RE: The Zen of Full Timing - Living Comfortably

We have been FT traveling for 14 years. We have owned 3 rigs and have downsized every time (now in a 28' FW) because we enjoy the many places inaccessible with larger rigs. I can't imagine doing what we do in a 40' rig and missing the experiences that are not available to that mindset. To each their own.

RE: Audio Books

Check out local libraries on line. You will NEVER be bereft of material.

RE: High altitude cooking

Just a suggestion: There is another sub-forum here entitled "Camp Cooks and Connoisseurs ". You might receive better feedback there.

RE: The Zen of Full Timing - Living Comfortably

14 years into this fulltime traveling experience (from AK to C America and back a few times), we have always believed that simpler is better. We've not changed our minds. Wherever we are, walking an average of 4 miles/day is a given. Preparing great, nutritious meals with minimal fat is a part of our daily lives. (I've owned 2 restaurants and managed another) We might eat out roughly 4 times/year when we have coupons to do so. We nearly always regret it. Zen? If you can wake up and go to bed with a sense of peace, you're there. If you can't, figure out why and work to correct it, or not. Remark upon the fact that you are among a privileged few on the planet who can even consider the question.

RE: Unusual places you have stayed the night.

Not sure the definition of unusual. Been doing this fulltime thing for nearly 14 years. Is pulled along the ALCAN on the way to AK unusual? Possibly for most. How about through Central America and back again without reservations or concerns? Probably unusual for the majority. We've done both of those and hundreds in between. Go your own way, park wherever you consider unusual (legal would be good) and desirable and live the rest of your life in the best way you can. As has been noted abundantly before, ain't none of us gettin' out of this deal alive.

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

This has turned into a typical rant here. It doesn't matter whether it's about dogs (pooping, barking, etc) loud children, loud music, bright lights, golf carts. idling diesels and the list goes on and on. There is only ONE answer to these never ending complaints. It's all about individuals who have absolutely no concern about anyone else but themselves. It really is that simple.

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

Why don't you contact the park and get the answer directly from the people requiring the fee?

RE: Financing an RV

doing a trade-in, is ALWAYS a losing game for the customer. that's why i refuse to do it and always sell my vehicles/RV's myself. then i don't have that handicap during negotiations. YEP! And to add further, if you have to finance an RV, you would be best to not do that. Quality, well maintained RV's are available on the aftermarket by the hundreds at huge discounts. 3-5 year old units have usually been shaken down and repaired optimally. Macabre as it may sound, seeking out elderly widows/widowers may be your best bet. Due diligence is necessary, but it's likely that even the least savvy can spot the scammers who prey on this market. When, not IF, I die, I would hope that someone else could benefit from my meticulous maintenance and care and buy our home for these past 4 years (another FT rig for 10 before that). That's how we bought this one. Her deceased husband had not only taken care but improved many things extant. We offered her 25% more than she was asking, which was 50% below market value in excellent shape. She knew that we would take care of THEIR previous home and refused to take more. She asked us to keep in touch. We did frequently until we were informed of her death 2 years ago. We have taken good care of her legacy. I know, I veered from the thread here, but not really. There are many other alternatives to "financing". Look at them before you put yourselves in debt.

RE: Not A Good Welcome

Not if you use a good, strong password. And with those personal mobile hotspots, you likely can see how many connections are on your hotspot, pretty easy to spot an intruder right away. You are kidding yourself.

RE: Not A Good Welcome

I am getting paranoid in my old age I guess, I don't use public WiFi anymore. As much as I hate to pay the darn bill every month, we stick with a Verizon MiFi. I hope that you do understand that a jetpack (or equivalent) is as easily hacked as what you call a "public" wifi. Bottom line is that none of that connectivity is of any importance to serious hackers. They will really not bother with your measly bandwidth in a campground. Sure, can you possibly allow sensitive info? Yep, but at that point it is on you. Don't want information seen by anyone else? Don't post it! ANYWHERE!

RE: Who's Looking Out for Our Interests?

As so many others have commented, rant with your wallet. And puhleeze, don't even think about getting the gubment involved!

RE: Is it the People or the the Places?

PLACES rarely disappoint, PEOPLE often disappoint. Give me the places and few people and I'm happy. Where can we meet? Oh yeah, that would be antithetical. Keep on keeping on and we might eventually meet. Very unlikely, but we like your style. :B

RE: Do you have goals, aims or neither in life?

When I was 17 I set my sights on retiring at 50. Did it at 49 and have been fulltiming the 14 years since. Never had a specific plan as to how to get there, just knew that I would. Our only 2 requirements are that we be somewhere warm and we eat well. Everything else is more or less serendipity. We very rarely plan further than tomorrow. More often we decide what we'll do today, after breakfast.

RE: Is it the People or the the Places?

For us, 14 years fulltiming from Central America to Alaska and back, and MANY more years dealing with people before that, we've hit our limit. The me, me, me generation has eclipsed anything civil. We now seek out the least populated places that we can find. Working so far. And no, not even giving a clue.

RE: caretaker position for RV owner

The more we are thinking about this, the less we like the idea of someone staying here. You have discovered. Ask the moderator to close this thread. All the best to you.

RE: Noisy kids, drunks,rude people, dog dung

Wintersun, If you encounter the wife and myself, we are not there to enjoy the great outdoors primarily. I just have to ask: Why ARE you there? I like my microwave, I like my big screen tv and if I feel the need to respectfully run my generator that is exactly what I will do. And, respectfully, why don't you do it out of earshot of others who don't share your vision? And again, why did you leave home?

RE: Noisy kids, drunks,rude people, dog dung

Bottom line in this entire discussion is that there are people who consider others and there are those who don't. Sadly, I'm not sure that the "don'ts" now don't outweigh the "do's".
