The first order of business in today’s blog is to wish my two favorite cousins in the world happy birthday, Beverly McKiddy and Berni Frees. They’re not twins or even siblings and their birthdays are a few years apart, but both ladies are very special to me. We wish we could be with both of […]

After fifteen years of presenting seminars at RV rallies and events nationwide, along with self-publishing seminars and workshops, I like to think that I’m at least halfway competent and semi-professional.

Finding a reliable place to get repairs and service on an RV can be a challenge, especially when you are on the road and not familiar with who you can trust to do a good job at a fair price. It’s the reason we created our RV Good Guys guide to companies you can trust […]

A cold front is making its way across Arizona, bringing a mixture of rain and snow to the high country, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s and lows in the upper 20s for the next couple of days. Down here in the desert we’re in the low 70s during the day and […]

As I reported in Tuesday’s blog, All American Direct, the company that has been providing distant network service (DNS) to Dish Network customers who want to get the east and west coast feeds, is going out of business and it looked like Dish was not going to do anything to help. As with most calls […]

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]
