For the first time in five years, Independence Day falls on a Wednesday, leaving travelers unsure which end of the week to turn into an extended break. Travel agency AAA projects that 42.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home between July 3 and July 8.

RV dealer opens an RV museum
Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
RVDA member Jack Sisemore and his son, Trent, opened an RV museum this spring behind their Amarillo, Texas, RV dealership, Sisemore Traveland. It showcases RVs they've bought and lovingly restored over the years. Inside a 6,000-square-foot metal building, the RVs are staged with picnic tables and other camping paraphernalia. The first RV you see when you walk in is a 1948 Flxible bus used in the 2006 Robin Williams movie "RV," which plays in a constant loop on a TV screen near the long red-and-white bus that Trent Sisemore hunted down in a Hollywood studio.

The Clemenses will have plenty of company at the campgrounds they visit along the way — the RV sector is on the road to recovery.

How to keep your online business information secure
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Information-technology security is essential to protect your business against hackers and viruses that could bring your computer system — and your business — to its knees. With enough safeguards in place, hackers will look for easier targets. Change default passwords and account names when installing new computers or software. And use encryption software to protect customers' financial information from theft during transactions. Or outsource the job to a company like eBay Inc.'s PayPal unit. Encryption also is vital to protect your company's internal information — personnel files, financial accounts, and other data. More
