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 […]

Note: I have shared these tips before online and at the seminars I present at RV rallies, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Spend enough time behind the wheel of a motorhome or dragging a fifth wheel or travel trailer around the country and you’ll eventually pick up a lot of knowledge and […]

I have shared this information before, but since I know men have short attention spans, I thought it might be time for a refresher course. Okay, fellows, this is for your eyes only. If your beautiful bride spots this we’re both in big trouble. These helpful hints are guaranteed to make things easier as you […]

Except for some appointments with the doctor and the chiropractor, we haven’t been out much in the last week or so because it’s been so bloody hot here. If you live in Florida, just like people who live in Arizona and other places with intense heat, you learn to appreciate the benefits of staying home […]

I love hearing from blog readers, and in an average week I will get well over 100 personal emails. Many of those emails have questions about RVing or other things I’ve written about, and I’m always happy to answer to the best of my ability. If I don’t know the answer, I try to refer […]

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 […]

Or at least it seems that way for now. After being missing in action for over two weeks, my buddy Greg White’s Our RV Adventures blog is back online. When I talked to Greg yesterday, he said it’s been back for over 24 hours and it hadn’t crashed yet. This, compared to the last couple […]

Campers And RVers

Note: This is an updated post that I thought some of you might find interesting. It is based upon nothing more than my own personal opinion. In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the […]

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. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Don’t Be A Slob

It’s that time of year once again, the start of the snowbird season, and RVs are already abandoning the colder climates up north and heading south in search of sunshine and warm weather. If you’re one of them, please drive carefully. There are a lot of crazy people out there texting and talking on cell […]

Size Matters

Note: This is a reprint from a 2014 blog post. One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel, or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question because no one size fits all RV has […]

Sometimes part of my job is bursting somebody’s bubble. I really don’t like doing it, but I guess somebody has to. One such example was an e-mail I received the other day from a very nice couple who have been reading the blog for a long time. They are weekend campers and have a pop-up […]

We were awakened yesterday by a lady knocking on our door to ask me if I thought it was safe to return to St. Augustine. She was alone in a travel trailer and eager to get back home but worried about traffic, wind, and what she might find when she got there. I told her […]

Last year when I wrote in the blog that we were looking for a place to buy in Florida to serve as our winter base and fulltime home if we ever hang up the keys, somebody asked why we would want to live in a place where they have hurricanes. My reply was that everyplace […]

Sunday evening we got an email from our old friend Pat Astbury, telling us she was at Elkhart Campground and had been thinking about us and the times we have crossed paths here. Pat and her husband Scott were a very nice couple that we always enjoyed visiting with, and we were heartbroken when Scott […]

Sometimes Less Is More

One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

Every week, both by e-mail and on Facebook, I get a lot of questions from new and wannabe RVers, and many of them are the same ones over and over. “How do I get my mail when I’m on the road?” “What’s the best state for my domicile?” “Which is better, a motorhome, fifth wheel, […]

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. While many people think […]
