During our 9-month RV trip with our 3 children, we did a lot of dry camping—one of the many ways we were able to afford the trip.
We also stayed at some state and national parks, and we chose some private campgrounds as well. Here are our favourite campgrounds from our adventure, in no particular order.

You may have noticed the distinct lack of posts for the last week and a bit. After finishing my Mind Maps for Freelance Success book, I took a mini vacation of sorts. I didn’t have any articles due this past week, so I turned off the early alarm, slept in, and enjoyed our visits with friends and family (details to follow in the next post). I’m now back at work until we return home, at which point I’ll be taking a break from freelancing, most unfortunately. But there’s a time for everything, I guess.
