Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

How About Some Q&A?

I get a lot of questions from blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. It’s been a while, but here are some of the latest. Q. A friend told me something about diesel fuel with red dye in it and […]

From The Mailbag

While I was working my way through yesterday’s e-mail, deleting all of the warnings from the IRS and Windows, and three different banks where I don’t have accounts, all wanting me to click some link to save myself from disaster, along with four messages from women in other countries who want to come to America […]

A Good Day On the Road

Thunderstorms were predicted for Baldwin County, Alabama yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to be on the road and well ahead of them before they arrived. So we left the Escapees Rainbow Plantation co-op a few minutes after 9 AM, headed for Florida. And it was a good day on the road. We had just under […]

We Like Buc-ees!

We were up early again yesterday morning, something we’ve done all too much of lately. That’s a habit we have to try really hard to break. It’s starting to get out of hand. After checking morning e-mails, storing the last things away inside the motorhome for traveling, and unhooking our utilities, we were ready to […]

We Have Visitors!

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is meeting up with the many friends we have made in our travels all over the country. Sometimes these meetings are planned in advance and other times it’s more of a spur of the moment type thing. Or, just kismet. I can’t tell you how many […]

One of the things new or wannabe fulltime RVers sometimes worry about is making friends on the road. Then when they get out here, they’re surprised at how many friends they have! And unlike the so-called “friends” they had in their former life, who were sometimes friends of convenience because they worked together or bowled […]

It Really Happened!

The latest nonsense making the circuit around campfires and RV internet forums is about gangs of thugs approaching RVers at truck stops while they are getting fuel and luring them to the back of their rigs by claiming somebody hit them and telling them that they have a big dent. When they follow them to […]

No, I’m not talking about those folks in Washington who are busy taking bribes and shafting all of us, though you shouldn’t trust them either. But I’ll get to all of that in a moment. After we’ve been sitting still for a while, we never seem to sleep well the night before we begin a […]

It’s Like Radar

Do you know that radar that all mothers seem to have that alerts them when their kids are getting into mischief and need stopped? I’m pretty sure Greg White has it. Our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage has one fuel tank that can be filled from either side of the motorhome. At some point before we bought […]
