RV Tech Talk: Keeping That RV Refrigerator Really Chilly

With summer temperatures soaring, RV refrigerators are called upon to keep up with the chilling assignment. It's a tough job, but you can help. Find tips here on how to help your fridge keep its cool.

Down in the Boondocks: Boondocking on Timber Company Lands  

With plenty of government land turning to "cash to camp," it's no surprise that RVers want to find new places to camp. The largest private US landholders may be the place to turn to. Many of America's timber companies welcome recreationists -- many for free. Weyerhaeuser: This company owns land in both the South, Midwest, and Northwest. While lands in the south are typically "leased" for recreation, in the northwest much land is open to the public.  Plum Creek Timber: A BIG concern as we mentioned. Their website provides a rather generalized discussion of recreation in its various state landholdings here. opefully, more information specific to your needs can be tracked down.

This Week's Feature: Camp Hosting -- is it for You?

Across the country, state parks are struggling with financial burdens. They turn to volunteers to help them do their jobs, and many RVers find campground hosting fits the bill. But is a hosting assignment for you? We turn to experienced campground hosts for their advice, and point you to where you can volunteer.
