Custer’s Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn

I had no idea what to expect when we planned this trip. Reading about historical battleground sites led me to believe we would walk up to a big open field and just stand there, staring out into the vast openness, feeling uninspired. For me, this place offered more. Observing history outside of a book is incredibly fascinating for me and I love sharing that excitement with my family.

The Battle of Little Bighorn took place in June of 1876 and was part of The Sioux War of 1876. During this two day battle, a force of 700 men lead by Lt. Col. George A.

RV Buying Process – Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?

RV buying process is very exhausting. Like a game of tug-of-war, there are two parties pulling back and forth on each other. One side is trying to save money and the other side is trying to make money and no body wants to give an inch for the fear of being taken.

We have narrowed down our search for our next trailer to an Open Range LT305BHS. We are going out on a limb with choosing a smaller manufacturer, but overall, this unit will fit our needs the best.

LT305BHS

We have been watching the market for this particular model since October 2013.  We have a couple of things going against us.  First, we are buying at the beginning of camping season.  Plus, the economy is not as bad as it was and people are beginning to loosen their belts, so to speak.
