No better place to view the Northern Lights Nov21

No better place to view the Northern Lights

If you don’t believe in magic, a trip above the Arctic Circle will certainly blow your mind. Lights dancing across the skies is something to draw the awe out of anyone. God’s creation is at its best when seen with the Northern Lights, and Scandinavia is certainly one of the best places to appreciate it. Lapland Aurora Program I’ve been to Sweden, Finland and Norway only once; but, I was totally smitten with this part of the world. Arriving right after the Summer solstice, the light barely faded even at 2 a.m. Not the best time to witness the Aurora Borealis. But, I’m thinking of going back, and there’s a tour package that sounds amazing....

When it comes to ANC (automatic noise control) earbuds, I’m used to seeing large powerpacks, bulky adapters and large carrying cases. What a pleasant surprise to see how compact the Linner ANC earbuds were by comparison. With a successful Kickstarter program, everyone else will soon be able...

Just tried the new Adonit Snap stylus, and with one exception, it works great.  It’s a Bluetooth enabled stylus that works with my iPhone and takes very little room to carry.  Beautifully built, it is a pleasure to hold and use. Like most styluses I’ve tried, it has its strengths and...

Cleveland – your secret is out Oct05

Cleveland – your secret is out

Darn. Now the secret is out – Cleveland is one of the top five cities where you can live the good life on $40,000 a year or less.  AARP just released their October/November 2016 issue today, and Cleveland proudly ranks right up there. According to AARP The Magazine: “The Remake on the Lake: With its varied neighborhoods, world-class orchestra, thriving downtown, elite medical centers, and miles of biking and hiking trails along Lake Erie, this Rust Belt city is staging a mighty comeback.  It’s been fueled in part by the rising tide of boomers, who are 25.8 percent of the population….The appeal is also how easy it is to get to museums,...

Key lime pie, panthers and outlet malls – RV adven...

Got five days?  “Maximize your adventure opportunities with an RV.” That was our mantra for the second part of our 2016 RV adventures in Southern Florida.  Picking up a 37’ Class A Thor Challenger motorhome from Planet RV in Broward County, FL, we were off in search of three of Florida’s must-do activities. Key West, Florida If you’ve ever wanted to experience some of the most beautiful seaside locations in the US, Key West has to be right up near the top.  Even the 120+ mile drive through the Florida Keys is a visual treat with the multi-hued Atlantic Ocean out one window and the Gulf of Mexico out the opposite window.  Huge, puffy white...

Touring the Class A RV – inside and out

We returned the Class C motorhome after traveling to Georgia, and now we are venturing out again in a Class A motorhome from Planet RV in Broward County, FL.  Flying into Fort Lauderdale, their location (3030 Burris Rd, Davie, FL 33314) proved to be perfectly central to the places we wanted to visit. We wanted to see Savannah, GA and it was an easy 6-hour trip north in the Class C.  After picking up the Class A RV, we were off to explore Florida’s southernmost destinations – Key West and the Everglades.  We’ll finish off with Southern Florida’s largest outlet mall outside Fort Myers. But show us the motorhome Our biggest request from our...

When buying an RV you could use a friend in the bu...

Earlier this year, we started discussing RV travel in No Boundaries For Us magazine, and we wrote about our experiences based on traveling in pop-ups, truck campers, and van campers. But we’d never tried the “big boys” of camping, the Class C and Class A RV’s. Heading south, we had the good fortune of connecting with Gigi Stetler of Planet RV in Broward County, Florida.  We wanted to take out a couple different RV’s so we could compare and contrast the different models and classes available. Luckily, she had a number to choose from during the limited dates we were available.  We made our reservations last month and began our travels last...
