  1. The state of the RV Industry.

    A little background on me. I have camped most of my life. From a Starcraft tent trailer to miscellaneous 19-23 footers of my parents, to my TrailManor, Trail Lite, Starwood, Starcraft, WindJammer, and now my Solitude. I've got over 100K miles towing, and now 16 of my own years of owning RV's. As you can tell, I'm a bit of a junkie...not just for RV's, but also for information. I started my first RV site in 1998, and still own it today. I run sites because I love the information flow. That ...

  2. First Winter as Snowbirds

    I thought I'd start this blogging effort to share our experiences as First Time Snowbirds in Florida. It has been our dream/plan for a long time to do this every year as long as we're able to travel. I retired 8 years ago, but continued to work part-time until recently.

  5. Oregon

    Visited some folks in this one so wasn't catching a lot of video. Got some. Oregon, huh. Wild with spectacular coastline. No, it doesn't rain as much as everyone says and it didn't rain at all while we were there (that I can recall). Surprisingly comfortable inland, but beach areas cold this time of year. Water very cold.
