocking at the edge of the SD Badlands.

        Even tho the Wynn's rig is too big, you could tuck into the forest by Deadwood. Found a handy spot in the woods. $5 tickets to the reenactment of the 'Trial of Jack McCall' (Killed Wild Bill Hickok) - audience participation and with a comedy twist.

        If Jason doesn't mind me mentioning this, you could go to our Facebook travel page at CBreaze Ontheroad. Feel free to message me or post on there.

        We just left the Badlands, Black Hills area, and Devils Tower. Now, swatting mosquitos in beautiful Minnesota.

All that time in college and we are stuck at desks, doing jobs that are meh. I want to thank you for all the hard work you guys put in and the inspiration you have given us. Also, I know there isn't many reasons to stop in Kansas, but if you find yourself in Hays, KS, and you haven't already been, there is a WONDERFUL brewery there. It is called Gella's and has great beer and food. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to read this post. Happy travels!

    I just stumbled upon your website the other day and I’m hooked. Hubby and I are about to hit a fork in our careers – with me getting laid off in Sept and him possibly in Feb. (we work for the same company that just merged) We already have a 5th wheel and I’m pushing hard for us to sell everything, kiss the kid goodbye as she goes off to college, take the severance money and hit the road. Really love your videos!

    I noticed you’ve never been to Arkansas. If you’re looking for natural beauty – come see our state. We are – after all – the Natural State. Check out Blanchard Springs Caverns and visit the caves, go digging for diamonds in the only ‘open to the public’ diamond mind, or float down the Buffalo River (the first river to be designated a National Park). We’ve got some great festivals like Toad Suck in Conway, River Fest in LR by the river, or visit Eureka Springs and stay at the famed haunted hotel. Or my favorite – just visit either the Ouachita Mountains or Ozark Mountains for some great hiking, waterfalls and just vegging out.

      Dana,
      Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Good luck to you and your husband with your new 'forced' adventure.
      Funny you should mention Arkansas, that's actually where I was born. We have family in Hot Springs, Little Rock and way up in the Ozarks so we've had the opportunity to explore pretty much the entire state over the years. The problem is when we're in Arkansas we're not working, so we are taking a break from our constant documentation and just enjoying the scenery.

        Well that makes sense - I thought it was weird that you hadn't been to Arkansas. I'm just north of LR (Cabot)...and so ready for our next adventure!

        Operation Downsizing starts in our household in the next few weeks - and we'll be putting all our crap on craigslist for sale. I'm slowly starting a blog and online store focusing on organic and eco-friendly products. We're giving ourselves about a year to get that biz up and going and getting everything in order so we can hit the road.

        I'm ready to get off this marry-go-round of commuting, working, sleeping and then starting it over again.

    Jason and Nikki, looks like you will be traveling up I-57 early this summer. You might want to stop by Rend Lake between Mount Vernon, IL and Marion, IL. It is a great COE park that has four different loops. We stayed in the South Sandusky loop this last summer and it is just about a mile from the beach area. They have great bike paths and the bike path goes right by the beach. The beach day area is free if you are staying in one of the campgrounds. It would be worth checking it out. Enjoy your videos and your write ups in the different campgrounds. Thanks for sharing. Also would love to get some more info on the Go Power Solar systems. Hope to incorporate a solar system at some point after we get on the road this fall.

    Check out the Starlight Theater (restaurant/bar) and laKiva (restaurant/bar) in Terlingua, TX. May only be open in evenings, try to find a schedule! Sit up to the bar with the locals at the Starlight Theater. Interesting characters live in this country!
    Be sure to watch the Mexicans ride donkey's back and forth across the Rio Grande on Farm to Market Rd. 170 West of Terlingua. (no fences here) There is also an old movie set along this road. Great for pic's.

    Nice RV park in Alpine is "The Lost Alaskan". Also in Alpine, from last weekend in February 2014-April 2014, see www.galleriesartists.com/trappings-of-texas.html‎ .

    If you get to Bandera, TX, it is one of our favorite spots. We've been there in the Spring. Plenty of bars with live entertainment and some good country two step dancing. Crazy mix of REAL working cowboys, wanna be's, tourists and good old local boys. Easy to fit right in wherever you go in the Texas Hill Country area. The Skyline RV Ranch is a nice place to stay. (walking distance from a bar where people tie up horses on Sunday afternoons to go to the Dance inside!) (well, enough about Bars....Have Fun in 2014)

    A few comments on your 2014 route -

    Not very familiar with the deep south, but very much so from Atlanta up through the mid-Atlantic states. You won't find much of interest from Atlanta to your South Carolina destination. However - if you decide to stray from the interstates - the extreme northwest mountains of South Carolina are incredible - almost looks like the Rockies. That area where South Carolina, Georgia, and North Carolina meet is beautiful.

    Ashville also very nice - think you will like that town where you can also visit the largest private (formerly) residence in the US - you would be visiting the extreme opposite of RV living, space-wise.

    And like others have said - as you will be at the very south-western end of this road - if you can take some time to travel up some of the Blue Ridge Parkway you will love it. Hundreds of miles of easy-going 2 lane road winding through the mountains with hardly a traffic light or bill-board in sight. Incredible.

    After you get to Chicago you've still got the rest of the summer, and the entire fall to explore. What I have heard is great is Michigan's U.P. (Upper Peninsula). Have not been there yet myself but it's high up my bucket list based on many recommendations from friends over the years. You could actually spend years just traveling along the shores of the Great Lakes.

    Good luck and let us all hear all about where you do go!

    In Jackson MS you can hop on the Natchez Trace Parkway and hop off around MM 205 at Hwy 82 eastbound to I-59 to B'ham. Interesting and historical.

    Tour the Biltmore Mansion and Gardens in Asheville, NC.

    About 76 miles west of Asheville (Hwy 74/19 W) the Nantahala River offers Beeeuuutiful white water rafting. I suggest the Nanahala Outdoor Center close to Bryson, NC

    Cherokee, NC is the Southern terminus of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    There is a Bourbon Trail south of Louisville around Bardstown, Frankfort and Lexington. Tour some distilleries.

Terlingua is an old ghost town with an awesome restaurant (Starlight Theater) with live music. They also have LaKiva which is an underground "cave themed" bar. Really cool place. Terlingua also has a ghost town cemetery that is worth the visit. If you go there, please pour a beer on my father's grave Edward H. Perrenot. He was a cool guy and loved beer.

        Hi Jason. Thanks for you response.

        My understanding of Alaska roads is that they are mostly paved but then one severe winter can change that in a blink as frost heaves and potholes are created and born! Hopefully you will be able to trek to Alaska at some point and it would be totally awesome if it was with our mini caravan.

        Happy Holidays and stay warm. To quote the Roy Rogers song “Happy Trails to You”.

    Hey Guys,

    I was at Crystal Crane Hotsprings at the same time as you guys. We were in Space #7 where there was actually some grass. I saw your website so checked it out when I got home. I looked at many of you videos which are awesome. You guys are living my dream, wish I could have met you.

    Anyway, in a video you mentioned traveling around to find the perfect place to settle. I’m just wondering of all the places you’ve traveled which towns have struck you the most. I currently live in Bend, Oregon. I have been here since 1977 and have seen the town grow from around 17,000 to 80,000 plus. It’s growing a little too fast and changing rapidly. I would love to know if you have seen any other towns that maybe somewhat similar but smaller.

    I’m also looking for a place that’s warmer in the winter near the ocean. I just got back from Gulf Shores, Alabama and liked it very much but haven’t spent anytime in Florida.

    I’m 57 years old and hoping to semi-retire in the next couple of years. If you have a minute and can shoot me some suggestions to check out in the near future it would be appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    GF

      Hey Greg! Glad you looked us up and too bad we didn't get a chance to talk while soaking! We loved Bend and while it's unique there are a few places that stick out in my mind. Next time you are in the Alabama area check out the small towns of Fairhope and Dauphin Island. If you feel like making the extra drive to Florida, we loved the small town of Port St. Joe. And if you want to continue on even a little further, Georgetown, South Carolina is adorable!

    If you recall we chatted a few minutes the first day of the Abbotsford RV Show beside “Windy”. My wife and I are high school sweethearts who met at a discothèque in 1965, married in 1967 the year Sgt. Peppers was released. If my math is correct, we are coming up to 47 years of marriage. We are leaving sometime around Oct 25 for Palm Springs (staying the month of November) then heading east to Florida. You mentioned some of your favorite stops along the way but we have forgotten those names. We did mention Fort Myers, Panama City, Austin etc however; you had lots of other interesting suggestions to make. Perhaps when you have some time from your busy schedules or while on the road, you can reply with some of those suggestions. By the way, in 1973 our boys were 5 & 2, I quit my job at Sears, bought an old 1960 McGavins Bread Truck (a step van) camperized it (sort of) and we took a year and traveled across Canada. No bathroom, an ice box for a fridge, a propane oven and cook top, a fresh water tank with a manual pump for water, no black or grey tanks. What an adventure we had. We called our rig “Lizzie”, max mph was 45 but we made it there and back reaching every province except Newfoundland. When we were in Nova Scotia we learned that the ferry to the “rock” was not running due to a CN Rail strike, the railway at the time ran the ferry. Thanks for inspiring a couple like us in our sixties to start dreaming of a road trip again. To throw caution to the wind and explore just what’s beyond the next corner.

      On your Route there are some wonderful places from CA to FL...too many to remember off the top of my head! Some of our favorites are as follows:
      Palm Springs - https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/palm-springs-ca

    Nikki and Jason, we would love to host you in Key Largo. We have a weekend home there (we live near Fort Lauderdale) and are avid Keys boaters. We don't fish or scuba, but we do snorkel and dock-hop. (Mostly, we dock hop.) We can show you around the upper Keys the way the locals do it.

    I admit, the invitation isn't entirely selfless. We are in the early stages of planning our exit strategy from the rat race and hitting the road full-time. Just bought our first ("practice") camper and are learning the ropes. I've launched a blog and am researching and beginning to play around with different business models.

    There's nothing we would enjoy more than to sit with you at a tiki bar, enjoying our cocktails and watching the sunset while we pick your brains about the full-time working RV lifestyle.

    Hope to see you. We promise to make the long trip worthwhile

    See that you are planning to be in Canyon de Chelly in a few weeks - great! We were there a couple of years ago and it is a fascinating canyon. Just be careful hiking around the upper rims as the rocks just kind of roll-off into a 600' drop-off. But you will see active cliff dwellings in the rock walls and the canyon floor is still farmed.
    As great as the canyon is cannot say much about the near by town of Chinle. Suffice it to say it will not make any notable mentions in any tourist guide books.
    But enjoy the canyon and surrounding desert area with it's many sandstone rocks - very pretty. Glad to hear you discovered this place because most people have never heard of it.
    Also - from there you are relatively close to Mesa Verde N.P. in the very SW corner of Colorado. If you have never been there you really should go since you are right there anyway, and seeing all the historic cliff dwellings is awesome. I know there is N.P. camping up on the mesa there, but you may prefer to stay in the valley below in a local RV park or Nat. Forest site as it is a drive up to the top of the mesa and you might prefer to take your Smart car up instead. But this N.P. is well worth the trip.
    Since you are heading north to Moab UT anyway it is not much out of the way to swing by Cortez CO and check out this park.
    Enjoy!

    I've been following you for awhile and enjoy your article. Couple of comments on your upcoming winter schedule. First - are you aware of the big RV show at Quartzsite, AZ ? It is about January 19 through 26, 2014. There are thousands of RV's that boondock in the desert for that period of time. We camp out with about 200 other RV's and have a ball. And, of course, there is the big RV show in town.

    The second is the Western Pyrotechnics Association show in Lake Havasu on President's day week-end. A fireworks show like none you've ever seen before.

    You should try to schedule these two events. Email me if you want more detail.

    Cheers.

    dear Wynns
    I've been enjoying your site for the last few days. I like you dreamed of sailing to the islands and it is a fun dream, that I shared with my wife.
    My wife and I sold our dream house, ( which was way too big as the kids left) and used some of the proceeds to purchase a Catalina 380 sailboat. It was a great boat, but I still had it surveyed and the surveyor gave me great advis: "LOW ball EM'".
    Sailboats sitting in saltwater need bottom cleaning at least monthly. If the A/C isn't running mold will form in every little corner. (Welcome to FL!).
    Our own boat overheated on a shake down cruise because of marine growth in the cooling system. Dockage fees in FL are higher than you might think and life in a marina isn't as romantic as you might think.
    All of these reasons are motivation for the seller and I share them with you as cautions in making your plans.
    Now I'm not trying to scare you but this was our experience,.
    We lived aboard in a first class marina, (Burntstore) for three years. We both still worked and found that when we had the time to sail, the tides were against us.
    It has been said that all waters in FL are a mile wide and a foot deep. When shopping remember that the draft of your vessel will dictate where and when you can go.
    Our experience ended badly. We ran aground in the Boca Grande Channel. We thought we'd wait for the tide to rise and sail away but as the tide continued to fall we ended up in a surf line. The pounding waves were so strong I worried the keel might break. When I went below to open the bilge to check, the hull shattered, showering me with tiny bits of fiberglass. By the time I turned around to pickup the radio mike, I was knee deep in saltwater.
    We abandoned ship and nearly everything we owned. Sea Tow ( who was standing by) picked us up and we watched as our dream sank.
    As I said I'm not trying to scare you but this was our experience.
    Some advise for you.
    1-Join Sea Tow, even though our vessel sank, we were legally responsible for towing it to port. The final tow bill was forty thousand dollars.
    2- Get good marine insurance. We had a policy with Great Lakes UK. They paid for the towing and gave us the replacement cost of our boat. twenty thousand more than we paid for it. Plus they paid the towing bill.
    3- Take sailing lessons. I reccomend Island Sailing in Naples or Offshore Sailing School.
    4- Never sail anywhere near a falling tide.

    Sorry to take so much space but I felt compelled to share this with you.

I live in NE Iowa and I truly believe there are some really beautiful landscapes to see here, especially in the spring and fall months. Trust me when I tell you, while the snow in the winter and the sun in the simmer are great, they just aren't all that pleasant to RV in!

    If you ever have a spring of fall trip to Ne Iowa in mind my family and I would love to cookout for you some good old fashioned burgers and brats in one of the lovely campgrounds and natural parks here! We could always just send some nice suggestions to you otherwise :-)

    Are you hiored to do this for a TV show or is this just what the two of you decided to do? How can such a young couple afford to travel for two or three years?

      Tammie, we were not hired for this. We knew we wanted to do something different so we worked hard and saved up and we sold everything! We also work from the road so we have income to help pay the bills and buy gas. Check out our FAQ page, it might give you a bit more insight.

    Dallas? Really? Blech. You'll have to put on pantyhose the minute you cross the county line!

    Not really, but as a native Texan, I highly recommend you consider Austin as your stop off - then, assuming you're headed West: Kerrville (get with me about RV parking on "the Ranch"), Marfa, Jerome, Sedona, etc.

    Want more info? Just give me a buzz.

      Laurie,

      Not much here in Dallas besides concrete art and good food. Austin would be a much better place to visit!

    No New York State yet? Head for Lake George and the Lake George RV Park. Beautiful in the fall. Within driving distance of Gore Mt, lots of trails in the park along with shopping outlets, Great Escape Six Flags, and so much to do!! Off 87N, exit 20 and hang a left!!

    And when you are in Cottonwood, AZ be sure to take a day trip to Jerrome, AZ. And also check out Tuzigoot Monument and Montezuma Castle. We live in Phoenix area and know that area well. Weather will be perfect during the day, cool at night. You might want to check out some of our travels at my website www.geographicwest.com. tnx, have fun

    Why haven't you been to South Dakota? It's a beautiful state with lots of parks and monuments to see.

      Janet, we are making our way that direction...it seems everytime we get close, something comes up that we have to rush away to.

    When you are in the Lake Havasu area be sure to check out Desert Bar or also known as Nellie E Saloon, it is just outside Parker. This place is exactly the kind of place you like to explore. Don't try to take your motor home back there, drive the car.

      You are right Bill, it is the kind of place we like to explore! We went there last time and are planning on going back!

    When and where in Mesa Arizona do you have planned? Do you plan on taking a trip to Tortilla Flatts? You probably won't be able to take the RV there (the roads are a bit narrow), but it would be a real nice day trip in the car. The lakes are amazingly beautiful there (breathtaking)
    If you come in February you can also go to the Renaissance Festival :) ......(turkey leg here I come)
    I would love to know the dates and plans. Maybe we could hook up :-)
    Be safe,
    Lisa
