Sometimes that first night on the road can be epic. This photo is from the first night of a three-week, 4400 mile road trip. It had been a long day of packing, and of course we hit the road two hours later than we'd planned. Pulled into this rest stop after 8 solid hours of driving. It was virtually empty. Just us, and an 18-wheeler. The sky was boiling as we pulled in... I took the dog for a quick walk just as the wind gusts started to kick up. I turned around...

First RV

Posted 05-25-2023 at 07:27 AM by Blackfish
Tags 1*17, pnyp4g6g

A few months ago we purchased our first RV, going from a tent to a 2005 Pace Arrow. So far it has been a learning experience for us and we are loving it. The first issue we had to deal with was fitting it into our driveway. Drive has a big slope to it and I did not like parking it on such a steep angle. We have since removed the roof on half of our carport and now I can back it onto a flat surface. Still some work left to do as I want to extend the parking pad an extra 10í which require adding a...

Ever feel like throwing in the towel?

Posted 05-18-2023 at 01:49 AM by Misjudg

All day I've had it in an uneasy feeling. Can't quite put my finger on it, but I know my gut and my guts telling me something. It's like the beginning of an anxiety attack and you're just kind of preparing for yours for it to hit. It's that 7th Sense that something's telling you that something is really wrong. Has me on high alert. I definitely thought things were going to be different but I should have known. I'm not complaining I'm just wondering why everything has to be so hard. For once in my...

Soooo tired

Posted 03-29-2023 at 09:48 PM by Misjudg

Trying to keep my head up. I keep telling myself things are going to get better. I wouldn't say they haven't gotten like worse but they are definitely stagnant I'm just in limbo. I'm kind of losing my my motivation it's just tired. I think I'm going to try to get a spot at Coyote point soon I need to get a break. The only thing is I have this new squeak and it's concerning me. I don't know I am think I may have found a mechanic or someone that I could go to and I have questions somebody introduced...

Blown Tire on the 405!

Posted 03-24-2023 at 08:49 AM by BajaFog
Updated 03-24-2023 at 08:52 AM by BajaFog



We RVírs hear about China Bombs, tires that blow up on you. I think we hope it never happens to us but have that concern in the back of our minds. Our rig was rolling on a set of factory installed Westlake tires. Research will show one that they are no better or worse than any other tire out there, though there are Facebook experts that will tell you differently.

I keep my towing speed...

Getting Married

Posted 03-22-2023 at 07:05 AM by 208rv (208rv TMI)

Although we never dated, we were married in 1993. That is another story for another time. I knew that all of my buddies that were successful in the trucking industry had failed in their home life, so I came off the road. Dori already had three kids when we married and when she became pregnant with our first child, I started changing careers in order to be home more. Every change that gave me more time with my wife and family cut my income by 50% or more. I was happy...and broke. Lucky for us, both...

Gosh darn it to heck already!

Posted 02-24-2023 at 02:10 AM by Misjudg

From 90 mph winds to mmega rain. From new battery now my tail lights won't shut off . From storms from hell to loosing both vents, bad roof job that leaks, most defenantly water damage. .. and top it off with trying to find work, surviving on pennies yet I don't qualify for food stamps? Unemployment is a joke. The system is failing and I'm watching it from the front lines. Setting up for failure. Sooo whats next? Lol.
When I chose Rving I didn't plan on so much bad happening....

Motorhome Rallies - The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Posted 02-15-2023 at 06:53 AM by dbteam

We've now been to Newmar, AIM and FMA (Fleetwood) rallies. As past event planners, we enjoy seeing how others run their events. Last month, we attended the AIM rally in Chiefland, Fl (pre-Show), the Newmar Kountry Klub Rally during the Super Show and then the Fleetwood Rally post show. We've been to 4 Aim rallies and these are our favorites. We attended an AIM rally in Biloxi MS and the night we had dinner at The Reef restaurant, there was a 7 pc band that was outstanding. They re-appearred...

Storms over... For now 😬

Posted 01-24-2023 at 09:47 PM by Misjudg

Well... I made it so far. I fear I have significant water damage. My windowindows I thought were leaking... Well yes they were, but not like I thought. The roof had a leak and it wasn't obvious. I saw nothing from the inside. It leaked in between the walls and that's where the water was coming from. I tarped the roof best I could without blowing away ( that would be me blowing away) and now I have it off to air it out hopefully it'll dry somewhat. But I have a feeling that it's going to take more...

🎶🎵 Stormy weather 🎵🎶

Posted 01-10-2023 at 03:15 AM by Misjudg



Well heck... It's storming here in Cali. Lost my vent in bathroom (blew off). Roof now peeling. I got the stuff to fix it temporarily but the rain and more importantly the wind. Try first thing in morning. That's got me worried. The damage the water will do. When it rains it pours ..

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Posted 12-24-2022 at 02:30 AM by Misjudg

Thank you all for your support and help in my journey. I've had a lot of set backs and grief and without all your knowledge I surely wouldn't have made it this far. I'm hoping in the new year I'll have more positive things to share. From day one you've given me support that I much needed to keep going. Thank you from my heart. Many blessings to you all.

Much love and respect,

First "disaster" in the RV

Posted 10-29-2022 at 07:54 PM by HarryStone

Ok, not so much a disaster, but it's the first time we had to stop a trip because of an issue. We were on the road home from Ca. for my mom's memorial service, and got to Albuquerque at about 2 PM. and the Tire Minder system alarmed to a tire that was losing pressure. I pulled over on interstate 40, right in the middle of downtown Albq, at the start of the off ramp for Carlisle Blvd. After I got stopped, the pressure went from 40 to zero in about 30 seconds. Called Progressive roadside assistance,...
