I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]

Not Yet

The folks who were interested in our motorhome came by yesterday afternoon. They are a very nice couple from Deland, Florida, which is about 20 miles west of us. They spent quite a bit of time looking over the Winnebago, asking questions, and said they would get back to us within a few days, no […]

Where Did It Go?

We were up at 7:30 yesterday morning, which makes two days in a row that we were up way too early. But we wanted to get on the road and out of Nevada. After checking e-mail and taking care of a couple of things online, and then a stop at the T/A truck stop in […]

We were awake before 6 a.m. yesterday morning to be ready for the tech at Rocky Mountain Cummins to take our motorhome into the garage at 7:30. Since we are not morning people, we were not thrilled about that. And it’s been our experience at different repair shops over the years that even though they […]

A Whole Lot Of Ugly

Some people love the desert and some don’t. I spent many years living in it, but I much prefer being on a beach, or at least someplace with trees and grass. But yesterday it was all desert for us. Just a whole lot of ugly. We left the Las Vegas Thousand Trails a little before […]

A Frustrating Start

Our trip to the White Mountains got off to a frustrating start yesterday morning. We were up a little after 7 a.m. and on the road by 9 for what we expected to be just about a four-hour trip. But it didn’t turn out that way. From Apache Junction, the quickest route is to take […]

Once again we were up at 7 a.m. When will this madness stop? I’m telling you, I need an intervention! After checking e-mail and visiting with Julie and Doug Livingston for a few minutes when they came over to tell us goodbye, we left Pioneer RV Park in Hermiston about 10 a.m. and headed west […]

After reading my blog last week about mountain driving, several readers have asked me for tips about how to safely drive an RV in the mountains. I’m not a professional driver, but I’ve been driving a big rig all over the country for over fourteen years and haven’t wrecked one yet, so I’ll give you […]

We’re Here!

After several long days of hard driving, we arrived in Apache Junction yesterday and are settled in for a few weeks while Terry’s family deals with what could be a serious medical issue for her 83 year old father. Because high winds were predicted for Interstate 10 across southern New Mexico Sunday afternoon, we were […]

Once Burned, Twice Shy

Given some of our experiences with weekend campers, we kind of expected to be kept awake Friday night with a lot of noise from all the kids at Pope Haven Campground in Randolph, New York. But we were wrong. By about 10:30 PM everything was pretty quiet and we had a very good night’s sleep. […]
