Thinking of moving into an RV? If so, there are nine basic things you need to know before you make the leap from standard living to motor home or camper living. Make new RV curtains. These carpet-like fuzzy blue curtains are just dowdy and give my emotional age a three decade boost – in the wrong direction. This is a great place to bring in some style and character. I want something long-wearing stylistically because with eight window treatments & a divider curtain, this will be a lot of work and a major expense. Choose wisely!

Delta mistakenly allowed me to fly direct from the US to the UK with my 14 lb. terrier mix in the cabin last year. Upon arrival in the UK there was quite a bit of bother, but they, eventually, let me and my dog into the country, as it was Delta’s fault for selling me the ticket (I had all relevant paperwork for my dog). However, I had to change my return flight to the US from a direct one, to one that first flew to continental Europe (in my case, Paris). I was told by UK customs that it IS permitted to enter or leave the UK with an in-cabin pet via Europe, but not direct from the US (go figure?).

If you’re about to go and brave the ski slopes, picking the right insurance is just as important as hiring the right kind of equipment. However, some people may be unaware of the risks. Because although skiing, snowboarding and ice skating are exhilarating sports, they can also be very dangerous. So consider taking out Winter Sports Cover to protect you.

Meal plan. Yes, I hate doing it too, but I never go to the store without a list and I try to buy only a few things that I can use to make several meals. Some ideas: chicken, lettuce, onion, bell pepper, black beans, tortillas. Use this to make both fajitas, but then also use the rest of the chicken to make chicken salad. Mix in some onion, put it in a tortilla as a wrap with lettuce and some bell pepper strips. I’ve also put the same fajita fixings on top of a baked potato or just over rice. Think ahead. The more you do it, the easier it gets. Also, don’t forget the coupons!

Mary615 – We absolutely loved the years we lived in our RV full time and found that it was easy to adjust to a traveling lifestyle. We spent a lot of time outdoors doing other things, so really didn’t have time to miss our yard. Obviously, this isn’t the right choice for everyone, but many compromise by RVing half time and living in a house half time. Thanks for your comments and votes!Travel

Absolutely wonderful hub! Excellent advice. I have to add one thing: check the expiration dates on your bank cards before you go, because if a card expires while you are on the road, it will be a total pain to get a replacement. I learned this the hard way. Happy travels!
