2 minutes reading time (438 words)

Recreational vehicles (RVs) and national parks often go hand in hand, providing a unique and adventurous way to explore the natural beauty and diverse landscapes of different regions. Here are some key points to consider when bringing an RV to national parks:

Campground Facilities:Many national parks offer RV-friendly campgrounds equipped with facilities such as electrical hookups, water, and sanitation stations. However, the availability of these amenities can vary, so it's advisable to check in advance and make reservations if possible.RV Size Restrictions:National parks may have restrictions on the size of RVs allowed in certain campgrounds or on specific roads. Be aware of any size limitations and plan accordingly.Reservations:Given the popularity of national parks, especially during peak seasons, it's recommended to make campground reservations in advance. Some parks have limited RV spaces, and reservations ensure you have a spot.Generator Policies:Understand the park's policies regarding generator use. Some parks have designated hours for generator operation to minimize noise and environmental impact.Dump Stations:National parks usually provide dump stations for RVs to dispose of wastewater. Be aware of the location of dump stations within the park.Park Shuttle Systems:Some national parks operate shuttle systems to reduce traffic congestion. Consider using park shuttles or public transportation when available to explore the park without the need to drive your RV.Park Regulations:Familiarize yourself with the specific regulations of each national park. Rules regarding pets, hiking, and recreational activities may vary.Road Conditions:Be aware of the road conditions within the park. Some roads may be narrow or winding, and certain areas may have restrictions on RV travel.Wildlife Awareness:National parks are home to diverse wildlife. Be cautious and follow guidelines to minimize human-wildlife interactions. Store food securely to avoid attracting animals to your RV.Seasonal Considerations:Some national parks have seasonal closures or restrictions. Research the best time to visit based on weather conditions and park accessibility.Leave No Trace Principles:Adhere to the principles of "Leave No Trace" to minimize your impact on the environment. Respect natural habitats, pack out all waste, and follow park guidelines for responsible camping.Accessibility:Check the accessibility of trails and attractions within the park. Some areas may not be suitable for RVs, and you may need to explore on foot, bike, or park-approved shuttles.

Remember that each national park has its own set of rules and regulations, so it's crucial to research and plan accordingly before bringing an RV. National parks offer a wonderful opportunity to experience the beauty of nature, and responsible RV travel ensures a positive experience for both visitors and the environment.

Going to Glacier

After settling into one of the well-appointed sites, adventurers will have plenty of choices for recreation. For an unforgettable day trip, head west to Glacier National Park, comprising approximately one million acres of surreal lakes and towering peaks. A drive along the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road leads motorists to unparalleled views of the surrounding peaks. The park is home to 762 lakes, many of which accommodate fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Hikers can soak in dramatic views by taking the Highline Trail, an 11.8-mile out-and-back hike that follows the Continental Divide.

Crazy??? A Gun that Shoots Arrows

Traditions Firearms sells the Crackshot XBR (Crossbow Rifle) that fires an arrow up to 385 feet per second with 94 ft-lbs of kinetic energy at 30 yards, making it very competitive with today’s modern crossbows.  The gun is a basic .22 caliber rifle with the barrel section specifically modified to launch 2216 Firebolt Arrows.

How it Works

An arrow would wobble in an open rifle barrel and the fletching would be destroyed by the compression.  The XBR solves this problem with a narrow tube that fits inside the 2016 arrow and the larger outer barrel allows for fletch clearance.  To load the arrow, the shaft fits over the inner tube and slides down the barrel.

A Bow with a Bang

Once the arrow fully encases the inner tube, the rifle is primed with a .27 caliber Powerload as shown above.  To fire, the shooter switches the safety to “off,” cocks the rifle by pulling back the hammer, and squeezes the trigger.  I examined the rifle at the Great American Outdoor Show so I could not fire it inside.

Is It a Bow?

At a price of $599, the Crackshot is comparable to mid-priced crossbows and delivers arrow performance in that range.  With a stock, forend, scope, and trigger it has many crossbow components, yet it uses a percussion launch system which sets it apart.  It’s marketed to “adults, youth, and anyone who may be disabled.”  Generally, “bows” don’t go “bang,” but I’ll let you decide.  www.traditionsfirearms.com

Shore Bet for Big Whitetail Bucks

“Maryland’s Eastern Shore whitetail hunts are a bargain,” I said to my poker buddy as he complained about the high cost of Mid-Western deer hunts.  “Instead of $3,000 and up, a quality hunt with a good chance for a P&Y buck is half that price.”  I used to write for Mid-Atlantic Game and Fish Magazine, where my job was to write about the big deer taken in Maryland.  Continually, those “best-of-the-year-deer came from the Eastern Shore.

Maryland is Super Hunter Friendly

A Whitetail deer tag in the Mid-West can cost $300-$500 and one of the areas I hunt in South Dakota, tags go for $1,000.  Those are just tags, plus you must buy a general hunting license, conservation stamp, archery, tag, etc.  The price of a Maryland Nonresident Hunting License is $160.00. For those aged 65 and above, Maryland offers a Nonresident Senior Hunting License at a cost of $65.00. This is available for purchase in the year a nonresident hunter turns 65. For younger enthusiasts under 16, a Nonresident Junior Hunting License is available at $80.00.  This is a full year’s license and includes up to four bucks, 10 does, two wild turkeys and small game. Such a deal!

Why Shore Bucks are Big.

Maryland’s Eastern Shore is blessed with rich, fertile soil that grows excellent crops that are bordered by dense pine growth, swamps, and an impenetrable plant called phragmites.  This weed grows prolifically on the Shore, is 8-10 feet tall and as thick as dog hair.  Additionally, this region is known for waterfowl hunting and many farms are leased specifically for waterfowl.  As a result, these landowners don’t welcome deer hunters because they compete for lucrative leases, making them sanctuaries for excellent age structure.

Pick Your Season

Jeff Harrison took this big Maryland buck on September 15th, the usual opening day.  Recently, Maryland has moved their season to the first week of September giving you the chance for a velvet buck.  Lush croplands are visited regularly in early season, but hunters must prepare for mosquitoes and warm weather.  November 15th is the typical rut peak, and the two weeks prior are dynamite for rut-style hunting.  Maryland’s archery season closes on January 31, giving archers great late-season opportunities.  Crossbows, recurves, and compounds are legal in all regular archery seasons.

What’s it Like

I hunted with George Hopkins a few years ago and visit each February at the Great American Outdoor Show to catch up.  He and his son operate in Kent and Queen Anne’s Counties, known for big deer, and spread their clients over a series of farms in a huge area.  They plant corn, soybeans, clover and sunflowers to entice deer and baiting is allowed.  They offer archery, muzzleloading, and shotgun hunt from 3-6 days, ranging from three to six days costing $1200 to $2,000.  The Eastern Shore is known for hospitality and it’s easy to combine a hunting trip/family vacation in the area.  Known as “The Land of Pleasant Living,” great restaurants abound.  A web search will turn up numerous outfitters on the Shore or to contact Hopkins Deer Hunting, click here.  Good Luck!

Working from Your RV

2 minutes reading time (469 words)

Working from your RV can offer flexibility and the opportunity to combine work with travel. However, it comes with its own set of challenges. Here are some tips for working effectively from your RV:

Internet Connectivity:Ensure a reliable internet connection. Invest in a quality mobile hotspot, satellite internet, or use campground Wi-Fi when available. Check coverage maps for your destinations.Create a Dedicated Workspace:Designate a specific area in your RV for work. This could be a fold-down desk, a portable table, or even a section of the dining area. Keep your work area organized.Noise Management:RVs can be noisy, especially if parked in crowded campgrounds. Use noise-canceling headphones to block out distractions, and consider choosing quieter campsites.Power Supply:Make sure you have sufficient power for your devices. RVs often have limited outlets, so consider using power strips and have backup power sources such as a generator or solar panels.Comfortable Seating:Invest in a comfortable chair with proper support. Since you might be spending extended hours working, having an ergonomic setup is crucial for your well-being.Time Management:Set a schedule to balance work and leisure. It's easy to get distracted by the scenic surroundings, so having a structured routine will help you stay productive.Use Cloud Services:Embrace cloud-based tools and services for file storage, collaboration, and communication. This allows you to access your work from any location and device.Plan for Meetings:If your work involves virtual meetings, plan ahead for the best times to join calls, considering time zone differences and potential connectivity issues.Backup Solutions:Have a backup plan for data and important documents. Consider using cloud storage and external hard drives to prevent data loss.Mobile Office Supplies:Keep essential office supplies such as notepads, pens, and charging cables in your RV. Consider a small printer if needed.Weather Considerations:Be mindful of weather conditions. Extreme temperatures can impact your devices and comfort. Plan accordingly and have adequate heating or cooling solutions.Community and Networking:Connect with other RVers and remote workers. Online communities and social media groups can provide support, advice, and networking opportunities.Check Local Regulations:Some campgrounds may have restrictions on running generators during certain hours. Be aware of local rules and regulations regarding noise and other factors that could affect your work setup.Work-Life Balance:Maintain a healthy work-life balance. Take breaks, explore your surroundings, and enjoy the benefits of RV living.Emergency Preparedness:Have a plan for emergencies, such as power outages, equipment failures, or unexpected changes in travel plans.

Remember, working from your RV can be a unique and rewarding experience, allowing you to enjoy the freedom of the road while maintaining your professional commitments. Adjustments may be needed, but with proper planning and organization, you can create a productive and enjoyable mobile workspace.

Tim Well and an “Impossible” Desert Ram

“I got lucky, said Tim Wells, demonstrating that noting is out of reach.  “My first desert bighorn ram thousands of feet above the Sea of Cortez.  It’s been a test.  I was having a grueling week trying to close the distance on what seemed an impossibility.  Suddenly, things turned in my favor.  Beneath a baking son I glassed a mature ram on a distant ridge where it guarded a small group of ewes.

Wells and Grim Reaper “Got This.”

Sneaking on the big ram, Wells and a camera operator climbed to an elevated point within range of the sheep where “The Slock Master” sent a Grim Reaper through the magnificent beast.  “I’m thankful for such and experience and hope you enjoy the video soon to come.  And yes, there will be a Go Fund Me page to help pay for the trip.”

 

A Grim Reaper Fan

I met Tim Wells at the 2024 ATA Show in St. Louis, and he was gracious enough to share a photograph.  If you have not seen Wells in action, his shooting skills are magical, as in ducks and geese on the wing.  He shoots Grim Reaper Broadheads exclusively and is equally successful with a spear and blowgun.  Tim Wells has a host of videos on YouTube, often under “Relentless Pursuit.”  Despite today’s advanced hunting technologies, Wells hunts with an Oneida Eagle recurve.  Follow us for more Tim Wells adventures and videos.

KUIU Flyway Insulated Vest Review by Gunner Hall

I am demanding when it comes to waterfowl gear. It must be able to hold up in extremely harsh conditions. Waterfowl hunting clothing is no different. It needs to be designed to keep you warm and dry. I recently had the chance to try out Kuiu’s new Flyway Insulated Vest from their Waterfowl collection. I decided to wear the Kuiu flyway vest while using a kayak to paddle into shallow waters to chase down birds.

This vest is rated for cold to frigid temperatures. I waited until the temperatures could put this vest to the test. The morning I decided to go, the temperatures were in the high teens to low 20s °F. The Fiberball® Insulation did precisely what it advertised it would do. It kept my core body temp warm and comfortable. I used this vest as my outer layer. I combined it with a base layer undershirt and a heavy hooded sweatshirt as the middle layer. I was worried that this might not be enough clothing to keep me warm. I used the adjustable hem cinch, which helped keep the vest close to my body and seemed to help trap the warm air near my chest.

The zippered chest pockets are the perfect size for keeping items such as keys, wallet, and a phone dry and secure. The YKK® zippers were easy to use even while wearing gloves in frigid temperatures. The upper hand pockets have a magnetic closure and are lined with Sherpa fleece. They kept my hands warm while waiting for birds to fly into range. The lower hand pockets are lined with Sherpa fleece and have a magnetic closure. I found these lower pockets perfect for holding extra shells.

One feature I did not think about until I got on the water was that this vest cuts the wind perfectly. The wind was blowing hard enough to push me around in my kayak, but it did not penetrate the vest.

The underarm gusseted pattern on the Kuiu flyway vest was large enough to allow unrestricted movement while paddling my kayak and when I was shooting. It felt like the vest was moving with me as I swung through shots and even when I used my paddle as a push pole while navigating the muck and mud of the shallow water I was hunting in.

Each pouch contains two disposable hand warmers that, when opened, react to air to create safe, long-lasting heat that lasts all day, ensuring the cold never gets in the way of getting the job done. Their dual-purpose Rechargeable Hand Warmers not only keep hands warm but can be used to recharge USB-powered devices. Available in two different sizes, each hand warmer provides comfortable, double-sided heat and will last up to 10 hours on a single charge.
