I get a lot of e-mail. Not counting the forwarded jokes, cartoons and conspiracy theories, missives from hot horny college girls who want my portly posterior, and that nice man in Africa who wants to share his $20 million dollars with me, I get at between 30 and 50 e-mails on an average day. Sometimes […]

It was one year ago yesterday that we had the most frightening experience in our lives as fulltime RVers. Longtime readers may remember that it was on December 4, 2009 that we returned to our Winnebago, which was parked in the campground at an RV repair facility in Elkhart, Indiana, and came face to face […]

Yesterday was a short travel day for us. In fact, one of the shortest we’ve had in a very long time.

We had already planned our trip to Titusville and The Great Outdoors RV Resort when we learned that space shuttle Discovery was going to be launched for its final mission on Monday, November 1. So that was like icing on the cake. Since Titusville is right across the Indian River from the John F. Kennedy […]

None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]

Yesterday was a girls’ day out for Terry and our friend Ann Moran, while Ann’s husband Tim and I had a boys’ day in. It worked out well for everybody. We had told our friends that we’d come down to their place in Rockledge about mid-morning, and spend the day together. The plan was that […]

One of the nice perks of our business is that from time to time we get to try out neat new products, and tell our readers about them. Occasionally we get a product that’s a dud, and I make somebody mad because I say so, but most of what comes our way is pretty cool. […]
