Beautiful weather in the Eastern Washington-North Idaho region. Perfect for spending a couple of days at the RV Life on Wheels Conferencein Lewiston, Idaho. This conference runs July 6-11, 2008.
RV LoW was organized more than a dozen years ago by Gaylord Maxwell, an RV travel writer, author and lecturer. This is a fantastic place for longtime and “prospective RVers to learn the most up-to-date information directly from experts about RVs and the RV lifestyle so they can enjoy more fully this important means of recreation and travel.”
“These conferences feature… over 100 different classes of interest to RVers on the RV lifestyle – beginning and advanced classes teach the ‘how to,’ ‘what to,’ and ‘where to.’ Learn about RVs and RV tow rigs – their capabilities, repairs, and maintenance. RV lifestyle enhancement courses include topics that make the lifestyle interesting and rewarding.”
Among the dozens of expert instructors are: Terri and Mike Church, authors and publishers of seven popular RVing guidebooks, talking about RV destinations; Al Coho, RVIA Master Technician, certified in both the USA & Canada, sharing his technical expertise; solo RVer Arlene Janssens talking about traveling alone, and fulltimers Nick and Terry Russell, publishers of the Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper, sharing insights into frugal RVing.
Although there is much to learn about the technical aspects of RVing when attending a RV LoW gathering, I have to fess up, I mainly go because of the interesting and fascinating people I meet. What a fantastic group of independent folks.
