We are living large and cheap and enjoying life. Traveling America we are meeting lots of interesting folks and learning a lot of traveling tips. Building inexpensive campers and traveling all over America, that’s the plan. Plus we are doing it on a retirement budget. The key to traveling on a small budget is simple use everything you know to save a dollar! Simple things that we do is; spend as much time in National Parks and National Forest as possible. Always use your senior discount pass when paying for the campsite. When we travel on weekends we locate an Elks Lodge in the area to stay. Sometimes the National and State Parks are full on the weekends, the Elks Lodge is almost never full. Also join PassPort America and save 50% off in a lot of RV parks.
Remember this; Not all who wonder are lost!
If you have ideas on saving money, traveling cheap your opinion is welcomed.
I would like your input thoughts and ideas, share them.
We will be leaving for New Hampshire Aug 143th with a week stop in Gatlingburg TN.
Can’t wait to see our TN friends.
We spent 4 nights in Georgia at General Coffee State Park. We used a Groupon discount and happy to get a chance to visit the park.

We are starting to plan our next trip in July and August of 2018.
Our friend Larry from Fort Worth TX named it “The Rim Run”, I like that.
The plan is to head north to Wisconsin then across to Washington State.
Then south to northern California and back east. That should be another great trip.

Mini Camper #2 West bound trip.
We finally got started on our western US trip in late March 2017.
We stopped in San Antonio TX for 3 weeks and worked on my sons fence.
I decided to limit our trip to; New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. By limiting out travel we could get this trip done in about three months.
The pictures from our west trip can be seen using the link above; “Mini Camper 2 West Trip”.
This is a picture from the Elks Lodge in Rapid City SD.
Everyone came by wondering if we lived in the little trailer!
Our blog page above is a week to week blog of our trip west.
