Where In the World Are Coleen and Bob?
(And Just What Are They Doing?)

I'm celebrating my birthday today. To all of you who knew this because you remembered from years past or saw it on Facebook and sent birthday wishes…thank you!

You'll notice this issue is mainly questions and answers – and that Bob is the one who answered all of them. Suppose this has anything to do with my birthday?

We hope your New Year has gotten off to a fantastic start. If you are a snowbird or are RVing in cold country this winter, we'd love to hear about your travels. If your RV is put away for the winter, be an "arm-chair" RVer now, by reading some of the stories on our website.

Wherever you are in your travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Coleen

RVing Tips

Put a tension closet rod in the shower to use as an extra towel bar.

Put a second tension closet rod in the shower to use as a drying line for rain coats, swimming suits, wet dog leashes, or your hand washed laundry. It gets them out of the way and the drips aren't a problem.

Caterpillar or Cummins?

Locating Gas Stations

~~ Joan asks: How do you find gas stations? We are looking for gas stations with easy access.

~~ Bob answered in part: If you would like to know in advance of hitting the road, you can get a variety of printed guides. These guides differ, but usually offer information about location, the different services offered, including RV fuel lanes, and dump stations available.

Your RV Life and Travel Questions Answered

RV Air Quality Concern

~~ Bill writes: I'm writing about the air quality inside the RV. I'm concerned about the chemicals that may provide smells, (i.e. formaldehyde) and perhaps present danger to overall health, due to construction materials used in RV construction.

~~ Bob answered in part: Bill, I'll tell you right off the bat, I'm not an expert on the subject. The initial smell in a new RV wouldn't give me any health concerns, unless I had a particular sensitivity, allergy, or respiratory problem.

I'm under the impression that after a month or two, the smells are just smells. The volatiles in the glues and other materials off-gas the dangerous chemicals and dissipate rapidly after the unit is built.
