There is also the possibility that I will instead get a larger Class C motorhome and put a rack on the back to carry a motor scooter or electric bike. That would give me the ability to run around to do errands or go visit nearby attractions without having to break camp, and without the cost of insuring a tow vehicle.
This year, I’m just not in the Halloween spirit, spooky or otherwise. All I can think about is that it’s only been 16 days since I woke up and heard Idgie making noises that told me she was in severe pain, and I knew as I left with her for the emergency vet at 5:30 am that she wouldn’t be coming home with me.
Few will argue that a blazing campfire at the end of the day really makes it cozy and fun. But one place no one wants to deal with fire is INSIDE your rig. Regardless what size or type RV you live in, and for however long/often, fire is one element you want to stay far away from…at least the open, uncontrolled kind.
Now that we’ve covered potential disaster scenarios and the documents and first aid kits you should have with you, this last entry in this Disaster Preparedness in an RV series will cover how to put together a Go Bag or Bug-Out Bag.
This week’s entry deals with appropriate responses and the kind of supplies an RVer should carry to be ready for potential disasters on the road. Since this is a blog about fulltime RV life, that’s the approach I’m writing from. But part-timers could take a page from this playbook, too.
No one wants to think about disasters when they get on the road, especially if their trip is a long-awaited, much-anticipated vacation.

So you need to be prepared for any eventuality.
