RV Upgrades

I’m always surprised when people say they wish they could make some change to their RV so it would better suit their lifestyle but won’t because they are afraid of reducing its resale value. I always tell them not to worry about that because whether they bought their rig new or used, it lost a […]

Back To Yuma

We used to do a lot of dry camping but it’s just not our thing anymore and our Winnebago motorhome isn’t set up for extended boondocking. This was reaffirmed for us on our trip to Lake Havasu City. Our house batteries, which we bought two or three years ago, have not held up well at […]

Not A Darned Thing

That’s pretty much what we did all day yesterday. We made a quick run over to Cousin Beverly’s apartment to pick up our mail, but except for that, we never poked our heads outside all day long. I wrote most of the day, Miss Terry logged in the orders that came in the mail and […]

Sunbelt My Butt!

Who said Arizona was in the Sunbelt, a place where retirees and snowbirds could while away the winter months in warm comfort? Whoever they were, they lied! It’s been a cold, wet, windy weekend here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson and I’m freezing! I think if I started driving right now and kept […]

In June Terry and I will begin our fifteenth year of fulltime RVing, and we love it just as much now as we did the day we drove away from our old hometown. That means that we have been living this wonderful lifestyle for almost 1/4 of our lives! And while we may not be […]

Living In Fear

Last week when I outlined our plans to get off Interstate 20 in Texas and to bypass El Paso on a series of U.S. and state highways, I found myself in an e-mail exchange with a blog reader who said he plans to be going fulltime sometime in the next two years. I really hope […]

An Unexpected Treat

We left Sturbridge about 10 AM and got on Interstate 84 westbound, crossing into Connecticut in just a couple of minutes. Strong storms were predicted for later in the afternoon and we wanted to get to Beacon, New York before they hit. Traffic was not too bad as we skirted the south side of Hartford, […]

Arizona Burning

If you’ve never spent much time in the Grand Canyon State, you might not think of this being a place that has major fires. You’d be wrong. Four big wildfires are burning in Arizona as I write this. The Gladiator Fire, burning 60 miles south of us, has grown to nearly a thousand acres, destroyed […]

It is no secret that we have not been happy with the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) for a long time, and I have written several times about the very elitist attitude of many of the people we have met at FMCA rallies, who seem to judge others by the cost of their motorhomes, rather […]
