RE: My full time adventure, road notes...

Fulltime now in our 14th year. We are firmly in the never over 200 camp and in fact probably have averaged closer to 150. We didn't adopt this lifestyle to rush anywhere.

RE: Movement in Camper

When we're sitting for more than a couple of days, we deploy the requisite jacks. Do we experience slight movement? Of course. Does it bother us? NO! After 13 years of fulltiming, on the rare occasion that we have to spend a night on a firm foundation, we actually miss the sublime motion and neither of us sleeps well.

RE: Unleashed dogs in campgrounds: A solution

Spraying, poisoning, shooting. It's all easy when you are an: I just stole that one! ROFL

RE: How long full timing?

I don't see any reason to have a statistics lesson over it. You are right. My apologies to the OP.

RE: origin of Boondock

"remote" simply does not exist I respectfully disagree. The majority of the landmass of the US is uninhabited. Of the 318.6 million people, 82% live in or near cities and towns. Source: NatGeo We recently backpacked 19 miles off-trail in NM. I'd be willing to bet my left, uh, uh, ear!, that we were the only humans within a 19 mile radius or 1134 square miles. There are LOTS 'o 'boondocks' out here. You just need to get out more. :)

RE: How long full timing?

I trust that you do understand that the mean is not the "average". Just sayin'

RE: Rant about Rants

My biggest beef on forums is with those that reply and include 15 or 20 reply's before their one line reply.Oh.. you mean all the quoting? It does get tiresome. So do few-word comments that are largely meaningless and contribute nothing except to a post count that doesn't mean a thing except, apparently to the poster.

RE: Do you ever get asked, WHY ?

We had to think long about this. DW told her 2 grown kids everything they needed to know when we made the decision. They were happy for us and had no questions. In now our 14th year on the road we have NEVER been asked that question. Many questions about HOW?, but never WHY?.

RE: How long full timing?

There are fulltime travelers and those living in an RV parked somewhere who rarely ever move but still call themselves 'fulltimers'. We are in the traveling category for 13 years 4 months and have treasured nearly every moment of it.

RE: Please leave it at home!

I'd notify the powers that be. 2 hours later if there was no change, with no confrontation, no visible change in his setup, he would be down. He'd never figure out why. Ain't tenologee wunerful?

RE: Number Of Hours?

It really is very simple. We have been on the road now in our 14th year. We workamped in many venues about 6 months a year and spent the other 6 traveling. We haven't hated it and have had many wonderful experiences. What would you trade for watching bear catching salmon amidst a setting replete with northern lights that most people can only dream of and still get paid $10/ hour plus a free site with all amenities? (we did it in AK for 5 months) Would you trade it for $5/hour? Would you trade it for nothing but site? We've done all of the above and have rarely been disappointed. As far as a cap, no. We've worked as many as 20 hours each for nothing more than full hookups because it was where we wanted to be, when we wanted to be there and doing what we enjoyed doing. For example, we "worked" in a location in OR that required we do 30 hrs per couple for just site and FH. We were located in a private homestead where the owners were building a nature preserve on the 20 acres that they owned. Our "work" consisted of removing non-native plant life and general VERY light maintenance This all 30 miles from nowhere aside 2 streams and amid some of the most lush terrain in the country. Sometimes one can't put a price upon happy. There are folks who will argue that to trade their time for less than what THEY believe that they are worth worth is horrid! I feel sorry for them. They still don't get that it isn't at all about material gain. They likely never will get it and are extraordinarily limited as to what they can experience. YOU are the only one(s) who can decide the balance between what you consider "work" and what you are receiving in return, and again, that frequently isn't a matter of just a full hookup site or other amenities. If you allow it, it can mean peace, not only literally, but with your soul (whatever you perceive that to be) and truly enjoying what is left of your ever dwindling life. It just occurred to me that I sound like an old hippie. :) Never was one but the last point is crucial. Many of us are looking at the waning years of our lives. Apropos to the discussion: how do you want to spend yours?

Reforming Pans

We have a very good set of heavy duty hard anodized KitchenAid cookware. SOMEONE dropped the 8 qt. pan and the top 1" is deformed out of round so that the lid no longer fits. Anyone have a clue as to how to reform it or even who to take it to? I would certainly hate to have to ship it to KitchenAid. Thanks

RE: Labor Day Horror Stories

We're fulltimers and generally avoid campgrounds on holidays, but, long story short, we were in one this weekend. All was peaceful because it poured rain everyday. That dance really works!

RE: Coach?

Time to stop. THe OP has already admitted he is just trolling. And it appears to be working! These fora/forums have turned into white bread pablum and yeah, stirring the pot doesn't hurt. I STILL maintain that calling an RV a "coach" is effete.

RE: Coach?

Pretentious? Not in the least. OK, I'll give you this one. In the most!

RE: Coach?

Seriously? It's an RV! Seriously? This is all you have in life to worry about? Seriously? You think I am worried? I mislead! Just stirrin' the pot. Seems to have worked! :) And yep, I still find it pretentious.

RE: Coach?

When it is $400,000 new, it can be called a coach! Fred. From the MW dictionary: a. A motorbus. b. A railroad passenger car. c. A closed automobile, usually with two doors. d. A large, closed, four-wheeled carriage with an elevated exterior seat for the driver; a stagecoach. 2. An economical class of passenger accommodations on a commercial airplane or a train.
