As history buffs, we have visited all kinds of historical sites in our travels, from Revolutionary War and Civil War battlefields to historic homes, old forts, and all kinds of history museums in every corner of the country. We have walked the Freedom Trail in Boston and visited Paul Revere’s house. We stood on the […]

A blog reader new to the RV lifestyle wrote to me to stay that they have been really disappointed in the campgrounds they have been staying at because the sites are very close together. He said when he thought about RVing, he pictured them being parked along some beautiful lake or river in a quiet […]

For the second day in a row we were up at 7 AM yesterday. What the heck is that all about? We need to nip this in the bud right now! But we had a lot of miles to cover and we wanted to get on the road. We pulled out of Diamond Caverns RV […]

We drove across the bay to spend yesterday playing tourist in Mobile, and if you’re ever in this part of Alabama, you really need to make some time to explore this historic city which was first settled by the French in 1702. But Mobile has also been under British and Spanish rule before Alabama became […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

We were scheduled to leave the Whalers Rest Thousand Trails near Newport, Oregon today, but by Sunday evening I had had all I could take of the cold, the wet, and the dreariness and told Miss Terry to get ready to hit the road Monday morning instead. And wouldn’t you know it, after days of […]

Moving Day

Our two weeks at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve is over and today is moving day for us. I can’t say that we’re sad to be leaving, and I doubt we’ll return to this campground again anytime soon. The campground is heavily treed, which makes satellite TV reception iffy at best and only has […]

Terry says today is just another day. Not to me it isn’t. Today is her birthday, and after all these years, I still don’t understand why this beautiful, talented woman is with a flawed troll like me. But I’m grateful she is, every minute of my life. Happy birthday, baby. I love you with all […]

Once again we woke up at 7:30 yesterday morning, and to all of those who keep telling me “It’s a beautiful morning” and “The early bird gets the worm,” hush up. When I’m on my regular night owl schedule, I don’t tell people “It’s a beautiful night” or “The late owl gets the mouse.” We […]

We’re all settled in at Pleasant Lake RV Resort in Bradenton and we spent the afternoon yesterday running some errands and getting to know the area a little bit. Within a mile or two of the campground is everything you could possibly want or need – a Publix grocery, WalMart Supercenter, Lowes, nail salon, beauty […]
