Have you ever wondered about those recreational vehicles going down the highway? Would you ever want to live in one? Why would anyone ever want to live that way? This book answers the many questions that Barbara receives whenever someone finds out that she is traveling alone in an RV and is almost 70 years old. It covers how Barbara began, what she considered when buying an RV, the difference in the aspects of her life style and some of her experiences. She spends about three months in a location (usually a national site) working in exchange for her campsite. If you have ever considered living in an RV then this book will answer many questions. If you have no intention of ever living this way, maybe you will enjoy hearing why Barbara feels that it is a wonderful way to live, although maybe not your choice of a life style.
