I’m Ron Jones and I’ve been RVing a long time—that is, I got up off the ground and started camping on wheels in 1962 in this Nimrod trailer (yes, that is my 1962 Corvair).
It was basic but fun—and I was not sleeping on the ground. Sandy (wife) and I have been fulltiming since early in 2003. We meander everywhere across the USA and Canada in our diesel pusher. I stay busy. Here’s my info…
Ron has retired (several times). He is retired Army (medical, 1970), retired Senior Professor of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas (1998), and retired publisher (2006). Ron’s hobbies are traveling, cooking, good wine, photography, writing, and eating out, and enjoying a good, local microbrewed beer.
Ron writes (a lot). He was a columnist for Coast-to-Coast RV magazine, had feature articles published in Motorhome, Highways, Family Motor Coaching, and Escapees magazines, and was a contributor to the Good Sam Website (both for Weekly RV Tips and CyberSam articles) and RV Traveler newsletter. He has written eleven books including numerous textbooks for public schools and colleges, how-to books, co-authored the best-seller RV book entitled “All the Stuff You Need to Know About RVing,” with Rob Lowe, was a collaborator with Sandy on “Wrinkle-Free RV Laundry,” wrote “Fulltiming for New and Used RVers,” “RVing to Alaska,” “RVing to Newfoundland,” and “Becoming a Fulltime RVer—A New Lifestyle.”
I love this stuff and this lifestyle. In our seminars, I tell people that my last drive in my RV will be to the nursing home door where I will hand them my keys and they can help me inside.
