Like a lot of kids from my generation, I was a Boy Scout at one time. I enjoyed our weekly troop meetings and camping expeditions. Well, except for one scary incident when our leader took us on a hike across a frozen lake in Ohio. We were halfway across when I fell through the ice. […]

One Problem Fixed

I mentioned the other day that we had a water leak that we could not find and that it was getting worse. A couple of blog readers recommended Morry Bernard, who runs West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair here in Florence and is also in our RV Good Guys guide, so I knew he […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

The Wrong Impression

I had to laugh at an e-mail I got yesterday, from a lady who had contacted me a couple of years ago to ask me if it was true that most RV parks have a ten year rule and will not allow RVs older than that in. As I said in a blog post about […]

Yesterday was another busy day for all of us here at my daughter’s house in Taylor, Arizona, but we had a lot of fun. While I reviewed two more chapters of the audiobook version of Crazy Days in Big Lake, Terry and Tiffany went to a craft fair nearby, and then ran some errands. When […]

Terry’s Toy

What’s huge, takes up a lot of room, weighs a ton, and makes Miss Terry smile? No, it’s not me. It’s Terry’s new Baby Wolf loom. Yesterday afternoon we drove to Prescott to pick up the loom, and the lady selling it surprised Terry by throwing in a bunch of extras, including a lamp that […]

When we woke up yesterday morning, we discovered that the water in the campground had been turned off. I called the office and the lady I spoke to said it would be back on sometime in the afternoon. No problem, that’s why we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full. I turned […]

Sometimes I wonder how some people ever get to the point in life where they can afford an RV and become fulltime RVers, or even weekend campers, because they are just so…. well, there’s no other way to say it….so dumb! One of the good things about my job is that I get a lot […]

Can You Say Yuck?

I’ve seen a lot of yucky things in our time on the road as fulltime RVers. I’ve seen sewer hoses come loose and spray a big stinky mess all over the place; I’ve seen people leave dump stations so filthy that any self-respecting hound dog that wandered by would not raise his leg on them; […]
