When we had dinner with Charles and Chris Yust Friday evening we had discussed going to New Smyrna Beach yesterday. They have not been there, and there were three or four properties that we wanted to look at. So we were up early yesterday morning but the weather didn’t look too good. I messaged a […]

Just Don’t Have One!

Today’s blog is going to start with a bit of a rant and it’s not about a pleasant subject, so you may want to scroll down or skip today’s post. I got an e-mail from some folks who were upset about an incident that did not have to happen and just pisses me off. They […]

For years I have had a reputation for bringing bad weather with me everywhere I go. A community could be in a year-long drought, but about the time I show up they get torrential rains. Folks can be planting their gardens on a sunny spring day when I pull into a campground, and the next […]

A Cooling Trend

It’s been in the mid-80s here in central Florida for the last couple of weeks, which the weatherman has been calling unseasonably warm. But a cold front is supposed to be coming in this weekend and they are predicting temperatures to fall into the mid-to-upper 70s by the first of the week. That will be […]

Yesterday was moving day for us, but it was a short trip of about 45 miles to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve. We were up early and it didn’t take us all that long to get ready. We pulled out of Three Flags RV Resort about 9:25 and drove a couple of miles into Wildwood, […]

Making New Friends

It’s always fun to meet our readers and make new friends, and that’s just what we got to do yesterday. Sometime in the early afternoon there was a knock on our motorhome’s door and I opened it to find Terry and Diane Pyatt standing there. They introduced themselves and Terry said he is a devoted […]

We are not ready to stop traveling yet, and probably never will be, as long as our health allows. But after almost 17 years of fulltime RVing we are slowing down. We like being at Point A and Point B and Point C, but we find we are not enjoying the trips between those places […]

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is the many wonderful friends we have made over the years as we have roamed America’s highways and back roads. And reconnecting with them is always a lot of fun. Yesterday afternoon we got to do just that when we met our friends Stu and Donna […]

Shortest Move Ever

I’m not quite over my cold yet but I think I have¬†pretty much the worst of it behind me, except for a nagging cough that doesn’t want to let go. But Terry’s a couple of days behind me in the cycle and feeling crappy. I spent most of yesterday working on the new issue of […]

Crud Times Two

Some men give their ladies flowers or chocolates or jewelry for Valentine’s Day. I’m a little more creative than that. I had a guy come to the campground and wash our motorhome! But then I got to thinking that Miss Terry deserved more than that for everything she does for me on a daily basis. […]
