We were up by 7 a.m. yesterday, which is way too early for us, but we had a lot of miles to travel. We pulled out of Pony Express RV Resort in North Salt Lake, took Interstate 215 around the west side of Salt Lake City to where it joined Interstate 15 on the south […]

We have had a good week in Salt Lake City, and really enjoyed our time here. We look forward to coming back again.  Pony Express RV Resort is an excellent base for exploring the area, though we actually have not done any “exploring” while we’ve been here. Most of my time has been spent doing […]

After reading in the blog about the frustrations I was having trying to do research at the Family History Library, Roger Marble sent me some website links to articles on getting the most out of a visit to the Family History Library. I spent a couple of hours Sunday reading those articles, and then getting […]

We woke up to gusty winds and scattered showers Sunday morning. Normally, we would roll over and go back to sleep on such a gloomy morning, but we had company coming, so we had to get in gear. About 11 a.m. Mel and Charlene Schwartz arrived for a visit. I wrote about Mel and Charlene’s […]

Many people have asked me how I come up with something new to write about every day in the blog. Usually it’s no problem; I write about our travels when we’re on the move, and about the RV lifestyle in general when we’re stationary for  awhile. And sometimes I stumble across something totally unexpected I […]

We spent most of yesterday afternoon at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, while I attempted to find some information on my grandparents. Operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the library is a vast storehouse of information on people from all over the world. Here you can find […]

After saying our goodbyes to Dennis and Irma, the managers at Crossroads RV Park in Wells, Nevada, we left yesterday morning at 10 a.m. and drove east on Interstate 80. We only had 180 miles to go, so it was an easy day on the road. Terry loves taking pictures as we travel, and she’s […]

I closed yesterday’s blog by telling you we had tire troubles. Here’s the story: From the time we left Gilroy Tuesday morning, until the time we arrived at the the Emigrant Trail Museum in Truckee that afternoon, one of our inside dual tires had lost over 35 pounds of air. This is the same problem […]

In the eleven years that Terry and I have been on the road as fulltime RVers, I can probably count the number of times we have made reservations at an RV park on my fingers. We usually prefer to travel at our leisure, and stop wherever we find ourselves at the end of a day, […]

We’ve enjoyed watching the new Who Do You Think You Are? series on NBC, in which experts help celebrities trace their families’ history. Isn’t it amazing what a person can accomplish with the knowledge, experience, and the right tools? I have been researching my family tree on Ancestry.com for a few months now, and while […]
