Having a longer rig with a gas truck means I can't always drive in and out of gas stations with ease. Gas stations with RV Islands quickly became favorites because of their stress free nature. This site is meant to be a collection of stress free stops that can accommodate longish rigs with gas engines.

How I keep track of where we are / RV Decor / Good to have in an Emergency

Traveling for a while I quickly realized that it would be a good idea to be able to know at a moment's notice exactly where I was.

I imagined calling 911 only to not know (under pressure) my exact address or where I put the RV park's receipt to find it! When seconds count, I don't want to be searching for our current address.

                I also needed something to hang as decor in this area of my living room/kitchen.

Thus the ever changing address chalk board was born. I found these in the craft section of Walmart for just few dollars and the peace of mind they give me has been worth every penny.


I update them every time we move and now when I need to order something on Amazon, or give my address to order pizza, or put it in Google maps to find out where the closest Walmart is I have it close at hand.
 



To get the letters to be dark enough to be able to see them across the room I use chalk board marker (also available at Walmart in the craft isle).




I hung them with command hooks and also use a second one for motivational sayings, but have been toying with using it to indicate if the grey tanks are open or closed, as I could put open on one side and closed on the other and just flip the sign when things change.
