Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]

Most people who know me well will tell you that I have a few decent qualities including a good sense of humor, a bit of intelligence, and I’ve even been accused of generosity a time or two. However, if they were honest, they would also tell you that patience is not one of my virtues. […]

Playing Catch Up

I had hoped to get some work done in my new book yesterday but it wasn’t in the cards. Instead, I spent most of the day playing catch up on the emails and messages and other things that I had put off while Travis and Geli were here. I must have had a dozen emails […]

I get well over 100 emails a day, and sometimes twice that many. A lot of them are spam that somehow makes it through all of my spam filters, a certain amount are forwards and junk like that that I don’t even bother opening, but there also always some from readers wanting to share their […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a couple who are devastated because the used Class A motorhome they recently purchased is turning out to be a lemon. And while I feel sorry for them, their story is not unique. They said they bought the rig, a 2012, from what they thought was a reputable dealer. […]

A Good Day On the Road

Thunderstorms were predicted for Baldwin County, Alabama yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to be on the road and well ahead of them before they arrived. So we left the Escapees Rainbow Plantation co-op a few minutes after 9 AM, headed for Florida. And it was a good day on the road. We had just under […]

I had another rough night Monday night, so when we got out of bed at 7:30 yesterday morning I wasn’t ready to start the day. But we had to get some miles put behind us, so I only sniveled a little bit as I got dressed and we started getting ready to hit the road. […]

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 […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a new RVer who wrote that he is terrified to dump his RV’s black tank for the first time. “It feels like holding a live hand grenade in my hand, waiting for it to explode,” he said. “What if the hose comes loose from where it connects to the […]

Longtime blog readers know that I have not been a big fan of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas RV mecca that is home to thousands of Winter Texans. But I have to admit, our stay here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission has me rethinking my previous position on the place. We came […]
