MOVIES

Our Home Movie Screening Room 

Our videos are a bit different from those you may have seen elsewhere.  They don’t offer much advice, but they do give you something to think about. They are produced for our own personal use and for family & friends to keep up with our travels. Much like RVing, creating these ‘home movies’ is a relaxing avocation in retirement. There are also hundreds of third party RV-related videos here as well. We hope you enjoy them all.

How many reasons do YOU have to go RVing?

Our home movies are just snippets of pleasant experiences we’ve had over the many years we’ve been RVing. If you want RVing advice, there is no shortage of it online.This link might a good place to start your search. Got a specific RVing question? Try other searches and search engines and — of course — YouTube®. You’ll find so much information that you may not have time to go RVing! 

Seen any interesting RV or

travel-related videos? 

Made any videos of your 

own while traveling?

When I was a young lad of 11, my family embarked on a cross country camping trip. Our ‘RV’ was nothing fancy ... just a wooden box contraption my dad had built and strapped onto the top of our Dodge station wagon. Mom & dad and their four boys were in for an adventure of a lifetime! My $12 Kodak Brownie® was at my side to capture it all!

 

Back then, fancy campers with a bathroom and kitchen and all the amenities of home had not been invented. But that was not a problem for us. Roadside hamburgers were just 15 cents … and a soft drink was only a dime! I can remember many 'spirited' discussions I had with dad about adding that extra dime to the lunch tab.

 

To pay for our family vacations, dad had a number of interesting jobs in his career, including a  stint as a commercial photographer.  He also took lots of 8mm home movies in those days which, sadly, do not compare to the quality of today's digital video. Some of the movies in our screening room feature some of dad's old  footage and photos combined with recent video we have shot. It's an interesting trip down memory lane.

 

A lot has changed since then but one thing hasn't. More than 50 years later, the scenery in the great American outdoors is still just as beautiful. While I did not fully appreciate that beauty the first time around, those childhood trips etched into my heart and mind a yearning for traveling that has never faded.  And instead of my Kodak Brownie®, I now capture all that beautiful scenery on a variety of cameras, none of which — unfortunately — cost $12!

Reflections on RVing for over 50 years ...

Happy travels!

Hope to see YOU on the road soon.  — ron
