Hells Canyon Resort - Clarkston, Washington

Hell's Canyon Resort is a Marina, RV Park, Wedding venue and has a motel down the street.  This is a beautiful park that is so well maintained that is looks brand new!


The web site is also nice, but as shown in our last blog post, the text and links are too small to be easily read.


We have begun the process to format the site for use on phones and tablets. Here is the result for the home page. 


Now, mature RV travelers can use their phones to see the park, it's description and easily click on links to all web pages.  The site uses Responsive Web Design, meaning that the same content is reformatted for any device.

Come to Clarkston, stay at Hell's Canyon Resort and you will enjoy your stay.

On the Road Again - Making RV Park Web Sites Mobile Friendly

2016 was atypical for our travels.  After 9 1/2 years of moving often, staying at most one month in one location, we spent 7 months at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, California.  We needed to stay put to complete the hand off of the last of our 138 accounting software clients that we had nurtured for 39 years! During this time we have not posted to this blog for lack of time.

Now our time is freed up to once again travel at will. We continue into the 40th year of our computer software business. Our focus now is 100% on web site design and our specialty is RV park web sites.  As we travel through North America we continue to visit new parks, now numbering 398.  We don't stay at run-down parks.  If we find a nice park with a less than stellar web site, we offer our services.

Here is an example of HellsCanyon.net, a park we are currently contracting with.

Currently a mature RV traveler would have a difficult time viewing this site.  And perhaps they would move on to a different park site that is easier to see and navigate.

So, as an RV traveler, why should you care about the changes we are making to such park sites?  If you did not stay at this park because of the difficulty in viewing, you would miss out on a fantastic park!  It has wide concrete sites, beautiful grass, an indoor pool, reasonable rates, all right on the Snake River.

With our work and that of many other web design companies, eventually you, the RV traveler, will have better information at your fingertips. And that will make your life better!

FMCA Motorhome Rally Primer

FMCA is the Family Motor Coach Association. It was started in 1963 by 26 families who wanted to share their passion for motorhome travel and camping. Today there are over 75,000 active members including us.

FMCA holds rallies all over the USA. A lot goes on at these rallies and it can be intimidating to attend your first one. We wrote this travelogue to get folks the inside track about attending a rally.

This was our first rally, the Jan 2007 Indio Western Area rally.


In 2016 we attended again, this time after joining the California Coasters, a FMCA local club.  It was fun to belong to this group who provided golf cart tram service to the 1,800 participants of the rallies.

Yellowstone National Park Photo Collection

Of all the national parks Yellowstone is the most amazing.  It sits on top of  a dormant volcano caldera. As such you are treated to geysers, mud pots, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, hot springs and massive amounts of wildlife.

The wildlife will hide for their security, but the natural wonders are there for you everyday.

Just one of the dozens of gorgeous river views. You can stop driving every five minutes to get views like this.


Bison, elks, coyotes, bears and more are there for you viewing. "If" you can spot them. The best times for viewing are early morning and dusk.



Teddy Roosevelt dedicated Yellowstone as the first national park in 1872.  This was important as Yellowstone is an amazing creation of God.  Every president wants his name a park. This one was definitely justified.

Lewiston / Clarkson Photo Collection

It keeps getting better. As we travel around the USA and Canada we keep finding places that are just plain enjoyable. Such is the case for the Lewiston / Clarkson. It sits at the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake Rivers. Surrounded by water which everyone enjoys.

This is a place that you would not think to travel to. This exhibits the beauty of being a full time traveler. You go everywhere and you are rewarded for doing so.

Old Spiral Highway is one way to get to this area coming from the north.


The Columbia Queen can take you from Lewiston / Clarkson all the way to the Pacific Ocean via the Snake River which flows into the Columbia River.



Join us as we show you the Lewiston / Clarkson Photo Collection

Lake Chelan Photo Collection

When is the last time you swam in a lake whose water looked like a swim pool? You can do that in Lake Chelan, Washington. This area in Eastern Washington borders on the Columbia River.  Camping at Beebe Bridge is delightful.

Lake Chelan's "swim pool".
