You have heard me say it before and I guarantee you will hear me say it again – always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to have a Plan C and a Plan D, too, just in case. You never know when they will come in handy. Our original plan (Plan A) was […]

Maybe It’s Jealous

Thanks to everybody for your suggestions about the problem with our bedroom slide out. Yesterday morning I went outside and ran the living room slide in and out with no problems and tested the leveling jacks, and they worked fine. But the bedroom slide still wouldn’t do anything. Then, just to see, I started the […]

Just Don’t Have One!

Today’s blog is going to start with a bit of a rant and it’s not about a pleasant subject, so you may want to scroll down or skip today’s post. I got an e-mail from some folks who were upset about an incident that did not have to happen and just pisses me off. They […]

It rained hard all night Tuesday night, and when the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning neither one of us wanted to crawl out of bed. But we had miles to cover in another day on the road, so after snuggling for half an hour or so we finally did get our bodies into […]

Raining Sideways

It’s been a cold, ugly weekend here on the Oregon coast. Lots of rain, lots of wind, high waves… at times it was blowing so hard that it seemed like it was raining sideways. In short, it’s been a good weekend to hunker down inside the motorhome and write. So that’s what I’ve been doing. […]

A Trip From Hell

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we only had a short 45 mile drive from the Hershey Thousand Trails to the Gettysburg Farm RV Resort near Dover, Pennsylvania. Easy peasy. Yeah, right. It was raining when we woke up and continued while I had my Corn Pops, checked e-mail, and answered those that needed immediate […]

Last Day In Elkhart

Where does the time go? Half the year is behind us already and I’m still dating things 2013. And, this our last day in Elkhart. Tomorrow we’re heading to the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails preserve in Batesville, Indiana. We’ve been here over two months and it seems like it’s been just a couple of weeks. […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry woke me up at 6:30, and she’d already been up for an hour or so. Now, I don’t care what all you worm eating early birds say, morning sucks. Especially cold mornings where my nice warm bed calls out and says, “Please don’t leave me!” But alas, I had to. We […]

Blowing In The Wind

The wind blew all of Thursday night and most of the day yesterday. It rocked the Winnebago all night long, and when we woke up yesterday morning we could actually see our bedroom slide visibly moving with each strong gust. We’ve been in some bad windstorms over the years, but never anything like that! For […]

Our Trip Is Over!

Because we wanted to be on the road fairly early yesterday morning, the night before we hooked up the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar, and Terry put things away inside the motorhome so that all we would have to do was unhook our campground utilities, pull in our slide rooms and retract our […]
