Where Will You Roost?

With all the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma this year, a lot of RV snowbirds who had planned to winter in the Florida Keys or on the Texas Gulf Coast are finding themselves looking for someplace else to go. I’ve received a number of requests for suggestions on alternative snowbird roosts. The Florida […]

A few years ago we spent a few days at the Escapees Dreamcatcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico, and one Sunday morning when I went up to the office to check out so we could go on to Arizona, everybody was amazed that we’d travel on Super Bowl Sunday. I probably further advanced their […]

A Tailwind? No Way!

We left the Escapees Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico and experienced that most rare of natural phenomena, a tailwind. Yeah, I know, I thought they were a myth myself, one of those made up things like leprechauns and wood nymphs, and I was so surprised that I almost fell off my unicorn. […]

Stupor Bowl Sunday

Am I the only man in America who didn’t know who was playing in the Stupor Bowl yesterday, and didn’t care? I have never been into organized sports, and try as I might (okay, I never really have tried), I just can’t get enthused about them. There really is more to life than watching a […]

I’m Finally Warm!

Today is officially the last day I’m waking up early for a long time! We fell into this nasty habit over a week ago, and every morning we have been getting up much too early. As Deputy Barney Fife used to say in the old Andy Griffith television show, “It’s time to nip it! Nip […]

Ups And Downs

Yesterday was one of those days that had all kinds of ups and downs. It started out bad, got good, then got frustrating, then got even more frustrating, got good for a little while, got bad again, and still ended up good. Huh? Now what the heck is Nick talking about? Trust me, I can […]

We were up bright and early again yesterday morning, a nasty habit we’re going to have to work hard to break. The inch of snow that had been predicted did not show up, and we were both relieved to see that. But it was still darned cold, and Terry flipped the engine heater on to […]

I think I’m probably one of the few men I know who wasn’t parked in front of the television yesterday, eating junk food and watching the Super Bowl. While I do love junk food, football just doesn’t do a thing for me. Just because I’m built like a football doesn’t mean I have to like […]

For a week or so now, we have been up early every morning, and that’s a habit we really need to break. It’s ruining my bad reputation.  We left the Escapees Dreamcatcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico a little after 9 a.m. and drove west on Interstate 10 to Lordsburg, where we stopped at […]

We said a reluctant goodbye to Mike Steffen and left his place in Salt Flat, Texas a little after 9 a.m. yesterday morning, headed west on U.S. Highway 180. It’s always good to see our friends, and always hard to leave. But, the good thing about the RV lifestyle is that we can always go […]
