Boondocking ebook

This ebook is the result of my more than 45 years of RVing, ten of which I spent in the RV sales and rental business, sixteen as a fulltimer, fourteen as a freelance writer and photographer for RV magazines, and ten as a seminar leader and class instructor for RV events.

And remember, as a freewheeling RVer, you always have choices of how, where, and when to spend your dollars. You will learn more about where you can save these dollars in the 111 Ways that make up the meat of this book. Read more.

Fasten your seatbelts. Prepare for a journey back through time, one much like H. G. Wells's classic 1895 novel, The Time Machine. We will rewind the clock to a post-revolutionary New England village and experience first hand how America's original citizens lived and worked. So climb into your own time machine--your RV--push a button or two and steer it for Old Sturbridge Village in south central Massachusetts. Read more.
