The wind blew hard all Tuesday night at the Pima County Fairgrounds and the slide topper awning over our bedroom slide rattled and flapped so much it was like sleeping inside a bass drum. We had the slide toppers replaced a couple of years ago by a mobile awning guy in Apache Junction and he […]

Thanks to everybody who made blog comments, sent e-mails, and posted on Facebook about Terry’s dad. His Valley Fever tests came back negative, and he is having a needle biopsy on the nodule in his lung early Tuesday morning. We plan to be there for that. He’s strong and has been in overall good health, […]

We were having dinner with RVing friends Stu and Donna McNicol and Greg and Jan White, and during our conversation the names of other fulltimers we knew came up several times. Later, driving home from the restaurant, Jan said that it was surprising how many people we knew in common. That’s one of the many […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said that we would be leaving Bay View RV Resort in Rockport a day early because we weren’t happy with the poor condition of the campground, the lack of Verizon service, and the noise from the nearby pile driving machine, somebody commented to me that they couldn’t believe […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

Yesterday was a great RV traveling day. We started late, finished early, put on 230 miles, saw some pretty country, and arrived in one piece, with no breakdowns or troubles. It just doesn’t get much better than that! We pulled out of the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park at 10:30 a.m., and had a little […]

I have been getting a lot of e-mails from RVers who are concerned about the recent upswing in fuel prices and are starting to panic, just like they do every time fuel goes up. Five or six people have told me that they have scrapped their plans to go to Alaska this summer, quite a […]

Yesterday morning Daryl and Judy Patterson stopped over to say hello and goodbye as we were getting ready to leave Elkhart Campground.  We only had a minute to chat before they left so we could get everything unhooked and ready to take off. Experienced RVers like Daryl and Judy know that if you get preoccupied […]

A Lot To Learn

I always enjoy talking to new RVers or wannabes about the fulltime lifestyle, and hopefully, I can help them avoid some of the mistakes we made as greenhorns by sharing our experiences with them. But sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a brick wall, and I want to ask them “Do you want me […]

After saying our goodbyes to Dennis and Irma, the managers at Crossroads RV Park in Wells, Nevada, we left yesterday morning at 10 a.m. and drove east on Interstate 80. We only had 180 miles to go, so it was an easy day on the road. Terry loves taking pictures as we travel, and she’s […]
