When Brian and Jasmine Jones spent a “stay-and-play” weekend at the planned community of Wickenburg Ranch, a Trilogy Resort Community in Wickenburg, Ariz., they knew immediately that they had found their future retirement home. In that pre-pandemic time, the couple was assigned an “ambassador” to show them around, introduce them to people and answer questions. Brian was hooked from the moment he played the “Big Wick” golf course. “When Jasmine suggested looking at Wickenburg Ranch, I questioned why we would look way out there, practically […]

Photo Credit: asenat29/Wiki Commons I know you love me but PLEASE don’t buy me anything. We are full-time RVers and are packing up the motorhome after five months at the same site. It is amazing how much stuff we have out and how much we have accumulated in a short amount of time. It is also quite dismaying to find my “spots” for everything overflowing with over-abundant Amazon purchases and the wonderful presents that have been graciously gifted to me. Instead of buying groceries by […]

TT vs MH advantages/disadvantages

By |2021-02-14T01:06:19-06:00February 14th, 2021|Boating Activities|

I recently inherited a Class A DP and was wondering. Why do people prefer a Travel Trailer over a Motor Home or vice versa? My brother has a pretty large TT he pulls with a 1 ton and he told me that it was easier to stuff the family in his TV rather than towing a small car for his family of 6. He never considered a MH though, and it’s just me and my girlfriend. I plan to bring our 2 ebikes instead of using a toad. It […]

Home stager Anthea Baker photographed at her warehouse in Rosebank, Auckland. Home stager Ana Stevenson walks out of the four-bedroom house she’s just furnished and styled, and takes a breather on the street for a couple of minutes. Then she walks back past the glossy green buxus plant she placed by the front door, through the hallway of the 1920s bungalow in central Nelson – a house the owners and agent expect will sell for over $1 million – and looks at the place with fresh eyes. She walks […]

Hey everyone! Long time lurker – I hope this post is appropriate. I was having a thought the other day and wanted to float it out to the community here: I am a physical therapist. I’m in the process of shopping for my first RV, and of course I have daydreams of going full time someday. If I were to offer cash-based services in RV parks, would you be interested? Here’s what I imagine: I distribute a pamphlet around the park when I arrive describing what I offer, and […]

Social media communities help RVers live better

During these pandemic times, it’s easy to feel isolated. That’s why we appreciate plugging into the vast network of social media groups created for the tiny-home-on-wheels crowd. In the three years since we started rolling down this adventure-filled road, we’ve joined a number of RV-oriented groups on Facebook. We regularly devour reviews on Park Advisor , Campendium and HipCamp . We also follow various RV travel-type hashtags on Instagram. All provide endless sources of entertainment — who knew there were non-tip bowls for traveling doggies? — and an assortment […]

Mr. Mom

Mr. Mom — that’s me. In our home, we have what you call a modern living arrangement. My wife goes off to work while I cook meals, wash clothes and change a lot of poopie diapers. To be fair to my wife, she changes a lot of poopie diapers, too. She also takes the kids to swim lessons and music lessons. I guess that makes me a bust out as even a Mr. Mom since I can’t handle all the chores that women have generally taken care of for […]
