I heard from someone yesterday who had some questions about the Winnebago motorhome we have for sale. She said she had looked at all of the photos we have posted of it, including the upgrades we have done, and her concern was that those upgrades may have lowered the value of the motorhome. She said […]

The first order of business yesterday morning was to call the VA hospital in Tucson to see when I can get in for a follow-up to my hospital stay here in Temecula, California. It being a holiday week, I didn’t think they’d be able to do anything for me very quickly. But after I spoke […]

I have had several e-mail and online discussions with folks recently about what is the best RV for their needs. I do a 90 minute seminar at RV shows and rallies called How To Be A Smart RV Shopper. It’s never enough time to cover all of the things that a lot of buyers never […]

Terry still wasn’t feeling back to normal yesterday, so instead of flying kites again we ran a few errands in town, stopped at the farmers market, and then came home. So for today’s blog, I thought I would share some of the questions I have received lately and my answers. Q. Do you guys ever […]

Yesterday was a busy day doing some electrical upgrades in our motorhome. When we installed our Samsung residential refrigerator back in December I knew it would not work well with the existing modified sine wave inverter that came from the factory in our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage. The refrigerator requires a “cleaner” pure sine wave. Since […]

With our month at Pleasant Lake RV Resort in Bradenton finished, yesterday it was time to hit the road. We were up by 7:30 and puttered around the motorhome for a little bit before getting things ready to go. Whenever we’re going to be traveling, Terry puts the passenger and driver’s seats in the proper […]

We had planned to leave Morehead City today and continue our southward journey, but a nasty storm system tracking through the country is bringing lots of wind and rain to this region of the coast, so we’re going to stay here until it passes through. It’s part of that flexibility that all fulltime RVers have […]

We’re In The Money!

We had a nice surprise when I logged into our bank account yesterday – Terry’s first Social Security payment was there. We didn’t expect it until the end of the month, but we’re sure not complaining. I’m not sure what she plans to do with her newfound wealth. Maybe a couple of trips to the […]

It’s been a while since I did a blog about oddball RVs and some folks have asked if I had any new ones to share. As a matter of fact, I do! Here are several that readers have sent me or I’ve found online. We’ll start with a real oldie, an expanding RV from 1934, […]

We have another birthday to celebrate this week. Granddaughter Destiny turns seven today. I know I used this picture just a few days ago, but it’s my favorite one of her. I just love that expression on her face. She’s always coming up with something to say that blows me away. Several people have asked […]
