We’ve enjoyed our three weeks here in the Yuma Foothills and really appreciate the hospitality of our hosts, Charles and Chris Yust, owners of C&C Marketing and insurance. We’ve had time to rest and relax, to get some work done, and to get to know Charles and Chris better. It’s been fun, but it’s about […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I needed a break and we took a day off to play. Actually it was more like half a day off, but whatever it was, I’m not going to do that again, because yesterday I was paying the price for it. We were out dropping off sample bundles of […]

Especially in the lives of fulltime RVers. If you’re not familiar with the term, we always say that our schedules are written in Jello and we never know when something will come up to change our plans at the last minute. We’re in Jello mode right now. From here, we had planned to go over […]

There was a thread on one of the Facebook RV pages yesterday asking what fulltimers carry in their tow cars or the back of the trucks they pull their trailers with. Some of the responses were interesting, ranging from absolutely nothing to everything but the kitchen sink. Most fulltimers we know who drive motorhomes use […]

Happy Birthday America! Isn’t it wonderful to live free in the greatest country the world has ever known? I don’t know about you, but as the old Lee Greenwood song proclaims, I truly am proud to be an American. Today is the last day of the Escapees RV Club Escapade rally, and following a catered […]

Early in our fulltime RVing life, Terry and I worked a lot of RV rallies as vendors, selling our camping guides and subscriptions to the Gypsy Journal. Then we got involved with teaching at Life on Wheels and there was no time to follow the rally circuit. By the time Life on Wheels had ended, […]

I wanted to announce that I just signed a multi-movie contract with MGM yesterday to turn my first Big Lake mystery novel into a feature film starring Tom Cruise as Sheriff Jim Weber and Scarlett Johansson as his love interest, deputy Robyn Fuchette. The mid-six figure deal is going to require a lot of our […]

Any author who’s going to survive for very long needs to grow a thick skin, because there are going to be people who don’t like your books. You will get bad reviews, and occasionally even e-mails telling you why they don’t like your work. This can be a positive if they are legitimate complaints that […]

Sometimes I get up in the morning, take a look at myself in the mirror and get really depressed. I’ll tell you what, if I had known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken a lot better care of myself. Roly poly may look cute in polyester, but naked, it’s just wrong. […]

One of the things I like about an RV rally is all the new products and services we discover. Our Yuma rally was no exception; in addition to getting our motorhome weighed by Paul and Doris Cunningham from RV Weigh Portable Scales, I also got to meet Wade and Jacqueline Weiss from Wade Maid Premium […]
