Product Review: Wash Wax All

Product Review: Wash Wax All
During our travels and after we are parked, we are often asked how we keep Liberty so shiny and looking beautiful. Passerbys literally want to reach out and touch (we let them!) because her finish looks and feels smooth as glass. One of the major factors in making the decision to purchase the Heartland Landmark 365 was the gorgeous full body paint ...

Chiropractic Care on the Road

Chiropractic Care on the Road
HELP!! I've fallen and I can't get up! This is my life, even pre-RV. Several years of shipboard life and bouncing around in rescue boats during my tenure in the Coast Guard and doing dumb things in my younger years now punish me years later. Osteoarthritis and Sciatic come to nag me when I least expect it. This was THE one thing that concerned us m...

The War Birds At Lackland Air Force Base

The War Birds At Lackland Air Force Base
When we were parked at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas this past February, we caught up with our RV besties, Tim and Emily from OwnLessDoMore for a couple weeks. While there, Emily and I took a power walk over to the War Birds Park so she could show me some 'awesome airplanes'. She appreciated how much we enjoyed military history...

Always On Liberty's Top 12 Cafés and Culinary Corners

Always On Liberty's Top 12 Cafés and Culinary Corners
I'm just going to put this here. RV travelers know where to find the best eats, and we're learning how to play the game. We've become 'them'...FOODIES! Our method to satisfying hunger madness is asking the locals or using the YELP app on our phones. We can be finicky, but we also love trying the local hidden corner booths. We look for creativity, l...

8 Ways To Forge Friendships While RVing

How will we meet people and forge friendships?Being we are both fairly outgoing, we kind of le...

Margarita Day the RV Way

Liberty's Top Hikes Of 2015-16
"It's no wonder we wander..."When we began our RV travel adventures in late 2014, we tried to come up with something to do together, enjoy the outdoors, learn something that would also be physically exerting to keep us healthy.

Liberty's Nomad Cats
"Time spent with cats is never wasted" - Sigmund FreudTypically, when you think of full-time RV'ers, you visualize an older couple with a pint-sized dog or two (or three) or perhaps, a younger couple or family with a larger dog. Dogs have always been popular companions amongst RVers and Campers. At any hour of the day, you'd see all different breed...
