There are so many great RV blogs out there that it is hard to keep up with them all. And every week, somebody turns me on to yet another blog I never knew about.
I enjoy reading RV blogs for several reasons. They help me keep up with my friends, they take me to new places we’ve never explored before, they give me a new perspective on the RV lifestyle, and they are just plain fun! Here are 15 blogs you may not be aware of, but should be reading.
Hit The Road Jack – Jerry and Kimberly Peterson are working RVers who share their adventures as they work a Christmas tree lot, sell pumpkins, work at trade shows, and explore this great land of ours.
The Sandcastle – My friend Linda Sand and her husband Dave travel fulltime in a Winnebago Journey, and Linda writes about the joys and occasional frustrations of life on the road.
Travel By Chance – Dan and Patty Chance are adventure loving RVers who write about everything from driving tour buses in Alaska, to working in Glacier National Park, to roaming the highways and back roads of America. As much as I enjoy the stories of their travels, I also like Dan’s occasional down to earth tales of his days as a California Highway Patrol officer.
Dennis & Carol’s RV Adventures – Our friends Dennis and Carol Hill are the owners of the RV Driving School and veteran fulltimers. Dennis is also an excellent photographer. Follow their adventures this summer as they travel to Alaska with a few friends in an informal caravan.
Travels With Emma – This neat blog is written by a solo fulltimer named Judy Bell, who travels the country with her dog Emma. Her prose is enjoyable, and her photographs of everything from birds to cows, and anything else that walks, flies, or crawls, are outstanding.
Blue Road Blogger – Tim and Mary Johnson are schoolteachers who are in the process of making the transition to living on the road fulltime, with a target date of June 15, 2013. Their blog covers the steps they are making to move from their old lifestyle into their new one as fulltime nomads.
FabGrandma – This is one of Miss Terry’s favorite blogs. Karen (FabGrandma) writes about everything from working on the road, to craft projects, to gluten free cooking on the road.
Travel With The Bayfield Bunch – Al and Kelly Bossence are Canadian RVers who include lots of excellent photos to illustrate the stories of their travels.
RVing Beach Bums – Joe and Nancy Carrier publish a relatively new blog, but I am impressed with the writing and the many excellent photographs they include with every post.
Chappy Trails – Jim and Bobbie Chapman are having a wonderful time exploring America and sharing their adventures in their blog. Check out this fun couple’s blog and ride along for a while.
Rick & Paulette’s RV Travels – This Canadian couple’s blog includes everything from great travel stories and photography, to technical posts, and a lot more.
A Camp Host’s Meandering – Levonne Gaddy is an active blogger, excellent photographer, and camp host, whose ultimate goal is to be a “gloriously financially successful writer and photographer.”
RV Tire Safety – My friend Roger Marble’s new blog on RV tire safety is a bit technical at times, as the topic demands, but it is also a must read for anyone who wants to better understand their RV’s tires, learn how to properly care for them, and how to get the most out of them.
Where’s Eldo? – Jeannie Sparks is a recent convert to the fulltime RV lifestyle, who travels with her special guy Eldo Tompkins in a Tiffin motorhome, vends at RV rallies, and enjoys every minute of every day on the road.
RV-ing in the Kram-a-lot-Inn – Jesse and Ginger Haman are fulltime RVers who blog about their travels, workamping, and their life on the road.
It was hard to come up with just 15 RV blogs, because there are so many fine ones to choose from. But I hope this gives you a cross section of some of the blogs and bloggers out there, just waiting to share their adventures with you.
Thought For The Day – I have too much of my own emotional baggage. I can’t carry yours too.
