Living the Lake Life

The Wandering Dolphin crew is slowly adjusting to life back in the Great White North — Minnesota. We've had a busy first month back, with a combination of seeing friends and family, attending a wedding, hosting a family reunion, and looking for jobs. A lot of Andy's family came into town for the wedding weekend, and we... Continue Reading →

When Driving Near a Motorhome…

After taking the long way back to Minnesota from California, Andy and I came up with a few things vehicle drivers may want to note when driving near a motorhome — especially if they don't want to upset a larger vehicle driver. Andy was pretty adamant that we share these tips. I have tried to write... Continue Reading →

RV Responsibilities

We may be parked near a lake in a driveway, but we still live in a motorhome! Though we are showering indoors (mmmmm, water pressure), we are still mostly living in the RV, which means that we are running off of our water tanks. We have power, but we do not have full hookups --... Continue Reading →

Living a Smaller Life

Oh Montana, Montana

Leaving Idaho, we decided to tackle our longest drive of the journey so far. We typically try to keep days around 300 miles or less, but we were feeling ambitious. So, we went for a long one. After the breathtaking drive through western Montana and a not-as-stunning drive toward our campground, we finally reached our... Continue Reading →

A Weekend in Idaho

We spent a beautiful Memorial Day weekend in Idaho at Farragut State Park just north of Coeur d'Alene. The weather was nearly perfect, with 75-degree, sunny days. Our campground was packed to the brim! We'd booked the last spot available. But it had a HUGE benefit of having not one, not two, but five disc... Continue Reading →

Packing in a Motorhome

For those of you who’ve just started following the Wandering Dolphin and haven’t read back to the beginning blogs, I wanted to share a bit of traveling info. What does it mean to pack-in the RV? “Packing-in” the RV is the process we go through to get on the road. We have things that sit... Continue Reading →
