Home is where the RV is

Eric and Jackie Fulbright call Lexington, N.C., home. Sort of. Last month the couple touched down in Virginia Beach. Then they kicked off their shoes in Raleigh before settling back into the comfort of the open road. "Home" is wherever the spirit moves them. This year they'll likely settle in 15 different cities cross-country, visiting family, friends, and recreational and historic sites at whim. "The lifestyle's really good," Eric Fulbright said from inside his nearly 400-square-foot recreational vehicle. More

Celebrating 100 years on the open road

Planning on traveling this summer in an RV? Historically-speaking, you'll be in very good company. In 1931, Mae West's Paramount Studios contract included a chauffeur-driven "house car" for the star to relax in while filming movies. In the early 1940s, aviation pioneers Charles Lindbergh and his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, needed someplace quiet where they could write, so Henry Ford let them use a 1935 house trailer he owned that was equipped with electricity, a stove, an icebox, a bathroom and other "modern" amenities.

Gilbert Brown grew up in inner-city Detroit and went on to a successful football career — 10 years as a defensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers and one season as a Super Bowl champion.

Can you do Kickapoo? A little known, and "laid back," state park, Kickapoo Caverns in Brackettville, Texas, is celebrating its "7 days a week" grand opening on June 12. With over 6,000 acres of largely "natural" landscape, the central feature is Kickapoo Cavern, a-quarter-mile cave filled with fascinating formations. Another cave in the park, Stuart Bat Cave, is home to a half million bats. Every night when the bats fly, it takes nearly an hour and a half for the cave to empty. Holy flying traffic jam, Robin!

Many recreational vehicles contain a 3 way fridge to allow their owners to keep their perishables refrigerated. These 3 way fridges provide one of the luxuries of a stick built home to the RV owner. However, these fridges do not work quite the same as a standard kitchen fridge freezer. More

Edmonton Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

If your RVing plans include travel to anywhere in the U.S. southeast, Atlantic coastal states and provinces, or Gulf of Mexico states, you need to know a little bit about hurricanes. More

Baby boomers flush with cash and a persistent wanderlust are flocking to Lee County, Fla.s', RV parks in record numbers.
