Gypsy Guides GPS based Audio Tours

I cannot imagine visiting a National Park without Gypsy Guide. after our first experience at Yellowstone. Gypsy is a GPS audio guide that educates and entertains visitors of all ages. Gypsy tells stories, gives directions, makes hiking and sightseeing recommendations and more for the most popular National Parks. Most parks are available for $10 or less and will save you a lot of wasted fuel and energy navigating the park.

We pay full price for the Gypsy Guide tours (no discounts or sponsorships) and LOVE them.

Escapees & Xscapers RV Club

Escapees and Xscapers are both parts of the same RV club. It’s a great resource for RV-related education and services. We have used Escapees mail service since 2017 and would recommend it. Most of our RV friends have been made through Xscapers and at their great events.

Harvest Hosts and

During our first year of full-time RV travel, we were Harvest Host members. We loved the ability to stay at farms, vineyards and more overnight. Most locations were destinations in and of themselves. And we made some great memories. I recommend every RV try Harvest Hosts at least once. If you sign up using our link, you’ll get $15 off your first year of membership.

Currently, we have a Boondockers Welcome membership (same parent company as Harvest Hosts) which allows multiple night stays on private property. We find it works better for our travel style than single-night stays.

Lion Lithium Battery

We purchased our Lion Lithium battery bank in 2018 (six batteries) as part of our solar upgrade project. After seeing other lithium brands advertising with all of the RV influencers, we were honestly turned off. Plus Lion Energy offered a superior product for a lower price point.

Since upgrading to solar and lithium, we’ve camped offgrid more often than not and we don’t regret the investment for one minute. Otherwise, we would have missed the beachfront spots in Baja or the amazing National Forests near our National Parks.

Lion has a limited warranty on their batteries and we have had them replace a faulty battery years after purchase without any pushback.
