Tips for the perfect camping trip!

As Wayward Wanderers, we love camping! Camping in Maine is one of our favorite things to do. There’s something pretty spectacular about waking up next to the ocean. And since our daughter sometimes comes with us, we know that camping with a family requires additional planning. While researching camping info, we found this great interactive camping guide.

We want your family to be safe and well-prepared, so before you head out to camp, make sure you’re ready with these great common sense and expert tips!

Pitching Your Tent

Common Sense: Never set up a tent on rocky, sloping, or uneven ground.

Expert Tip:  Test the wind and orient the doors/vents so that the prevailing wind blows through them – this will change a stuffy tent into an airy outdoor paradise.

Fire Safety

Common Sense: Start a fire in an established stone ring and drown the fire when you are done. Keep dousing it until the ground is cool to the touch.

Expert Tip: Keep your eyes open. Look around your fire for low hanging branches, dry patches, and other flammable items. The Wind can blow leaves or trash in and out of the fire. Prevent a disaster by keeping all trash in a closed container.


Common Sense: Cast your line in a clean and clear area where there’s no chance of getting your hook caught on a branch (or a friend). Also, make sure you have the proper licenses for the area you’re in.

Expert Tip: Fish tend to feed where there is more greenery. Try finding places of lush vegetation for a better day of casting.

Things to Bring

Common Sense: Bring more dry socks than you think you might need. As our military personnel knows, taking care of your feet is critical to survival.

Expert Tip: Fires can be difficult to keep going – have some newspaper on hand to use as kindling.

Having a great time camping can come down to simple preparedness. A little forethought and planning using solid tips from experienced campers will help you set out on the path less traveled with more confidence. This list barely scrapes the surface.

Going From Miami to Key West on a Motorcycle

Going From Miami to Key West on a Motorcycle by

Getting to the Southernmost point of the United States was one of the goals we had when we set out on our honeymoon in February. The best part of this journey was that we were going from Miami to Key West on a motorcycle. The overseas highway isn’t like anything either of us has experienced. It’s a long ride, an incredible experience and to be honest, one I’m not sure either of us would do again. I’m not meaning to burst your bubble if you are planning on going from Miami to Key West on a motorcycle. I think everyone should do it once. There’s nothing like the wind in your face, the sun beating down, the ocean on both sides of you and the roar of the motorcycle in your ears! I decided to create this guide for motorcyclists going to Key West the first time so they are prepared as much as possible. Keep Reading

Travel On a Budget- 2 Weeks Vacation for the Price of 1

We just had the most amazing vacation/honeymoon ever! We were able to take 2 weeks away to explore Florida and it was the best time! People were surprised that we were able to go since it had only been a month since we went to Las Vegas to get married. How can we afford that? Did you win the megabucks? The answer is we have tricks up our sleeves. We paid in two weeks what most would pay in just one so we were able to see and do a lot more. Here’s how we travel on a budget. Keep Reading

As many of our blog followers know, the Wayward Wanderers went to Vegas over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend to get married. One of our followers was kind enough to send us a wedding gift, which came in quite handy during the trip.

Atitlan Leather sent us a lovely small messenger bag and carryall. Their products are handmade by Mayans using traditional methods. The messenger bag is gorgeous and strong; unlike anything I’d be able to buy here. Keep Reading
