Before I do anything else, I want to wish our dear friend Jan White a happy birthday. I know there must be a special place in heaven for a woman like Jan, because she’s a saint. I mean, not only does she put up with her hubby Greg, she even tolerates the two of us […]

Will We Make It?

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 […]

We’re Stopping Here?

We were up early yesterday morning to get ready for our trip to the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve. Terry had already turned the driver and passenger seats around the night before and done some other prep work. That always helps. While she was finishing things up inside the motorhome, I walked down to the dumpster […]

Yesterday afternoon we were downtown in Seaside and saw a couple of guys with skateboards who were in their late 20s and being a bit obnoxious. I was tempted to tell them to grow up, but then I remembered that I’m 62 and I spend my time flying kites, so I kept my mouth shut. […]

Domiciles And Kites

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we would eventually be changing our residence from South Dakota, several readers e-mailed or messaged me to ask why. Where you choose as your legal domicile isn’t just about where you register your RV or how much sales tax you pay. There are many other factors to […]

A Memorable Day

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day here on the Oregon coast, with temperatures in the mid 70s, lots of blue sky, and a steady wind blowing off the ocean. In short, a perfect day for kite flying! Terry Rowley, a member of the Kite Life forum, contacted me Friday night to say that he was […]

Friends Old And New

One of the greatest things about the fulltime RV lifestyle is the friends we have made along the way. From the east coast to the west coast and everywhere in between we have met wonderful people that we cross paths with from time to time all over the country. And most fulltimers will agree that […]

Yesterday was a gray, dreary day with light showers on and off all day long. It would have been a good day to sleep in, then spend the rest of our time writing and weaving, and that’s what we had planned on doing. But we had a change of plans. As I said in yesterday’s […]

We have been on the go a lot lately, so when we awoke to a heavy overcast yesterday morning, we decided that it would be a good day to stay at home. I had a lot of writing to do and Terry wanted to plan her next weaving project. Except for the fact that we […]

The Dead Zone

We really like the Elks lodge campground here in Florence, Oregon. The sites are roomy, the place is very clean, the power is good, and everybody is friendly. But it’s an internet dead zone. The Verizon signal on our cell phones and air card are very, very flakey, and getting online is really difficult. Staying […]
