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 […]

I think it’s about time to share some more questions from my readers and my answers back to them. Maybe you will learn something useful here today. Q. I sat in on one your seminars a few years ago and I remember you mentioning an RV club for people with handicaps. At the time, it […]

I’ve been working hard to make the final corrections to my new Big Lake book, so instead of boring you with the details of that, today I thought I’d share some RV quick fix products that we find useful and can come in handy in many ways. Back at Thanksgiving I told you about a […]

There are some questions I get asked so many times that I’m almost tempted to just type the answer once and cut and paste it in from then on to save myself the trouble of having to retype it all over again. Yesterday was a good example. I got an email from someone asking me […]

After reading yesterday’s blog, No, No, And Hell No!, several readers commented or sent me emails telling me not to feel lonely. One person said her husband is the local free fix-it man for the neighborhood, and he even gets calls in the middle of night for things like a drippy faucet. Someone else sent […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish my friend Don Del Rosario happy birthday. Don and his pretty wife Sharon are very special people who have brightened our world for a long time. We need to get together for a visit the next time we’re in Arizona, or if you make it to […]

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.

We left the Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida a little before 10 a.m. yesterday for the 280 mile trip back to the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange. The trip would not be uneventful. When people ask me about safety in an RV, I always tell them that you are much more likely […]

They say that timing is everything, and for some reason whenever an RVer is getting ready to hit the road, the gremlins decide that is the perfect time to mess with you. You don’t have to be an RV tech to be able to do some quick fixes to solve a lot of problems so […]
