Reflections on the RVE Summit

There have been wonderful reports and reflections on the weekend of February 24-26, The RV Entrepreneur Summit. All of these summations have been beautifully written and informative, and delightfully funny! The photos have been nothing less than amazing, especially the night photography sessions with Joe Hendricks! Rather than just review my take on the sessions, […]


What if you were poor and living semi-homeless in an RV park?

Would anyone know?  Would they recognize your homelessness if they saw it?   When we bought our motorhome and moved into it full-time, we spent a month in an RV Park in our hometown, finishing with work and personal obligations.  It was mid-summer and hot…very hot.   We happened to be parked on the last row […]

Technology haters, listen up.

I know these days it is popular to hate technology, and how it has overtaken our lives.  While I’m not interested in arguing the point with anybody, I would like to say I am a 60+ grandmother who has embraced the advances of the digital information age.  In the past few weeks, I’ve: had a […]
