I saw that video a few years ago. My daughter sent it to me and I love it. We watched it a few times afterwards. A great video when you need to see that you can do when you can’t. Thanks for the video. Still great to watch again.

I am disappointed that you allow advertisers like Muama on your site. Have you tried to actually see what the rates are for their WIFI service? It’s impossible unless you give them your credit card number. They make a big deal of displaying what the cost of their WIFI hardware is but not their rates, which is the MOST important piece of info one wants to see. This is the kind of deceptive advertising you should not allow on your site.

We apologize, Leo. As I just responded to another reader, we’re trying to control those deceptive and/or obnoxious ads as soon as we hear about them. However, since the ads change constantly, and also depend on the location of the reader and even what the reader has clicked on before, we have no way of knowing what someone is seeing in our newsletters that Google drops in automatically. If you see something deceptive/scammy/obnoxious, please try to get a screenshot of it, as well as the URL for their website, and send it to diane(at)rvtravel.com. I’ll make sure it gets blocked. Of course, that will only work until they change their address, unfortunately. But we can at least try to keep things under control. We’re just as annoyed by those types of ads as you all are. Thank you for letting us know. Have a great day, and stay healthy. 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Thank you, Leo. I’ve reported it to one of our IT experts. I just ran into it myself when proofing an article, so was able to take a screenshot of the ad as well as copy their URL (their address) and sent them to Jessica to block them. It should work to keep these ads from automatically being inserted in our website from Google – at least until they change their URL and get in that way. We don’t necessarily see the ads that are automatically inserted by Google that our readers see, since they’re inserted based on what readers have clicked on before or where they are located. But we’re trying to keep deceptive/scammy/obnoxious ads from appearing on our website – so thank you for reporting it. Have a great day! 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

The “safest roads” article was interesting. But I did wonder about basing “safe” on fatalities. With medical aid and vehicle safety advances over the years, I could see survival being very dependent on closeness of medical aid, where safe roads (reported accidents) might give a very different picture. Many of the “safest” states were highly urbanized and known for medical care.

California took the Fuel Tax and thanks to Governor ***** Brown’s first time as Gov had those taxes go into the General Fund – not specifically for road repair and transportation. Another way to blow tax payers money on things other than its intended purpose, to build and maintain roads. But hey, now the state can boast about it’s crumbling roads, try coming in from Reno or Arizona in an RV on the rutted and pothole roads now!

Re: raising fuel taxes….
not sure of the percentage that goes to local roads but the amount of expired license plates is through the roof. I don’t know how much compliance would help or how much if any goes to road maintenance, but I do know how much I paid for my initial registration and yearly renewal. I notice almost 50% expired plates and it doesn’t matter what socio economic area I am in. Teslas and broken down pick ups just the same. Some paper tags years old. Just a thought.

We try to make trip reservations months or even up to a year in advance. Because of Covid, etc. we have not been able to do that. We were only able to make reservations 2 months in advance. Fortunately we were able to make 12 out of 15 RV reservations where we wanted to stay this summer. An 80% success rate is not bad considering how many people are RVing now. That success was a pleasant surprise. Happy RVing to all.

The Sunday Funny is kinda pushing the limit on good taste. It would be cute except for that one misspelled, mispronounced word.

In Ireland that slang word is correctly spelled and pronounced. I found it very amusing.
