While overall, RVing is one of the safest lifestyles there is, we must always keep in mind that no place is ever 100% safe.

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 […]
