It’s over already? Wow, that was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2015 like for us? We started the year in Florida at the Three Flags RV Resort in Wildwood, one of our favorite campgrounds in the Thousand […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

A Whole Lot Of Ugly

Some people love the desert and some don’t. I spent many years living in it, but I much prefer being on a beach, or at least someplace with trees and grass. But yesterday it was all desert for us. Just a whole lot of ugly. We left the Las Vegas Thousand Trails a little before […]

We originally booked for two weeks here at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails, which would have put us out on Thursday, the 4th, but we extended for two days and have been trying to decide when to leave for our next stop, in the Reno area. Originally our printer said the new issue of the […]

There have been a few RVs pulling into the Las Vegas Thousand Trails, but a lot more are going out with the Memorial Day holiday over. I have noticed that our Verizon internet connection has been a little bit faster as the place thins out. My friend Chris Yust called from Florida yesterday just to […]

In my time kicking around this world I’ve been in a few blizzards, a couple of tornados, we drove through the edge of a forest fire during our first year on the road, and I’ve seen a lot of Arizona flash floods. Now I can add an earthquake to the list. A little before noon […]

I had a lot of plans yesterday, but time got away from me and I didn’t get much accomplished. Sometimes that happens. The first thing on the agenda was running a few errands during the day, and then back at the Elks lodge campground we walked over to the host’s site for a quick visit. […]

Well, another year bites the dust, and tomorrow we start a brand new year. I’m always excited when a new year rolls around, and we have a lot of things we want to do in the next twelve months, but for today, let’s take a few minutes and look back at 2011. It was a […]

Yesterday was a busy day, but we solved a problem, at least temporarily, and we had a lot of fun in the process. But then, we always seem to have fun, no matter what we’re doing. As I reported earlier, our black tank valve has been leaking, and through Greg tried to fix it while […]

Mornings Are Overrated

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]
