April 13, 2017 |

I still have my iPad 2 (Model: A1396) and have had such headaches with iTunes and Image Capture not recognizing that I do indeed have GBs worth of photos and videos on my iPad.

As you’re on the trail with other experienced hikers you notice how hydrated they stay and they don’t seem to be stopping to fiddle with their backpack to grab those water bottles. Read More

App Review: Boom 2 – Mac Volume Booster

February 3, 2015 |

In efforts of packing smart and traveling light with the Carry-On Only Movement (i.e. Western Caribbean and South Africa), I opted to leave my JBL Flip 2 wireless, portable speakers at home.

What Helps Clean our RV? Answer: Dyson DC35

November 8, 2013 | 1

I purchased the Dyson Digital Slim™ DC35 back in Hawaii knowing it’d be a practical purchase for RVing. When I purchased it at Costco, they had it on sale with the added bonus of extra accessories for all types of cleaning jobs. Although a full charge lasts about 6-15 minutes, how long does one need for a 29-foot motorhome? Read More
