A little over three years ago I was asked to write a weekly blog for RV Life. At the time I wasn’t quite sure what a blogger did. Today, approximately one hundred and fifty six blog entries later, I am still not totally sure! Either way I want to thank those that have been following my blog these past few years. The tracking software on the RV Life website says the blog has been viewed over 171,000 times. I trust that my “followers” consist of a wide reader base and it is just not one crazed person sitting in a mental ward with nothing better to do than to click on my blog 171,000 times while eating bags of Cheetos. That would be a little scary and very depressing knowing I have spent the last three years fueling the habit of a junk food addict! Anyway, I would love to hear from you, unless you are that one crazed Cheetos lover mentioned above, and let me know how I am doing and what you would like to see more of. Just log in and click on the comment button at the bottom of your screen. Yes, you have to enter the “secret code” to prove you are not an automated spam generating computer based in Nigeria “or the Cheetos eater”, but that is the price we must pay to travel the information highway! Plus, you have my personal guarantee that your email address will not be sold to a slimy timeshare company in Florida or a crazed Cheetos junkie!
Blogging on the information highway, just another adventure in RVing!
Blogging in the Boondocks is my Favorite Pastime.
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
