Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

We were up about 7:30 yesterday, which is only about three hours earlier than usual for us, and after checking e-mail and relying to the most urgent, we started getting ready to leave the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park. But since we only had 116 miles to go, we were in no hurry. It was […]

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]

After fulltiming for fourteen years now, you’d think that we’d have this thing down to a science by now. But for whatever reason, after we have been sitting still for a while, Terry and I never sleep well the night before setting out on a trip. It’s not nerves, we love traveling in our RV […]
