Fill Your Bucket

Snowbirds & RV Travelers - - Editor's Note -

Do you have a “bucket list”? Al­though the term may seem to be overused, Ox­ford Dic­tionar­ies of­fer this sim­ple def­i­ni­tion: “a num­ber of ex­pe­ri­ences or achieve­ments that a per­son hopes to have or ac­com­plish dur­ing their life­time”, which seems like a premise we should all as­pire to have. I just re­turned from just such an ad­ven­ture with six great friends and the ex­pe­ri­ence made me re­al­ize the im­por­tance of mak­ing sure to you fill your bucket. What do you want to do? What do you want to see? Just do it. Fig­ure out how to make it hap­pen now. As you check items off your list, not only will you have a great story to tell, you will also gain me­mories that will last a life­time.

In this is­sue we hope you find some new ad­ven­tures that will help you ac­com­plish an item on your list. Have you al­ways wanted to visit the red­woods in Cal­i­for­nia? Or to do a tour in wine coun­try? Read how to do them both in this is­sue.

We bring you many great places to take your RV along for the ride this Oc­to­ber. Gord Baron tells a great story on the beauty of the wa­ter­front in Co­mox, BC and Edi­tor-in-Chief,

Perry Mack and his wife, Cindy, tell us all about the easy liv­ing in Palm Springs.

We also bring you news on how to keep your RV in top shape while you are trav­el­ing to th­ese great lo­cales. Prep­ping Your Tires for the trip South, Pro­tect­ing Your In­vest­ment,

Save Money on Your Phone Bill and 5 Steps to Bet­ter Gas Mileage will all help you take some ev­ery­day wor­ries out of your travel ex­pe­ri­ence.

Some other ex­cit­ing des­ti­na­tions we’ve in­cluded for you are about top spots in Florida, Ari­zona, Cal­i­for­nia and Ore­gon. We think you while find your hid­den gem in at least one of th­ese states.

I think we all have a bucket list — whether it is in your head or writ­ten down on pa­per — there are dreams we all want to ac­com­plish or fill. I hope this is­sue ei­ther helps you tick an item off your list or else adds some­thing to the list you never knew you wanted to do. We’ll see you back here in Novem­ber. Tell us more about you by send­ing us a photo, writ­ing an email or vis­it­ing us on­line. See page 78 for more info.
