About Rob & Darlene

Hi! We are Rob & Darlene

We got married on September 9, 2009 and had a dream to RV our way across the US and Canada and get away from the snow and freezing temperatures in Edmonton for one winter.  December 15, 2009 we set out on our dream journey, this blog is a record of our travels, experiences, lessons, and people met along the way.

As the title of this blog suggests we are among the youngest of snowbirds, and this is our inaugural RV trip, so we are also RV virgins for the most part.  Much of our learning is trial and error.

Rob is an internet marketer and blogger and Darlene is a photographer.  Together we will use our skills to document, entertain, and hopefully inspire those who read it.

Our trip will take us straight south of Alberta, through Nevada to Arizona where we plan our first month stay with day trips. Then on through to Texas for another month before a short one week stop in New Orleans.  Moving east towards Florida and then up to Savannah Georgia for another 2 week stop.

We have a convention in Canada for May, so after spending as much time in the motorhome in the southern United States, it’ll be a quick trip up the east coast stopping for historic sights along the way before spending a week in Canada’s maritime provinces.

Then home to Alberta via the northern United States after some wine tasting in New York.

We highly encourage you to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you’ll get updates about our trip and any wisdom we care to share, as soon as we publish.

Welcome to our RV Travel and adventure blog, we hope you enjoy our trip log about traveling through the US by motorhome.

  7. OMG you missed Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Montezumas Castle, and sooo much more in Arizona. You HAVE to come back and talk it a bit slower so you can see much more. 🙂

  8. @GT, we were in Arizona the Oct prior to our RV trip. Went to Sedona for 2 days, saw Montezuma’s Castle and Prescott. During our RV trip, we DID get to the Grand Canyon, Winslow, the meteor crater and Williams. Loved Arizona. (we were going to buy a house in Phoenix at one point, but changed our mind… might be off to Peru now).

    Thanks for your comment. Search our site for the grand canyon / williams / Winslow posts

    Please let me know if you accept paid guest posts on your site, RV Travel Blog. I work with freelance writers to create posts on sites like yours that link to a clients page within the context of the post. These are never reviews or advertisements for the link, just informational posts that are tailored to fit the content and audience of the site they are written for.

    Is that something you are interested in discussing? If you are, what are your guidelines for this type of agreement?
