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?)

I was reviewing some files and came across this note:

Why we’re getting the trailer we’re getting…

Three basic requirements for our new trailer:
1. It needs to be shorter than 26 feet.
2. It needs to have a cargo carrying capacity of at least 3000 pounds.
3. It needs to have a floor plan we can adapt to our use and liking.

Why we chose the dealership we did:
1. They carry a line of trailers that meet the three requirements above.
2. They are in close proximity to us.
3. We like the salesperson.

That referenced a brand new trailer we bought in 2001, a 24 foot Wildwood by Forest River. It has proven to be an excellent trailer. We still have it. If we were to buy a new trailer tomorrow, we'd probably use those same guidelines.

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

Airport Park Campground, a Concordia, Kansas, City Park

The small towns in Kansas have some wonderful city campgrounds. One of those we stayed at when we came back from Texas a couple years ago was the Airport Park Campground in Concordia. Read about it and see pictures on our website.

A Business to Take on the Road

Whether your money concern is too much income or not enough income, having a business you can take on the road with you may help. There's earning potential and there's the potential for tax deductions. I recommend our Summit Group business because it is flexible and you can do it wherever your travels take you.

Storage Facility Choices - Dealing with What Doesn't Fit in the RV

Storage facility options… What should you do with all your stuff? You're about to go full-time RVing and can't take it all with you. Where should you store it? Should you rent a self storage unit?

As we prepared for full-time RVing, we faced those questions, too. We'd been accumulating things for years. We lived in a fairly good size house and Bob had a workshop. The one thing we knew for sure was that it wasn't all going to fit into the recreational vehicle that was about to become our new home.

Here are three articles on what we did with our stuff, along with our experience with storage facilities.

RV Life and Travel Tip

My recipe for a neat and organized RV:

1. Have a place for everything.
2. Put everything in its place.
3. Only have things that you want, use, or specifically need.

Positive RVing Attitudes

You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief that you can't have it. ~ Robert Anthony

Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves. ~ Walter Anderson
