Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

More Of The Same

For most of the time we’ve been here at the Show Low Elks lodge campground, there have only been three or at times four RVs. But with temperatures heating up in the desert it’s starting to get busy. A couple of rigs came in Monday and I think at least three more arrived yesterday. We […]

Another Fast Day

 I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun because Monday was another fast day for us and we got a lot accomplished. I spent some time online making and confirming reservations for our summer travels. Given the choice, we prefer not to have a set schedule and be locked into reservations. But since […]

RV Trip Planning

I’ve been in love with maps since I was a little kid. I remember that my dad always kept half a dozen gas station roadmaps in the glove compartment of his car and I would spend a lot of time looking at them, reading strange names of far off exciting places like Des Moines, Wichita, […]

Fulltime RVers are always talking about shaking up the Jello; they may plan to spend a summer exploring New England but the birth of a grandchild, or mechanical problems, or just a whim of fancy may find them making a last minute change of plans and doing something entirely different. Any fulltimer will tell you […]

Since we only had 27 miles to drive yesterday morning, we were in no hurry to get on the road. This new relaxed lifestyle is really going work to out well, if I can keep a rein on my Type A personality that always thinks I need to be doing something every waking moment. Terry […]

That Was A Short One!

St. Augustine is a really cool town. The only real downside is that everything we wanted to tour to write stories about required admission charges of up to $10 per person. If you’re a tourist that’s okay, but when you do this for a living and may go to two or three attractions every day, […]

Even though we’re far south of where Hurricane Sandy came ashore, and have had pretty good weather since we’ve been here, it took a turn for the worse yesterday. The wind blew hard most of the day and the temperature dropped quite a bit. I don’t think the high got much over 60° and the […]

Fly Boys

They say that the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. Thinking back on some of the toys I’ve had over the years, I guess that’s true. At one time or another in my misspent youth I’ve had everything from sports cars to boats, antique cars, guns, motorcycles, and even […]

We met a very nice couple at the Escapees Rainbow’s End campground in Livingston, Texas during our first year on the road and really hit it off with them. They were about our age, had retired early, and were ready to see America. They lasted about a year on the road, because they found the […]
