Most of yesterday was spent getting the initial 5,000 mile oil change and check-up on our Pacifica, then running some errands in Daytona Beach, and stopping for dinner at Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet, the best Chinese buffet we have found in the area. So rather than bore you with the details of all of […]

Something that Terry and I learned very quickly after buying our house is that customer service is sadly lacking in this area. Businesses will make you all kinds of promises, but when it actually comes to following through on them, forget it. Just because you have an appointment doesn’t mean they will keep it. They […]

The Enchanted Highway

Note: This story is from the November-December 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. As soon as we hit the road as fulltime RVers, people began telling us about North Dakota’s Enchanted Highway, a 32 mile long stretch of two lane road between Interstate 94 and the little hamlet of Regent, to the south. The Enchanted Highway’s claim to fame […]

We’ve been doing a lot of that since we got back home on Sunday afternoon. Catching up on email, catching up on blogs we have missed in the week we were on the road, catching up on laundry, and catching up on rest. And in today’s blog I will catch up on some things I […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. Another collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Size Matters

Note: This is a reprint from a 2014 blog post. One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel, or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question because no one size fits all RV has […]

Sometimes part of my job is bursting somebody’s bubble. I really don’t like doing it, but I guess somebody has to. One such example was an e-mail I received the other day from a very nice couple who have been reading the blog for a long time. They are weekend campers and have a pop-up […]

Losing A Landmark

Thank you to everybody who sent messages or emails expressing concern about Terry falling off of her bicycle, which I wrote about in Wednesday’s blog. She is still a little stiff and has some bruises, but otherwise she is fine and looking forward to taking it for a ride as soon as she loosens up […]

Not Just By E-mail

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Terry’s mother happy birthday. I’m not sure my mother-in-law always knows how to take me, but she has let her daughter hang out with me for the last 19 years so I guess I must be doing something right. Happy birthday, Bess! We love you. […]
