Living and traveling in an RV fulltime, or just going about your daily routine, you just never know how many interesting places you’ll discover, and how many more you drive right on past without even knowing they are there. It’s amazing what you can find with just a couple of quick Internet searches. A good […]

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. You said your daughter is flying in to visit you. As I recall […]

It’s been a while since I’ve run a blog featuring some of the questions I receive and my answers to them. While I try to answer all questions individually, from time to time I find some that are worth sharing here. Q. The plan was to go to Alaska this summer, and at the last […]

Note: This story is from my book Overlooked Arizona. I have a tremendous amount of respect for firefighters, but it is a job I could never do. The very idea of being in a fire terrifies me. Maybe this is just a natural human reaction, or maybe it’s because I had a cousin who was […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog from December, 2016 that I thought was appropriate to repost again for those of you asking about decorating an RV for Christmas. Some people think that just because you become a fulltime RVer or a snowbird you can’t decorate for Christmas. Oh, how wrong they are! Here […]

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. I’m 72 and wondering if it’s “too late” for me, as much as […]

I received a lot of responses to yesterday’s blog about play dates for RVing kids, and the general consensus seemed to be that 15 and 17-year-old boys don’t need play dates as much as they need a mother who doesn’t hover over them monitoring their every move. I also got a few requests for information […]

Really? A Play Date?

I know I’m showing my age here, but I have to ask. What the hell is a play date? And why do kids need them? I had never heard of a play date until the last few years. If we had play dates when I was a kid, it consisted of all the mothers in […]

New Or Old?

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 […]

I get a lot of questions from new and wannabe RVers, as well as experienced road warriors, and I always try to answer them to the best of my ability. And if I don’t know the answer, I try to steer them to a source who can provide it. But sometimes I get something I […]
