The internet is a powerful tool that has changed the world in more ways than I can count. From the comfort of our RVs, we can log onto the World Wide Web from wherever we may be parked and communicate with our family and friends, read the news, do our shopping, pay our bills, and […]

Anybody familiar with writers and the writing process knows that while having a good imagination helps, we don’t have to search hard for things to write about. Usually all we have to do is observe and listen. And trust me, truth really is stranger than fiction! Comedian Bill Engvall has made a career out of […]

More rain had been predicted for yesterday, but while we had heavy cloud cover for much of the day, it stayed dry. Or at least as dry as it can be when the humidity is 94%. I’m not making that up folks, you can almost reach out and touch the moisture in the air. I’m […]

One of the things we love about Elkhart Campground is that everybody we know seems to pass through here eventually. And lately, we’ve had lots of friends stopping by to visit. Monday, Charlie and Ruth Babcock, from Sterling Heights, Michigan, were passing through town on their Harley Davidson motorcycle, and came by to say hello. […]

Thank you to the many blog readers who e-mailed asking if Terry and I were okay when yesterday’s blog didn’t get posted at the usual time. We are fine, we were parked at the Bad River Lodge and Casino in Odanah, Wisconsin, with no cell phone or Verizon air card signal. We were pretty tired […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at the Escapees Park of the Sierras, and this is one area that is very high on our list of places to come back to. We had hoped to do some exploring up along Highway 49 in the Gold Rush country while we were here, but we just ran […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

When we’re not busy traveling in our RV or writing about the RV lifestyle, I enjoy surfing the web and reading the many blogs and websites about RVing that are out there. Even after eleven years on the road, I manage to learn something new every day from what other RVers are writing about.  Today […]

Yesterday morning we left the Yuma County Fairgrounds, our home for the last several weeks, and drove 85 miles north on U.S. Highway 95 to Quartzsite, with Greg and Jan White following us in their American Eagle. They had never been to this part of Arizona, so I played tour guide on the handheld radio, […]

There is an ongoing thread on the Escapees Forum about the fact that Flying J truck stops are now charging RVers $5 to dump their holding tanks. Some of the people who have commented about Flying J’s new policy, as well as some who have written to me about it, are really ticked off, calling […]
