  1. Greybull, WY KOA

    As we were charting our course for the western loop (west of Colorado) we came across a little KOA in the middle of nowhere in the little town of Greybull, Wyoming. It was at a convenient location for our route and are currently staying here for a couple of weeks. Yes, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere but have come to find out it's a jewel of a park. Great concrete padded sites, FHU, patio, swing, your own propane grill and the internet is ~40 Mbps download/5Mbps upload. All services work great ...
  2. Hydraulic solutioning

    We're in a 5er with 6 point hydraulic jacks and three hydraulic slides (one electric slide) and we encountered a puzzling situation where our jacks would always retract when we pulled in the hydraulic slides, sometimes a little, mostly fully retract. Then the mid and back jacks stopped moving at all unless manually manipulated. Hydraulic fluid was at the appropriate level. Then the 5er would not really auto-level at all. All voltages good and no shorts detected. Many hours on customer support calls ...

  3. Two Parks in Kentucky: Georgetown and Louisville South KOA

    I'm going to try to capture notes for two parks in Kentucky in one post...mostly coz I'm lazy.

    Summary: This is mostly a gravel parking lot with hook-ups. There are some pretty decent spots if you are a travel-trailer but even then it get's packed on weekends and can be challenging to navigate with big rig.
    Pros:
    - The young people that checked us in (ages 14-16 I'm guessing) were quite friendly and helpful (but ...

  4. Awesome remote park with great wifi and ultimate hosts: Lynchburg/Blue Ridge KOA

    Beautiful park in the woods, but only 20 mins to Food Lion, Walmart, Advanced Auto. Hosts and staff are amazing, very friendly and the most engaged we’ve ever seen and service is top-notch - they deliver packages, mail, wood, propane and even RV materials when I changed out my hot water anode! They installed more Wifi antennas around the park and I was able to get 27Mbps download and 4 Mbps fairly consistently – which is top speed for any park thus far across the country. There are plenty of activities ...

  5. VA Beach HoLiday Travel Park

    Quick Review of Holiday Trav-L-Park in Virginia Beach. I'll post the official review on Campgroundreviews.com but capturing a few key data points here:

    Pros:
    - Big park, wait that's also a con, but there are so many sites to select from here.
    - Our site was nice, with a patio, fire pit and almost enough room for our Tow Vehicle
    - Awesome bike riding park, perhaps our favorite, you can literally get lost in the park plus there's plenty of external awesome bike ...
