When planning a camping trip with a little one, it seems like the list of “essentials” can get much longer than when I was just packing for my husband and I. From special blankets and toys to bulky baby gear and diapers, there’s no doubt about it - kids come with a lot of stuff. And when our son started eating solid foods, then came along a list of feeding essentials. Now that our little man is two years old, we have a pretty good system in place for making meal and snack times as easy as possible. And it all started out with a homemade “baby feeding kit”.

O.K., now is the season to really get out there and enjoy our National Parks!  The crowds have diminished as have the number of cars clogging the roads, parking lots and pull outs.  The only drawbacks are that services begin to shut down, as the parks begin their changeover to the winter season.

But don’t despair, there are abundant locations that cater to the fall season RVer!  It just takes a bit of research in the parks your itinerary will take you through.  Often the northern National Parks will start closing their services and campgrounds by the third week of September, with final services closed by mid-October.

When I conducted my dry camping (aka Boondocking) tips seminar at the recent Enumclaw RV Show, I was asked by several people what is the best RV for dry camping. While some types of RVs are more suitable for dry camping than others, the question really should be, “What features should I look for in an RV if I want to use it for dry camping?”.
