That’s been the theme song at our motorhome for the last few days. Between Miss Terry, myself, and our friend Jim, I think we’ve sent first quarter sales for the folks that make Kleenex, Alka Seltzer Cold Formula, and Mucinex skyrocketing to new levels. Yesterday morning I actually discovered a spot in the web between […]

We were here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve a few yeas ago when we bought our Ford Explorer. It came with every option available the year it was built, and driving back to the campground I was playing with all the buttons and gizmos to see what they did. After I while I realized […]

Four years ago today we returned to our motorhome, which was parked at an RV repair shop, and came face to face with an armed burglar. It was a terrifying experience and one that taught us that complacency can get you killed in a hurry. I wrote about the incident in a blog post titled […]

Happy Fathers Day to all of the dad’s out there. Be sure to call your father and tell him you love him. My own dad has been gone for over twenty-five years and I sure do miss him. He was always my biggest fan and he always encouraged me to follow my dreams. He gave […]

It rained hard all of Tuesday night, sometimes just a light tapping on our motorhome’s roof and other times a downpour loud enough to wake the dead. When we woke up yesterday there were puddles of water everywhere around us, but the folks who had been parked next to us in a fifth wheel were […]

I guess when you’ve been fulltiming for as many years as we have and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all know better, but it doesn’t stop people from asking me questions. I try to answer them to the best of my ability, […]

We decided it was time for a day trip, so we were up earlier than usual yesterday morning and on the road about 10 a.m., headed west on the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80/90) with Greg and Jan. Our first stop was at the Indiana Welcome Center, but getting there was a bit of a […]

We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]
