Déjà Vu

Terry and I had a sense of déjà vu as we drove through Shreveport and Bossier City and then on across Louisiana. Didn’t we just take this route in our Winnebago motorhome a month earlier when we returned home from our aborted trip out west? Oh yeah, I remember it well! Anytime I drive Interstate […]

Now that we know the results of my MRI and other medical tests, our business is finished here in Arizona and it’s time to scratch our hitch itch. And not a moment too soon. I think there are a lot of snowbirds who came here to be warm and who are so tired of shivering […]

We woke up to partly cloudy skies yesterday, but at least it had stopped raining. We were glad to see that since we really needed to get out for a while to shake off our cabin fever after two days cooped up inside. After stopping for gas, we started the day by dropping off bundles […]

I love getting e-mails from RVers and wannabes and I try hard to answer their questions if I can, or else point them in the right direction to get the information they need. But sometimes I get one that just makes me shake my head in wonder at the things people ask. As a cop […]

We decided it was time for a day trip, so we were up earlier than usual yesterday morning and on the road about 10 a.m., headed west on the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80/90) with Greg and Jan. Our first stop was at the Indiana Welcome Center, but getting there was a bit of a […]

We definitely need new batteries. When we were boondocking Saturday night I ran our Onan generator for three hours. We turned everything off before we went to bed about midnight and the batteries were at 12.4 volts. When we woke up at 7 a.m. they were down to 10.8 volts. These are Interstate batteries that […]

Since we only had about 165 miles to go yesterday, we took our time getting up and getting into gear. After checking our e-mail and responding to the most pressing, Miss Terry stowed things away inside the motorhome while I unhooked our campground utilities, and we were ready to leave a little after 10 AM. […]

Friday The 13th

I’m not normally a superstitious man. Black cats crossing my path don’t bother me, I don’t carry a four-leaf clover or a rabbit’s foot for good luck, and I’d much rather walk under a ladder than climb the darned thing. But all that being said, yesterday was definitely Friday the 13th. We left Elkhart Campground […]

Do you remember a couple months ago when the talking heads on television were predicting $5 a gallon gas this summer, and everybody was changing their traveling plans or talking about selling their RVs and getting off the road? Guess what? It didn’t happen! In fact, in most places both gas and diesel are at […]

Back Home In Elkhart

We were up and at it early again yesterday, so the Spartan Chassis tech could get started on our motorhome a little after 7 AM. Now I have to tell you something, you can call me a whiner and a sniffler and a crybaby all you want, but this getting up so early in the […]
