We had a nice surprise when I logged into our bank account yesterday – Terry’s first Social Security payment was there. We didn’t expect it until the end of the month, but we’re sure not complaining. I’m not sure what she plans to do with her newfound wealth. Maybe a couple of trips to the […]

Bob and Gita Patel, owners of Elkhart Campground, love it when a big rally comes to the fairgrounds in Goshen, some 30 miles south of here. Being the largest and best campground in the area, many RVers come here first to hang out for a week or two before a rally starts, and a lot […]

Watching the news of the terrible winter storms and frigid temperatures that so much of the country is experiencing sure makes me grateful that we have wheels under our house and don’t have to deal with any of that. I almost felt guilty for wearing a long sleeve shirt when we went out yesterday, and […]

Congratulations to Marilu Nealy, winner of this week’s drawing for an audiobook of Judy Howard’s COAST TO COAST WITH A CAT AND A GHOST! We had 140 entries in this week’s contest, which is down just a tiny bit, no doubt because a lot of people are busy with holiday shopping and travel. Stay tuned, […]

Anybody who knows me well knows that I have absolutely no business messing around with tools. Not a wrench, not a screwdriver and heaven forbid not a saw! You know those tiny little screwdrivers that come with a couple of miniscule screws that people use to put their eyeglasses back together? We’d be better off […]

We spent yesterday driving along U.S. Highway 90, which parallels the Gulf beaches here in Mississippi. The eye of the Hurricane Katrina came ashore here, back in 2005, and decimated the region. We wanted to see how much damage was still evident, and what had changed in the wake of that disaster. It was an […]

We did a lot of research before we ever left our hometown in Arizona to become fulltime RVers, and one of the things that came out of that research was our decision to join the Passport America discount camping club. Our membership has served us well in our 12+ years on the road. In fact, we […]

We left Eagle’s Landing in Holt, Florida about 10 a.m. yesterday and drove 20 miles west on U.S. Highway 90 to Milton, where we met Larry and Melissa Beahm, and their friends Art and Barbara Johnson, for brunch. If you were at our Eastern Gypsy Gathering in Elkhart last summer, you will remember Larry and […]

Because the office at Rustic Sands Campground was closed when we arrived Friday night, I was up bright and early yesterday morning to get in and pay for our site, and to see if they could recommend a shop to work on our coach. The office was supposed to open at 8 a.m. and I […]

Well, our trip west hasn’t gotten off to a great start so far. In fact, most of yesterday kind of sucked. We were up bright and early, and Miss Terry did an excellent job getting the inside of our motorhome ready to travel, while I dumped our black tank and unhooked the utilities, went inside […]
