    i found a great source of e-books – my “local” library near my mailing address. i am a fulltimer and rarely there, but they have a website and you can check out print e-books, read them, and return them electronically. i do print ones instead of audiobooks because the audiobooks are too slow for me (i read about 300 wpm) and the mrs usually has the TV or radio going, so the soundwaves belong to her. when i’m driving, i just drive- no e-books.

    I see Jennifer doesn’t pack any good snack food for you, Fritos, Cheetos or the like. Never should have let her go to that spa.

    I love my satellite radio. I get every sort of music, talk radio and old radio shows which are fun. Even comedy channels. Also, I don’t like long drives, I like back roads/ small towns so stop often, which keeps the trip fun and interesting. For breakfast, a good thing to pack is liquid eggs- much smaller than a whole carton!

    Nice, Mike & Jennifer! Enjoyed this :-)

    I am a charter member of Audible.com and can download 5 books for $25 each month so we have lots to listen to while driving. We also have a satellite radio that is great. I make food to freeze and then put it in vacuum sealed bags to it doesn’t get freezer burn and packs easily in freezer. Next trip I am thinking about bringing along our blender so we can make healthy smoothies on the road. Eating enough fruits and veggies is easier to consume this way!

    One of our favorite tricks is to get the vacuum packed indian entrĂ©es. We add cut up vegetables (can even pick up pre-cut at places like Wal Mart or Trader Joes along the way.) We then place it together in a small slow cooker secured in our sink and let it all cook to perfection as we roll along on a long driving day. Dinner is all cooked when we get to the campground. We don’t even need to plug in since we bring prepacked and pre-cooked brown rice (available at Safeway) or converted brown rice which we can make in a pan on the propane stove. We serve the now spicy and nicely gravied vegetables over it. Just enough for two!

    We use My Media Mall to check out books.
    http://www.mymediamall.net
    Using our home library card we can download audiobooks & e-books to our phone. Wi-Fi is needed to download the books. If I put a book on hold I will receive an email notice when the book is available.
    One time when we were traveling I went to the local library because where we camped didn’t have Wi-Fi. Took less than 5 minutes to download the book.

  8. May I suggest my new campground mystery series for your ereaders? It follows the adventures of Baby Boomer Rvers and each one is planned to be a light weekend read. The first, “Bats and Bones”, is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and the second, “The Blue Coyote”, is also, but until the end of May you can download it free for any ereader on Smashwords.com https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/301510
