I’ll admit that I stole some of these from advice I received back when I was learning to fly or ride a motorcycle, but I think they are just as appropriate to driving an RV. 1) No one has ever hit something at too slow a speed. 2) Always try to keep the number of times […]

No, Santa Claus isn’t coming to town, but the RV gypsies are! We’re so close to the start of our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally that I can see all of those motorhomes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, and B vans coming down the highway! Right now, we have 175 RVs registered, and who knows how many […]

The Arizona Good Sam rally is going on at the Yuma Fairgrounds this week, and yesterday I spent some time visiting with the rally staff and the vendors who are here for the rally. Most of them will be staying over for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally next week, and since a couple were vendors […]

When I was a younger person, I thought I would never get old, and didn’t want to. What fun could that be? Now that I have almost six decades under my belt, I realize just how dumb I was back then. This is absolutely the best time of my life. When I look at the […]

Sometimes it can be very frustrating trying to plan an RV rally. There are a thousand details that have to be handled behind the scenes, like pre-ordering enough donuts for everybody every morning, but not ordering too many and having them go to waste.

Back when we were doing the bus conversion thing, we knew several bus nuts who took their coaches to Mexico to have them painted. We never considered it, because even at bargain Mexican prices, we just didn’t feel comfortable taking our MCI into Mexico. Yes, I know that a lot of RVers, even some of […]

After reading in the blog about the frustrations I was having trying to do research at the Family History Library, Roger Marble sent me some website links to articles on getting the most out of a visit to the Family History Library. I spent a couple of hours Sunday reading those articles, and then getting […]

We had snow here in Show Low, Arizona on several days last week, and on Sunday we got two inches of the nasty stuff. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we plan to go down to Tucson for a week or so, and it immediately warmed up to about 70 degrees yesterday! The weather is […]

The title of today’s blog pretty much sums up how I have felt for the last two days. All the while we were driving north toward Indiana, we were passing RVs going in the other direction. In the past, when we have been the southbound RV and we have spotted rigs going north late in […]

I stole comedian Ron White’s line for this blog, because it is so darned true. Sometimes I wonder how some people manage to get through life without drowning in rainstorms or bashing in their heads walking into walls. I got a long e-mail Letter to the Editor yesterday from a fellow wanting me to help […]
