testimonials for The Frugal Shunpikers Guides To RV Boondocking
We have the Fourwinds motor home in our driveway, now what do we do? We want to go from Michigan to Colorado Springs in December then after four weeks
After spending two months in New Mexico this year, I just released a new, fully revised, updated, and greatly expanded version of my boondocking guide for that state.
If you purchased this ebook from me at any point in the past, you never need to buy it again. I sent you an email this week with your FREE updated download. If you didn't receive it, (please check your junk/spam folder) and contact me. (Several email addresses were undeliverable.) I will need your name and old email address or other proof of purchase, please.

Hi. I am a 27 year old, British resident. I am planning a 3 month trip to USA next year, possibly going on to spend 3 on Canada before returning home.
I was so glad to find this site! I thought it was just me feeling all of these emotional challenges in our RV lifestyle! A year ago we sold our home,

The joys of no schedules. I guess some would consider taking 10 days to drive 1700 miles taking our time.
We have so many similar pictures of our time near Taos! We also visited Earthships & I made exact same comment to Joe. I thought if they showed less swirly
Cold and rainy in Taos but we search for and find silver linings.
I didn't think there were any national parks that haven't at least heard of, but this is a new one to me. Bandelier has been on my list for awhile but
Seeing the world as Georgia O'Keeffe did. Ghost Ranch - a wonderful surprise!
It seems to me that curiosity about full-time RVing and the nomadic lifestyle has increased dramatically in the last couple of years. Could it be that with the downturn in the economy there's a loss of faith in more traditional forms of "The American Dream". There certainly seem to be been a number of new TV programs on the topic.
Are you living your nomadic dream? Would you like to be on TV? Here's your opportunity.
Amazing hikes in two amazing parks: Bandelier and Kasha-Katuwe

My age is playing a bigger factor in our travels than it used to. But not in the way you might think.
Warning: RVers are very social. If you're not, this lifestyle may not suit you.

These folks requested that I share this casting call. I'm thinking the RV Manufacturers must be behind it. In case you're interested, here's the blurb:
A brand new TV show is searching for families who have recently purchased RVs. Will pay $2000 per family that is selected for the show! Email email@example.com with your name, age, location, a recent photo of your family, along with a brief description of your RV history.
In fifteen years of boondocking we've seen a lot of changes.
We are thinking of purchasing a Class A motorhome in Nevada. We live in Eastern Canada. Does anyone have any experience or advise on how we can license
California's Nacimiento-Fergusson Road is NOT suitable for RV camping
Gosh, as usual, so much is said about my husband and I, my wife and I, it hurts. It hurts because I lost my husband, grieved and now want to head out,

Free access to Federal lands is at risk with Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Modernization Act 2014
Enter to win this water-saving, high-pressure Oxygenics BodySpa RV shower head. The smart-pause feature is essential for those 'navy showers' when boondocking. Retails @ $44.00.
I'm now a retired RVer and US Citizen and I support this bill. Why? Even before I retired there were many US National Parks I couldn't visit on vacations
There is a bill before the US congress to limit the US annual Federal Lands Pass to be available only to American Citizens and US residents.
This week's Escapees RV Club newsletter announced substantial savings on membership fees (a limited time offer - valid until Oct 31). What it didn't mention is that this savings is good for renewals as well. By paying next year's fees in advance, I just saved $30.05.
For US residents, annual dues are regularly $60.00. And Canadians pay $70.00. A one-time enrollment fee of $10.00 is added the first year. But, until Oct 31, 2014, US residents pay only $29.95 and Canadians $39.95. And there's no enrollment fee.
We get great value from our Escapees membership and highly recommend it. Aside from our own club, Boondockers Welcome, Escapees is hands-down the most boondocker-friendly of all the National RV clubs.
Here is a comparison of other RV clubs.
Construction that closed Devil's Garden in Arches N.P. has been completed and trails reopened.
In my opinion, the park is becoming too popular and congestion a huge problem. Utah offers many opportunities off the beaten path (with equally-fabulous arches). In fact, we may give the park and much of the Moab area a pass next time we visit the state.
As of May, 2014, the FCC started enforcing new rules for cell phone signal boosters. I've had a few questions about it and hope this information will help. Here's the official FCC FAQ page about the ruling: http://wireless.fcc.gov/signal-boosters/faq.html
If you already own a booster you'll want to ensure you're compliant. The folks at Technomadia have taken a lot of the mystery out of it.
For this, I thank all my loyal followers! Why not become one of them?
