We slept in yesterday morning, catching up on our rest from our fast trip from Raccoon Valley to Titusville. Then we spent a couple of hours following our normal routine of me checking e-mails and my favorite blogs, while Terry had her morning coffee and logged onto the internet to check her favorite blogs. In […]

In spite of noisy trucks coming and going, we slept soundly at the Georgia Welcome Center, and felt refreshed when we woke up yesterday morning. Before we hit the road, we turned on our Onan Quiet Diesel generator, and while Terry brewed herself a pot of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, checked e-mail, […]

For some reason, neither Terry or I sleep well the night before we hit the road for someplace new. I’m not sure why that is, but Wednesday night we tossed and turned most of the night, and only got four or five hours sleep. We were up early, and while I answered a bunch of […]

With the storms gone, we have sunshine and blue sky, and it’s time to hit the road. We are leaving the Escapees Raccoon Valley campground today and heading for Florida. We’ve enjoyed our time here, but we have a lot we want to do in the Sunshine State, and we’re eager to get there. We […]

As massive storms moved across much of the country yesterday,  we spent the day and evening monitoring the weather. This area of Tennessee was under a tornado watch, and we were braced for whatever Mother Nature decided to throw at us. We’ve been in some really nasty weather in our 12+ years on the road, […]

A few days ago we covered the reasons to consider upgrading your present RV rather than going into debt to buy a new (or newer) motorhome or fifth wheel trailer. But a few people have written to ask when you should consider the other option, of trading in your old rig for something new(er). Terry […]

Being Lazy

I was lazy pretty much all day yesterday. Actually, I’m lazy every day, but most of the time I make myself do something. Yesterday, I just indulged myself and didn’t do much of anything. The Stamps.com website was down all day Friday and Saturday, so I couldn’t print the last of the labels for our […]

Yesterday was a graveyard rabbit day for us. No, we weren’t out chasing Bug Bunny through a cemetery with shotguns, but we did visit a couple of graveyards doing some hunting. If you’re not familiar with the term “graveyard rabbit,” they are people who are interested in the historical importance of cemeteries, grave markers, and […]

I exchanged e-mails yesterday with a couple who said that they have a very nice 1999 Newmar Mountain Aire that they absolutely love, but the coach is beginning to show its age and they were thinking about buying a new diesel pusher to replace it. They said that after months of shopping, they have not […]

This part of northern Indiana is a stronghold of the Amish people, and wherever you travel around the communities of Elkhart, Goshen, Nappanee, and the surrounding area, you are likely to see Amish women  in their simple handmade dresses, their heads covered in white kapps, and men wearing black straw hats or stocking caps. There […]
