Don’t you hate it when somebody tries to sell you something by being sneaky and dishonest? No, I’m not talking about the local RV salesman, though that description fits a lot of them I have met. I’m talking about any salesperson who has to try to mislead you just to make a buck. Don’t get […]

My longtime friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for a while now, waiting to close on a home he bought a block or so away. The closing happened on Wednesday, and yesterday we went into Port Orange and Daytona Beach looking for some furniture he needed. Our first stop was at some kind […]

As I’ve mentioned here many times, I get a lot of e-mail from people wanting information about RVing and the fulltime RV lifestyle, from people asking questions about specific makes and models of RVs, and other questions including things like campground suggestions, repair shop suggestions, which mail forwarding services are best for RVers, and such.

Today’s the day I kick off my first day-long self-publishing workshop and I must admit to being a bit nervous.

For the last 10 days we’ve been pretty much living at the hospital and then hospice with our friend Shar and her husband, getting there early and staying late. We would get home in time to check e-mail and Facebook, write a blog, and go to bed. So I have not gotten much work done […]

There always seems to be something going on here at the Pima County Fairgrounds, and staying here in their RV park we get a front row seat for much of the activity. Or inactivity, occasionally. This weekend alone there are three events going on – a horse show, a Spa and Patio show, and an […]

After reading my blog The View Is The Same, from a couple of days ago, a reader sent me an e-mail expressing her concerns that she might be turned away from a lot of campgrounds that have a rule banning any RVs older than ten years. This is a topic that comes up from time […]

I got an e-mail the other day from a person who markets a well known product to the RV industry. He was unhappy with the comments I wrote about one of his products that he sent me to evaluate. He called what I had to say a “hatchet job.” While I wouldn’t go that far, […]

Everything I have read and heard would lead you to believe that the RV industry is in awful shape. But it sure does not seem like the RV salespeople around the Mesa, Arizona area are going hungry, based upon their attitudes. We were out kicking tires yesterday, checking out the used diesel pusher market. At […]
