Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Why Our 2006 Winnebago View Does It For Me: Can you say “22 MPG, boys and girls?”

Everybody has their favorite RV. But my favorite is Winnebago’s View for four specific ones: incredibly high gas mileage; superior engineering –mechanical ; non-ugly interior furnishings; and great re-sale value ( because used Winnebago Views are hard to come by and everyone loves them), unlike most other used RVs. First of all, perhaps you don’t believe that phenomenal gas mileage. Well, you... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Life with a Brazil Nut

Things happens in the underbelly of RV parks that probably wouldn’t happen in “real” life. Take late last night, for example: My husband, Renato, and I were walking Lap 4 of the 5 around the park it takes to equal a mile. Our new neighbors, two couples traveling together, called out for us to join them at their table, resplendent with wine bottles and glasses. Now, while I may appear outgoing... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: My Favorite “Crockpot Italian Sausage Soup”

Is anyone throwing fresh tomatoes, zucchini, or carrots at you? Or are produce prices great at the local grocery right now? Make this soup from late summer’s bounty; people will think it took forever and that you are gooood. There’s several versions of this recipe, but this one is idiot-proof, quick to prepare and tastes superb, hence, my kind of cooking. Crockpot Italian Sausage Soup: Prep... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: How to Be One of Those Couples in Restaurants Who Have Something To Say to Each Other

You’ve seen them; couples in restaurants, glazed smiles applied carefully, trying to disguise the fact they have little in common and little to say to each other anymore. While I can’t make any claims to degrees in marital counseling, I have learned something about RV relationships in these few months my hubby and I have been full-time RVing. This is what I’ve learned, based on observations... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: 3 Reasons You Should Visit City Beach in Whitefish, Montana

There are lakes, then there are glacier cut lakes. Yes, I know about man-made lakes, but they’re just not the same as the ones God carved out over a long period of time. And Whitefish City Beach, on Whitefish Lake, Montana, has to be one of the best glacier cut lakes to visit. Your kids and grandkids will thank you big time! Here’s... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: How the Intellicast Weather App Might Save Your RV or You

An iPad or iPhone app that could save your life? I’d like to be exaggerating, but I think not. Our Whitefish RV Park neighbors www.whitefishrv told us what happened as they drove from South Dakota to Montana this past July: (Read more about South Dakota campgrounds and things to do in South Dakota.) They kept hearing vague comments on South Dakota radio stations about a small storm that “might... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Idiot Proof, Healthy, Easy, Summer Crock Pot Stew

It’s summer in northwest Montana. Harmony and Understanding converge at exactly this point come July and August. Read more about Montana campgrounds and things to do in Montana. Yesterday, we left for Glacier Park (a mere 35 minute drive) and came home to a healthy, hot meal that had cooked outdoors in the crock pot during our Park adventures. I had thrown the recipe together in literally ten minutes,... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Amphibious Aircraft Video, Canada and Montana’s Flathead Valley

The Canadian Flag So you’re headed up to Northwest Montana’s Flathead Valley with your tent or RV. Hooray! Let’s assume you’ll explore Glacier National Park. Seeing as how West Glacier is only 25 miles (about 35 minutes) from Whitefish in the north Flathead Valley, how could you not? Let’s assume you’ll ‘do’ Whitefish for a few days. You’ll find Whitefish, Montana at... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Montana’s Whitefish RV Park: “Keep it secret! ”

Watch video of Whitefish RV Park “Keep it secret!” I had just told our awesome neighbors at the Whitefish RV Park I was writing a blog for Woodall’s about Whitefish RV…they begged me not to. And I confess that selfishly…I’m torn. Whitefish RV Park is one of those jewels that once discovered, everyone fears the next guy will discover it, too…and the next... [Read more]

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Whitefish, Montana: Come Now!

Patti’s Saga of an RV Rookie: Whitefish, Montana: Come Now!

Whitefish, Montana.  Even Hollywood stars love it, “discovering” it in the early ‘90’s, with most eventually  moving on to wilder pastures. Tom Cruise came to our front door at the family’s Whitefish lake house,  looking for Emilio Estevez’ place near by. Ask me how thrilled we were and how very cool we acted, like we didn’t know who he was or anything. I was the Queen of Casual.  Oh…that... [Read more]
