They say that timing is everything, and I think there’s a lot of truth to that. Did you ever stop to think about how things happen, or don’t happen, just because the timing is or isn’t right? What if you had left the house five minutes earlier? Would you have been in the middle of […]

After reading my blog about all the fun we are missing at the Escapees RV Club‘s Escapade rally, which is going on in Tucson this week, I got emails from two different people who told me they had heard a rumor that I had been fired from the Escapade staff and that we are no […]

It seems like you can’t go onto any RV internet forum without seeing discussion after discussion about which toilet paper to use in RVs and what kind of chemicals to use in RV holding tanks. These debates go on and on and you would think nothing is more important than your potty. What always surprises […]

After I mentioned camping opportunities at Elks and Moose lodges and VFW posts in yesterday’s blog, More Snowbird Options, I got quite a few emails from people asking more about joining the Elks and Moose, as well as the VFW. Here is a link to a blog post I wrote a while back about Camping […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

I get a lot of e-mails from readers asking for recommendations or advice about various RV products. Over the years many manufacturers have provided us with products to test. Some of them we have liked a lot and others we have passed on for something we consider to be better. So I thought today I […]

Being working RVers and with a daily blog that gets a high readership, being able to get online is very important to us. In fact, we have avoided going some places because we could not get a reliable signal. We don’t just surf the internet, it’s an important tool to get our jobs done. Over […]

As an author of mystery novels, I’m constantly seeing some crazy thing in the news and saying that if I included that in one of my books, nobody would believe it. After all, I get a lot of people saying that some of the questions I tell you about that I get from our readers […]

That’s what somebody told me just last week when he asked my advice about his motorhome’s eight year old tires and I advised him to replace them, even though they had a lot of tread left and looked good. “You may know a lot about fulltime RVing, but you don’t know everything, Nick. These tires […]
