The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

We haven’t stepped outside the motorhome for the last two days but we’ve sure been busy! I’ve been studying the calendar and making reservations for our summer travels. We usually don’t like to be tied up to a schedule if we can avoid it, but since we plan to be on the Oregon and Washington […]

In an effort to rearrange our sleep schedules, Terry and I have been making it a point to get to bed earlier and wake up earlier, but we decided to turn off the alarm and yesterday morning. I was hoping to sleep until after 9, but a little before 8 a.m. the telephone rang. It […]

Note: I’m too full of turkey and Miss Terry’s delicious homemade pecan pie to want to work, so I’m giving myself the night off and re-posting this blog from earlier this year. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them […]

Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them make the best choices, but today I thought we’d go in a different direction and we’ll talk about some things NOT to do. We thought we had done our research, but starting out we made just about every mistake […]

Yesterday we had a short, easy move to the Wilmington (Ohio) Thousand Trails preserve. It was only 78 miles from our site at the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails to our site at the new campground, and even with a couple of narrow construction zones going around the top side of the Cincinnati metro area, it […]

The Wet Spot

There you go again. Would you please get your mind out of the gutter? I’m talking about our water leak! The other day I noticed that there was a small wet spot on the ground under our motorhome, and since it was near where the refrigerator is, I thought it might be condensation or something. […]

A Windy Trip

Yesterday was a windy day and we would have been very happy to sit still at the Boulder City Elks lodge but the RV sites were all booked, and today the wind was supposed to be even worse so we decided to hit the road and make a run for it. We were aiming for […]

Cannon Beach

We spent yesterday exploring Cannon Beach, an upscale beach community located just a few miles south of Seaside. The town’s name came about because of a cannon that washed ashore nearby in 1846 from the wreck of the U.S. Navy schooner Shark. The town’s most famous landmark is Haystack Rock, which reaches 235 feet high, […]
