Be A Workamper

After a quick update on Kathy’s condition, we go straight into our favorite Black Hills places in South Dakota. Here is a good website to find them

We discuss the wonderful Mammoth Dig near Hot Springs, SD. We spent hours here walking down into the dig among the bones.


The Custer State Park is among our favorite places in the Black Hills with Buffalo herds, gorgeous scenic drives, wildlife, and historic lodges.



We talk about lots more and here are a few pictures.

Be A Workamper

We start out by discussing our express overnight trip from Alabama 550 miles back to Sarasota, FL to get Kathy to a Rehab facility.

Next we discuss Trailer Tire safety to include tire age, tire wear, tire pressure, and other facets of keeping your trailer tires from blowing and ruining your vacation. This subject was prompted by a Facebook post from someone who had all 4 tires blow on a 2014 rig.

Next we start a new feature all about some of our favorite RV places we have traveled to. This week we talk about the Pacific Northwest and South Dakota.

LTRVD0308 Do the Right Thing

We open with the good news that Kathy’s condition has improved to the point that we will be transporting her in our RV from the Thomas Hospital here in Fairhope, AL to the Heartland Health Care & Rehabilitation Center in Sarasota, FL which is home to us. We will depart Sunday evening for a Monday morning arrival.

The rest of this week’s show is devoted to “Doing the Right Thing”, or some common sense guidelines for getting along out here in campgrounds and on the road.

We cover the need for required RV maintenance, surge protectors, supplemental braking systems for towed vehicles, driving courtesy. and a lot of material on getting along in campgrounds, as well as some issues with pets. We don’t mean to step on any toes with all this, it’s just our humble opinion.
