If you’ve been following the whole Phil Robertson media fireworks show, you probably already know that A&E Network has now rescinded its decision to suspend the family patriarch from the popular Duck Dynasty reality TV series. I won’t go into the debate here, it’s been covered everywhere, including on Bad Nick, but I got to […]

I figure that by now most of you are broke from all of your holiday shopping, so today I thought I’d share some ideas to help you save money, courtesy of my book The Frugal RVer and my seminar by the same name that I present at RV rallies and shows. There are so many […]

Thank you all for your e-mail and messages of support. I’m not overly worried about the skin cancer thing at this point; it is what it is. The folks at the V.A. have always taken very good care of me. My only concern is that cancer has claimed several members of my family, including my […]

We were both worn out from our early start and long day Wednesday, and the strong wind rocking our motorhome and rattling our slide toppers made it hard to fall asleep so when we finally did, we slept in yesterday morning. I started the day with a bunch of orders to fill, and spent several […]

If you love your freedom, thank a vet. That sums it up, folks. Without the sacrifices made by our military members past and present, you and I would not have the freedoms we enjoy and all too often take for granted. And while you’re thanking that vet, thank his or her family members, too. If […]

When some 50 employees at Heartland RV in Elkhart, Indiana were called off the job this week and told to report to the company’s main building, they must have wondered what was going on. Especially given the volatile RV market, which has had plenty of ups and downs in recent years. Even when you work […]

Where does the time go? Our first week in Apache Junction ends today and it feels like we just got here. We’ve been busy every day. Yesterday, after the usually round of answering e-mails from our readers and filling some orders, Terry and I made a quick stop at the post office to mail them […]

I want to start today’s blog by wishing our dear friend Jan White happy birthday. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting her, Jan is a wonderfully kind and patient woman, which she needs to be to put up with hubby Greg, and in extra large doses when Greg and […]

A Lot Accomplished

Running our business on the road gives us a lot of freedom. We pretty much set our own schedule, we sometimes work hard for days in a row, then we take some time off to play or just relax. And since we’re not locked into a schedule, we don’t have to fight the weekend crowds […]

How windy was it yesterday? It was so windy the National Weather Service asked all the politicians in Washington to shut up. No seriously, it was so windy it blew the tramp stamp right off our waitress’ back at dinner last night. For much of the day winds here in north central were 35+ miles […]
