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 […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from new and wannabe fulltime RVers is, how much does it cost to be a fulltimer? I can’t answer that question for them because there is no number that is accurate. No one-size-fits-all, plan your budget this way and you’ll be fine number. How much does it […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to send out birthday greetings to some very special ladies. Today is my daughter Tiffany’s birthday. I won’t tell you how old she is, because I guess that is verboten, but just let me just say that when she was born I still had some hair and […]

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 […]

There are a lot of things in the RV lifestyle you should know, from how to get your mail forwarded to which are the best states to choose for your legal domicile, to what kinds of (choose one – fire extinguisher, insurance company, tire pressure monitoring system, toilet paper, etc. you should choose). I have […]

What do you do all day? It’s a question fulltime RVers get asked all the time. The real question is, how can we cram another twelve hours into every day to get all of the things done we want to? RVers have many hobbies that fit perfectly into our lifestyle, offering plenty of opportunities to […]

We used to do a lot of dry camping but it’s just not our thing anymore and our Winnebago motorhome isn’t set up for extended boondocking. This was reaffirmed for us on our trip to Lake Havasu City. Our house batteries, which we bought two or three years ago, have not held up well at […]

One of the most common questions I get about the fulltime RV lifestyle is, “How much does it cost?” The answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is, “How much you got?” The fulltime lifestyle does not have to be expensive, but if you’ve got it, you can spend it. We know some […]

Heavy thunderstorms were predicted for Grand Traverse County yesterday, and about 7:30 a.m. it rained really hard for about 15 minutes, and then it stopped. It was strange, because there was no light rain or wind as a prelude; it just suddenly started to pound on the roof of our motorhome, and just as suddenly […]

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, while others prefer state parks, or RV resorts with full amenities. But no matter how we travel in our RVs, or where we go with them, we all have […]

After reading my blog The View Is The Same, from a couple of days ago, a reader sent me an e-mail expressing her concerns that she might be turned away from a lot of campgrounds that have a rule banning any RVs older than ten years. This is a topic that comes up from time […]

DirecTV Impresses Me

I’ve never been a fan of either Dish Network or DirecTV. I’ve had both services at one time or another, and am currently a Dish customer. As a fulltime RVer, I have had a number of frustrating encounters with the customer service people at both companies.. However, I believe that when a company goes the […]

Hey, give me a break! You try coming up with clever blog post headlines every day! It’s hard work! 🙂 After reading yesterday’s blog, some readers wanted to know if the new high back seat from Sea Eagle was any improvement for my bad back. Yes, after paddling 90 minutes on Saturday afternoon, I had […]

We had a surprisingly quiet night at the Georgia State Welcome Center, and were on the road by 8:30 a.m., which is probably a new record for us, but we had a lot of miles to cover. We had a little technical issue I wanted to have looked at, so I called the Camping World […]
