Rx for RVing with a Chronic Illness

If you are healthy, living pain free and disease free, you are one lucky person.  I just read a statistic that almost 50% of adults in the US have at least one chronic illness and it gets worse for older adults.  Over 70% of us over age 50 have at least one chronic illness.  A chronic illness is one for which there's usually no cure and requires constant treatment.  These illnesses are things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pulmonary conditions, diabetes, autoimmune illness, chronic pain, heart disease, depression, etc.  The good news is that, due to new treatments and therapies, these illnesses aren't killing us like they used to.  The bad news, more of us are getting afflicted with them.

The RV Lifestyle - Spending the Winter in Florida

When the leaves start falling and the furnace starts running, I start counting the days until I'll leave for Florida.  One of the reasons I bought my current RV was so I could use it to escape New England winters.  I love summers in New England and I love traveling across the country in the spring and fall.  But, I really look forward to going to Florida for the winter.  I don't do winter activities and I'd much rather be sitting on the beach in January instead of the being stuck inside and complaining about the cold for three months.

A Couple Good RVing Books

This is just a short post to give a referral for a couple of very good RVing books.  I read these recently and have been meaning to pass along a referral.  I'm not the type to advertise or plug products, but these are a couple of really good reads that I bought and have read.  Given the season, they might be good book gifts for that RVer (or wannabe RVer) in your family.
