R’n’R - you know rants and raves.This month once again, we have been in Chicagoland area, at home. Quite a wide range of topics in this Episode - from digital cameras to diesel vs gas to credit card use. We have replaced or added to our digital camera collection. We are always looking to improve our photographs via new hardware. We don’t take many photos with our cell phones but we like the current crop of digital cameras. Small, light, and excellent quality. We also upgraded our major credit card this month. After quite alot of comparison shopping, we’ve settled on the Chase Reserve - expensive, yes, but worth the month with our lifestyle.We share our views of the gas vs diesel debate in the form another rant. Sorry.Yes we have some strong views and as always we share. Because we are not encombered with advertisers, we can give you the straight scoop but always from our point of view. Please feel free to share back to us, we want to hear from you via the email or Google plus.

Yes, still at our summer home. Yes, we do listen to podcasts beyond those that are about RVing. What are our favs beyond the RV Navigator? We tell all. We also pick up on several trending topics including hot skin, water heaters, new apps, and long term RVing with an interview with the original RV Navigator groupies, Geof and Ellyn. Their RVing lifestyle has changed since the last report, but they are still on the road much of the year from their home base in Florida. Loads of great news from the world of RVing in Gillette WY for the FMCA Rally. Tune in for a full report. Do you have a Honda 2000i generator - we do and it is quite old (purchased for our 5th Wheel in 2005) so it has starting problems. If you have one of these that is not used regularly (we keep ours for home power outages), you might want to add the “fuel off” accessory so that the gas doesn’t dry up and leave a residue in carb. This and lots more topics from apps to travel plans are covered in this episode of the...

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. But are we in a 43ft motorhome too long to visit the nations crown jewels, our National Parks? Big RVs can camp in our parks and we can prove it. We read the fears of new RVers that buying a big rig will keep them out of the scenic wonders of our country. We would reply, that it is easier to stay at or near NPs with a big rig. Who wants to drive a 30 class C across the Going to Sun Highway? Instead, we take our toad. One of the many reasons to stick with a big rig for see our great country. We also made a quick car trip to Florida and back to purchase a second...

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 experiencing during this boom time. We look at camping strategies to use during the busy summer months and beyond to make sure that your camping experience is a good one. We do of course have the usual array of interesting articles and topics from the last month in RVing.

Thanks to al for enduring last months poor sound quality. I have solved the problem so we are back to a quality sound track this month. The problem boiled down to a defective card reader. Who knew!Riding the high seas in the Pacific on the way to Hawaii is our location today. After a hectic month in Australia visiting the major sites of Tasmania and Australia, we boarded our 23 day cruise and headed to Seattle. We have had the pleasure of meeting several listeners on our trip down under. It was great fun to visit our long time listeners, Al and Sue at their home in Newcastle (2.5 hrs drive north of Sydney) and have lunch with another listener Chris. It is amazing that we have such loyal listeners so far from our home. They made us feel very welcome and at home. Al and Sue have just purchased a motorhome for their retirement travels in Australia. RVing in Australia is very popular (and we would be called Gray Nomads) with many campgrounds and free camping areas. Although their RVs are very different from ours due to different conditions,...
