Life As We Live It ... on the road with Coleen and Bob

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

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

We often hear from people who wonder what full-time RVers do all day. There's the normal everyday stuff such as taking care of household chores and work. Besides that…well, this issue of the newsletter gives you a glimpse of some of the things we do. And, for those of you who have been asking for pictures, there are photos posted with each article.

I didn't realize I was so far behind in posting articles and pictures. Yikes! I have notebooks full of notes and files full of photos to add to the website. Much more to come in the weeks ahead.

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

Fishing from a Pier Can be Inexpensive and a Lot of Fun for RVers

Now that you've found a pier, when's the best time to fish? Some people study charts of the phases of the moon. Some people use the monthly tide charts, studying the highs, lows, and peaks. Others watch the weather maps, analyzing the high and low fronts and systems. I just go when I have the time and feel like it.

~~ Find out why Bob doesn't fish the piers on weekends and read the rest of this article on the RV Life and Travel website.
