Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

There Is No Number

One of the most frequent questions I get from new and wannabe fulltime RVers is, how much does it cost to be a fulltimer? I can’t answer that question for them because there is no number that is accurate. No one-size-fits-all, plan your budget this way and you’ll be fine number. How much does it […]

Get Off The Road!

It looks like we’re in for some more bad weather this weekend, with the possibility of severe storms and very strong winds on Sunday. No problem, we don’t have anywhere we have to be. The larder is stocked, I’ve got a book almost finished that Miss Terry can proof and edit, and she’s got lots […]

LLCs, KU, And FB

After reading yesterday’s blog, a regular reader posted a couple comments suggesting that people form an LLC and avoid all the registration hassles from their state. For those who haven’t heard the term before, an LLC is a limited liability corporation. Many people form them in Montana, which welcomes out-of-state residents to do so. To […]

Don’t Do It!

Every so often I hear from RVers who are not fulltimers wanting to know about establishing an address with a mail forwarding service and then buying an RV out-of-state and registering it in one of the more RV friendly states like Texas, South Dakota, or Florida. Some of them plan to leave their homes and […]

Kayaks And RVing

For active RVers who enjoy nature and a little bit of adventure, kayaking is one of the best activities you can consider. Paddling is great exercise and we have done it everywhere from the Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Keys to Midwest lakes and rivers. And once you purchase your kayak and equipment, it’s not […]

Bigfoot And UFOs

I get a lot of email every day, and a lot of those emails are from people who have questions about the RV lifestyle. What kind of RV should I buy? Is gas or diesel better in a motorhome? How do I get mail? What state should I choose for my legal domicile? I get […]

With winter behind us and summer coming, a lot of fulltime RVers who have been sitting still for much of the winter are hitting the road and weekend warriors are getting their RVs ready for vacations and summer camping trips. RVs are complex machines, and while I am far from a technical person, even I […]

In a blog post a while back, I said I was looking for an old floor model console radio to put in my office. When I was a kid I loved those old radios and when I was in high school, old console and table model radios were everywhere and you could pick them up […]

A Great Little Find

As I said in yesterday’s blog, using the self-drilling screws to attach the furring strips in our garage wasn’t working out, and I planned to get some carbide tipped drill bits to make drilling pilot holes easier. We have a great little family owned business just a mile or so from us called Anchor Hardware, […]
