The OLD MAN in the KEYS - Evolving Chapters

Seagulls, Palm Trees and smooth GULF Waters

OK, Here are a set of links to my chapters about being AN OLD MAN IN THE KEYS.

These are writings about my observations while staying down here, and include photographs, people and how they act while on their vacations, little pieces of natural beauty I see, and of course, some of what I consider the better Tiki Bars and casual dining places.

So, come back here regularly, or just follow this blog post to be notified when I have written a new chapter.

Work Camping. Is it right for you?


Work Camping is a great way to travel for longer periods of time and make a little money while you do so.

There are thousands of campgrounds around the country that will give a camper (or camping couple) a part-time job and a low price for a campsite if they have the right skills and even better experience.

Campground owners always need people to perform low-impact labor around the campground to keep things operating well.

They will need clerks to check people in and make reservations. They will need people to repair plumbing, electrical problems and do house-keeping. And they will need people to maintain their landscaping.

So, if you are interested in Work Camping, and are good at these things and especially if you have done this before in another campground, click on the link below to read my article on HubPages where I explain Work Camping and the details about this special lifestyle.

RV Financials - Part-5 - Resale Expectations, be prepared.


This is the fifth and final article in my series; RV FINANCIALS

The final thing for me to explain to the novice RV owner is how shocking it is to find out just what your RV is really worth.

And, after getting over this shock, you need to make a careful analysis of just what you can do to increase your RV's resale value. 

You need to know just which things on your older RV have a decent payback and which ones are just too costly to do.

Read the other four parts of this series of articles and then read up on how to make your RV as desirable as possible to a potential buyer.

But, I recommend that you read the three previous articles also, so here they are below;

 RV Financials, Part-1 - RV Prices, where the world of RV pricing is explained for the novice.

RV Financials, Part-3 - Understanding the RV Trade-In Process where you will get an inside view of how RV dealers work you into accepting their offer for your old Rv when you want to trade.

So many people get into the world of RV ownership without a real understanding of the ery structured world of TRADING YOUR RV, the Ins and the Outs, of what you need to do to get the most for your RV.

Every RV dealer uses the same tools to place a value on your Rv when you want to trade it for a newer one.
