After driving 460 miles Tuesday, from Elkhart to Muskegon, Michigan, on to Traverse City to visit my cousin in the hospital there, and then back to Muskegon, we had just enough energy left to grab a bite to eat and watch a little TV, before crashing in Rocky and Berni Frees’ spare bedroom.

Yesterday morning we slept in, catching up from the 1350 long miles we have covered since we left Bremerton, Washington on Monday. When we finally did get up, we spent an hour or so checking e-mail and reading a couple of our favorite blogs. It was good to just play lazy and not have to […]

That lady just never stops! I’m […]

In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how my buddy Greg White wouldn’t take me to Dairy Queen for my requisite sweet treat, and I have to say that I was rather dismayed when one reader made a post to Greg’s blog, congratulating him for holding fast, and even suggesting he feed me a rice cake! […]

After reading yesterday’s blog, RVing’s Top 10, my friend Connie Bradish suggested maybe we needed a Bottom 10 list, and suggested, in no particular order: 1. A major dumping event, like the hose comes off and it’s all over. 2. A tire blowout, especially if it’s the right front tire. 3. Being sunk up to […]
