Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

What a splendid adventure! You've taken some wonderful photos and made your journey come alive for us. I'm so glad you got that waterproof camera!

What a fun ride,Gaelyn! My hubby would be so envious. He use to be a rafting guide on a river in West Virginia. The video is great, you must have a steady hand to go thru the rapids and hold the camera. I would be holding on for dear life. Have a great day.
