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 […]

In nearly 18 years of fulltime RVing, not to mention our travels away from the RV lifestyle, we have been to so many interesting places. Historic cities, battlefields, mountains, deserts, and seashores. And we have found that one of the best ways to get an overview of a place is by taking a trolley tour. […]

As I wrote in Monday’s blog, I once had a secretary who used to tell me I was an old stick in the mud because I wasn’t always quick to embrace new ideas and changes. That wasn’t entirely true. I have no problem with changes, as long as they are positive ones. But sometimes change […]

Note: Because this is a topic that comes up often, I thought I would brush off and repost this blog from March, 2013. I have been thinking about living and traveling in an RV and how different the RV lifestyle can be among different fulltimers and snowbirds. We know many RVers who enjoy seeking out […]

Any experienced RVer will tell you that one thing you have to take along with you on every trip is Jell-O. No, not the kind you eat, though that’s pretty good, too. I’m talking about the kind of Jell-O you need when plans change. In the RV lifestyle, nothing is ever set in concrete. You […]

A blog reader new to the RV lifestyle wrote to me to stay that they have been really disappointed in the campgrounds they have been staying at because the sites are very close together. He said when he thought about RVing, he pictured them being parked along some beautiful lake or river in a quiet […]

A blog reader contacted me yesterday asking when Miss Terry and I knew it was time to hang up the keys. He and his wife have been fulltiming for close to 10 years and enjoyed it much of that time. But he said lately they are beginning to dread it every time they leave a […]

Lately I have been hearing from people asking me to promote their life coaching business to my readers. Apparently that’s the hot new thing to make a living without really working while you travel the country. Interestingly enough, none of them have spent much time, if any, on the road. Only one of them actually […]

I get a lot of questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, writing and self-publishing, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all of them individually, sometimes I also share some here. Q. You guys were on the road fulltime for […]
