Dinosaur’s 100th Anniversary

4-24-2015-Dinosaur100th

Dinosaur National Monument is having a birthday, and there’s no better place to be this spring and summer. From April through October, the national monument, which spreads through Colorado and Utah, will be hosting an array of special events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their opening in 1915. Fire up your RV and cruise to “Dinosaur” this year for an exciting trip back through time.

About Dinosaur National Monument

Dinosaur National Monument was protected on Oct. 4, 1915, for its, “extraordinary deposit of Dinosaurian and other gigantic reptilian remains of the Jurassic period.” The initial 80 acres that were preserved in 1915 later became 210,000 acres in 1938. The national monument now spans the Utah-Colorado border.

Tons of Anniversary Events

Dinosaur National Monument’s 100th anniversary party will include tons of events inside and outside of the park grounds. The celebration kicked off at the beginning of National Park Week and will continue through the month of October.

Every month is packed with events like bird walks, endangered species talks, Paddlefest at Red Fleet State Park, the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo, open houses, special exhibits, fee-free days and tons more. The entire list of events, activities and festivals can be found on the Dinosaur National Monument website.

Visiting Dinosaur National Monument

There’s no better time to visit Dinosaur National Monument than now. The park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the off-season and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., during the busy summer months (from May 22 to Sept. 13). The entrance fee for a private vehicle is $10 and admission is $5 for those who enter on foot or bike. Visitors can enter from Colorado or Utah, but there are no dinosaur fossils in the Colorado area of the monument.

Staying Green in Your RV

4-22-2015-GreenInYourRV

Earth Day is a yearly reminder of how much we need to give back to the environment that gives so much to us. As RV travelers, we already live a relatively green lifestyle, but there are many ways you can make your RV travels even more environmentally friendly. The following are a few simple steps you can take to leave a smaller carbon footprint on your adventures.

Resist Plugging In

Sometimes connecting to electricity at the campsite is necessary, but heading to campsites without hookups is an easy way to force yourself to live minimally. Try to camp for as long as possible without filling your water tanks or using your generator. It’s a great way to conserve water and energy and enjoy more time in the great outdoors.

Establish a Recycling System

You’re probably used to doing some sort of recycling during your RV travels, but it can be easy to limit your recycling because of the small amount of storage space in your home away from home. Make recycling a habit by establishing one of your storage spaces as a permanent recycling center. Use separate bins for paper, cardboard, cans and plastic, and drop them off at recycling centers along your travels. Break down cardboard boxes and crush cans to give yourself more space.

Shop Locally

Steering clear of big box stores and shopping at local farmer’s markets along your travels can make a huge difference in the communities and environments you visit. Buying local, natural and organic foods not only helps the local farmers, but it also supports those who don’t use harmful chemicals in their growing processes. And you get to taste unique and delicious local foods on top of it all.

Start Your Journey at Madison RV

Here at Madison RV Supercenter, we’re ready to help you start your green RV lifestyle. We offer a huge selection of motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels as well as an array of non-toxic and eco-friendly RV products. Stop in and see us Madison, Ala., six days a week.

If you haven’t fired up your RV for the first adventure of the season yet, now is the time to do it.

Cruise to your favorite national park between April 18 and 26 for a week filled with outdoor adventure and natural wonders.

A Fee-Free Weekend

The only thing better than visiting a national park is visiting one for free. The weekend of April 18 and 19 will be fee-free park days, which means a number of national parks offer free admission to visitors. Free admission includes all individual entrance fees, transportation entrance fees and commercial tour fees, so everyone has a chance to experience the wonders of America’s national parks.

Junior Ranger Day

Junior Ranger Day is a part of National Park Week dedicated to helping kids learn about the National Parks System and the importance of protecting our country’s natural wonders. Parks invite all young visitors to attend Junior Ranger Day on April 18, where they’ll be sworn in as Junior Rangers and enjoy an array of family-friendly activities.

Earth Day and National Park Week

Earth Day (April 22) falls in the middle of National Park Week, and that means you can help with a number of projects at your favorite national park. Log onto the National Park Service website to see a list of parks with Earth Day projects you can join. The site also offers a number of other ways you can get involved and help preserve these special places.

Start Your Week at Madison RV

There’s no better way to visit our country’s national parks than in the comfort of your recreational vehicle. Stop in and see us at the Madison RV Supercenter to find the motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel of your dreams.

There’s only one way to get the full Nascar race experience, and that’s by traveling to the event in your RV. Many speedways offer specific camping areas for travelers with recreational vehicles, so you have a comfortable, convenient and exciting place to stay right near the track.

Camping at Talladega Superspeedway

Tickets are now available for the Geico 500 at the Talladega Superspeedway right here in Alabama. Campers can choose to stay at a number of reserved parks on Talladega Superspeedway property. Some campgrounds are reserved for motorhomes and pull-behind campers, while others accommodate tents as well. Talladega also offers infield camping, which runs at a much higher price but is worth it for fans who want to be right on top of the action. And for those on a tighter budget, free camping is available at three of the property’s parks.

Camping at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Follow your RV trip to Talladega with a camping excursion to the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The speedway prides itself on offering a camping experience that is nearly as exciting as the races. With over 10 total camping lots and five with electrical hookups for RVs, you can be picky when choosing where you want to stay at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Camping at Other Events

Nascar is known for offering some of the most exciting camping, tailgating and partying options in sports. Most racetracks offer pricy infield camping spaces as well as acres of affordable campgrounds outside of the track. While some Nascar campgrounds can get loud with partying campers, many of them stay mellow with nightly quiet times. Be sure to ask the speedway you’ll be attending about which campsite is best for your needs.

Stop and See Us

Whether you’ll be traveling to Talladega, Indianapolis, Charlotte or any other of our country’s great speedways this spring, be sure to stop in and see us at Madison RV before you go. We’re your one-stop Alabama RV shop with everything from new and used RVs to accessories and camping supplies.
