Howard, I have been giving my son a buzz cut for years. He's in his 20s and the cost works for him. (free) It would be my pleasure to help you out in this area, Linda is welcome to supervise. ;) Of course it would be at the family rate. Bill

I didn't realize RV for Less was going to fix your rig. Sweet! For such an important repair it's always really nice to have friends who are doing it and you know will take good care and do it right. Having connections really really helps. You are a great ad for the Jeep Liberty. If this is your 3rd one, you must really like them. Did you say what year this one is? I have a friend who wants to use one to tow a casita trailer but I'm not sure about that. Maybe she should check with you. We have a Kroger discount card and get 3 cents a gallon off gas at their stations but have never gotten a 30 cent per gallon discount. WOW, that's amazing. I need your card. :-) Or maybe it's just Tennessee.

Just a thank you. I started reading your blog back around 2007 or 2008 gaining info on full-timing. You provided us with so much info on this site.

We went full-time starting Jan 2009. Most of the time we loved it. However, there came a time when we both wanted to put down "roots" again. So in December we bought a house in northern Alabama. We are now part-timers. In fact, we are in our second week of a two month trip.

To thank you for your info on full-timing.....if you are ever traveling I65 through Alabama, we are less than 8 miles off the Interstate outside of Cullman. We live in the country (no other house in sight) on 4 acres and have two RV sites. One FHU, the other 50 amp and water (gray water on the ground). Send an email to the address below.

Again, thank you for the service you provide for RVers, both part-timers and full-timers.

I enjoy your posts on "little day-to-day things" as well as any other post. We're sending our best wishes for a satisfactory solution to the RV problems, and look forward to following you for many more years to come. The two of you, and your rallies, were a big part of our decision to full-time and we continue to enjoy every day...even the ones with problems!
Good luck and safe travels!

Thank you for the good laugh re: your haircut. It brought back memories.

We enjoy reading about what you guys are doing even after being ft now for 5 years. It good to see that you are still with us! Also, the issue with your rig is interesting as we had our frame strengthened at the 2 year old mark under warranty. Seems that Lippert/Forest river had a quiet recall of the upper frame of their large frames. We just had this work done when you weighed us in Elkart and we had gained 500 lbs from the repair. I also learned that this has been a problem with the larger Lippert frames since the mid 2000s. Ours is a 2012 build.

We are still watching/reading and wish you the best of luck!

Want to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the spring rally!! Honestly we learned so much more than we thought we would! Even if we had learn half as much we still feel like it would have been worth the trip!! The people we met totally convinced us this is a family we want to be a part of!
Thanks for everything!!

Hi Howard & Linda-
We were at your west boondocking in Quartzite, AZ. We have been patiently waiting for you to head out west again. Can you please put us on your "notification list" for the boondocking rally.

We attended a rally at Nevada Treasure in Pahrump in April 2015. It us a great park. The staff was very accommodating and easy to work with.

Hope to see guys next year.
