350 degrees Fahrenheit). Make sure the center rack is installed within the convection microwave oven, to allow hot air to circulate around the pan as the sliders bake. <em><u>Note</u></em><em>: The temperature of 325 degrees accounts for the 25-degree reduction in baking temperature often recommended in the Owner’s Manual of convection microwave oven manufacturers.</em></li>\n<li>Remove the sweet rolls from their packaging as a whole group of 12. Then remove one row of 3 rolls, leaving a 3&#215;3 group of 9 rolls together as a single loaf. The 3 rolls removed are leftovers you can consume for another purpose.</li>\n<li>Using a large, serrated knife, carefully cut the entire group of rolls in half so that there’s a bottom section and a top section.

Located just outside of Fairbanks, the hot springs are highlighted by a large, 165-degree Fahrenheit outdoor wading pool that lets couples relax while also taking in the awesome Alaska scenery. At night, the hot springs provide a prime viewing place for the Northern Lights when the conditions are right.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>As an added bonus,</strong> the area has other things to do, such as the nearby Aurora Ice Museum. And if you really want to get romantic, consider booking a couples escape or getaway package at the Chena Hot Springs Resort.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2429\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-1536x1024.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-2048x1365.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/robson-hatsukami-morgan-r8hw4Zs38zo-unsplash-770x513.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>Wild WIlly&#8217;s Hot Springs (California)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Smack dab in the California sagebrush and surrounded by mountains in every direction, the two hot spring pools that make up <strong><a href=\"https://www.outdoorproject.com/united-states/california/wild-willys-hot-springs\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Wild Willly&#8217;s</a> </strong>&#8211; also known as Crowley Hot Springs &#8211; are great for a relaxing and convenient dip. Located in the Lony Valley Caldera near Mammoth Lakes, these hot springs are fairly easily accessible by following a boardwalk for about 200 yards from an adjacent parking area.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>If you happen to live near Northern California</strong> or just want to take a fun road trip in your rec van this Valentine&#8217;s Day, consider putting Wild Willy&#8217;s on your list.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>Rocky Canyon Hot Springs (Idaho)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>The American west is full of fantastic hot springs, and <strong><a href=\"https://www.ultimatehotspringsguide.com/rocky-canyon-hot-springs.html\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Rocky Canyon Hot Springs</a></strong> in Idaho is no exception. Located in the Boise National Forest along the Middle Fork Payette River, it&#8217;s a bit more of a trek to get to &#8211; but absolutely worth the adventure. <span style=\"font-size: 16px;\">Park your van on Middlefork Road in Valley County and then prepare for a brief hike with your Valentine into the forest to access the hot springs. Note that you&#8217;ll have to forge the Middle Fork Payette River to get there, so wear appropriate clothing and you might even consider bringing a change of clothes in case you get too cold or wet. The hot springs are rustic pools that have been built up with rocks. While the pools vary in temperature, the top one tends to always be the warmest at around 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and they get cooler the further you get to the main river. If you really want to make it an adventure, you can set up camp near the hot springs and enjoy it for several days.</span></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>These hot springs can get quite crowded</strong> during the busy tourist summer months, but you&#8217;re likely to have them all to yourself in the winter.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>San Antonio Hot Springs (New Mexico)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Tucked away in the Jemez Mountains with valley views, <a href=\"https://www.theoutbound.com/new-mexico/hiking/hike-to-san-antonio-hot-springs\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>San Antonio Hot Springs</strong></a> is one of the dreamiest locations in the American Southwest. Located off Forest Service Road 376 North, you can either attempt to drive your rec van to the springs on an off-road trail or just park in a small visitors&#8217; lot and take a 5-mile hike to get to them. Whichever adventure you choose, you&#8217;re not likely to be disappointed. Since you&#8217;re somewhat off the beaten path (literally), you&#8217;re more likely to have the hot springs all to yourself this Valentine&#8217;s Day.</p>\n<p><strong>Just imagine relaxing</strong> in one of four natural hot spring pools as you take in the picturesque New Mexico scenery. It beats the heck out of dinner at a crowded restaurant.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2425\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-768x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"768\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-768x1024.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-225x300.jpg 225w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-1152x1536.jpg 1152w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-1536x2048.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-370x493.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-770x1027.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/devon-hawkins-b7S-gT-FeVk-unsplash-scaled.jpg 1920w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>Umpqua Hot Springs (Oregon)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Cascade Mountain views.

Located off Highway 138, you should prepare for a 2-mile hike during the winter months. But once you get there, you can relax and bathe in the 108-degree Farenhiet pools that are perched on a rock face over the North Umpqua River with views of the Cascade Mountains. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 16px;\"><strong>With so many waterfalls nearby,</strong> consider adding time to visit many of the nearby falls as part of your trip.</span></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>Fifth Water Hot Springs (Utah)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong><a href=\"https://utah.com/hiking/fifth-waterfalls-trail\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Fifth Water Hot Springs</a> </strong>is notable for a few reasons. One, the waters are a bright blue, looking like something out of a science fiction movie. Two, a dip in the springs offers fantastic Diamond Fork Canyon views. And three, the springs are swimming holes along Fifth Water Creek. While it&#8217;s not likely to be busy during the winter months so you can get some critical 1:1 time with your Valentine, if there are other adventurers that have the same idea as you and your spouse, just head further down the river, where it tends to be far less popular.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>With waterfalls, hiking trails and so much more</strong> to do in the Canyon, consider taking a few days to explore and connect with nature.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>Conundruum Hot Springs (Colorado)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Aspen is synonymous with skiing and hot springs, and if you&#8217;re willing to put in a 17-mile round trip hike, you&#8217;ll be greatly rewarded with a dip in <strong><a href=\"https://www.recreation.gov/permits/273336\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Conundrum Hot Springs</a>.</strong> Located in the heart of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness and settled in the Rocky Mountains, the springs can reach temperatures of 120-degrees Fahrenheit and allow couples to take in breathtaking views. Like we said, it&#8217;s a little bit more of a challenging hike, but you&#8217;ll be rewarded with terrific scenic views and a hot spring to soothe your muscles.</p>\n<p><strong>What&#8217;s more is that the adventure</strong> of getting there is more likely to keep crowds away, especially during the winter season.</p>\n<p>There is nothing better than being on the road with your loved one on this day of love.</p>\n</div>\n", "excerpt": "<p>&nbsp; Picturesque hikes in some of the most beautiful scenery in nature.

While you do have the option to rely on free wi-fi in select parks and campgrounds, we highly recommend having a hot spot on hand for internet reliability. You don’t want to put yourself in the position of awkwardly dropping out of video conferences due to slow or spotty public internet service. Be sure to do some research on your current mobile provider before making your final selection whether looking for unlimited data or a pay-as-you-use plan may better suit your needs. Check your rec van to see if it’s already rigged with an onboard hotspot and wi-fi extender – that will help cut down on the cost of renting or purchasing equipment from your mobile provider.</span></p>\n<h4><b>Establish a Dedicated Desk Space</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">No matter what your work style looks like, it’s important to have an area dedicated to your productivity. If you’d like the flexibility of taking your work out in the fresh air beneath your patio awning, a portable fold-out chair and table will do the trick. You can easily store them under your bed when you’re offline. The dinette is a commonly used area that yields easy access with storage cabinetry overhead for your tech and files. If you’re working with portable tech, you can always convert this space for moments of leisure. Camper vans with a power lift bed create the perfect office space within a repurposed gear garage, whether you’d like to invest in a permanent or collapsible desk space. Remember – wherever you wish to establish your mobile office, keeping your work separate from ‘play’ will help you stay on task and away from distraction.</span></p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2419\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-733x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"733\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-733x1024.jpg 733w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-215x300.jpg 215w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-768x1073.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-1100x1536.jpg 1100w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-1466x2048.jpg 1466w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-370x517.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-770x1075.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-scaled.jpg 1833w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 733px) 100vw, 733px\" /></p>\n<h4><b>Keep Your Work Items Secure and Organized</b><b><br />\n</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While working within the limited space of a <a href=\"https://recvan.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>Class B</strong></a> may feel like a challenge, there are plenty of ways to get creative with your If you have a sizable stack of files you need to keep close by and protected, we recommend investing in plastic storage bins.

Use the backdrop of nature as your muse rather than a distraction from your daily tasks by developing a regimen you can stick to. A timed coffee maker will serve as your best friend if you need to caffeinate before you get productive. You can greet the sunrise by taking your yoga mat outside for a session in the fresh air with perfect scenery. Set a specific time for your breaks and get back out in the wild with a revitalizing nature picnic and stroll. Plan your meals at least a day in advance to allow yourself to take in the most of working in surrounding nature. Whatever helps you get through the day, set a schedule that you can comfortably stick through so that your time isn’t whisked away before you’ve completed your tasks and goals.</span></p>\n<h4><b>Take Note Of What’s Not Working</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Do you ever have a day ended with a list of items you didn’t get to? Adjusting from the typical timetable of driving to work, working in a regular office space, and clocking out by five to keeping yourself accountable can be overwhelming for some. If you’re not used to the new work lifestyle, give yourself some grace by making small adjustments as you work towards your own end goal. Instead of diving head-first into full-time remote work, take your work out on select days of the week for some healthy trial and error. This way, you won’t feel so down, leading yourself to believe the adjustment is just impossible. Simply making a list of what doesn’t work when you working out of your camper will save you from the headache of repeat mistakes and bad habits.

If your work requires scanned documents and quick signatures, go for a PDF scanning app instead of cluttering your camper with a printer/scanner.

There are also many dispersed camping sites around the area that you can find on iOverlander or <a href=\"https://freecampsites.net\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>FreeCampsites.net</strong></a>, including beautiful creekside locations in the National Forest nearby.

The area has two overnight parking lots for occupied vehicles, the White Salmon and Heather Meadows lots. You do need to make reservations, but the spaces start out at $27 per night. Though there are restroom facilities in these lots, it is primitive camping, with limitations of up to seven nights of camping.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2408\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1024x686.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"686\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1024x686.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-300x201.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-768x514.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1536x1028.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-2048x1371.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-370x248.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-770x515.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Mount Bachelor, Oregon</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Just a little over 20 miles west of Bend, Mount Bachelor&#8217;s gives you advanced terrain as Oregon&#8217;s top expert terrain location.

Though it&#8217;s a small resort, they&#8217;re still a strong contender, finishing as the second most family-friendly Idaho resort and one of the top five small resorts located in North America. But don&#8217;t let those awards make you think it&#8217;s all fancy, they offer overnight parking for van lifers and other self-contained vehicles starting at just $20 per night, making it easier to stay and play in this beautiful wilderness.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2403\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1024x768.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"768\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1024x768.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-300x225.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-768x576.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-370x278.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-770x578.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Called Big Mountain for its 3,000 skiiable acres, Whitefish Mountain Resort is located a short 25 miles east of Glacier National Park, giving you some great views. Featuring runs that work well for almost any level of ability, the resort has 111 marked trails and rises to 6,817 feet in elevation, giving you fabulous views all around. The resort also has a selection of outstanding restaurants, breweries and bars, with overnight parking in the Aspin lot at $15 per night on a first come, first served basis. With over seven decades of skiing history, the resort also features hiking and biking trails later in the season, in addition to the Summit Nature Center with information on the area&#8217;s wildlife and ecology.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Wolf Creek Ski Area, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Colorado has a ton of great ski areas, but many of them are not very van lifer friendly. Not Wolf Creek. With an average snowfall of 430 inches, Wold Creek has the most snow of any resort in the state, making it a great place to chase the powder. Its location, which is fairly remote compared to other Colorado ski sites, allows you to avoid competition when you want to create fresh tracks. Though they technically permit overnight parking in the overflow lot, many people tell stories of parking next to the lifts in the resort&#8217;s main lot without issue after hours. With 1,600 acres of skiiable enjoyment all located over 10,000 feet in elevation, the terrain offers opportunities for skiers of all abilities.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2410\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1024x768.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"768\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1024x768.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-300x225.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-768x576.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-370x278.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-770x578.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<div>\n<h4>Grand Targhee Resort, Wyoming</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>For some really wild skiing and snowboarding, the 2,602 acres of the Grand Targhee Resort spreads out on the western side of the Teton Mountains, into the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Boasting over 500 inches of snowfall every seasons, it gives you a wide range of winter esperiences, including the only cat skiing operation available in the state on 602 acres of powder. Want to take a break from the slopees? Fat biking, snowshoeing and nordic skiing trails spread out across the resort, with dry campsites available from $28-$38 nightly and electrical hook-ups available from $40-$50, with easy access to the trails as well as the slopes in this beautiful location.</p>\n</div>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Mount Hood Meadows, Oregon</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Located in beautiful Mount Hood National Forest and a convenient 90-minute drive from Portland&#8217;s city streets, Mount Hood Meadows provides an easy winter escape from the big city without the big drive to a lot of other van lifer friendly locations. The resort covers 2,150 acres of skiing enjoyment on the southeast side of Mount Hood, which stretches to 11,239 feet. The resort stretches up to 7,300 feet, providing amazing mountain views, and a wide range of terrain. This includes easy-cruising beginner slopes, intermediate slopes for those ready for a little more challenge, gate-accessed Double Black Diamond runs for seasoned professionals and 140 acres of night skiing pleasure. With 14 overnight RV spaces, lacking facilities, open on a first come first served basis for free with an Oregon Sno-Park permit in the Sunrise lot, you can stay up to three nights consecutively over a five-day period.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2405\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1536x1024.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-2048x1365.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-770x513.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Silverton Mountain, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>If you&#8217;re looking for some expert slopes, Silverton Mountain&#8217;s terrain gives you some of the steepest slopes in the state. Though it only has a single lift, visitors will often hike or ski along the ridge lines so that they can get to the mountain&#8217;s wilder terrain. Visitors are required to have a beacon, probe and shovel, which are available for rent on the mountain. It&#8217;s one of the locations where you can also get guided heli skiing with prices starting out at $219 per day. Though you may need to move your van for the plow if it snows, camping is allowed on the side of the road that leads into the mountain, but it&#8217;s a low cost for putting down fresh tracks on such amazing terrain.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Loveland Ski Area, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Perched on top of the Continental Divide, Loveland has a summit just over 13,000 feet. As one of Colorado&#8217;s highest-elevation ski areas, it also has an average annual snowfall of over 420 inches, with over 1,800 acres of lift-accessible terrain, with even more skiiable areas accessable by boot packing. Only a short drive out of Colorado&#8217;s Front Range, it&#8217;s a popular choice for snowborders and skiiers who want to avoid the tight crowds at Vail and Breckenridge. Parking is free in the area&#8217;s lots, and the policies don&#8217;t prohibit you from parking overnight. Just be sure that you&#8217;re mindful and respectful of staff and other visitors, and be ready to move out of the way of the snow plow if needed.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>These areas will provide you with plenty of wintertime pleasure and amazing slopes. Ready to hit the pow and enjoy some serious skiing or snowboarding time this winter? Why not drop a comment below and start a conversation? You&#8217;ll find some great RecVan lifestyle aficionados to hang out with on the slopes or around the campfire later in the day.</p>\n</div>\n", "excerpt": "<p>&nbsp; With winter solidly locked in, it&#8217;s time to chase the pow out west, finding the best places for winter van living.

Note that some campgrounds are closed in summer, due to excessive heat and lack of water, so be sure to plan carefully before you head into the desert.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2450\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-1536x1024.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-2048x1365.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/jordan-brown-SNVqAgcU6-E-unsplash-770x513.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>OCEANSIDE AND CARLSBAD</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h5>Where to Van Camp: <a href=\"https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=660\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">South Carlsbad State Beach</a></h5>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>Why We Love It: </strong>About 35 miles north of San Diego, Carlsbad and Oceanside are archetypal southern California seaside towns.

Located in the Boise National Forest along the Middle Fork Payette River, it&#8217;s a bit more of a trek to get to &#8211; but absolutely worth the adventure. <span style=\"font-size: 16px;\">Park your van on Middlefork Road in Valley County and then prepare for a brief hike with your Valentine into the forest to access the hot springs. Note that you&#8217;ll have to forge the Middle Fork Payette River to get there, so wear appropriate clothing and you might even consider bringing a change of clothes in case you get too cold or wet. The hot springs are rustic pools that have been built up with rocks. While the pools vary in temperature, the top one tends to always be the warmest at around 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and they get cooler the further you get to the main river. If you really want to make it an adventure, you can set up camp near the hot springs and enjoy it for several days.</span></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><strong>These hot springs can get quite crowded</strong> during the busy tourist summer months, but you&#8217;re likely to have them all to yourself in the winter.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h3>San Antonio Hot Springs (New Mexico)</h3>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Tucked away in the Jemez Mountains with valley views, <a href=\"https://www.theoutbound.com/new-mexico/hiking/hike-to-san-antonio-hot-springs\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>San Antonio Hot Springs</strong></a> is one of the dreamiest locations in the American Southwest. Located off Forest Service Road 376 North, you can either attempt to drive your rec van to the springs on an off-road trail or just park in a small visitors&#8217; lot and take a 5-mile hike to get to them. Whichever adventure you choose, you&#8217;re not likely to be disappointed. Since you&#8217;re somewhat off the beaten path (literally), you&#8217;re more likely to have the hot springs all to yourself this Valentine&#8217;s Day.</p>\n<p><strong>Just imagine relaxing</strong> in one of four natural hot spring pools as you take in the picturesque New Mexico scenery.

While you do have the option to rely on free wi-fi in select parks and campgrounds, we highly recommend having a hot spot on hand for internet reliability. You don’t want to put yourself in the position of awkwardly dropping out of video conferences due to slow or spotty public internet service. Be sure to do some research on your current mobile provider before making your final selection whether looking for unlimited data or a pay-as-you-use plan may better suit your needs. Check your rec van to see if it’s already rigged with an onboard hotspot and wi-fi extender – that will help cut down on the cost of renting or purchasing equipment from your mobile provider.</span></p>\n<h4><b>Establish a Dedicated Desk Space</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">No matter what your work style looks like, it’s important to have an area dedicated to your productivity. If you’d like the flexibility of taking your work out in the fresh air beneath your patio awning, a portable fold-out chair and table will do the trick. You can easily store them under your bed when you’re offline. The dinette is a commonly used area that yields easy access with storage cabinetry overhead for your tech and files. If you’re working with portable tech, you can always convert this space for moments of leisure. Camper vans with a power lift bed create the perfect office space within a repurposed gear garage, whether you’d like to invest in a permanent or collapsible desk space. Remember – wherever you wish to establish your mobile office, keeping your work separate from ‘play’ will help you stay on task and away from distraction.</span></p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2419\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-733x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"733\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-733x1024.jpg 733w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-215x300.jpg 215w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-768x1073.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-1100x1536.jpg 1100w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-1466x2048.jpg 1466w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-370x517.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-770x1075.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash-scaled.jpg 1833w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 733px) 100vw, 733px\" /></p>\n<h4><b>Keep Your Work Items Secure and Organized</b><b><br />\n</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While working within the limited space of a <a href=\"https://recvan.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>Class B</strong></a> may feel like a challenge, there are plenty of ways to get creative with your If you have a sizable stack of files you need to keep close by and protected, we recommend investing in plastic storage bins.

Use the backdrop of nature as your muse rather than a distraction from your daily tasks by developing a regimen you can stick to. A timed coffee maker will serve as your best friend if you need to caffeinate before you get productive. You can greet the sunrise by taking your yoga mat outside for a session in the fresh air with perfect scenery. Set a specific time for your breaks and get back out in the wild with a revitalizing nature picnic and stroll. Plan your meals at least a day in advance to allow yourself to take in the most of working in surrounding nature. Whatever helps you get through the day, set a schedule that you can comfortably stick through so that your time isn’t whisked away before you’ve completed your tasks and goals.</span></p>\n<h4><b>Take Note Of What’s Not Working</b></h4>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Do you ever have a day ended with a list of items you didn’t get to? Adjusting from the typical timetable of driving to work, working in a regular office space, and clocking out by five to keeping yourself accountable can be overwhelming for some. If you’re not used to the new work lifestyle, give yourself some grace by making small adjustments as you work towards your own end goal. Instead of diving head-first into full-time remote work, take your work out on select days of the week for some healthy trial and error. This way, you won’t feel so down, leading yourself to believe the adjustment is just impossible. Simply making a list of what doesn’t work when you working out of your camper will save you from the headache of repeat mistakes and bad habits.

There are also many dispersed camping sites around the area that you can find on iOverlander or <a href=\"https://freecampsites.net\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>FreeCampsites.net</strong></a>, including beautiful creekside locations in the National Forest nearby.

The area has two overnight parking lots for occupied vehicles, the White Salmon and Heather Meadows lots. You do need to make reservations, but the spaces start out at $27 per night. Though there are restroom facilities in these lots, it is primitive camping, with limitations of up to seven nights of camping.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2408\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1024x686.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"686\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1024x686.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-300x201.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-768x514.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-1536x1028.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-2048x1371.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-370x248.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/egor-myznik-7bVQwVwgmhw-unsplash-770x515.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Mount Bachelor, Oregon</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Just a little over 20 miles west of Bend, Mount Bachelor&#8217;s gives you advanced terrain as Oregon&#8217;s top expert terrain location.

Though it&#8217;s a small resort, they&#8217;re still a strong contender, finishing as the second most family-friendly Idaho resort and one of the top five small resorts located in North America. But don&#8217;t let those awards make you think it&#8217;s all fancy, they offer overnight parking for van lifers and other self-contained vehicles starting at just $20 per night, making it easier to stay and play in this beautiful wilderness.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2403\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1024x768.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"768\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1024x768.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-300x225.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-768x576.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-370x278.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lee-sullivan-A0OR1JH2iHw-unsplash-770x578.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Whitefish Mountain Resort, Montana</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Called Big Mountain for its 3,000 skiiable acres, Whitefish Mountain Resort is located a short 25 miles east of Glacier National Park, giving you some great views. Featuring runs that work well for almost any level of ability, the resort has 111 marked trails and rises to 6,817 feet in elevation, giving you fabulous views all around. The resort also has a selection of outstanding restaurants, breweries and bars, with overnight parking in the Aspin lot at $15 per night on a first come, first served basis. With over seven decades of skiing history, the resort also features hiking and biking trails later in the season, in addition to the Summit Nature Center with information on the area&#8217;s wildlife and ecology.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Wolf Creek Ski Area, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Colorado has a ton of great ski areas, but many of them are not very van lifer friendly. Not Wolf Creek. With an average snowfall of 430 inches, Wold Creek has the most snow of any resort in the state, making it a great place to chase the powder. Its location, which is fairly remote compared to other Colorado ski sites, allows you to avoid competition when you want to create fresh tracks. Though they technically permit overnight parking in the overflow lot, many people tell stories of parking next to the lifts in the resort&#8217;s main lot without issue after hours. With 1,600 acres of skiiable enjoyment all located over 10,000 feet in elevation, the terrain offers opportunities for skiers of all abilities.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2410\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1024x768.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"768\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1024x768.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-300x225.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-768x576.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-370x278.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/rene-pierre-normandeau-sl87lljZVLg-unsplash-770x578.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<div>\n<h4>Grand Targhee Resort, Wyoming</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>For some really wild skiing and snowboarding, the 2,602 acres of the Grand Targhee Resort spreads out on the western side of the Teton Mountains, into the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Boasting over 500 inches of snowfall every seasons, it gives you a wide range of winter esperiences, including the only cat skiing operation available in the state on 602 acres of powder. Want to take a break from the slopees? Fat biking, snowshoeing and nordic skiing trails spread out across the resort, with dry campsites available from $28-$38 nightly and electrical hook-ups available from $40-$50, with easy access to the trails as well as the slopes in this beautiful location.</p>\n</div>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Mount Hood Meadows, Oregon</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Located in beautiful Mount Hood National Forest and a convenient 90-minute drive from Portland&#8217;s city streets, Mount Hood Meadows provides an easy winter escape from the big city without the big drive to a lot of other van lifer friendly locations. The resort covers 2,150 acres of skiing enjoyment on the southeast side of Mount Hood, which stretches to 11,239 feet. The resort stretches up to 7,300 feet, providing amazing mountain views, and a wide range of terrain. This includes easy-cruising beginner slopes, intermediate slopes for those ready for a little more challenge, gate-accessed Double Black Diamond runs for seasoned professionals and 140 acres of night skiing pleasure. With 14 overnight RV spaces, lacking facilities, open on a first come first served basis for free with an Oregon Sno-Park permit in the Sunrise lot, you can stay up to three nights consecutively over a five-day period.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2405\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-1536x1024.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-2048x1365.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/lucie-marchant-np8j3ARZjdk-unsplash-770x513.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Silverton Mountain, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>If you&#8217;re looking for some expert slopes, Silverton Mountain&#8217;s terrain gives you some of the steepest slopes in the state. Though it only has a single lift, visitors will often hike or ski along the ridge lines so that they can get to the mountain&#8217;s wilder terrain. Visitors are required to have a beacon, probe and shovel, which are available for rent on the mountain. It&#8217;s one of the locations where you can also get guided heli skiing with prices starting out at $219 per day. Though you may need to move your van for the plow if it snows, camping is allowed on the side of the road that leads into the mountain, but it&#8217;s a low cost for putting down fresh tracks on such amazing terrain.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<h4>Loveland Ski Area, Colorado</h4>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>Perched on top of the Continental Divide, Loveland has a summit just over 13,000 feet. As one of Colorado&#8217;s highest-elevation ski areas, it also has an average annual snowfall of over 420 inches, with over 1,800 acres of lift-accessible terrain, with even more skiiable areas accessable by boot packing. Only a short drive out of Colorado&#8217;s Front Range, it&#8217;s a popular choice for snowborders and skiiers who want to avoid the tight crowds at Vail and Breckenridge. Parking is free in the area&#8217;s lots, and the policies don&#8217;t prohibit you from parking overnight. Just be sure that you&#8217;re mindful and respectful of staff and other visitors, and be ready to move out of the way of the snow plow if needed.</p>\n</div>\n<div>\n<p>These areas will provide you with plenty of wintertime pleasure and amazing slopes.

If you plan to stay in one place for a couple of months at a time and enjoy interacting with people daily, you can snag a seasonal job such as working at a ski resort or helping with the harvest on a farm. Traveling nurses can temporarily relocate to areas of high demand for assignments.</p>\n<p>If you’ll be switching locations more often, you can still do jobs like photography that take you outside of your van. Registering with a pet- or house-sitting website is also a flexible way to make some extra income along your travels.</p>\n<p>On the other hand, you might want a job that provides you with the ultimate freedom when it comes to your itinerary. Remote desk jobs are ideal because you can work anywhere with cell service from the comfort of your van. Digital nomads often do graphic design, web development, online teaching or tutoring, accounting, customer service, data entry, writing, virtual assisting… the list goes on. Essentially, any position that can be accomplished with a computer and cell phone is fair game for van life.</p>\n<p>If you’re extremely hardworking and lucky, you can even make an income from your adventurous lifestyle itself, whether that’s by making YouTube videos, blog posts, or sponsored content on social media.</p>\n<p>Full-time or part-time, freelance or for a company, the possibilities for remote work are near endless. Digital nomad roles are one of the most popular ways to make money on the road, so that’s what we’ll focus on for the rest of this post.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2395\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-938x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"938\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-938x1024.jpg 938w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-275x300.jpg 275w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-768x838.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-370x404.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1-770x841.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_1.jpg 1080w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 938px) 100vw, 938px\" /><br />\nPhotography: <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/vanziehartlieb/\"><strong>@vanziehartlieb</strong></a></p>\n<h5>GETTING A REMOTE JOB</h5>\n<p>Perhaps the easiest way to get a remote position is to adapt your existing job to a traveling lifestyle. If you work on a computer at your current job, whether in the office or at home, try this option first. Talk to your employer about the idea and see if they’re open to a trial run. If you continue performing well, there’s a good chance they won’t mind you switching up your locations.</p>\n<p>If you’re trying to find a new remote job, you can look on traditional job search websites like Indeed which often have search tools for remote positions. To get more specific, check out sites dedicated entirely to virtual work like FlexJobs, We Work Remotely, and Virtual Vocations. Freelance creatives can find gigs on Dribbble, Fiverr, and Freelancer.</p>\n<p>Job listing websites can help you get an idea of the types of opportunities available. However, simply sending in an application isn’t the best way to stand out amongst the growing number of professionals interested in working from home. We talked to Juliana Rabbi, a career coach who focuses on remote work, for some advice. Here’s what she said:</p>\n<p>“If you want to land a well-paid and good remote job in 2022, the last thing you should be doing is applying for remote jobs. This is not effective anymore, and it&#8217;s also what everyone else is doing. Instead of applying for a job: create a list of your ‘dream companies,’ follow them on LinkedIn, interact with people working there, and use every relationship opportunity to add value. If you do all of that before applying for jobs, I guarantee you will achieve better results.” -Juliana Rabbi, Career Coach for Remote Work (<strong><a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/juliana.rabbi/?hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">@juliana.rabbi</a></strong>)</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2391\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1-770x513.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_1.jpg 1200w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /><br />\nPhotography: <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/andwhatliesahead/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>@andwhatliesahead</strong></a></p>\n<h5>CREATING A WORKSPACE</h5>\n<p>Having a calm, ergonomic, and distraction-free workspace can do wonders for your motivation and productivity. So how do you accomplish this on the road? First of all, it helps to start with a van model that has at least one–if not multiple–possible workspaces built into the layout. Check out <a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/lifestyle/8-great-camper-vans-for-working-remotely/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>“8 Great Campervans for Working Remotely</strong>”</a> for our recommendations.</p>\n<p>Some of the most common spaces van dwellers turn to for working on a laptop include dinette tables, front passenger and driver seats with moveable table surfaces, and folding tables set up outside the van under an awning or other source of shade. Although carting around a folding table might seem like a lot when you have limited space, your outdoor desk can serve multiple functions as an extra surface for food prep and an alfresco dining table. If you want to work inside your van but don’t have a built-in working surface, try a collapsible tv tray table.</p>\n<p>If you’re traveling with a partner who’s also working remotely, make sure you each have your own desk space. When phone calls or Zoom meetings are part of the equation, it’s probably best for one partner to be inside while the other works outside. In a pinch, turn to noise-canceling headphones.</p>\n<p>Wherever you choose to work, you’ll want to create a peaceful, clean, and functional environment.

Figuring out these technical aspects can feel intimidating for newbies, but have no fear–the experienced van dwellers are here!</p>\n<p>We reached out to couple Lovell and Paris Lee, who have found financial freedom through van life and are now sharing the knowledge with others through their <strong><a href=\"https://novelkulture.com/\">Travelin’ Hustlas Podcast</a> </strong>and YouTube channel (<strong><a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/c/novelkulture\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Novel Kulture</a></strong>). They’ve been working on the road for 5 years, and have tested out different sources of internet so you don’t have to. Here’s what they have to say to the Rec Van community:</p>\n<p>“Wanna run your business and travel at the same time? When working from your van or RV, it is essential to have a reliable source of internet and cellular data connection. If you&#8217;re serious about cranking out some good work, then take a look at what works for us.</p>\n<p>For mobile browsing and GPS, we use the Weboost Drive RV to boost our cell signals in bad areas. For heavy hitters like large file uploads and conference calls on the go, we installed the Pepwave Max Transit Duo router with the Poynting 7-in-1 antenna. We don&#8217;t pay anything to use the Pepwave or the Weboost. We do, however, pay for the 300GB/month AT&amp;T data plan. The combination of the Weboost and Pepwave has been a game-changer for our over-the-road capabilities.</p>\n<p>We loved our first 4 years on the road. But, what held us back when creating content for our Youtube channel &#8216;Novel Kulture&#8217;, was having to rely on coffee shops and libraries. This led to significant fatigue and frustration. Their connections are simply not strong enough, safe enough, or reliable enough to get real work done on the road.</p>\n<p>After taking the measures we discussed above, we were able to confidently and comfortably launch our Travelin&#8217; Hustlas podcast. It&#8217;s fitting that our podcast&#8217;s focus is on sharing how digital nomads make, save, and invest their money while living full time in their van or RV.” -Lovell and Paris Lee of Novelkulture (<strong><a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/lovellandparis/?hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">@lovellandparis</a></strong>)</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2392\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-1024x683.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"683\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-768x512.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2-770x513.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@andwhatliesahead_2.jpg 1200w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /><br />\nPhotography: @andwhatliesahead</p>\n<h5>SETTING A SCHEDULE</h5>\n<p>If you’re working full-time for a company, you might be part of the traditional 9-to-5 hours set. But for most digital nomads, there is more wiggle room when it comes to scheduling. Job flexibility is a major draw for van dwellers because you can make your workday work for you. You’re able to put in the hours whenever it best fits into your travel plans.</p>\n<p>Prefer driving to new locations in the morning, exploring in the early afternoon, and cozying up to work in the van after dark? Want to work longer hours on a few days to get more days off? You can! Pro tip: try working through the weekend to get national parks and other popular destinations basically to yourself on weekdays.</p>\n<p>The only downside of all of this flexibility is that you may find it hard to be productive if your working hours are “whenever.” Plus, you might be tempted away from work by the gorgeous and ever-changing scenery around you. That’s what van lifer and artist Jamie Leo speaks to here:</p>\n<p>“Working remotely can be difficult when the world is your backyard! It’s easy to fall into the trap of wanting to explore instead of work… every day. That’s why I’ve found it helpful to create a schedule for myself to carve out specific times to get work done. It’s also very helpful to set up a workspace that will help me feel productive &#8211; I like to set up my table and play light music. This helps push me into the mindset of work so that I can get a lot done and have plenty of time to adventure later!” -Jamie Leo (<strong><a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/andwhatliesahead/?hl=en\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">@andwhatliesahead</a></strong>)</p>\n<p>As Jamie points out, even if you don’t have a schedule imposed on you by an employer, you might want to figure out a general guideline to get in a healthy routine. Set your working hours for the time of day you tend to feel most productive, make sure you have little breaks built into your daily schedule, and create a firm boundary between work and play. For example, instead of firing up Netflix at the table you’ve been sitting at for hours, close your laptop and mark the end of the workday with a refreshing walk or cup of tea.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2397\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-1024x684.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"684\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-1024x684.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-300x200.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-768x513.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-370x247.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option-770x514.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/@vanziehartlieb_3-extra-photo-option.jpg 1198w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /><br />\nPhotography: <a href=\"https://www.instagram.com/vanziehartlieb/\"><strong>@vanziehartlieb</strong></a></p>\n<h5>BUDGETING</h5>\n<p>One of the reasons van life is popular with young people is that it offers a fast track to better finances.

The van also has a 3,500-pound rear hitch receiver, which means you can bring along a small boat for a lake vacation or even tow another vehicle for day trips in big cities.</p>\n<p>The van’s off-grid technology, including a 48V lithium power system and 200 watts of solar power, offer self-sufficiency while boondocking. With its durable rubber flooring, the Launch doesn’t mind if you track in some dirt or water after a long day of exploring.</p>\n<h5><strong>All-Weather Comfort</strong></h5>\n<p>Speaking of the elements, this van is well-equipped for whatever mother nature throws at it. Travel safely on cloudy days with a rain-sensing wiper system. The convenient armless patio awning is also equipped with a wind sensor that prevents damage. Winter sports fanatics will appreciate the van’s winterization drain system.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2378\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-774x1024.png\" alt=\"\" width=\"774\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-774x1024.png 774w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-227x300.png 227w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-768x1016.png 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-370x490.png 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM-770x1019.png 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.10-AM.png 1008w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 774px) 100vw, 774px\" /></p>\n<h5><strong>Luxurious Details</strong></h5>\n<p>Some say that the joy of life is all in the contrasts. A hot shower feels wonderful after a walk in brisk weather. A homemade meal tastes better after an adrenaline-filled day of outdoor sports. With the right camper van, you can enjoy a comfortable mini home that, unlike tent camping, allows you to recharge for endless adventures.</p>\n<p>In this way, the thoughtful design details of the Launch make van life more enjoyable and sustainable. These details include heated swivel passenger and driver seats, a smartphone tray with wireless charging, the user-friendly Firefly Multiplex command center, and a fold-down exterior table.</p>\n<p>The list goes on–get the best of indoor/outdoor living with adjustable screen doors for both the side and rear doors of the van. Feel like a chef with the Launch’s sleek stainless steel sink and portable induction cooktop, not to mention pull-out extensions for the countertop and pantry.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2381\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-1024x680.png\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"680\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-1024x680.png 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-300x199.png 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-768x510.png 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-1536x1019.png 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-370x246.png 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM-770x511.png 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.31-AM.png 1778w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<h5><strong>Smart Storage</strong></h5>\n<p>Good storage is a must-have in any camper van, and the Entegra Coach Launch does not disappoint. In fact, Entegra Coach is leading the pack with some features that are rarely–if ever–seen in vans made by other companies.</p>\n<p>You may have seen dropdown overhead beds with storage underneath, but you probably haven’t heard of this bed’s other defining feature–fiberglass pods carved out of the van’s walls on either side of the bed to provide more room for getting a great night’s sleep. Likewise, you may have seen something like the removable bamboo shelves that turn the bathroom into a storage closet when not in use, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the retractable clothesline in the shower. The Entegra Coach team has truly thought of everything when it comes to keeping all of your belongings on board.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2379\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-1024x682.png\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"682\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-1024x682.png 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-300x200.png 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-768x511.png 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-1536x1022.png 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-370x246.png 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM-770x512.png 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.16-AM.png 1788w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<h5><strong>Streamlined Aesthetics </strong></h5>\n<p>Despite its ability to hold plenty of clothes, gear, food, and cooking utensils, the Launch won’t feel cluttered thanks to a modern and streamlined interior design. Technoform European-style cabinets stow your stuff, while the “Serenity” decor style adds all of the calm its name suggests. One of the Launch’s best features when it comes to design is that the minimalist interior puts all of the focus on the picturesque landscapes outside your windows.</p>\n<p>The fresh design continues on the exterior of the van. Opt for the classic standard option or show some personality with partial paint in two colorways. The partial paint design is made up of diagonal swatches of color that nod to the retro early days of vanning in a decidedly modern way.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2377\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-1024x690.png\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"690\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-1024x690.png 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-300x202.png 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-768x517.png 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-1536x1034.png 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-370x249.png 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM-770x519.png 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Screen-Shot-2022-01-17-at-9.40.02-AM.png 1758w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<h5><strong>Top-Notch Safety</strong></h5>\n<p>Whether you’re on the road for summer vacations or full-time van life, the safety features of your rig are key. The Launch makes defensive driving easy with technology like the lane-keeping assist, blind spot assist, and traffic sign assist. Plus, you can safely travel with up to four people thanks to the van’s two additional cab seats with seat belts (which double as extra seating for the collapsible dinette table).</p>\n<p>The best camper vans combine creature comforts with powerful outdoor capabilities. It is this perfect blend that allows van dwellers to happily venture further afield, for longer periods of time, and with more freedom and flexibility than other types of travelers can dream of. With all of the features discussed above–along with many others that we simply don’t have room to list–it’s easy to see that the Entegra Coach Launch embodies this “best of both worlds” approach.</p>\n<p>Ready to get the keys to your own Launch?

In fact, road trippers ranked the Southwest as one of the top destinations of interest for the upcoming year in a survey by Outdoorsy. We recommend hitting Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah on your road trip to get a good feel for the variety of this region.</p>\n<p>In Colorado, a wealth of outdoor adventure opportunities lies right outside the doors of your van. Hike a 14er–one of the state’s impressive 14,000+ foot peaks–in the Rocky Mountains, explore the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park, and ski in Aspen. For something a little more laidback, make some new friends over a craft beer in Fort Collins (or really anywhere in Colorado–the Centennial state has one of the highest concentrations of breweries in the country). Then enjoy a restful night among the conifers less than an hour away at <a href=\"https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/arp/recreation/recarea/?recid=36683&amp;actid=29\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\"><strong>Kelly Flats Campground</strong>.</a> For more recommendations, check out our <strong><a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/road-trip-guides/spring-2021-van-destinations-throughout-colorado/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Top Van Destinations in Colorado.</a></strong></p>\n<p>Then ramble down to New Mexico–aptly nicknamed the “Land of Enchantment.” You’ll fall in love with the rich culture of this state, from the ancient rock carvings at Petroglyphs National Monument to the modern-day hot air balloon fiesta held in Albuquerque each October. For some of the most unique natural landscapes in the U.S., check out White Sands National Park and Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Stay for free near the caverns at <strong><a href=\"https://freecampsites.net/#!199189&amp;query=sitedetails\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Chosa Campground</a>.</strong> Statewide, you’ll find delicious food, kind people, and top-notch rock climbing. For our favorite spots, check out <a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/travel/the-best-rock-climbing-locations-in-new-mexico/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">“<strong>The Best Rock Climbing Locations in New Mexico.</strong>”</a></p>\n<p>When it comes to road trips, Route 66 is iconic. Take this historic highway from New Mexico to Arizona. There, you’ll be treated to warm-hued desert landscapes including the Grand Canyon (which needs no introduction) and the lesser-known Red Rock State Park. <strong><a href=\"https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/coconino/recarea/?recid=55270\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Chavez Crossing Group Campground</a> </strong>serves as an ideal home base for contemplating the red rocks as well as visiting the art- and wellness-focused city of Sedona. Other quirky small cities include Flagstaff and Tucson. If you prefer the peace of nature, head to Saguaro National Park, where you’ll be dwarfed by stately cacti that can grow up to 60 feet tall.</p>\n<p>No American Southwest road trip would be complete without a stop (or a few) in Utah. This state is known for its breathtaking rock formations, starry skies, winter sports, and the Sundance Film Festival. Moab is a must-visit for van dwellers based on its location smack dab in the middle of multiple national and state parks, including Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse State Park. Moab is also popular with mountain bikers and rock climbers. Stay in style at the <strong><a href=\"https://www.sunoutdoors.com/utah/moab-valley-rv-resort-campground?utm_source=google&amp;utm_medium=local&amp;utm_campaign=yext\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Moab Valley RV Resort &amp; Campground.</a> </strong>The list of can’t miss locations in Utah goes on, but we’ll wrap it up with a nod to the iconic landscapes of Monument Valley.

The population density in the area, especially around Los Angeles, can be overwhelming, but van life means you can stay out of the fray and get the best of Southern California from the comfort of your home on wheels.</p>\n<p>San Diego is a welcoming city for van dwellers that boasts 70 miles of coastline, trendy foods, and plenty of opportunities to socialize and meet new people. If you’re a surfer, you’ll love the warm water and excellent surf breaks in the area. If you’d rather watch, you can catch a good view of the action from the piers at Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach. Stay in your own little waterfront paradise at <strong><a href=\"https://www.campland.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Campland on the Bay</a>.</strong> If you can tear yourself away from relaxing on the beach, explore the sandstone seaside cliffs at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve or scuba dive at the La Jolla Underwater Park. About an hour north along the coast, you’ll find one of Southern California’s best beaches for a vanning day trip, San Onofre State Beach. Here, you can park your van right up against the sand, opening your back doors on an Instagram-worthy view of the Pacific Ocean.</p>\n<p>For a totally different, yet equally pleasing, view, head inland to Joshua Tree National Park. The park gets its name from the unique spiky trees that dot the horizon. One can only admire the enterprising flora and fauna that survive and thrive in this drastic desert climate. In the spring, the landscape comes alive with a variety of unique blooms, earning it a place on our <a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/road-trip-guides/the-best-places-to-see-wildflowers-across-the-us/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">“<strong>Best Places to See Wildflowers Across the U.S.”</strong></a> list. To best enjoy the park, we recommend taking a walk on one of the many hiking trails (Hidden Valley Nature Trail is a quick loop that showcases the Joshua trees) or simply sitting atop a boulder and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

This large area spans from Texas to Florida and accordingly is quite diverse in its offerings. You’ll find everything from vibrant city life in New Orleans to peaceful hiking trails in Gulf State Park. The Gulf Coast is best explored on the leisurely-paced, flexible type of road trip that a camper van allows.</p>\n<p>Florida has been a favorite of RVers for generations thanks to its balmy weather and outstanding beaches. Get some R-and-R when you pull up to one of Florida’s many waterfront state parks, including Sebastian Inlet, Little Talbot Island, and Grayton Beach. We recommend camping at <strong><a href=\"https://www.floridastateparks.org/graytonbeach\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Grayton Beach State Park</a></strong> in the Florida Panhandle for fun-filled days spent hiking, paddleboarding on the lake, and enjoying the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. On the opposite end of the state, you’ll find the Florida Keys. These tropical islands are famous for their white sand beaches and resort-style amenities. Best of all? You can drive to the islands on the picturesque Overseas Highway–also known as the “Road to Paradise.” For more on the Sunshine State, check out our list of <strong><a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/travel/top-10-campgrounds-in-florida/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Florida’s hidden gems.</a></strong></p>\n<p>Keep the Third Coast nature tour going with stops at the family-friendly <strong><a href=\"https://www.gulfshores.com/lodging/campground-rvs/gulf-state-park-campgrounds/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Gulf State Park</a></strong> in Alabama and the verdant Greenville Cypress Preserve Trust in Mississippi. Then change up the pace by heading to New Orleans, Louisiana. The “Big Easy,” as New Orleans is affectionately dubbed, is the place to get your fill of diverse culinary treats, jazz music, nightlife, and melting pot culture. The French-Quarter is a must-visit for admiring 18th-century architecture and munching on powdered sugar-dusted beignets.

You’ll find pristine and jaw-dropping nature in the northwestern corner of the U.S. This region is known for its giant redwoods, dramatic rocky coastlines, and clear mountain lakes. The PNW would make a great road trip to start the new year off feeling refreshed and reconnected to what truly matters. Plus, with a wealth of free dispersed campsites, surveying the region won’t break the bank. For our recommendations, check out <a href=\"https://recvan.com/blog/travel/the-best-free-campsites-in-the-pacific-northwest/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">“<strong>The Best Free Campsites in the Pacific Northwest.</strong>”</a></p>\n<p>Oregon offers something for everyone. Explore the state’s plentiful ghost towns or the hipster city of Portland. Try windsurfing the prime waters of the Columbia River Gorge or relax while fishing for Rainbow Trout and Kokanee Salmon in Crater Lake, aka the deepest lake in the U.S. After fishing, boondock nearby at the dispersed <strong><a href=\"https://freeroam.app/campground/fr-960\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">FR 960</a> </strong>camping area. For inspiring scenery including forests, waterfalls, and panoramic views over the Columbia River Gorge, take a meandering drive on the Historic Columbia River Highway. Other areas of interest include Mount Hood National Forest, Newport, and the Oregon Coast Trail.</p>\n<p>For a wide array of outdoor activities year-round, head to Washington. Cycling, hiking, climbing, boating, kiteboarding, surfing, skiing, and snowboarding… You name it, Washington has got it. With tons of recreation-friendly areas in close proximity, you can easily fit multiple physical activities into a single day–if your sore muscles can handle it, that is. Stay at the highly-rated<strong> <a href=\"https://www.hipcamp.com/en-US/discover/washington/dean-s-campground\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Dean’s Campground</a> </strong>for access to Seattle, Tacoma, and multiple state parks. When it comes to nature, the Evergreen State lives up to its nickname with vibrant forest landscapes as far as the eye can see. Take in postcard-style views at Mount Rainier National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Olympic National Park.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2363\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-1024x768.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"1024\" height=\"768\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-1024x768.jpg 1024w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-300x225.jpg 300w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-768x576.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-1536x1152.jpg 1536w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-2048x1536.jpg 2048w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-370x278.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/Unsplash_5-The-Great-Lakes-770x578.jpg 770w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px\" /></p>\n<h5><strong>THE GREAT LAKES</strong></h5>\n<p>The Great Lakes region might not have the name recognition of some of the other places on this list, but that’s what makes it an exciting destination for 2022. If you’re an avid road tripper, you might have already visited the spots that are often circulated in the van life community, like California, Florida, and the PNW. Looking for something new? You’ll love the uncrowded lake beaches, bucolic campgrounds, and simple pleasures offered by the states surrounding the Great Lakes. Here, we’re highlighting Michigan and Minnesota.</p>\n<p>Touching four of the five Great Lakes, Michigan certainly deserves a mention when talking about the Great Lakes region. Its perfect placement means it has the largest freshwater coast of any state in the country, making it a paradise for anglers. Camp at <strong><a href=\"https://www.nps.gov/piro/planyourvisit/camping.htm\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore</a></strong> for a ruggedly-beautiful landscape of sandstone cliffs, hardwood trees, and the calm teal water of Lake Superior. You can also take a boat tour on Lake Michigan to see the small islands and lighthouses of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore from the water. Then flip the view from one of the area’s many hiking trails.</p>\n<p>While Minnesota only borders one of the Great Lakes, it is ideal for van life due in large part to the North Shore Drive. This scenic 142-mile highway straddles Lake Superior, offering ever-changing views of dramatic cliffs plunging into the water. Along the way, you can stop at multiple waterfall-filled state parks, the unusually-colored pink beach at Iona’s Beach Scientific and Natural Area, the popular Split Rock Lighthouse, and many more charming attractions. <strong><a href=\"https://lambsresort.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">Lamb’s Resort</a> </strong>is a notable campground along the way that features a 0.5-mile private beach. The state’s sole national park, Voyageurs National Park, is also considered the best place in the United States to see the northern lights.</p>\n<p>Which of these regions are you adding to your 2022 bucket list?

At just 20 feet long, the Sanctuary fits a remarkable amount of high-tech amenities inside, including a 24” tv and a JBL Flip speaker. Plus, Thor’s design team has thought of everything when it comes to storage. Roomy pull-out trays in the rear of the van, a Thule bike rack on the back door, and a roof rack with an attached ladder allow you to travel with everything you need on deck.</p>\n<p><img loading=\"lazy\" class=\"alignnone size-large wp-image-2346\" src=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-683x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"683\" height=\"1024\" srcset=\"https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-683x1024.jpg 683w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-200x300.jpg 200w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-768x1151.jpg 768w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-1025x1536.jpg 1025w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-370x555.jpg 370w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf-770x1154.jpg 770w, https://res.cloudinary.com/la-mesa-rv/image/upload/c_scale,w_1080/f_auto/v1/rec-van-assets/2022/01/2022-tranquility-paint-iridiumsilver-19p-rear-magneticcurtain-kf.jpg 1334w\" sizes=\"(max-width: 683px) 100vw, 683px\" /></p>\n<h3><a href=\"https://recvan.com/recvansearch?keyword=tranquility\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">2022 THOR MOTOR COACH TRANQUILITY</a></h3>\n<p>Thor’s 2022 Tranquility includes all of the amazing features of the Sanctuary.

Why? It was created with the needs (and wants) of outdoor sports enthusiasts in mind. A large gear garage beneath a power lift bed is the focal point of the van’s design, allowing you to store your rock-climbing, snowboarding, and backpacking equipment with ease. You can even store extra gear like boogie boards and swimsuits on removable shelves that fit neatly over the toilet. The Revel also boasts the most off-road capabilities of Winnebago’s models, thanks to its 3-liter turbo engine, on-demand four-wheel drive system, and high/low range mode. What does all of this technical talk mean?
