Every week, both by e-mail and on Facebook, I get a lot of questions from new and wannabe RVers, and many of them are the same ones over and over. “How do I get my mail when I’m on the road?” “What’s the best state for my domicile?” “Which is better, a motorhome, fifth wheel, […]

As I’ve said many times, there is no more beautiful place on earth than the Oregon coast. But one big drawback for a lot of RVers is the difficulty of getting online in many places. The combination of having few cell towers outside of the larger towns and the rough terrain makes getting a signal […]

There has been a lot of talk about the recent brawl at the Cottonwood, Arizona WalMart, where a family living in a vehicle attacked a store employee and then police officers who responded to the store’s calls for help. By the time it was over, a policeman had been shot, one of the suspects was […]

In our first year on the road, we made a pilgrimage to Slab City in Niland, California. If you’re not familiar with this outpost of individuality, Slab City is located on the site of an abandoned World War II Marine training base. It is home to a motley collection of people that most would call […]

Yesterday was our first vending day at the Escapade rally, and though it was a short day, we were very busy. From the moment the Market area opened it seemed like every vendor had people standing at their booths, and many had a crowd. All day long we had friends stopping by to say hello, […]

No I wasn’t at Disney World, but I had the words to that old song running through my head yesterday. While we were having lunch with Don and Sharon Del Rosario the other day, we had a conversation about the small world encounters we all have from time to time. You know the ones I’m […]

I’m not sure how it happens, but it does. We can arrive at a campground and Miss Terry can back me into our RV site on the first try and it goes smooth as silk… if nobody is there to see it. But let there be half a dozen people standing around watching, and it […]

With Christmas coming our way, I thought today I’d share some ideas for inexpensive stocking stuffers every RVer can use. They’re great for gift exchanges, showing your appreciation for the guy in the next site who helped you with some repair around your rig, and even for friends living in sticks and bricks houses who […]

Holidays On The Road

We are almost halfway through our fifteenth year of fulltime RVing which means that we have spent a lot of holidays on the road. Most of them really aren’t family events, except for the two coming up, Thanksgiving and Christmas. But for many RVers, they can be challenging. Of course it’s easy if your family […]

An Easy Trip South

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 130 mile trip to North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina. I was glad I remembered to turn on our engine heater because it had gotten down into the low 50s overnight and was a chilly morning. By the time we did our routine morning […]
