RE: Away we go

Army Corp of Engineer (ACOE) parks are great places to stay. If you have a "Senior Pass" the rates are as low as $12.00 per night. If you don't have a pass, I recommend that you get one. Jim M.

RE: RV Water Softener

Thanks to all who offered advice and comments. I will be getting the water softener as soon as we completed our workamper job in late September. Thanks again, Jim

RV Water Softener

Will be heading back to AZ for the winter and super hard water. Thinking of getting a water softener for my fifth wheel. If you have any suggestions I would like to hear from you. Thanks Jim M.

RE: Escape Plan

I believe one should always have a plan,I have met many people who elected to just let things happen. For many of them things didn't workout. Most RVers who full-time are generally retirement age and as such prone to dealing with health issues from time to time. I frequently say we are one health issue away from being forced off the road. The rub is you don't know when it will occur! So my wife and I have had an escape plan ready from the first day we hit the road. So my advice is to plan for your days on the road as well as the day you may have to leave the road.

Workamper Position- Oregon

Workamper Position Madras Oregon - I have been informed that PGE has two workamper positions available. One is a 40 hour position (maintenance) at Pelton Park. Contact me for details. This is a great opportunity and will not last long. Must pass a physical and drug screening. Jim

RE: What do you do with your time while full-timing

You can always find something to do or not. Checkout my blog for some ideas. Jim

RE: Dental care

We have never had any trouble get our dental checks/cleanings on the road. If we are staying in an area for any extended time, we ask for recommendations from the locals. Most dentist will require that you get an xray. Since we pay cash all have given us a discount.

RE: Anyone using GA as a domicile or residence??

My wife and I were long time Georgia residents, when we went full-time we changed to Florida. That should tell you something.

RE: States for Full Timing

Ditto on TX,Fl, less so on SD. I changed to FL because of the tax advantages. You also don't have to have your vehicles inspected or have a driver's license endorsement. I use "my rv mail" as my mail forwarding service and registered to vote in Okalossa county (Crestview) Fl where the mail forwarding service is located. Not offering an opinion of which state is best, just giving my experience. Jim

RE: Fulltiming In Texas

On your way to Washington, if you travel through central Oregon stop in Madras at the park we will be working at, Pelton Park on Lake Simtustus. It is a great place to spend a few days.

RE: Our ten year road trip

It is very easy to record ones travels by using a web based blog platform. I use Google blogger. It is free and easy to use. I write more when we are in a travel mode and less when we are moving less frequently. I try to make weekly post at a minimum. It makes it easy to let family or friends know what we are up to. I have been surprised at the number of readers who read my blog and how diverse geographically they are. I recommend that anyone who is a full-time ever maintain a blog. I haven't mentioned how much you can learn by reading blogs. Jim

RE: Where do you stay between sites?

If you can't extend your stay or check in early cheek to see if there is a CG along the way. We often stay at wally world, travel centers, or rest areas along the way.

RE: 50amp Surge Guard Needed or Not

Like most safety equipment, you only need it if you need it. I would much rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Before going fulltime I made a list of things that I thought were essential to have. A surge protector was on that list.

I place a level on the center island in the fifth wheel.

RE: Nightly stops enroute to Apache Junction AZ

I have an app for my smart phone, Allstays Camp and RV. There is a one time charge for it but it is not much. It shows cg,sp, Wal-Mart's and service centers. As a side note my wife and I are also going to Apache Junction. We will be at Superstition Sunrise, arriving around 1 Dec.

RE: State of residence for full timers

Since becoming a fulltimer and changing my state residency to FL, I have not had any problems with residency issues. I use the address issued trough MYRVMAIL.COM mail forwarding service. It met the requirements for; voting, drivers license, and CCW permit. PS I do not think I am doing anything illegal.

Wholesale Warranties

My extended warranty (GS Gold) will be expiring in a couple of months and I was surprised at the cost ($861.00) to renew it for only one year. I would like to hear from anyone that has experience with Wholesale Warranties or any other reliable companies. Thanks, Jim

RE: How much are you driving your Toad?

Until my wife and I headed out west last March we had a cr-v as a daily driver. We have a 5th wheel that I pull with a dodge dually. We sold it so she could ride in the truck and not have to follow across country. From April to the end of Sept we hosted at campground near Madras Oregon. During that time the dually became our daily driver. We used it for going on day trips and sightseeing when we were off. Both of us think we will be replacing the C-RV once we get to our wintering location in Apache Junction, AZ. The smaller car makes the daily driving and day trips easier. Especially, when driving in more congested towns and large cities. I also miss having Judy driving behind me as we travel because she could block lanes whenever I had to shift lanes. It is also cheaper to operate the C-RV. We are getting another C-RV because it can be towed "wheels down" in case we decide to get a MH at some point. Jim
