I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. My husband is an introvert who is perfectly happy staying home reading books […]

If you are driving from the Georgia state line all the way south to Key West, Florida is about 500 miles long. But east to west, at its widest point it’s only 160 miles. Yeah, it’s a narrow state. Which is good because we made the round-trip from coast-to-coast yesterday. When we first met, Miss […]

The other day I received an email from somebody who was telling me that they were totally unprepared for how much work is involved in the RV lifestyle. They weren’t talking about workamping or making a living on the road. Their revelation was about how much goes into traveling in an RV; packing the rig […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things.

Yesterday was another busy day for us, even though we were just hanging out at home. And when I say hanging, I mean that in more ways than one. I mentioned the other day that our friends Greg and Jan White are coming to visit, and somebody asked if they would be parking their motorhome […]

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. I’m 72 and wondering if it’s “too late” for me, as much as […]

I wasn’t surprised to find out that I had ruffled some feathers, or maybe fur, when I said in yesterday’s blog that we made the choice to find a new home for my protection trained German Shepherd when we hit the road because he would not have been a good fit for the RV lifestyle. […]

Because I get a lot of e-mails from blog readers asking about RV financing, I thought I’d brush off this blog from March, 2014 and run it again. I hear from people all the time who have a good credit rating, have found the perfect RV for their needs, and then run into trouble when […]

Yesterday blog reader Richard Sullivan wrote to tell me about an incident that happened while he was backing his motorhome into their site at an RV park. He said he was doing just fine with his wife guiding him as he backed up. Then two little boys came out of nowhere and ran directly behind […]

Ever since I first heard John Denver sing about West Virginia I always wanted to go there and see those beautiful mountains and green valleys he sang about. While I always enjoyed the man’s music, apparently the part of West Virginia that John Denver was familiar with wasn’t along US Highway 52. We’ve covered a […]
