Written by on April 18, 2014 in People & Places with 0 Comments

Recently, on a five week trip down south in my RT Adventurous, I visited my friend in Clearwater for a few days.  Jackie has been down there a few years and knows all the best spots to go- one of which was Tarpon Springs. I hadn’t read about it, but a lot of folks had […]

An Affordable Long Term RV Resort in Florida

An Affordable Long Term RV Resort in Florida

I was tired of taking a half hour to get dressed in my snow gear to walk the dog.  Being half Husky, she loved the weather- but I could take only so much.  So I packed Olga, my trusty RT Adventurous, threw in the kibble, the dog and off we went.  South. I met Mike […]

When I do plan my trips, which is about half the time, I like the ALL STAYS app.  I can find state, national, BLM and private parks to camp.  They have links to websites, routes and maps, phone numbers and general info. Best of all, I can switch to satellite imaging and look at the […]

Horseshoe Beach, Florida: A hidden little gem of a place

Horseshoe Beach, Florida: A hidden little gem of a place

Written by on March 6, 2014 in Laura Robinson, People & Places with 1 Comment

Horseshoe Beach, Florida What a little gem! This tiny, northwest Florida coast, fishing village of 300 year round residents, was established in 1935 by Burton Butler  and CC Douglas, who bought the land from a large lumber company for $324 and later sold lots to the other squatters for $10. It remains a quiet community […]

In the immortal words of Roseanne Rosaennadanna,  “It’s always something!” A Roadtrekking friend, Pogo, invited a bunch of us (Facebook: Roadtreking the Group), down to his place in Gautier, MS for a Mardi Gras get together, and I decided this would be a wonderful way to kick off the 2014 travel season.  Plus, I have […]

Maps? Check. Shorts? Check. Binoculars, scope and camera? Check. Canine Co-pilot who can’t read a map worth a darn? Check. Olga, my trusty Roadtrek camper, is ready to be de-iced, gassed up and loaded for trekking. I received an invitation that I couldn’t refuse from the Godfather of the Gulf. One of my Roadtrek Facebook […]

A year in my Roadtrek

Written by on December 18, 2013 in Laura Robinson with 16 Comments

It’s that time of year when we look back at the year now ending. For me, 2013 ended up being a great year for me after a rocky start. My step-father died Dec. 30th. He was a great man who had raised me since I was 9 years old.  I also had some mysterious tumors in […]

Thanksgiving in Kansas City

Written by on November 27, 2013 in Laura Robinson, People & Places with 3 Comments

There is no better public Thanksgiving Day tradition than the Plaza Lighting in Kansas City.  With thousands of spectators, entertainment, shopping, food and celebrities, no other city can touch this kick off of the holidays on Thanksgiving night. And after stuffing ourselves, it is a wonderful way to cap off the night. Of course I […]

Horsing around with my RV

Horsing around with my RV

Written by on November 14, 2013 in Laura Robinson, People & Places with 5 Comments

Horses are not my specialty.  A couple of years ago I took my nieces to a dude ranch in CO.  While it was fun and the food amazing, I only rode in the mountains one day. The rest of the time I took lessons in the indoor arena. I wasn’t a great student; my horse […]
