What's new on RV-Life-and-Travel.com ... Updates on our RV travels, articles we write about full-time RVing, articles we write about RVs and RV maintenance, recreational vehicle industry news, our RVing life blog updates…when we post something new on the RV Life and Travel website, we post a notice of it here and link to it, so it is easy for you to find.

Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor
Which came first -- the work or the RV? Well, it depends on the working RVer. Some folks decide they want to be full-time RVers, and later decide to get a campground job or do some other work. However, more -- I think a great many more -- are RVing because the RV is a convenience or solves work-related concerns.
A new Workers On Wheels Newsletter out today, to help you find work to support your RV life and travels. Enjoy!

National Park Week: Three Bookmark-Worthy Resources to Help You Plan
Washington, D.C. (March 20, 2018) While you’re beginning to daydream about warmer, longer days, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation are preparing to help you #FindYourPark during National Park Week, April 21 through April 29. Carrying the theme “Park Stars” – which celebrates everything from starry skies to superstar volunteers – parks, programs and partners nationwide invite people everywhere to explore stories, experiences, and sites that brighten the National Park System.
“National parks are some of the best places to see stars in the world,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Dan Smith. “Some illuminate the night sky and others are unique features such as panoramic vistas, otherworldly geological formations, historic artifacts and homes, and majestic wildlife. During National Park Week, enjoy a star party, junior ranger program, ranger hike, or other activity that enlightens the senses.”
“Explore the many different ways you can experience national parks, while also contributing to the parks community,” said National Park Foundation President Will Shafroth. “You can volunteer at a local park event, share a park visit with a loved one, or donate to help preserve these national treasures.”
Here are three bookmark-worthy resources to help you plan your National Park Week adventures:

Whether you're a hiker, a historican, a romantic, a family with friends, a crowd-lover, or someone seeking solitude, the National Park Foundation's FREE Owner's Guide series is jam-packed with ideas to help you plan your National Park Week adventure!
We've been helping RVers earn a living as they travel for 25 years. We don't write about theory. We aren't some slick corporate executives or fancy HR officers. We are ordinary people, who learned how to make it as full-time RVers, how to work real jobs for real people. And, we pass our experiences on to you.
Come along on our travels! Rhythm and Ribs was a blast. The motorhome transmission died. Bob shares his cheap and easy way to level an RV. Plus updates and tips.

Leveling our RV, whether we are in our travel trailer or motorhome, is a simple procedure. It's quick, easy, and I didn't spend any money to buy leveling blocks. You may want a more high-tech way to level your rig, but this basic method works efficiently for us.
RV transmission repairs in Knoxville -- that's what followed after the tow truck dropped us and our motorhome off at the transmission shop. When I last left you all, we had just used our road service to tow us to Atkins and Son Transmission in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Practical advice for working RVers! That's what you'll find in the Workers On Wheels Newsletter each week.

Instead, we fill each issue with useful tips, job ideas, resources, and information that comes from real RVers.
We sent out a new issue of the RV Life and Travel Newsletter last night. If you subscribe (it's free!) you should have it in your email box. It is also posted for you to read online.
If you’re out on the road long enough, no matter how careful you are, no matter how new you RV is, or no matter how well you maintain your equipment, you’ll likely have breakdowns, and need to be towed in.

Steam shows, threshing bees, engine shows, and old time power shows are some of our favorite events to attend while RVing. There are numerous old time demonstrations and farm collector shows.
Tools and repair supplies are usually the first things we put into our RVs. You never know when you are going to have a mechanical breakdown or have something go wrong in the RV that needs fixing.
Fishing and RVing ... Do fisherman RV or do RVers fish? We decide where to travel based on what's biting. For the sport, the catch, or as a job, you'll often find us with a line in the water.
