Created by EscapeRvist - February 15th 2021

We run a tight ship, but we are taking this show on the road. Now we have to learn how to run a tight trip! We are a family of 4. We are hitting the road as RV full-timers with our kids. Homeschool, travel, adventure, and fun! We plan to see friends and family along our journey where we can. We hope to inspire others! Follow up on Facebook @escapervist

This is where our journey begins. We didn't have a lot of luck staying at Providence Canyon which is our main destination for this stop. Looking in the area I found Lakepoint Resort which offered several trails and lakes for fishing. I figured this was better than "just a campground" to keep the kids occupied for the week exploring and fishing.

We are planning to spend the day exploring the park. After reading about the park I do not think we need more than a day. We plan to wake up early, pack up the RV, and hit the park which is about ~30 minutes away.

This place was such a surprise! We didn't expect too much when going, but thought we would check it out since we had a few hours to burn. This place is gorgeous! Lots of rocks, lots of water, lots of color! Its a very quiet place. Take in a book, enjoy a walk, sit in peace and listen to the water rushing by. Or be like us and take a dip in the freezing water!

There were lots of options in Huntsville. The main attraction is the US Space & Rocket Center. In looking for somewhere to stay I found this park. Plenty of hiking (with waterfalls) looked like a fun week of activities for the kids. I'm sure we will have a blast exploring throughout the week before setting off to our next destination.

Our kids loved Kennedy Space Center and we have more space (and UFO's) planned later in our trip, but we didn't want to miss seeing the US Space and Rocket Center while we were nearby.

We love the HGTV show "Home Town", but that is not why we are stopping in. I have a cousin who lives here and we plan to stop to see them (hopefully for dinner). We will certainly try to see some of the city while we are here, but we are mainly passing through.

Another city, another friend to see. This time we are stopping in to see a friend. We will be hanging out here for a week, but bouncing around Mandeville and New Orleans.

Fairview Riverside State Park was a chore coming in and out for dinner or late night excurions. They have a manual gate with an old combo lock. The site was pretty wet and not accomodating for a rig our size. We decided to extend our stay but they would not allow for more than 7 days at a time.
