Hello Winnebago!

Hello Winnebago!

After a few good seasons with our Keystone Hideout, we decided it was time to upgrade.   After a bunch of research and dizzying comparisons, we landed on the Winnebago Minnie Plus 27BHSS.   This rig was the exact combination of features and design we were looking for with very few compromises. The flipped floor plan, I call it the “L”, was very attractive to us.  It changed it up enough to make it feel like something totally different.  This floorplan is available from…

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

Its not uncommon for Ash and I to visit Las Vegas as a quick weekend getaway in the March timeframe.  Since we were going to Disneyland in March, we decided that Vegas would be a great place to stop and give us an opportunity to show Lily.  This would also be our first time camping in Vegas, so we started searching for places and checking what shows would be there during our dates. After a quick search on Campendium, it…
