We received a surprising email recently, from Semi-True Tales of our Life on the Road was one of 20 blogs to win an award in the category of "Best RV and Caravan Blogs".

I am more of a blog writer than a blog reader. I subscribe to a small number of blogs, mostly those of close personal friends, expanding my reading when we are stationary and/or in an area with high speed internet access (not here!). I was not (and still am not) familar with TripBase and don't know how they found us - but it was fun to read their congratulatory email. If you want to learn more about TripBase and the other blogs they honored in the RV category, you can click on the icon added to the top left of the blog.

Kinda' fun! What we enjoy the most, though, are the comments and emails we get from readers who liked a particular story, or photo - or like to follow our travels while they daydeam about travels of their own. Thanks to TripBase for the recognition, and to all of our readers for your all kind comments!


  1. Congratulations on your award! It's funny to think of so many people I don't know being so familiar with your activities and opinions...

  2. Congradulations on your award... I really do rnjoy reading your post... Thanks


  3. Congratulations on your award! We are the "travelwithwhippets" people who follow your blog. Dianne and I have a question. How did you find and apply for your current work camping position? It sounds wonderful. My brother lives across the river from Portland, so a work camping position like the one you currently have would be ideal for a visit to that area. Thanks for any help you can give.


  4. Congratulations, Laurie. Of COURSE you won the award. Your blog is fabulous to read, you sound accessible, real, and most of all INTERSTING. You and Odel are interesting people and you have a wonderful way of sharing that with all of us so willingly, good and bad, but always with a positive and humorous outlook. Actually, your blog is the only one I check in with daily.

  5. congratulations and well deserved!!! I can say I knew you when- LOL

  6. you got to admit that you have the very best blog of anyone we know. Don't know how you find the time to do it!!!
