Another year of exploring this great land of ours has come and gone. We’re slowing down a bit; this year we traveled 6,316 miles as opposed to 8,500 miles the year before. And that was way down from the 15,000+ miles a year we used to do when we were teaching at Life on Wheels […]

Quiet Days

The life of fulltime RVers isn’t always all about traveling and sightseeing, exploring new places, meeting new friends, and making new memories. Sometimes we just have quiet days at home. And that’s nice, too. Yesterday was one of those quiet days that we appreciate so much. We slept in and then stayed in bed snuggling […]

A Trip From Hell

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we only had a short 45 mile drive from the Hershey Thousand Trails to the Gettysburg Farm RV Resort near Dover, Pennsylvania. Easy peasy. Yeah, right. It was raining when we woke up and continued while I had my Corn Pops, checked e-mail, and answered those that needed immediate […]

Except for a quick trip to the dumpster I haven’t left the motorhome. Actually, I pretty much haven’t left my desk. But the good news is that I’ve only got a little over three pages left to go on the new issue of the paper. That trip to the dumpster was enough. There are a […]

The weatherman predicted heavy rains for yesterday and he wasn’t fibbing! It started coming down just after midnight and never stopped all day long. Sometimes it eased up to just a light shower, but then it would pour again. It was still raining 24 hours later when I was getting this blog ready to post […]

Weekend Warriors

Weekend warriors – you gotta love them. Some fulltime RVers tend to get the attitude that the campground is their private reserve and resent it when the weekend campers arrive on Friday with their campfires, kids, and dogs. This is mostly because of the relatively few who don’t understand campground etiquette and allow their dogs […]

Wednesday the water was out in the C loop here at the Hershey Thousand Trails because somebody ran over a water bib and broke it. When we woke up yesterday morning the power was out in the whole park and they had also shut off the water until the power came back on. So basically, […]

I was going to title today’s blog Terry Went To Heaven, but that just didn’t sound right, so I changed it. But she sure felt like she was in heaven yesterday! For a long time now she has wanted to go to The Mannings Handweaving School and Supply Center in East Berlin, Pennsylvania. For over […]

A Whole Lot Of Nothing

We were tired from our long trip Sunday, so we slept in yesterday, and when we got up I did a whole lot of nothing all day long. If I were on an Army base, somebody would have painted me. Seriously, the most strenuous thing I did all day long was take the trash down […]

I Lied

When I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we planned to break up the 450 mile trip from the Wilmington, Ohio Thousand Trails to the Hershey, Pennsylvania Thousand Trails into two days and to stop somewhere along the way overnight, I really meant it. Honest, I did. But as it turns out, I lied. After bittersweet […]
