I’m surprised at how many people I hear complaining that Hurricane (now tropical storm) Hermine has disrupted their Labor Day weekend plans. I don’t mean the “Darn, that sucks” kind of complaining, but rather those that are upset because campgrounds and RV parks where they had reservations are closed due to damage or a lack […]

I guess because they don’t have enough to worry about with things like wars and natural disasters and politics, people are involved in a big debate going on online about the future availability of campgrounds and how hard it is becoming to find a last-minute campsite in many areas. Some blame long-term seasonal campers, others […]

There are a lot of things in the RV lifestyle you should know, from how to get your mail forwarded to which are the best states to choose for your legal domicile, to what kinds of (choose one – fire extinguisher, insurance company, tire pressure monitoring system, toilet paper, etc. you should choose). I have […]

Frugal Or Cheap?

I got an e-mail yesterday from a reader who asked why anyone would consider spending a night at a WalMart, truck stop, or highway rest area when there are so many campgrounds around the country. She asked if the RVers who do this are all cheapskates, or it there is ever a legitimate reason to […]

 We’ve been in a lot of campgrounds that have different kinds of entertainment over the years, including everything from bingo, to jam sessions, to movie nights. But my buddy Gary Greene, the manager of the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, goes the extra mile and provides alligator wrestling! After a day out exploring with our friends Charles […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

We’ve known many fulltime RVers who work or run small businesses on the road, others who workamp at RV parks, and plenty who keep busy exploring new territory, visiting with friends, following their hobbies, or just relaxing under the awning with a cold drink. We also know many fulltimers and snowbirds who don’t need the […]

Why?

I heard from somebody yesterday who was headed south in the middle of the bad storms that are chewing up the Carolinas. He said it was raining so hard that he could not see his friend’s motorhome, less than 100 feet ahead of him, but they were making good time in spite of the downpour. […]

Getting packages delivered can sometimes be a hassle for fulltime RVers. Some campgrounds will allow you to have things sent to them and others will not. When that happens you have to have it sent General Delivery to the local post office, or else to a local company that accepts packages for travelers. Some of […]

Terry still wasn’t feeling back to normal yesterday, so instead of flying kites again we ran a few errands in town, stopped at the farmers market, and then came home. So for today’s blog, I thought I would share some of the questions I have received lately and my answers. Q. Do you guys ever […]
