A Trip From Hell

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we only had a short 45 mile drive from the Hershey Thousand Trails to the Gettysburg Farm RV Resort near Dover, Pennsylvania. Easy peasy. Yeah, right. It was raining when we woke up and continued while I had my Corn Pops, checked e-mail, and answered those that needed immediate […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry woke me up at 6:30, and she’d already been up for an hour or so. Now, I don’t care what all you worm eating early birds say, morning sucks. Especially cold mornings where my nice warm bed calls out and says, “Please don’t leave me!” But alas, I had to. We […]

Saturday night was very cold and I don’t think it got much over the high 50s yesterday. So it was a good day for staying home and writing. So that’s what I did, knocking out about 4,000 words in my current work in progress. It was one of those perfect writing days when the words […]

Friday The 13th

I’m not normally a superstitious man. Black cats crossing my path don’t bother me, I don’t carry a four-leaf clover or a rabbit’s foot for good luck, and I’d much rather walk under a ladder than climb the darned thing. But all that being said, yesterday was definitely Friday the 13th. We left Elkhart Campground […]

Our Trip Is Over!

Because we wanted to be on the road fairly early yesterday morning, the night before we hooked up the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar, and Terry put things away inside the motorhome so that all we would have to do was unhook our campground utilities, pull in our slide rooms and retract our […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Friday was going to suck, and I was right! I mean, how can a day not suck, when you crawl out of a nice warm bed at 6 a.m. and are greeted by heavy frost? And it went downhill from there! After whining and sniveling for a while, and […]

The other day, Phil May from TechnoRV sent me copy of his book From High-Tech To High Plains, in which he tells the story of how he and his wife Tracey left their high pressure lives and careers and became fulltime RVers, homeschooling their two children on the road, and operating a mobile business selling […]

Bad Nick & RV Clods

I will admit it, I  have become one of those kind of people!  We always believe that it will never happen to us, but it’s true. I have become the kind of grouchy old fart that seems to have little patience for rudeness and stupidity, and there are times when I don’t hesitate to take […]

Dumb And Dumber

I got an e-mail from a new fulltimer, who said she had totally embarrassed herself while guiding her husband into a tight site in an RV park where the rigs are only feet apart. She reported that she was walking slowly backward, waving her hands to help him get parked, and was so busy concentrating […]

In The Land Of Yoopers

Thank you to the many blog readers who e-mailed asking if Terry and I were okay when yesterday’s blog didn’t get posted at the usual time. We are fine, we were parked at the Bad River Lodge and Casino in Odanah, Wisconsin, with no cell phone or Verizon air card signal. We were pretty tired […]
