Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show

 

Our 27th day of the trip is our departure from Antelope Island. I also come to realize that without a generator for our camper, the solar would be kind of worthless - so I talk about the difference between PWM and MPPT charge controllers, and why I think I will be upgrading mine. And guess what, the day wouldn't have been complete if something else was not malfunctioning on the Geo Pro, so we got that also. :-/
But before we leave the island, we wanted to see a few more things - like the actual lake for a change. So, in this 1st part of day 27, we finally make it to the beach. :-)

Ep. #621 Our 12 Week Adventure | Day 27: Part 1 - The Great Salt Lake

So on day 34, I discover that, the night previous when I had to make a U-turn, I ended up damaging two of the campers stabilizing jacks. I also noticed the spare tire underneath the camper is no longer sitting flush with the frame, but I don't see any apparent damage that is causing it. Probably just another thing breaking on the camper, all by itself. Towing a Rockwood Geo Pro with a Honda
Our 33rd day was spent traveling to Olympia, WA, and along the way we went ahead and stopped at the Tacoma RV Center - doing some wishful RV window shopping. We have been so disappointed and frustrated with the Rockwood Geo Pro. I have stumbled across so many issues with the Geo Pro 19FBS... I am very regretful that I went with this camper. So, we looked at a Winnebago. It weighs only 500lbs
So part 2 of our 32nd day focuses on the time we spent on Bainbridge Island. We went and hiked in the beautiful Grand Forest - it was a very whimsical place. Then we ate dinner Isla Bonita, which we actually thought was really good. We explored the city a bit, but it was late and so we didn't get to enjoy it as much, so we definitely recommend checking it out during the day. Regardless, it was a
For out 32nd say, we wanted to take the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge. Before we did that, though, we headed back to Pike Place Market and got some more delicious cheese from Beecher's Handmade Cheese. Robin and I also had some fun with a giant Connect 4. ;-) Then, as we wait to board our vehicle on the Seattle–Bainbridge Ferry, I share some Downtown Seattle parking tips that we've discovered
We've been away from home for a full month now, and on the 31st day of our trip, we take a leisurely adventure exploring the Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle, Washington. We enjoy looking at all the interesting stores, and checking out the variety of cuisine available at the Farmer's Market. And of course we stop by the Market Theater Gum Wall - which I don't get the appeal at all. Some of
On the 30th day of our adventure, we visit the renowned Space Needle in Seattle, Washington. Before our scheduled tour of the Space Needle, we check out the Alweg Monorail and explore downtown Seattle. We discover plenty of interesting finds along the way. The Space Needle was a little anxiety provoking for me, but otherwise it was a spectacular experience. :-) Towing a Rockwood Geo Pro with a
Well it's official: Rockwood engineers are a bunch of idiots. Why would they put something with a breaker behind a panel that is not really meant to be accessible? I'm so done with this camper. But unfortunately, I'm stuck with it. I can only begin to imagine what other feats of marvelous engineering on this camper will bite me in the butt down the road. This is how I spend day 29 of our enjoyable
On our 28th day of being on the road, we just pass through Idaho due to weather. We need to get to Seattle sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, I discover that the camper steps have started to pull up from the wafer board floor, so we have to stop and fix that. And as a note: there really is no usable warranty on these campers unless you take it back to the dealer you bought it from. I express
For the second part of our 27th day, - our last day at Antelope Island, - we explore the fascinating Fielding Garr Ranch. Afterwards we get on the road, and drive 6 hours to Boise, Idaho. We ended up going a little further pass Boise to stay at a Walmart. I tried a couple truck stops in Boise, but they were jam packed with semis, and somehow it did not feel like the right place for a travel

The 26th day of our adventure, we took a drive around the beautiful Antelope Island. Lots of buffalo, lots of bugs. I captured some really gorgeous footage. On another good note: the internet is working, the generator is working, RotopaX tank is working. Nothing more has broke. :-) Later that evening for dinner we go into the city and eat at Crown Burgers. I enjoyed it, but Robin was on the
To start our 25th day, after spending the night in a Cracker Barrel parking lot, we eat lunch at the Cajun seafood restaurant and bar, Hook & Reel. It was good food, but it *really* only had seafood. And it wasn't Robin's cup of tea, so she ate at her favorite El Pollo Loco, of course. :-) Then we made it to the beautiful Antelope Island State Park. We got to enjoy a gorgeous sunset hike across
Very early morning of day 24, we arrive in Salt Lake City. For our first stay at a flying J Truck Stop. I had a chance to test the WiFi Ranger off the Flying J wifi - only 50 ft away - once again, an epic fail. However, I found Verizon LTE seems to work very well in Salt Lake City, so at least there was that. We of course visit Robin's beloved fast food chain El Pollo Loco. Afterwards, we go
On the 23rd day of our trip, it's finally time to say goodbye to my family. With all the repairs finished, and now almost a week longer then expected in Delta because of it, we have to skip going north toward Yellowstone, as very bad weather had already set in there. We start the day with our traditional goodbye breakfast at Starvin Arvin's, and then before heading out we go back to my parent's
We used our 22nd day to take our typical drive up the beautiful Grand Mesa. Many fond memories I have of riding my bike to the very top of the Mesa from Delta, CO. I always enjoy visiting it every time we're in Western Colorado. And it was absolutely breathtaking this year, being there during fall, when all the colors are changing. Afterwards, we play Uno with GIANT cards (so that Robin can see
Since Robin has never been, we decided to spend our 21st day at the Colorado National Monument with my parents. It's an absolutely gorgeous area near Grand Junction, CO. And it's always a sight to behold. After spending the day there, we ate at Texas Roadhouse, and then headed back to Delta. I also discuss some of the organizing we've done, as well as some little upgrades/repairs we've completed
