  1. I would second Geico! They saved us some money and also paid for a new awning that was damaged by a thunderstorm...and paid off very quickly!
  2. There are many different types of driving jobs in the oil fields...and they all pay very well right now. You didn't mention having a four year old son along with you in the original post. Yes, that definitely will limit your job choices...good luck with your test and job search.
  3. If you are going to go ahead and get your Class A you can make a lot more money with a lot less hassle in the oil industry. They are desperate for Class A drivers and you can work as much or little that you want to work. I have a Class B and am presently getting it upgraded to a class A to supplement my retirement also.
  4. We had great experiences this past summer going in and then coming back to the US...in fact coming back in to the US the computers had crashed and the crossing guards were very apologetic when they asked us to please wait for a few minutes while they rebooted their system...we then struck up a very pleasant conversation with the guard while we waited.
  5. My wife and I were just talking about this yesterday. We went in to Dallas Saturday and noticed that the two brand new RV parks that were finished and opened early this summer were already about 90% full!! We were surprised that they filled so quickly. It also looked like a lot of those RV'ers were not going to be moving anytime soon!!
  6. Yea, we got in to a bad real estate deal that I thought we could write off as a loss and they jumped all over it. I ended up owing around 10K along with penalties that took me a long time to pay off. That was in the early 80's and 10K was a lot of money for someone just starting a career and had two kids to feed!!! Taught me a lot of hard lessons though!!!
  7. Thanks Kirk and Twotoes, and yes, that is sound advice! I really didn't think it would be a viable option but figured I would ask, just in case it might be. I had my once in a lifetime (I hope) run in with the IRS and it wasn't fun!!! Definitely don't want to go there again!!
  8. If you work full time from your RV...say you do on-line teaching or any other work that requires you to work IN the rv or use part of it as your office, can you claim part or all of your RV payment (if you have one) as your office on your income tax or is it not worth the risk? Thanks!
  9. We bought one of the ladders like the Werner that was mentioned above but I think it was another brand. It folds up to a manageable length and is very sturdy. I weigh around 250 lbs and it supports me just fine. We got ours at Lowes for around 120 dollars.
  10. My wife is the reader in our family and she also has the Kindle Paperwhite and loves it. We also use Amazon but we have found the local library to be a great source for downloadable books. It did take her a while to get used to using it and learn how to download books but now she loves it!
  11. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… I almost put an "over and under" bet with my original post on how many posters it would be before someone said something about the topic not being in the right place!!! I did ponder for a little while when I posted originally about where to put it...it's not "satellite tv and radio", or "technical tips and tricks" or "rv'ing on a budget"...probably should have posted under "general rv information" but I didn't...more demerits for me!!!! Thanks again for all the useful information guys!!
