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.

A Word From Nilda

Several nights past, I.M. was sitting at the computer staring at his blog, but from his posture I could tell he was troubled. Everyone who knows I.M., whether as a relative or through his writing, knows that he is a person who looks at the bright side of things to the point of seeing that which is unseen by everyone else. When I asked him what was wrong, while at the same time rubbing his shoulders and back to help him relax, he just pointed to the screen.

This was so uncharacteristic of I.M. that I knew something was deeply troubling him. I knew I.M. would talk about what it was when he wanted to, and after a few minutes he turned around, relating that he was feeling bad because he knew I wanted to write an occasional blog entry for RV-Dreamers:):):), but he gets so involved in his own writing that he sometimes forgets about what my dreams are. Those few words, so packed with emotion and feeling, are one of the things that makes I.M. so special in ways that people who don’t really know him can never understand.

While I will keep those special parts of I.M. to myself, and if that is being selfish, so be it, the result of our conversation was that I.M. has proposed that I write an occasional blog post. Even though I.M. had done this once before I would never remind him of that or that he promptly forgot about it after I had written a post, and so I told him I would be thrilled to add a post on occasion if he would like. I knew the answer would be yes, which his eyes affirmed before he said the words, and so I hope you will not mind if from time to time something a little different appears as a post on these pages.

I have several ideas as to what type of subjects I would like to cover, though I sincerely hope that it will be more in the vein of sharing with you, and talking with you than merely words on a computer screen. To that end, I.M. has proposed that I write a “weekly column” and has already asked me to write my first column. I will leave it at this for now, and hope to visit with you again next week.

What Kind of Full Time RV’er are You? Part IV

I.M. are a hopin' y'all didn't gets the wrong impressionables from yesterday's post and think that if'n someonebody has a big RV mobile, mobile home theys thinkin' theys better than y'all. Most folks that are a livin' this life on the rode are just plaine aw shucks type of folks, but that don't mean there ain't some that do figures theys better. Anyone body that reeds them RV reviews and where the person writin' the review are a puttin' down "permanents' as theys always a seemin' to call them, knows what I.M. are a meanin'. Them folks think there's only one to Rv and it are their way, which are why I.M. hopes they soon becomes our next kind of RVer, the we were's.

The we were’s we don’t run into much, but thems the folks that has parked their mobile, mobile home fer the last time, and are breathin’ a site of relief cause they don’t have to wonder no more what’s around the next bend in the road. Course if they had a piece of junk like old 5th Wheel they’d a been happy to see the next bend in the road cause that would mean they ain’t broke down yet. Some folks become we were's right quick, but most I bins ease into it over a good number of years, a slowly travelin' less each year.

Now like I was a sayin’ in the beginnin’, this is all from the bloggers and the like, plus folks me and Nilda meet along the rodes of life. I.M. thinkin’ of writin’ more on this in the future, maybe a fillin’ you in on what them categories should really be. Cause you may think you know what full time RV classification you fall into, but it takes a writin’ genius like I.M. to help you understand what it are you really are even though y’all don’t think ya are. As always, I.M.unhesitatingly helpin' the unfortunately unknowledgeable unwittingly understand the unintentionally unknowable.

Ifnheels, The RV Series 004

Havin’ left the dreamers stage behind we move on to the next great step for full time mobile, mobile home kind of person, the ifnheel. Now understands that we ain’t actually at the stage of bein’ a full time mobile, mobile RV full timer, but then a baby has gots to do a little wobblin’ and a toddlin’ afore it gets to runnin’ fer its ownself.

If’n y’all were to take a poll on who it are that are a wantin’ to take up this full time lifestye the results would like as not be a surprise to yer preconvinced notions. Fer the sake of this here dessertation I.M. are about to pounce upon you unsuspectin’ reeders, it will be limited to them folks that has been married fer a quite some time. Howsoever, ifnheels can come in lots of different variations, so don’t be all that surprised if’n y’all see someonebody yer a knowin’ in these writin’s.

Takin’ up directly from the RV Dream stage, it don’t take long afore you will encounter the first road block, and you will notate how I.M. are able to weave many things that the future full timer are likely to run into in to his narration of all this. Now to reach this here point you were a workin’ hard for most of yer life, a puttin’ in some hours that were sometimes a feelin’ like they was more than the actual hours in a day. That dream were to throw all that to the fore winds and ride the wave off onto the sunrise.

Y’all had enough of them bawlin’ babies and wild teen agers, the cookin’ the bakin’ and the never endin’ laundry. On them vacations or weekend camper outings you had, you was a workin’ just as hard as you normally did. So now you was lookin’ forward to a real vacation, a permanent vacation called retirement when the workload would be shared between the two of you. That where when that roadblock I.M. had a illusioned to is likely to come up, the ifnheel. And in the next part of this two part discussion, we will explore this strange critter, and the possibility of using a 2x4 to cure what are ailin’ him.

What Kind of Full Time RV’er are You? Part III

I.M knows he kind of left all y’all a might bit broken up’ yesterday, but unfortunately that are the way the walnut hull sometimes cracks. Howsoever with the extra time to write, this here post were expansioned to include never here before unseen data of the type only I.M. can provide, and with that, we will pump that tire back up and take off from where I.M. left off yesterday, which were that we was gonna be discussin’ the I bins.

It are the I bins that me and Nilda see the mostly of, whenever Ol’ 5th Wheel runs long enough to get to an RV park without breakin’ down, which ain’t very often, let I.M. tell you. You can usually tell these I bins cause they got some map a showin’ on their mobile, mobile home thats got all these colored things a coverin’ up all the places where the states of these here United States is a supposed to be. Fact is that some of them also tries to hide parts of Canada, mostly I.M. are thinkin’ cause that’s a might easier since them patches is so big they put on that country up there, so each one covers up a lot more. All of which makes it look like y’all been to a while lot more places than ya actually been.

This I bins tend to be right friendly folks, tellin’ ya all kinds of things ya really didn’t either need to know nor want to know, and all that about folks you’d be most likely to never meet or places you’ll probably never see. Now before you think all these folks is like that, lots of them is right regular folks like me and Nilda, whose one of them ourownselves. It’s some kind of badge of honor for them I bins to say that they been a doing this full time thing longer than whosoever they is a talkin’ to at the moment. Though with me and Nilda always a worryin’ about where to get parts for Ol’ 5th Wheel and the like, we leave the, we’s better than you jabber, to them fellers in the gaudy big mobile, mobile homes that’s main purpose in life is to act like their better than all we'alls even though they ain’t.

What Kind of Full Time RV’er are You? Part II

Now I figure there are a lot of you folks out there that totally understand what all them words and phrases mean, but this here suppository is bein’ writ' for them that’s not very familiarity with what them things mean, leavin’ it for someone like I.M. who has such a ponderous way with words, to help ‘em find their way through that jumble. With that in mind, lets get out that telescope and take a much closer and more magnificent look at someof them folks, startin' with the wanna bee.

Talkin' to the uniformed, a wanna bee are a buzzin’ around proclaimin’ to anyone that will listen that they wants to be one of them full timers some day. But them folks ain't just full of hot air, but has many of the triats of the worker bee. So just how are a gonna bee, more like a worker bee? Maily cause it are a making a beeline for the full time way of livin, a sellin’ things right and left while a droolin’ over them mobile, mobile homes.

On the other hand, the joinin’ ya’s has already sold off or give away all their worldly processions, and are in the process of takin’ delivery of one of them mobile, mobile homes that a shiny shoe'd salesman connived them into believin’ that it were exactly what all the folks a doin the same thing as them were a buyin’, even though it was a sittin’ on his lot collectin’ dust for a couple of years.

So’s I.M. don’t overwhelms the empty headed minds of the folks this in-depth discussion are endangerin’, I.M. well be given yer over worked brain a nights rest and will be publicating more on this subject tomorrow. I.M. knowing yer probably so anxious to reed it you won’t be able to sleep, but that are just the way the tire goes flat. :)

What Kind of Full Time RV’er are You? Part I

One of the most importantest services that I.M. can provide to the RV mobile, mobile home world are to help them understands just what it are that theys gettin' into. Then theres the ones that are already a doin' it but might be confusioned what with all there is to know. I.M. thinkin' that keepin' it simple are somethin' that no onebody else can do as simple as I.M. can, with that, here are something simple, for the simple, by the simple.

When you first hears that siren call that’s a luring you into the world of the mobile, mobile home life, all you can think of is how wonderful it are gonna be. There are freedom. There are open roads. There are campfires every night. There are no more goin’ to work. There are no more lawn mowin’. There are lots of golfin', leastaways if'n ya can get some other folks to pay for yer a doin' it. That list goes on and on, though mostly in yer ownselfs mind. Now I.M. don’t want to abuse ya of the notion that it ain’t what it are cracked up to be, but it ain’t.

The main reason bein’ that there are more than one type of person a lookin’ at leapin’ into this here life or, puttin’ it another way, jumpin’ head first into a bayou that’s plum full of polar bears. Simplified as only I.M. can do it, y’all got to be askin’ yerownself if when you look out into that swamp that are the fulltime RV mobile, mobile lifestye, do I see swamp creatures or polar bears? But it are even worser than that, on account of the fact that most folks don’t even see the swamp, instead they sees a grand sunset over a wonderful lake.

During the prodigal amount of research I.M. does to write this here blog better and hopefully pick up another reader or two, I.M. comes across a whole bunch of the them bloggers fellers, plus just plain folks in them campgrounds that is talkin’ bout wanna bees, gonna bees, and I’m a joinin’ ya’s. Then there’s the I bin’s and we were’s which are usually spokened of with a tear in the eye, or a shake of the head followed by some remark by the person talkin’ that they just don’t understands how the person they’s talkin’ bout could give up this here wonderful life on the road and go back to livin’ their old way. And tomorrow we are gonna be takin' a look at these folks under a telescope.

Still More FAQ’s

I.M has become more and more awares that most folks has a real hunger fer informations about this RV mobile, mobile home lifestye that I.M. knows so much more about than nearly anyone else a writtin’ blogs these days. That were why when he were a realizin’ just how good his blog were recently, he had the briefest thought of abandonin’ what he were a doin’ and a takin’ up the fulltime writer feller life in the big city. The lure of all that money were there, but then he couldn’t be out a livin’ the mobile, mobile life as he would have to be doin’ librarianing and other researches all the time.

Thus I.M. are a goin’ to be continually doin’ what I.M. does best, effortlessly and enigmatically enhancing the education of everybody when it comes to the the RV mobile, mobile home way of livin’. With that in mind, the 001 Series will be continuing with the kind of information you would only be getting’ at them rallys and such where y’all has to pay money fer what yer gonna be getting’ free from here. And in conjecture with that, I.M. are also gonna be continuationing with them FAQ’s that can give y’all the answers to the more exclusive questions that can pop into yer minds on occasion, assumin’ y’all got the kind of mind things can pop into, that are.

Because of our financial situation we need to work while on the road, what kind of jobs can you suggest?

The best one that comes to mind are as flagger on road projects. That are definitely a on the road job. You mostly get to stand around and do nothin’ most of the day, which are most like what y’all were a doin’ before, what with wanting to find a job workin’ on the road once you take up the mobile, mobile life. You might also want to check out bein’ a parkin’ meter ticket writer, but then they usually stands on the side walk when they write the ticket, so it ain’t a real on the road job.

Y’all keep sendin’ ‘em in and I.M. will keep answerin’ ‘em. Course ain’t nobodies sendin’ any questions in, but that are okay as I.M has gots more answers than y’all gots questions anyways.
