Miss Terry really likes swap meets and flea markets, and anytime we go to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground in Bushnell, Florida we make it a point of going to the big Webster Flea Market. We can spend hours looking at all the goodies folks have for sale, from yard sale stuff to antiques, junk, […]

I’ve had several job titles in my life. Soldier, cop, entrepreneur, journalist, newspaper publisher, author, public speaker, and a couple I choose to forget. But I think that at 63 years of age, I have finally found my calling. I’m going to become a remittance man. For those of you not familiar with the term, […]

We are Floridians!

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

A Good Day On the Road

Thunderstorms were predicted for Baldwin County, Alabama yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to be on the road and well ahead of them before they arrived. So we left the Escapees Rainbow Plantation co-op a few minutes after 9 AM, headed for Florida. And it was a good day on the road. We had just under […]

Yesterday was a busy day for us though we never left the motorhome. Which was fine because it was a rainy day and not really good for playing tourist anyway. I worked on book projects most of the day and well into the evening. The first order of business was uploading Big Lake Scandal, my […]

RVs are pulling into Elkhart Campground one after another as weekend warriors arrive to kick off the season. For the next three months or so every campground and RV park in the country will be full of campers, kids, barking dogs and smoky campfires. You gotta love summer, right? Hey, it’s all part of the […]

Yesterday I wrote about how much we love the fulltime RV lifestyle, but it’s not for everybody and we have seen a lot of fulltimers come and go over the years. Some dropped out because once they were out on the road away from family and friends they realized that it just wasn’t for them, […]

Bye Bye Hitch Itch!

We’re scratching our hitch itch, and it sure feels good! We’ve enjoyed the almost four months we’ve spent in Florida, but too much of it was spent sitting still, either at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, or at the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground. Both are nice places, but I tend to get bored seeing the […]

A Move And A Leak

Yesterday morning we were up early and getting ready to hit the road. We had a short drive, less than 50 miles back to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground, but since the Thousand Trails is so busy this time of year, and there are so many people wanting to get into the few 50 amp […]

Whether you’re Christian, Jewish, Hindu, agnostic or atheist, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, or whatever else gets the message across that I hope you have a wonderful day, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. I hope you are in good health, that you’re with people that you love, and that you’re warm and safe. It […]
