I don’t know if I’d actually have the nerve to travel through time if it were possible, but I sure enjoy watching other people do it! Hey, Randy…. I have a 1980 something Fleetwood camper. I won’t be traveling with it, but I’d like to make the exterior look like a log cabin or at least like it’s a wood cabin. Any way to do that since there’s nowhere to nail on the outside? Thx so much!!!
Perhaps the most expensive fix for these campers is a bad floor if the exterior seems solid. Be sure to look underneath the trailer as some of them have been used or stored in the salt air along the coast and the steel frame where the bottom aluminum cover is attached can become thin as the steel can react to the aluminum.
Now, this is not to say no one knows about or goes to Lombok-on the contrary, it’s widely a touristed place in itself with some of the warmest, kindest residents I’ve encountered. However, I find that so many discussions with fellow travellers about Indonesia are dominated by talks of the inspiring yoga retreats of Bali or the stunning snorkelling on the Gilis, so I wanted to pay tribute to a place which has left such a memorable mark on my heart over the four (yes, FOUR!) years since we travelled there.
We must have looked pathetic trying to get comfortable in those seats, because the conductor came by and tried to cover that light with an Amtrak brochure. Bless his heart. When it didn’t work he promised to move us at the next stop (Savannah, GA). And he did. YAY!
The Sun. Alaska, during the summer, has very long days. It’s common knowledge. Around Anchorage, it will be dusk at 11 pm during the summer solstice. If you are travel for the summer, be prepared to be hard-pressed to sleep when it’s dark. A suggestion would be to bring a sleeping mask with you for your trip. During the winter, it is dark most of the day, so sleeping will not be a problem so much as keeping awake will be.
What better way to fund your travels in your RV or motorhome than by writing about the places you visit? It’s a win-win situation. Here are magazines or websites which buy travel articles with a slant towards RV owners. The articles can be about areas of interest accessible for RVers, road conditions, campgrounds and availability of services.
