LIFE ON THE ROAD
Ahhh, life on the road. It can be so different for everyone. Here, we share some of our experiences to give you a taste of what it can entail – from adjusting to the lifestyle, to making new friends, to preparing a big holiday feast in our RV kitchen, to how we handled a royal RV GPS fail at night in the rain. We give you a taste of our farm stay in California, take you along for the ride on our first boondocking adventure in the desert, and share our costs, including water, and fuel usage. We also share some of our campground stays, and recap on our experiences on the road and what we’ve learned over the years. We share the experiences of others, so you can learn from what works for them as well. There is no one size fits all, when it comes to RVing!

We’ll be home for Christmas this year. Yes, in a real, ‘stick & brick’ home, that we recently bought in Colorado. That means we’ll be doing more ‘hub & spoke’ style travel from our home base as part time RVers, instead of full timing as we have been for the past 6+ years. Here’s the
On the heels of the coronavirus pandemic, with most states lifting shelter in place orders, how so RVers feel about the upcoming camping season? Are you ready to get back out there? Feel nervous?

As states begin lifting lockdowns, people are already planning camping trips and hitting the road in their RVs. Campgrounds are opening back up. Gas prices are the lowest we’ve seen in ages. And with most rigs being completely self contained, an RV is hands down the safest way to travel. But as you get back
As the coronavirus pandemic escalates, so do restrictions on travel and movement. It is now URGENT that we all hunker down safely, until further notice. But what if you’re an RVer far from home? Or a full-time RVer with no home to return to? What to do? Where to go? And for how long? In these
