    Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mammoth Cave

    $0.00

    Its Memorial Day weekend and we’ve traveled a couple of notches south to vacation near Mammoth Cave National Park in Cave City, KY. The national park offers only primitive campsites (which means no electric service) so we are staying a few miles down the road at an RV resort. In this part of the country, the term “RV Resort” is loosely applied and commonly means a giant family playground with lots of places to plug in a trailer.

    ZIKA – The Latest Emerging Virus

    $0.00

    Just when you have gotten over the Ebola scare (though you will hear about it again), here comes another viral infection though spread by mosquitoes.  Zika virus was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in monkeys and the first verified human infection occurred in 1968.  Since then it has smoldered in countries near the equator where 2 strains have evolved, one in Africa and one in Asia.  The first infections outside of Africa and Asia occurred in Micronesia in 2007.  Since then, the virus has spread throughout the southern Pacific islands and arrived in South America a few years ago.  Dense populations of both humans and the vector mosquito has caused Zika to explode in Central and South America.  At the time of this article, about 20 cases have been reported in the US, all from people who traveled to areas where the disease is present (such as Brazil).

    Each summer some of my friends and I try to do an equestrian vacation.  In early 2016, one friend, who lives in Canada, discovered the web page for the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (www.trailridevacations.com). After looking at this myself, we decided this would be our trip for 2016 and sent in our deposits. We were soon joined by 2 of my friends from Georgia and another friend from Ohio. Our trip would be in Waterton Lakes National Park in the Province of Alberta, Canada, the sister park to Glacier National Park in Montana. None of us had been to this park before.

    We return to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls time and again because the area has so much to offer. It’s all the stuff we like to do – outdoor, natural splendor, and touristy. We revisited several favorites and added some new experiences, too. The weather was perfection, and it’s a gorgeous ride cruising Niagara Parkway. The drive is dotted with islands of flowers and fountains, and the profusion of colors is simply wondrous. Walking paths alongside disappear invitingly into lush woods, and the air is clean and crisp.

Small and slightly primitive, the campground offers only sixteen electric sites, tucked into lush and shady groves.

    RV Patrol:Asheville, North Carolina

    $0.00

    We had a wonderful camping experience at Campfire Lodgings, just north of downtown Asheville, NC. This privately owned campground is located at the top of Goldview Knob, and is worth the steep climb to get there. The owners have thoughtfully provided encouraging signs along the way to keep you moving, like “Just a little further” and “Ya made it!” But do take the time to unhook your towed vehicle before you ascend their gravel road.
