I received an email the other day from someone telling me that they had reservations at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve for two weeks this month, but now they’re thinking about canceling them because they are worried about the mass shooting that happened there earlier this month. They asked me if I thought it […]

Most people who know me well will tell you that I have a few decent qualities including a good sense of humor, a bit of intelligence, and I’ve even been accused of generosity a time or two. However, if they were honest, they would also tell you that patience is not one of my virtues. […]

Nobody really knows where Hurricane Irma is headed, but things aren’t looking good for Florida. As of last night they said there is a very good chance it would come up the east coastline, which puts us right in its path. We had planned on leaving Saturday to go up to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for my […]

Apples And Oranges

Quite a few of you have asked how traveling to Arizona and back in our Chrysler Pacifica compared to traveling in our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage diesel pusher. There are pros and cons to both methods of travel, but really, it’s like comparing apples and oranges. While there are some similarities, there are also many differences. […]

After being gone for so long it was absolutely wonderful to sleep in our own bed Wednesday night. In fact, it was so good that neither one of us wanted to get up yesterday morning. But we did, because we had a lot of catching up to do. The first order of business for me […]

We Are Home!

Thank you all for your prayers and concern in the last few weeks. It was a very rough trip in many ways. My daughter Tiffany is home and doing well after having a defibulator implanted. She coded twice and the nurses told us they were sure they were going to lose her, but they got […]

A Guy’s RV

We have seen some oddball RVs in our time, everything from wacky school bus conversions that looked like 1960s hippy creations to RVs made out of old ambulances, and even a hearse once. Not to mention some very unique ones built on heavy duty truck chassis that looked like log cabins. I think if it […]

We have been on the go so much lately that we really needed a day at home just to recharge our batteries and get caught up on things around here. So we never left the house yesterday, which was just fine with both of us. We slept in a bit and then after breakfast we […]

And Away We Go!

Unless something catastrophic and totally unexpected happens overnight, we will be on the road this morning, headed west. We still have to move the food from the refrigerator in the house to one in the motorhome, I have to unhook my computer and take it out to the RV, and then we are off like […]

A Schedule (Of Sorts)

Miss Terry and I spent too many years of our lives on a schedule, both before we became fulltime RVers, and then for most of our 17+ years as working RVers. It seemed like we were always on our way to some rally or speaking gig or something. In the last few years we have […]
