Beaver Island Webcam

Beaver Island Webcam

Have you been to Beaver Island, Michigan? It’s the largest island in Lake Michigan and part of the Beaver Island archipelago. You can get to the island by plane or boat. We’ll be going there in a few weeks, by boat, and just bringing our tent and renting a car while we’re there. The campground is only $5/night! The island has a population of only about 650 and much of the island is unpopulated, so we’re expecting it to be quiet!  The island…

A Visit to Nature & Me RV in Traverse City

A Visit to Nature & Me RV in Traverse City

We live an hour away from Traverse City, Michigan, but we’ve been there only a handful of times because both of our kids were absolutelyterribleawful in the car as babies. I’d go months on end without leaving town so we didn’t have to endure the torturous rides. Seriously, it was awful. I adore Traverse City and every time we go it feels like a mini-vacation. This weekend my car had a little well-visit checkup there, and we decided to make a day…

Weekly Roundup of 5 Riveting Airstream (Love) Deals

Some of the links may be coming from sites like eBay or Etsy, so I can’t guarantee that the items will be available. If you sell something Airstream-related or have found a really awesome product,…

Pie Irons For Camping

Pie Irons For Camping

Pudgy pies. Campfire pies. Mountain pies. Hobo pies. Whatever you happen to call them, the pie iron is one of the best damn inventions on the planet, as far as I’m concerned. Pie irons were popular in the ’60s and ’70s and were known as tonka toasters. Generally, they were used with (presumably) white bread and pie filling, but recipes have evolved to include pizza fillings, eggs, lunch meats, and basically anything else you can dream up. I’ve been using…
