I just started planning a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton NP's. We're leaving from the SF Bay Area and I'm trying to map a route and I don't want to drive all that way without doing any sightseeing on the way. (We're not necessarily taking a direct route. The northwest is up for grabs.) For anyone who has traveled in the northwest...any recommendations on where to stop or what to see? Thank you!

Thanks Joel! I think my husband is looking at a "hot spot" through Verizon.

Hello, Just wondering what kind of internet connection you use? Also, if anyone uses a computer to work from the road can you share what kind of internet connection you use? (We can't use satellite due to VPN) Thanks!~Laurene

When I retired last year my friend Ed and I decided to buy motor homes and live in them full time. I have a 34 ft Bounder and he has a 29 ft Monaco. He owns 4 acres in Spring Branch, Tx. Moved there no rent good well and septic. We are having a ball, lots of wildlife around and great sunsets.

There's a place in Southern California called "Slab City" where a lot of RV'ers winter, if anyone is interested.

Thank you for your response, Joel. We will definitely be talking to an accountant. I'm not sure if the RV we are looking to buy is a 4 season or not, I'll have to ask. I know one of the 2 we looked at was 4 season, but the dealer did not comment on the one we want. We will most likely stay in or around California the first year, since that's where we're from, and once we've worked out the "kinks" we'll venture out. We're a little anxious, but looking forward to the adventure. Thanks again!~Laurene

My husband and I are seriously discussing going full time. We have been trying to think of all the considerations that go with such a life style. One of the things we were wondering about is whether or not the interest on an RV loan for a full-timer can be written off on our taxes. Does anybody know or do this? We have a 5th wheel now, but are considering buying a new one before going on the road.

Hello Everyone, I'm fairly new to the website. I'm seriously considering trying out this outdoor living lifestyle. Hoping to learn from people who are doing it and learning from their experiences. I have a million questions. How many of you are doing this and how to you find work as you travel? What about Internet, is there a trick or do you just look for wifi areas... this is all new to me but I am preparing for a change and am putting on my thinking cap. Any pointers or tips would be so appreciated. Thanks! :)

If someone would have told me 4 years ago that we would be full time RVers, I would have laughed my self silly. NOT SO TODAY! Our life is simply an adventure! Each day holds a new experience, more good ones than bad. **** One of the most IMPORTANT things we learned on our 1st road trip....Make sure that the valve stems in the tires on your trailer (we have a 27.5' 5th wheel) are the ones with metal in them. For some reason, the tires on our 5th wheel had the wrong valve stems...after one days delay, and $130.00 later, we were on our way once again.
