"Route 66 RV Adventure: Exploring the Mother Road"

Route 66

Route 66 is also know as "the mother road." It's history has helped shape that of America. Commissioned in 1926, it was the first highway to link Chicago and Los Angeles. Route 66 became America's main street. No longer necessary for cross-country travel, it has been replaced by interstates with no stoplights and no special places of interest, just a way to get from point A to point B in a hurry.

But as I've always reminded travelers, you don't learn anything on an interstate. Route 66 is special, it crosses the rivers, plains, mountains and deserts of eight states. Come along for the over 2,000 mile ride as we explore it's drive-inns, gas stations, museums, kitschy roadside attractions and most importantly, it's people. Americana at it's finest! Today, visitors come from all over the globe to travel what some call the most magical road in the world. What are you waiting for!

Alaska's Inside Passage

Alaska's Inside Passage

The adventure begins on beautiful Vancouver Island in British Columbia with a visit to Telegraph Cove, possibly the best place on Earth to view Orca (killer whales). We continue north to Ketchikan, Alaska's first city on the Inside Passage. Here we explore the spectacular Misty Fjords National Monument by kayak and float plane. We also learn about the art of totem pole carving and watch as they are created. A short side trip by ferry takes us to Prince Of Wales Island, which has more than 2,000 miles of logging roads for exploration. The island is also known for its luxury fishing lodges.

Wrangell calls itself "Alaska's Hidden Jewel" and is paradise for those seeking outdoor adventure! Many say that if you're looking for the real Alaska, you'll find it here. The Anan Bear Observatory is considered to be one of the best in the state and the only place where black and brown bears feed together. We take an exciting jet boat tour up the Stikine River - the last great un-dammed river on the continent - and visit Telegraph Creek as well as the Grand Canyon of the Stikine.

The ferry becomes part of the adventure as we head north through the Wrangell Narrows - the single most difficult navigational stretch on the Passage. Petersburg is Alaska's "Little Norway" and Southeast's busiest processing port, home to the area's largest fishing fleet. Sitka was once the Russian capital of Alaska and is one of the most beautiful spots on our route. We explore the town's history and native culture. The Alaska Raptor Center offers a close-up at eagles. A wildlife cruise to St. Lazaria Island lets us observe whales, puffins, sea lions and otters. A snorkeling tour reveals Alaska's underwater world.

Juneau is the state capital. The biggest attraction is Mendenhall Glacier, which we explore with an exciting helicopter tour and glacier trek. Some of the best humpback whale watching is within a short boat ride of town. Incredible glacier calving and towering cliffs can be seen at nearby Tracy Arm. Side trips take us to beautiful Glacier Bay and the quirky little town of Pelican.

Our adventure ends with a tour of historic Skagway and more wilderness adventures in Haines, including a river tour, an air boat ride and panning for gold.

Natural Wonders of the SE Coast

Natural Wonders of the SE Coast

When you think of the East Coast you usually think of big cities, but there are many natural areas that have been set aside as well. Our adventure begins in Virginia Beach as we follow the coast south through the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is where the Wright Brothers made their first flight and where we try our hand at hang-gliding, take a 4-wheel adventure along the beach to find Wild Mustangs, and explore the many lighthouses the dangerous coastlines famous for. A scenic ferry ride takes us and our RV back to the mainland where we head to South Carolina and Myrtle Beach. Just outside of Charleston we take a kayak trip to an island with a pelican rookery. At Hilton Head we find wild dolphins, painted buntings, and take a trip on a shrimp boat to learn how one of our favorite foods is harvested.

One-third of all the saltwater marshes along the East Coast are located in Georgia. An eco-tour explains how important the marsh is to the creatures that inhabit it, like oysters, crabs, wading birds, and manatees. On Sapalo Island we learn its history of plantations and slaves. A hike around Cumberland Island reveals its miles of beautiful beaches. We follow famous highway A1A south along the Florida coast stopping at historic St. Augustine to see the Fountain of Youth. The Kennedy Space Center is world famous but did you know that the surrounding Merritt Wildlife Refuge is a natural hot spot bursting with wildlife? Nearby we observe the age old ritual of the giant loggerhead turtle coming back to the beach to lay its eggs.

The Everglades is the place to visit for natural wonders. The national park is one of the most unusual in the country. Alligators and crocodiles are king here along with hundreds of other species of wildlife. The drive over the bridges of the Florida Keys is a spectacular display of colorful water and sand. Along the way we scuba dive with sharks, catch giant tarpon, film the endangered Key Deer, kayak through mangroves, and take an ultra-light flight.

Baja RV Adventure

Baja RV Adventure

Come along on the adventure of a lifetime! In 1975, future filmmaker John Holod traveled the 1,060 mile Transpeninsular Baja Highway from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas by motorcycle. He now returns in the comfort of his RV to make a video about this incredible desert paradise.

The adventure begins at the busiest border crossing in the world. We take a tour with the US Border Patrol to see what is being done to secure this hot spot. Today's Tijuana is much different from the rundown place many of us remember. Ensenada is famous for its fish market, the blowhole, Estro Beach and Hussong's Cantina - "the bar that built a town". A side trip takes us to San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez, a beach playground for RV'ers. Sierra National Park, looking much like Northern California, is home to the Pico Diablo, the highest mountain in all of Baja. Our route south takes us to San Quintin and El Rosario, the home of Mama Espinosa's famous restaurant where we talk to Mama herself. Bahia de Los Angeles, one of the most beautiful places on the peninsula, is home to a wide variety of wildlife and provides access to the Midriff Islands and life forms found nowhere else on Earth.

Guerrero Negro is famous for salt production and the world's friendliest grey whales...who get close enough to pet! We also visit a preserve protecting the endangered Peninsula Pronghorn, which have a population of less than two hundred. In San Ignacio we tour the mission and enjoy a parade honoring its patron saint. Santa Rosalia's history features mining and French colonial style architecture. Mulege - the oasis in the desert - offers palm trees, dorado fishing, birding and a hike to nearby cave paintings. Camping on the beach a few feet from the sea makes many consider Bahia Conception the ultimate Baja destination. Loreto is one of the most pleasant towns in Baja featuring a mission museum and a 4 wheel drive side trip to San Javier and its well preserved church. A visit to San Carlos allows us to explore Magdalena Bay with its mangroves and estuaries. La Paz is noted for an attractive waterfront walkway and some of the best scuba diving on the peninsula. The adventure ends in the popular tourist resort of Cabo San Lucas. This is an adventure-packed 75 minute experience!
