Back Home Again

We left Santa Fe RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona about 10 yesterday morning for the 144 mile trip to our old hometown of Show Low, in the White Mountains. But the difference between the two places would make you think you were in different parts of the country. We started out in the desert, […]

Friends And Family

No, I’m not about to launch into a Verizon commercial, but we’ve been spending a lot of time with our friends and family here in the Apache Junction area. Unfortunately, though we are trying to get to everybody we can, there just are not enough hours in the day and we have had to say […]

The Curse Is Broken

We put in a long day of driving yesterday but it was worth it to get out of the gray and gloomy Pacific Northwest. We were beginning to grow moss on our webbed toes. After filling our diesel tank at the Shell station in Sutherlin, at $3.79 a gallon, we got on Interstate 5 and […]

Yesterday was a day for bad roads and big waves. Lots of both. We left the Seaside RV Resort about 10:30, stopped for fuel, and then started south on U.S. Highway 101. It was 118 miles to the Elks lodge in Newport, but it was a slow 118 miles. Part of the way was along […]

Dead To The World

After our unplanned marathon driving session Tuesday, Terry and I were exhausted and as soon as I got yesterday’s blog posted (which took forever on our terrible internet connection here) we went to bed. The minute our heads hit the pillow we were dead to the world, and we stayed that way until the jerks […]

A Denver Day

Yesterday we had a very busy day playing tourist in downtown Denver. So busy that by the time we got back to our motorhome at the Westminster Elks lodge campground in the late afternoon, I promptly laid down on the couch and took a nap! We wanted to tour the U.S. Mint, but as it […]

I Googled It!

I’m not a smart guy, but that’s okay, because I know a lot of smart guys I can call when I have a problem, and that’s even better! It saves room in my brain for important stuff like where the best pizza and Chinese buffet are in town. Of course, when you bother people with […]

Well, Yes And No

After a quick run to the post office to send out some orders, we left the Las Vegas, New Mexico Elks lodge about 9:30 yesterday morning and headed north on Interstate 25 toward Colorado. Except for a few places where the pavement had some sudden dips in it, we had a nice ride through rolling […]

Thank You Fleetwood

Those of you who have been following our saga all along may remember the Motorhome From Hell, our first RV, which was a Fleetwood lemon. It literally fell apart driving down the highway and we spent the first eighteen months of our fulltime adventure running from dealer to dealer and even to the factory, trying […]

Another Windy Day

Yesterday was another windy day here in New Mexico. Just like the windy days we had in Tucson a month ago and in Show Low the last two weeks. Welcome to Spring in the Southwest. Except for going out to dump our gray tank, because I had forgotten to open the valve when we arrived […]
