This is the second half of yesterday’s blog, covering some of the many questions we regularly get from new and wannabe fulltimers. Which is better for fulltime use, a motorhome, travel trailer, or a 5th wheel trailer? No one style or model of RV will be right for everyone. Everybody’s needs, budget, and lifestyle are […]

One of the things many new RVers seem to be baffled by is the care and treatment of their black tank and I’m not sure why. It’s really a relatively simple process but people make it difficult. There are only four things to remember, and if you remember them and don’t listen to all of […]

We spent yesterday walking the waterfront here in Newport, poking our heads into shops, watching the fishing boats coming and going, and people watching. Newport is one of my favorite towns along the Oregon coast, the perfect cross of working fishing port and tourist destination, not too commercialized, laid back, and friendly. Years ago, when […]

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 […]

We spent yesterday driving along U.S. Highway 90, which parallels the Gulf beaches here in Mississippi. The eye of the Hurricane Katrina came ashore here, back in 2005, and decimated the region. We wanted to see how much damage was still evident, and what had changed in the wake of that disaster. It was an […]

We did a lot of research before we ever left our hometown in Arizona to become fulltime RVers, and one of the things that came out of that research was our decision to join the Passport America discount camping club. Our membership has served us well in our 12+ years on the road. In fact, we […]

We left Eagle’s Landing in Holt, Florida about 10 a.m. yesterday and drove 20 miles west on U.S. Highway 90 to Milton, where we met Larry and Melissa Beahm, and their friends Art and Barbara Johnson, for brunch. If you were at our Eastern Gypsy Gathering in Elkhart last summer, you will remember Larry and […]

Because the office at Rustic Sands Campground was closed when we arrived Friday night, I was up bright and early yesterday morning to get in and pay for our site, and to see if they could recommend a shop to work on our coach. The office was supposed to open at 8 a.m. and I […]

Well, our trip west hasn’t gotten off to a great start so far. In fact, most of yesterday kind of sucked. We were up bright and early, and Miss Terry did an excellent job getting the inside of our motorhome ready to travel, while I dumped our black tank and unhooked the utilities, went inside […]

We’ve had all the fun we can have, or at least all the fun we have time to have, and today we plan to hit the road. There were a lot of things that we didn’t get done while we’ve been here in Florida, but we have to be in Yuma in mid-February to get […]
