Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

Snowbird Roosts

With the season upon us, I thought this would be a good time to revisit some thoughts I have shared in the past on popular snowbirds roosts that we and other RVers seek out when the weather up north starts to get cold. One of the first things new snowbirds have to learn is that […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

One Bite At A Time

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. It’s the only way to get the job done. Just like you write a book one word at a time, or move into a house one box at a time. You just start at it and you keep on going until the job is […]

This is not a political blog, and this is not a political post, so please don’t reply about which candidate you believe is best or which party you think is ruining the country, or any of that, because I will delete those kind of comments. But there’s something we all need to understand. No matter […]

When we bought our house we knew there would be a lot of adjustments in making the transition from being fulltime RVers to RV snowbirds. Most have not been a big problem, a few have been funny, and yes there have been a couple of minor irritations, but nothing we can’t handle. One thing that […]

Not As Noisy

By yesterday afternoon it was not as noisy around here as it had been for the last few days. There are still a lot of Harleys here, but the RV park is starting to thin out as bikers who were here for Biketoberfest are leaving. But the folks in the office tell me it will […]

It Can Happen Anywhere

Whenever I say that we have been looking around here for a winter base and someday home if we ever hang up the keys I get e-mails from people who ask me why we would consider living in Florida, the land of hurricanes. And I always reply that every place in the country has something, […]

Alone But Never Lonely

I hear from a lot of new and wannabe RVers who are single and wondering how well they will fit into the RV lifestyle. Some are worried that they will be a third wheel alone among a community of traveling couples. Not at all! I don’t think you could find any more accepting and welcoming […]

Butt Bit

RVing is a wonderful lifestyle, whether you’re a fulltimer, a snowbird, or a weekend warrior. But like anything we do, it takes a little bit of knowledge and some experience before you get it right. I think any RVer who has been doing this for very long and is totally honest will admit to making […]
