Thanks Howard for the words of encouragement! I can always count on you to uplift my spirits just by reading your daily post. You hit a home run for me today! We haven't given up our dream to hit the road in spite of some health and financial issues over the last couple of years. We are planning on selling our condo by next spring and buying our fist 5th wheel and truck so we can begin living our rv-dream. Thanks Howard for all that you and Linda do for all of us in the RV-Dreams family!


Howard, I enjoyed your journal today because it addresses something that we feel very strong about. In our blog yesterday I wrote about being free to give of ourselves and that is what you and Linda are doing. kudos to both of you. Thanks for the wonderful thoughts about living to the fullest.

Look where that "daily duty" of trash pick-up got you today!

We are all renewed again!
Great job Howard.....:-)

Its a pleasure to read you Howard! My guess is that you dont realise how much people you help. I am sure that what you see is just the tip of the iceberg.

Very good job!

Wow Howard you hit the nail on the head again. We have had a lot of stuff happen to us lately and your post reminded me that most of my worries are pretty small compared to others. Yes our car broke down on Friday no fixing it but we do have our truck and we will some how get something else to commute with, the septic pump went out a few months ago but we got it fixed not much left in savings anymore but we can use the bathroom. So it really is all in how you look at your circumstances and we all have a choice we just need to be happy with the choice. Thanks for all of the work you do on your web site. Someday I hope we will meet. In the mean time travel safe and always know that you both are in my prayers.

Where would that couple be right now had you not stopped to pick aluminum foil out of the fire pit and calling David surely made his day, I read all the blogs on my blog everyday and was worried about him. Thanks for ALL you do Howard and Linda.

Stay Safe

Great post. I love Uncle Dave (Ramsey). Most of us lived though Jimmy Carter years, we can live though this too.

Nice uplifting post! You keep writing the daily post as you see fit, and we'll keep readin em!

It is great that you are bringing encouragment to those you meet. Dave Ramseys' 3 points plus his religious views can make a difference in peoples lives. Through giving you receive blessings, and being debt free is good advise. Keep on sharing Howard

Howard I don't think you really know how much good you do with your RV Dreams Journal, that was a great post. I am sure many got a lot out of it. I know I did. You know it is easy to get down when things are looking so bad but we tend to forget just how well we have it. We are so lucky to have been born in the USA instead of some third world country. I know I thank the Lord every night for what he has given me. PLease keep up the good work, you are making a lot of people happy.

Howard and Linda: We so much appreciate the concern of you guys and all the RV Dreamers. The outpouring of concern, thoughts and prayers have been overwhelming.
We are recovering slowly but surely, and like they say... You can't keep a good man (and lady) down.

Thanks again ..

Howard...reading your journal and hearing you talk about working at the park and still having fun is an inspiration to those out there looking for another lifestyle to follow. I think that is what RV-Dreams is all about...isn't it? Keep up the good work.

Howard, You have many gifts and you are using them well. Thankyou for sharing them with us.
