I spent most of yesterday being very busy doing not much of anything at all, if that makes any sense. If you’ve ever been an employer, you know what I’m talking about because you’ve probably seen employees do that more than once. I had written the first chapter of my next John Lee Quarrels book […]

I can always trust my blog readers to set me straight when I make a mistake. Such was the case in yesterday’s blog, when I showed a picture of a Morris Minor pickup truck that I said someone had made from a car. Wayne Shunamon posted a comment saying that Morris Minor did indeed build […]

I think I’m getting the hang of this being lazy thing. Of, course, I’ve had most of 60 years to perfect the process. Yesterday we slept in, mostly because it got down into the 40s overnight and it was so darned chilly that neither of us wanted to crawl out from under those warm covers. […]

We were awakened yesterday morning by car doors slamming shut. Then more cars doors. And then even more car doors! As it turns out, Patio Gardens, where we are staying, was having its annual garage sale. This is basically a 55+ mobile home park, with a few RV sites, and every year the folks have […]

Yesterday we drove 75 miles south to Pinellas Park, located just north of Saint Petersburg, to look at different racks for our hard shell kayaks. I love my Sea Eagle PaddleSki 435 inflatable kayak and won’t give it up, but Miss Terry is happy with her hard shell Manta Ray. We wanted to check out […]

I always enjoy talking to new RVers or wannabes about the fulltime lifestyle, and hopefully, I can help them avoid some of the mistakes we made as greenhorns by sharing our experiences with them. But sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a brick wall, and I want to ask them “Do you want me […]

We have had a good week in Salt Lake City, and really enjoyed our time here. We look forward to coming back again.  Pony Express RV Resort is an excellent base for exploring the area, though we actually have not done any “exploring” while we’ve been here. Most of my time has been spent doing […]

It’s windy again here in Northern Arizona, go figure. Yesterday,  for the fourth time in four weeks, Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff was closed due to high wind and blowing dust. Will it ever stop? The wind blew hard all day yesterday, with gusts over 60 miles per hour. It never let up all night […]

We are fast running out of time here in Apache Junction, and we still have a lot to get done before we head to Yuma for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally in March. We still need to replace the tires on or motorhome, replace the house batteries, I’m working on the new issue of the […]
