Something I learned early in my Army days was that you can plan an operation down to the last detail and spend weeks talking strategy, but it can all go out the window the minute you put boots on the ground. That’s why you should always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. If you don’t do anything else today, be sure to tell your mom you love her. Mine has been gone a very long time and I wish she were still here so I could say those words to her. Here is a picture of Terry’s mom, […]

A topic that often comes up in the seminars I present on fulltiming at RV rallies and other events is making friends on the road. More than one new or wannabe RVer has told me that they wonder if they will have anybody to talk to when they are surrounded by strangers. I am always […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Terry and I started fulltiming in our mid-40s, a couple of people who are in that age range now wrote to ask me how we could afford to do that. They wanted to know if we sold a business or got rich in the stock market or something […]

I loved history even back when I was a young boy in school, and I was always asking questions. So many questions that I think I frustrated my teachers sometimes. I remember once when I asked two or three questions about whatever the lesson was that day, my teacher told me that I had a […]

I got an email yesterday from a blog reader asking me if I had read an article on the RVtravel.com website saying that due to the dramatic increase in the number of RVers on the road these days, the spontaneous road trip is pretty much a thing of the past. The article showed pictures used […]
