On the road again Goin’ places that I’ve never been Seein’ things that I may never see again And I can’t wait to get on the road again Boy!… I bet Willie Nelson never had traveling in the midst of a pandemic in mind when he wrote that song! So what are full time RVers […]
018: RVing up in La La Land…or summer camping season COVID-19 style!
Spontaneity and freedom are key attractions to travel by RV. That’s what we signed up for when we sold our house and excitedly began life as full time RVers in November 2018. Then COVID-19 hit in March of this year and the world as we know it disappeared in the space of a just a […]
017: My music, my life: a COVID-19 project
As I’m hunkered down in my 200 sqft house-on-wheels somewhere in the windy, hot desert of Southern California, one of my twice daily ‘exercise’ is scrolling through my Facebook feed to see what’s going on, what my Facebook friends are up to. I’ve been intrigued and amused by friends responding to the challenge of sharing […]
016: Carpe Diem! The new rallying cry for all, especially so for full time RVers
Several friends have been inquiring about how we’re doing and where we are. We are fine! We are healthy and for the time being, we’re hunkered down at Catalina Spa & RV Resort near Palm Springs, CA. Lots of space at our RV resort right now. Canadians, mostly from B.C. and Alberta, have gone home. I […]
015: What I’ve learned about myself this past year
We’ve been RVing full time for a little more than a year. I love it, we both do. But what exactly do I love about this lifestyle? After all, it can be… no… it is chaotic living in a 300 sq ft house-on-wheels. I’m often asked, “Do you miss living in a sticks & bricks house?” […]
014: Las Vegas… One Strip Removed!
Back in late October, in an effort to escape the weather—way-too-early-in-the-season, below freezing nights in Utah and just about everywhere else north of there—we found ourselves ‘escaping’ to Las Vegas for a week. Both of us had been to Sin City before, on numerous occasions—but on those visits we hadn’t strayed too from the Strip. […]
013: Utah: Mother Nature’s Disneyland
After six weeks of downtime spent with family and friends in Seattle (with a quick trip to Toronto & Montreal for me), we left our northwest base on October 11 bound for warmer climes — with a general itinerary through Southeast Washington State, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, leading to our final ‘winter’ destination in Desert […]
012: Thoroughbreds, Distilleries & Bluegrass — Knoxville TN and Lexington KY
Late July, we took Mr. Bond (our motorhome) and Moneypenny (our little tow car) to the verdant meadows of Southern Tennessee and Kentucky… where entire fields of bluegrass and horse pastures are mowed with managed precision! Knoxville, from Scruffy to Sleek We really, really liked Knoxville, Tennessee! The general impression from our 4-day visit […]
011: Blues, Country and Rock and Roll along the Mississippi Delta bi-ways
Today’s blog has a definite musical theme, as we drove Mr. Bond through East Arkansas, North Mississippi and Southern Tennessee. We were looking forward to catching live blues music in Memphis for instance, but we got a whole lot more in the bargain… Thanks to terrific local museums and old recording studios, we learned about […]
010: Arkansas, the Natural (and surprising) State!
We’ve been slowly developing our own “RVing style”. Something that full time RVers do talk about a lot when we meet or on online forums, “Take your time, try different things and you’ll discover what sort of RV life suits you best”. It takes a while to find your ‘niche’, find a way of life […]
