What’s your RV Name?

You’re driving along and as you are passing or behind an RV, whether it be a motorhome, 5th wheel or travel trailer, you might notice it has a decal showing a funny name or catchy phrase with some funny looking social media icons under it.  You wonder, ‘hmmm, I thought only boats and ships are named’.

At sea, naming vessels was a way to communicate with each other.  This was done way before radio communication even existed.  It was a misnomer for a sailor (or pirate!!) to put his long glass up to his eye and read the name of a ship on her stern to determine whether it’s friend or foe.  Tradition has carried itself through centuries to modern day.  Seagoing vessels were typically named after important females; either historical or personal, hence why they are referred to as ‘she’.  

Well, seemingly, the tradition has gone hard aground and traipsed over to the RV community…

Today, it’s common to drive into a campground or RV park to see what some RV’s and Campers are named.  Some names are personified like ‘Rosie’ or ‘Georgie’ however, some have really catchy titles or phrases…like ours…Always On Liberty!  And yes, we have those funny looking social media icons under it too!

Originally, when we first started our RV endeavors, we were dry-docked at a local state park campground waiting for our home to sell.  We moved all of what belongings we wished to stow into our RV.  There were many a campfire when Captain Dan and I would chat over a bourbon on the rocks or a glass of vino.  One of the topics was, especially both of us coming from maritime backgrounds, ‘what were we to name OUR land yacht’?

It didn’t take long for ‘Liberty’ to come rolling off our tongues like mermaids singing.  It sounded cool and hip…liberating, actually.  It’s another word for freedom and that’s exactly what we were about to embark on.  So, instantly, our ‘then’ Heartland Cyclone Toyhauler took on the persona of Lady Liberty…but not in the same fashion as the tall green lady in New York Harbor.  Our ‘Liberty’ was personal.  She was now our new life blood.  In the Maritimes, ships were identified as M/V meaning ‘motor vessel’ or S/V meaning ‘sailing vessel’, so, we deamed our land yacht “RV Liberty”…RV meaning ‘road vessel’.  We were excited and eager to set up our Facebook page and blog and away we went.  We finally had our road name and now our identity.


We quickly learned ‘RV Liberty’ dot com website was taken by *gasp*…ANOTHER ‘supposed’ RVer, even though our RV Liberty Facebook page was already set up and we were stylin’ with the big boys and girls in them big boxy homes on wheels with their own cool names.  We were perplexed what to do next.  I mean, we were already known however, we were like a ship out of water without a paddle.  Back to more campfires.  More bourbon on ice.  More vino.  And then it hit us!  

‘Always On Liberty’ *mermaids singing*

…because we ARE always on liberty.  See, in the Coast Guard and the Navy, ‘Liberty’ is another word for ‘time off’ aside from taking leave.  Oftentimes, they were for several hours up to a four day weekend.  In our tenures, there always seemed to be a guy who was ‘always on liberty’ and never at work.  We loathed those guys; we so wanted to be them.  So there ya have it, now you know and knowing’s half the…oh, whatever!  It makes for a good belly-up-to-the-bar story at least.

So, let’s fast forward a few years.  We’ve noticed quite a few of our RV friends have their names on the backs of their rigs too!  What’s funny, is we will pass each other on the roads and know exactly who they are.  

In 2016, while we were at Fort Sam Houston Army Post FamCamp in San Antonio, I was trottin’ around the campground (sort of exercising) when I noticed a very familiar ‘blue honey wagon’ (portable crap tank…see picture!) attached to the ladder on the back of a certain 5th wheel.  I kept thinking to myself every time I passed it, ‘I know these people, I’ve seen their photos on social media.  I recognize that Bighorn with that infamous blue crap tank’.  And then it hit me; Emily and Tim Rohrer from OwnLessDoMore whom we’ve connected with vaguely on Facebook.  We instantly got to know each other and that connection grew stronger (something to do with understanding military family life?)  Since that day, we’ve met several times on the road (psssst, they keep following us!!! LOL).  They have somewhat added to their bold “identifier” showcasing their own road name that’s decal’d on their Bighorn’s upper transom.  Oh yes, and that blue shitter tank, is still there but it matches perfectly with their www.OwnLessDoMore.US decal. Oh!  They too have a blog.  Now that we’ve become ‘RV Besties’, I can get away with sharing this story.  Check their daily posts on their OwnLessDoMore.US Facebook page.  They are awesome RV peeps to hang with.  Oh, and she always has wine (or something stronger) for our “RV Sister Time” while we roll our eyes and watch Tim and Captain Dan talk RV tech gibberish over cables, wires, batteries, and…more power.  It’s like we have our own version of Tim the Toolman on Home Improvement.

This past January (2017), we meandered our way over to Quartzsite, Arizona from Yuma for an XScapers Convergence.  So, we pull into what seemingly was a good site on the vast craggy desert.  Low and behold, who did we park near?  Julie and Marc Bennett of RVLove!  I instantly recognized their motorhome.  Up until then, we had only conversed and networked with them also through social media. (Pssssst they’re sort of ‘famous’!)  Anyhow, their road name was beaming from the top of their motorhome windshield.  I won’t share how they decided on their RV road name; that’s their own story but it is quite humorous.  Since meeting at the Q, we’ve become good friends with this Aussie/American couple, helped with a video or two and met a couple times for dinner. Marc and Julie, though on the same time path as ourselves, have been instrumental to our future success as bloggers.  Today, they have their own online RV Success School for those yearning to hit the road as RVers.  Check out their RVLove YouTube Channel.

Just recently, while we were parked at a campground in Elkhart, Indiana, I step out of our truck to do something and I noticed the stern of a gleaming Airstream across the roadway from us.  They too, had a decal on the back of their silver bullet Our Someday Is Now.  Now, I’ve never met these people in my life; in person or online.  I get bold and log onto Facebook liking their page and then messaging them ‘pssssst, we see you…we’re right behind you!’  Quickly, I receive a response back, ‘OMG, it’s Always On Liberty!’  We arranged to meet later that day and instantly became friends.  We invited Nancy and Paul over to relax in our air conditioned Landmark.  Oh and their adorable Corgis, Macy and Jake, stole our hearts! You can keep up with their daily activities on their Facebook page Our Someday Is Now Facebook page.

Lastly, a week ago in Elkhart, Indiana, I was pacing-to-the-80’s (that whole ‘exercising sorta thing’) and stopped dead in my tracks at a particular campsite.  While catching my breath, I stumbled closer to their Nissan SUV because I recognized their road name decals…Drive Dive Devour!  It was just only two weeks prior that I spoke to them on the phone about their visit to Kentucky since we were so familiar with the area (they were organizing an Xscapers convergence).  Again, this fun couple we’ve only corresponded with through Facebook and following their blog. 

Finally, I grab my sweaty nerve up, making myself look a little more presentable, I stuff my stray hairs under my redneck ballcap, push my movie star sunglasses up on the bridge of my nose and courageously knock on their door.  A big bearded dude came to the door and I said, ‘hey Brandon, how’s it going’?  He had NO IDEA giving me the who-the-heck-are-you look until I said “Dude! Always On Liberty?  Lisa?  Dan?”  Becoming instant friends, we had a couple of our own private convergences while they were in town.  

BTW, don’t let Brandon’s size fool ya!  He’s a really nice guy and very knowledgeable about ‘everything RVing’!  And Kerensa is cuter than cute and knows her way around RVing as well!  They have a Facebook following on their page ‘RV to Freedom’ helping young and old learn about RVing and how to live in an RV.

Those are just a few that we’ve met on the road by recognizing their ‘road names’ from their blogs or social media.  It’s awesome putting faces with names and end up sharing our life stories and future plans.  We then become ‘RV Family’. It’s a fun way to identify and be identified on the road, in campsites or on social media.  So, when you get your own RV or camper, what are you going to name her?

Next time you’re rolling down the road or highway and you see our RVs with our road names, look all of us up!  Give us a shoutout on our Instagrams and Facebooks!  We all love hearing from our followers…and fans!  Oh, but please, don’t text and drive.  We can certainly wait to hear from you when you’re high and dry. 

If you are interested in getting your own decals made at great prices, check out these RVers, Mark and Linda Comer, who do this in their own RV!  We met them at the Heartland Owners Club North American Rally as they were vendors. We also had decals made for Captain America too. Tell them Always On Liberty sent ya!

Kentucky’s Tobacco Barn Craftsman

The Bluegrass State…Kentucky is known for several things; the fastest two minutes in sports (Kentucky Derby), Bourbon Distilleries, Corvettes, Colonel Sanders and his fried chicken and Stephen Foster’s “My Old Kentucky Home”.  However, Kentucky has also been notable for it’s huge cash crop…


As you drive through the state of Kentucky, whether on dirt country roads or state highways, you’ll notice black-stained old “Tobacco Barns” peppering the farm country landscape.  It’s no misnomer that the black is the chosen color as it absorbs heat from the sun to speed up the drying and curing process of the tobacco leaves.  Inside, ‘tobacco sticks’ (also called ‘laths’) are hung with tobacco attached for drying and curing.  Having lived in Kentucky prior to taking off on our RVing adventures, we got to see start to finish the tobacco farming culture.

Kentucky farmers have and still grow three types of tobacco; burley, dark fire-cured and dark air-cured. Burley tobacco, used primarily in cigarettes, comprises more than 90% of total production and is grown in all but 1 of the 120 counties in the state.  There are only an estimated 4500 tobacco growers left in Kentucky and has been declining due to growing health concerns as well as the increasing number of outsourced overseas growers; both of which have devastated the state’s tobacco industry.  

Tobacco is harvested in late summer in Kentucky.  The plants are cut using a tobacco knife. Once cut, the plants are hung on ‘tobacco sticks’ (or laths) which are hauled on open wooden wagons towed by farm trucks to the black tobacco barns to cure.  Later, the leaves are removed from the stalk and sold at market.  

How tobacco sticks (laths) are made…

Decades and to even a century ago, after each harvest, while the tobacco dried and cured, large trees were harvested and logs were cut into five-foot lengths.  Each log was split into thinner pieces with a froe; a wedge tool driven into a block of wood with a mallet and split into thinner sections until the lath was made.  Typically, farmers could make upwards to 500 laths per day.  Several thousand were needed for each farm however, most times, they made more than they needed to sell on the side to other less-ambitious farmers.  Back then, the sticks sold for about three cents each.  Today, they are worth much more…”if” you can find them.

Now, as years pass and tobacco farms folding, the tobacco barns are left to remind us of days gone by, torn down or burned. 

Fast forward a generation or five…

Recently, we decided to take a field trip to  Oldham County to learn a little Kentucky history and watch an amazing Craftsman create art that has that history attached to it. 

We met up with Tobacco Barn Craftsman  Matt Hartlage and his wife, Sara to learn about their amazing art pieces.  When we arrived at their workshop, we were met with smiles, sweaty hugs and calloused handshakes.  It was a typical scorching, late May day in Kentucky, but the heat didn’t pull this forty-something year old couple away from reclaiming tobacco’s past.  As Matt was working on one of his pieces, Sara was busy building display racks for upcoming fairs and festival showings while their little boy played in the yard.  

Chatting with them, we learned that Matt, is a truck driver by day and Craftsman by night and weekends.  Some of Matt’s fondest memories were spent each summer working with his cousins on his grandparent’s farm (tobacco and other crops) in Ohio.  In his teen years, Matt took interest in Woodworking in his high school shop classes.  Years later in November 2016, his upbringing (farming) collaborated with his passion to create TBC.  He procured a bundle of tobacco sticks to make homemade Christmas gifts for family and friends.  His first design was the ‘Kentucky Snowflake’ that sparked so much interest that he began designing and crafting other interesting wall art. 

Sara, mother to their 5 year old boy and a CRM Manager for a global insurance broker handles much of the administrative, PR and other planning for Tobacco Barn Craftsman.  

As we were listening to their stories, we noticed stacks upon stacks of these ‘tobacco sticks’ (or laths), buckets of sheered off remnants, saws and tools of every kind, and a rather, beat up-looking Cowboy hat that hung on the wall behind his tool-cluttered bench.  I wanted to ask “what’s up with the Cowboy hat?” but didn’t.  I bet it made for a great story or two based on it’s not-so-delicate-wear.  Off in the corner hung finished works of art waiting to be boxed up and sent as gifts across the Country.  I can’t tell you how impressed we were with unique creativity and history reclaimed into magnificent wall art that breathes a story.

Seed it. Set it. Top it. Cut It. House it. Strip it. Enjoy it.

While we stood back and watched them design, sizing sticks, layouts, sawing and sanding, I thought to myself, THIS is America!  This is the bread and butter on their walnut-stained tables they say their blessings at each meal.  Matt and Sara were bringing back Kentucky History in their art to be put in homes all across America.

Without giving away their trade secrets of acquiring their lath supply (locally sourced in  Kentucky), the design process or actual assembly, I can only show you what their end product looks like.  Actually, I had planned on expounding on the building process and took several photos but respectfully, as a fellow artisan, I just couldn’t.

So after a few hours of watching them create of one of their wares, they gifted us with THIS piece…the United States.

Tears filled our eyes because this beautiful work of art spoke to our nomadic hearts.Though it was a piece of Kentucky, it said ‘you have many more to travel’.  We were amazed that a pile of sticks and a few hours of skillful hands made THIS:

We just couldn’t put it down but we had to because it wasn’t quite finished.  Matt’s final work was signing, numbering and placing their ‘Kentucky Proud’ sticker that he so boasts about earning.  Oh, by the way, this particular piece is numbered #1 which means, we were gifted the prototype.

This beautiful piece forged a Kentucky friendship forever.  It will hang proudly in Liberty, and when the roads we’ve traveled have lessened, we will proudly move it to our future home.  Until then, it will remind us of the history and hard work that created it.

Depending on Our RV Family

When we set out on our nomadic quest, one big anchor seemed to weigh us down.  That big question, “what happens if we need to vacate our RV to fly home for emergency, go on a non-RV vacation or meet a client in a different city for more than an overnight?”  Since we’re not keen on boarding our nomad cats, we needed to think about the ‘what if’ and figure out how we’re going to find worthy person(s) to take care of our precious furry family members. 


Who ya gonna call?

Since we started RVing, there have been a few times when we’ve come to rely on our RV family.  Since we were already accustomed to leaning on our military family, it was a no-brainer that we continue relying on our birds of feather; those who are like minded and commiserate our lifestyle…(read more)

Our first time facing this dilemma was when we first arrived in Castroville, Texas in late fall of 2015.  Our son’s Army Unit Family Readiness Group called us to let us know when their unit will be arriving home from Afghanistan.  We wanted both of us to attend his homecoming at Fort Carson, Colorado but we were pretty sure only one of us were able to go because that looming issue was going to hold one of us down.  

Once we parked Liberty at the Alsation RV Resort, unhooked and set up, we immediately met our neighbor.   We discussed among ourselves if we even dare take a chance on asking someone we didn’t even know and giving them access to our RV to take care of our nomad cats and coach.  Sounds pretty scary right?

We were apprehensive. I mean, who wouldn’t be?  Would you give your house key to a complete stranger that just moved into your neighborhood to have access to everything you own and your beloved furry family members?  However, in lifestyle we now live, we ‘learn and earn’ our new family on the road…trust; and that trust goes both ways.

So, we took the chance…  

We noticed our neighbors in the motorhome next to us had a cat sticker on their door which gave us that ‘hmmm, I wonder if…’  Well, we put it in God’s hands and trusted that he would guide us.  The neighbors were nice and found that they too, were military veterans so that put us a bit more at ease.  Still, it was a bit scary however, we packed our backpacks, fueled up Captain America, gave the key to them leaving precise written instructions on the counter.  We patted our fuzzyheaded nomads on the noggins and kissed them goodbye hoping return to everything in tact and happy cats.  Early morning, we drove a 900 miles from San Antonio, Texas to Fort Carson Army Post in Colorado.  

After five days of welcoming our son home and helping him get settled, we drove back to San Antonio literally holding our breaths.  As we drove back into the RV Resort, we were relieved to see our ‘then’ Cyclone Toyhauler still parked there looking the same as when we left.  We unlocked our RV door only to be greeted by our two sleepy-eyed kitties who were seemingly glad to see us.  We were thrilled that they had all of their fluffy hair and were still pudgy.  Sighs of relief and smiles beamed on all of our faces. We were grateful that they AND our home on wheels were taken care so lovingly.  It was then we learned that with this lifestyle, we CAN rely on our RV family should we ever we have to step away. 

Fast forward to February 2017, we were at a slow crawl with no real set schedule from making our way to San Antonio, Texas from southern Arizona to get our annual medical appointments completed.  However, we were stopped in our tracks in El Paso when we received a call from Dan’s mom to ‘come quick’ as Dan’s Dad was gravely ill back in his hometown in Pennsylvania.

Already stressed from finding boondocking spots on our way back to San Antonio, this just sped up the process and now the emotional aspect of Dan losing his Dad took a toll.  Our reservations for Fort Sam Houston FamCamp were penned in for March 1st; practically a whole month away.  We called to see if we could arrive earlier because of our family emergency.  Unfortunately, we were told there was ‘no room at the inn’ so we were scampering for a place to park Liberty near San Antonio to get a rush flight home. We thought at that moment that we were going to ‘have to’ board the girls; something we were emphatically against. 

But then our RV Family came to the rescue!

Our RV besties Timily (Tim & Emily) from Ownlessdomore who have crossed our paths several times in the past couple years of RVing helped us.  They were already in San Antonio, Texas at Lackland AFB FamCamp for their own medical appointments.  We connected with them instantly and in turn, they spoke to the staff to see if we could get a site in two days.  Unfortunately, this Lackland’s FamCamp didn’t take reservations, so there was no way to know if we’d get in or not.  So as we continued to make our way closer to San Antonio, Emily gave us an hour-by-hour assessment of what sites were coming open.  The day we were to arrive, she kept an eye on any site opening up.  Needless to say, her vigilance paid off.  When we arrived at the commercial gate to the Air Force base, Tim even met us and escorted our tired and weary souls right to our site.  

We immediately parked, set up our RV and shortly after made our flight reservations.  Before we could even ask, Tim and Emily were right there waiting for directions on how to care for Krissie and Kandi.  They even took us to the airport the next morning and picked us up when we returned.  Our kitties fell in love with Emily even though she’s not a ‘cat person’ but it seemed they grew on Emily…even though she’s allergic to cats.

We’ve appreciate that our RV family understands and commiserates our nomadic lifestyle. And of course, we do the same for others. Earning each other’s trust isn’t taken lightly. We always try to be good people and render help when needed…

…we have to because who else are ya gonna call?

Don’t think that we hand the keys over to just anyone.  Similarly, when we lived in our S&B (sticks and bricks), we have a mental checklist of how we pick our pet sitters and caretakers. To us, its extremely important that they not only ‘like’ cats but they must love ‘our’ cats because they are our furkids.  We’d want them to treat our girls just the same as we do.

Finally and worth noting, an RV is not like a S&B in respect to the mechanics and engineering.  Who knows better than our fellow RVers who know the electrical, HVAC, water and sewer systems. While there may be professional pet sitters wherever we park, if something goes awry with our RV, they won’t know what to do.  

So, if you’re an RVer who needs to leave your RV and/or pets to tend to family events or even a vacation or cruise, look no further than your RV’s door.  We’re not saying just throw caution to the wind.  Trust your gut and seek someone who will keep your home on wheels and all that’s in it safe and sound.

B’s Bakery in Frankfort, KY – Grog & Grub Review

During our recent month long stay in Kentucky this past May (2017), we took a field trip to Lexington but stopped in Frankfort, Kentucky’s State Capitol. Frankfort has an array of historical and cool architectural buildings to see.  We were getting quite hungry as granola bars and coffee we had for our breakfast-on-the-run weren’t very sustaining.

RV Preparedness Tips for Weather Emergencies

Living in an RV can pose anxious moments in the event of inclement weather.  Since we’ve been full-timing in 2014, we’ve had to evacuate Liberty numerous times.  We credit our military backgrounds for being prepared and knowing what to do in states of emergencies.  As former lifesavers, its been ingrained in our heads and we’ve preached ‘Always have a Float Plan’ to anyone headed out to sea.  Likewise, when RVing or Camping, we strongly urge everyone to ‘ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN OF ACTION’.

If you’re a new(er) RVer or Camper, our best advice is anytime you get situated at your new site, locate your closest storm shelter.  Always have an evacuation plan.  When the weather radio or television stations post ‘Watch’ (i.e. Tornado Watch), its a good idea to get your GO BAG ready, have jackets ready and put your shoes on (not flip flops!). When the local authorities post ‘Warning’ (ie. Tornado Warning), usually sirens will go off, its best to relocate you and your pets to the closest storm shelter immediately.

The most important is to get YOU AND YOUR FAMILY to a safe and sturdy shelter; preferably one that’s been designated as so.  At campgrounds and RV parks, they are usually bath houses and community rooms.  Do not wait!  Its better to be safe than sorry.

Weather can change as quick as your next breath and if you’re not aware of it’s changes, it can catch you and your family off guard if you’re not prepared.  As we’ve experienced many times, Mother Nature always wins.  

First, let’s talk about WEATHER STAGES:

WEATHER OUTLOOK:  issued when hazardous weather event is ‘possible’ in the next week. Outlooks are intended to raise awareness of potential for significant weather that could threaten life or property.
WEATHER ADVISORY:  Issued when hazardous weather event will be occurring, imminent or likely.  Advisories are for less serious conditions than warnings that cause significant inconvenience and if caution is not exercised, could threaten life or property. 

WEATHER WATCH:  Issued when the risk of hazardous weather event has increased significantly but it’s occurrence, location or timing is still uncertain.  A Watch means that hazardous weather is possible.  You should have a plan of action in case a storm threatens.  You should listen for information and possible warnings especially when planning travel or outdoor activities.

WEATHER WARNING:  Issued when a hazardous weather event is occurring, imminent or likely.  A warning means weather conditions pose a threat to life or property.  People in the path of the storm need to take protective action.
We are going to give you a step-by-step reference guide should you and your family be faced with weather emergencies.  

If you have +24 hours notice of impending detrimental weather…

  • Evaluate your surroundings immediately.   Do not wait to do this.
  • Keep tuned into local weather forecast stations.
  • Relocate if you’re near a river, ocean, washes or flash flood area. Seek higher ground.
  • Pack your GO BAG (listed below)
  • Have shoes and jackets readily available.
  • Stow gear that’s outside (i.e. camp chairs, tables, grill, fire pit, etc.)
  • Let your family know where you are or where you are headed.
  • Charge up all electronics and battery banks.
  • Refuel vehicles.
  • Withdraw $$ from an ATM.
  • Pack extra water in your GO VEHICLE.
  • Pack a snacks or lunch to go.
If you cannot relocate your RV or 
If you have less than 1 hour notice of impending detrimental weather…
  • Know where the closest storm shelter is located and prepare to go.
  • Keep tuned into local weather forecast stations.
  • All members of your party should put sturdy shoes on.  Skip the flip flops; you may return to debris fields or sites.
  • Jackets should be readily available.
  • GO BAG should be packed and at the door ready to go or in your vehicle.
  • Portable kennels should be in your vehicle and leashes should be ready for your pets.
  • Each should make quick bathroom visits.
  • If you have time, secure outdoor gear.
  • Walk your dog out for a potty break.
Let’s say it here…

An RV or Camper is the worst place to be in a tornado, flood, or violent weather!

We witnessed this aftermath in Bandera, Texas
after a measurable storm and river flooded.
This was at an RV Park located less than 100 yards away from the river.
This is what we have in our Evacuation ‘GO BAG’:
  • Identification & Drivers License(s)
  • Cash (Paper and Coins)
  • Important Papers & Phone Numbers (lock box)
  • Prescriptions & Eyeglasses
  • Essential Oils
  • 4 bottles of water (2 for each of us)
  • 2 bottles of water (1 for each cat)
  • A ziploc bag of dry cat food
  • Cat feeding bowls
  • Cat harnesses and leashes
  • Cat Carriers (cats will be in them)
  • Granola bars, dried fruit and snacks
  • Weather Radio
  • Electronic Battery Banks & Cords for Cellphones (fully charged)
  • Flashlight(s) (fresh batteries)
  • Insurance policy info
  • Jackets and/or Rain Coats
  • Emergency Blanket(s)
  • First Aid Kit
Additionally, we’ve already stressed this above but we always have 2 gallons of water in our truck at all times.  You can alter your GO BAG to fit yourself or your family accordingly (i.e. baby items, medical supplies, etc.)

To wrap this public service announcement, our point of this article is awareness and preparedness that you may endure during your RV travels. This isn’t meant to frighten you or deter you from living your dream on the road; just a simple reminder to be ready to ‘expect the unexpected’.  Your and your family’s safety should be most important.  Things can be replaced, people can’t.  Please be safe!
