Our RV Life, Trip Planning,
Workamping & Retirement
We began with a plan
For us there are at least 3
thought on RVing and trip planning
One plan is
no plan. Starting out with perhaps a final destination in mind
but not really any thought to any stops along the way. Perfect
for the adventuresome spirit having no shortage of resources.
Another RVer might be totally destination oriented and only
interested in arriving at that destination as quickly as
possible, often making only the same tried and true overnight
stops as they had in previous years. It, too, has some merit but
not for those who want to see some of this great Country that
they have missed while working all those years.
hosts, Niki, Jack, and The Kids) are in a third group that likes
to combine a bit of both. Sure we have a final destination in
mind but are in no real rush to get there. For us the trip is
the fun but half that fun is planning the next trip. We plan new
routes with new campgrounds and take the time (at least 2 nights
in each campground) to sample the favorite restaurants suggested
to us by the locals and also to explore any nearby “must-see”
attractions they are especially proud of.
resources are not unlimited so our pre-planning helps us find
the best values for our retirement $$$.

Planning our next trip for May-
We are always planning
the next trip. Even as we are firming up plans for this Spring trip
North we are discussing ideas for our Fall trip back South. To us
the journey is the destination. There is so much in this great
Country to see and do.
We begin by deciding the "must-sees"
between our starting point and final "Workamping" Summer
destination. This time we definitely want a few days in Myrtle
Beach, SC, a stopover in Andy Griffith's "Mayberry" (Mt Airy, NC),
and also to visit a huge book sale in Lancaster, PA.
research the mileages, campground reviews, and other sights we might
like to see that will become part of our route. You'll find all of
the tools we use on our "Planning It" page. We look at the reviews
for the half-price campgrounds and choose them when they sound
decent and fall along our "flight path" and/or are near things we
want to see. How bad are the half-price campgrounds? In our
thousands of road miles so far we have only found 2 we positively
did not like. (Always pay attention to the reviews.)
for an average of 3 hours travel time each day, which puts us into a
new campground by mid-afternoon giving us some daylight to explore
our surroundings. We also decided long ago to plan at least 2 nights
at each campground.
Upon arrival we have 2 standard questions
of our new campground hosts - "What is the favorite local 'Mom and
Pop Restaurant'?" and "What is the place to visit that local people
are most proud of?" You'll be amazed at what you will find!

Creature Comforts vs that old sewer
Are you tired of fighting with the big slinky sewer hose and the
challenge of trying to match your system to the difficult dump sites
you encounter? Are you hesitant to hook up the electric macerators
you see advertised? We definitely were and found an easier and much
more painless solution.
