Top 10 national and state parks in Hawaii

Top 10 national and state parks in Hawaii | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
Every magical thing you’ve ever heard about Hawaii is true: these eight volcanic islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean are a tropical paradise, a geological marvel and an ecological treasure.
Marianne Riddile's insight:
We have been out to the islands several times. A doors-off helicopter tour of Kauai was the best way to see Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali coast. On the Big Island, we flew over the active volcano in helicopter and saw the hot lava bubbling. Just know the risks involved. Hiking the coast can be dangerous-waves can come and sweep you out or throw you on the sharp rocks. Motorhoming is non-exisistent on the islands--tent camping or staying in a hotel is the way to go.

Disaster shelter? Mars rover? Nope, it's an RV one man built for his daughter - Digital Trends

Disaster shelter? Mars rover? Nope, it's an RV one man built for his daughter - Digital Trends | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it

The EleMMent Palazzo may be the world’s most expensive RV, but chances are it’s nowhere near as capable as this latest exercise in vehicular hyperbole.

Designed and built by Bran Ferren, co-founder and chief creative officer of tech firm Applied Minds, the KiraVan is a globe-trotting expedition vehicle with go-anywhere ability of a mountain goat, and the accoutrements of a luxury spaceship.

According to Wired, Ferren built this unusual vehicle so he could explore the world with his daughter, Kira. That’s something many parents probably want to do with their kids, but most probably don’t have the financial or intellectual resources to make that happen

Four decades of violence in 12th century Mesa Verde

Four decades of violence in 12th century Mesa Verde | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
In the central Mesa Verde of southwest Colorado, four relatively peaceful centuries of pueblo living devolved into several decades of violence from 1140 and 1180

Via David Connolly
Marianne Riddile's insight:

Mesa Verde is a haunting place.  I first learned of it when I was in fourth grade and really wanted to see it.  I finally was able to go there on a family trip about 15 years ago. What an incredible place, but why would people move into a cliff?  How could they survive?  This article sheds some light on the reasons.  A trip to Mesa Verde should be on your bucket list.
