Rest in Peace We were in Bar Harbor, Maine. We had just finished a tour on a lobster boat. I just learned that Chance, our motorhome that we left in Littleton, New Hampshire, has a blown engine. We cannot afford to put the amount of money required into our 1999 motorhome. So what are we … Continue reading WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN…
This category talks about all things RV, upgrades, buying & selling, repair, etc.
My apologies for such a long absence. There’s been a lot going on, and I’ve been somewhat distracted, but I’m going to try and catch you up with this post. I’ll try and keep it brief. We spent the summer preaching at a little church in Iron Mountain, Michigan. Iron Mountain is in the far … Continue reading CATCHING UP
Staying connected while on the road is essential to me and most others. When we had a home, it was simple. We had blazing fast internet through a local cable company. We could also get our TV channels through them if we preferred. But what do you do when you live in a motor home … Continue reading Connectivity
“Adventuresome individuals, couples, and families who have chosen a wonderful lifestyle that combines ANY kind of part-time or full-time work with RV camping. If you work as an employee, operate a business, or donate your time as a volunteer, AND you sleep in an RV, you are a Workamper!” (https://www.workamper.com/glossary) Also known as workamping or … Continue reading Work Camping

U.S. 2 continues to run parallel to the river until it eventually crosses the river again back into Michigan. Along the way, you pass through Florence. For … Continue reading Florence, Wisconsin

Some of our favorite RVing and camping experiences have been with friends. Meeting up with others or even traveling together adds meaning to your RV experience. We enjoy meeting up with others. Just recently we met friends in Northern Kentucky and spent a few days together in General Butler State Park. We have met up … Continue reading RVING WITH FRIENDS
GETTING READY TO GO
We are filled with excitement to be returning to full time RV living. But the doing of it is quite daunting. Mary and our daughter Melissa moved out of our 5th wheel just about one year ago. I was busy trying to die in the hospital. It is surprising how much stuff you can accumulate … Continue reading GETTING READY TO GO
WE ARE GOING TO DO IT!
A little over a year ago we stopped full time RVing. We had been fulltiming a little over a year when I had a medical emergency which knocked us off the road. (You can read the details of the medical emergency in The Unexpected Journey in earlier posts on this blog.) We could not foresee … Continue reading WE ARE GOING TO DO IT!
HOW WE BOUGHT A MOTOR HOME
Early on during my health crisis (you can read about it in my blog posts The Unexpected Journey) we didn’t think we would ever be able to manage our RV again. Even if I recovered, we doubted that we would be able to handle a thirty-eight-foot fifth wheel and the one-ton pickup we hauled it … Continue reading HOW WE BOUGHT A MOTOR HOME
HOW I SOLD MY RV
When you need to get rid of your RV, what is the best way to do it? If you are also thinking of getting another RV the issue is a little different than if you are just selling. We have done both. We traded in an RV when buying a different one and we have … Continue reading HOW I SOLD MY RV
