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.

Understanding the Great Kiva

As we was a sittin’ there like all the rest of the people, a wondering when the Great Kiva was a gonna start sharing he/she/it/they's wisdom with us, when Nilda gives me a more than just hard nudge, and whispers loud enough for a deaf man to hear, “Look at this.” She was a waving this paper in front of me, one of many that were a sitting on the chair when we sat down. I hadn’t paid them no nevermind, figuring they was just there to keep the dust off the seats that seemed to be in the air everywhere in this place.

Nilda is a pointing specicifically at one of them many pieces of paper, and saying something about it not being the Jehovah Kiva, but the Jovika Kiva. Now I might have that mixed up just a might because there were so many papers there that we ended losing about half of them before we got back to the Gulch, one of which had what Nilda was showin’ me at the time. Apparently this Jovika Kiva, two in one thing was mighty important because that paper just went on and on about all he/she/it/they had done. Gawd, I wished I wouldn’t have lost that paper so I would know what to call he/she/it/they or whatever. That’s why we decided that if having called it the Great Kiva before we set out to find it was good enough then, it was good enough now, even if it were really a Jovika Kiva.

All of a sudden like, the white topped Kiva half starts a talking, and just as he’s a getting warmed up, and we’s a hanging on his every word, he pauses to take a deep breath and that red topped Kiva half takes up right where he left off and afore we know’d it he/she/it/they is going on just like the white topped half Kiva never said a thing. Now, it weren’t a confusin’ thing, but it was all I could do not to bust out laughin’ once or twice at how all them white tops in the audience was a flopping back and forth from one side of the room to the other trying to watch which Kiva half was a speakin’ at the moment.

All this time Nilda is takin’ notes so that we’d be able to study up on what was going on, which was the dangdest thing. Like when the Great Kiva got to talkin’ about taking a computer in a mobile, mobile home. Kiva, the he half, asked, “Can I take a Computer in my mobile, mobile home? And as all them white heads swivel over to the red topped Kiva to hear the answer, the white topped Kiva starts talking about peripherals, modems, connectors, desks and fastening it in with a seatbelt. You think you’re confused reading about it here, you should have seen the looks on all them people a sittin’ there a listenin’ to the he/she/it/they Great Kiva.

Then just when it didn’t seem it could get any less interesting, the white half Kiva pauses and the red half Kiva jumps right in with desktops, laptops, folding tops, air ride hard drives and crashes. I’m here to tell you, Nilda and me didn’t have a clue as to what that were all about, but there sure did seem to be a lot of heads a noddin’ up and down in the audience in agreement with the he/she/it/they Kiva’s words.
I hadn’t but a second’s pause to recollect my thoughts after getting’ distracted by them bouncing heads, when the white he half Kiva is back again, not talking about computers, but about how this mobile, mobile home thing is an adventure. Heck it weren’t just the mobile, mobile home thing that was an adventure, it was an adventure just learnin’ about the mobile, mobile home life, and that don't include tryin' to foller that he/she/it thing.

Alrighty then, just when Nilda and me thought the Great Kiva was finished, the red half Kiva starts going on, close as I can recollect, about what you could experience with this computer thing, like fuel stops, marshmellows and singing songs. Where in the world that last part came from, I had no idea, but deciding they was a finished, I started a clappin’, which must have been some kind of secret mobile, mobile home signal we didn’t know about, cause immediately all them heads that was a nodding up and down in the audience, snapped up like they had a rubber band attached.

As a memento, we bought a book that Jovika Kiva had writ about what they/he/she/it was a talkin’ about, hoping that studying up on it would help us as we started our soon to be, new mobile, mobile home life. To this day it is still one of our prized possessions, what with the words the red topped Kiva half wrote on one of the front pages, “To I.M. and Nilda – Enjoy the journey. – Jovika Kiva.” It just don’t get no better than that.
