One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question, because there is no one size fits all. Each of us has our own needs and priorities, and […]

Time To Walk Away

I don’t believe that every RV salesman is a liar and a cheat. But the sad fact is that a lot of them are; enough to cast a wide shadow that, unfortunately, sometimes touches the whole industry. I’ve worked in sales over the years, everything from advertising to automobiles, and was successful at all of […]

There always seems to be something going on here at the Pima County Fairgrounds, and staying here in their RV park we get a front row seat for much of the activity. Or inactivity, occasionally. This weekend alone there are three events going on – a horse show, a Spa and Patio show, and an […]

Yesterday was a day for bad roads and big waves. Lots of both. We left the Seaside RV Resort about 10:30, stopped for fuel, and then started south on U.S. Highway 101. It was 118 miles to the Elks lodge in Newport, but it was a slow 118 miles. Part of the way was along […]

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 […]

About 4 AM yesterday morning I woke up to the sound of strong wind flapping our slide-out toppers and window awnings and by about 7 our motorhome was rocking and rolling, but not in the fun kind of way. The wind blew hard all morning and I sure wouldn’t have wanted to be out on […]

Tom and Barbara Westerfield had been here at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park the last four nights, and yesterday morning it was time for them to head on down the road looking for new adventures. After they had pulled out of their site they stopped across from our rig to hook up their Jeep […]

A Move And A Leak

Yesterday morning we were up early and getting ready to hit the road. We had a short drive, less than 50 miles back to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground, but since the Thousand Trails is so busy this time of year, and there are so many people wanting to get into the few 50 amp […]

The other day, Phil May from TechnoRV sent me copy of his book From High-Tech To High Plains, in which he tells the story of how he and his wife Tracey left their high pressure lives and careers and became fulltime RVers, homeschooling their two children on the road, and operating a mobile business selling […]

I’ve been stumbling around this old world for quite a while now, and I’ve seen a thing or two. In  fact, I’ve seen some things you would never believe, and I thought it had gotten to the point that nothing would surprise me. How wrong I was! Our Ohio Gypsy Journal rally ended yesterday, and […]
