The other day I was going to the post office in Tuscaloosa to mail off some orders and was stopped at a traffic light when a man in the vehicle behind me got out and walked up to my window and said, “Hello Nick.” It was longtime reader and friend Jack Allen. He and his […]

Will It Ever End?

Will the wind and cold ever end? This is Arizona, darn it, not Minnesota! The wind has been rocking our motorhome so much you would think a couple of 20-somethings on their honeymoon were inside, not a couple of old farts like us. And that only adds to the cold. How cold is it? It […]

A Move To Seaside

We were awake at 6 a.m. yesterday because it was moving day. And though it was only a 120 mile trip, we needed to get to our new location, the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve, early to snag a good site. This is a very popular campground and stays busy all summer long. We were on […]

We’re moving today, but it will be a short trip, just five miles east on Interstate 10 to the Pima County Fairgrounds. We probably won’t even need the GPS to find our way there. We’ve spent a week here at Voyager RV Resort under the Thousand Trails rate of $3/day. But that rate is only […]

Yes, I was wrong. No need to note that on your calendar or anything like that; I’m wrong a lot of the time. This was just one more instance. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that the Pennsylvania Turnpike was one of the worst stretches of road in the country, and based upon past experience, that […]

Now That’s Fast!

In a blog post back in December, I mentioned the Amazon Prime program, which my buddy Greg White turned us on to. The program gives special discounts on Amazon purchases and free two-day shipping on anything stocked and sold by Amazon. While it costs about $80 a year, the savings quickly added up and it […]

In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how my buddy Greg White wouldn’t take me to Dairy Queen for my requisite sweet treat, and I have to say that I was rather dismayed when one reader made a post to Greg’s blog, congratulating him for holding fast, and even suggesting he feed me a rice cake! […]

As I reported in a previous blog entry Caught In A Dust Storm, on Monday of last week we drove from Williams, Arizona to Juniper Ridge RV Resort  in Show Low, Arizona. On Interstate 40, between Meteor Crater and Winslow, we ran into the worst dust storm I had ever been in. Soon after we […]
