17. The RV Guide to South Dakota and Badlands National Park

You know you love a place when you find yourself coming back again and again. South Dakota is that place for us. The Black Hills are so gorgeous, and we love this state. In this episode, we tell you about our most recent stay in South Dakota. In our review segment, we talk to you about upgrading the coach to help it drive better.


16. RV living is not always pretty -- things do break

It's not all rainbows, bears, and mountains when you live in an RV. Things do go wrong. In this episode, we talk about the last couple of days of the Teton National Park and our drive to South Dakota. Our stairs break - again - and it triggers us to tell you about all the things that have broken in our BRAND NEW RV.


15. Staying and visiting Grand Teton National Park and Southern Yellowstone

In our final segment of the Yellowstone National Park area, we stayed in the Teton National Park. We spent a little over a week visiting Grand Teton National Park, and we got to see a TON of wildlife. We spent a day in Yellowstone finishing up a few things we wanted to see in the park's southern half. Shownotes:

We are officially obsessed with Yellowstone. As of the recording of this podcast, we have already spent about three weeks in the area. It's so extensive and impressive.

11. Fun things to do in the Black Hills, South Dakota, with your family

In the 11th episode of Off The Beaten Path but Not Lost, we talk about things to do in the Black Hills, South Dakota with your family. To claim a state, we have to stay in the state and actually do something. It also has to be a state we visited after we started our full-time Journey. Of the 17 states, we are claiming - South Dakota sits at the top. Shownotes:


10. Adventuring with the Jeep Badge of Honor Program and their fun 60+ trails

6 - Boondocking and free camping tips for getting the most of your free sites

In our latest episode, we discuss boondocking and free camping tips. Boondocking is camping that is self-contained and off-grid. You might also hear it called dispersed, primitive, wild, or dry camping. It all means the same thing - not connected to commercial power, water, or sewer.


5 - All about Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios

We had so much to talk about on the topic of Disney World that we had to break the podcast into two parts. Last week we spoke about annual passes, COVID, campgrounds, and Magic Kingdom. This week we're going to wrap up our Disney conversation talking about the other three parks - Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.

We spent two months in the Orlando, Florida area at Disney World. In this episode, we discuss annual passes, RV campgrounds within 25 minutes of the parks, COVID, and Magic Kingdom. This is part 1 and part 2 will be next week. Show notes:


3 - Family things to do in Las Vegas (and the surrounding area)

After spending a month in the area, we have compiled a list of free family things to do in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. We stayed in Las Vegas at the end of 2020 and into the new year. It was a lot of fun, and we explored some off-the-beaten-path adventures that didn't break the bank. You will find Jeep trails, road trips, attractions, and fun things to do on the strip. Shownotes:


2. Move Day and Road Trip Tips

In this episode, we give you our move day and road trip tips on keeping your kiddos (and yourself) happy. Our road trips in the Jeep can be a couple of hours to all day in the car. Many of our road trips are going to a Jeep trail, so that's even longer in the Jeep. Our move days can be from an hour to five hours. We have even had a couple of nine-hour days, and that's a long time driving in an RV. Shownotes -


1. Exploring Utah from the beautiful Flaming Gorge to Valley of the Gods

This inaugural episode included a lot of firsts. It was our first time exploring Utah, our first mountain pass, and our first Harvest Host experience. We also dive into a discussion about boondocking near Moab, fun off-road trips, dinosaur tracks, and so much more. This trip was on the east side of the state, and we will be returning to visit the other side of the state at a different time. Shownotes -
