We were awake by 8:30 yesterday morning and spent the day piddling around here at the house, taking care of some little things we wanted to get done. Two things have been irritations for me since we bought our used F-150 pickup. One was that the windshield, in fact all the glass, had a film […]

As I’ve said many times, there is no more beautiful place on earth than the Oregon coast. But one big drawback for a lot of RVers is the difficulty of getting online in many places. The combination of having few cell towers outside of the larger towns and the rough terrain makes getting a signal […]

Note: I’m too full of turkey and Miss Terry’s delicious homemade pecan pie to want to work, so I’m giving myself the night off and re-posting this blog from earlier this year. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them […]

Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them make the best choices, but today I thought we’d go in a different direction and we’ll talk about some things NOT to do. We thought we had done our research, but starting out we made just about every mistake […]

Except for a Swiss Army knife, can you think of anything more versatile than the simple ball bungee? As RVers, what would we do without them? They’re like elastic duct tape and no recreational vehicle should be without a ready supply on hand. A Ball bungee is a short piece of rubber bungee cord looped […]

Since we were moving less than six miles yesterday, we figured it would be an easy morning. Yeah, right, like that’s going to happen! I did my usual walk around the motorhome that I do every day when we’re traveling. Even though it was a short drive, it’s always a good idea, to be sure […]

Moving Day

Yesterday was moving day for us. As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, a tree branch was scraping the top of our motorhome with all of the wind we’re having and a palm tree was partially blocking our rooftop TV dish so I went up to the office first thing in the morning and told them […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry decided that it was time to get some things done around here that we have been too busy to tackle until now. Since it was a comfortable day, with a very gentle breeze blowing to keep the mosquitoes and gnats down, it was a good day to do some outside chores. […]

We wanted to be on the road by about 9 a.m. yesterday, but that didn’t happen. We were up early, and Miss Terry got the inside of our Winnebago ready for the road, while I made a stop at the dumpster, and then went up to the office at the Thousand Trails campground to tell […]
