It’s still cold here in Florida, and cold is not my friend. It makes my joints ache and before you know it I’m launching into a snivel. Nobody wants to hear that. As fulltime RVers, we tried to avoid cold-weather whenever possible. But sometimes we got stuck someplace and had to deal with. I never […]

It’s Not Camping

I get a lot of email from RVers as well as from campers. And I get a lot of emails from people who believe they are one and the same. They’re not. At least not by my definition, for what that’s worth. In my mind, RVers are people who live or travel in an RV […]

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 occasionally. Q. My husband is an introvert who is perfectly happy staying home reading books […]

Stretching for forty miles along the southern Oregon coastline is a natural wonderland of beaches and huge sand dunes sculpted by the wind. It’s the perfect landscape for everything from hiking and photography to flying kites and camping. Welcome to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The largest area of coastal sand dunes in North […]

RVing Is Hard Work

The other day I received an email from somebody who was telling me that they were totally unprepared for how much work is involved in the RV lifestyle. They weren’t talking about workamping or making a living on the road. Their revelation was about how much goes into traveling in an RV; packing the rig […]

Fireworks In November

I expected to set off some fireworks in yesterday’s blog about the woman being thrown out of the campground swimming pool because she had her two emotional support dogs in the water with her, and I wasn’t disappointed. And while most of the blog comments were positive, I did get hammered by email. One blog […]

I received an email yesterday from an irate woman who wanted me to help spread the word that a campground, whose name I won’t be mentioning here, threw her and her husband out “for no reason at all.” She said they have four Pomeranian dogs, of which two of them are his emotional support animals […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Just Hanging

Yesterday was another busy day for us, even though we were just hanging out at home. And when I say hanging, I mean that in more ways than one. I mentioned the other day that our friends Greg and Jan White are coming to visit, and somebody asked if they would be parking their motorhome […]

Note: Because this is a topic that comes up often, I thought I would brush off and repost this blog from March, 2013. I have been thinking about living and traveling in an RV and how different the RV lifestyle can be among different fulltimers and snowbirds. We know many RVers who enjoy seeking out […]
