We received a great comment on a recent blog post from a couple of RVers who share our views on healthcare – and much more. As always happens when we meet another frugal rver, we meandered on over to their site and immediately felt at “home.” Their site, The Good Luck Duck, is so refreshing and full of links to scores of things those living on the cheap in an rv need to know.
As it turns out, we do have so much in common – we all love cats, we all want to live a simpler, more focused life, we all have issues that seem to follow us around in our new lives (family? friends?) and we all live in old Fleetwood Bounder motor homes. Ours is named Joey, theirs is called the Good Luck Duck. Why do we name inanimate objects? To make them more human, of course, and to justify the affection we feel for them. We feel even more affection for Roxi and Annie, even if we’ve never met them in person.
Their web site is a growing and organic affair, with a fantastically useful section on how to get cheap or free health services, a superb collection of resources on boondocking, links to ways to earn money while living the simple life in an RV, a page with their own Amazon store, a great blogroll, and a page showing off the beautiful jewelry hand-crafted by candlelight in the middle of the woods in a motor home called the Duck. It’s a site to enjoy and come back to often, which we plan to do.
If there’s one thing that’s sometimes hard to figure out in this life, it’s the whole community thing. We know that meeting people online is a great substitute for the real thing, and we cherish the companions we’ve met and made friends with that way. But what we wouldn’t give for a transporter like they had on Star Trek, so we could all meet for the evening around a campfire in the deep dark ancient woods somewhere, and pass the night in conversation, song, and storytelling. Oh, well, maybe someday…
Can just picture Joey and The Duck looking about as cute as two bookends in the forest! LOOK!
