Neat freaks and healthy eaters will fit right in at Don Aslett's Museum of Clean in Pocatello, Idaho. According to the website, this isn't just a collection of vintage vacuums and brooms - it's a concept. Paintings, statues and, of course, cleaning supplies abound. The idea of clean eating, clean thinking and overall cleanliness will take your breath away from the moment you walk into the massive space. Where to stay: There are many campgrounds in the Pocatello area. Located near Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, there are many choices for cozying up to Mother Nature. While many of the campgrounds in the area are quite rustic, they also feature amenities such as paved sites, full hook-ups, WiFi and restrooms and showers. If you’re shopping for a Class C to take to the national parks this summer, consider the turbo diesel, Omni™ Super C.

Channel your inner peace at Medicine Rocks State Park in Ekalaka, Montana. This beautiful ancient site dotted with unusual perforated sandstone pillars was considered sacred by American Indian tribes. It’s not hard to see why Native American tribes considered the ancient sandstone pillars of southeastern Montana sacred. The remote landscape is both peaceful and beautiful, covered with strange geological rock formations. In the 1800s, Sioux and Northern Cheyenne camped near these unique perforated rocks, which are filled with holes and tunnels that were crafted by rainfall and wind over 61 million years. Located within Medicine Rocks State Park and National Forest, you could choose to dry camp here – or boondock. Boondocking or dry camping is camping off the grid, usually outside of a campground and without electrical and water hook-ups. The Tellaro™ Class B motorhome is a good option if you plan to camp this way. It’s as easy to drive as any SUV or minivan but with the bonus of livability. If you’re intimidated to drive a Class A or wish to live more simply, you may be a good fit for a Class B.
