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.
