Janet Arnold

Janet is from Southern California. After many years of sleeping on the ground, in a tent, she finally decided there had to be a better way. In the summer of 2013, she bought a brand new Roadtrek Agile motorhome. She has never owned or traveled in an RV. Janet is now traveling the U.S. and Canada for several months. Recently widowed, she decided that she wanted to visit and thank each person that has loved and supported her and her husband over the past three years. She also is a water color artist who is still waiting to pick up a brush since her husband died. Janet works part time as a tour guide and tour manager. She takes people on vacation throughout the United States and specializes in the National Parks of the west. Janet is happiest when she can share the great outdoors with others.

After a day of rain, the sun is shining once again and the wind is blowing. I have been thinking about the wind. A gentle breeze is delightful. A 20-40 mph gust is another story, especially when I am driving a high clearance vehicle. There was one moment last summer as I was driving toward […]

You may remember that a  week and a half ago I posted about my pending trip to Alaska to meet Jane, a fellow Roadtreker. Leaving my RT behind and Elsie the cat in the good hands of a new house sitter, I got on a plane and started the trek north. I had a great time!!! […]

Hmm, what does this have to do with the RV lifestyle and Roadtreking? When I first started to blog for Mike and all of you I started a journey down a road that I never thought I would be on. I, a seasoned hiker, backpacker and tent camper bought myself and RV and took to […]

Last week I had a friend visit from Vermont. Her major goal was to escape the cold and the snow and visit me. Escaping the weather sounds like many of you that have been posting on the Roadtrek Facebook group lately. The nice thing about knowing Diane for over thirty years, is our friendship is […]

Have you ever been invited to a Time Share talk? You know the ones I am talking about, you get lured in with all the special gifts they will offer and hopefully you will buy into a vacation time share condo. I have never gone to one. Today, however, I went to a 5 star […]

While Mike and Jennifer have been traveling the arctic vortex some of us have been aiming for a different experience of winter. Of course, I live in San Diego county so my experience of winter is always different than most of the country. I mean, we get cold when it drops into the 50′s. Out […]

How do people select names for their RV’s? I decided to do some research. I began to research names people have given their Class B RV’s. There seems to be a variety of ways one can name their RV. Many I found seem to be a play on words involving RoadTrek. There was Artee, RT, […]

About a month ago my Subaru met up with a Jeep in a parking lot down by the beach. It was a little too close. Bummer. Now my Subaru is in the body shop getting some work done so she can be spiffy and new again. I love my Subaru. While my car is getting […]

What is wrong with this picture? No Roadtrek! My driveway looks so lonely. It is missing my Roadtrek and I am too. Right now it is at the dealers getting solar panels on and other things fixed. Tomorrow I pick it  up. I am looking forward to that. I have missed seeing it and spending […]
