After 17 years of fulltiming and 17 Christmases living in a motorhome, this will be our first Christmas in our new home. I have to be honest, it feels kind of strange. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. Kind of like learning to flush the toilet with a handle instead of with a foot […]

It’s Almost Over

Well, it won’t be long now. In just a couple more days the mad rush to the stores to buy a bunch of stuff people don’t really want so that you can give it to them for Christmas, (and in return they’ll buy you a bunch of stuff you don’t want), will be over. Of […]

With Christmas coming fast, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. We use, or have used, all of the products ourselves and feel confident in recommending them to you. Midland Two Way Radios – With over a 30 […]

Before I get started today, I want to wish all of you Happy Thanksgiving. Whether you’re sharing the day with family back home or with friends in an RV park somewhere, I hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and good food. We were up early yesterday morning, a habit that we really […]

We are having a great time hanging out here at Nancy Kissack‘s place in Atwater, California. A couple of days ago we rebuilt four security light fixtures on the front of her garage and installed an automatic dusk till dawn switch for them. Not wanting to overstay our welcome and looking for something else we […]

Yesterday we got to see a lot of breathtaking views, made some new friends, and had seafood for dinner. It just doesn’t get any better than that! I’ve been in every state in the country except Delaware, which is small and easy to miss, to England, Central America, and Southeast Asia. But for my money, […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

Eureka To Brookings

We had a short trip in terms of miles yesterday, but it wasn’t a fast one. We left the Elks lodge campground in Eureka, California, stopped for fuel, and then took U.S. Highway 101 north for 115 miles. As it is through much of northern California, some parts of the highway are divided four lane […]

It’s Like Radar

Do you know that radar that all mothers seem to have that alerts them when their kids are getting into mischief and need stopped? I’m pretty sure Greg White has it. Our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage has one fuel tank that can be filled from either side of the motorhome. At some point before we bought […]

Yesterday started way too early for us but it was worth it because we had a very long day filled with a lot of fun ahead of us. We left Elkhart Campground about 9 a.m. and didn’t get back until after 8:30 p.m., but boy, did we make some good memories in that time! When […]
