Posted a quick review of one of our favorite RV trip planning apps, along with things I do and don't like about the way it works. Love it? Hate it? Let me know. :)
 
A quick review of RV Trip Wizard, one of the tools I talk about in my Road Trip Planning App Guide at: http://thelearningbanks.com/ultimate-road-trip-planning-app-guide/

Do you use RV Trip Wizard? If not, what other apps have you used to help plan your road trips?

Facebook tried, but my FB "year in review" was "meh" at best. This one, on the other hand, actually captures several of my favorite moments throughout the year. Well done, Google, well done. cc / +beth banks

Five stars because they're awesome to RVers and allow free boondocking for 48 hours, minus one because they appear to be understocked and/or out of stock on certain RV essentials (toilet paper, etc) requiring us to have to make a Walmart trip (boo).

Second time we went, food was ok, they cooked 12lbs of our fish for 8 people after we asked them to cook only 6 (and they claim that they won't cook more than a pound per person even if asked). First time, we showed up at 10p (they close at 11) with a party of 8 (which they said they could accommodate) and were told that they don't seat after 930 and that they "told us that on the phone" (which they didn't). Wasn't terrible, but wouldn't return.

Incredibly nice owners near some incredibly good fishing, but the park is a bit lackluster and offers few amenities, plus they charge you for showers even if you pay for a full hookup spot.
