Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

You Must Plan Ahead

Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

Blue Sky And Visitors

The rain finally cleared out sometime early Tuesday morning and we woke up to mostly blue sky, something we have not seen in a while. And to make it even better, it was in the low 60s and the wind wasn’t blowing. While I’d prefer it was in the 70s, I can live with that. […]

A Long Traffic Jam

After spending most of Monday morning on the telephone arguing with the idiots at Temecula Valley Hospital to get them to release my records to the VA hospital in Tucson that they were supposed to do last week, they finally got off their lazy butts and did something and sent the records late on Monday, […]

Hurry Up And Wait

We spent yesterday morning at the VA hospital and accomplished absolutely nothing. But that was because of no failing on the part of the VA. Even after jumping through all the privacy hoops they insisted on, the dweebs at the hospital in Temecula, California failed to send the records from my time there. So with […]

Terry and I have always enjoyed helping new RVers learn about the RV lifestyle, and yesterday we got to help a very special newbie get settled into her new home on wheels. Terry’s sister Dani bought a brand new Cedar Creek fifth wheel trailer and yesterday afternoon it was delivered to a lot she is […]

They’re Coming!

The temperatures in the desert are inching toward the triple digits and folks from Phoenix and Tucson are headed for the cool, comfortable high country of the White Mountains. We were out running errands yesterday and there was a steady stream of cars and campers rolling through Show Low. Two of those rigs that will […]

Goodbye Tucson

Our time in Tucson is over and today we leave Voyager RV Resort for Apache Junction. We’ve been here over three weeks and during that time we have not had one day to just chill out and relax. It’s been a whirlwind of annual medical appointments, working the Escapees Escapade rally, more medical stuff, and […]

In our first year on the road, we made a pilgrimage to Slab City in Niland, California. If you’re not familiar with this outpost of individuality, Slab City is located on the site of an abandoned World War II Marine training base. It is home to a motley collection of people that most would call […]

Another Windy Day

One thing you can count on in Arizona during late winter through summer is wind. Lots and lots of wind. And yesterday was another very windy day here in Tucson. I was sure glad we were not out on the highway. But we did see a few RVs leaving Voyager RV Resort and new ones […]
