We are spending the week in Tuscaloosa, Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, and we’re taking advantage of every moment we can to be with them. So I’m going to be slow to respond to emails and Facebook messages all week. If it’s something important I will try to reply as soon […]

I finished my newest book, Big Lake Brewpub, yesterday afternoon and started giving it a read through, tweaking things here and there. I’ll finish with that today and then turn it over to Miss Terry for the first round of editing and proofing. When she is done with that I’ll make the necessary revisions and […]

Three Weeks? Really?

It’s hard to believe that our three weeks here at the Chesapeake Bay Thousand Trails preserve is over already. Where did the time go? Oh, that’s right, it went by fast while we were playing tourist and exploring all of the places to see and do in this area of southeast Virginia. Being a mystery […]

It’s no secret that I love books, both reading and writing them. Even with the wealth of knowledge available on the internet, there are still a lot of great RVing books that should be on your bookshelf, or in Kindle. And even with a gazillion apps for RVers, there are times when you can’t get […]

It started raining a little after midnight and continued for most of Saturday, like we needed more of it. The ground is saturated and water is standing in puddles everywhere. And we have more forecast for today. The rain didn’t really impact us because we’ve been busy labeling and stuffing envelopes pretty much nonstop. Except […]

Yesterday was the first day of the Escapees 54th Escapade rally here at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana and it was a busy day. We were up by 7 a.m. and in our vendor booth before 9, ready to do business as the crowds started flocking in. And flock they did. There were very few […]

Who turned off the heat? It looks and feels like winter here in Elkhart, Indiana. We’ve had a lot of wind, a little rain, and the daytime temperatures have not climbed above the mid-50s the last few days and are not going to get above the low 60s for the next week or so. I […]

Company And Fish

They say that company and fish start to smell after three days and it’s time to move on. I’m not sure if that applies when you’re staying in your RV and especially not when the weather is unsafe to travel, but we’ve been parked at my daughter Tiffany’s house in Taylor, Arizona for a week […]

I’m Famous!

Several years ago my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky tried out the fulltime RV lifestyle for a while and we spent some wonderful times together on the road. Early on, we were all sitting under their motorhome’s awning at Elkhart Campground and somebody came by with a copy of one of my RV […]

We are down to the wire on our visit to Arizona’s White Mountains and we have been trying hard to squeeze in everything we need to get done before we hit the road later this week. There are several old friends who wanted us to stop by for a visit, but we just ran out […]
