I wanted to give you an update on our erosion control project. In a blog a few days ago I said that we tried sinking the first two 5-foot lengths of PVC pipe into the ground and got them down a foot or so and ran into rock or something and couldn’t pound them in […]

A Great Unplanned Day

We were supposed to get a lot of rain yesterday and since we have been busy for several days in a row, Terry and I decided to just have a laid-back stay-at-home do-nothing day. That was the plan. But you know what they always say – if you want to hear God laugh, just make […]

Making Room

Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe that two people who lived in a 320 square foot motorhome for so many years have been able to fill up this huge house and garage so quickly. Yet somehow, we’ve managed to do it. When I first saw our 1100 square foot garage I thought it was […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

City Of Murals

It didn’t take long after we became fulltime RVers to realize that the best parts of America are on the two-lane back roads, away from the interstate highways. This is where you will find small town America, a world away from the generic shopping malls, big box stores, and chain restaurants of the big cities […]

Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from January, 2014 and is based on the seminar by the same name that I have presented at RV rallies coast to coast.  We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I reached the point where we preferred the comforts of […]

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 […]
