Living Life for Boaters & RVers 

Bob and Mavis Duthie have boated on the water for over 50 years and owned Recreational Vehicles (RVs) since 2007. In 1999 they bought a Grand Banks Trawler and cruised America’s Great Loop. In 2007 after completing the Loop they purchased a Winnebago RV and drove to just about every place in Canada and the USA. 

RV Touring and Cruising America's Great Loops are dream and bucket list items for those who long for adventure on the land and water.  Bob had a career in engineering with two big companies and then started his own business in 1989 providing digital presentations and training programs for large companies. Now his company, Duthie Learning, is focused on teaching how to tour on RVs and live on boats.   Donations are appreciated.

If your are new to RVing be sure to start with RV Touring for Newbies. We have had two 24 ft Winnebago's since 2007. Learn from the free posts found in  RV Touring Stories.

 "This is a wonderful travel guide for anyone in an RV to explore the Great South West."  John & Margaret Lester

As both a planning tool for your trip and a great remembrance of what you have seen, this video series is something you will be glad to have." Kent & Sandy Gardam 


The Great Loop  programs contain thousands of maps and  photos to show what awaits you. Each photo is captioned, narrated and associated with a map. Boaters can now experience the loop riding on the Katy Leigh (above) through narrated videos. All are going to be free soon.

“I believe it's the best available preview for anyone planning to cruise the Loop and will prove to be a most helpful companion when they finally get underway."
--Fred Myers, CruiseGuide Author, Florence AL

 I find the commentary, short, sweet, and right to the point and it seems to always hit the important points."
