It’s A Wet Heat

Terry and I both spent many years living in the desert of Arizona before we moved up to the White Mountains, which was prior to our becoming fulltime RVers. And anybody who has ever been there knows that it gets terribly hot for months on end in the late spring, all summer long, and into […]

It sounds like we are in a war zone here in northern Indiana. There have been fireworks going off all over the place for several days now, and it will probably continue into Tuesday. They are legal here and folks are having a great time setting them off. They don’t really bother me, though I […]

Why Is It So High?

Over the years we have been in a lot of RVs. Everything from small Class C motorhomes to huge fifth wheel trailers and mega coaches with four slides. A lot of them are sold on the “Wow” factor. You know what that is, right? A customer walks in, sees the pretty carpeting and all of […]

We actually had two days with blue sky in a row here in Elkhart over the weekend! Could this be the beginning of a trend? Unfortunately, even though the sky was clear the wind still blew hard all day long and the temperature never got above the low 50s. And today the forecast is for […]

It has been raining hard here in Apache Junction since sometime in the wee hours of yesterday morning and I’m talking a real downpour, not just a shower. The news has reported flooding in some areas and there have been reports of carports being destroyed by wind and hail in some places around Phoenix. If […]

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 […]

If anybody came by to knock on our door yesterday morning, we never heard them. We were busy sawing logs after having to be up early every morning to man our vendor booth at Escapade. When we did finally drag ourselves out of bed, we went outside to wish Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks […]

We left the fairgrounds in Douglas about 9:30 yesterday morning and began the 120 mile run north to Gillette on State Route 59. It was a nice day for traveling, and since we had until 2 p.m. to arrive and get parked, we were not in any big hurry. Which was just as well, because […]

Some days everything falls into place, and other days things seem to conspire against me and making anything work out right is kind of like herding kittens. Yesterday started out like that. I was supposed to have another interview about my self-publishing experiences early in the day, but somehow myself and the interviewer got our […]
