 With only a few more days left before we hit the road, it’s time to begin the work of preparing and packing the motorhome for our summer RV travels. Yesterday we moved the RV out of the storage lot and over to the big concrete apron in front of our house. We weren’t sure the […]

An Easy Day

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]

RVing is a wonderful lifestyle, whether you’re a fulltimer, a snowbird, or a weekend warrior. But like anything we do, it takes a little bit of knowledge and some experience before you get it right. I think any RVer who has been doing this for very long and is totally honest will admit to making […]

We Like Buc-ees!

We were up early again yesterday morning, something we’ve done all too much of lately. That’s a habit we have to try really hard to break. It’s starting to get out of hand. After checking morning e-mails, storing the last things away inside the motorhome for traveling, and unhooking our utilities, we were ready to […]

Come to Arizona, they said. It’s the sunbelt, they said. It’s nice and warm in the winter, they said. They lied. Here in Tucson we had more rain Thursday night, and again off and on most of yesterday. And it was still darned cold. Here is a picture a blog reader sent me of the […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we had one of the shortest moves ever in our sixteen years as fulltime RVers, just 7 1/2 miles. But oh what a difference that short distance made! Since we didn’t have far to go we didn’t get up until 8:30 a.m., which is later than usual for us on a traveling day. Then […]

A Trip From Hell

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we only had a short 45 mile drive from the Hershey Thousand Trails to the Gettysburg Farm RV Resort near Dover, Pennsylvania. Easy peasy. Yeah, right. It was raining when we woke up and continued while I had my Corn Pops, checked e-mail, and answered those that needed immediate […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

Two Lanes To Tucson

For some reason that we have never been able to figure out, but that many other RVers say happens to them as well, we seldom sleep well the night before we travel. Even if it’s a relatively short trip like our 122 mile drive from Apache Junction to Tucson yesterday. We turned in earlier than […]

On To Billings

After a quick run to the post office in Gillette yesterday we returned to the Cam-Plex, hooked our Ford Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and made ready to get out of Dodge… err Gillette. But first we had to have the requisite goodbye hugs from Greg and Jan, who were also hitting the […]
