I’ve been a huge fan of quad biking (ATVs) for a long time, going on ATV tours all around the world. While living in Iowa, we bought our own ATV so we could go trail riding! OHV parks tend to be free to visit and are under the control of the DNR. In these locations you’ll need a state registration sticker on the ATV, your vehicle must meet a couple of requirements (for example, have a width of less than 65 inches) and you have to wear a helmet. On private property, there aren’t quite as many rules but you’ll usually have to pay to ride on their trails. I prefer to trail ride, rather than going to a park. With trail riding you can follow a route or track through the woods and just enjoy driving around. Some of the OHV parks tend to be taken up mainly with terrain parks that are aimed more at dirt bikes. Here are some of the ATV parks in Iowa that we’ve been to!Continue reading “OHV Parks and ATV Trails In Iowa USA”

Now my regular readers will know that I’m not a fan of winter or being cold. So of course I’m more likely to be attracted to a ski resort when ironically there’s no snow. These little mountain towns do summer activities SO WELL. Just take Mayrhofen, Austria in Summer…AMAZING! Canada is no different, Whistler is full of awesome summer activities. I share some of my favourite activities in this things to do in Whistler summer guide!
I’m always under the impression that if I lived in a place that had a nice beach/waterfront boardwalk, I’d be the type of person that’d go running in the morning or evening, it always looks so relaxing. Currently I live on the edge of town, with fields, a river and a lovely new cycle path, but do I run along it? No, not anymore, because you just used to end up being chased by dogs. So it seems that when I travel, I actually exercise more than what I do when I’m at home. Here are 5 fun ways to stay active while on the road!
