Located a short drive south of Abilene, Texas, Buffalo Gap Historic Village allows visitors to step back in time to the early days of the Lone Star State. Over a dozen historic buildings and an amazing collection of artifacts and displays tell the story of life in Texas between 1875 and 1925. The area takes […]

I hear from a lot of new and wannabe RVers who are single and wondering how well they will fit into the RV lifestyle. Some are worried that they will be a third wheel alone among a community of traveling couples. Not at all! I don’t think you could find any more accepting and welcoming […]

The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of […]

It’s no secret that I love books, both reading and writing them. Even with the wealth of knowledge available on the internet, there are still a lot of great RVing books that should be on your bookshelf, or in Kindle. And even with a gazillion apps for RVers, there are times when you can’t get […]

Except for a quick trip to the dumpster I haven’t left the motorhome. Actually, I pretty much haven’t left my desk. But the good news is that I’ve only got a little over three pages left to go on the new issue of the paper. That trip to the dumpster was enough. There are a […]

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, […]
