Wanna know a secret?  This weekend, I’ll be at the Mid-Atlantic Motorsports and RV Show in Fredericksburg, Virginia, signing copies of my  new, limited edition book, 101 Secrets of Savvy RVers: Tips, Tricks, and Hard-Earned Advice.

Since 2010, my husband, Herman, and I have logged more than 20,000 miles in a 40-foot diesel pusher motorhome, towing a car and two bicycles. Laugh and learn from our mishaps and mistakes and from the things that we have managed to do right.

The book is filled with information we wish we had known when we started out. For example,

  • Find out the secret to spending the night in your RV at more than 5,000 well-lit, safe, and free locations.
  • Learn how to use  a zippered plastic bag to help you monitor fuel economy.
  • Read why you should be alarmed when you find cinder blocks on your campsite and what to do about it.
  • Get the lowdown on why a GPS is not always an RVer’s best friend
  • And you’ll never guess what you should put in your blackwater holding tank. Don’t worry, it’ll melt.

Come on by the Fredericksburg Expo Center. I’ll be there during all the opening hours, signing books and sharing secrets. Herman will be with me and we’re bringing along our 2007 Fleetwood Discovery 40X motorhome. We have loved every minute of our travels . . . but after going from Niagara Falls to Key West and from Virginia to Tombstone, Arizona, (twice!) it is time for us to sell.  Please share with anyone who is thinking about taking some journeys of their own.  The Discovery will be completely set up for viewing in the parking lot.

RV Show Dates and Times:

  • Friday, February 28: 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm
  • Saturday, March 1: 10:00 am – 7:00 pm
  • Sunday, March 2: 11:00am – 4:00 pm

      Thank you, Margaret. The signing went pretty well. I got to talk to a lot of interesting people and sold quite a few. Yay. You are right about the “busy.” What happened? *bewildered look*
