This is video 2 of 3 from my trip to Witchita to see family. We spend sometime at the Botanica Garden in Witchita, they had a really cool butterfly exhibit and then we went to the Sedgwick zoo. We had a lot of fun and I want to thank my cameraman assistant Bently. He did a really good job. You can check out the video here: https://youtu.be/Pe5fM5k_sZE
This weeks video was the beginning of Labor day weekend. Paula and I went to Wichita KS to see my family. In this video we get a chance to catch a game at Busch stadium and explore Jefferson city, MO a little bit on our way. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/X7OxcdeYn_U
This weekend it was time to clean out and put the campervan into storage. Most likely it will be there for the winter. In the mean time i will be looking at mini school buses. In this weeks video we prep the van for storage. You can find it here, I hope you enjoy it.
This week has been crazy for me. Since deciding I had to let the campervan go I needed to find a new daily driver for work. Although I found one pretty quickly, I needed a bit of work and had some puzzling symptoms. Well after a lot of trouble shooting it is finally good to go and I can reliable get back and forth to work. Now I can start to think about my next camper project.
In this weeks video I want to share a bit of the weekend I had with my daughter a Universal Studios Orlando. We both had a great time. I hope you enjoy the video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/pNqO7NF84FYp
This will be a short update post. Something happened over the weekend that will change my travel dreams. I will be putting together a short video tonight after work explaining what has happened and what it will mean. Keep an eye out for the video.
I had this great idea to build a box to place on top of the van to carry all my camping gear. I could then just pull the box down when I’m not on the road and all my gear could easily be stored in one place. I ran into an issue with raising and lowering the box, it was heavier than I expected it would be. So I decided to build a lift for that purpose. Here is the video for that project.
Just put up a few of the pictures I took at the game on July 20th. It was a fun game and a very nice stadium. You can find the pictures here: http://theprudenttraveler.com/some-of-my-photos/
Just got this weeks video up. Sorry about it being a couple days late, but I was traveling. This week I share my exploration of the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area. It was very nice, but a wet and humid day so I didn’t do as much as I would have liked to. Then I made my way over to Tampa Bay to catch a baseball game. One more stadium off the bucket list!

We ran into a little problem with our solar panels. Shortly after we left Tampa Bay, one of the solar panels came lose from the roof rack on the van. It was already lose and I had tied it down with duct tape. It was actually the duct tape that kept the solar panel from flying away and maybe hitting someone or something. Fortunately there was no damage to the panel. When we got home I went to work repairing the mounting for the solar panels. I also want to send a shout out the the Florida Highway Patrol, an office stop and offered to help.
We stumbled upon The home still existing tied to the 11th President, James Polk. Although we were there a couple hours before they opened, we were able to look around the outside. Then it was back on the road to Nashville and to check out the Parthenon. If you like the video, please share.
