Staying fit and healthy on the road isn’t a difficult task if you’re willing to fit in a simple exercise routine into your travels. Try this easy, no extra equipment needed regiment before you set out in the morning or after you setup camp. Better yet, try it in the passenger seat if you’re not driving. That’s right – it’s so simple, you don’t even have to leave your seat!

Heel Pushes

Place your heels and calves against your seat. Push backwards against it to contract your muscles like a hamstring curl. Repeat 10 times very slowly.

Ab Tucks

Sit tall and exhale. Draw your belly button back to your spine while slightly rounding your spine like a cat position in yoga. Inhale and slightly arch your back like the cow position in yoga. Do this 10 times slowly.

Seated Twist

Sit up straight and cross your left leg over your right. Take your right hand and grab the left knee. Pull it to the right as you slightly and very gently twist to the left and look over your left shoulder. Do this in 10 slow reps before switching to the other side and doing 10 more.

Back Touches

Sit straight and forward so that your back is not resting against the seat. Reach your right arm up as high as possible and then bring it down to touch your back as low down as you can reach. Do this 10 times per side slowly.

This simple routine will help keep you flexible and limber while you travel. In conjunction with the hiking and other outdoor activities you engage in, you’ll notice that you have more energy and will feel better throughout the day. Stop by Woody’s RV World before you set out to make sure that your RV is in good shape before your next road trip.

In a historic first for Canada, Woody’s RV World founder, Woody Paylor, has the honor of being the first Canadian ever to be inducted into the RV/MH Heritage Foundation Hall of Fame.

This honor was bestowed due to Woody Paylor’s outstanding contributions to the RV dealership industry. Only five people from the RV industry are selected each year to be inducted.

Mr. Paylor, who is now retired, will be part of RV/MH Heritage Foundation’s Class of 2017, which had to be narrowed down from over 60 highly deserving candidates. Even with such a competitive field, Mr. Paylor was able to earn a place in the top five.

Nominees can be pulled from any field in the RV industry, from manufacturers, dealers, suppliers, community managers and developers, and even association executives.

The Class of 2017 inductees will be honored at the Annual Induction Dinner on Monday, August 7, 2017 in Elkhart, Indiana.

A Romantic Valentine’s Day Recipe for Your RV

Posted by | RV Cooking

Pappardelle pasta with shrimp, tomatoes and herbs

Traveling in your RV for Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to eat dinner at a pricey restaurant. In fact, you can cook a high-end, restaurant-quality meal easily in the comfort of your RV. This seafood and pasta recipe with a cherry tomato fra diavolo sauce will make you and your lover feel like you’re dining at a costly restaurant without the price or stuffy atmosphere.

Seafood and Pasta with Cherry Tomato Fra Diavolo Sauce

What you’ll need:

Pasta:

  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds mixed seafood (lobster, shrimp, crab meat, white fish)
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Fresno chile peppers (thinly sliced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 small red onion (finely chopped)
  • Salt
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Cooking instructions:

  1. To create the sauce, heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Stir in the chiles, garlic and onions. Stir for 5 minutes. Season the sauce with salt and pour in the sherry. Continue cooking until the sauce has reduced by half.
  2. Stir tomatoes and oregano into the sauce, then cover until tomatoes burst open (10-15 minutes). Stir in the parsley and basil, then remove from heat.
  3. To cook the pasta, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Pat the seafood dry then sprinkle it with Old Bay, salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat, then cook the seafood in the oil until heated through.
  5. Use the vermouth to deglaze the pan and scrape the brown pieces from the bottom.
  6. Cook the pasta to al dente and drain. Toss the sauce with the pasta and fold in the seafood.
  7. Serve with your favorite green salad and fresh bread.
