We’ve belonged to the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), Good Sam Club, Bus Nuts, and a few other RV clubs over the years, but we’ve dropped them all except for the very first one we joined, the Escapees RV Club. Based in Livingston, Texas, the Escapees provide all kinds of valuable resources for RVers, from […]

We were both worn out from our early start and long day Wednesday, and the strong wind rocking our motorhome and rattling our slide toppers made it hard to fall asleep so when we finally did, we slept in yesterday morning. I started the day with a bunch of orders to fill, and spent several […]

We were up early yesterday morning and after spending some time checking e-mails, replying to the most pressing ones, and checking some of our favorite RV blogs, we started getting ready for the last segment of our trip to Tucson. It was a very chilly morning but since we had only plugged in the electrical […]

I want to thank everybody who e-mailed, left messages on Facebook, or called to wish me a happy birthday yesterday. You all sure made me feel very special! 🙂 Now, in case you have been living on Mars or Pluto for the last ten years or so and don’t know it, I am married to […]

I got an e-mail from a new fulltimer, who said she had totally embarrassed herself while guiding her husband into a tight site in an RV park where the rigs are only feet apart. She reported that she was walking slowly backward, waving her hands to help him get parked, and was so busy concentrating […]

For several mornings this week, we were woken up about 7 a.m. when landscapers started trimming the high oleander hedges behind our motorhome, using all kinds of noisy power equipment. I understand that chores like this need to be done, what I don’t understand is that there is probably a 1/4 mile of hedges, and […]

We spent yesterday exploring cowboy country. Many of the wild tales of the Old West, both real and fictionalized, took place in Cochise County, Arizona, and we decided it was time to introduce Greg and Jan White  to this historic corner of Arizona. We left the fairgrounds about 9 a.m. and drove to Benson, where […]

I was up later than is normal even for me on Sunday night, talking to my daughter via Facebook messenger. Tiffany has been dealing with some issues lately, and even though she’s a grown up lady with two little ones of her own, sometimes a girl just needs her dad. 🙂 I’m glad that, no […]

In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how my buddy Greg White wouldn’t take me to Dairy Queen for my requisite sweet treat, and I have to say that I was rather dismayed when one reader made a post to Greg’s blog, congratulating him for holding fast, and even suggesting he feed me a rice cake! […]

As promised, the road service fellow that Coach-Net sent out Sunday night called at 7:30 yesterday morning to tell me that he had located a replacement tire for our motorhome, and that he would be there within a half hour. He arrived promptly at 8, and mounted the new tire and the outside dual on […]
