Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 67 Cloudy Rain Humid High 74) 

We have spent the last week mostly getting rained on plus a haircut for Jo and a medical test for Bob, that pretty much summarizes it.

Everybody has heard of Murphy's Law (anything that can go wrong, will go wrong). These are a take on Murphy's Law as they apply to full-time living and traveling in an RV. So with further adieu here are Baskerville's Laws of Full-timing:

If you need to pull off the interstate for an emergency, like one of the lids on the plastic containers in the truck bed have come loose, the exit you choose will not have an easy return to the interstate.

No matter where and when you are hooking up or unhooking you will always be on the sunny side.

No matter how far back into the parking lot you park a 1 ton pickup with very long doors with empty spaces all around someone with will park right next to you.

The safe distance for braking will always be shortened by vehicles darting in front of you

Breeze direction is always from the side where you have the fewest windows 

If you go by the burp method for black tank dumping the first burp will be middle of the night

Propane always runs out in the middle of the night. 

If there is a strong wind it will most likely be a head wind and suck the fuel like you've never seen.

When there is a semi beside you so you can't get over the merging traffic will get into the lane ahead of you and then go 45 mph.

We'll end with Baskerville's Corollary to Murphy's Law - Murphy was an optimist!

Don't get us wrong we really like living full-time in our RV and traveling this great country, it just seems like multiple laws are out to get us. Traveling this great country we get to see sights like this.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. The one I really relate to is the propane running out in the middle of the night. Always, always, always. But if we hadn't done this, so many things we wouldn't have seen and experiences we wouldn't have had. So keep on truckin'.

  2. Hahaha...I think all of these have happened to us at one time or others except losing our lid. I love the way you end the post. Gorgeous photos.

  3. So true so true. But small bumps for the blessing of traveling this great country.
