The Oxygenics Fury RV shower head replaced our stock shower head for a much better shower!

This has to be our easiest and fastest mod ever, but it is also one of my favorites!!!  We had a regular Oxygenics shower head in our last rv, and while we had installed it, it had been years ago, and we had since forgotten how awful stock rv shower heads tend to be!  In […]

Family Friendly Clark County Shooting Complex, Las Vegas, NV…

This year, we spent some time in Nevada.   Our oldest son came to travel with us for a few weeks, and we met him in Las Vegas.  Las Vegas isn’t exactly the most family friendly town – in fact, it’s one of our least favorite places to visit!  But, there are a few family-friendly […]

RV Mod – Garbage cupboard to pantry…

I LOVE an rv mod!!!  Oftentimes, that means that I love to have Vaughn and the boys remodel the rv for me. 😉   But, I really stink at taking before pics, because I am a jump in and start ripping it apart the minute I think of it kind of person!  So, I don’t […]

EOs on the Road – Essential Oil recipe for dry skin cream…
