We’ve been doing a lot of that since we got back home on Sunday afternoon. Catching up on email, catching up on blogs we have missed in the week we were on the road, catching up on laundry, and catching up on rest. And in today’s blog I will catch up on some things I haven’t had time to post yet.
The first thing I need to do is answer the many questions from blog readers wanting to know who our accountant is who managed to do such a wonderful job on some complicated tax issues we had, saving us a ton of money in the process. Her name is Donna Poirier and her company is Diversified Accounting Solutions, here in Edgewater, Florida. Her telephone number is (407) 325-9505. Most accountants I have talked to in the past don’t seem to understand the whole fulltime RVing and running a business on the road thing because we are square pegs that don’t fit into round holes. But Donna works with a lot of construction people and truckers who live a similar lifestyle, so she gets it. And she can usually work with you long distance via email and telephone calls to get the job done.
I always like to show off Miss Terry’s creations, and here are two scarves that she took off the loom right before we took off on our road trip. As with everything she weaves, they are beautiful.
Over the years a lot of people have bemoaned the loss of the Life on Wheels program, which was the “college” for RVers. Terry and I were very proud to be instructors for Life on Wheels because we know how important good education is for those entering the RV lifestyle. And while Life on Wheels may be gone, the Escapees RV Club has recently launched an excellent educational program called RVers Online University (RVOU). The new program brings the Escapees’ acclaimed RVers’ Boot Camp online with lessons on topics ranging from driving safety to RV maintenance, with new lessons and topics added regularly. I’m impressed with everything I’ve seen so far, and I think you will be, too. Check it out.
I got some inquiries as to whether we are going to continue with our free drawings here in the blog, since there wasn’t one last week. Yes, we will start off with a new drawing this Thursday. I’m sorry, but with everything going on I completely forgot about it last week.
And in closing, I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that in the process of downsizing we are going to sell our 2002 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage. I’ve got it priced low for a quick sale, and I might even consider a nice pontoon boat in part trade. But please, folks, I’m not a bank or a credit union, so don’t ask me to carry the note. I had inquiries from six different people who are interested and wanted to put down a couple thousand dollars and drive away with it. I’m sorry, but if your bank won’t trust you enough to loan you the money to buy an RV, what makes you think I should?
