I hope you all have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving. I know it’s traditional to say what we are thankful for, but if I tried to list them all I’d have to write a full-length book. Let me just say that in 60 years of bouncing around this planet, I’ve had my share of joys […]

When we got up yesterday morning it was 12 degrees in Elkhart, Indiana! That’s to damned cold for any sane person to be living in, which apparently explains why my pal Al Hesselbart from the RV Hall of Fame Museum is spending the winter there.  But, at least the wind had died down, the sky […]

After waiting way too long, due to last minute details we needed to get done, and then bad weather, yesterday we finally hit the road and gave our bad case of hitch itch a mighty scratch! After a week of gloomy sky, wind, and rain, Sunday morning dawned bright and sunny, with no wind. A […]

I met a man at Elkhart Campground a few years ago who told me he was unhappy in the RV lifestyle because he was bored. I suggested several things he might do to keep himself busy, and he pooh poohed every one of them; visit the RV Museum? No thanks, he wasn’t interested in looking […]

We left Bowling Green State University Friday morning, and though I had been worried that we might get stuck in the field where we were parked, we got out just fine. We stopped for fuel, then drove north about ten miles on Interstate 75, skirted the west edge of Toledo on Interstate 475, then picked […]
