We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, and already the stores are pushing Christmas shopping. Isn’t that jumping the gun just a little bit? But then again, I guess it’s never too early to start, so here are some of my favorite tech toys for gadget boys. Okay, for gadget girls too! I’m sure some RVer […]

Like a lot of RVers, we enjoy wandering around swap meets and flea markets, and one of the best ones we have ever found is the Arizona Market Place, here in Yuma. No matter what you are looking for, from tools to produce, clothing, or used books, you’ll find it among the vendors at this […]

We had dinner with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis yesterday, and since they have been bitten by the RVing bug, most of our conversation was about our lifestyle, and specifically what kind of RV they should be looking at, a motorhome or a fifth wheel trailer. This is a subject that is always good […]

With summer finally here, a lot of us who have been sitting still much of the winter are hitting the road, and weekend warriors are getting their RVs ready for vacations and summer camping trips. RVs are complex machines, and while I am far from a technical person, even I am capable of taking a […]

Our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel call me Gadget Boy, because I always want to check out the newest electronic gizmos. But I have an excuse; I want to be able to tell all of our great readers about them, both the good and the bad. At least that’s what I tell Miss Terry when […]

When we got up yesterday morning it was 12 degrees in Elkhart, Indiana! That’s to damned cold for any sane person to be living in, which apparently explains why my pal Al Hesselbart from the RV Hall of Fame Museum is spending the winter there.  But, at least the wind had died down, the sky […]

With Christmas less than a month away, I thought I’d make a few gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. I use, or have used, all of the products myself. 1. Dyson DC31 Vacuum – When Dyson contacted us asking if we would be willing to give […]

Fulltime RVers always say that their plans are written in Jell-O, and that’s a good thing, because it gives us the flexibility to go with the flow. Even when the flow is taking us where we don’t want to go! I have bad news, and good news, and more bad news to share with you. […]

After waiting way too long, due to last minute details we needed to get done, and then bad weather, yesterday we finally hit the road and gave our bad case of hitch itch a mighty scratch! After a week of gloomy sky, wind, and rain, Sunday morning dawned bright and sunny, with no wind. A […]
