We’re staying in Southern California for a few weeks to get things settled with our paperwork in California. Then we’re heading up to South Dakota & Yellowstone National Park with a few stops along the way.

Kevin and I have a preoccupation with kayaking. I’m doing alot of research on kayak racks & kayaks. Were going to use the kayaks for calm waters, fishing & fun. My research is telling me to rent kayaks this year to see if they’re important enough for us to bring all over the USA on top of our jeep wrangler.

I’ve looked at the weather. I decided to move up North to hopefully cooler weather so my camping schedule must change. :) The camping schedule depends on the weather and how much time we have. Its a good thing I’m flexible. :)

Happy RV Camping!
