My Turn

Terry was feeling back to normal by yesterday and woke up hungry, which is a good thing, because it was my turn. Whatever nasty bug hit her turned around and got me and I don’t think I’ve ever felt so sick in my life. I spent the day commuting between the bathroom and the couch […]

A Disney Day

You would have thought you were in a Disney movie if you visited our motorhome yesterday. We had to be up before 7 a.m. to pick up my cousin Beverly so we could drive from the far southeast side of Tucson to the far northwest for doctor appointments Terry and Beverly had, starting at 9:30. […]

The View Is The Same

In a thread on the Escapees forum, a woman shares her excitement about her recent motorhome purchase, and acknowledges that while the 1986 Toyota Conquest is small (21 feet), it fits her needs for now. I posted a reply to her thread, and told her that the neat thing about her little RV is that […]

There is a thread on the Escapees forum that every RVer needs to read before they ever consider buying a campground membership. It can save you a lot of money and aggravation. This is not the first time I have heard complaints about Timber Lodge RV Resort, and a website called the Ripoff Report shows […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

There is a phenomenon that takes place this time of year that has mystified me ever since we became fulltime RVers over ten years ago, and that is getting income taxes filed. No, I understand the process. What confuses me is why people would leave a place like sunny Arizona and return to cold states […]

I’ve had a few e-mails from readers who noted that we are currently staying at a Thousand Trails preserve and wanted to know if I felt that  Thousand Trails membership was a good investment. As I have said many times before, like anything, a campground membership can be a good investment if you use it […]

After spending the night at the Flying J in Midway, Florida, we had an easy run west to the Alabama state line, and pulled into the Escapees Rainbow Plantation RV Park in Summerdale about noon yesterday. I have always said that coming into an Escapees park is like a homecoming, because there is always somebody […]

Rainy Days

It seems like we had more rain and cold weather this past summer than we did sunshine. October hasn’t changed that. While we were in Celina we had several rainy days, and though we got a break while we drove back to Elkhart Thursday, it started raining just about the time we finished getting set […]
