Short visit with RV author Alice Zyetz


Stopped by Jojoba Hills SKP Co-op in Aguanga, Calif., to say hello to RV author Alice Zyetz and get a quick tour of this Escapee RV Club’s resort-quality complex.

While Jojoba Hills is quite a spread, it was Alice we stopped to see.

Alice and I go back to 2006, when I first interviewed her for a weekly RV lifestyle column I was writing for The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Wash.

She and her former husband, Chuck Zyetz, lived on the road for a decade. In late 2003 they left full-time RVing life and settled in Jojoba Hills, a cooperative Escapee RV Club park nestled in the high desert northeast of San Diego.

She and co-author Jaimie Hall-Bruzenak of have written several RV how-to books, including “The Woman’s Guide to Solo RVing.

According to Alice, they are working on a new book that will be out within a couple of months. “We’re nearly finished editing it,” she says.

  • Yes, Jaimie … we’ve been there … got dates mixed up about RV show and arrive too early. I know you will have a great time. It was starting to ‘fill up’ just a little when we were leaving.
    Look forward to our paths crossing soon. Headed for Pacific Northwest this year?

  • Hey, Julianne, does that mean you are headed to Quartzsite? We’ll be here for about a week and 1/2. Arriving tomorrow. Give me a shout if you head this way. I’d love to see you too.

    Oops- looks like you have been here and gone from your list of blog posts.
