That’s what somebody told me just last week when he asked my advice about his motorhome’s eight year old tires and I advised him to replace them, even though they had a lot of tread left and looked good. “You may know a lot about fulltime RVing, but you don’t know everything, Nick. These tires […]

When it comes to kite flying, the wind is your friend, unless you’re in a flat out hurricane. There are different models of kites that will fly in almost 0 wind conditions, and others that perform great in winds over 30 miles per hour. But that’s not the case when you’re an RVer. When you’re […]

A Whole Lot Of Ugly

Some people love the desert and some don’t. I spent many years living in it, but I much prefer being on a beach, or at least someplace with trees and grass. But yesterday it was all desert for us. Just a whole lot of ugly. We left the Las Vegas Thousand Trails a little before […]

Well, Yes And No

After a quick run to the post office to send out some orders, we left the Las Vegas, New Mexico Elks lodge about 9:30 yesterday morning and headed north on Interstate 25 toward Colorado. Except for a few places where the pavement had some sudden dips in it, we had a nice ride through rolling […]

We were up and at it early again yesterday, so the Spartan Chassis tech could get started on our motorhome a little after 7 AM. Now I have to tell you something, you can call me a whiner and a sniffler and a crybaby all you want, but this getting up so early in the […]

It’s Only Money

Can you think of anything worse than getting up at 6 AM? I can. How about getting up at 6 AM so you can spend a lot of money on RV repairs? We were told a tech would be coming by shortly after 7 AM yesterday to move our motorhome into a bay here at […]

Well, it took longer than expected, and we made a very nice donation to the economy of Redlands, California before we got out of town, but we’re back on the road. The first thing yesterday morning the guys at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center were hard at work on our Winnebago again, pushing to […]

Fulltime RVers always say that our plans are written in Jello. That’s because we know life happens and you have to be flexible and take what comes as it comes. We love that Jello feeling, because it sure has helped us this week. We originally thought we would only be here at Redlands Truck & […]

It started raining sometime late Tuesday night and by the time we got up yesterday morning there was a steady but light drizzle coming down. We were up by 7 a.m., which is an ungodly hour even if it isn’t cold and gray outside. We were at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center a little […]

A Rough Trip

We left our site at Patio Gardens in East Mesa at 10 a.m. yesterday morning, expecting an easy five hour trip to Redlands, California. Didn’t Gilligan and his crowd expect a quick trip somewhere once? 🙂 Traffic was moderate and we made good time going though Phoenix on Interstate 10. It was going to be […]
