Several weekends ago, we had the opportunity to camp with friends who rented a cabin at the Jellystone Park Bremen next to our camping space. Camping at a Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Bremen brought back so many memories for me! Not that I camped at any of the parks when I was kid, but I have fond memories of watching Yogi Bear cartoons on Saturday morning with my parents and picking out merchandise at my local Warner Brothers. Jim and I have introduced Bryce to the old cartoons and have fostered a fondness of the bears and Mr. Ranger in him. It only seems fitting that we camp at Jellystone Parks when we get the chance.
So, if you are like me, the idea of buying a generator is exciting and brings thoughts of freedom from ‘the plug.’ It is the final link from truly going unplugged. After all, we have holding tanks, we have fresh water tanks, why not have the trifecta and have portable power too, right?!? However, when you start trying to figure out which generator to purchase, reality sets in. Generator Wattage? Dual Connection Kits? Now you have to figure out what size generator from the max wattage to running wattage, what fuel source is best, and maybe the most important – how loud?
You may be camping, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look beautiful! Who said you can’t be an RV beauty queen? With the popularity of travel trailers, 5th wheels and RVs, the creature comforts of a regular sticks and bricks home are all there – including everything we need to make ourselves look – and feel – beautiful! That being said, there are a few products that will save time, water and electricity while you are primping for the day ahead in your RV.

The Travelers Rest KOA campground, also known as the Travelers Rest/N. Greenville KOA Campground was a welcome retreat just outside of Greenville, South Carolina. We stayed two nights at the campground and not only enjoyed the activities at the campground, like ceramics painting, but also toured Downtown Greenville and took Mr. B to the Curious George Exhibit at the Upcountry History Museum.
