Places and Playtypie YouTube Instagram Pinterest Twitter facebook So, here we are enjoying the full-time RV lifestyle in a 29' Winnebago Outlook motor home. How did we come to live in a camper? Two sensible people who loved their life in New York City. Now we travel from campground to RV park to boondocking at stadium tailgating parties or in the desert with joyful abandon. We call our [mobile] home "Maybe". We are slowly visiting places around the United States. On our continental USA-RV travels, complete with our dog, we follow the coast of this country, visit unique places, eat good food, and stay as green as possible with our four panel solar power array and tell you about it in this travel blog.

Picture of the almost everyday

Last week in Pittsburg we were lucky enough to visit the National Aviary. It’s a wonderful place to photograph, draw and get quite personal with birds. In fact, you need to watch your step and shoulders as they are flying and scurrying around you.

There are times when we do enjoy going off the grid, but mostly as we travel around the country we are very well connected, at least in the techno sense... read more

Heinz Field Stadium

#19 of 31: Paul Brown Stadium
Cincinnati, Ohio

If you’re feeling a little down, a bit discouraged with mankind, may I suggest that you drop by The Cincinnati Bengals Tailgating Party behind the Longworth Building, under the highway and train tracks and see a family party of biblical proportions. All kinds of people having fun together... affirming that there is hope for the planet. read more 

Heinz Field Stadium

#18 of 31 Stadiums: Heinz Field Stadium, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
We go for love of the game. Football, in spite of all the problems surrounding it, is still an absolutely marvelous and exciting game - beautiful to watch in every way. There is nothing more fun then partying with and talking to the fans before a game. Sunday, with the Steelers fans, for only the second time in our travels, we stopped interviewing and taking pictures and sat down and tailgated with our neighbors. read more

Summer of the Pig
Until I ate pork in Asheville, North Carolina I had forgotten just how delicious it can be. Dainty little vacuum packed tenderloins and carefully trimmed chops are not REAL pork!

Building our Ark Part 4: Electricity on the Go - Charging our Batteries

In Maybe we really do have, "Better Living Through Electricity." We enjoy house power even when we are boondocking. If ever you are considering traveling in a motorhome, having great electrical systems is a must.

Calli make set-ups and playing out elaborate stories with her Breyer horses

I’m With the Band Eventer
It’s dusk, the fireflies are blinking and I’m sitting outside the camper watching a little girl across the way prancing her acrylic horse on a picnic table. Softly, I can hear her singing, "Do you wanna build a snowman..." It seems so long ago that I watched little Calli make set-ups and playing out elaborate stories with her Breyer horses. (And we thought THAT was expensive!) read more
