Congratulations Chuck! I always hoped you’d be able to do this someday, and am so thrilled for you and Gail. Today is the first day of the rest of your lives, and all that good stuff. Enjoy it to the fullest!

With thanks and admiration, your former intern and Wacky West “Senior Editor” 🙂 in the Gold Country,

Hi Chuck, Like you we just started full time RVing. Unlike you, we were tent campers for 30 years, never had an RV. My wife and I retired and went right to the top and got a 40ft. 5th Wheel pulled by a 1 ton truck. We did this because we plan on traveling the Country full time for the next 5 years. I will say, you were an influence in our decision, as we attended your talks at the Hershey RV show for the previous 3 years, and read your newsletter religiously.

Hi Chuck – You haven’t been Down South much, if ever. Come and check out Tennessee state parks and Smoky Mountain National Park campgrounds if you can. Find out firsthand about southern hospitality! Enjoy your travels.

Please cancel my subscription to your newsletter. I’m tired of the banner ad across the body of the newsletter when I scroll down. Even when I click the X to close it, it comes back. It’s an aggravating nuisance.

Jim, I’ll go ahead and take you off our list. I don’t know what that banner might be. If anyone else knows where it is coming from or what it looks like, I’d appreciate knowing. A screen shot would be great. — Chuck, editor

Best of luck on the new adventure Chuck. I tried it but only lasted a year. We had a home built in Arizona and we are happy here. Put the RV on blocks inside a building in Wisconsin. We stay there when we visit the area.

Chuck,
Why don’t you have a CheapHeat system put in your new RV. I’d be happy to supply with one of our hybrid kits for free, if you just write a short note on your newsletter of how well it worked for you.
Thanks
Larry

Larry, my new Winnebago came with the electric options, both on the furnace and the water heater. I really do see the advantage of having those options. I would have already contacted you if my Winnebago didn’t come equipped as it did. But thanks for the offer. — Chuck

Hi Chuck and Gail,
Just started reading the newsletter. Chuck, you said you were drifting so I have a name for your new home,” TUMBLEWEED”. I don’t know if you do this or not but it’s just an idea.
Have fun on your travels.

As always Happy Trails , Roy Shaw

LOL Chuck
I moved up from a 20′ class-C to a 28′ class-C and I feel like I am driving an aircraft carrier ! Since I live in the Rocky Mountains and like to go to rough campsites at the end of gravel roads with low hanging trees, I already have “aged” the 28 footer some. Thinking of downsizing…..

Your motorhome looks very nice, though the view of bedroom and bathroom was not complete. What year and model Winnebago is it?

Steven, it’s a 2011 gas-powered, 32-foot Winnebago Adventurer. We bought it used about six months ago from the original owner with 12,000 miles. So far, so good. — Chuck

Chuck,
You and Gail are going to love the new found freedom. Sure wish I could talk you into boondocking…..and saving all kinds of money by leaving the RV Park life behind….takes a bit more planning, but well worth the effort. We’ll be in Arizona this winter, maybe we’ll see you two.

Hi Chuck,

We love exploring the Oregon and California coast. One of our favorite RV parks is the Mill Casino RV Park in Coos Bay. The other one is Klamath Camper Corral in Klamath Ca.Could be worth checking out on your coastal travels. Congratulations on your new life.

Best wishes on your new lifestyle! We have been full-time RVing 2+ years and did extended traveling 8-9 months of the year for 12 years before that. We love the freedom of not having to worry about a house anymore. One “warning” you’re probably aware of — we’ve had an increasing challenge with campground reservations (public and private) in recent years as more and more people are purchasing RVs. The larger the RV, the fewer sites are available, whether you’re boondocking or staying in an established campground. With more people occupying the larger sites, we have to make more reservations than we used to AND make them earlier and earlier. That limits our freedom a bit but it’s still a great life! Enjoy. Sue and Jim

Chuck,

Your new “home” looks great! Congratulations! You’ll get used to driving it no problem. (we went from a pickup with a camper top to a 40′ MH) And yes, you can’t just pop off the road wherever you feel like it but “sizing up” that pull off space will come with practice as will hooking and unhooking the car. (Often to turn around in a missed “sized up” pull off). Enjoy the freedom, the road and places to travel. Life on the road is good.
