Thank you to all of you who sent emails, posted blog comments or on Facebook wishing us well, offering to come to our assistance if necessary, and praying for our safety after my blog about our breakdown on Sunday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the last of our troubles on the Trip From Hell, but we are […]

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 […]

It Was A Good Day

We left Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction about 10:30 yesterday morning and had an easy run on two lane roads through Florence and Catalina, arriving at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park in Tucson a little before 1 p.m. We expected to have to settle for a 30 amp site, but lucked out […]

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 […]

Yesterday Terry and I began our fifteenth year of fulltime RVing. That’s a lot of years and a lot of miles. In those years we’ve been from coast to coast and border to border, and just about everywhere in between. Yet, we feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface of all there is to see […]

Well, Yes And No

After a quick run to the post office to send out some orders, we left the Las Vegas, New Mexico Elks lodge about 9:30 yesterday morning and headed north on Interstate 25 toward Colorado. Except for a few places where the pavement had some sudden dips in it, we had a nice ride through rolling […]

To just a precious few. Yes, it won’t be long until our visit here in our old hometown is over and we’ll be heading down the road again. It’s always bittersweet – we love visiting my daughter and her family, but we love our life on the road and could never be happy living here […]

We didn’t want to announce it until after I finished up with my medical appointments at the VA hospital here in Tucson, just in case there were any unpleasant surprises waiting for me. But it looks like I’ll live another year at least, so we’re going to be at the Escapees Club’s Escapade RV rally […]

A Short Drive Pays Off

We really wanted to be away from where we were Wednesday night, so yesterday morning we were up bright and early and on the road before 9 AM. We had an appointment for Monday morning at Spartan Chassis in Charlotte, Michigan and I knew there were a couple of fairgrounds and an Elks lodge with […]

The wind was blowing terribly all night Thursday, and by Friday morning it was really rocking our motorhome. But that didn’t stop the campground host from rapping on our door bright and early to tell us that we had to leave because the campground was completely rented. I looked around, saw the same empty spaces […]
