Gear and clothing
All of our gear reviews are of gear we have used in our travels. You might find the occasional link to something one of us wants to use in the future, but for the most part, we have paid our hard-earned money to buy the gear and use it ourselves.
If, in the future, companies want us to try gear in our travels, we will note that in our reviews.
Note, when we link to places you can buy our stuff, we are using special codes which earn us commissions in the sales. That’s so we can pay for the site and keep traveling. We really appreciate when you click on those links, because while it doesn’t cost you anything you wouldn’t already be spending, it helps us a little bit and every little bit counts.
Places we stay and eat
After much thought, we have decided to not host in-depth negative reviews of the places we stay or the restaurants we dine at on Our Wander-Filled Life.
We will keep on mentioning and linking places we like and restaurants we enjoyed. Occasionally, when it is an experience, we might do an entire blog post about it. But we want to keep it positive and we can’t do that all the time and be honest.
We do, however, feel it is valuable to continue reviewing all of the places we visit, good and bad, and to share those with appropriate communities.
In the past, we have relied on Trip Advisor and contributed many reviews of the places we have stayed on that site.
Since we started RVing, we have used RV Park Reviews to find and review campgrounds.
We will continue to use those sites, where our reviews, both good and bad, are balanced by the opinions of many others (as opposed to doing an in-depth review here) and continue to benefit travelers as a whole.
