 With only a few more days left before we hit the road, it’s time to begin the work of preparing and packing the motorhome for our summer RV travels. Yesterday we moved the RV out of the storage lot and over to the big concrete apron in front of our house. We weren’t sure the […]

I got an email yesterday from a couple who are currently stuck in Wisconsin dealing with a family medical issue that may keep them there most of the winter. They said that while their RV is supposed to be an “all seasons” rig, they are finding it is far from adequate in the situation they […]

When we first started spending our winters in Florida, even before we bought our house, people kept telling us about how bad this region was for hurricanes and asking us if we weren’t afraid of getting caught in one. No, not at all. In our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we dealt with tornadoes, wildfires, […]

A Refugee Feeling

Miss Terry and I are getting a very small taste of what it must be like to be a refuge from a natural disaster. While we are fortunate to have full hookups here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, the place is filled with RVs of every shape and size with folks forced inland […]

I got emails from two different readers yesterday thanking me for mentioning several times that we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full, and whenever I park the motorhome for more than an overnight stay, I like to go into a campground with a full tank of fuel. One couple is somewhere […]

Boy Scout Lessons

Like a lot of kids from my generation, I was a Boy Scout at one time. I enjoyed our weekly troop meetings and camping expeditions. Well, except for one scary incident when our leader took us on a hike across a frozen lake in Ohio. We were halfway across when I fell through the ice. […]

There is probably not an RVer anywhere in America who hasn’t heard how terrible Interstate 10 across Louisiana is. To hear some people tell it, not only will that road shake your rig apart and loosen the fillings in your teeth, it will send women into labor even if they aren’t pregnant, and will create […]

The Wrong Impression

I had to laugh at an e-mail I got yesterday, from a lady who had contacted me a couple of years ago to ask me if it was true that most RV parks have a ten year rule and will not allow RVs older than that in. As I said in a blog post about […]

Terry’s Toy

What’s huge, takes up a lot of room, weighs a ton, and makes Miss Terry smile? No, it’s not me. It’s Terry’s new Baby Wolf loom. Yesterday afternoon we drove to Prescott to pick up the loom, and the lady selling it surprised Terry by throwing in a bunch of extras, including a lamp that […]

The Wet Spot

There you go again. Would you please get your mind out of the gutter? I’m talking about our water leak! The other day I noticed that there was a small wet spot on the ground under our motorhome, and since it was near where the refrigerator is, I thought it might be condensation or something. […]
