Blow Me Away

Friday morning it was the sound of race cars going through their paces at the nearby track that woke us up here at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park in Tucson, Arizona. Yesterday morning it was the wind. Actually, it woke us up several times during the night as it rocked our motorhome and rattled […]

You Have Been Warned!

High winds and very cold temperatures across the southwest made for a miserable day yesterday. When I went outside to dump our holding tanks in the afternoon, I would have sworn I was in the Arctic, not Arizona. If this crap keeps up much longer, I’m going to launch into an epic sniveling fit that […]

If you’re anywhere near the Oregon coast, put in your awnings, batten down the hatches, and hang on. A big storm is coming in and the weatherman says we can expect lots of rain, and 25 – 35 mile per hour winds with gusts to 45 today. It’s definitely not a day to be outside, […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my son Travis happy birthday. Wow, 37 years! Where did they go? You’re almost an old man now, my son. What does that make me? I love you, Travis. I hope you have a great day. We’re looking forward to seeing you and Geli. On […]

Yesterday was a long day for us but it was worth it. After spending the last six or seven months in Arizona, we’re finally in a place with real grass, trees with leaves, and rivers with water in them! We spent Thursday night at the Elks lodge in Tucumcari, New Mexico and were up by […]

Blowing In The Wind

The wind blew all of Thursday night and most of the day yesterday. It rocked the Winnebago all night long, and when we woke up yesterday morning we could actually see our bedroom slide visibly moving with each strong gust. We’ve been in some bad windstorms over the years, but never anything like that! For […]

Get Off The Road!

I got an e-mail yesterday from a new RVer who was really rattled after an experience he had on Interstate 40 in northern Arizona a couple of days ago. He told me they were on their way to Las Vegas in their new Class A motorhome and encountered very strong winds east of Holbrook. The […]

Gotta Love The Jello

The best part of the fulltime RV lifestyle is that we usually write our plans in Jello so we can change them any time we want or need to. And it happens more often that you might think. We shook up the Jello a while back when we delayed our departure from Florida by a […]

A Windy Trip

After sad goodbyes and lots of hugs with Greg and Jan, we pulled out of Hardeeville RV Park at 10 AM yesterday morning, headed for Florida. The weather report predicted winds picking up in the afternoon, but since we only had a four hour run to St. Augustine we decided to go for it. Within […]

Even though we’re far south of where Hurricane Sandy came ashore, and have had pretty good weather since we’ve been here, it took a turn for the worse yesterday. The wind blew hard most of the day and the temperature dropped quite a bit. I don’t think the high got much over 60° and the […]
