I Just Don’t Get It

I got involved in an email discussion with a gentleman the other day that was frustrating for him and me both, I’m sure. And the upshot of it all was that I just don’t get it. Somebody referred this man, who is building an MCI bus conversion similar to what we had, to me. He […]

RV Financing Perils

Because I get a lot of e-mails from blog readers asking about RV financing, I thought I’d brush off this blog from March, 2014 and run it again. I hear from people all the time who have a good credit rating, have found the perfect RV for their needs, and then run into trouble when […]

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 […]

No, there were no spaceships landing in our driveway in the last few days. We did have a visitor, but she didn’t come from that far away! Jill Baum used to work for my White Mountain Weekly newspaper back in Arizona about 24 years ago. We lost touch as time went on and she moved […]

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 […]

I have celebrated the wonders of a product called Strike Hold here in the blog before. It’s a cleaner that removes rust, corrosion, and carbon; it penetrates deep to clean away debris and loosen stuck metal and electrical contacts, and it is an excellent dry lubricant. The first time we saw this stuff was at an […]

How Did I Do That?

Since this is Sunday, normally I would include something in today’s blog telling you that it is your last chance to enter our weekly Free Drawing and that the winner would be drawn this evening. But somehow I managed to completely forget about the drawing this week. They usually begin on Thursday and run through […]

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. Whether you’re at home having a meal with family, sharing a meal with friends in an RV park, or are going out to dinner someplace, I hope you have a wonderful time. And I hope you take a moment or two to think about all that we have to be thankful for. There is […]

Stay Away, Irma!

While folks in Texas and Louisiana are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, here in Florida we are watching the Caribbean, where Hurricane Irma is making a path toward us. Or at least that’s one of the paths. If and where she will land in Florida is still in question. Here’s an idea; […]

A Schedule (Of Sorts)

Miss Terry and I spent too many years of our lives on a schedule, both before we became fulltime RVers, and then for most of our 17+ years as working RVers. It seemed like we were always on our way to some rally or speaking gig or something. In the last few years we have […]
