wine tasting, free camping & more
Willamette Valley Oregon
After a stressful two weeks dealing with truck troubles and being in the “Bermuda Triangle”, we decided to turn our trip around and take a detour to see a different part of Oregon. We love wine, so when we heard the Willamette Valley region of Oregon had great vineyards we decided to give it a go! We found a great Harvest Hosts camping spot at a vineyard just along the river. How amazing to be able to camp right next to the vineyard’s grapes! During our stay in Willamette Valley we go on several wine tastings, drink great beer at a traditional farmhouse brewery, and even get a tour of private art installation. It really turned our overall time in Oregon around and was an absolute blast! Watch the video below to see how great Willamette Valley Oregon really is!

suggested vineyards to visit & wine tastings
We promised in the video to share some of the wine tastings we attended, and wished we had gone to. These were from locals and a bit of research on our part. Another great blog with further suggestions can be found here.
- Arcane Sellers (where we stayed with our Harvest Hosts Membership)
- Domaine Serene
- Domaine Drouhin
- Archery Summit
- White Rose
- Penner Ashe
We definitely suggest going to Wolves and People if you enjoy beer. There aren’t many traditional farmhouse breweries left in the United States, and Wolves and People are really doing it right. We loved everything we tried and just really loved the experience of meeting Christian, and of course seeing the Soul Boat art installation was such a treat!

If you’re full time RVing or just going on extended trips, having RV solar can be a game changer. In this video and post, Liz and Dennis show you how they install RV solar panels on their fifth wheel toy hauler. You can see their step by step process to having RV solar panels on their rig!
In this blog post and video we talk about extended RV warranties. We discuss why you would want one, what it typically covers, the cost upfront, and ultimately, if it’s worth it. If you’re not sure if you should buy an extended RV warranty or not, this post is for you!
