Most fulltime RVers and RV snowbirds are either in their winter roosts already, or will be headed for them right after the holidays. Many will be joining us here in Florida, others will be headed to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, or to Arizona or Southern California. Anywhere the sun shines and the snow […]

I have said many times that if you hang out at the Escapees Rainbows End RV Park in Livingston, Texas and at Elkhart Campground here in Indiana long enough you will meet every RVer in the world. Sooner or later they all come through. We have been coming to Elkhart Campground since our first year […]

Bob and Gita Patel, owners of Elkhart Campground, love it when a big rally comes to the fairgrounds in Goshen, some 30 miles south of here. Being the largest and best campground in the area, many RVers come here first to hang out for a week or two before a rally starts, and a lot […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter […]

Well, Thanksgiving has expanded our waistlines and Black Friday has reduced our bank accounts. It’s the Christmas shopping season, so let the madness begin! Get out there and stimulate the economy, it’s a holiday tradition and your duty as an American consumer. Me, I’ll just stay at home listening to Christmas carols and let you […]

This wasn’t a typical Thanksgiving for us, sitting at a table loaded with food and surrounded by family and friends, but it was still a very good day. And I think Terry and I both ended the day feeling very grateful for all that we have in our lives. We spent most of the last […]

Making RV Friends

I wrote a blog a few days ago titled RVing Friends Are The Best, in which I celebrated the many friendships we have developed in our years of fulltime RVing. I received this e-mail in response: “Nick, We are planning to go full time in June and I am terrified. While my husband is gregarious […]

Or at least I would if I delivered mail on the streets where these cool custom mailboxes can be found! I’m always on the lookout for funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and I’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. And some of my RVing friends […]

Where does the time go? Our two weeks at Sunshine Key RV Resort are over today, and tomorrow we will be leaving the Florida Keys. Even though we didn’t get to do some of the things we had looked forward to, like kayaking or doing some fishing, it has still been one of the most […]

Our Little Community

We were having dinner with RVing friends Stu and Donna McNicol and Greg and Jan White, and during our conversation the names of other fulltimers we knew came up several times. Later, driving home from the restaurant, Jan said that it was surprising how many people we knew in common. That’s one of the many […]
