You might get something out of this site if:

You think an awesome experience is something everyone else always has
You think adventure is looking at the ladies dainties in the Sears Catalog :)
You've got more cousins than Carters' got little pills
You find people are always telling you that you're definitely the most interesting person they've ever met
You don't like high stress jobs. Like when your husband tells you that you've got to the mow the lawn TWICE this year.

If the idea of that kind of life gets you down
Just wait until you discover what living life on the road is really like.

 

"Always follow own life plan, otherwise GPS lead you to dead end!"
--The Great Kiva

There are lots of buttons and links here, some might go somewhere, most probably don't. Even I, smart as I am :) ain't got'em all figured out yet. But like some feller said, "It ain't the destination, it's how many times you got to repair the brakes during the journey, otherwise you might not be able to stop when you get to where you didn't know you were going."

Don't worry about what this website costs. You get the RV Dreamers bug you'll learn right quick you'll need to keep every penny you got. :) But if your a real smart feller and come up with a way of gettin' people to send you money so you can live it up, keep it to yourself. Cause if someone else does it, it might chip away at your good fortune.

Oh, one last thing, if you just got to support something, Support Our Troops, they're keeping our country safe so we can live this life.

This website is dedicated to my grandpap who always said, "Boy, you got a knack for doing the dumbest things." And how could I forget my city feller cousin (the one whose name I never learned) and his cute wife :):), who gave Nilda and me the RV Dreamers bug when they told us about the Great Kiva on the day they got lost.

Hello From Nilda

Since I.M. started his blog about our decision to leave the place we had called home for all our married life, and become full time RVers, I’ve often wondered what it would be like to be able to add my own thoughts of our life to his blog. Late last night as he was working on his post for the day, I brought him a cup of coffee and started to give his back a rub. He works so very hard on his blog, and even though he seems to have very few regular readers, still, it never seems to discourage him.

He asked me a few times as he paused in his writing, if thought his blog, and in particular his spelling and grammar, were improving. It's one of the things I’ve always appreciated in I.M.,  his acknowledgment that he isn’t always perfect, and his desire to improve both his, and our life. I helped him with several grammatical constructions, as he occasionally lets his old ways slip in. The same with his spelling, and try as he might, I believe he is always going to have a problem with dropping that final g of “ing”, because that’s just who he is, or as he enjoys saying, I.M. is who I am.
 
As he was stretching his back after posting his blog and getting up from his chair, he turned around, gave me that special little boy look of his, and said, to use his exact words, “Nilda, you spend almost as much time on this here blog as I do, but I get all the credit for doin’ the writin’, maybe you should write a blog post or two sometime."


Talk about dreams coming true, it was exactly how I’d been hoping the opportunity to write a few blog posts of my own would come about, as I would never have directly asked I.M. if I could write a post for his blog. Bless his heart, he tries so hard with his writing, but other than our many relatives and friends from back home, very few people read what he writes. I’ve always thought that if I could provide some observations from a woman’s point of view, perhaps it would broaden the appeal of RV-Dreamers.

I know I.M. is anxious to start working on his blog post for today, and since he has spent most of the morning under "Ol"’ 5th Wheel, as he so fondly refers to our RV, (I wouldn’t dare tell the world what I call it),  I will allow what I've written to this point to be my first ever post on the RV-Dreamers blog. May your problems be small and your pleasures large – Nilda.

You could always start your very own blog you know.

Banjos aren't the only thing that can duel.

Merikay, if I may address you as such, I fear the result of what you suggest might have on I.M.'s fragile writing ego. He puts up a brave front, but having known him for as long as I have, I know that inside that wonderful man is someone trying to get out who is much more than the person he believes himself to be.

Maybe someday when he gains an audience equal to Amazon, as he says :), I'll start my own blog. Until that time, I'll just let boys be boys.

Thank you for your kind comments and allow me close by saying I find the sculptures that you display on your animalhead.com website to be quite delightful.
