Note: The blog is based upon the seminar by the same name that I present at RV rallies around the country. Why do you RV? To visit friends and family in far off places? To have your own mobile lodging when you visit theme parks or natural attractions? To have a way to escape cold […]

Combining outdoor activity, the kind of technical toys that all guys love, low entry costs, exercise, and opportunities all over the country, geocaching may very well be the perfect hobby/sport for RVers. Geocaching (pronounced gee-oh-cash-ing) is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the world and is suited for both the young and the old. […]

Terry and I are history buffs and we always enjoy exploring small town museums. We’ve seen some interesting ones in our travels from coast to coast, and yesterday we visited one of the best local history museums we’ve seen anywhere The La Porte County Historical Society Museum in La Porte, Indiana has three floors of […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

New and wannabe fulltimers sometimes worry that they will be all alone out here on the road, surrounded by strangers. And then they are surprised at how many friends they quickly make and how often they run into them over and over again all over the country. We’ve had several friends visit us since we’ve […]

Yesterday we drove back across the bridge to Astoria, Oregon again, and that darned bridge just doesn’t get any smaller! You’d think I would have been over it enough not to let it bother me any more, but then again, I think anybody as charming and intelligent as myself should be filthy rich. And we’d […]
