Back to School—On the Road?
Roadschooling is nothing new to the thousands of families who travel the U.S. while teaching their children in an RV. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic is upending the traditional school year, more families are taking virtual learning and homeschooling options to the campground. Veteran roadschoolers recommend supplementing the traditional curriculum with authentic educational opportunities found in national parks and historic sites. Roadschooling also offers flexibility, allowing families to individualize the learning experience in ways that work for both children and parents. Since connectivity is key, campground selection becomes even more important.

Don’t Take Your RV on These Dangerous Roadways
When roadways resemble roller coasters, it’s best to avoid them in your RV. Some of the most notorious highways in the U.S. have slender lanes, twisting switchbacks, extreme grades, and eye-popping drop-offs that might leave RVers imagining their rig careening into a canyon. Wandering wildlife, wicked winds, and tiny tunnels only add to the terror. Colorado’s Million Dollar Highway is one example. Though it’s considered one of the nation’s most scenic drives, the mountain passes and severe weather make it a no-go for RVers. Similarly, the beautiful Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is not to be missed, unless you are driving an RV. Check out this list of highways to avoid before your next road trip.

Make Family Memories in the Coleman Light 2755BH
Dutchmen puts its own spin on a classic floor plan with the Coleman Light 2755BH, which offers a familiar layout enhanced by upgraded features. Families can gather around the U-shaped dinette to play board games on rainy days, while the nearby couch is a cozy place to cuddle on lazy mornings. On chilly nights, families can bring the warmth of the campfire inside, thanks to the electric fireplace. The corner double-over-double bunks are roomy enough for up to four kids. At the end of a busy day, parents can retreat to the private front bedroom, complete with a separate exterior entrance. An outside kitchen and large awning extend the living space outdoors.

Enjoy Summer’s Last Splash with a Camping Sangria
Though kids are heading back to school around the nation and fall temperatures are starting to tiptoe in, summer has not officially ended. For those heading out for their final RV trips of the season, this camping sangria recipe offers a refreshing burst of fruit flavors. Start with a quart-sized mason jar. Add any mixture of your favorite summertime fruits, such as pineapple, strawberries, and grapes. Cover with vodka and white wine, and let chill. The tightly-sealed jars transport easily to the campground. Add a peppy zip by topping off the mixture with a carbonated beverage before sipping at your scenic campsite.
