My wife and I have been on the road for a few weeks, we went up I-5 from Los Angeles and over to the central Oregon coast and now down into California on 101. We think that we have seen a larger number of high end class A's that appear brand new than ever before. I'm talking clean, dirt free wheel wells and running gear new.

I'm thinking that the owners are new to the life style and bought way over their heads, that, or the average RVer just can't afford to travel right now. We're in an ocean/bay front park right now, nothing special, no trees or hedges dividing the spaces, no paved roads, only about a 8'X8' pad next to the parking spot, no gravel or paving to park on in the sites just dirt, no fire rings, just dead grass but it is an ocean/bay front park with great views. Normally we are among rigs similar to ours, a few years old gassers with a little wear and tear, not this trip, DP's all over very clean and stately, in what if it were not for the views is a low end park with no facilities to speak of, not what we are accustomed to seeing. The number of really big trailers is also greater than normal.

It just seems that it has been this way since we left home.


Ya ever wonder what they all think of you when you pull in???

There is a great article in The Atlantic this morning concerning working remotely/from home:

The Atlantic wrote:

Last fall, 94 percent of employees surveyed in a Mercer study reported that remote work was either business as usual or better than working in the office, likely because it lacks the distractions, annoyances, and soft abuses that come with co-workers and middle managers. Workers are happier because they don’t have to commute and can be evaluated mostly on their actual work rather than on the optics-driven albatross of “office culture,” which is largely based on either the HR handbook or the pieces of the HR handbook your boss chooses to ignore.

The reason working from home is so nightmarish for many managers and executives is that a great deal of modern business has been built on the substrate of in-person work. As a society, we tend to consider management a title rather than a skill, something to promote people to, as well as a way in which you can abstract yourself from the work product. When you remove the physical office space—the place where people are yelled at in private offices or singled out in meetings—it becomes a lot harder to spook people as a type of management. In fact, your position at a company becomes more difficult to justify if all you do is delegate and nag people.


Sure hits the nail on the head for me...
