Okanagan: Posh to Offbeat Ways to Wine Tour

Who doesn’t love great wine, delicious cuisine and stunning scenery? Often, visitors to British Columbia are drawn to the Rockies, Whistler or Vancouver (to name a few!) and aren’t aware of, or just don’t make it out to, BC’s interior wine region. Okanagan Valley wineries have won major international awards and are set against sun, sparkling lakes and sandy beaches. If you’re a wine lover and have yet to visit the Okanagan, get it on your bucket list! About 4 scenic hours from Vancouver by car, or a 50 minute flight, the Okanagan is great to visit year round....

RV Solar 101 – Is Solar For You?

If you’ve never used solar power for your RV or if you just know nothing about it, you’re definitely not alone. Most of the RVing we personally do involves full electric and water hook-ups and for the most part I’m happy with that. If we’re without hook-ups, we have a generator. But solar has an environmental allure…plus the silence! Generators are teeth-rattlingly loud and can be annoying to anyone relaxing close by. Solar is a techy, complicated subject for me – there are a lot of parts, terms, situations, options and preferences involved. In this post, I’m going to...

Stay and Play at Mabel Lake Resort and Airpark

If you’re planning on spending some time in the North Okanagan region this summer, definitely consider Mabel Lake Resort and Airpark. When we lived in Kelowna, we spent a whole summer at Mabel Lake and easily could have spent the following summer here as well, if we hadn’t moved! An easy 2 hour drive from Kelowna, head east off 97A at Enderby for 35 km along scenic, bucolic road that follows the Shuswap River. The resort is a mix of full-service RV camping sites (both seasonal and overnight), rental houses & cabins, luxury condos, vacation homes and…an airstrip! Mabel Lake...

Get Going with SylvanSport GO!

As a designer, I love and appreciate great design. Well thought-out design that blends efficiency, quality and beauty…ahh! The North Carolina-made GO caught my eye at the Calgary RV Show a few weeks ago. At first, I thought it was just a really cool tent trailer but after checking it out, it’s really much more. The feature I like most about the GO is that it is a utility trailer and tent trailer, all in one! But wait, that’s not all.  At only 840 lbs, GO is the smallest, most fuel-efficient towable out there. Sleeping up to 4, GO...
