Hi Everyone;
This is Patty and I have been RVing for 6 years now. Just about everything I now know about RVing I learned the hard way! I can look back now and laugh, but believe me it wasn’t funny at the time!
When I started RVing I was a 50 something year old widow, alone and desperate to fulfill my dream of travel, kayaking and bicycling.

I am going to tell about my experiences in the hope that all of you can learn and/or have a good laugh!

During check-in the desk attendant had mentioned several times about bear awareness and safety precautions. I made special efforts to hide my concerns because I didn’t want to alarm my sister, but deep inside I was a little scared. Returning from going out to dinner, I opened a bottle of bubbly Moscato and we settled down to watch “The Great...

Starting off with a BANG!

Posted 04-20-2019 at 02:03 PM by Patty1161 (Reality RVing)

My very first RV trip started off with a BANG, literally! With my sister (unwillingly) and the 17FQ Viking RV in tow, I pulled out of my driveway and onto the road feeling ever so smug with the tune of “I am women, Hear Me Roar” singing in my head. Suddenly, I heard a loud bang and a scraping sound that ended with a bump to my truck’s back end. We both jumped out thinking we had been hit by another car, only to find the RV unhitched and sitting half on the road and shoulder.
My township’s...
