  31. Utah Bonnie says:

    Sue, I am so grateful for your generous sharing of your journey. You’ve inspired a recently divorced artist to take up the gypsy life. I am in the process of getting my ducks in a row and cleaning out the stuff as well as looking into rigs, domiciles, etc. There is so much to do before launch but you’ve enabled me to visualize how that will look for me and my dog and kitty.

    Happy Thanksgiving

  32. Rob, still in WA state says:

    A very Happy Thansgiving to you and Bridget!
    Just to give you a update on our RV. We finally got our sprinter sportsmobile the middle of August. Went camping with aunt and uncle, learned the ropes. Then we found a full hook up campground at rainbow res. which is run by Tooele Army D. And the state of UT. Can drive right up to a handicap ramp. Hubby can go fishing. We went and stayed for a week and came home and went again. And again. Until they closed at the end of October. We have never had so much fun. Can’t wait for spring. It opens back up the first of May. We were the only ones there! Just loved it.
    So if anyone out there is worried about traveling with a wheelchair, don’t. We have enjoyed the freedom to be able to get out of the sticks and bricks. Hubby even caught a fish!
    Thank you so much for your blog and giving us the thought of “ya we can do this!”

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Dear Michelle,

      When I read you found a good camp and you and your husband went back, again and again, I laughed out loud with delight for you. Then you followed that with “We have never had so much fun” bringing forth tears through my laughter. I’m very happy for you both! Thank you for sharing your story here. Regards to your husband… 🙂

    • Velda in Roseville Ca says:

      I would love to hear more about your Sportsmobile. We almost bought one back in 05, but that was when it was difficult to get a Sprinter certified for CA pollution standards,so ended up with a Leisure Travel van that spring, which we still own and love? So happy you found a way to get out into the wilds.
      Velda

      • Michelle SLC,UT says:

        Our Sportsmobile is a regular 2500 van. So only 19’4″. It has a pop up top. We have a UVL lift that is housed outside the van. Inside we have a porta potty and shower. Sink stove and fridge. Goucha bed/couch. We only have a grey tank. We also have 2 solar panels. 2 AGM deep cell battery. And a second alternator, that will charge the batteries in minutes. And can be used to run the AC. We got it out of CA. We put hand rails all around the inside.
        6+ years of being home bound. We love the freedom. My husband is way more alert and with it since we got the van. He had a massive stroke and has no use of his left side.

        • Velda in Roseville Ca says:

          Thanks Michelle for your reply. Sounds like you got the perfect RV for you two. Our Sprinter LT is 22 ft long and is the 2500 series, and we love it. We have a wet bath with both grey and black tanks. Sofa bed at rear which makes a king sized bed. All the rest similar to your I suspect. Do you have a wheel chair ramp? So glad it has been so positive for your husband. What a blessing for you both ESP after being housebound for so long. Take care and have fun. We love our Sprinter LT.

    • Jan in Montana says:

      That sounds like the perfect Thankgiving story. So glad that you took what must have been a huge leap in faith and had such a success. Happy camping.

  46. That is a stunning turkey! Good job getting him in full display.

    Covered in snowflakes as sparkling as their eyes the pups prance in hoping for treats-this time fruit is what we share.A diced peach and strawberries for them,mine dribbled with chocolate syrup- “Dining like royalty” the glad game is easy to play here.Good morning,Sue,using your adaptation(with no material things such as toys) is fun.Gifts tangible in different ways are sweet to consider,thanks for adding the twist!

    P.S I am thankful that my best buddy,my dog Juice, is thriving.You,and some readers, might remember Juice.She is the dog that had the cancerous tumor and had the front part of her jaw and teeth removed.She is healthy and playful and even getting a bit chubby.Thanks to Cornell University Veterinary School.

    Juice will be headed to Arizona with us after Christmas at home.

  67. AZ Jim says:

    Well, Burp!, It’s over for another year. We had a real feast, just the two of us but I couldn’t ask for a better dinner companion than Detta. I did a little of the preparations and quite a bit of the cleanup. Reminded me of my days as a military trainee in the mess hall back almost 60 years ago scrubbing pots and pans, etc. I assure you this meal was much better than any I had there. I sure hope all of you had a great day too.

  68. Angie from SLC says:

    Hope you and Bridget had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Your blog puts a smile on my face and I can’t wait to one day be more of a spur of the moment RV’er. We travel in ours throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall but I am still working full time and have a few more years left. Luckily I get 6 weeks of vacation a year and that sure helps to be able to still work. Hubby retired a year ago this month. He has become quite the house husband!

    Keep safe in your travels and enjoy every day!!!!!

  69. Jim B In Dallas says:

    Hope you & Miss Bridge had a wonderful Thanksgiving! God Bless!

  70. Late to the party, but just a note to say we feel blessed to have found your site as we educate ourselves about the full-time lifestyle. How bad have we got it? I spent Thanksgiving day building our roof-top solar combiner box. A few months ago, I could not even pronounce “combiner box”. Happy Thanksgiving!

  71. Yay! I am thankful for this minute of WiFi to hope you and Bridget had a most wonderful Thanksgiving! Now to send it before I lose my signal! Love ya’ll!

  72. Dawn in MI says:

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Bridge too Sue. Enjoy your weekend, I hope it is quiet and peaceful. We’ve got houseguests with two small children, not used to children, so it’s not so quiet. But fun in a different way…right? And eventually everyone goes home. Much to be thankful for in many different ways.

    • Az Jim says:

      Dawn, Keep repeating this manta to yourself…”We can do this…We can do this…We can do this”….earplugs help too. Happy Turkey sandwich week!!

  73. Terri from Texas says:

    A very belated Happy Thanksgiving! Just ordered 2 paperwhites through your blog. Keep a lookout! Finally convinced my husband it would be worth it for him to get one as well. Still eating Turkey! Hope you and the Bridge have a wonderful blessed weekend!

  74. Jean in Southaven, ms says:

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you RVSue and Bridget and to all blogorinos.

  75. EV in Idaho says:

    Hello! Would it be possible for you to put a link to your Amazon site under your Menu heading at the top of your blog. For some reason, I can only get the link by going to the past shopping ideas you post at end of some of your posts. I want you to get credit for all of my purchases, but my old phone does not show your entire home page. Thanks so much! I so enjoy your blog and want to support your lifestyle with my meager purchases. I just ordered the Ken Burns “Roosevelt” dvd’s. I hope you get the credit. Take care and hug your little companion for me.

  76. cluelesscampers and canine (Eastern Missouri) says:

    Happy Thanksgiving Sue and Her Royal Highness, Bridget!! We are thankful every day for your blog. Your photos are amazing, especially liked the recent post with the close up photos of desert plants. Thank you also for sharing the ups and the downs; it is actually comforting to know that we are not the only ones “blessed” with breakdowns when we camp….I guess it just goes with the territory. We too ordered a Kindle paperwhite (and cover) through your blog this weekend; the blogorinos gift of choice this Christmas! I hope it show up on your sales soon.
