I get a lot of e-mails from people who are just getting into the fulltime RV lifestyle and have questions about everything from which state to chose as their legal domicile to what kind of RV is best for them, to which camping clubs, if any, to join. One of the most frequent questions is […]

The Little Dutch Boy

Do you remember the children’s story about a little Dutch boy who saves his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike? I kind of felt like that youngster yesterday. You may remember our black tank blockage last week, and that one suggestion was to drill a small hole in the end of the […]

A Lot Going On

We’ve had a lot going on and have been busy ever since we got to Tucson on Monday. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to ease up anytime soon. Wednesday I got my lab work done at the VA hospital in preparation for medical appointments next week. The blood draw went fine and then […]

She’s At It Again

As I said in yesterday’s blog, on Friday Terry stocked up on yarn at a shop we found up in Gainesville, so she spent yesterday putting the skeins of yarn onto a swift and then wound them onto a ball winder. Then she wound the warp (don’t worry, I don’t understand most of it either) […]

I got an e-mail yesterday that brought a tear to my eye, though it’s a story we have heard over and over. The woman who wrote it said that she and her husband planned to start fulltiming three years ago when they both turned 62, but somebody convinced them that they really needed to continue […]

Wherever you are today and whoever you are sharing the holiday with, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you take a few moments to consider all we have to be thankful for. Don’t just give it a passing thought, think about it. With all of our problems, we live in the greatest […]

A Soggy Day

It started raining hard in the wee hours of the morning yesterday and never stopped for more than a few minutes all day long. Many areas in central Florida were under flood watches, there were a few tornado warnings, and many areas got as much as seven inches of rain! Yes, SEVEN inches! That’s a […]

Good News, Bad News

Well, the good news is that I felt a lot better yesterday. So good that I managed to spend several hours working on my new Big Lake book. By the time I knocked off last night I’d written about 1,500 words. The bad news is that Terry is coughing and has a sore throat and […]

That’s been my routine for the last few days and I don’t see it ending anytime soon, based upon the way I feel. But believe me, I’m more than ready for it to be over. And worse, Miss Terry now has a scratchy throat and has sneezed a few times. I really hope she’s not […]

Holidays On The Road

We are almost halfway through our fifteenth year of fulltime RVing which means that we have spent a lot of holidays on the road. Most of them really aren’t family events, except for the two coming up, Thanksgiving and Christmas. But for many RVers, they can be challenging. Of course it’s easy if your family […]
