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.

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 WEIRDEST REASON WE’VE EVER CHANGED CAMPSITES
