Post RV Travel Blog?

Do you journal regularly on your own RV travel blog? If so, I'd love if you'd post your website URL so I could check it out.

I just bought my first RV and decided I will start one for myself. You can do it for free if you don't already through Wordpress.com. It's pretty easy to learn. Since I'm a profession interwebs designer, it's comes natural for me.

I'll post mine once I get started. Mine will include everything you can imagine from becoming a first-time RV'er through the growing pains and discoveries and will progress as I become seasoned.

I have a wonderful friend younger than me (I'm in my mid-40's) who opted to sell their (she and her husband) home and work remotely while traveling on the road in their relatively new 5th Wheel trailer. She also maintains a very nice RV blog. Check it out and tell her "Don" sent ya... www.ardentcamper.com.

I run 2 blogs. One isn't a personal blog, but more geared towards people learning to RV:

Learn To RV

The second one is about our upcoming trip:

Now Or Never - a RV Tale

Thanks! I subscribed to it and will catch up on some reading. It's especially good for me as we just bought our first RV yesterday!

Great blog, thanks for sharing. I have a blog (signature) and photo gallery that I keep. We just purchased our motorhome last week and I plan to update both with our travels.

Safe travels and I look forward to reading your blog.

Hi Don,
We've been blogging all of the places we've been since the truck camper in 2010. We're now traveling in a 2012 Wildcat 5th. Enjoy!

Hey Don,
Yep, it's definitely a redirect to wordpress. One of these days I need to get it moved over to my own domain name. Is that link not working for you, or is your browser just insistent about a potential security issue?
If the redirect's not working, the direct link is smallhomebigyard.wordpress.com.
Have fun!

Must've been a glitch this morning. Works fine for me now. Thanks.

Enjoyed going through your posts. Been to all of those Texas locations though not necessarily camp grounds, being a native Texan. Interesting reading about Wheatland. My old friend in Colorado was a basketball star from there. Never knew anything about the place until I met him. This is only the second time I heard anything about the place!

Save spot with Class B or C

How do you notify people that you must leave your camping spot for the day, but will be back with a Class B or Class C ? No fun in arriving and finding someone on your site. This would be mainly for Canada or US sites.

Welcome,

We just made up a sign on the computer and had it laminated by Staples. Says "This site taken we will be returning in a bit, thanks"

Use a sharpie to put the date we will be there on it so they know it was recent.
