MY RV ADVENTURES


"Security is mostly a superstition…Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." - Helen Keller


Before I began my rv adventures, before I even bought my RV, I joined the Good Sam Club on the advice of one of my RVing acquaintances. It was the best advice I ever received and I never regretted it!

Once started on my rv adventures in the fall of 2007, I kept a written rv journal, and soon decided to start this website and record my travels here. My intention is to add information that will be helpful to any of you that are inspired to try out this RVing lifestyle.

I bought my rv in the spring of 2007, took a couple of short trips, had a few rv mis-adventures, and finally took the leap that fall, leaving NC and my business for three months, setting off across the US with my cat, Bijou, and landing at the LoW-HI RV Ranch (LoW stands for Loners on Wheels) in Deming, NM. There I met Robert, who had set off from MN about the same time and landed in the same place. For the next three years my rv adventures were shared with Robert.

Until April 2010, we had two RVs, though we lived primarily in mine and often left his behind when we took trips. Then, he decided to sell his. Maybe not such a great idea!

Boondockers Welcome - Be My Guest RV Parking

Here's a network of people around the world who are willing to offer free parking to RVers for a night or two on their own property. This is a wonderful idea for all those who love boondocking. It costs $24.95/year to become a member so you can use the services – discounted to $19.95/year if you can offer free parking on your property in return.


Good Sam Travel Assist

Having a Kindle meant I always had a book to read without adding extra weight or using precious space in my RV. Buying it was one of the smartest things I ever did!
