The best part of last month’s overnight camping trip? Watching Andie look out the various windows all day, and seeing her little wispy ears flop as her head swiveled to glimpse everything happening outside. @ThorIndustries #ThorPartner #WindowToTheWorld That, and eating fresh oysters at Hama Hama Oyster Farm. Man oh man, did I need to get out of the house and change the scenery after too many days in the Design Cave. We loaded up “The Dutchess” and headed out to the Olympic Peninsula for a little adventuring and exploring. Camping in the Pacific Northwest during the winter is not ideal, because hello, rain. All day. Every day. But as it turns out, it’s still fun and quite lovely. We played games, we slept in and we made healthy stovetop meals despite really craving camp junk food. We relaxed, right in the middle of the week. Can you believe? Tell me: what’s your go-to for a quick reset?

Why do you like it here?

I love that it’s close to home and easily accessible for a quick overnight trip, and it’s right on the water, so the view is unreal.

Who’s your favorite travel buddy?

Our puppy, Andie. She loves to camp, but mostly she loves being on the road and looking out the windows.

How do you decide where to go next?

While we have our favorite go-to spots, we really love discovering new places. So if it’s not an annual trip, we’ll just pick up and go and see what we find along the way. Or if we’re hoping to visit friends or family, that will dictate where we go next. We’re planning a six to eight week trip down to California to visit family and friends, to attend a conference and to meet with some of my clients. It’s pretty great to be able to make my office mobile.

What’s one piece of advice you have for RVers?

Don’t be intimidated. Be smart, safe and courteous; do a little research and then just go for it. You’ll learn along the way. Don’t be afraid to ask for some help. Other RVers have been there before, and are willing to lend a helping hand and offer their best pro-tips.

Who do you wish you could share this view with?

I’m dying to have my family drive their rigs up here and join us. My mom would love this view and my brother-in-law would love fishing for fresh oysters, just steps from their RV’s door.
