We may have hung up the keys but we still get hitch itch and we’ve got a lot of traveling left to do. In 18+ years of fulltiming we saw a lot of places but there are still some we never got to, as well as places we definitely want to go back to once […]

Today let’s discuss problems in the bedroom. Don’t worry. I’m not talking about any difficulties Miss Terry and I have in the boudoir. For a couple of old farts, we seem to manage okay. But apparently not everybody is so lucky, based on some of the emails I’ve been getting lately. The other day I […]

We spent five days in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my son Travis and his wife Geli, touring the area for blog fodder and introducing people at libraries and stores to my books. But all good things must come to an end, and before we knew it was time to head home to Florida. We left Wednesday […]

At every seminar I did on fulltime RVing at rallies and shows nationwide, I always got the same questions from new and want to be fulltimers, and I get the same questions by email all the time. So today I thought I would try to answer some of them for you. How much does it […]

I’ve met a lot of authors in my time, and I’m always interested in how and where they work. Some of them say they must have their own quiet space with no distractions, while others claim they can write anywhere, including coffee shops, sitting at the kitchen table while the kids and dog are running […]

When Miss Terry and I started fulltiming way back in 1999 we went into it with the idea that it was something we were going to do forever. We adapted well to living in the small space of a motorhome, we loved traveling and meeting new people, and we said that if we ever decided […]

After all of the bad weather we had on Thursday, Friday dawned with blue skies and chilly temperatures. And wind. Lots of wind. But that’s okay, we weren’t driving an RV anywhere so we didn’t have to worry about that too much. It was a very busy day for us. It started out with somebody […]

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 […]

Trolley Touring

In nearly 18 years of fulltime RVing, not to mention our travels away from the RV lifestyle, we have been to so many interesting places. Historic cities, battlefields, mountains, deserts, and seashores. And we have found that one of the best ways to get an overview of a place is by taking a trolley tour. […]

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. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]
