    New traveler here, doing a 13 wk contract in Fairfax area. Do you know of any RV spots w/ full hook ups near this area for a 30' Gulf Stream? I hear Hillwood is sketchy at best, and most others only allow 14 day stays.

I have a bunch of rules for owning a Motor Coach. We have owned a coach for nine years.

I can create a new bunch of rules for buying one both used and new because I have experience at buying both.

I have no rules for full-timing it I don't have a clue ... not yet, anyway.

We have made some serious decisions in the last few months that have told us that full-timing it could very well happen at some point in our future. That point may be sooner than...

Rule 4: Owning a motor coach is a never-ending learning experience -- continued.

Well, I had so much fun coming up with a list of things that I have learned over the five years that my wife and I have been motorhoming, I figured why not write down a few more? So here goes:

I have learned that men need a precise set of directions when parking the coach.
And women know just how to give them. For example:

I SAID STOP! STOP! DONT YOU KNOW WHAT STOP...

If you have been reading my earlier blog entries, you know that I have said that a motor coach will improve your life, if you let it. I said it will improve your life in many ways. Your coach can take you to places you might not think to go to if you traveled like most “normal” people, carrying your bags and staying in hotels. It can also help you to make friends. Recently for Diane and I, our coach has done both.

This has been a rough year for the two of us. Mike, my...

Number 4. (Maybe the Last Rule!)
Owning a Motor Coach is a never ending learning experience.
And just when you think you know it all you find out just how stupid you really are.

I have learned a lot about my coach, more than I ever wanted to know. I have had to study the mechanics of my engine, my slides, and my power seats as well as learn how it is wired for Surround Sound and cable TV. How it is plumbed including the icemaker, the fresh water tank, the whole coach...

You know the old saying; its the Journey not the Destination.
There is a church two doors down from us. The church allows us to hook up our tow in their parking lot and we leave from there. It is quite convenient. When Diane and I have a trip it starts for us the moment we leave the church parking lot. Actually it starts the moment we start packing up the coach, no, it starts the moment we start thinking about THE TRIP.
The trip, made up of two important parts, the route, and the...
