Yesterday was an easy traveling day for us, just four hours. We hardly had time to get our Cummins diesel engine warmed up! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I wasn’t sure where we were headed, either to the Lake Minden NACO campground a little north of Sacramento, or the Russian River NACO, near Cloverdale. […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at the Escapees Park of the Sierras, and this is one area that is very high on our list of places to come back to. We had hoped to do some exploring up along Highway 49 in the Gold Rush country while we were here, but we just ran […]

Today is our last day here at the Escapees Park of the Sierras, and we’ve had a wonderful time playing tourist in a part of California that we’ve never seen before, visiting with some old friends here at the campground, and checking out the local restaurants. In the two weeks we’ve been here, we’ve been […]

Anybody who knows me, knows what a wonderful friend I am, and that I will do whatever it takes to help my fellow man, no matter how much it inconveniences me. Of course, it’s even better if I benefit from my own selflessness. I’ve been working hard lately keeping my buddy Greg White out of […]

We never know where our next adventure is going to come from, but we always seem to find them. And occasionally, they find us! The other day, we were visiting with our friends Rick and Laurie Phillips, whom we first met when we all were new fulltimers, a lot of years ago. Rick and Laurie […]

I was minding my own business, all snug and cozy in my bed yesterday morning, when my phone rang, at 6:30 a.m. A call that early can mean only one of five things; it’s bad news, it’s a friend who is about to lose that status, it’s a wrong number, it’s somebody calling to sell […]

Albert Hammond Lied

You may not know who Albert Hammond is, but if you ever meet him, don’t believe a word he says. The man is a liar! No, Mr. Hammond is not an RV salesman, nor is he peddling campground memberships. Albert Hammond is a British singer/songwriter perhaps best known for his 1972 hit It Never Rains […]

I Need An Intervention

I need an intervention. Yesterday morning I was up by 7 a.m. for the third time in a week. This nonsense has to stop! With the power still out on our side of the Thousand Trails campground, we planned to leave Las Vegas, but first I wanted to swing by the Speedco and get the […]
