The new Jeep has landed…

So our new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (JLUR) finally arrived after just 3 1/2 weeks from order placement until delivery. Here are some of the pictures of the as delivered Jeep… My Inspiration for the color choice…from my history… So first up was putting on a new bumper and I went with a similar model to the one I had on the last Jeep, a Rockhard 4×4 Patriot, mid length Aluminum bumper set up for flat towing. I also added…

We think by this summer we should have got into a position to get back on the road and…

Let’s talk about Budgets

Let’s talk about Budgets

A couple of folks have asked about the costs to full time in an RV and I figured that with two years under our belt, I know have a decent Idea of the costs for this lifestyle.  A little disclaimer here, most of this stuff is really up to you, how connected do you want to remain, how nice of places do you want to stay in, how often do you want to move since longer stays are normally discounted…

Change in Plans…

As we entered 2019, we moved to just south of Galveston, Texas at Jamaica Beach RV Park, right on the gulf. It is not as nice as Gulf Waters and I don’t have a huge patio area to work on projects, but it is only 1/2 the cost so it is a large bang for the buck RV Park. While here, we went over last year’s budget verses our expenses and it was not a good thing. The townhouse has…

2 years and counting…

OK, we have hit the two year milestone, and I wanted Cathy to contribute the summary and I’ll finish up with photo’s over the two years…. Wow! It has been quite an amazing two years of travel around the beautiful USA and Canada. So many people want to know how we like it?

Catching up with U-Tube Creators, Derek and Hannah

Some we like to have fires in the early evening, but more and more places will on longer allow wood fires, so I finally broke down and got a propane fire pit.  I’ll just have to carry a propane tank, even though nothing on the coach runs on Propane, but at least we can have an evening fire…   While we were in Benson, we got a chance to have dinner with some you tube folks we have followed.  Derek…

Joshua Tree to Benson Arizona…

After a long stay in Joshua Tree where we celebrated Mom’s 90th birthday, I got some work done on the house, we both got all of our medical and dental needs completed, and before you knew it, it was time to hit the road again.   Some of the work I was able to accomplish was to work on my sisters car…installed new headlights, replaced the automatic window regulators, and a little clean up of the plastic.  On the Jeep we…
