When asked what is the one piece of advice I would give to new RVers, whether they be fulltimers, snowbirds, or weekend warriors, the answer is always the same. Slow down. Not just slow down, but sloooow dooooown!

After living the KOA resort life for the past month, it feels good to be boondocking again! The Navigator found us a sweet spot with easy access, peaceful scenery, and best of all no neighbors! Likely because cell service was rather minimal, to say the least. It’s times like this, we are grateful for our RVDataSat dish and satellite internet service and weBoost cell signal booster!

After saying good-bye to the cousins in Georgia, it was time to head to the mountains of Franklin, North Carolina for the RV Quilters (facebook group) SEW2GETHER (a.k.a. Rally)! Tom was not too excited, but I had been looking forward to this all year! It was being held at an RV Resort we’ve stayed at before – The Great Outdoors – it’s a beautiful park, and we really enjoy staying it there.

We finally ended our month-long stay in New Mexico when faced with the prospect of multiple days of rain. Trouble was, it was also raining in Arizona, so we had to keep heading west across the Colorado Plateau in the on-and-off drizzle, past the meteor crater and Flagstaff, refueling in Kingman because we knew the California fuel prices would be higher, and then down 4000 feet to the Colorado River as upland coniferous forest turned into the Mojave Desert.

We share our thoughts about our decision to live full-time in an RV to travel and explore. Our goal is to create a simpler life, one full of adventure and fulfilling experiences. You will get a chance to learn more about us and get to see a few of the outdoorsy things we love to do in the video below.

In the United States, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and ultraviolet or UV radiation from the sun is the main cause.

There is more to RVing than just driving down the highway from one campground to another. America has many delightful and fascinating treasures that people drive by every day, never even knowing they exist. To make sure you don’t miss anything, here are some favorite travel guides that I refer to often.

In this video, I show you a neat little product called Wago Lever Nuts to help make connecting wires a snap. No soldering or crimping needed. The only tool required is a wire stripper. They are also simple to disconnect and can be reused. Handy for testing and troubleshooting circuits.

That is a loaded question…. But it is the most frequently asked question by those new to or not in “the lifestyle” More specifically, the question is “How do you do it, how can you be with your spouse 24/7?”

We’re welcoming our fifth year as full time RVers with a new travel segment called Dry Camping and Travel Tips with Levi! Our aim is to provide helpful tips to RV newbies and hopefully share a bit more with veteran full timers on all things urban and primitive dry camping (a.k.a. boondocking).

Donna kindly shared the following photos and tips on the process and materials they used.
