None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]

Yesterday was a girls’ day out for Terry and our friend Ann Moran, while Ann’s husband Tim and I had a boys’ day in. It worked out well for everybody. We had told our friends that we’d come down to their place in Rockledge about mid-morning, and spend the day together. The plan was that […]

One of the nice perks of our business is that from time to time we get to try out neat new products, and tell our readers about them. Occasionally we get a product that’s a dud, and I make somebody mad because I say so, but most of what comes our way is pretty cool. […]

We slept in yesterday morning, catching up on our rest from our fast trip from Raccoon Valley to Titusville. Then we spent a couple of hours following our normal routine of me checking e-mails and my favorite blogs, while Terry had her morning coffee and logged onto the internet to check her favorite blogs. In […]

In spite of noisy trucks coming and going, we slept soundly at the Georgia Welcome Center, and felt refreshed when we woke up yesterday morning. Before we hit the road, we turned on our Onan Quiet Diesel generator, and while Terry brewed herself a pot of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, checked e-mail, […]

We came to Las Vegas because we needed a little vacation after our Gypsy Gathering rally in Yuma, Arizona a couple of weeks ago. As it turns out, relaxing is hard work! We have been playing tourist with our friends Greg and Jan White, and between seeing the sights of Sin City, and the time […]

After spending the night at the Flying J in Midway, Florida, we had an easy run west to the Alabama state line, and pulled into the Escapees Rainbow Plantation RV Park in Summerdale about noon yesterday. I have always said that coming into an Escapees park is like a homecoming, because there is always somebody […]

We spent yesterday exploring part of the Crystal Coast; this interesting, laid back region of North Carolina. Here you can find everything from bustling small cities like Beaufort and Morehead City, to quaint little fishing towns like Harkers Island. No matter what your interests are, from history to collecting seashells, to fishing, or just sitting […]

With Hurricane Ida downgraded to a tropical storm, we were not too worried about it up here in North Carolina. The weather reports are predicting heavy rain and wind on Wednesday, but nothing we can’t handle. However, I wanted to get out of our campsite at Neuseway Nature Park in Kinston, because the high water […]
