More rain had been predicted for yesterday, but while we had heavy cloud cover for much of the day, it stayed dry. Or at least as dry as it can be when the humidity is 94%. I’m not making that up folks, you can almost reach out and touch the moisture in the air. I’m […]

Miss Terry has been working in a mad frenzy, stuffing envelopes as fast as I can lug bundles of papers into the motorhome and carry the filled mailing tubs back out to the Explorer. I tell you, that girl never stops! I get tired just watching her work! We had visitors yesterday afternoon, and I […]

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 […]

It was another chilly day here at the Orlando Thousand Trails campground, so we spent most of the day at home. The bad news is that being stuck inside too long really gives me cabin fever. But, the good news is that we’re getting a lot of things accomplished. Yesterday I found a mail service […]

None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]

Yesterday was a girls’ day out for Terry and our friend Ann Moran, while Ann’s husband Tim and I had a boys’ day in. It worked out well for everybody. We had told our friends that we’d come down to their place in Rockledge about mid-morning, and spend the day together. The plan was that […]

One of the nice perks of our business is that from time to time we get to try out neat new products, and tell our readers about them. Occasionally we get a product that’s a dud, and I make somebody mad because I say so, but most of what comes our way is pretty cool. […]

We slept in yesterday morning, catching up on our rest from our fast trip from Raccoon Valley to Titusville. Then we spent a couple of hours following our normal routine of me checking e-mails and my favorite blogs, while Terry had her morning coffee and logged onto the internet to check her favorite blogs. In […]

In spite of noisy trucks coming and going, we slept soundly at the Georgia Welcome Center, and felt refreshed when we woke up yesterday morning. Before we hit the road, we turned on our Onan Quiet Diesel generator, and while Terry brewed herself a pot of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, checked e-mail, […]

For some reason, neither Terry or I sleep well the night before we hit the road for someplace new. I’m not sure why that is, but Wednesday night we tossed and turned most of the night, and only got four or five hours sleep. We were up early, and while I answered a bunch of […]
