The Northwest RVing Blog site is hosted by MHRV (Manufactured Housing and Recreational Vehicle) Show Association. Each year, MHRV presents three important trade shows in the greater Seattle area to promote and display the RV Lifestyle.

Small Kitchen in Your RV?

youtube“What do you eat?  I mean, you can’t possibly have many pots and pans and utensils in there….or store much food.”  If we only had a nickel for every time we’ve heard this question over the past 9 years. “You’d be surprised,” we always respond.  It doesn’t matter how big your kitchen is, it’s the size of your imagination that really matters!  All anyone really needs to cook is a heat source, a pot, and a spoon.  We are two foodies on the move and we have whittled our kitchen essentials down to what we need to make incredible meals, all with just a two-burner stove or a campfire, a 12V fridge, and a few cooking essentials -- including just one small electric kitchen appliance.  Can you guess what it might be?

Added RV Shelving

youtubeAre you one of the thousands of newbies that have taken up RVing over the past year? Are you overwhelmed on where to store everything that you need to take with you and how to keep it in place during transit? Do you just end up piling everything in a closet or baggage compartment then sorting through it at camp when you need something?

Makoshika State Park is the next one of those places.

youtubeAs I write this in early June, there are still no updates on the Canadian/US border opening. There are some rumors out there that the US is going to open their side of the border on June 22, the day after the latest one-month unilateral agreement expires. This would mean that individuals in Canada would be allowed to cross into the USA, although even if this rumor is true, there are no details on whether proof of vaccination would be required. Just the other day, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that he had no intention of rushing into re-opening the border, even if other countries are pushing. Assuming the above scenario, it would mean people could travel into the USA freely, but would continue to have to quarantine when returning to Canada. Not really a sustainable plan.

PNW wikitravelorgIt’s great to live in our neck of the woods! We have some of the most scenic highways and byways on the continent. For instance, here in the lower mainland of British Columbia, we can go snow skiing and water skiing on the same day for much of the year. For the rest of the year, we can explore the ocean and the mountains on the same day. While we share the same lakes, rivers, and streams with many other areas of North America, some would argue that we take our proximity to our glorious Pacific Ocean for granted.
