Ole Charmer

Well I finally went out to get the paint for the Camper Carquest had some real decent colours so I went with a Sky Blue Mattalic which I think is gonna look pretty awesome when done. I can not really believe that I finally went in on buying a Ole Camper with my girlfriend Chris. But we would like to do some camping this year and have some Fun at it.

I can't believe that there is a website that actually helps individuals out with different types of info or suggestions about…

Tongue Jack

Need new tongue jack for our 1970 Aristocrat LoLiner and of course they don't make the original so you make do with what they have. The problem being the new jack is to long and hits the ground pulling into driveways. Does anybody know it they make shorter ones. Side jack would be great but no room with the toolbox and propane tanks - see my pic keeping it together. It's great seeing this warmer weather and hope everybody is thinking about camping. Thanks - DB

Our first outing this year, 2010

Well after a winter spent working on the Cabana, we actually got make a long weekend trip. Just up to friends in Culp Creek OR. (see photos) There are a number of great parks and such up this way but when you can stay with friends and have a creek just behind the Cabana, and a neighbor like "Cutie" why not.

Our winter list of work was long. We focused on getting things dependable. Front brakes were redone completly from the rubber brake lines to the brake drums and everything…

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

The Leisure Seeker, A new book about an RVing Couple

I love to read. And I do a lot of it - rarely reading a book more than once because there are so many new ones out there demanding my attention!! But I did get to preview "The Leisure Seeker," because I write for Airstream Magazine and the publicist thought the story took place in an Airstream. It doesn't. But she sent me the book anyway and I'm so glad she did. It's WONDERFUL!! It's also NOT for… Continue
