Tell us a little About Yourself
I'm a freelance ghostwriter, designer and photographer. I write for Airstream Magazine and for Airstream's newsletter. So if you own an Airstream of know of someone who does let me know. I'm always looking for good story ideas!!

I write ebooks about just about anything for anyone who wants to write and sell a book but doesn't have the time, resources or expertise. I'm on my third book in a series about women and guns and guns and security - all of which are for sale or free on the United States Concealed Carry Association website. I used to be a police officer (academy grad and worked for about a year before giving it up to write), and I think that being aware of your surroundings, being smart and leaving your ego parked at the door and using your best manners and smarts will get you out of 80% more bad situations than a gun - but if you're going to have a gun, have it and use it wisely.

I'm a former journalist/photojournalist (22 years). I love defending the underdog and going after bad corporations - former investigative journalist!

I recently gave up my apartment and became a full-timer again. I'm alternating between full-timing and couch surfing with a friend who has recently had back surgery and needs a care giver for a few months.

I love to fish, love to camp and while a bad knee keeps me from backpacking, I still enjoy day hikes and biking. I have a rottweiler - almost ten years old now she mostly sleeps and eats (they only live to be about 10 or 12. So - that makes it hard to find a campground since most don't take certain breeds.

I write and produce ebooks. See my website at: http://beckyblanton.com.

Josh Rogan, Airstream Musician

I write for Airstream Life Magazine. I get to meet some amazing full-timers and write about them. Of course most of them live, work and play out of an Airstream, but sometimes I meet people who are new to Airstream, or that bring something so unique and fun to life that they could be written about anywhere.

 

Last weekend I got to meet Mike Michalowicz, a best-selling business author who accompanied me to an interview with a singer/songwriter/biker and stonemason named Josh…

RVer of the Year? Who will you choose?

My friend Marty Shenkman and his wife were recently selected as one of the top 5 finalists in the RVer of the year awards organized by Camping World. He joins four other very worthy finalists for the top honor. I'm posting to ask you to vote for Marty because he is doing something that affects ALL of us. He is a tax attorney whose wife Patti has MS. They bought an Airstream trailer and now travel around the country helping educate financial advisors about how to help their clients plan for… Continue

Flying J no longer offers free dumping



Just one more reason people need to really stop abusing dumping stations. RV'ers used to be able to dump their tanks for free at any Flying J Truck Stop. Due to the cost of cleaning out tanks and the misuse and abuse of the service they now charge for the privilege - $10 a pop. Please don't force other providers to follow suit. Read the rules, understand that ONLY human waste, not human trash of any kind goes into a dump station. Here's Flying… Continue

Internet site for finding campgrounds and boondocking sites

There are a lot of RV and camping sites out there and it can be hard to find the one that suits your needs after you figure out the basics. Here's a site I discovered today. It came from a boondocking group I belong to. What I love about it is they give topographical map information. Some of you might like that - particularly if you like to four-wheel or snowmobile or hike etc. They also include a lot of great links to other, little known but very useful sites. All the information on the site… Continue

Thanks Becky, I just poke in now and then. I intended to have more to add to our finished trailer but alas, back home, work again, winterizing already and so forth. We head out every Spring for San Diego. The camper worked very well in all respects. fans, stove,water, shower,head,and especially the pull out bed.
At times it was like home. Our dog Daisy has to go out at night and that is a bit of a problem with the door now partially closed off. Dolly has to squeeze through. Our bed opens to a full Queen size now.
Take care, enjoy you writing.

I guess I can say I'm learning when it comes to this camper thing! Ugh! We are finished with the framing on the sides and placed the windows so we can figure out any extra framing etc. (I put up pic) I would have so much fun going to see trailers like that-Rob and I always talk about going to "green" seminars before we build our retirement abode! What a fun excuse to travel and learn. Ideas too!

Becky- sent my uncle a note to you and gave you his email on our "friend" request I sent you.

I'll see if he's interested (My Uncle) I'll drop him an email tonight. I'm so intrigued with ebooks and the whole bit- I teach art to school age youth and have done murals for so long- all the local teachers are always wanting me to come in and help with projects. My two are college and High School! I have been playing with trying one out on lulu.com but maybe I need to look into your suggestions...

Becky- I'm reading your profile and I think of my Uncle Jim- who lives in Mosas Lake, WA. He travels the US and teaches instinctive shooting to Border Patrol and police groups. His name is Jim Gregg. He also has a hover craft he uses to take groups hunting and fishing. His biz is called C.O.P.S- combat oriented polices schools. My Mom grew up in Chehalis, WA and my Dad in Centralia. Anyway- she always did everything. Hunt, fish, built furniture, raised us, was a wonderful cook and could "fry it up in a pan" as they say. I miss her- she'd be right in on doing this camper with me. WE saw many big RVs this last weekend- my daughter did a Sand Soccer Tournament in Oceanside ,CA (1st place!) anyway- ours looked so small when we drove up the drive! Ha! I kind of like that though.

He had it for sale on Ebay but I actually found it on a vintage trailer site. Then called and bought it direct. The guy had talked the surfers who owned it (original-42 yrs) out of it but realized it was too much wood and fiberglass for him to re-do. Good for me because I don't think I'll get rid of this one once we finish! I have to stay true though and make it a "surf van" in blues and wood and chrome. We even want to "hang" a wooden surfboard down the side that will flip down as an outside bar....

Becky, the mural on my trailer is reminiscent of the wonderful artist Linda Carter Holman. Knew I wanted a mural (lots of dings to disguise) and had a print of hers hanging in my living room, so she was the inspiration. Would love to lie and say that I did the painting but I cannot! A local artist/sign painter took home the print and the trailer and, voila!

Becky, bet Virginia is very lovely this time of year. Sooo glad Koko has a freind to play with. Lady's friend, sugar from down the street, comes by every morning for a romp every morning... which usually entails playing chase with their toy over me while I'm waking up. They're a joy to see having so much fun! HAve a wonderful week! pat, linda & lady dog
