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. […]

Back On The Road

Well, it took longer than expected, and we made a very nice donation to the economy of Redlands, California before we got out of town, but we’re back on the road. The first thing yesterday morning the guys at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center were hard at work on our Winnebago again, pushing to […]

Love That Jello

Fulltime RVers always say that our plans are written in Jello. That’s because we know life happens and you have to be flexible and take what comes as it comes. We love that Jello feeling, because it sure has helped us this week. We originally thought we would only be here at Redlands Truck & […]
