Hi Chuck, Gail ,
Is there a seminar or group to discuss starting a new campground? You discussed the growing deficit between record RV sales & diminishing campsites (especially affordable ones) but I think we, as RVers, will need to be an active part of the solution. Suggestions & further discussion would be appreciated.

Hello, RV Family, I will try to keep this short….. I had a 6 bedroom, 6600 sq ft home in Brentwood Tn for over 18 years and it was my dream home. But in July of 2015 I went camping over the 4th of july holiday at a local campground in Nashville Tn and I got the camping bug. My idea of camping before was a Hilton hotel with no pool….. Moving forward in October of the same year i scratched my head and said …WOW i still have that big house and I havent been home since July 4th… Read more »

Thanks Bill. You are a very wise man who has learned what is necessary for a simple life. I am still in “school” working on the leap of faith.

Hi, Chuck.
Really like the newsletter, but have a small gripe. in the bit about your closets, you say “eight times smaller”. Nothing can be smaller than 1 times smaller. Eight times as large, yes; 8 times as small, no. 1/8 the size, yes.

While I am sure everyone knows what you mean, it isn’t possible for something to be 8 times smaller.

Michael, Well, that’s my grammar lesson for the day. I still don’t understand, and I think readers understood what I meant. But not sure I will remember this particular rule as ye ol’ brain can’t quite comprehend the math as you’ve explained. But thanks for weighing in on this. Actually, now that I have written this, I think maybe I WILL remember!

I love reading your articles but when I read your homesick one I had to comment. We are relative newbies to fulltiming as we just sold our house a year plus ago and moved into a nice RV (no complaints there) but when back (holidays, doctors, etc) to where we had permanent roots for forty years, family and friends, I become swamped emotionally with feelings of wanting my things back, even though my head knows they were just possessions that tie you down. The biggest problem causing the most ho-hums for me is not having my own place for family… Read more »

Thank you for “On The Road” at 63 I still remember watching that. Like to see that here on the newsletter weekly. Never know we just might get a Chuck or Charles wanting to do the same thing. I enjoy reading and watching about your travels, got your book and enjoyed reading.

Roy, we decided to run the Charles Kuralt pieces every other week. We don’t want to run out too fast, which could happen if we did them weekly. I wish we could run them weekly, too.

I’m a newbie and just bought a travel trailer last December. I’m still learning how to use it and on my 2nd trip out I noticed the battery was almost dead. It had a cheap 12V that was several years old. So I talked to a friend about replacing it. I ended up buying two 6V deep cycle golf cart batteries and wired them up to make 12V. I now have 235 amp hours versus an almost dead 80 amp hours. I consider this a major upgrade. Yes, this was a bit more expensive but I like to get the… Read more »

One of my enjoyments Saturday morning is reading RV Travel usually around 7:30 – 8:00 am. However today I did not get one in my e-mail. I am a voluntary subscriber and do hope this is an electronic mishap.

Dear Chuck,

You were most likely right on target with your giant catfish sighting, they get big.

Check out “noodling” if you want to see more.

Way too many ads. Very hard to decide what is an ad and what is content. I realize this is a means to make money but enough already. The content isn’t worth the effort.

Chuck Woodbury
Admin

Jerry, all the ads have red headlines, other material does not. I know there a lot of ads, mostly to Amazon, where we get a slight cut on what someone buys. We average about a $1 per sale. We have a paid staff of more than 10 people now (including regular freelance columnists) and we pay them, not take advantage of them by asking them to write or work for free. Also only a few percent of our readers have “voluntarily” subscribed with a small donation, so we need that Amazon revenue. Now that we have our Monday-Thursday RV Daily… Read more »

I see most of your ads are in the column on the right and not in the main body of the site. I think that separation is correct and makes it easy to read or ignore if you wish. Unfortunately money is what we all have to make to do the things we want to. Remember the Golden Rule…what would you do if you ran the newsletter?

Hi Chuck,
I read your post everyday. I think it is full of great information.
A few issues ago you demonstrated your coffee maker. It looked very good.
In the article, it didn’t indicate where one could be purchased.
I did the usual ” google search ” with no success .
Is it possible to pass that information along?
I am from Ontario Canada
Thank you for your time and consideration

Heres something to think about.
I see so very many RV ers posting on facebook pix of their travels. If you are a part timer, wait until you come back home before posting those pictures!
Dont be telling folks that you are away!!
