I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]

After reading my blog post about using medical marijuana to control my back pain, I got an email from a longtime reader telling me that her husband suffered with pain for many years until his doctor suggested medical marijuana 12 years ago. Since they live in Colorado it was easy to get, and just like […]

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 […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we took a road trip to visit family and friends and do some genealogy research, along with gathering lots of stories about interesting places to visit for my blog readers. Rather than cram too much into one very long blog, I will be talking about the overall details of […]

In a Q&A blog post a while back, somebody asked if there was any place that Terry and I wanted to visit while we were fulltiming but never managed to get to. As I said then, we crossed every place off of our bucket list that we wanted to see. A couple of days later […]

If I had to give new RVers advice on how to get the best of their traveling experience, I would tell them with two words. Slow down. Let me emphasize that. Sloooow Doooown! There’s a big country out there and no matter how soon you start RVing or how long you do it, you are […]

No Immediate Plans

I wasn’t surprised that three or four people contacted me after reading yesterday’s blog to tell me they were so excited that Terry and I are going to be RVing again, at least on a part-time basis. Obviously they didn’t read the entire blog, or else they have short-term memory loss. I’m not sure which. So, […]

Info RVers Can Use

Do you have an extra key stashed somewhere outside of your RV, maybe one of those magnetic Hide-A-Key gizmos, so you can get in if you are ever locked out? I know a lot of RVers who do, and we had one for our motorhome, too. Of course, it can be a problem if you […]

I spent some time yesterday having an email conversation with a couple who are in their fourth year of fulltiming and said they feel like they are in a rut. Like all new fulltimers, when they started out they expected to be seeing new sites and having new adventures all the time, but in their […]

I received an email the other day from someone telling me that they had reservations at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve for two weeks this month, but now they’re thinking about canceling them because they are worried about the mass shooting that happened there earlier this month. They asked me if I thought it […]
