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 […]

That’s what I accomplished yesterday. Absolutely nothing worth talking about. All I did was take up space and use up oxygen. I started the day by doing my mile on the treadmill, then answered some emails and deleted half a dozen forwards without opening them. I’ll never understand why people continue to send me stuff […]

Does a mysterious winged creature haunt the hills and valleys along the Ohio River near Point Pleasant, West Virginia, warning people of disasters to come? You may scoff, but many believe the story is true. We learned all about in on an RV trip through the area a few years ago. The strange tale began […]

Always Listen To Nick

I got emails from two different readers yesterday thanking me for mentioning several times that we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full, and whenever I park the motorhome for more than an overnight stay, I like to go into a campground with a full tank of fuel. One couple is somewhere […]

Miss Terry says I am head over heels in love with the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia but I think that’s an exaggeration. Enthralled? Yes. Enamored? Sure. But head over heels? Yeah, that’s an exaggeration. A tiny exaggeration maybe, but an exaggeration none the less. But even if I am, who could blame me? What’s […]

There is an old saying that the only difference between a rut and a grave is the length and depth. I think sometimes RVers need to remember that. Like all people, many of us tend to go the same places by the same routes year after year and lose sight of the very reason we […]

In a blog post last week I shared some Hot Weather RVing Tips to make living and traveling in an RV more comfortable when the temperature starts climbing toward the stratosphere. Among those tips were the benefits of awnings for temperature control. Patio and window awnings not only shade your home on wheels, they also […]

We left Charles and Chris Yust’s lot in the Yuma Foothills about 11 a.m. yesterday, stopped for fuel and then headed north on U.S. Highway 95. It was a great day for an RV trip, about 85o with no wind and lots of blue sky overhead. There is a VFW post a little bit north […]

If the weatherman is to be believed, yesterday was the last nice day we’re supposed to have here on the Oregon coast for a while. It’s supposed to start raining today and not stop until sometime the middle of next week. Terry and I decided we had better take advantage of the blue sky while […]

Time To Move

We’ve enjoyed our time here in Vancouver, and even though it’s only been a few days, we’ve been busy. We both agree we want to come back again. Yesterday morning we drove a few miles east to Washougal, where we toured the Pendleton woolen mill. No photos were allowed on the 45 minute free tour, […]
