Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from January, 2014 and is based on the seminar by the same name that I have presented at RV rallies coast to coast.  We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I reached the point where we preferred the comforts of […]

Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

Some guys go to Fredericks of Hollywood to buy their women something sexy to slip into. But Miss Terry doesn’t go for all that frilly stuff. I go to Lowe’s instead, because she’s more the tool belt kind of girl. Longtime readers will remember that for over eight years we lived in an MCI bus […]

In a blog post a couple of weeks ago, when I told you about Miss Terry doing some painting at our house, I mentioned that we still had a couple of other home improvement projects we wanted to get done. One of them was insulating our garage. It’s a huge 1100 square foot metal building […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog post from a couple of years ago that I felt needed to be seen again, since I get the same questions about these items on a regular basis. I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably […]

Occasionally I have RV salesmen or RV dealers take me to task because I frequently say that if their lips are moving, they are lying. No, that’s not true for everybody in the business, and maybe it’s not even true for the majority of them. But it’s been my experience that it’s more common than […]

Although we are usually night owls, we have been working on changing our sleep schedule, getting to bed earlier and waking up earlier in the morning. So we were awake by 7:30 Monday morning, eager to get our Winnebago inspected and to do the consignment paperwork with PPL Motorhomes in Houston. PPL is very good […]

Make It Your Own

I heard from someone yesterday who had some questions about the Winnebago motorhome we have for sale. She said she had looked at all of the photos we have posted of it, including the upgrades we have done, and her concern was that those upgrades may have lowered the value of the motorhome. She said […]

Thank you all for your prayers and concern in the last few weeks. It was a very rough trip in many ways. My daughter Tiffany is home and doing well after having a defibulator implanted. She coded twice and the nurses told us they were sure they were going to lose her, but they got […]
