Miss Terry’s birthday is Thursday, but she got her present a couple of days early. As I have said before, we have decided to downsize and take a new direction in our travels. We considered a smaller RV, but that really wasn’t what we wanted at this point in our lives. So instead, we decided […]

If you live close to the ocean, rust is a fact of life. And you don’t have to get something wet for it to be susceptible. It’s amazing how much damage the salt air can do to metal if you don’t keep up with maintenance. One of the big selling points when we bought our […]

A New Record

It has been miserably hot here in Elkhart the last couple of days, with temperatures up in the 90s and high humidity, which upped the heat index to around 100°. Fortunately, the basement air conditioner on our Winnebago motorhome cranks out enough cold air that even with some of the ceiling air vents closed, it’s […]

Why Is It So High?

Over the years we have been in a lot of RVs. Everything from small Class C motorhomes to huge fifth wheel trailers and mega coaches with four slides. A lot of them are sold on the “Wow” factor. You know what that is, right? A customer walks in, sees the pretty carpeting and all of […]

I’m still dealing with the crud so we didn’t do much of anything yesterday. Two different couples asked us to go with them to dinner but I didn’t want to go out and expose the whole world to this cold, and didn’t feel much like socializing anyway. In the early afternoon a fellow named Gordon, […]

So Far, So Good

Thanks to everybody who e-mailed or posted on Facebook hoping I was doing well after my fall on Monday. I’m a bit sore but not too bad overall. Yesterday I checked the tire pressure on the inside dual where we had the replacement wheel installed on Monday and so far, so good. I wanted to […]

I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably err on the side of caution, but so far I haven’t wrecked our motorhome and it hasn’t burned down with us in it, so I guess my method is working out. In the course of a […]

Yes, They Break

I got an e-mail yesterday from a gentleman who is appalled that he has had to take his new motorhome back to the dealer three times to get things fixed. I hated to tell him that he should get used to doing that, because it’s part of the RV lifestyle. And there is no question […]

Well, I whined, sniveled, wheedled, cajoled and even begged, but Greg White was being stubborn and wouldn’t come to Florida to fix our Splendide washer/dryer combo. So yesterday it was time to pull the unit out of its cabinet and to try to figure out why it was leaking. RV manufacturers don’t make it easy […]

RVing’s Top 10

When we started fulltiming, a veteran road warrior told me that you’re not a real RVer until you have accomplished most, if not all, of what he called RVing’s Top 10 experiences. We must be slow learners, because after eleven years on the road, we still have a couple to go. So are we real […]
