Day 16: Crushing Grapes and Taking Names

Day 16: Crushing Grapes and Taking Names

Day 16 of the Nowhere To Be Project provided me with a thrilling new discovery, Harvest Hosts. It all started a few weeks ago when my husband bought a brand new class C Winnebago Navion RV. This purchase was pretty much unplanned as we were just beginning to consider another RV. We got super lucky though because my brother (Jeff Dance) works for La Mesa RV in Daytona Beach, Florida and was able to procure us a stop-in-your-tracks great deal. It was much too good to pass up, so here we are as RV owners again. As a result, I’ve been busy planning months and months on the road. This led me to Harvest Hosts.

Harvest Hosts is a vast network of small vineyards, orchards and farms across North America that allow overnight RV camping on their property. The cost is completely free. This, in and of itself, is captivating as most RV parks run between $40 and $120 per night. Even better though, these vineyards and farms allow active participants!!! I will be eagerly crushing and picking with the best of them, I’m sure. As a huge bonus, most of the locations have shops that offer their homemade delights for sale! I mean, what could be better than a glass of local wine with freshly picked produce and a side of artisan crafted breads and jams?

As a wine-lover, I have always longed to learn more about the wine-making process. I’ve even teased my husband about buying a vineyard someday. Needless to say, I am going to hopscotch my way around Canada and the United States hitting as many Harvest Hosts locales as I can, from Montreal to Mackinac Island to Malibu, and everywhere in between, crushing grapes and taking names.
