Man Quits Job to Convert Old Van into Mobile Home to Travel the World - StumbleUpon

Man Quits Job to Convert Old Van into Mobile Home to Travel the World - StumbleUpon | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

Like many others, Mike Hudson longed to exchange the monotony of work and everyday routines for a life filled with adventure and travel. He made that dream a reality in 2013, when he quit his job as a systems engineer, gave away most of his worldly possessions, and began the enormous project of converting a rundown, 10-year-old van into a home on wheels called Vandog.

Marianne Riddile's insight:

Looks like he did a nice job.

This Is What Niagara Falls Looks Like When It Freezes Over | IFLScience | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
While gale-force winds, feet of snow, and blizzard bombardments can plunge a winter wonderland into a life-threatening deep freeze, there is an upside to the wintry weather: breathtaking images of the partially frozen Niagara Falls. Rather than deter tourists, it seems the icy waterfalls are getting people out of their blankets and into their jackets to view the scene.

Simply Amazing!

America's worst national parks

America's worst national parks | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

It’s always fun to come up with rankings for the “best of” travel – and within the majesty of America’s national park system, there is always a spirited competition between the likes of Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, and the Tetons, all of which I’ve enjoyed visiting multiple times.

But enough of praising “America’s Best Idea.” 

It’s much more fun to hate on things. 

With 59 national parks in the U.S., someplace has got to be on the bottom of the list, right? Too many people. Lousy facilities. Ridiculously hostile weather. So based on a minimum of research and a heap of biased analysis, here’s an authoritative list of America’s Worst National Parks. Or, if you’re a purist nature lover, you can just call this list “The 59th to 55th Most Awesome National Parks."

Marianne Riddile's insight:

What do you think?  There have to be some at the bottom of the list!
