    Mike and Raelene McCracken: Beautiful day in Pioneer RV Park, in Phoenix, AZ. Just hung around the RV Park. Took a walk in the sun and walked the dogs to the doggie park.

      Mike and Raelene McCracken Very nice Christmas parade through the park last night.  Afterwards we gathered around the bond fire at the Ramada for good food, drink, music and conversation..

    RV Travel: Do you know about Google Photos? If not, check it out! We swear by the app. It has saved us from running out of memory on our phones many times when we're on long trips. Read more about downloading and using the app here: https://goo.gl/LghXUz...  more

      Hank & Shirleen Yes, but can you download/upload them to your computer MORE then ONE at a time? You USED to be able to do that with Apple, but no more! Some update at Apple killed that. One at a time now. WORTHLESS NOW.

      xctraveler I understood that the Winter Weather Advisory there does not kick in until 25 inches are on the ground. :) Take a look at the street map all the residential streets deadend into a large park so they have a place to plow the snow. We were there in July of ...  more

    RV Travel: I shot this photo at about 5:30 p.m. from the back of our campground near Kerrville, Texas. These are Axis Deer, from India, and they're an invasive species that escaped from game farms. The bucks have huge horns. They make very strange noises, almost lik...  more

  • Shoes on the Trail
    Shoes on the Trail: I noticed this week's survey showed a majority of respondents are somewhat transient travellers, like we two. We don't want a fancy RV park, we just want an electric hookup and a place to snooze and have breakfast in the morning. Something like a $5-$10...  more

      Tricksie2645 You are right to suggest these types of spots.  When I am actually traveling, I just don't have the inclination or the budget to pay $45 to $75 a night just to have a place to sleep.  I'd pay a small fee to have electric, but could do without th...  more

      Jim and Darlene Wright We have found that fraternal organizations, like the Moose, Elks, VFW, American Legion , and Eagles  will let you overnight in their lot and often have a 20 amp outlet you can use. Plus, many have meals and all will have a cold beer.Most require memb...  more

      Friskie Last summer we spent 3 months traveling from south FL to CA and back. 95% of our nights were spent at Moose, Eagles, Legion and VFWs. It would have been 100% if it weren't for the needed laundry and propane and general cleaning necessities!

    Tricksie2645: Chuck I just read/saw your latest post and I agree with what you are saying. My mom was a full-timer for almost 25 years and I couldn't wait to follow (literally) in her footsteps. Either my memory is bad (possible) or things are much different now. Ev...  more

      SouthParkSteve RVTravel--one extremely important thing missing from your article is the other side of the equation.  Yes, there have been a record number of new sales (which, personally I think is a GOOD thing....), but how many older rigs have fallen apart, been s...  more

      Mark Elliott You are correct sir! The net increase is what matters most so information on this metric would be very enlightening. Of course the changing number of available camp sites is the other side of the equation but given the quality of RV's being manufactured t...  more

      Liz Wharton & Barbara Jording I think there are parts of most states in which each yard averages one to two dead (really dead) RVs. We saw places with 5 and 6 RVs listing off into the weeds. Everywhere we went on our 4.5 month sojourn we saw hundreds of used RVs for sale - sitting unu...  more

      Liz Wharton & Barbara Jording You're right, Mark. I would make one addendum... the average stay on the repair shop lot or in repair in general, of a new RV of any type is 180 days per year.  That's 180 days the folks who want to use their RV can not use them.
