2017 Rolled To A Close

On the road to Osier, CO.

As another year of our RVing journey rolled to a stop, we drove our motorhome some 7500 miles which is the second shortest out of the four plus years we’ve been full timing. This is in part to client obligations that kept us primarily in the central part of the country. That said, we added 20 RV parks that we had never visited before in 9 different states. Along the way we met lots of new friends and were able to reconnect with many we had met previously.

Simple Tips for RV Security When You Are Away

Planning ahead for your RV security gives peace of mind before you hop on that flight.

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.

Full-Time RV Travel Roundup #1

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?

Winds Is It Too Much

Things to consider before driving in high winds.

This time of year as autumn provides us with vivid colors, seasonal winds pick up and remind us that winter is coming. For many of us RVers this is the time of year we begin the journey to our ‘wintering grounds’ and that means we could find ourselves dealing with these seasonal breezes.

A gentle breeze is a wonderful thing while sitting around your RV; it helps to keep you cool and the bugs away. But when it’s more than a breeze, wind is something you need to be keenly aware of, whether your RV is parked or you’re driving it down the road.

3 Must-Do Scenic Train Rides in Colorado

The Cumbres & Toltec steam engine pulls into Sublette Station.

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.
