A Change Of Scenery

After three weeks in Tucson, we were ready for a change of scenery. So yesterday morning we fired up the Cummins diesel engine in our Winnebago and hit the road, headed for Yuma. It was close to 11 a.m. when we left the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and even though morning rush hour was […]

Unbalanced

More than one divorce lawyer representing different ex-wives of mine suggested in court that I might be unbalanced, and it looks like they may have been right after all! We went back to the VA hospital yesterday so they could take the stitches out of my ear. There were a lot of deep tissue stitches […]

Fun With Newbies

I know it’s not nice but if you’re an experienced RVer, you have to admit that watching newbies set up is always fun. Yesterday morning some folks pulled in next to us with the requisite shouted directions, managed to get the campground utilities hooked up, and then spent the next 90 minutes trying to aim […]

Congratulations to Virg Chomic, this week’s winner of an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake, the third book in my Big Lake mystery series! We had 142 entries this week, and stay tuned because you may be next week’s lucky winner. The wind blew hard all Saturday night and Sunday morning, and when I […]

There always seems to be something going on here at the Pima County Fairgrounds, and staying here in their RV park we get a front row seat for much of the activity. Or inactivity, occasionally. This weekend alone there are three events going on – a horse show, a Spa and Patio show, and an […]

A Vicious Cycle

Though we know a lot of RVers who are up at the crack of dawn, that has never been our style. Terry and I have always been night owls. One reason I didn’t make the Army my career was because they always wanted me to get up at some ungodly hour when even the early […]

A few days ago I listed Terry’s Ashford rigid heddle loom on the local Craig’s List, because since she got her Baby Wolf loom she didn’t use the Ashford any longer. It was an excellent starter loom and she could have used it for a long time but the Baby Wolf will do anything it […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

Moving Day

We’re moving today, but it will be a short trip, just five miles east on Interstate 10 to the Pima County Fairgrounds. We probably won’t even need the GPS to find our way there. We’ve spent a week here at Voyager RV Resort under the Thousand Trails rate of $3/day. But that rate is only […]

The wind blew hard all Tuesday night at the Pima County Fairgrounds and the slide topper awning over our bedroom slide rattled and flapped so much it was like sleeping inside a bass drum. We had the slide toppers replaced a couple of years ago by a mobile awning guy in Apache Junction and he […]
