Thanks for the link back! We have a super small camper and space is at a premium, even for weekend trips (which we do A LOT!). 🙂

Yea, the new format is great, aside from a few glitches, but my biggest gripe is the faint type. The Escapees magazine went to the same type recently as well. Problem is your readership demographic is probably 50+ and our eyes are not as efficient as they used to be!

The new site is very nice on my Android phone. However, that said, I hate change! I always like the old no matter how bad it may be. I always figure a way around the bad. I will get use to the new and will hate when you want to improve it. LOL.

“motorHOME” is the industry term. Thus a home. I have lived in a stick built house my entire life thus far. In the very near future, my wife and I will be full-time RVers and still working ‘normal’ jobs. Not camping, but living/traveling with all our wants and needs with us. OCD suited living. Let it be!

While camping our way through the southwest U.S. this past year, staying at National Parks and Forest facilities (reserved months in advance while planning our trip) we encountered MANY folks in
various “RV’s” that were well worn at best, often dilapidated and seemingly non-road-worthy. Stopping at Walmart’s for re-supply we were often approached by van-dwellers panhandling and appealing to our sense of being part of their nomadic tribe. I’ve since learned there are thousands of these “nomads” (just search RV nomads on YouTube) who travel in packs and consider themselves “full-time RV’ers”. I’ve got no more in common with these moochers who live off the welfare of those they can exploit to support their “freedom” and I’m finding that friends and acquaintances now associate my desire to spend retirement in my RV as me joining these beggars who leave any area they inhabit worse than when they found it. Can we at least agree that they are NOT “full time RV’ers”?

I have been “full timing” for 3 years now. That is, I live in my RV 365 days a year, traveling all over the continent. I am insured with GEICO, who insures full timers. My understanding is that the reason all RV’s are classified as recreational vehicles, 3 seasons, is that if you classified them as full time you have to building them according to the building code.

Why would you even think that full time travel is a modern phenomena? It is one of man’s oldest traits. Cave men moved all the time. The gypsies of Europe still travel the countries. In Mongolia it is a way of life. In the Americas many of the tribes, especially in the west were always moving with the seasons, the food supply, the need for new gossip and just to be moving. Some folks just have it in their genes, and itchy feet…

I like the new format but I really hate having to read stories by either opening up a new window or being taken to the article. Any chance some of the smaller items can be added to the core of the newsletter or as I have seen elsewhere a down arrow that opens / expands the article in same page that you are on? A couple of items today opened in new windows while others replaced the newsletter and had to use the back button to return to the newsletter. Since I read this on a computer, I prefer a new window.
Thanks for all the info that you provide

I like the new design but I do not like the constant pop up of another item (which I have already read) on the right side. Very annoying. Also when I click on “read the story here” type of link, I wish it would open in a new tab, although it is not difficult to go back to the main page, I just forget I have to do it. Otherwise, I’m still enjoying reading this newsletter each week and also the daily blurbs too. Keep on keepin’ on! Hope all y’all have a great, happy holiday season!

Chuck and Staff, Looks great, feels great. The kinks will work themselves out over time. Love it.

Charles Berg

I really like the new format, I usually read it on my Kindle and it fit perfectly.

Welcome back to the great state of Washington. We live in Anacortes. Early in my life I traveled with my husband for work all around the USA. With 2children. You miss a home base. An RV is not a home ,but a temporary residence. Glad you had a great time. You did learn a lot and will have a better prospective now and both scenarios. We have a Winnebago, and love moving most every month with 400 miles.

Like your work on the new site and newsletter….. but… the pop ups will drive me away! Please take them away, they’re annoying. Also consider returning your “read more” links to opening a new tab so the base newsletter is always available without needing to hit a back link.

Brian

I like the new format and that it doesn’t open up new tabs every time I click a link. I like to be able to just hit the back button to go back to where I left off. Thank you.

Dr4Film

Nice format to the NEW newsletter. However, please inform your IT web site manager that when there is a Hot Link, it should open up in another TAB, not in the same tab. Very inconvenient the way it has been programmed now. Thank you!

Steve

Chuck – Like the new site except the ‘more stories’ keeps popping up in the bottom right hand corner. Anyway to disable this with 1 click?

Sharon Mathie

Nice job on the Newsletter upgrade. Used on my iPad mini without problems!

Jeannie

The text of the newsletter this week is very faint and difficult to read, especially with my old eyes.
