We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, ready to start our long trip east from not so sunny Arizona. It was another cold night, so cold that when I ran the living room slide in, big sheets of ice fell off the top of it. Hopefully now that I’ve left the state the snowbirds can […]

A Tailwind? No Way!

We left the Escapees Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico and experienced that most rare of natural phenomena, a tailwind. Yeah, I know, I thought they were a myth myself, one of those made up things like leprechauns and wood nymphs, and I was so surprised that I almost fell off my unicorn. […]

Yesterday was a long day for us but it was worth it. After spending the last six or seven months in Arizona, we’re finally in a place with real grass, trees with leaves, and rivers with water in them! We spent Thursday night at the Elks lodge in Tucumcari, New Mexico and were up by […]

It always breaks my heart to see tears in my daughter Tiffany’s eyes when it’s time for us to leave. But she knows that we could never be happy staying in one place for very long, and we promised her and the girls that when we come back next year we will stay longer. We […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at my daughter Tiffany’s place but it’s time to say goodbye. The road is calling and we must answer. I’ve always said that the hardest part of the fulltime RV lifestyle is saying goodbye to the people we love. But the greatest part is that we get to come […]

We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, and on the road by 10, heading east from Hidden Valley RV Resort in Tijeras, New Mexico on State Route 333, which runs alongside Interstate 40, Terry leading me in the Explorer. We had not filled our propane tank since we were at Elkhart Campground last summer and […]

A Not So Lazy Sunday

I got a telephone call yesterday morning from the Apple store to tell me they think they figured out what is wrong with my iMac. The young lady said they replaced the CD/DVD drive again and the cable for it, and then they decided that the circuit board that my RAM plugs into is bad. […]

Does the wind ever stop blowing in New Mexico? We’ve been here nearly two weeks now and it seems like every day has been windy. Sometimes just a stiff breeze, but more often really blowing around out there. I’m really hoping it dies down before we get on the road next week. Driving a 40 […]

The Elusive Tailwind

There are some things that we’ve all heard about that we know really don’t exist. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Sasquatch, men who pick up after themselves, wives who don’t say “I told you so.” But perhaps the most elusive of these folktales is the tail wind. As RVers, we know they just don’t exist. […]
