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 […]

With Christmas coming fast, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. We use, or have used, all of the products ourselves and feel confident in recommending them to you. Midland Two Way Radios – With over a 30 […]

One of the things new or wannabe fulltime RVers sometimes worry about is making friends on the road. Then when they get out here, they’re surprised at how many friends they have! And unlike the so-called “friends” they had in their former life, who were sometimes friends of convenience because they worked together or bowled […]

In the past I’ve published several blogs about hanging up the keys and getting off the road, and talked about where we would settle down. Looking back at those blog posts it’s interesting to me to see how our interests have changed, yet how they have also stayed the same. In blogs in 2009 and […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys.

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]
