A lot of people in Florida are walking around with red, burning eyes, and I think the stock in the company that makes Kleenex has gone up dramatically. But it’s not hay fever or some other seasonal allergy, it’s because of smoke. There are currently more than 100 wildfires burning in the state, one just […]

For the last couple of days I have been involved in an email exchange with a couple who are brand-new fulltimers trying to adjust to life on the road. They are currently dry camping in the desert a couple of miles north of Quartzsite, Arizona and are freaking out about being in such a different […]

I figure by now you’re pretty sick of me telling you that I spent the day at my desk fighting our slow internet connection and working on getting the shopping carts working for our back issues. But that’s pretty much what I did, except for posting a new indie author interview with fulltime RVer Jaimie […]

I’ve had three e-mails in the last two days from RVers writing about campground problems that make me wonder how so many people never learned basic manners as children.

Sure, there are a lot of RVers here too, but holiday weekends really bring out the campers and weekend warriors. You can tell the difference between campers and RVers by just walking around […]

We have been having a lot of fun here in Muskegon, Michigan with Berni and Rocky Frees. It is amazing how we can be apart from those two for a year, and the minute we get back together, the fun picks back up right where we left off. Yesterday they both had to work, so […]

Hindsight is always 20/20, and more than once in my life, I’ve found myself repeating that old saying “I sure wish I knew then what I know now.” Looking back over my life, from today’s perspective, I can see a lot of things I would change, if I had it to do over.  For example, […]

I’ve had a few e-mails from readers who noted that we are currently staying at a Thousand Trails preserve and wanted to know if I felt that  Thousand Trails membership was a good investment. As I have said many times before, like anything, a campground membership can be a good investment if you use it […]

With summer in full swing, and gas prices way down from this time last year, a lot of RVs are on the go. We’re expecting a full house here at Elkhart Campground next weekend for the 4th of July holiday. As fulltimers, we learned early on that campgrounds fill up fast on holiday weekends during […]
