Bears and Hiking Trails
Bears and Hiking Trails It's nice when you have a popular hiking trail all to yourself--that is until you find out why no one else is on the trail. Recently I went hiking with a young couple who were camped here in the campground. It was a wonderful hike and it was a popular, well-worn trail, but we didn't see another hiker the whole way. That was surprising and especially for a Sunday afternoon. When we got back to the beginning of the trail we saw a sign that we had not noticed when we started out. We were lucky. Here's what the sign said . . . keep reading
$20 and 10 minutes well spent
$20 and 10 minutes well spent I like gadgets and I'm always adding them to my motorhome. Most of them turn out to work like I expected. That's the case with the screen door handle I installed yesterday. It was $18.50 with free shipping from Amazon. . . . keep reading

Is this the perfect RV for full-time living?
Is this the perfect RV for full-time living? This is probably not the ideal RV for full-time RVing, at least, not as your first RV. This motorhome was parked near me at a recent bluegrass rally. It's not an antique. It's almost new. It was built from scratch to look old. Most people who are thinking about living full time in an RV go through a fair amount of stress trying to find the right RV for their full-time lifestyle. Save yourself a lot of hassle and realize that regardless of how much effort you put into your search, the first RV you buy is not going to be the right one for you--unless you're very lucky. Here are my thoughts to help you get lucky--at selecting an RV, that is. . . . keep reading
My Latest Book
My Latest Book

Maybe you haven't noticed but my latest book has been added to the list of my RVing books shown on the right side of the Home page of this website. While I'm telling you about my latest book, let me tell you a little about selling books on Amazon. You may notice that the price of the eBook version of this book is only $2.99. My other eBooks are priced at $3.99. There's a reason for this. This book is more of a book that someone would read for enjoyment like they would a novel. Tests have shown that "How-to" books sell just as well at $3.99 as they do at $2.99, but entertainment type eBooks (such as novels) sell a lot better at $2.99. . . . keep reading

How Long Will an RV Last?
How Long Will an RV Last? Asking how long an RV will last is like asking how long a house will last. The last time I saw George Washington's house and Thomas Edison's house, they both looked to be in excellent condition. By-the-way, if you want to see William Shakespeare's boyhood home where he lived in the 1500's, it's still in great condition. Thomas Edison had a motorhome. I wonder if it's in a museum somewhere? If it is, I bet it's in excellent condition. . . . keep reading
