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. I have three 12-volt batteries in my motorhome to power the things inside […]

RV Trash

Ken Harris of Liverpool, New York sent this to us quite some time ago and we got a chuckle out of it! You know you’re RV trash when: *They post signs at WalMart saying your RV is not welcome! *You call the garbage cans at rest areas “dump stations.” *You “found” most of your RV […]

I stole the title to today’s blog from my favorite singer of all time, Jimmy Buffett (who is followed closely by Billy Joel). If you haven’t heard the song, here is a YouTube link to it. I think it’s a message we all need right now. My email and newsfeeds and Facebook are all blowing […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog from a few years ago that covers some questions I get quite often. Okay, the question of the day is, who makes the rules? I never get invited to the meetings when whatever secret society it is that determines such things get together, but apparently there is […]

After reading a post a while back where I said I have lost 20+ pounds, some readers wanted to know what kind of diet I was on. I’m not on any formal diet, I have just stopped eating the junk food I love so much and cut back on snacks, stopped eating ice cream and […]

It’s no secret that I love books. I love reading them and I love writing them. Even with the wealth of knowledge available on the internet, there are still a lot of great RVing books that should be on your bookshelf, or in your Kindle. And even with a gazillion apps for RVers, there are […]

On the Mend

Thank you everybody who sent emails and messages expressing concern about my health. I feel a lot better than I did Sunday and Sunday night. Not great, but better. Terry thought of something yesterday morning that may explain what’s going on with me. A week ago last Sunday I started a new medication for diabetes, […]

If you are a fulltime RVer today is the start of a great time of year for you. Labor Day ended the busy summer camping season, the kids are all back in school, and life starts moving at a slower pace at your local RV park. You’ve got about nine months to enjoy it, so […]

We spent some time with the doctor yesterday, going over my MRI results and the radiology report, and then discussing what the options are. We covered several different things, from continued chiropractic treatments to stem cell therapy, to pain management options including everything from medical marijuana to a spinal pain blocking injection, and all the […]

Do you have an extra key stashed somewhere outside of your RV, maybe one of those magnetic Hide-A-Key gizmos, so you can get in if you are ever locked out? I know a lot of RVers who do, and we had one for our motorhome, too. Of course, it can be a problem if you […]
