Is Your RV Food and Water Storage Harming Your Health?
When going on a trip one of the greatest challenges that lay ahead of us is to stay healthy during the trip. Most of us are used to thinking that providing enough fruits and vegetables is quite enough to assure a safe and healthy trip for the whole group. But the truth is that if we want to be sure that we are doing the best possible for our health we should take into consideration not only the healthy foods and vitamins but also food that might contain harmful chemicals and unhealthy substances. As you can easily guess the second ones should be avoided as much as possible.
Undoubtedly when we are in our homes using only healthy food with clean products is quite easy. But what about when... Read More →
Fulltimer Talks About RV Lighting – L.E.D. vs. Incandescent – what’s the big deal?
Do you find your coach or trailer batteries running out of juice quickly and all you had on was your 12 volt lights? Have you changed over to L.E.D. lights yet? Well, maybe it’s time you did! (and here’s why).
Did you know that the small incandescent light bulbs in your RV suck up a whole bunch of juice (current or electricity) from your batteries? OK, maybe I’m putting the cart before the horse.
What on earth are incandescent bulbs you ask? They’re the little glass light bulbs that looks similar to a car or truck tail light. Incandescent lights all have a filament in them. You know the light bulbs in your house that you always shake to see if the little wires in them have broken…those... Read More →
Games To Play When On An RV Trip
RV trips are a lot of fun but you need to know how to best spend your time when on such trip. There are a couple of games extremely suitable for RV travels. The following list will give you a few ideas on what you can play and what you will need to play it.

Full Time Rver’s Find Riverside Campground In Valentine, NE A Great Place To Stay
Riverside Campground is one of those wonderful treasures that you accidently run across. We first discovered it on our way to Yellowstone. We’ve stayed there on two different occasions and would do so again.
While there is nothing fancy about this little park, it is peaceful and quiet. Located on the bank Niobrara River, outside of Valentine, NE., it’s an easy walk to get to the river. Tent camping is allowed here for any that are interested in roughing it. 30 amp electric and water hookups are available with room to get a moderately large rig in. A sewer dump is situated on the way in/out of the park. There are also several small cabins on the premise for those who want to go the RV-less... Read More →
Life on the Open Road, Advice From A Full Time RVer
Ahh, the dream of the adventures of the open road! For some it remains a lifelong dream which for one reason or another never sees fulfillment, but for those lucky enough to live that dream, their lives are forever enriched with countless experiences. We are approaching our one year anniversary on the road. For us, it was a life changing decision brought on by unexpected medical circumstances, and many long talks, before finally deciding that we were ready to actually do this. So, we sold our house, got our motor home and headed out for our new adventures.
The first year has certainly produced many experiences we will never forget and has definitely given us hindsight knowledge... Read More →
Full Time Rver Supplies Easter Celebration Ideas
I’m lucky this year that I’ll be spending Easter with my family in Louisiana.
Being a mother of 7 children and 9 grandchildren I’ve always loved holidays and had to be creative when coming up with ideas that adults and children both enjoy.
We always incorporated games that all could play. We had the basic Easter egg hunt but hid eggs for the older young adults in much harder places. The easy eggs had change in them as the kids usually always had plenty of candy already. The hard hidden eggs had dollars in them and of course the Gold egg had a five dollar bill in them.
Since the older kids knew that the way hid eggs had just change they left those alone for the younger kids.

The Tabasco Factory On Avery Island Leaves Traveling Teen With Fond Memories
The Tabasco Factory in Louisiana is one of the first tours my family ever went on when full timing. Not so much because we love spicy hot sauce, it just happened to be close by when we started officially traveling full timing. Our first visit here was almost three years ago, but we also were able to visit here again a few months ago. So don’t worry, this review is fairly up to date.
The Tabasco factory is located on Avery Island a few hours away from New Orleans. Avery Island contains not only the fields that grow all the peppers for Tabasco Sauce; it also holds the only factory in the world that makes Tabasco Sauce! Every bottle of the spicy sauce came from Avery Island! The condiment... Read More →

Red Lobster 1460 East Shaw, Fresno CA Receives 5 Stars From Full Time RVer
We have not eaten at a Red Lobster in years. The last time we ate at one was to celebrate my sons 18th birthday. The same son that we celebrated his 33rd birthday by taking him to Red Lobster in Fresno CA. We arrived on a Saturday evening at 8 p.m. and were told we might have a half hour wait. We were delighted to discover it was closer to 5 minutes! While we waited we watched the live lobsters wiggle and climb around in the aquarium tank. Memories of the delicious lobster meals prepared our taste buds for an enticing treat. We were soon seated in a cozy booth by a gracious charming waiter. He took our drink orders and within moments we were sipping raspberry lemonades and discussing what tempting... Read More →
Travel Off The Beaten Path And Discover Salvation Mountain In Slab City
When my family first started our full timing adventure in 2010 we had not been to that many unusual places, we had only been full timing for a couple of months and had either been in AZ with family or visiting more mainstream attractions. Of course we soon learned to travel off the beaten path and explore more hidden places, and one of the first unique places we visited was Salvation Mountain.
Salvation Mountain is -shockingly- a mountain, but it is not a normal mountain. Located in CA not far from Slab City, Salvation Mountain is actually a project that was created by a man named Leonard Knight. Leonard is a man who loved God and wanted to spread his message that God is Love. Leonard... Read More →
Traveling Teen’s Birthday Celebration At Madam Tusseaude Wax Museum in Los Angeles
Last year for my siblings and mine sixteenth birthday we were in LA and our parents gave us a few choices of fun things in the area that we could do. Unanimously we all chose the wax museum! We have been seeing the Madam Tusseaude Wax Museums literally from our first year of full-time traveling. It seems that every single big city that we go to has one of these! We always had said we would visit one someday, and this was the day!
We were lucky because before we even got to the museum we encountered a person walking the streets outside the museum giving out coupons- If you used them every person got five dollars off of the Madam Tusseaude Wax Museum ticket! It was a great deal, and it helped... Read More →
