What We Use

I get a lot of e-mails from readers asking for recommendations or advice about various RV products. Over the years many manufacturers have provided us with products to test. Some of them we have liked a lot and others we have passed on for something we consider to be better. So I thought today I […]

Raining Sideways

It’s been a cold, ugly weekend here on the Oregon coast. Lots of rain, lots of wind, high waves… at times it was blowing so hard that it seemed like it was raining sideways. In short, it’s been a good weekend to hunker down inside the motorhome and write. So that’s what I’ve been doing. […]

Can You Say Yuck?

There’s nothing like opening your curtains on the very first day of the year and seeing the guy in the RV site across from you washing his sewer hose out by sticking it under the water bib where the next RVer will be hooking up their fresh water hose. Yuck! Who doesn’t understand that if […]

Moving Right Along

One of the things many new RVers seem to be baffled by is the care and treatment of their black tank and I’m not sure why. It’s really a relatively simple process but people make it difficult. There are only four things to remember, and if you remember them and don’t listen to all of […]

Cooling Down

Thanks for all of the nice anniversary wishes everybody sent us as blog comments, e-mails, and on Facebook. You all make us feel very, very loved. Except for writing this blog, I didn’t do a lick of work yesterday. We slept in, then stayed in bed and snuggled a while, talking about the last fifteen […]

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 […]

A Four Hour Day

Yesterday was an easy traveling day for us, just four hours. We hardly had time to get our Cummins diesel engine warmed up! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I wasn’t sure where we were headed, either to the Lake Minden NACO campground a little north of Sacramento, or the Russian River NACO, near Cloverdale. […]

Yesterday was a day when I should have stayed in bed. I went outside to dump our black tank, and because the RV sites here at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve are so tight, I had to wiggle my chubby butt between a picnic table and the side of our RV. Then I discovered […]

Tired Before We Start

Our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally doesn’t even start until Sunday, when we start parking our Early Birds, but I’m already worn out. Miss Terry, Tom and Barb Westerfield, and Greg and Jan White have been doing most of the work, so I don’t know why I’m the one who is so tired. Yes, it does […]

We spent yesterday driving along U.S. Highway 90, which parallels the Gulf beaches here in Mississippi. The eye of the Hurricane Katrina came ashore here, back in 2005, and decimated the region. We wanted to see how much damage was still evident, and what had changed in the wake of that disaster. It was an […]
