Spring RVing

PRVS15 Callout RVDocGary Bunzer, the RV Doctor

Greetings to all fans of RVing in the Great Northwest! Ah, you can feel it can’t you? The attitudinal shift as winter’s wrath begins a slow passage to the back of our memories and is immediately replaced by spring’s welcoming blossom! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the air is a bit drier and we’ve been feeling the itch to get that RV up and running, just pining for that first trip of the new RVing season!

Adventures in Montana

For those of you that have attended my Boondocking 101 seminar and are still a little apprehensive of taking your first step into the boonies; I will be sharing a few back-country adventures complete with boondocking locations on and off over the next several months. So be ready to capture some coordinates, enter them into Google Earth, apply what I have taught you and prepare to head out in the RV this summer.

First up will be a little-known mining camp in western Montana known as the Smuggler Mine.
