I have been posting articles on varying aspects of the RVing lifestyle since August 2010. I started not knowing if RVers and wannabes would read my articles.

Now 600 to 1,200 read my entries each day—and I truly appreciate it!

This is my 2,000th posting!

In the world of blogging—content is king, and I love creating and sharing new content on vogeltalksrving.com. So far, the well has not run dry. I have tried to ensure that what I post is worthy of your time.

RVing is the Freedom Lifestyle

Enjoy your journey—RV living is the freedom lifestyle.

Home is where you park it.

Freedom is a wonderful thing. The kind of freedom offered by the RVing lifestyle is the ultimate.

What a life. Arizona, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, New Mexico, and British Columbia. California, North Carolina, Nevada, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Alberta. South Carolina, Oklahoma, Vermont, Louisiana, Indiana, Wyoming, Iowa, Michigan, and Oregon. Ohio, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Colorado, Arkansas, Utah, New York, Washington, Virginia, Missouri, and Idaho.

No matter what you see when you look outside your window, you’re at home in your RV.

Yes, home is where you park it. And, remember, getting there is half the fun.

Whether it’s dry camping in the wilderness or enjoying the comforts of a full-hookup RV park, RV enthusiasts agree—it’s all about the joys of camping.

For some hardy souls, camping means pitching a tent, snuggling in sleeping bags, and cooking on a Coleman stove or a grill balanced on a fire ring. Yes, I’ve been there, done that!

For the rest of us—and some us have left those days behind—we freely admit to enjoying a soft queen-sized bed, a plug-in coffeemaker, home-cooked meal, and hot shower.

The best part of RV camping with all the comforts of home: my own bed, my own shower, Blue Bell ice cream in the freezer, and Shiner Bock in my cooler.

Even after six months on the road I wasn’t ready to come home. But home I am—if only for a few months.

But soon, along with Willie, we’ll be “On the road again…Just can’t wait to get on the road again”… as we start another RV journey.

Enjoy life NOW. It has an expiry date!

Many miles traveled, many miles to go.

Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you have no promise that you will see tomorrow.

Live for today and anticipate tomorrow.

LIVE IT WELL!

ENJOY TODAY!

BE HAPPY!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Worth Pondering…

What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

—lyrics by George David Weiss, George Douglas, Bob Thield; recorded by Louis Armstrong
