Where Will You Winter?

Most fulltime RVers and RV snowbirds are either in their winter roosts already, or will be headed for them right after the holidays. Many will be joining us here in Florida, others will be headed to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, or to Arizona or Southern California. Anywhere the sun shines and the snow […]

I have been busy writing and doing things around the house the last couple of days, so yesterday it was time for a change of pace. After a leisurely breakfast and visiting with our houseguest, Jim Lewis, here at home for a while, we decided to take a ride and show him around the area […]

Snowbird Roosts

With the season upon us, I thought this would be a good time to revisit some thoughts I have shared in the past on popular snowbirds roosts that we and other RVers seek out when the weather up north starts to get cold. One of the first things new snowbirds have to learn is that […]

Happy Birthday Greg

Today is my buddy Greg White’s birthday. I don’t know exactly how old he is, but I do believe he sat next to Moses in grade school, and when I wrote about building an ark the other day, he sent me pictures of one he helped a guy named Noah put together. Actually I think […]

Okay, I’ll admit it! I’m still not wild about Mission, Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, but I will admit we’ve really been eating well in the three days we have been here! Our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel took us to a wonderful Chinese buffet with a hibachi grill called, appropriately enough, the Hibachi […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said that we would be leaving Bay View RV Resort in Rockport a day early because we weren’t happy with the poor condition of the campground, the lack of Verizon service, and the noise from the nearby pile driving machine, somebody commented to me that they couldn’t believe […]

That’s More Like It

It has started to warm back up, here in Central Florida. Yesterday the mercury in our thermometer climbed to 72 degrees, and by Monday, it’s supposed to be all the way up to 79. Now that’s more like it! Of course, our friends who are spending the winter in snowbird hotspots like the Rio Grande […]

Stuck In An RV Rut

Many fulltime RVers and snowbirds I have known seem to fall into the habit of returning to the same places year after year, often spending their winters in the same RV parks in popular snowbird roost areas like the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, the Foothills area of Yuma, Arizona, or any of the hundreds […]

A Lazy Day

Yesterday was a much needed lazy day for us, after our week at the RV show. We slept in, then didn’t do much of anything all day long. Terry did a couple of loads of laundry, we checked e-mail, cruised the internet, watched TV, and I napped for a while on the couch.  We needed […]

I Found It!

Every fulltime RVer gets asked one question from almost everybody they meet – “What’s your favorite place in the country to visit?’ I always tell people that I don’t have just one favorite. That’s like asking me which one of my kids I love the most. It’s impossible to choose just one. But I always […]
