Wandergus

About We will not start a blog...we will not start a blog...oh well here goes. We are Tony, Katie, and Gus and we decided to buy a motorhome, rent our house in upstate NY, and hit the road living out of it full-time. Katie works as a physical therapist and will be taking travel contracts along the way. Tony stepped away from his bartending job in Ithaca, NY and will search for gigs here and there while on the road.

This website was created at the behest of family and friends who wanted a way to keep up to speed on our travels, whereabouts, and most importantly how our pug/chihuahua (chug) mix, Gus, is faring. Hence, Wandergus was born! Our hopes with this site is to force ourselves to document this once in a lifetime journey, stay connected with family and friends, and hopefully provide some insight into travel physical therapy and the RV lifestyle for those that wish to follow (learn from our mistakes I’m sure they will be plentiful).

Battling wind and overheating in El Paso

As we unplugged the RV and prepped for departure, we noticed some unusually high winds in the area. The forecast told us that we were issued a wind advisory, with gusts up to 60 mph. We had two days to go about 600 miles to hit our reservation in Phoenix, so we decided to head out, go slow, and pull over if necessary. We began the slow crawl southwest towards El Paso. New to driving a high profile vehicle, we didn't go over 40 mph for the next couple hours as we got shoved around the road. With … [Read More...]

Carlsbad RV Park and Campground

  Aside from primitive camping in White City, this is the closest campground to the National Parks, which is why we chose to stay here. Located right off of National Parks Highway it is very easy to access and a straight shot to enjoy the parks. The park is relatively cheap at 37$/night for full hookups. The Park offers a lot of amenities, some of which include: indoor heated pool, arcade and game room, on site store, playground, horseshoe pits, exercise room, couple dog parks, … [Read More...]
