Thank you to all of you who sent emails, posted blog comments or on Facebook wishing us well, offering to come to our assistance if necessary, and praying for our safety after my blog about our breakdown on Sunday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the last of our troubles on the Trip From Hell, but we are […]

This is going to be a long blog because I’ve got two days to tell you about and a lot’s been happening in those two days. And, I’m going to do a bit of bitching, so be prepared. I told you so! We left our home in Edgewater, Florida a little before noon on Friday […]

It was great having my son Travis and his wife Geli here for a few days visiting us. We had a wonderful time showing them around the area and just hanging out here at the house spending time together. They left yesterday morning, headed back to their home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and we look forward […]

We had planned to spend yesterday showing my son Travis and his wife Geli some more of our area, but when we got up yesterday morning nobody seemed all that energetic, so we changed our plans and hung around the house instead. Travis’ 40th birthday is a week from today, and last year we went […]

In a blog post a couple of days ago titled The Best Laid Plans, I wrote that the coach (starting) batteries in our motorhome needed replacing, and that the Lifeline AGM house batteries had dropped very low from phantom loads while the RV has been parked in our community’s storage yard for the last few […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Terry and I started fulltiming in our mid-40s, a couple of people who are in that age range now wrote to ask me how we could afford to do that. They wanted to know if we sold a business or got rich in the stock market or something […]

With winter behind us and the busy travel season fast approaching, I know a lot of RVers are starting to think about where they are going to go this summer. So today I thought I would talk a little bit about RV trip planning. There are many ways to plan your RV travels. Some people […]

Yesterday was a busy day at home, and I got quite a bit accomplished. The first order of business was to deal with a backlog of emails that piled up while I was busy getting registered at the Veterans Administration medical clinic in Daytona Beach on Tuesday. And as always, the first thing I did […]

If you’re going to be heading north, try to avoid Atlanta, Georgia if at all possible. The news last night said that a fire caused a portion of Interstate 85 to collapse in Atlanta and that traffic is going to face delays for a long time. Getting around or through Atlanta is a challenge under […]

Thank you to everyone who sent emails, instant messages, Facebook messages, and texts when yesterday’s blog did not post. I had the blog set up to automatically post at two minutes after midnight, and when I went to bed about 11:45 everything looked okay. I seldom go to bed that early, and I never go […]
