I’ve been working hard to make the final corrections to my new Big Lake book, so instead of boring you with the details of that, today I thought I’d share some RV quick fix products that we find useful and can come in handy in many ways. Back at Thanksgiving I told you about a […]

I got an email yesterday from a couple who are currently stuck in Wisconsin dealing with a family medical issue that may keep them there most of the winter. They said that while their RV is supposed to be an “all seasons” rig, they are finding it is far from adequate in the situation they […]

They say that timing is everything, and for some reason whenever an RVer is getting ready to hit the road, the gremlins decide that is the perfect time to mess with you. You don’t have to be an RV tech to be able to do some quick fixes to solve a lot of problems so […]

A while back I wrote a blog about RV Goodies that was very well received, so today I’m going to put a twist on that theme and tell you about fifteen handy gadgets that no RV should be without, and none of them will set you back more than a sawbuck. Brass Water Pressure Regulator […]

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

Thank you for all of the e-mails and Facebook comments of encouragement for Terry’s dad. He had laparoscopic surgery yesterday to remove his infected gall bladder and the results were good. There was no evidence of this being related to his previous cancer, and Terry talked to him a few hours after surgery and he […]

Dead Man Talking

Yesterday started with an e-mail from an RVing friend, asking if I had heard anything about Mac McCoy, who has taught RV fire safety seminars at RV rallies and shows. There was apparently a rumor going around that Mac was very ill, and possibly even dead. This, of course, really upset me, because Mac still […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Friday was going to suck, and I was right! I mean, how can a day not suck, when you crawl out of a nice warm bed at 6 a.m. and are greeted by heavy frost? And it went downhill from there! After whining and sniveling for a while, and […]

We’ve had all the fun we can have, or at least all the fun we have time to have, and today we plan to hit the road. There were a lot of things that we didn’t get done while we’ve been here in Florida, but we have to be in Yuma in mid-February to get […]

Campers And RVers

In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the same time, I don’t want to be responsible for them thinking otherwise, or making costly mistakes. There is a difference between campers and RVers. I define […]
