Note: Because this is a topic that comes up often, I thought I would brush off and repost this blog from March, 2013. I have been thinking about living and traveling in an RV and how different the RV lifestyle can be among different fulltimers and snowbirds. We know many RVers who enjoy seeking out […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we didn’t plan on evacuating our home here on the Florida coast unless a real biggie of a hurricane is headed our way, I was surprised by the fact that I got not one, not two, not even four, but five emails from people yesterday who are […]

When I was a youngster I had a couple of uncles who were volunteer firemen. Sometimes we would go down to the fire station and they would let me put on a big fireman’s helmet and climb on the fire trucks, but that was all I needed of that. I had a cousin who was […]

I get a lot of questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, writing and self-publishing, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all of them individually, sometimes I also share some here. Q. At one of your rallies in Ohio there […]

I decided we needed a play day yesterday so we drove out to the Volusia County Fairgrounds to check out the gun show. Back in the day, I used to go to a lot of gun shows, and I even put my own on for a while. It’s been quite some time since I’ve gone […]

Yeah, that blog title got your attention, didn’t it? I know it sounds pretty harsh, but unfortunately, it’s true. Everybody’s kids are going to die. Yours and mine, and everybody in the world’s kids. Just like the rest of us. But let me explain where I’m going with all of this. I was in an […]

On the picturesque Maine coast there is a wild landscape where ocean crashes onto rocky shoreline. A place where visitors can hike miles of scenic trails, explore tide pools, visit small town resorts, book an expedition on a whale watching trip, ride bicycles through miles of visual delights, and paddle sea kayaks to their hearts’ […]

One year ago today we were scrambling, trying to find a flight on a holiday weekend to take us to Arizona, where my daughter Tiffany had collapsed and gone into full code cardiac arrest. The paramedics got her heart started again and transported her to the hospital, where she coded again. They were able to […]

We love exploring America’s back roads because you never know what hidden gem, lost in history, you’re going to find. At the intersection of State Routes 3 and 14 near Gloucester, Virginia, I spotted this cannon and the sign for Fort Nonsense Historical Park. Really? A fort named Nonsense? How could we not stop?
