Community for RVers Goes Live on the Internet

Well, thanks to all of you our online rv community has finally gone live on the internet this morning.
I want to thank all of you for your help, encouragement and great feedback! And, a big special THANKS to Lilou, our web genius, for getting us launched.

Lilou is in France this month visiting and catching up with her parents who use took her caravaning in Europe. I'm sure she'll have some great tips on rving or caravaning in Europe when she gets back.

Now that we are driving the community out onto the electronic internet road it will be great to see where that road takes us.

Both Linda and I love to see photos, follow travel on your blogs and even view videos of your adventures and even misadventures ... we've had a few of those ourself. In fact, that's what prompted us to start this community as some of you know.

Our first trip in our "new", to us at least, 96 Fleetwood Southwind we broke down 4 times on the first trip, including a new transmission. You haven't lived until you have tried to push a 14,000 pound Southwind backwards on a dead end lane in a crummy KOA because the reverse has gone out on the transmission. Going home shifted by a brand new $6,000 transmission I can remember eagerly pulling into a beautiful rv resort just outside Palm Springs and heading up the dead end lane to our rv site, putting the tranny in reverse to back in and guess what, no reverse. Now, that is a "learning" experience. That's when Linda and I decided we needed help (many of our other friends think we are beyond help, but that's another story). Searching the internet we couldn't really find seasoned rvers to get help and advice from. So, we started hoping to start a community where rvers can reach out to others and ask questions about repair problems, get help finding a really good campground, what Walmarts can you "really" stay at and even get tips on how to buy a better good old rv next time.

If you like please help our community grow. Inviting your friends, family and other people in your circle. It's easy, just click on "Invite More" on the upper right hand page and they get a nifty invitation from you. The more the better. And we look forward to "meeting" them online here at

It's a great way for your friends, family and grand kids to keep track of your travels, blogs and photos as you go down the road ... and the community is always free,including free classifieds in case you want to sell or get another good old rv.

Ultraken, thanks for the great guidance! Very much appreciated. Guess I'm better at campin that this web stuff. I've reported the "add link" broken function and making the links clickable... they were added that way cause we want everyone to get to other good and truly interesting good old rv type sites.

What else do you think should be added or changed? thanks and would appreciate you keepin an internet eye on us. Pat ... broken down in Fort Collins, Colorado... again!

Let me suggest some website revisions.

1. The list of RV links should be made up of clickable links, using a label for each link rather than the actual URL that has to be copied and pasted in the address window.

2. The Add Hyperlink function does not work. It should, when working properly, ask for a link label string that will be displayed in place of the URL.

3. You should consider separating a set of links for specific vintage RVs from links about RVing.

You've made a good start, but the site needs some tweeking.
