One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

In our first year on the road, we made a pilgrimage to Slab City in Niland, California. If you’re not familiar with this outpost of individuality, Slab City is located on the site of an abandoned World War II Marine training base. It is home to a motley collection of people that most would call […]

Yesterday was the last day of vending at the Tucson Escapade, as well as the last day of my seminars. It’s all over for another year, and as much fun as we have had, and as much as we enjoyed seeing so many of our old friends and making new ones, I don’t think either […]

I got an e-mail the other day from a blog reader asking me if I was worried about crime problems when we were camping at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas, and then Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission, since both places were so close to the Mexican border. Actually, Columbus is […]

In a blog about being two-gether that I wrote few months ago, I said that communication and compromise are necessary to work out problems in any relationship, and especially for an RVing couple. I think that many times problems arise because someone doesn’t understand what their partner needs or wants, and this may be because […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we needed to find a shop to look at the front end of our Explorer. The front tires were wearing on the inside and we’ve had a vibration and occasional clunking noise. I got on the Thousand Trails Facebook group and asked if anybody here could recommend a shop […]

It’s no secret that I love books, both reading and writing them. Even with the wealth of knowledge available on the internet, there are still a lot of great RVing books that should be on your bookshelf, or in Kindle. And even with a gazillion apps for RVers, there are times when you can’t get […]

Happy Fathers Day to all of the dad’s out there. Be sure to call your father and tell him you love him. My own dad has been gone for over twenty-five years and I sure do miss him. He was always my biggest fan and he always encouraged me to follow my dreams. He gave […]

My cousin Beverly called the other day to tell us it was 108 degrees in Tucson. There’s a reason I stay out of Arizona in the summer. Although I’ve seen some days here in northern Indiana when it felt just as hot. Of course, fans of the desert will tell you that while it does […]
