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?)

Baby, it's cold outside! It seems too early in the fall for zero degree weather, even here in Alaska. But we've been there a couple of times this week. We have just a bit of snow. And for the past few days, we've had brilliant sun.

As of now, it looks like we are staying in Alaska this winter.

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

RV Dreaming

Are you in the planning and dreaming stages, excitedly anticipating full-time RVing adventure? Well, we've added a new section to the RV Life and Travel where you can share your hopes and dreams.

We have two stories there for you to read now:

We Have a Plan for Full-timing

~ John and Carol (and Jass the Chocolate Lab) share: I got Carol hooked on camping big time with the help of her best friend and hubby last 4th. They invited us to join them at Fort Pickins, Florida, in their 5th wheel. Brand new and very nice, Carol thought I was joking when I said we would cook breakfast outside the first morning. Well we did; she loved it.

Hope to be a Full Timer

~ Phyllis shares: I don't even have an RV yet. I am going to look at one tomorrow. If I get it, then I am going to have to figure out the rest of my plan. I wonder if my cats will be okay traveling?

Already Living the Dream

We also have a section of stories on the website from people who are already living the dream, who are full-time RVers

~ J.R. Swaim shares: Suddenly, I awoke one day and it was a new century. My hair was gray and much of it had left my head. The rowdies were making their own lives far from our loving arms, and my wife and I found ourselves wandering around in a large and very empty home. My job was no longer a challenge; it had become the daily grind and unrewarding. I resolved it was to be a century of change.

Full-time RVing Tip

Food Souvenirs Don't Waste Space -- RVers like to buy souvenirs, just like other travelers do. But, where do you put them? One answer is to buy your souvenirs at the grocery store, farmer's market, or shop that sells foodstuffs. In Georgia, we bought Vidalia onion salad dressing. In Alaska, we bought salmon and reindeer sausage. In Louisiana, it was Cajun seasoning mix. If you want something that can be kept, look for foods that come in decorative tins that you can keep and use for something else.
