Looking Back At 2015

It’s over already? Wow, that was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2015 like for us? We started the year in Florida at the Three Flags RV Resort in Wildwood, one of our favorite campgrounds in the Thousand […]

I was sniveling because it was down in the upper 30s at night on the Central Coast, so I left and went to a place where it was even colder! What’s wrong with this picture? Yesterday morning we said our farewells to our friends Tom and Barbara Westerfield and pulled out of the Atascadero, California […]

I’m not a big fan of California. It’s too crowded, too expensive, and just not my cup of tea. But one big exception is the Central Coast. If I had to live in California, it would be here. The other day I told you about our visit to Morro Bay. We spent yesterday in another […]

Since we didn’t have any plans or anything on our calendar, we treated ourselves by sleeping in yesterday morning. The fact that it got down into the 30s overnight was added incentive to stay snuggled under the covers once we woke up. Like we needed an incentive. Not! Eventually we did get up, and after […]

I Must Be Crazy

Seriously, I know a lot of you have suspected it for a long time, and now I’m beginning to wonder, too. We left the beautiful Oregon coast because it was getting cold, with temperatures down into the 40s at night. And where did we end up? On California’s Central Coast, where it was in the […]

The Dead Zone

We really like the Elks lodge campground here in Florence, Oregon. The sites are roomy, the place is very clean, the power is good, and everybody is friendly. But it’s an internet dead zone. The Verizon signal on our cell phones and air card are very, very flakey, and getting online is really difficult. Staying […]

Moving Day

Our two weeks at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve is over and today is moving day for us. I can’t say that we’re sad to be leaving, and I doubt we’ll return to this campground again anytime soon. The campground is heavily treed, which makes satellite TV reception iffy at best and only has […]

Kite Up, Nick Down

Do you remember a while back when I wrote that this campground was a circus, with RVs coming and going in every direction? Well, I think they added a third ring for the holiday weekend. I don’t think you could shoehorn a roller skate in here at this point, but I still see rigs lined […]

It’s A Circus

It’s been a circus here at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve in Florence, Oregon this weekend. RVs have been going every direction on the narrow roads, meeting head on and having to back up, and trying to shoehorn large rigs into small, tight sites. So far nobody seems to have lost their temper and […]

Eureka To Brookings

We had a short trip in terms of miles yesterday, but it wasn’t a fast one. We left the Elks lodge campground in Eureka, California, stopped for fuel, and then took U.S. Highway 101 north for 115 miles. As it is through much of northern California, some parts of the highway are divided four lane […]
