Hello and Welcome . . .
We are retired, love life and
enjoy RVing in this beautiful Country. We have 3 simple
goals: 1. We want to take our time exploring America by RV. 2. Find
the great local restaurants and visit the must-see
places on our "bucket list". 3. Accomplish goals 1 and 2 while
getting the most value for those hard-earned retirement dollars we
If you have similar ideas, come ride along with us for a bit and
see what we are talking about.
Perhaps you are new to the RV lifestyle? We hope some of the
information we have to share is of help to you. Maybe you're an
old-hand at RVing and have been doing it for years? If so, we
hope you will share some tips and comments. All
comments are always welcome.
RVers starting out often worry whether they can afford it. For
the most part that's an easy one to answer because so many of the
expenses you find with a typical home just are no more. But, do
you have to camp in Walmart parking lots or "boondock" in a
forest and live off the land to make ends meet? No, not unless
you want to. We didn't and still don't!
Sure you can find places on Public Land to "boondock"
for small or no fees, but you may want to have just a few more
"creature comforts". You'll find many city and county parks
offer economical sites with full or partial hook-ups.
You can also camp comfortably and very economically, by
belonging to a club like Passport America and only pay half the
going rate at member campgrounds. (Probably 75% of our camping
is done at reduced, mostly 50% campgrounds.) That's with water,
electric, and sewer connections (FHU), and all of the activities
they offer, often including free cable TV and Wi-Fi.
We also belong to AAA which is a great source for free trip and
route planning books. We are members of the Good Sam Club which
gives us 10% off from their member campgrounds. We also have "Roadside Assistance"
(which has proved its worth in some tense situations), and also
a "Mail Forwarding" program.
So many clubs, so much expense? Not really. If you are serious
about your RVing, just do the figures.
It all pays for itself quickly with just a few nights on the road each
year and it also provides great peace of mind for you and your
Take RVing a step farther and consider "Workamping". Work one
season and play the rest of the year. We enjoy work camping and talk
a lot about about it on an attached page.
Safe travels and enjoy the journey,
K.C. & B.B.

Planning our next trip!
Some find it a chore, others
prefer not to plan and just let the destination dictate the route
and stopovers as they go. For us the planning is a big part of the
fun. We'll be heading North in May but have already started thinking
and talking about the trip that is 4 months away. There are things
we want to see. Perhaps visit some old friends and favorite places
along the way. As always we are still searching for the best
campgrounds and restaurants to be found along the many RV routes
from Florida and the Gulf Coast to New England and Canada. (We
always define "best" as the "best values" for our retirement $$$.
Not the cheapest but actually receiving what you are paying for.) A
few days at Myrtle Beach is always in the planning and we build the
rest of the trip around it. This year we know we are adding a visit
to Mayberry (Mt Airy, NC) as well. Now we just need to fill in the
blank spots on the route. We welcome your suggestions of
campgrounds, restaurants, and sights to see.

Creature Comforts vs that old sewer
Are you tired of fighting with the big slinky sewer hose and the
challenge of trying to match your system to the difficult dump sites
you encounter? Are you hesitant to hook up the electric macerators
you see advertised? We definitely were and found an easier and much
more painless solution.

manufacturer. These are just our findings and opinions.)
