We’ve been on the road as full-time RVers since the spring of 2009, and we’ve been blogging about our experiences since then. We’ve covered a lot of ground, returned to some favorite places and found new favorites in that time, but one thing has remained constant: the challenges and joys of living this unique lifestyle.
Other RVers are amused to hear we never RVed before selling our house and everything in it except the dishes, clothes, tools and the few books we could stow in our new home on wheels. We have learned a lot over the years — and are still learning!
Posts are made irregularly — we left the regimented, deadline-oriented world when we hit the road, so don’t expect a publishing schedule here.
Posts are also — usually — at least a month after the events occurred, so if you’re looking for a daily or weekly accounting of what we’re doing right this minute, you won’t find it here. Why is that? Well… lots of reasons. Ellen writes most (all?!?) of the posts and her fiction writing background means she likes experiencing something, reflecting on it, and writing something she hopes goes beyond the boring sort of stuff writes in her daily journal. You get the best of our experiences because of this, even if you aren’t reading along in “real time.”
Early on we introduced “Bob and Ellen’s Best Eats,” updating it every year. Bob’s an awesome cook but it’s hard to resist trying different restaurants along the way, and sometimes cooking in the RV just isn’t feasible. We’ve set the bar pretty high, so when a dish makes our “Best” list, it’s met some rigorous standards. We like quality ingredients (organic and locally grown, when possible), a non-smoking atmosphere, good service, and a pleasing ambiance, even if it’s rustic. If your place of business has been noted as a “Bob and Ellen Best” and you’d like to include this cool emblem on your Web site, blog, or Facebook page, just e-mail Ellen at ellenbehr(at)aol(dot)com and we’ll send you a jpg or png to use.
The beauty of a blog is that we can have a conversation. We welcome your comments, especially if you have suggestions or experiences to share — RVer or not :)
