Plan Like a Park Ranger for Your Summer Travels
As parks brace for a summer surge in visitors, the National Park Service is encouraging you to plan like a park ranger to ensure a smooth and safe journey. First, be aware that some parks are requiring reservations this year. Consider looking beyond the most popular parks to avoid overcrowding. Next, make a plan and a backup plan before your visit. The new NPS app and onsite rangers can help. Once you arrive, be sure to follow safety guidelines and rules for pets, respect the wildlife, and help care for the natural landscape by leaving no trace. Finally, be patient with fellow visitors and park staff.

Is a Classic Camper the Right Rig for You?
If you aren’t careful, that $900 vintage camper deal can cost you thousands of dollars and tons of time in the long run. How can you tell if a rig is road-ready? First, do a thorough inspection, and keep in mind that you won’t be able to spot many hidden problems. Dry rot and water damage may be lurking below beautiful renovations. Despite these issues, a vintage camper can be a good investment, as some rise in value. Plus, the “coolness quotient” is a bonus you get from a rig that turns heads at the campground.
