Places and Playtypie YouTube Instagram Pinterest Twitter facebook So, here we are enjoying the full-time RV lifestyle in a 29' Winnebago Outlook motor home. How did we come to live in a camper? Two sensible people who loved their life in New York City. Now we travel from campground to RV park to boondocking at stadium tailgating parties or in the desert with joyful abandon. We call our [mobile] home "Maybe". We are slowly visiting places around the United States. On our continental USA-RV travels, complete with our dog, we follow the coast of this country, visit unique places, eat good food, and stay as green as possible with our four panel solar power array and tell you about it in this travel blog.

Ferguson Reflected: South Grand, St. Louis
Ferguson and Saint Louis have been the focus of a great deal of negative attention lately. There is much more to St. Louis and the people’s attitudes than what is seen on TV. On South Grand the stores, restaurants and shops were boarded up last summer and have remained so since. The area has become a gathering place for artists of all sorts. Their messages are all about love and unity.

Where we have been

Five Years on the Road
The second of November we began our sixth year on the road. Yes, we are older, yes we are still silly and yes, we never want to stop driving slowly about the country. Our memories include smoking 30 pounds of pork, dancing with huge cardboard sculptures, being trained by our two strong minded collies - Sully and Harry Fly and eating lots of fresh seafood. Horses, there were lots of horses. read more

Making our RV a Home

Building Our Ark Part 6: Making our RV a Home
We have made a lot of changes to our trusty Winnebago, both large and small. They have all made life on the road in our aluminum box prettier and more efficient. Last week, we realized we had to change our tailgating plans. The "Polar Vortex" was coming and there are no open campgrounds in the Detroit or Chicago areas. Six weeks, freezing, without a full hook-up is not something we cared to do. So we have left Cincinnati and begun heading south. read more
