Ruts And Graves

There is an old saying that the only difference between a rut and a grave is the length and depth. I think sometimes RVers need to remember that. Like all people, many of us tend to go the same places by the same routes year after year and lose sight of the very reason we […]

It seems like the worst of the storms that have hammered the Pacific Northwest coastal region have passed on out of the region, and we’re ready to do the same thing. We plan to start heading south today. We’re going to take Interstate 5 to Mount Shasta, California, where we’ll pick up State Route 89 […]

Newport Bayfront

We love wandering around the waterfront in Newport, Oregon. If we ever hang up the keys and decide to settle down in the Pacific Northwest, this would be the place. U.S. Highway 101 is the main road through town and the Deco District, where neat old commercial buildings hold fun shops selling books, antiques, and […]

Photo Ops Everywhere

We love the Pacific Northwest, and this part of the country is one of the most scenic you’ll find anyplace. We spent yesterday playing tourist around Port Townsend and Miss Terry’s digital camera got a real workout. As she said, there’s a photo op everywhere you look! We started out with a visit to Fort […]

For us, no trip to the Pacific Northwest is complete without a day trip across Puget Sound on the ferry that runs between Bremerton and Seattle. And yesterday was the chosen day. We got to the Bremerton waterfront a half hour before the ferry was due to depart on one of its fifteen daily round […]

After having to be up early the last few mornings, yesterday we gave ourselves a much deserved slow morning. After sleeping in we spent some time checking e-mail and catching up on some of our favorite blogs and relaxing. We left the motorhome in the early afternoon yesterday and drove a few miles to Fort […]

One Day Delay

We had planned to leave Arizona today, but the weatherman is predicting strong winds, with gusts over 40 miles per hour, so that’s not going to happen. We’ll extend our stay for one more day and head out on Wednesday. A one day delay won’t change our schedule, since we really don’t have much of […]

Warming Up

The last couple of days have been nice, with yesterday down in the mid-70s. But today it will be in the 80s and the next few days will bring us temperatures in the low 90s. Summer is on its way, and the desert is no place to be in an RV. We’re leaving Apache Junction […]

My To Do List

Like most of us, I have two lists, my Bucket List and my To Do list. The Bucket List holds all of the things I want to do in my life and it’s pretty long, because every time I cross something off I find a thing or two or twelve to add to it. I […]

Plans For 2013

Terry and I are in a strange position for us, one we haven’t been in since our first couple of years on the road. We have no plans and few obligations for 2013. We’re basically footloose and fancy free. Usually our routine has been to leave Florida and go to Arizona in late winter, then […]
