I get a lot of questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, writing and self-publishing, and all kinds of other things.

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

It rained hard here at Elkhart Campground early Tuesday morning, the sound of the rain pounding on the roof of our motorhome waking us up. But by 10 AM or so it had stopped and we had cloudy skies overhead. After talking a little bit about scuba diving when she visited us the other day, […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Like many people who […]

We’ve belonged to the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), Good Sam Club, Bus Nuts, and a few other RV clubs over the years, but we’ve dropped them all except for the very first one we joined, the Escapees RV Club. Based in Livingston, Texas, the Escapees provide all kinds of valuable resources for RVers, from […]
