Can You UPGRADE TO LITHIUM Yourself? // RVing w/ RESIDENTIAL APPLIANCES

By Less Junk More Journey | January 10, 2021

Residential appliances are spacious and make full-time RV life with kids more comfortable. Without great batteries, they make boondocking more challenging though. That’s why installing lithium is one of the first things we do with a new rig.

Our Campsite is UNDER WATER // RVing Tahquamenon Falls, MI

By Less Junk More Journey | October 25, 2020

Exploring awe-inspiring places like Tahquamenon Falls are some of the highlights of full-time RV life, but it’s not always glorious. Sometimes it’s a huge mud puddle and an off-road mess. When that’s the case, we remind ourselves that it’s all part of the journey.

CRAMMING OUR 5th WHEEL INTO A TENT SITE // Whitefish Point

By Less Junk More Journey | October 18, 2020

We get plenty of strange looks as we roll through the tent section of the state park with our big rig. Once we get settled, we explore the lighthouse, shore, and shipwreck museum at historic Whitefish Point, MI.

The Difference Between Snagging THE Site & A Site // Soo Locks

By Less Junk More Journey | October 11, 2020

Looking for that perfectly level campsite with jaw-dropping views? Travel pace, RV size, and how far in advance you plan are major factors in whether a campsite is magical or “meh.” Whichever we get, we do try to make the most of it.

FROM WORST TO FIRST: One of Our FAVORITE Campgrounds EVER

By Less Junk More Journey | September 27, 2020

In last week’s episode, we had some trouble squeezing into a tight campsite. While that park wasn’t actually the worst, this campground in Mackinaw City IS near the top of our favorites list. There is so much to do that we hardly have to leave the RV park at all. When we do, we hunt…

THE MOST FRUSTRATING CAMPSITE // Sleeping Bear Dunes

WE LOVE SILVER LAKE SAND DUNES // RVing MICHIGAN

By Less Junk More Journey | September 13, 2020

We have seen dunes at a distance, hiked on dunes, sandboarded on dunes, but until now, we’ve never ridden on dunes. Wow! We have the very best time at Silver Lake Dunes, MI.

RVing THE NETHERLANDS DURING A PANDEMIC

By Less Junk More Journey | September 6, 2020

Have you ever dreamed of RVing in the Netherlands? Well, Holland, MI might just be the next best thing to actually doing so. On the other hand, it might not be. We’re not sure. We enjoy our time there regardless.

BE PREPARED

By Less Junk More Journey | August 30, 2020

If you’ve watched our videos for any amount of time, you probably already know we aren’t always as prepared as we could be. That started from the very beginning of our journey, and we tell you all about that story in this week’s vlog.

THE WEIRDEST REASON WE’VE EVER CHANGED CAMPSITES

By Less Junk More Journey | August 9, 2020

Once we’re all settled in right across from the campground’s playground, we realize we just can’t stand staying in that site any longer. Why? It’s the strangest thing! We get ourselves moved and take an awesome hike exploring Indiana Dunes National Park.

A SOLUTION FOR OUR BROKEN RV AWNING
