Yesterday was another rainy day but we didn’t mind because we didn’t have plans to do anything anyway. I was busy writing and got another 5,200 words done in my new book. I’m just a few words shy of 56,000 total and I’m hoping to wrap this one up and have it ready to go […]

Happy Birthday Greg!

Today is my buddy Greg White’s 67th birthday, if my high school math still works. But that’s only a number. In reality Greg is just 30, plus shipping and handling. Okay, a LOT of shipping and handling! I tease Greg all the time but that’s only because he’s the guy comedian Jeff Foxworthy is talking […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a new RVer who wrote that he is terrified to dump his RV’s black tank for the first time. “It feels like holding a live hand grenade in my hand, waiting for it to explode,” he said. “What if the hose comes loose from where it connects to the […]

Most RVers are really nice people but they don’t give you a personality test before they let you buy one of these things, and like every aspect of life, there are a few snobs out there, as well as clods and outright idiots. I’m rather well known in the RV world because of the Gypsy […]

Except for a quick trip to the dumpster I haven’t left the motorhome. Actually, I pretty much haven’t left my desk. But the good news is that I’ve only got a little over three pages left to go on the new issue of the paper. That trip to the dumpster was enough. There are a […]

Where we’re parked at the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails our rooftop satellite dish can’t completely clear the tree line, so we’re only getting a few channels, and then yesterday a strong storm came through and knocked out the few we were getting. But it could be worse! Consider these folks. Did he not see the […]

The great thing about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors or the neighborhood, you can leave. Or sometimes just because hitch itch sets in and you want a new view out your windows. We love Elkhart Campground, but after a couple of months there we were ready for a change […]

Boom, Bang, and Kapow!

For the last few days it sounded like we were living in a war zone as people were popping off fireworks all over the place at every hour of the day and night. There is a nice neighborhood across from Elkhart Campground that backs up to Simonton Lake and I think every man, woman and […]

Happy birthday America. Yes, we have our problems, and there are a lot of things that need changing, but isn’t it wonderful to live in a country where we can complain about the government out loud and not worry about storm troopers kicking in our door late at night? I’ve been around the world and […]

Fun In Muskegon

We had a wonderful time visiting Berni and Rocky in Muskegon, Michigan, a town where there is so much to see and do that you would have to work hard to be bored. We never have enough time to even scratch the surface when we visit. The weekly Farmers Market is a good place to […]
