Note: This is an updated post that I thought some of you might find interesting. It is based upon nothing more than my own personal opinion. In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the […]

When Miss Terry and I started fulltiming way back in 1999 we went into it with the idea that it was something we were going to do forever. We adapted well to living in the small space of a motorhome, we loved traveling and meeting new people, and we said that if we ever decided […]

Whether you are spending today at home with family or in an RV park somewhere sharing a community meal, Terry and I want to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving. Life has its ups and downs for all of us, but over all we have been very blessed, and we are thankful for that. When we […]

If you are a fulltime RVer today is the start of a great time of year for you. Labor Day ended the busy summer camping season, the kids are all back in school, and life starts moving at a slower pace at your local RV park. You’ve got about nine months to enjoy it, so […]

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 […]

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 […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from new and wannabe fulltime RVers is, how much does it cost to be a fulltimer? I can’t answer that question for them because there is no number that is accurate. No one-size-fits-all, plan your budget this way and you’ll be fine number. How much does it […]

Get Off The Road!

It looks like we’re in for some more bad weather this weekend, with the possibility of severe storms and very strong winds on Sunday. No problem, we don’t have anywhere we have to be. The larder is stocked, I’ve got a book almost finished that Miss Terry can proof and edit, and she’s got lots […]

I would venture to say that at least half of all fulltime and seasonal RVers we know travel with at least one pet, and sometimes more. And most of those pets are dogs and cats, though we have seen people with other pets that are a little more exotic. These have included somebody who traveled […]

In yesterday’s blog I wrote about our trip to a couple of antique malls and said that a lot of the things people call antiques today were everyday household items when Terry and I were growing up. Then I added that I am so old that I remember having to get up and actually change […]
