Food On The Move

Mobile Benefits for SUV Same-Sex Travelers

We’ve written before about the travel luxury of SUVpacking. We can pretty much go anywhere quickly, without all the sweatiness of hiking or biking, and definitely without the rules and restrictions of the RV set.

Drive-By Forgotten California

They wouldn’t like it. I know the town we left in Northern California wouldn’t either, but the fact of the matter is that America’s mobile society is leaving a lot of places out. Or at least it was until SUVpacking started to take hold. It’s so easy to do stop-by or drive-thru visits to the…
