Two Wheel Ramblin (Added 4/19/18) "Dan & Sarah have both loved and enjoyed motorcycle riding for years and each of them have traveled all over the country on 2 wheels with Dan in particular riding in all 48 states plus Alaska. However they have decided they wanted more than just a week trip here or there, so they sold their house and ventured into the full time RV living to chase the good weather and go find those destinations they have been dreaming of visiting. Along the way they decided to pick up mountain biking for those areas where bicycles are more appropriate. Their RV they have started this advenure in is a 2012 Keystone Raptor 4014LEV being pulled by a 2000 Volvo 610 Semi truck.

I also like humor, in whatever form it presents itself. I thought if I tried combining the two, maybe others would get a kick out of it, and we could all have a laugh...at me...and I'm ok with that. Please enjoy, come back often, and by all means, don't take it seriously!"

For-Camping (Added 11/17/11) From their "What is this blog about" - You know…sometimes we wonder, too, what this blog is all about. So far, we don't get many legitimate comments. We do, however, get a lot of "comment spam!" We started off, when our kids were young, tent camping all over New Hampshire and our neighboring states. Over the years, we made the common progression from tent camping, to a pop-up camper, and for the past several years we've enjoyed our travel trailers. We've ventured further from home and enjoyed longer trips, but we both still work and so are still somewhat limited in how far and for how long we can go.
