Stationary in FL for another month. We are all about sharing our RVing experiences with our listeners. In January we attended the Tampa RV Supershow with the idea of learning what's new in the industry. We toured the lots and talked with vendors. This month and next we'll have some interviews vendors that have new products that we feel are of gener…
 
Winter is time for RV Shows & we attended the Tampa SuperShow. We had several questions to get answered by the factory reps at this show. We also visited hundreds of vendors selling all types of RV products. We hope to have some follow-up with selected venders in the coming months. We mention fleet in the title because we have joined two fleet serv…
 
Your RV Navigators are on tour in the Middle East for about a month. Leaving in the middle of the month, we are on target to visit Palestine, Israel, Jordan, and Egypt on this month long adventure. So far we have learn much about this volatile part of the world. We have specifically taken a none domonational tour of the holy land. We have seen many…
 
A month of highs & lows. We attended the Newmar Rally in Syracuse NY along with 450 other Newmar motorhomes. This 8 day event provided us with a chance to see the latest product and get some repairs-updates done to our coach. Newmar brought 55 techs to the event to provide service and repairs for coach owners. We took advantage of this service. Als…
 
Twenty-seven days in Ecuador gave us a chance to explore diverse areas of this small country. These 3+ weeks in Ecuador allowed us to visit the Amazon rain forest, Galapagos islands, and Andes mountains all within a country that is the size of Nevada. Small but diverse with rural-urban, hot-cold, and wet,-dry regions all on the Equator. For a small…
 
Every RV needs to be repaired from time to time. Newmar has opened a very modern service center with campground for its owners. How you'll get your RV fixed might be a factor when you come to buy an RV either new or old. Newmar pride itself on fixing any RV that it has manufactured regardless of age. Not every manufacturer will stand behind its ent…
 
With Memorial Day behind us, we are ready for summer and the warm weather to begin. But, spring is still bringing rain and cold. We were worried about frost and the motorhome so we had to leave the heat on for a couple of nights this month. With June’s arrival, we are looking for long days and warm nights but of course we’ll be a home. We let our c…
 
A quiet month for us. In summer we fall in to routine activities centered around home in Chicago. We did do our yearly “exercise the motorhome” trip to Lake Geneva, Wis. (about 2 hrs from home) for 3 nights at a state park. We focus on photography topics this month - our camera choices, new photo options, and thoughtful ideas about photography and …
 
April 1st we fired up the RV for the trip back to Chicago. This was to be a meandering journey that would up the month. We planned to visit Savannah, Washington DC, Charlotte SC, and the Laurel Highlands of SE PA. All went well on this journey as we explain in this months podcast. We had several new systems to test out on this 1200 mile trip. Altho…
 
this episode we are focused on our recent trip to Antartica. At the end of February, we headed South - way sou In th. In the land of ice, snow and rock that makes up the 7th continent. This land mass has no native animals, insects or plants (aside from a few liken). So why visit such a desolate place? The landscapes are bleak but beautiful with bla…

February is always short, but because we are leaving for Antartica in late February, we are getting ready early. This maybe a time when we’ll be totally out of touch at the beginning of the month and thus not able to do the podcast, so we did it early. Our 17 day sailing will take us further south than we've ever been at the end of their summer. Ho…
 
CBS News came a calling to check out our podcast this month. This took the form of a 4 man crew coming to our RV site in FL to set-up and record your RV Navigator being interviewed by CBS Correspondent David Pogue. This took place on January 4th with the final product airing on January 20th CBS Sunday Morning program. Our segment (1 minute & 11 sec…
 
Once again we are on the road away from our motorhome so we don't have alot of RVing news. Back from our 3 cruise itinerary to Spain with a sail back to Miami. We sailed on a small 100 passenger ship within Spain and Portugal, then a super cruiser with 5500 passengers for 12 days to Miami and finally a 3100 passenger ship to Bahamas. We share our i…
 
We’re off on a 39 day trip to Portugal, Spain and a transAtlantic sailing to Miami. Leaving from our winter home in Florida, first flying to Lisbon for an 11 day small ship cruise to Barcelona. This itinerary would have easily been done via a bus tour - so why would you do it by cruise ship? The world of cruising is quickly changing and we note man…
 
Rvers need to be flexible and mobile. We planned to be in SC this month, but the hurricane had other plans so we headed to FL early. After stopping in Gaffney SC for a quick check up of the MH, we were planning to visit relatives near the coast of SC. However, this was just as the hurricane was scheduled to make landfall, so we packed and spent mos…
 
Summer at home or at our Summer home as we have come to call it is enjoying the warm months in Chicago with the RV securely parked until fall. By design, we stay home in summer. Although we did make a short camping outing to the lake shore at the Indiana Dunes SP to keep the RV tuned up and ready to roll, most of the summer will be at home. Are we …
 
After 23 days at sea from Australia (and the outback), we arrived home in IL for the summer. We spend summers at home so that families can have the campgrounds during their summer holidays. However, with more and more RVs being sold and on the road, campsites are sometimes at a premium. We share our views on the camping crunch that the industry is …
 
On the road in Sydney Australis this month. We are currently about 1 day ahead of our usual world - confusing to say the least. We left mid month for a 53 day journey that ends with us sailing back to Seattle from Sydney, Australia. It started with a long flight to Fiji where we spent a few days recovering from jet lag. This was a total day for nig…
 
Winter in the North means we are in the warm - this year in Tucson, AZ. After a brief encounter with winter in IL, we flew back to LV for a week before heading down to Tucson via Quartzsite and Pheonix. Then on to Tucson for a couple of months in the sun. Tucson is always sunny but often cool in January. This year turned out to be the warmest Janua…
 
The holiday season finds us at home with the RV parked in LV for the month. We are flying round trip to LV to continue our winter in the good weather. Family and friends keep us coming back to Chicago for the holidays. Since last month, we drove on many miles of open range highway with visits to more NPs including Cedar Breaks & Zion. A week plus w…
 
Rt 50 is considered to be the loneliest highway and we traveled much of it this month as we traversed several deserts and vast planes of CA and NV. We also visited several NPs including Crater Lake, Lassen, Great Basin, & Yosemite. Spending just a few few nights in each, we have had a block buster month of RVing ending in Cedar City UT (Cedar Break…
 
On the road from Washington State near Mt. St. Helens & Mt. Rainer. We left home in early Sept headed to some of the NPs that we had visited 30 years ago and missed (due to snow) on our trip 2 years ago. Back again to visit these spectacular locations. Excellent weather made our photos worthy of the locations.After meeting several podcast listeners…
 
Summer is nearly over but our travel are just beginning. We’re on our way west to Rocky Mt, NP earlier than expected after Martha’s surgery so we’re starting new. We had carved out until the first of the year for her recovery, but it is a bonus to be able to leave in September. Our plan is to pick up some of the NPs that we missed on our last trip …
 
Another month at home enjoying the summer in Chicago. A great place to be in the warm months. Martha continues to progress and recover from her foot surgery in May. We are looking forward to hitting the road in the RV in September. So this month we decided to focus on Apps for RVers. After asking the Google plus group, friends and our own top selec…
 
After a month of PT and careful walking, Martha is recovering from her foot surgery. She no longer has a cast or needs walking aids (we've had a knee scooter, walker, and cane this month) so we see major improvement from the original days after surgery in May. With Martha on the road to recovery, we are again making travel plans but we are still at…
 
Land (air) travel to Singapore where we boarded a 30 day cruise that ends in Rome, Italy after visiting ports in India, UAE, Greece and other countries. We spent a few days in Singapore enjoying its many sites. We spent some time in S’pore in the 70s so this trip gave a chance to reconnect with a favorite city. But it has changed so much of the cha…
 
The beginning of April finds us traveling again. We are currently sailing the high seas on our way from Singapore to Rome for a total of 30 days. However we began March in Cuba so we spend some time debriefing our Cuba adventure. It was not your usual Caribbean island adventure. Our tour involved several intense cultural experiences - as required b…
 
A quick flight from Miami brought us to Cuba for a long planned 12 day tour of this forbidden island. We started in the East with our trip heading to Havana in the next week. I have been worried about the viability of the internet (Wifi) in Cuba, but have been pleasantly surprised. Not free, but fairly fast so it was worth the cost. As I write this…
 
We start the month sailing in the Caribbean for a week sailing aboard the beautiful Harmony of the seas. She is todays largest cruise ship. Lots of innovation and digital enhancements. RFID wrist bands to provide access to rooms and accounts is just one thing. We beat the ships Casino for a total of $14 with a $60 investment, so we titled episode “…
 
After the family visit, we headed down to Titusville FL to stay on our lot at TGO for basically the first time. Several listeners greeted us warmly making it feel like home. However, making this purchase and staying at TGO gets us to thinking about retirement and the future. We also heard that two long time full timing couples were buying S&Bs and …
 
Our travel plans are a bit different this year. We are taking the RV south in the fall before the winter season. We’ll be driving the toad back & forth in the cold weather. For now, we are visiting relatives in SC on our way to TGO in Florida. For the first winter we’ll be using our lot at The Great Outdoors in Titusville, FL between January and Ma…
 
Five days at sea highlighted our 16 day crossing of the Atlantic. We did make a major stop in Iceland for some great sightseeing, but we also spent quite a few days at sea. Many listeners would find this much unplanned time to be boring, but, from our exdperience its not. Would you switch from an RV to a sailboat? RVing & sailing seemingly have muc…
 
After enduring the hot spell that invaded much of the midwest and northwest for most of August, midmonth found us on a cruise in the Fjords of Norway. But this only after stops in NYC and Iceland. This part of the trip was a typical hotel stay where we were making all of the plans ourselves (as opposed to taking a tour). After this travel experienc…
 
July was a month at home, but we are thinking of RV topics. We do an extended interview with our single RVer friend Mike about his adventures since our last interview. Now that his rig is more that a year old, he is considering an extended warranty. Does an extended warranty give you peace of mind? It should, but do the contracts really deliver wha…
 
The final leg of our marathon 5 month travel adventure was completed just after Memorial Day with 2200 mile drive across the high planes back to Chicago. We hosted two visits from new motorhome owners while will provide interesting listening. We interview Marc & Sara who just picked up their 2016 Newmar Dutch Star at the factory. They have never RV…
 
We traveled from SF to Vancouver Island during May as the final leg of our 6 month long west coast adventure. This month we drove the PCH, and visited the Olympic NP and many places in between in Oregon and Washington. We’ll have driven 8500 miles in the motorhome by the time we return home. We travel via ferry to Vancouver island as well as had ma…
 
Travel this month was mostly in CA from the East where we visited Sequoia NP to the northern coast and Redwoods NP. In between we hosted our Australian friends & listeners in SF. We are now heading north on the PCH, the beautiful coastal highway. Our intention is to head to Vancouver Island later this month and then go east to Chicago.…
 
We are traveling in the desert west this month with stops in Las Vegas, Palm Springs, and Lake Havasu. Lots of photo ops as we attended the fireworks extravaganza & modernity week on our travels. We also visited Death Valley NP. Good weather made these adventures lots of fun. Death Valley which boosts the hottest temperatures in the world, was a pl…
