If you are thinking about buying an RV, traveling full-time in an RV, or even camping during vacation in an RV, you need to read this book.
One caveat - at the beginning of the book, I wasn't sure I was going to like the author much. His habit of refering to his wife as "Miss Terry" annoyed me. I don't do well with sweet talk. Some of his early jokes weren't very funny. And, I almost decided he was a tight wad wanting something for nothing!
Well, that was before he let loose and I got to know the "real" Nick. He's overweight, (like me and so many of the rest of us), he goes down the road thinking about the next good place to eat, he doesn't hike much, he likes guns, tolerates cats, loves his wife and his country, and he was RVing when he couldn't afford it. He is uh, opinionated...well, outrageously outspoken, and just the kind of guy I'd like to sit around a campground and pick arguments with. I bet he gets red in the face when he's mad!
By the middle of the book, I was annoying my husband by reading aloud to him from this book. I was laughing - well, roaring, really, at some of Nick's astute observations ("she must have left her personality in her other clothes") and bad boy outbursts! I'm glad I'm not Terry. Love his book, but if I was her, I might have to kill the sucker. Naw, I have one much like him watching TV in the living room.
Seriously...buy this book. It's pretty cheap (he needs the money) and if you are interested in RV's or traveling, YOU NEED this book. We've been RVing for 17 months now, and I just found this great guy's work. Hope you are luckier - since you can make a list of places NOT to go as well as places to go after reading this book.
I wish the author went more into what was necessary to accomplish a whole year of RVing but all this book is is a listing of what they did. For example they would talk about going to an event and how they hooked up at a site but wouldn't discuss what one has to do to accomplish this. Even once would have been enlightening.
As a light travelogue this is an OK read but it doesn't really bring a lot to the table when it comes to being the complete package about full timing it.
