Thinking of moving into an RV? If so, there are nine basic things you need to know before you make the leap from standard living to motor home or camper living. When purchasing a coach, always measure the ratio of slide rooms to wall space and check to see how much weight is on any one side of the coach. In addition, make sure that the slides have basement storage compartments attached to them. Otherwise, access will be difficult.
On March 5th, 2011 for the third time I found and ran a `Time Traveler’ picture on Barf Stew (one of my blogs). Once again, like the original `Time Traveler’ picture run by Forgetomori in 2010 – it was of a `Hipster’ someone. That person of special interest dressed in a special manner for the times of the day. In this case, a person inappropriately dressed for the beach and looking like a fashion model from decades in the future of 1915. In this case, unlike the John Lennon `Time Traveler’ picture – where the Time Traveler seems to be `alone’ in a crowd – this time around the Time Traveler is the very center of attention.

For a lot of us, travelling is incredibly important. Not only is it an excellent way to relax and have fun, but it’s also a great way to learn more about the diversity of human life. The biggest, and maybe even one of the only legitimate issues when it comes to travelling is the cost. Anyone who has travelled anywhere knows the cost that comes with travelling. Whether it’s gas or plane tickets, life on the road can really add up after awhile. If you’re someone who is interested in travelling, but don’t want to work a lifetime or spend all your savings, keep reading for excellent tips and tricks on how you can get your travel legs on for less.
The first thing you should do when you’re looking to travel more without breaking the bank is to evaluate your interests. Look at what is important to your when it comes to travelling, and ask yourself what is the most important factor in travelling. If you’re someone who wants to travel and live the life of luxury, you’re probably not going to be able to travel as much as someone who is more interested in the different aspects … Read more
It is extremely important to learn how to load and pack your recreational vehicle both from comfort and safety standpoints. I opted for a traditional application acrylic paint in a semi-gloss finish on the walls and high-gloss on the cabinets. I chose the high-gloss against my design preference because the paint store rep promised the finish would be tougher. I tried both roller sponges and paint brushes and prefered the brush finish to the orange-peel effect of the sponge roller. Neither had as nice a finish as the spray paint. If I could have gotten my chosen color scheme for the cabinets in spray paint I would have done all the cabinets with spray paint for the final color.
This is how I roll. I’m not the most confident driver. Part of my love for the Shasta Compact is that 1) it was within the towing capacity of my small RV (the Toyota Rav4), and 2) its compactness makes towing a bit less intimidating. Usually these companies offer a variety of plans from which to choose, but even the least expensive and most basic will get the job done for you.

Spontaneous holidays are always great, especially if it’s somewhere you’ve never been before. Living in Tokyo, Japan, the Philippines is only a four hour flight away, and after deciding we wanted to go somewhere with a beach, we booked a four-night stay on Cebu Island in the Philippines. If you require medication for any back condition and for pain make sure you carry enough for the duration of your travels and take some extra in case of delays. Ensure you carry your medications in your hand luggage and in their original labelled containers. Check with airline before booking your flights for the latest regulations on this. Do take all your back care medications and anything else that helps your back pain and sciatic nerve symptoms, like heat pads, with you in hand luggage.

Many of us cannot afford those fancy motorhomes and luxurious travel trailers even though we do love to visit America’s great state and national parks. Fortunately for us DIY types, there are many used or classic travel trailers and other type campers for sale which merely need a little fixing up and modernizing to make them comfortable and safe for our families to enjoy. With the AC unit removed, the four pieces of angled steel were inserted into the ceiling and attached to the replacement ¾ x 4” ceiling joists and covered with new luan paneling. Book your flight, if possible together with your dog and no stop over in any country to avoid stress for your pet and for yourself.

People travel for many reasons – for education, curiosity, to help others, to have adventures, and to some places to get healthier. Any type of travel is likely to be ruined, though, if contaminated water leads to intestinal problems, as happens with 20-50% of travellers per year (Wikipedia). You can prevent that possibility by packing a portable water filter of some kind. If your car has a lumbar support which is adjustable that is good but if not a lumbar support cushion will work as well to give extra support for your bad back. If you are hiring a car you can check this out beforehand or bring your own cushion to custom your seat.
Hi Elaine. What do you mean by tax? We paid I think 200 Pesos or more in the airport in the Bureau of Animals but I can´t remember anymore how much exactly we paid. It was not much though. Good luck to your plan of bringing your dog to our home country. Thanks for dropping by.

As the AnomalyMan on Squidoo/HubPages, I’d like to welcome you to my original URL page on this platform. At that time (in 2006) this page was called Anomalies, ParaNormal and Mind Perceptions – and featured three or four `anomalous’ links for readers to browse daily. Indeed, this was one of Squidoo’s original most popular pages. And, Anomalies, ParaNormal and Mind Perceptions carried on in that manner for a number of years and spawned a number of similar pages started by myself. (Look for the anomalous creature logo.) However eventually, I moved most of my daily blogging to the platform. But, I still wanted to do something special with my original page on Squidoo/HubPages – something that would do the AnomalyMan URL name proud. The prices are generally very reasonable, and although you may be able to bargain a little, haggling is not a big part of the culture. The Night Market is a great place to stock up on local crafts and support the local economy. With these natural sites nearby, it’s easy to enjoy nature by using Luang Prabang as a base. When you’re done exploring, return to the city in the evening for a coffee, croissant, and stroll … Read more
Whether you’re headed just for a short trip by car, flying to a different state, or traveling oversees, this will help pack all the essentials you might need and not to forget things. Our train was to leave Jacksonville at 10:57 pm. I allowed for travel time to the station (1 hour). And I figured I should allow one extra hour for waiting in lines. What a wonderful way to travel, on to reading some more of your wonderful list. Thank you for going ahead and putting it all up for us to read like this. I so love having my travel ideas all in one place. This is totally awesome.
Great collection of travel pillows and aye masks. I prefer those made of cotton. They help minimize wrinkles in clothing and encourage road warriors to fold their clothes neatly and keep them that way during the trip when not being worn. I was contemplating doing the panel upholstery myself but instead found a professional. It wasn’t very expensive and you get what you pay for. He even made the pockets out of fabric left over from the couch upholstery.

Fancy heading off somewhere a little different on your travels? Sick of the usual drab hotels or mundane apartments? Well, there are plenty of places around the world that will get you out of your comfort zone, ranging from the slightly quirky to the out-and-out bonkers (we’re looking at you, giant wooden beagle). We paid premium for this little gem… mainly because we’re not the handiest folks and knew that there would be very little we could do ourselves. When we searched for a Shasta our biggest red flag to avoid was any sign of water damage inside. I’d seen many a video about people’s renovation horrors and knew I wasn’t up to that level of reconstruction. I can barely find a philips screwdriver in my house.
Hi Prescilla! You have to write to the U.S. Embassy or send an e-mail to them, asking about what you need for bringing your dog with you to Hawaii.

You can even google the information. I am sure that they will tell you … Read more
