Kim Gregory, our VP of Sales, has been a faithful member of the Coach-Net family for 13 years. She, her husband, Jake, and their 5 children – yes, 5 – love to go camping. They recently took Coach-Net’s Entegra out west on their latest vacation. Want to hear about traveling with a set of toddler triplets? Read on!
Where did you go?
We spent 3 weeks traveling out west of Texas. We started in Santa Fe, New Mexico, then drove around the backend of the Grand Canyon to get to Zion National Park. Zion is my absolute favorite place to go. We stayed in Southern Utah for a week exploring Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Snow Canyon.
We did lots of hiking and exploring. Then we headed to Lake Havasu for a quick family visit. On the way, we drove through the Mead recreation area and stopped to explore and have lunch. Our final stop and my new favorite place was Tucson. We stayed at Cataline State Park where we hiked, horseback rode and watched the prairie dogs.
How long was your trip?/Was this your 1st time RVing?
We were on the road for 3 weeks in total. No, we have taken 3 other road trip prior to this one and have loved every one of them!
What’s the fondest memory of your trip?
My favorite part of the trip was watching my 5 kids disconnect from their electronics, explore together, laugh together, and try new things. It’s so fun to watch because everything is so new and exciting for them.
Did you find anything challenging about your RV trip?
Yes, we had some issues with the generator overheating and turning off. This means no AC in the back of the RV with 100+ temps outside. It was definitely hot, but we still made it fun.
Would you go again?
I would absolutely go again. I love RVing! I would go all the time if my family’s schedules would allow it.
Where would you like to go next?
I’d love to go to Idaho. It has such beautiful country that I have yet to explore. We want to go all the way to Coeur d’ Alene where we can hike, white water raft, zipline, kayak, and see the hot springs. That trip will also include visiting Shoshone Falls, Thousand Springs State Park, and Sun Valley.
Why do you love RVing?
There is nothing better than spending time outdoors with my family. I also love the spontaneity of it. You can go anywhere, change your plans, stay longer, or leave sooner. The trip is totally under your control. It’s the best part of RVing.
