Occasionally I have RV salesmen or RV dealers take me to task because I frequently say that if their lips are moving, they are lying. No, that’s not true for everybody in the business, and maybe it’s not even true for the majority of them. But it’s been my experience that it’s more common than […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we needed to run into New Smyrna Beach to get the registrations renewed on our vehicles, three blog readers left comments or sent me emails asking why I didn’t just do it online, which would be quicker and more convenient. When we changed our official domicile from […]

After reading yesterday’s blog Apples And Oranges, a reader wanted to know why we would take our new van all the way to Arizona and put all of those miles on it instead of driving our Ford Explorer. He said when he buys a new vehicle he does everything he can to keep the miles […]

After being gone for so long it was absolutely wonderful to sleep in our own bed Wednesday night. In fact, it was so good that neither one of us wanted to get up yesterday morning. But we did, because we had a lot of catching up to do. The first order of business for me […]

Three blog readers have asked me how we are tolerating staying in Terry’s sister’s fifth wheel trailer in the middle of an Arizona summer, and wondering if it is even safe to do so, given the limited insulation and barely adequate air conditioners that most RVs have. Down in the desert it would not be […]

After reading my blog post the other day titled We Got Boosted in which I wrote about the weBoost 4G RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit I was sent to review, I got three or four inquiries from blog readers wanting to know how often we get freebies like that, and how they can get […]

RVers are always fun people to hang out with, and the most fun of them all of the members of the Escapees RV Club. Those folks know how to have a good time! Yesterday afternoon I happened to look out the window and saw a large crowd gathering in front of the office here at […]

About this time every year I get a report from WordPress on how this blog performed in the past twelve months, and this year’s report came in yesterday. The numbers are very nice. In fact, a note with the report said that this is one of the top read travel blogs published on a daily […]

Where does the time go? Half the year is behind us already and I’m still dating things 2013. And, this our last day in Elkhart. Tomorrow we’re heading to the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails preserve in Batesville, Indiana. We’ve been here over two months and it seems like it’s been just a couple of weeks. […]

Never Enough Hours

It seems like there are never enough hours in a day to accomplish everything I want to do. Yesterday was a good example. We started the day visiting with Tiffany, who comes out to the motorhome every morning for coffee with Terry. It was Tiffany’s birthday, so I had to tease her about getting older, […]
