Rambling RV Rat (Added 8/17/19) "My name is PoPo-G-G-O, and I'm a Rambling RV Rat. I’ve been RVing full-time these last few years with my human Mom and Dad, our Country Campground Cat, and our Frolicking Full-timing Fish. After planning for retirement for 14 years, my family sold our “sticks and bricks” home with our half acre of property. We sold or donated most of our material possessions. We were blessed to experience an epiphany many years ago—God provides us with the basic necessities for our existence. Everything else is “nice to have” but is not required to experience happiness or contentment. We now live a more minimalist lifestyle. We still have everything we truly need and the few material possessions we truly want. We loaded the motorcycles into our custom-built truck, hooked up our home on wheels, and now travel around this great country. Whether staying somewhere for six months, visiting for just six days, or just stopping over for 6 hours, we experience a new sensational sunrise and a different breath-taking “backyard” view everywhere we go!"
Boger's Trip & Adventure Menu (Added 8/16/19) Not a lot of information about the Bogers, but some great trip journals.

We sold our house, bought a big pickup and camper and began a great adventure of traveling and living in our RV full time. This website is where we share our travels with all who are interested. You’ll find campground reviews, photos of some of the interesting places we visit, and general fulltime RVing information here. As a librarian, Jackie sometimes finds great library ideas that she shares here. You’ll also find notes on various RV fixup/upgrade projects we do to camper."

Under Kitty Supervision (Added 4/19/18) Heck if I know what I’m doing here, so bear with me until I figure it all out. With this blog I plan to tell you about (not in any particular order): My cats – that’s a given, Trips in the trailer, Latest stamping projects, Latest sewing project, Shows I’m vending at, Anything else I feel like. It won’t include: Weight I’ve lost (yeah, probably not happening any time soon), High school reunions (been there, done that, not again), Favorite whatevers (who cares anyway?), Food I’ve eaten or will eat (boring!). Thanks! See you soon (I hope!)
Lauren & Barbara (Added 4/19/18) We have known each other virtually all our lives - born in the same hospital (Barbara a year after Lauren), attended the same hometown schools and church, etc. Although we were friends in this small town 40 miles west of Chicago we did not date until our latter college years. We married on February 2, 1963 and, after a series of short time moves we lived in Appleton, WI for 3 years, Madison, WI for 4 years and Minneapolis area for 25 years. Retirement in 1995 (got out early - never regretted it!) first brought us to Estes Park, CO where we built a wonderful home on an acre overlooking Lake Estes to the Continental Divide in Rocky Mountain National Park. The nearly 8000 foot altitude did not agree with us - although we did a lot of hiking up to 14,000 feet. Having been in "Cold" all our lives, in March 2003 we moved to "Warm" here in Sahuarita, AZ which is 20 miles south of Tucson and 38 miles from the Mexican border. We live in a retirement community called Quail Creek and love it here. We have a 34 foot 5th wheel trailer / one ton diesel truck and love to travel in it in the western United States and Canada. While at home we volunteer at The Animal League of Green Valley - a no kill rescue facility for dogs and cats and other things as well.

Dawns bloggy blog (Added 5/22/17) Dawn's Bio: "I started this blog a few years back so that my family could see what we are doing and seeing as we travel around the USA. Jeff and I have been Full time Motorhoming for over nine years now and still loving it. When and where we will settle down is still a mystery to us. But for now the nomadic lifestye is great. We love hiking, birding, mushrooming, shelling, rocking, and hanging out in the great outdoors and spending time with family and friends."
JenEric Ramblings (Added 5/22/17) Their bio: "This blog is dedicated to the ramblings, both literal and figurative, of Eric Udell & Jeanette Hobbs. [Thanks to Mo for sending us a Christmas card addressed to “JenAir” which provided the inspiration for the whole JenEric (pronounced generic) “product” line. Mo-ists of the world unite!] What made us decide to ramble? After years of being frustrated by only 2 or 3 weeks of vacation each year, we decided there had to be a better way. Inspired by a wave of younger travel bloggers who work while they travel, we made it happen and hit the road full time in December of 2014. While we’re not retired, our new lifestyle allows us to work far fewer hours and enjoy life far more. We’ve never looked back. Jeanette is the primary blog author, although Eric posts techy/geeky things from time to time. We travel in a 29′ Holiday Rambler Traveler (Class A) with our 2 cats: Karma and Mojo. They do absolutely nothing to contribute to the blog or to the bank account but they’re cute, so we’ve let them stick around. We also spend a lot of time 4-wheeling in our Jeep Liberty, aka Lana."
Look, Mom, We're Camping (Added 1/6/17) "Our travels, mostly in our small Fun Finder trailer". Lots of great photos of Dan's travels.

RV Nerds (Added 5/25/16) "John is a nuclear engineer who spends his free time training for Ironman triathlons, building gadgets that sometimes work, and trying to break Milo ( a rather large labradoodle) of his bad habits. He began his RV experience when he was between apartments one year, and his friend and former colleague offered to let him stay at his place. That friend turned out to be Dave. When not BS-ing, John and Dave found that they both enjoyed building gadgets that improved their RV experience. John currently lives in an RV-sized apartment in Austria.
Travels With the Southwest Dude (Added 5/25/16) Lots of photos & information about the Southwest, including a regularly updated blog.
AJC Media (Added 2/17/16) "Alex Jackson is the name, and adventure is my game. I'm an amateur photographer/ cinematographer/ artist trying to get a foothold in the art world. I was born on the 5th day of September, year 1988 in the small town of Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. At 5 years of age I moved with my parents and little brother to Summerland, Okanagon BC, 4 years later we all found ourselves in Abbotsford, BC where I currently reside with my beautiful wife Alison. I've always been a creative person, but I've had my fingers in a variety of different pots of paint, from building vehicles, welding, 3D modelling etc. I'm happiest when I can design and build but recently I've taken to photo and video and it's really beginning to capture my imagination. At the time I don't really know where I'm going with all this artist stuff, but I'm hoping it takes me somewhere. Not having a clear plan doesn't bother me, remaining stagnant does, so I press on."
Rusty's Big Adventure (Added 10/6/15) Nancy's blog is told in the words of Rusty the cat. They travel in a Casita & include a trip to Alaska.
Birding RVers (Added 3/3/15) "We are Grant and Kathy Webb, welcome to our website! With careful planning we retired in our mid-50s on January 1, 2008 so, that we could explore the parks, monuments and wildlife refuges of North America. This blog is intended to keep family, friends and anyone else interested up to date with where we are and what we are doing. This will not be a daily diary; we will update as time and Internet connections permit. Our hobbies are bird watching and astronomy so, if you know of a great birding spot or dark sky site in an area we are visiting please let us know."
The Cynical Sailor & His Salty Sidekick (Added 3/3/15) "Scott is the cynical sailor and the skipper of our boat and Ellen is his (non-cynical) salty sidekick and crew. Scott has a wicked, sarcastic sense of humor and makes Ellen laugh. Scott likes Ellen because she finds his sarcastic humor entertaining. Scott is a native of North Dakota and, although he is of Scandinavian descent and has Viking blood, his first time sailing wasn't until 2005. Ellen grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and although Lake Erie was just on her doorstep, she had never been on a sailboat until 2008." More about them on their "About Us" page.
US Backroads (Added 1/27/15) While I already have a link to this site on my RV Information, Vladimir has enough information about his travels that is is worth adding to the general blog pages.

Towing Miss Trilly (Added 1/3/14) "Herein lie the tales of we two vagabonds, Clark & 9ah. We travel aboard our custom homebuilt trimaran for six months each year, but this blog is about the months we are NOT aboard our boat. In other words, when we are on terra firma. We like to travel in small vehicles, be it our sailboat or one of our two trailers. The first, a vintage 1948 Higgins Camp Trailer, allows us to travel overland to off-the-beaten-track sorts of places. Higgins offers little in the way of comfort save for keeping us out of the wind and rain. Our second (newly acquired) trailer is a 1979 Trillium 4500 fiberglass “egg” with propane heat, 3-way fridge, and 3-burner cooktop. Miss Trilly is all-original and in very good working order, however we can’t help but bring her 70s upholstery into the 21st century and perform needed rehab work. She may be getting a new axle with a bit higher ground clearance."
Danes on Tour (Added 1/3/14) "We are 2 retired Danish people living in Denmark. Our place is approximately a 1 hour drive outside the center of Copenhagen. ...

Welcome to Our Web Site (Added 4/26/12) From Joe & Pat - "This site was started as an attempt to get our old photos and slides of the last 49 years, or so, organized and viewable by the family and others. Joe made his first driving trip to Alaska in 1962, ending up in Nome and moving back to Nome in 1964. Pat moved to Galena, Alaska in 1970. Between both of us we have lived in Nome, Marshall, Galena, Koyukuk, Tanana and Nenana for about 25 years. Over those years we tried to visit as much of the state as possible by air, boat or the road system. In 1989 we moved to Ouray, Colorado and in 1998 to Florida. As of 2011, we have driven the Alaska Highway thirteen (13) round trips by RVs. Round trip #13 took place the summer of 2011. Other years, while living in Alaska, we would often take a couple of weeks and take our RV from Alaska to Whitehorse, then up to Dawson for a few more days and back to Alaska, fishing most of the streams and lakes along the way."

Aluminum Bliss (Added 10/31/09) From their very complete "About Us" Click to read more - Chris - "In high school, Chris was nominated by his teachers for the Dreamers and Doers Award. Fifteen years later, Chris is still dreaming and doing extraordinary things. From organizing and executing an elaborate wedding proposal (if you haven’t heard the story – just ask – it’s pretty impressive) to selling all of our possessions and moving into an Airstream, his dreams and actions make for an adventurous, fun, spontaneous, and exciting life." and Lani "Lani was once told by a former boss that she has the patience of a saint. For anyone who knows Chris knows that it takes a patient person to be married to him. While she did not receive any awards for being a dreamer and a doer (shocking), Lani is almost always supportive of Chris’ big and crazy ideas. In return, Chris is patient with her constant worries and panic attacks and ensures that she leads an adventure-filled life. Together, Chris and Lani are a perfect team."
Geogypsy (Added 7/11/09) From her about me: "I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997.

Gypsy G-Mas: Life on the Road (Added 5/23/10) "We are Connie and Tracy, a.k.a "G-Ma C" and "G-Ma T" to Scooter and Ruby. We are in our mid-40's and have been living the traditional American dream of home ownership, lots of toys and careers to pay for it all. But as this way of life has provided less and less satisfaction over the years, we decided that the time had come to make feeding our souls a priority. Pursuing our long-time dream of living a nomadic lifestyle, in March 2010, we sold our house and most of our personal belongings, resigned from our careers and hit the road in our RV, along with our 80-pound dog, Hunter, and 20-pound cat, Jasper. Although we don't expect to become monetarily wealthy, we have no doubt we will be much richer than we could ever imagine. We have no idea what lies ahead but please follow us on our journey to unknown adventures!"
I Carry Beretta (Added 1/20/11) "Hello, I am John and this is a record of my travels and my pictures of places we have been. I love to go new places and try to capture them in photos. I know that it is hard to do justice to the various places but I will try to give you the sense of the place so you can put it on your list of places to go. I will also have a regular postings of the current photo projects I am working on at home. I hope to share with you the joy that I find in creating pictures to share. I have one other hobby as well. I love the shooting sports, thus my blog name. It would be kind of boring only looking at pictures of me shooting or seeing clay targets break but I will also be discussing various event in this area as well. I shoot a Beretta over-under 682 Gold shotgun as well as a few others. I love to merge my interests and shoot when I am traveling in new areas and see new courses. Thus the name of my blog is "I Carry Beretta..." Use the menu to check his travel blog.
Mothership RV (Added 8/3/10) "John & Sandy's blog about travels and adventures we have with our motorhome. We named our RV Mothership because of it's size and because a smaller "ship" detaches from it to explore the surrounding area. If you are interested in reading about our adventures both good and bad please read on."
My Bad Diet (Added 2/1/11) A combination of cooking & RVing. Noah & Nancy's About Us "My Wife, Nancy, and I are full-time RV'ers. In spring of 2010 some events caused Nancy and I to re-evaluate our lives. We were running a race on a treadmill, as so many people do, and it wasn't fulfilling our lives. We needed a change. So we sold our home and most all of our stuff and began a journey of simplification. We bought a 37' Winnebago Vectra and moved in with our pets, Luke and Leia, our two greyhounds, and Ferris and Jeannie, our two one-eyed Maine Coon Cats, and headed out on the open road."
America by RV (Added 12/14/10) Darren & Joyce's About Us: "Join us as we slowly travel and explore our beautiful country. We are traveling and living full time in our 2010 36 ft Carriage Cameo (35SB3) fifth wheel as we take time to see the sights, meet the people and get to know this extraordinary country of ours. We've been on the road since October of 2009 and we expect our adventure will occupy us for a few years. Our two Boxers, Maggie and Rico will challenge us throughout our new lifestyle! I'm in my late 40's and retired September 11, 2009 as a Sergeant with The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office in Florida. Before that I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force following a family tradition. My wife, Joyce and I are blessed with a beautiful daughter, Ashley who recently graduated from the University of Florida after only 3 years! Go Gators! She married another graduate, Andrew and now he's pursuing his training as an Officer in the U.S. Navy. We sold our home of 15 years in a buyer's market, February of 2009. The majority of our furniture and furnishing went to Ashley and Andrew."
Our Journey (Added 9/1/08) We started this journal way back in July 2005 when we sold our home in Coon Rapids, Minnesota and started traveling full time in our 2005 Montana 39' 5th wheel pulled by our brand new 2005 Ford 350 Diesel truck that matched the beautiful red sunset of the graphics on our Tana... For a long time, we just had one journal but it is getting hard to see the maps since we have crossed the same places so many times so we are adding another journal. The first one that we always called "Our Journey" will be renamed "The Beginning" and as we add new journeys we will name them as we go along... Probably by the year that we are traveling in but for now we are adding "Newfoundland".
Happy Trails (Added 3/12/12) "Not all who wander are not lost!, we love the southwest, United States. Chuck and I love to travel. We are currently workampers. Chuck and I love to visit new places.

WanderMan (Added 1/4/12) "Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'll be writing about a variety of RV topics, from adventures and misadventures to improvements and bleeding edge technology for our rigs we'll explore it all. First, a bit of history; over the last 3 years I've purchased, restored and modified an "Orphan" Class A RV. Namely a 1991 Gardner Pacific Aero Cruiser 23RBa. There weren't all that many produced between 1989 and 1992 of this compact, low profile (23'8" length - 99" height) coach. I'll be sharing my trials and errors from these and the many more mods I have planned." His blog includes a full description of his solar installation.
Camping in PA (Added 1/4/12) "My name is Mike and my wife's name is Kim. We have been RVing/camping together since 2005, but as kids, we camped with our parents. Now we are passing on the memories to our 8 year old daughter. We usually have 260 lbs of dog with us. Zeus, a Bull Mastiff and Rebel, a Bloodhound mix, who is a Hurricane Katrina survivor. We live in Oley, Pa, and most of our camping trips are just weekend trips. My plan is to keep a running blog on our trips and various camping/ rving experiences. We'll see how that works. Hopefully, someone will find some of my blogs interesting, but if not, I'll have something to read in the off season. Our current RV is a 2005 Sunseeker Class C motorhome. Nothing fancy. We had travel trailers in the past, but with relatives in Kansas and numerous trips to see them, a motorhome just made more sense for us. It also made for a great trip to Disney World, which I have a blog about.
My Scamp Egg Camper (Added 12/26/11) From Gary's homepage: "Several years ago I got it in my head that I wanted a small fiberglass RV. An Eriba Puck was my dream camper. The realities of finding one here in the USA opened my eyes to other possibilities..." He has a 1987 13' Scamp.

Simple Living and Simple Travel (Added 9/23/11) Sebastian started his blog in July, 2006.

Then I go back and add to the posting as things occur, I learn more about the area, and take more pictures. So if you are following my roaming, each posting isn't finished until I post the new-titled entry. It can be worth rereading the last posting. Even then I tend to go back over postings and rewrite or add text."

The Don Pad (Added 8/16/11) "I am a musician, an entertainer, a teacher. I didn't choose it, it just happened that way. I have shared the stage with some of the greatest entertainers in America yet my family thinks I am going through a phase. It is difficult when people do not understand that some folks don't "fit" into life the way they do. My sweet Mom and Pop indulged all three of their sons, even when they did not completely understand. But some of my family and friends think this RV lifestyle is a bit strange. Here's a thought for ya: those who march to a different drummer are usually fairly content in their lifestyle, even if they live in an aluminum tube or a fiberglass egg. Now where did I put that road map??"
