About RedDog’s pack

Two humans, three dogs, a 40′ RV and a load of bicycles, kayaks, camera gear and all kinds of creature comforts. This is our second year of traveling. Our official ambassador is Red Ryder, our fox red Labrador Retriever. Second in command is Henry, the Jack Russell Terrier. We rounded out our group in 2017 with Gumbo, another fox red Lab.

When we retired, we had a conversation about what we wanted to do. Travel of some kind was definitively in the plan, but where and how? We’ve both done our share of international travel. Flying though, has lost its appeal in the last few years though, as has staying in hotels, rental cars and all that jazz. We decided we’d much rather take time to explore the land mass known as North America.

This blog is mainly intended to be a way to tell you what is going on in our lives as we embark on an adventure. If you’ve read this far then I thank you for that. I hope you find the blog entertaining at best, and at the very least, a cautionary tale about traveling in an RV.

See you down the road one day.

    Can’t think of a better way to see our beautiful country, but I didn’t see golf clubs in your list. Plus your RV is a lot bigger than the one that I had that I am sure Ben remembers. Walmart wasn’t around then, so fees and campgrounds that could accommodate us were a problem. Have a great and safe trip.


    1. We’ll take the clubs to Florida, we’ll have plenty of other stuff to do on this trip! Wal Mart, Sam’s Club, Cracker Barrel, even casinos cater to RVers for overnight parking, as long as you ask nicely and are courteous. Smart marketing tool, and it does save a bundle if you’re driving through. It’s not considered kosher to spend more than a night–two at the most.

  2. Don’t know where you come in Florida, but I am going to be moving to Naples in Oct-Nov. So hope to see you when you are down here. I may even have a dog by then. Bought Jamie a Persian kitten but he is in Ohio now. I am sure she will be in Florida with him most of the winter.
