We definitely need new batteries. When we were boondocking Saturday night I ran our Onan generator for three hours. We turned everything off before we went to bed about midnight and the batteries were at 12.4 volts. When we woke up at 7 a.m. they were down to 10.8 volts. These are Interstate batteries that […]

Today is my buddy Greg White’s  65th birthday, which makes him really, really old! But that’s okay buddy, I’m not that far behind you. Just two charming old farts, right? Although his pretty wife Jan and Miss Terry might disagree with that statement since when the two of us get together, we seem to regress […]

Yesterday started out bad, but it ended very well, so I guess it was a good day after all. But man, that bad part sucked! When we parked at Seasons in the Sun RV Resort a few days ago, I parked about one inch too close to the campground’s power pedestal, which meant I couldn’t […]

This Really Sucks!

Yesterday was a busy day for us, and not all of it was pleasant. In fact, part of it sucked. And we are still not sure how to resolve it. We started the day wading through the usual stack of e-mails, many of them inquiries about the rally. Yes, we still have plenty of room […]

A Good First Day

Today was a good first day for our winter Florida stay. We slept in, rolled over and snuggled up close, then fell asleep again for another hour or so. We finally had to get up, because it was getting too warm inside our motorhome, and we needed to open some windows and let the fresh […]

It is no secret that we have not been happy with the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) for a long time, and I have written several times about the very elitist attitude of many of the people we have met at FMCA rallies, who seem to judge others by the cost of their motorhomes, rather […]

Yesterday was a busy day, but we solved a problem, at least temporarily, and we had a lot of fun in the process. But then, we always seem to have fun, no matter what we’re doing. As I reported earlier, our black tank valve has been leaking, and through Greg tried to fix it while […]

Our two weeks at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails is up today, but we had talked about extending our stay through the weekend, and heading out Monday morning. That’s the great thing about the fulltime RV lifestyle, our plans are usually written in Jello. However, we woke up yesterday morning to discover that the power […]

We had a lot of fun yesterday in Las Vegas, and didn’t spend a lot of money to do so. Yes, you can have fun in Sin City on the cheap! The first order of business was to sleep in, making up for the rest we missed on our trip to Los Angeles. Then we […]

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 […]
