Oh, the joys of home ownership, whether your home sits on a foundation or on wheels. They say a boat is a hole in the water you throw money into, and an RV is a hole in the highway you throw money into. So then I guess a house must be a hole in the […]

An Easy Day

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]

There’s a saying in the RV world that if you don’t like the neighbors, you can just move. So we did! Actually our neighbors were fine people, they were just parked too close to us. But that wasn’t their fault, the RV sites in some parts of the A section at the Orlando Thousand Trails […]

A Good Day On the Road

Thunderstorms were predicted for Baldwin County, Alabama yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to be on the road and well ahead of them before they arrived. So we left the Escapees Rainbow Plantation co-op a few minutes after 9 AM, headed for Florida. And it was a good day on the road. We had just under […]

After a quick visit with Greg and Jan yesterday morning we pulled out of the Colorado River Thousand Trails in Columbus, Texas at 10 o’clock, eastbound on Interstate 10. I was a little apprehensive about going through Houston, but Greg had assured me that on a Sunday morning it shouldn’t be bad at all. And he […]

A Long Traffic Jam

After spending most of Monday morning on the telephone arguing with the idiots at Temecula Valley Hospital to get them to release my records to the VA hospital in Tucson that they were supposed to do last week, they finally got off their lazy butts and did something and sent the records late on Monday, […]

I was sniveling because it was down in the upper 30s at night on the Central Coast, so I left and went to a place where it was even colder! What’s wrong with this picture? Yesterday morning we said our farewells to our friends Tom and Barbara Westerfield and pulled out of the Atascadero, California […]

Warming Up

We were scheduled to leave the Whalers Rest Thousand Trails near Newport, Oregon today, but by Sunday evening I had had all I could take of the cold, the wet, and the dreariness and told Miss Terry to get ready to hit the road Monday morning instead. And wouldn’t you know it, after days of […]

It’s Alive!

We loved our week with my son and his wife in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but all too soon it was time to say goodbye and hit the road. Travis and Geli came over about 9 a.m. yesterday to see us off, and after a lot of hugs and a few tears shed, we left the Elks […]

It rained hard all night Thursday night and when I opened my eyes a little after 7 a.m. yesterday all I wanted to do was roll over, cuddle up to Miss Terry, and go back to sleep. But alas, she was already up and about. I used my best puppy dog eyes to try to […]
