When we were searching for our retirement home, we knew it had to be in a community located close to the beach. The beach is our place to go and let our souls relax from the cares of the world. It has a calming effect on both Terry and me like no place else. Plus, […]

For active RVers who enjoy nature and a little bit of adventure, kayaking is one of the best activities you can consider. Paddling is great exercise and we have done it everywhere from the Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Keys to Midwest lakes and rivers. And once you purchase your kayak and equipment, it’s not […]

Some men are bikers, some men are cowboys, some are rednecks, and some are nerds. Me, I’m a hat guy. When I was a kid, growing up, all men wore hats. Whether they put on a suit and went to an office to work, or climbed into a saddle and spent the day working on […]

I was hoping we might get to do some kayaking yesterday, but I had some errands to run in the morning, and by the afternoon the wind had kicked up pretty stiffly again. So it looks like we probably won’t get a chance now until sometime around the weekend, since we are supposed to have […]

No, I haven’t been a very bad boy who deserves punishment. Well, at least, no worse than normal. And no, Miss Terry and I have not been doing anything kinky involving whips and things like that. I’m talking about paddling our Sea Eagle kayaks. One of the things that sold us on our house is […]

I hear from a lot of new and wannabe RVers who are single and wondering how well they will fit into the RV lifestyle. Some are worried that they will be a third wheel alone among a community of traveling couples. Not at all! I don’t think you could find any more accepting and welcoming […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]
