I like to have an easy RV breakfast on moving day, and one way I do that is with gluten-free microwave mug muffins that can be ready start-to-finish in less than five minutes. To be honest, these aren’t just moving day fare. Tasty, filling, nutritious, AND easy? Who am I kidding … they’re on the menu several times each week.
We don’t stay in one spot for long with our motorhome. As of today, we’re at about 7,500 miles for the year, and we’re not quite done yet. In addition, once or twice each year we hop on an airplane and leave our motorhome behind.
Back in our ‘sticks and bricks’ days, leaving the house for a week or two was relatively easy. We made sure everything was locked up tight, turned the heat down low or the AC up high, and asked the neighbors to collect our mail and keep an eye on things. But with a house on wheels, there’s more to take into consideration. It requires finding an RV park that doesn’t have rules against leaving your rig unattended, as well as extra RV security precautions, because … it’s a house on wheels.
We're adding something new this week: A Full-Time RV Travel Roundup
I got to thinking that we're both very active on social media, as are many other RV and Travel Bloggers. We find and share a lot of really good info on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. But if that info doesn't make it back to our site or into our newsletter, it has a really short shelf life AND it's not helping our blog and newsletter readers.
So, beginning with this post, we’ll publish one curated article a week, sometimes less, never more in addition to our regular blog articles that we write personally. Please let us know what you think of this. Do you like it? Hate it? Want more of something? Or less?
We often say that our plans are set in jello as full-time RVers. Plans sometimes change with little notice, and that’s been our story for most of 2017. Coming to Colorado at all was a major change of plans, with that idea not even considered until the end of July. Two industry events in Denver were the catalyst for this trip, but the excitement for it was sparked by a little research. And just like that, we absolutely had to take a train ride through the Rockies!
Our first event in Denver was the 37th National Narrow Gauge Convention, where we represented our manufacturing customers to model railroad enthusiasts. You can’t be around that many steam train fanatics for long without getting excited about experiencing riding aboard a real train for yourself.
Autumn has always been my favorite season. I love the way it smells, all spicy and woodsy. The motion of it: Leaves gently falling, golden, colorful, whispers on the wind. And what about those colors – golds, yellow, reds, browns – set against a brilliant, blue sky? What’s not to love about this time of year?
