Yesterday was one of those good news, bad news kind of days. You know what I mean, you’ve had them too, I’m sure. Part of the good news was that we got to spend some time with some really cool people. Longtime blog readers Bob and Michelle Hazlett drove up from their place at The […]

I wanted to give you an update on the couple I told you about in yesterday’s blog, who were beginning to feel anxious about boondocking in Quartzsite, Arizona after a neighbor filled their heads with all kinds of nonsense about how dangerous it was.

Several blog readers have been asking me about the legalities of taking guns to New England when they go to Vermont for Escapade this summer. I think Vermont is pretty easy to get along with, but some of the other states in the region, like Massachusetts and New York, are not all that welcoming to travelers […]

Some blog readers who live here in the great state of Alabama have been apologizing to me for how bad the weather has been during our visit to Tuscaloosa, as have been my son Travis and his wife Geli. Please don’t feel that way, you folks cannot control the weather. But apparently I do have […]

The worst cold snap of the year has hit central Florida and we spent yesterday inside hiding out. It was down in the low 30s overnight and it doesn’t look any better for today and tonight. It was a busy day. I spent part of it trying to resolve some of the issues with my […]

Until you’ve been in old town St. Augustine, Florida on Halloween evening, you just have not seen Halloween! We spent the day playing tourist in America’s oldest city, and saw everything from pirates and soldiers to zombies, witches and werewolves. I think they were dressed up for Halloween? Maybe that’s just the way folks roll […]

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 […]
