I began tent camping as a Boy Scout and van camping as a young father and ended up working in the RV industry in rentals and sales, followed by writing and photographing articles for RV magazines, teaching RVing seminars, classes, and at rallies while living the ultimate dream of taking to the open road as a fulltime RVer.
After our last son entered college I retired, we sold our house, got rid of most of our stuff (no storage unit for us), and Lynn and I moved into our Bounder motorhome and set off on a two-year Explore America trip. After seventeen years we were still finding new places, new campsites, and new adventures. Where had the time gone?
We met great people, locals and RV travelers alike, resulting in life-long friendships. We found places we enjoyed so much that our "passing through" one-nighters turned into months. We've been stuck on a Texas Gulf beach with an incoming tide, surrounded by illegals on the Arizona - Mexico border, confronted by a drunken boondocker waving a gun, and sputtered out of propane on Christmas Day in the Arizona desert with a half-cooked turkey in the oven. And we also had a few not-so-good times.
This book includes some of these reminiscences along with the relevant take-away lessons we learned, so that you won’t have to--but probably will anyway--make the same errors. And that's all right. Life is lived for its experiences. I have highlighted those “Ah ha” moments with "Bob's RV Short Tips" that I hope you can use for a more enjoyable, satisfying, and fun RV Lifestyle.
