Are You a Full-time RVer?

I was at work today (very slow...a total of four tables!) and something out the window caught my eye. I couldn't help but to notice it. In the deserted parking lot outside, an RV pulled up with its motor running. I so wanted them to come inside, and not because of the future tip they might leave me, but because I so wanted to talk to them and ask them questions. Were they a fulltime RVer? What did they like about traveling via RV? Do they have Internet on the RV? Very important questions.

I never got my chance. After standing at the window for a really long time, I watched them finally roll away. Gone. Into the oblivion from my standpoint; but for them, into a life I would die to have.

The guy who was working with me thought I was crazy as I went around the restaurant singing, "I'm in love! I'm in love!" They think I'm loonier than a looney-tune anyway.

Man. It was incredible. As I was looking out the window, I wondered what they were doing inside. What did it look like inside and what was that incredible feeling they must be feeling right now? Did they feel cooped up or was that all part of the experience?

I'm going to start adding some links in the right-hand sidebar of people who blog about RVing so I don't forget to stop by and visit. I feel that blogs give me more of a first-hand look as to what is involved. Better than any travel magazine could, that's for sure.

If you are a fulltime RVer and would like me to visit your blog, leave your url in the comment box. I would surely love to visit your blog and find out what it's really like to give up everything and take to the open road. One day I hope to be blogging about the very same thing. Here's to wishing and making dreams come true...here, here!

  4. Dorothy - you need to sign up for the Writersweekly.com newesletter! The editor/publisher of that and her family regularly take jaunts across the country in their RV and she then works out of it - computer and all. (Her name - Angela Hoy) Signing up for her newsletter wouldn't be a bad idea for you to get listed there too for other things -like your promotions and publishing info and stuff.

  5. I am not a fulltimer but have been an extended-timer and you have followed many of my trips. Life does change and I am not sure exactly where mine will be going as I marry my new love and we try out our brand new motor home to see how well she likes that style of traveling. I am guessing that we will not be gone on as long of trips as mine in the past were, but it is still RVing and a great way to travel and see the country.

    You have read my blog for quite awhile and there are links there to many others I know who are for the most part, fulltimers. Some even pay at least part of their expenses by writing for various publications as well as books on the subject.
