I must have been a very good boy this year because Santa came to our house early. And I needed a really big stocking for my Christmas present. Like a garage-sized stocking! I mentioned a while back that I was thinking about buying myself a new Mustang. I’ve had a lot of cars in my […]

After reading yesterday’s blog Apples And Oranges, a reader wanted to know why we would take our new van all the way to Arizona and put all of those miles on it instead of driving our Ford Explorer. He said when he buys a new vehicle he does everything he can to keep the miles […]

My cousin Berni and her husband Rocky have been visiting us from Muskegon, Michigan for a few days, and we have had a good time showing them some of the local attractions. The other day we took them to the Sugar Mill Ruins in nearby New Smyrna Beach. These ruins date back to the early […]

Please watch where you’re walking around us for a while, will you? Because mine and Miss Terry’s butts are dragging and I wouldn’t want you to step on them. With my dad’s work when I was a kid, and later my time in the military and living in different places around the country afterward, I […]

Today’s blog is going to be more show than tell because I’ve got some really neat old RVs to show you today!

Between uncooperative weather, catching up on chores around the motorhome, and being busy with writing projects, it been so long since we’ve been flying that I was going through withdrawals. We tried Thursday afternoon, but when we got down to the beach about 4 o’clock, the wind was blowing so hard that it wouldn’t have […]

Before we started fulltiming I was into classic cars and had several. One was a beautiful customized 1958 Chevy pickup that had won trophies in a lot of car shows. I wanted to put new tires on it and took it to Big O and they told me it would be about three hours. So […]

It was cold yesterday. Maybe not the brutal cold folks in the Midwest are experiencing, but still damn cold. About noon I walked down to the dumpster to throw away some trash and the cold wind cut right through me. I sure was glad to get back inside our nice warm motorhome. I guess I […]

Or even dark of night can keep us from finding funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and we’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. I posted a blog with some of our favorites a couple of years ago that was well received, and ever since, readers […]

I planned to get some writing done yesterday, but as it turned out, it was a day devoted to three of my favorite things, old friends, old cars, and pizza. Which means it was a great day! It rained hard all night and we slept in yesterday morning, and soon after we woke up our […]
