Just Do It

In a blog post a couple of days ago titled The Best Laid Plans, I wrote that the coach (starting) batteries in our motorhome needed replacing, and that the Lifeline AGM house batteries had dropped very low from phantom loads while the RV has been parked in our community’s storage yard for the last few […]

That’s what somebody told me just last week when he asked my advice about his motorhome’s eight year old tires and I advised him to replace them, even though they had a lot of tread left and looked good. “You may know a lot about fulltime RVing, but you don’t know everything, Nick. These tires […]

Yes, It Really Works

After reading Tuesday’s blog in which I mentioned using our Craftsman air compressor to air up the motorhome’s tires, somebody wrote to ask if it would really work for tires on a rig as big as ours. Yes it does. I had one tire with a bad valve extender that had leaked down to about […]

It rained all of Sunday night in Seaside and we had showers off and on all day long Monday. I think the warmest it got up to was about 62°. A typical Fall day on the Pacific Northwest coast. We are leaving for Newport this morning where we are scheduled for two weeks at Whalers […]

Little Petri Dishes

Did anybody get the license number of the truck that hit me? My friend Brenda Speidel, who was a grade school teacher and then a principal, always said that little kids were walking Petri dishes of germs, and I think she’s right. My daughter and granddaughters all had colds last week, and because they did […]

We woke up to a cold rain about 7:30 yesterday morning, and I wanted nothing more than to snuggle back under the covers with Miss Terry and sleep for another couple of hours. But we had to get up and get going, because we had a 10 o’clock appointment to get new tires put on […]

My Kind Of RV Trip

Since it was only 113 miles to our destination, we woke up about 8 a.m. yesterday and had a relaxed morning, checking e-mail and reading a couple of blogs before we started getting ready for our move down to Tucson. When I turned on our TireTraker tire pressure monitor it indicated that the Winnebago’s left […]

Crunching Words

After being up so early two mornings in a row, yesterday we spoiled ourselves and slept in, then spent an hour or so cuddling and talking before we got up. Those special times we give ourselves, before we get distracted by e-mail and phone calls and everything else, are our private little treasures. I spent […]

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 […]

We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, and already the stores are pushing Christmas shopping. Isn’t that jumping the gun just a little bit? But then again, I guess it’s never too early to start, so here are some of my favorite tech toys for gadget boys. Okay, for gadget girls too! I’m sure some RVer […]
