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?)

Bob has jury duty in Alaska for the entire month of November. So, it looks like we will stick around here at least until after Thanksgiving. (Yes, you remember correctly: I had jury duty in August.)

We've had a request to include more travel stories from other RVers in the newsletter. I agree that's it a good idea. So, send us a story about places you've visited, your favorite campgrounds, or how you are otherwise enjoying your RV life and travels. We'll share them in the newsletter and on the website.

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

RVing Tip

Thermos bottles aren't just for keeping coffee hot on travel days. After you have your morning coffee, pour what's left into a Thermos bottle to keep it hot for later in the day.

Watkins Products and Summit Group Bus. Info

I grew up in Minnesota, where they make Watkins vanilla, pain liniments, and 300 or so other products. As a kid, we used them in our home every day. Bob and I still use Watkins products every day. We also now sell them. We need to earn a living, even while we are RVing. Part of our income comes from my being an Independent Watkins Associate (ID #362289) within the Summit Group. If you could use an extra couple hundred dollars a month, it might be something you'd want to do, too.

Bob's Article

The Magic of Solar Panels: Bob's True Fairytale RVing and Photovoltaics Story

Solar panels play a big part in our full-time RVing independence. Here's Bob's story -- written as a fairytale, but very true -- of how we became full-timers and how we started with a solar system. He shares some background into our personal lives that I don't think we've shared with our readers before.

~~ Go to the RV Life and Travel website to read the rest of Bob's article.

RV Life and Travel Tip

Instead of storing extra washcloths in a linen cabinet, I use them as cushioning between stacked kitchen items. They quiet rattles and prevent chips and scratches when used between nesting bowls and saucepans.
