Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from January, 2014 and is based on the seminar by the same name that I have presented at RV rallies coast to coast.  We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I reached the point where we preferred the comforts of […]

Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

LLCs, KU, And FB

After reading yesterday’s blog, a regular reader posted a couple comments suggesting that people form an LLC and avoid all the registration hassles from their state. For those who haven’t heard the term before, an LLC is a limited liability corporation. Many people form them in Montana, which welcomes out-of-state residents to do so. To […]

Don’t Do It!

Every so often I hear from RVers who are not fulltimers wanting to know about establishing an address with a mail forwarding service and then buying an RV out-of-state and registering it in one of the more RV friendly states like Texas, South Dakota, or Florida. Some of them plan to leave their homes and […]

In a blog post the other day titled Finally Got It Wet, I wrote about our first outing with our Bennington pontoon boat. I also shared that while our time on the water was very nice, we ran into a problem once we had the boat loaded onto the scissor trailer and inside our garage. […]

If One Is Good…

If acquiring one antique console radio is good, getting two of them must be better, right? At least, that’s how I planned to explain it to Miss Terry. As I wrote in a recent blog post titled Radios And More Radios!, I have been looking for a nice old console radio to put in my […]

I guess if you raise enough hell on social media and in a blog it gets things done, since yesterday we received our long awaited refund from SimpliSafe for the alarm system we returned weeks ago. It’s about time. The refund will just about cover the cost of all the material we bought to finish […]

And The Winner Is…

In a blog post a few weeks ago titled What To Do? What To Do?, I said I was trying to decide whether to buy my wife’s husband a red Mustang fastback or a pontoon boat for Valentine’s Day. Apparently not everybody gets my sense of humor or could read between the lines, because three different […]

The title of today’s blog says it all. After months of trying to get our SimpliSafe home security system to work, more calls to their tech support people that I could begin to count, where they insisted I jump through one hoop after another, replacing the network card, and trying four or five different base […]

How About Some Q&A?

I get a lot of questions from blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. It’s been a while, but here are some of the latest. Q. A friend told me something about diesel fuel with red dye in it and […]
