COME BACK FITTER

Hello from The Fit RV Headquarters! James and I just got home from a whirlwind RV trip in the fantastic stat of Arizona.

The trip went off without a hitch, I’m happy to report. We finally got to bust out our bikes OUTSIDE! It’s been a long snowy winter in Utah, which meant the only biking we were getting was on the spin bike in our basement. Not nearly as fun as the real thing. So, the warm Arizona sun was a welcomed break. It felt great to temporarily shed my parka and pull on a pair of shorts.

SPRING TWITTER PARTY

It’s Almost Spring; Let’s Talk RVing! Join Our Twitter Party and Win!

by Stefany Adinaro

Can you feel it, gang?!?! Spring is in the air!

 

With RV season just gearing up, James and I would like to invite you to join us on our upcoming Twitter Party, Thursday April 27th at 9pm EST (6pm Pacific) for some great conversations about hitting the road this spring.

 

We’ll chat about things like trip planning, getting the rig prepped for the road, and we’ll even collectively brainstorm some top bucket-list RV destinations.

 

And Did I Mention Prizes?!?

There will be two prize packs given out over the course of the hour. Each prize pack will include a $25 gift card AND some cool Go RVing swag…just for partying with us! (Prizing is open to U.S. residents only, sorry!)

 

Just What is a Twitter Party?

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter party before, it’s pretty simple and great fun. Think of it like sitting around a campfire and having a conversation with a bunch of friends, only it’s a cyber-campfire, so less pressure!

You’ll log in to your Twitter account at the designated party time. Make sure you’ve already “followed” our Twitter page @TheFitRV. We’ll be tweeting open-ended questions throughout the hour that always begin with “Q1, Q2, Q3… etc.”, and you respond with your own thoughts and suggestions by starting your tweet with “A1, A2, A3…etc.” Plus, you’ll always include the hashtag #GoRVing in your post…that’s super important since it’s the only way we can see your responses.

The key to participating in a Twitter party is following a specific hashtag. Our hashtag for this party is #GoRVing. All party posts will always include this hashtag, even the ones you post. That way, you can easily search the hashtag up in the Twitter search bar (then choose the “Latest” tab) and you’ll be able to see everyone’s responses, not just the hosts’.

The two prize packs are awarded at random, but here’s a key tip: Consider each of your “A” tweets as well as your replies to other partiers as an entry for the prizes. So the more you interact, the better your chances of winning a prize!

Sounds Great! How Do I Join?

To participate and be eligible for prizes, just follow these steps:

  1. Follow The Fit RV and Go RVing on Twitter.
  2. RSVP in the comments below by entering your Twitter handle.
  3. Show up for the party at 9pm EST, which will be hosted on @TheFitRV homepage. Remember to “refresh” frequently during the party so you won’t miss any of the “Q”s!
  4. Respond to our topics by starting your own tweet with “A1, A2, etc” (and also reply to other partiers’ responses) always making sure to use the #GoRVing hashtag in each tweet or reply.
  5. Pay attention to our announcements of winners throughout the hour! If your name comes up, we’ll have you message the Prize Patrol to arrange to collect your prizes.

 

It’s as easy as that. Can’t wait to chat with you at the party, gang! See you there!

FINDING BALANCE ON THE ROAD

Even though we’re part-timers, James and I have been on the road a lot lately.

 

 

James is fortunate. His day job allows him to work remotely, so it’s easy for him to hit the road. He’s actually pretty great at balancing work while still making the trip feel special.

 

 

I guess I’m to blame for why we aren’t out there RVing more. I’m a personal trainer and wellness coach, and even though others in my field can do that remotely, I feel I’m more effective working in person. But, that’s not the only reason we’re not full-timers.

 

I like the balance of having an actual home, and having the RV as a vacation, and keeping the two things separate. So when I told you we’ve been on the road a lot lately, you probably assumed that was a good thing. And…it usually is, but when the RV starts feeling a little too “home-like”…you know, the days start to look the same, or I’m less interested in exploring my surroundings … I start getting nervous. That’s when I know it’s time to head home.

GET THE BEST ZZZ’S IN YOUR RV

James and I have a woodpecker that’s taken up residence in a huge Silver Maple tree in the backyard of “The Fit RV” Headquarters.

 

 

In fact, I can hear him as I type, which is why he’s made his way in my article. He’s up on the roof pecking at the metal flashing on our chimney. It echoes down into my office, but doesn’t bother me. On the contrary, I find it amusing. He’s like an adorable little pet doing a silly trick.
