It’s that time of year once again, the start of the snowbird season, and RVs are already abandoning the colder climates up north and heading south in search of sunshine and warm weather. If you’re one of them, please drive carefully. There are a lot of crazy people out there texting and talking on cell […]

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. […]

In a blog about being two-gether that I wrote few months ago, I said that communication and compromise are necessary to work out problems in any relationship, and especially for an RVing couple. I think that many times problems arise because someone doesn’t understand what their partner needs or wants, and this may be because […]

My pal Greg White and I have to stop spending so much time together. If you read my blog and Greg’s blog for yesterday, you might think you are experiencing déjà vu. We spent the day together, went to dinner together, and wrote almost the same blog, even down to the picture! We even used […]

Of course it has turned chilly here in Yuma, down from the mid-70s to a predicted high of only 60, with rain today and tonight. Why is anybody surprised? I’m in town!

The Arizona Good Sam Rally starts today, so yesterday we spent some time checking out how they were getting everybody in off the street and parked. Since this is the first time for both us and Good Sam to have a rally at the Yuma Fairgrounds, there is a learning curve.  32nd Street in front […]

How do you travel? Do you make a beeline for your destination by the quickest possible route, or do you casually meander along until you get there? Do you plan your stops ahead of time so you know where you’ll be every night, or do you worry about where you’ll spend the night when you […]

The weather forecast has been for rain all week, though it seemed to come in spurts, with periods of blue sky in between. But Wednesday night it began to rain in earnest, and it hasn’t stopped yet. The rain was accompanied with high winds that whipped the palm trees in our park, and about 4:30 […]

It’s that time of year again. Thousands of RVers are headed for the tiny town of Quartzsite, Arizona to take part in the annual gathering that is best described as Woodstock For Grownups. Some people will tell you that you’re not a real RVer until you “Do the Q!” They come to dry camp in […]
