It took me a while to get back into my current work in progress, Big Lake Tragedy, but once I did it started rolling along very well. In the last three days I’ve done close to 8,000 words. So I was ready for a break yesterday, and when we found an exercise bike Terry was […]

When you live and travel fulltime in an RV, something you always have to be aware of is weight considerations. There’s an old saying that whenever something comes in, something else has to go out. That’s why every time Miss Terry purchased a couple of skeins of yarn, I tried to stay as far away […]

Another One Done

Well, we did it. We survived Christmas and managed to avoid going into any of the big box stores except for just one time during the shopping season. To me, that’s always an accomplishment. The crowds, the commercialism, and all of the nonsense takes away from the real meaning of the holiday, and I don’t […]

Merry Christmas everybody! Wherever you are celebrating the holiday, whether it be home with family, at an RV park, or boondocking in the Arizona desert, Miss Terry and I want you to know that one of the greatest gifts we have ever received is your friendship and support. We have been keeping busy here in […]

I can’t find my underwear. No, I didn’t get drunk and crazy at the office Christmas party and do something stupid, mainly because I don’t drink, it’s not Christmas yet, and I’m the only person in my office. But somehow in the move from the motorhome to the house I managed to lose all but […]

One of the biggest fears I hear about from new and wannabe RVers is what happens if somebody gets sick or seriously injured while traveling. Hopefully it never will, but sometimes life has other plans for us. A little advance preparation will help make things a lot easier. The first thing you should do is […]

Hurry Up And Wait

We spent yesterday morning at the VA hospital and accomplished absolutely nothing. But that was because of no failing on the part of the VA. Even after jumping through all the privacy hoops they insisted on, the dweebs at the hospital in Temecula, California failed to send the records from my time there. So with […]

And The Madness Begins

It’s Black Friday, let the madness begin! This is the official start of the Christmas shopping season, and my official boycott of all big box stores until all of the nonsense is over. Until January 1st I do everything I can to avoid the crowds and insanity driven by American consumerism. It has nothing to […]

It Really Happened!

The latest nonsense making the circuit around campfires and RV internet forums is about gangs of thugs approaching RVers at truck stops while they are getting fuel and luring them to the back of their rigs by claiming somebody hit them and telling them that they have a big dent. When they follow them to […]

Dragons And Inkles

Longtime readers may remember that I tried to use Dragon Dictate speech to text software to write my books off and on for over three years on my iMac and found it a total waste of time. It was so slow and had so many errors that even though I’m a slow two-finger typist, I […]
