Time To Walk Away

I don’t believe that every RV salesman is a liar and a cheat. But the sad fact is that a lot of them are; enough to cast a wide shadow that, unfortunately, sometimes touches the whole industry. I’ve worked in sales over the years, everything from advertising to automobiles, and was successful at all of […]

We’ve enjoyed our three weeks here in the Yuma Foothills and really appreciate the hospitality of our hosts, Charles and Chris Yust, owners of C&C Marketing and insurance. We’ve had time to rest and relax, to get some work done, and to get to know Charles and Chris better. It’s been fun, but it’s about […]

That’s right, yesterday Dennis Hill got a real butt chewing And it wasn’t just me. Miss Terry, Charles and Chris Yust, and even Dennis’ pretty wife Carol were doing it, too. And it went on for hours! By the time we were all finished, I was surprised he had any butt left! No, Dennis didn’t […]

We spent much of the weekend working on projects here at home, and though I was pretty much parked at my desk for ten or twelve hours, I didn’t get much accomplished. That’s frustrating. I’ve been trying to format two of my e-books, Overlooked Arizonaand Overlooked Florida, for print. Usually that’s not a big deal […]

Congratulations to Marilu Nealy, winner of this week’s drawing for an audiobook of Judy Howard’s COAST TO COAST WITH A CAT AND A GHOST! We had 140 entries in this week’s contest, which is down just a tiny bit, no doubt because a lot of people are busy with holiday shopping and travel. Stay tuned, […]

How Much You Got?

One of the most common questions I get about the fulltime RV lifestyle is, “How much does it cost?” The answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is, “How much you got?” The fulltime lifestyle does not have to be expensive, but if you’ve got it, you can spend it. We know some […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry woke me up at 6:30, and she’d already been up for an hour or so. Now, I don’t care what all you worm eating early birds say, morning sucks. Especially cold mornings where my nice warm bed calls out and says, “Please don’t leave me!” But alas, I had to. We […]

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 […]

The Curse Is Broken

We put in a long day of driving yesterday but it was worth it to get out of the gray and gloomy Pacific Northwest. We were beginning to grow moss on our webbed toes. After filling our diesel tank at the Shell station in Sutherlin, at $3.79 a gallon, we got on Interstate 5 and […]

Yes, They Break

I got an e-mail yesterday from a gentleman who is appalled that he has had to take his new motorhome back to the dealer three times to get things fixed. I hated to tell him that he should get used to doing that, because it’s part of the RV lifestyle. And there is no question […]
