Your community on the road

The “Escapees” RV group was created by this working age couple in the 80s who wanted to have an organization of like minded RVers. It was not for retirees. Of course, that original group is dying off.

With the whole paradigm of RVing being branded as for old people, the grandkids of the Escapees founders created Xscapers (X = Gen X influence) that focuses on more active working age younger RVers.

Check out the Xscaper website:

We’ve been using this for 6 years now and it works brilliantly. And SO cheap compared to UPS Store or other mail services. We love that they scan our mail (scan the Envelope) and send us the scans. Then, if we want the inside scanned, we pay a small additional fee. Works great for checks and urgent mail you don’t want to wait for it to be sent to you.

Most campgrounds will accept your FedEx and UPS shipments (like from Amazon). UPS Stores normally charge you approx $5 to accept your packages. Amazon also has free “Lockers” set up around the country for getting their shipments.


Embracing Nomadic Serendipity

Many of us consider ourselves Digital Nomads, because we work our Internet based companies and jobs and go anywhere we want, hopefully between 75-80 degrees, and the biggest must is a good cell connection for Internet, because there is no cheap cable internet service on the road. We have unlimited Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T accounts, so streaming at night with Hulu, Netflix and YouTube TV is no problemo.

The acknowledged nerd gurus of RV Internet are Chris & Cherie of Technomadia –

Thousand Trails

We belong to MANY RV Camping Memberships. Thousand Trails is the one that we’ve used to the maximum our first 6 years. We have a full membership we bought used for $3300 six years ago with a $550 annual dues. It gives us 3 weeks in per campground and ability to go park to park.

To start out, we recommend the Thousand Trails ZONE PASS, which is $555 per year (same as our dues) but it only gives you 14 days in and you have to spend 7 out. What a freaking bargain when campgrounds are an average of $35 per night! This Zone pass pays for itself in 16 days!

If you get one, you can give our TT Member # as your referral and we get a $50 Visa Gift card.
