That fat old guy sitting under the awning of the RV parked next to you drinking his iced tea and watching the world go by was once a skinny infantryman wading through the rice paddies of Vietnam, and he was the biggest bad ass you will ever meet. He left home a boy, spent a […]

Why Is It So High?

Over the years we have been in a lot of RVs. Everything from small Class C motorhomes to huge fifth wheel trailers and mega coaches with four slides. A lot of them are sold on the “Wow” factor. You know what that is, right? A customer walks in, sees the pretty carpeting and all of […]

The Escapees RV Club‘s 56th Escapade rally will be held July 24- 29 in Essex Junction, Vermont, and like all Escapees events, it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m not sure of the exact schedule yet, but I’ll be presenting several seminars at the rally and they will have a full lineup of […]

I guess yesterday was my lucky day. I started out with several very nice reviews for Big Lake and for Big Lake Burning, the first and latest books in my Big Lake mystery series. Reviews are very important to authors in terms of marketing our books, and positive reviews are especially nice both for sales […]

There was a thread on one of the Facebook RV pages yesterday asking what fulltimers carry in their tow cars or the back of the trucks they pull their trailers with. Some of the responses were interesting, ranging from absolutely nothing to everything but the kitchen sink. Most fulltimers we know who drive motorhomes use […]

Goodbye Celina

We had planned to leave the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio somewhere around 10 or 11 AM yesterday morning. But then Greg, Jan, and Miss Terry decided that it would be nice to have breakfast at the Fountain Restaurant, across from the courthouse. I’m not really a breakfast person, but what the heck, if […]

Okay, I was wrong and Jan White was right, and I publicly admit it. But I have to tell you, it’s really hard to do that. Jan is a fan of the CBS daytime television show The Talk, starring Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, and Holly Robinson Peete, and a couple of […]

Everybody is different and every RVer is different. That’s why they make so many different types and models of motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, Class B vans and other specialty vehicles for fulltime RV travel. When it comes to selecting an RV, you have the opportunity to choose a home on wheels that closely […]

It’s Not Camping

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we are at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve, a blog reader said that they had only been here once, and left after two days because the RV sites are crammed in so close together, and this isn’t their idea of camping. There is no question that this […]
