No, I’m not talking about those folks in Washington who are busy taking bribes and shafting all of us, though you shouldn’t trust them either. But I’ll get to all of that in a moment. After we’ve been sitting still for a while, we never seem to sleep well the night before we begin a […]

Really? Again?

This time of year you can always depend on two things here in Arizona’s White Mountains; one is that it’s going to be windy, and the other is that the weather will change more often than a politician’s campaign promises. We’ve been here over three weeks and most of the time the weather has ranged […]

More Of The Same

For most of the time we’ve been here at the Show Low Elks lodge campground, there have only been three or at times four RVs. But with temperatures heating up in the desert it’s starting to get busy. A couple of rigs came in Monday and I think at least three more arrived yesterday. We […]

The Elusive Tailwind

There are some things that we’ve all heard about that we know really don’t exist. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Sasquatch, men who pick up after themselves, wives who don’t say “I told you so.” But perhaps the most elusive of these folktales is the tail wind. As RVers, we know they just don’t exist. […]

Holiday Weekend

As fulltime RVers, there are three holiday weekends every year when we try to plan ahead and be settled in at an RV park by midweek to be off the road ahead of the holiday crowds. We learned this lesson our first summer, when we found ourselves on the Washington coast at Independence Day with […]

No Pie In Pie Town

Note: This is Tuesday’s blog post, but we have changed time zones and I forgot to adjust the date. We are always sad to be leaving our family and friends in our old hometown, but we’re also always excited to get back on the road. It’s been too long, and our hitch itch really needed […]

Still Here

Well, we’re still here at the Show Low Elks Lodge campground. The wind hasn’t blown us away yet and they haven’t come to run us out because of all the RVs that were supposed to be arriving. In fact, we have a total of six RVs here, which includes us and the campground host. That’s […]

Down To The Wire

We are down to the wire on our visit to Arizona’s White Mountains and we have been trying hard to squeeze in everything we need to get done before we hit the road later this week. There are several old friends who wanted us to stop by for a visit, but we just ran out […]

Time Really Does Fly

You know, they’re right, time really does fly! I don’t know where the days go, but I look around and suddenly we’re down to only a couple of days left here in Arizona’s White Mountains. We are scheduled to leave the Show Low Elks Lodge campground on Thursday morning. We wouldn’t mind staying a couple […]

Mornings Are Overrated

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]
