Terry and I have been as busy as bees the last few days, and we’ve gotten a lot accomplished, but we still have more to do. I’ve been working hard on my new Big Lake mystery novel, cranking out an average of 4000 words a day. I’m over two thirds done now and I’m looking […]

Terry still wasn’t feeling back to normal yesterday, so instead of flying kites again we ran a few errands in town, stopped at the farmers market, and then came home. So for today’s blog, I thought I would share some of the questions I have received lately and my answers. Q. Do you guys ever […]

I guess when you’ve been fulltiming for as many years as we have and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all know better, but it doesn’t stop people from asking me questions. I try to answer them to the best of my ability, […]

Enough Already!

Would somebody please turn off the wind? I’ve had more than enough! I’ve lived in Tucson a couple of times in my life, and spent a lot of time visiting, and I can never remember so much wind so many days in a row. We’ve been here over a week and every day it’s been […]

Like most of us, I have two lists, my Bucket List and my To Do list. The Bucket List holds all of the things I want to do in my life and it’s pretty long, because every time I cross something off I find a thing or two or twelve to add to it. I […]

We love our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage. It’s roomy and comfortable, the floor plan fits us perfectly, there is lots of storage inside and in our bays down below, and its 350 horsepower Cummins diesel engine will climb any grade we want to go up. But the one area where it doesn’t measure up to our […]

I get a lot of e-mails from new RVers and wannabe fulltimers asking all kinds of questions, from what kind of RV to buy, to whether or not to buy a campground membership, to dealing with family members who are not happy with their decision to hit the road. I always try to answer to […]

I Yam What I Yam

In the words of the immortal Popeye the Sailor, “and that’s all what I yam.” Take me or leave me, I’m too old to change and I kind of like who I yam. So when somebody who works for the government took offense to me picking on postal workers in yesterday’s blog and left a […]

I appreciate everybody’s understanding when I didn’t post a blog yesterday. I was just worn out physically and mentally from the rally, and when I sat down at the keyboard nothing would come out. But I got a good night’s sleep Friday night, and didn’t do much yesterday, and I’m back and raring to go. […]
