I will never forget our first Thanksgiving on the road. We had been stuck in the Phoenix area waiting for RV repairs and when they finally got done we just wanted to be gone. We hit the road and found ourselves in an RV park in Saint David, Arizona that night. The next day we […]

If I Had It To Do Over

How many times have you heard someone say, “If I had it to do over, I sure would do things differently.” Yes, hindsight is always 20/20, but we make our choices and live with them. If they turn out not to be the best choices, hopefully we learn from them. My father used to always […]

Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

A few days ago I updated and reposted a blog on working on the road, and ended it by saying that I would post a blog on ways you can make money with your computer as you travel. These are just a few ways to earn a buck or two with a computer. More to […]

Not As Noisy

By yesterday afternoon it was not as noisy around here as it had been for the last few days. There are still a lot of Harleys here, but the RV park is starting to thin out as bikers who were here for Biketoberfest are leaving. But the folks in the office tell me it will […]

I bought my first motorcycle when I was 15 years old, a much used and abused Triumph Daytona. A summer of hard work at a gas station allowed me to buy not only my first car, but a better bike, a 1968 Triumph Bonneville. For the next 30 years there were not many times in […]

A Refugee Feeling

Miss Terry and I are getting a very small taste of what it must be like to be a refuge from a natural disaster. While we are fortunate to have full hookups here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, the place is filled with RVs of every shape and size with folks forced inland […]

You Can’t

I got an email yesterday from somebody who is a little south of Titusville, Florida, right in the path of Hurricane Matthew. He said that he didn’t think the storm was going to be as serious as everybody was warning and he had planned to stay put until the RV park owners left and said […]

How Hot Is It?

A heat wave has been baking the upper Midwest, with temperatures here in northern Indiana in the 90s. Every newscast is warning people to be sure to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid strenuous activity whenever possible. So how hot is it? Yesterday I saw two trees fighting over a dog. But don’t take […]

We Make It Work

Several blog readers have asked how big Miss Terry’s Baby Wolf loom is and how much space it takes up in our motorhome. The loom folds up when not in use. When it’s opened up, the loom’s footprint is about three feet square, with the beam handle adding another six inches or so to its […]
