After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we needed to run into New Smyrna Beach to get the registrations renewed on our vehicles, three blog readers left comments or sent me emails asking why I didn’t just do it online, which would be quicker and more convenient. When we changed our official domicile from […]

That about sums it up for us right now. When the heck did moving become such a hard job? I mean, I know it was never easy, but this time around really seems to be kicking our butts. We ache in places where we didn’t even have places a week ago. We took a break […]

We were up by 7 AM yesterday, getting ready to hit the road. I had the water and sewer disconnected and Terry had the inside of the motorhome pretty much ready to roll when Travis and Geli got there about 8:30 to see us off. Goodbyes are always the hardest part of the RV lifestyle […]

By working pretty much nonstop except to sleep, Terry finished proofing and editing Big Lake Brewpub yesterday afternoon. I was busy making corrections as she did, and had them finished and sent it off to my second proofreader yesterday evening. Now she’ll do her thing and get it back to me and I’ll make those […]

No, not that crazy shopping day that happens when everybody should be home sleeping off their Thanksgiving dinner, I’m talking about my new book Black Friday, which I finished yesterday and Miss Terry is busily proofing. When she is finished with that it will go to my next proofreader, and with any luck at all […]

No, not the motorhome, although it’s in dire need of a bath. Unfortunately, none of the RV parks here on the Oregon coast where we have been staying allow you to wash your rig on site, and none of them have a mobile washing outfit that comes in. And I have not found a Blue […]

Frugal Vs Cheap

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]

Congratulations to Virg Chomic, this week’s winner of an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake, the third book in my Big Lake mystery series! We had 142 entries this week, and stay tuned because you may be next week’s lucky winner. The wind blew hard all Saturday night and Sunday morning, and when I […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

Quick Road Trip

I keep hoping that now that I have stopped using the Fluorouracil cream on my face things will start to get back to normal. And it is, but very slowly. At this point I just look like I have a really, really bad sunburn. The pain has eased up a lot, but due to my […]
