We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night. […]

After our busy day playing tourist in Richmond on Friday, we decided to stay at home over the weekend. I always have plenty of writing projects to keep me busy and Terry wanted to work on her latest weaving project. At least that’s what she said. Instead she tackled the latest backlog of paperwork, logging […]

I Broke It!

Anybody who knows me well knows that I can keep a platoon of mechanics and handymen busy with all of the things I mess up in the course of a day. But yesterday I impressed even myself. Just by joining RVillage, the great new social network for RVers, I crashed the whole thing! Call me […]

Oh what a difference a few days make! A week ago it looked and felt like a winter landscape here in northern Indiana. The sky was dark with clouds, the trees were bare, and we were running our RV’s furnace to keep warm. Yesterday it was nice enough for short sleeves, folks were out walking […]

Today’s the day I kick off my first day-long self-publishing workshop and I must admit to being a bit nervous. I’ve presented hundreds of seminars over the years on everything from working on the road to how to buy an RV to seminars on self-publishing. But this is the first time I’ve attempted a day-long […]

Why Florida?

After I wrote that we are thinking very hard about switching our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida, a couple of blog readers wanted to know why, and a couple more asked if we had considered Texas. When we started fulltiming 15 years ago we switched from Arizona to Texas and used the Escapees […]

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. Don’t worry about me and the blog, […]

For the last few days we’ve been beyond busy, and things aren’t going to slow down anytime soon. In fact, it’s about to get a lot busier! Yesterday we had several errands to run, including a stop at RV Parts Nation to have Trina order us a new Splendide washer/dryer combo. But as it turns […]
