A few months prior to us throwing off the bow lines of our land yacht, we watched a few of our new 'younger' RV friends on...

2PSNAPOD's Favorite National Parks & Monuments

2PSNAPOD's Favorite National Parks & Monuments
​We are BIG fans of National Parks as they represent so much of the history and beauty that our country has to offer. We purchase an America the Beautiful pass each year for $80…a small price to pay, in my opinion, to be able to visit as many parks and/or monuments as we are able. However, there are other passes for seniors, disabled and milit...
