RV Experience at YMCA of the Rockies

Snow Mountain Ranch, CO Cool mornings, mountain scenery, friends around the fire, and rewarding work in a Christian environment – that’s volunteering and RVing at Snow Mountain Ranch (SMR). We’re Ernie and Sue Stones from Canyon Lake, TX, and we’ve volunteered at SMR for the past three summers.  The first thought that comes to mind […]

Workamping @ Disney World

My wife, Laura and I have been full-time RVing since August of 2011. After traveling the country for 6 months, we settled in Clermont, FL as a base of operations. We rented a site for 3 years before buying our own RV Lot at a luxury RV Resort. It is a place to call home, […]

Wrap-Up: Workamper Rendezvous 2017

The time flew past with fun filled days or RV Training, putting the final touches on the Workamper Rendezvous and then hosting 200 attendees for the live event just last week! It’s been […]

RV Travel Preparations:

Once again, we are in the process of packing up and setting off to our next destination.  I’d like to say that we are up and out of a place within 15 or 20 minutes, but that typically isn’t the case.  When it comes to packing up our 26 foot motorhome and leaving,  we have learned that this process can take a couple of hours, minimum.  If we are work camping at a location for a month or more,  we may spread out the tasks over a period of days.

Singing For Our Dinner

Some might think “Let’s Take This Show On The Road” is a nice expression, a whimsical notion.  Well, we, One Story, decided to make it our Truth.  Now, we are no strangers to singing for our dinner.  Living in a resort town for the past four years we have been able to get pretty well established as a musical duo getting to play our music at many local venues and even picking up a few residencies along the way.  So when making the decision to become a full time RV family it was pretty easy to figure out how we would make the bulk of our income.

The REAL Truth about Full Time RVing with your Spouse

When my wife and I were first looking into full time RVing, we read lots of books and blogs about the subject. Every book or blog we read had the following one sentence for couples, “Make sure you love your traveling partner!” This was good advice, but it wasn’t specific. It didn’t help me much. […]

Background on City of Rocks State Park

The City of Rocks State Park IS a page right out of history.  This natural wonder was created millions of years ago, a product of a volcanic monstrosity. The searing fragments piled high forming giant masses, a sort of welding process.  Eventual erosion created the pillars and other various rock formations we see today.

There are still signs of early inhabitants throughout the area, most notably grinding tools. Wildlife and vegetation specific to the Southwest bring life and variety to this bedrock. Read more about Background on City of Rocks State Park
