There are no advertisements. We do link, for free, to products and services that we haved used and recommend.
This is a membership web site and it is updated weekly.
Note that links to other pages, like Next above, are shown with a teal background. When you hover over a link, it turns gold. Click to access that page. Links that you have accessed are shown in gray. When small photos are shown, click on the photo to see a larger image.
Each page has an Email Us link so that you can send us your questions and comments. Each topic is like a bikini, "long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to be interesting". If you need more information, Email Us and we will respond.
We recommend that you read the articles in order by clicking on the Next button on the top navigation bar. Skip the pages of no interest. To save you time, we have put highlights in bold. Read the bold highlights and then decide whether to skip or read the rest of a paragraph.
To us, it was so frustrating to read books or web sites that are outdated. This site is will not disappoint you. All articles have a reference number and the dates written and revised so that you know the accuracy and timeliness of the information. Any data within a page that might be time dependent is annotated with a date, e.g. (10-2008). For example, we have been full timing for nine years (04-2015), means that as of April of 2015, it has been nine years, not that we started in April, 2015. These dates will help you to assess if the information is pertinent to your travels today. Prices shown are full retail prices as of the date shown in parentheses.
For best viewing use display settings of 1078 x 768 pixels or larger. Most browsers use the F11 function key to eliminate menu bars and give you a larger screen. We like the Chrome browser the best.
The Lord has blessed us with full time travel. It is our goal to help you to enjoy what we have, without making expensive mistakes. We hope that we can serve you with this web site.
