After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said that we would be leaving Bay View RV Resort in Rockport a day early because we weren’t happy with the poor condition of the campground, the lack of Verizon service, and the noise from the nearby pile driving machine, somebody commented to me that they couldn’t believe […]

Even with the noise of the traffic passing overhead on the bridge in Lake Charles and the occasional vehicle coming or going through the parking lot, we still slept well boondocking at the Isle of Capri casino. Since we only had about 140 miles to go to reach our destination, we were in no rush […]

A Foggy Day On I-10

It rained again Saturday night and it was still raining when we got up at 7:30 yesterday morning. Why must I keep getting up so early if it’s too ugly to do anything? What’s up with that? Fortunately, by 9 a.m. the rain had stopped and all we had was a heavy overcast. We took […]

Warm Is Good!

We could have spent weeks exploring Savannah, but we were expected in Florida, so about 11 a.m. yesterday morning we left Hardeeville RV Park, just across the state line in South Carolina, and hit the road for our final run to Titusville. When we pulled onto Interstate 95, I told Miss Terry that I didn’t […]

So Much To See And Do

If anybody ever tells you that North Dakota is dull and boring, you can bet they have never been there! There is so much to see and do here that it would take an entire year just to get to it all, if you hurried! We awoke to wind yesterday, but at least it had […]

A Four Hour Day

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. […]

Ten Year Rule

After reading my blog The View Is The Same, from a couple of days ago, a reader sent me an e-mail expressing her concerns that she might be turned away from a lot of campgrounds that have a rule banning any RVs older than ten years. This is a topic that comes up from time […]

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 […]

Mornings Are Overrated

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]

We’re leaving Show Low this morning, and if all goes well, it should be a short driving day. We’re only going to Williams, a distance of about 175 miles. That’s an easy day of RV travel. Even with a stop at the Flying J in Winslow for fuel, we should only be on the road […]
