So you’ve decided to trek out on a camping trip this summer (if you’ve yet to decide where, browse through campgrounds with reviews on MobileRVing.com or refer to ‘best of’ lists to uncover spots you may not have otherwise considered, like canyon country, the Black Hills of South Dakota, or Taughannock Falls State Park). While planning out your adventure in terms of geography is the fun part, you may eventually find out (in the event of an emergency) that not taking the time to plan for safety can ruin your fun pretty quickly.

Packing for a camping trip can be a tricky task. You don’t want to take more than you need or more than you can carry, but you also want to ensure that you have the essentials, especially when it comes to health and safety items. While ca....

The first Tuesday in August is a great time to be an RV owner. The date plays host to National Night Out, an annual event that's been strengthening police-community partnerships and fostering neighborhood camaraderie since 1984. National Night Out is a great opportunity to develop a sense of community, build better relationships with police officers and other public servants and further crime prevention. It's also the perfect time to head out in your RV and enjoy the great outdoors.

Unfortunately, camping trailers and RVs are often prime targets for thieves. If you plan to head out this August to take part in National Night Out - or if you're just planning a journey of your own - here's what you need to know to keep your RV and your possessions protected.

A very popular way to broaden your RVing experience is to take up fly fishing. The equipment is easy to stow, and the benefits are wonderful. Overall, fly fishing is more about the experience than the fish. One learns more about nature as a part of the process, and develops patience and confidence as well.

Introduction
For those of us unfortunate enough to have a job working in some box cubicle in an office building in the concrete jungle of some major urban center, the only way that we can keep our sanity is through escaping every Friday evening for a rejuvenating time in the wild. Research continually shows how time spent in nature is refreshing and renewing for our minds, bodies, and spirits. The rat race of city life, though it does have some perks, is also draining and without a space for recharging our energies, its easy to quickly get caught up in the stress and anxiety of business as usual.

Introduction
There is something truly magical about the desert sky at night. Looking up into a sky pierced with thousands of lights that have travelled millions of light years across the unimaginably vast distances of our Universe is not only mind boggling,  but it allows us to gain perspective into the true scope of our smallness and relative insignificance in the proverbial "grand scheme of things." At the same time, the Universe as seen on a dark, moonless desert night also has the ability to fill us with wonder at the gift of life itself; our participation in the cosmos that envelope us.

For those of us who live surrounded by city lights that drown out the magic of the night sky, finding a place to escape the light pollution of our urban areas is something that should be do....
