Yesterday, I turned over the keys to my motorhome's new owner. Lucy had been for sale on Craigslist for months, and a disabled vet who wanted and needed a class A for full-timing is now making her his own. Osteoarthritis in both knees made driving difficult and painful. Coupled with new meds that made me drowsy made even this die-hard RVer realize the danger in being on the road.
After 40 years of RVing, I have traded my three motorhome keys for three apartment keys in San Francisco near the Polk Gulch section of my favorite city in the US. I've been in small towns and big cities all over America, and every time I cross the Bay Bridge or Golden Gate, I see the Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower or Twin Peaks, I think "I'm HOME."
One thing I discovered is how much storage space the RV had. Whew! I have plastic storage bins, boxes and bags of stuff we pulled out of the motorhome and it's amazing how it fills the apartment.
I wrote a book on frugal RVing and since there are several on seeing San Francisco on a budget, there is no need for me to reinvent the wheel. However, if anyone is planning a visit to The City, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know how to see this beautiful place with your RV parked in a safe area for the day.
I've received supportive emails from many of my RVing women friends and their suggestions seem sound: become an advisor to new as well as existing women RVers. Men are of course included and welcome. Do you have any burning questions about RVing for which you would like to find answers? I'll post them here and everyone can learn or advise. I'm not the source of all wisdom by any means, but I'm willing to share what I know. What do you think?
