Thanks for that great link, Donna D. The blurbs describing the bloggers and their enthusiasms are a time-saver. Lots of great info for us newbies.

I already follow Technomadia. Cherie and Chris are living the life I wish I could. But, it's fun to travel vicariously too! Glad you find the link useful.

That's a reflection in the picture.

All windows are thermal and the trailer is insulated throughout; even the undercarriage.

Never had a problem with condensation but that could be because it is always warm in Florida.

Thanks Donna! But RV Sue and her Canine Crew were left off this list. I've been following her blog for over a year. Talk about living the life!

RVSue and her Canine Crew is consistently great, especially for solo women.

I too follow RVSue and her crew. I'm surprised she wasn't on the list. With the number of hits on her site meter..it was obviously an over sight!

I follow Jon's blog from time to time. Nothing out there more applicable than traveling across North America with an Escape for this forum. ...and Jon, thanks so much for all of your posts. They are a tremendous wealth of information.

Thanks Donna,

A couple on there I had not seen before that look interesting. Unfortunately so many full time blogs seem to be for Class A's with class A budgets and folks that stick to highways and campgrounds. Not the kind of remote camping and boodocking that gets sets my dreams afire.

I agree with others here though. The ones I read religiously are Jon's and RvSue. Also simplelivingsimpletravel.com but he only posts once a month and switched his egg for a Nash. But he does get in some remote spots.

I also started following Jon's blog once it came across my path. In fact, it's how I discovered Escapes! I guess it's time to say, "Thank you, Jon Vermilye!" As a thespian, and stage manager (ret'd) every time I see one of your creative, clever, and useful modifications, I copy as much info as I can get for future reference, and nostalgically miss those days when all I had to do whenever I wanted something, anything, no matter how seemingly impossible, was to say to our tech. director, "Make it so!"

I too read RVSue. However, I'm not a boondocker and wonder how she gets by for a month or more with ZERO laundry costs. I know how folks on ocean going sailboats make their clothing last

During long road trips I've used a hand-washing contraption, rather like a large bucket and plunger, and hang things out to dry. I imagine this would work with sheets, but not blankets, covers, etc.

When touring on motorcycle, everything was sink washed - even jeans. I should mention I hate laundromats!

Her trips while at the laundromat are generally entertaining. She's mentioned the stack being quite high.

Wheeling It is one of my favorites. Lots of information from Nina and Paul and they do a lot of boondocking. Even though it is in a Class A, they are very down to earth and fun to read.
