What part of “Burn Ban In Effect” don’t people understand? Some folks in overflow here at the Long Beach Thousand Trails preserve had a barbecue or something going yesterday and there was a big patch of burned grass about 10×10 feet next to their rig Monday. Yesterday afternoon they had the barbecue going again, along […]

Somebody sent me an e-mail yesterday saying that he was tired of hearing about kite flying and seeing pictures of kites, that this is an RV blog and that’s all he wants to read about. Sorry, but it’s my blog about our life as fulltime RVers and we don’t spend every minute of every day […]

Yesterday was one of those hurry up and wait days. I had two appointments at the Tucson VA hospital, the first one at 12:30 and the second at 1:15. I was worried that there might not be time for both, but since they were right across the lobby from each other, the nice folks there […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

As I wrote in Wednesday’s blog, when I called the VA hospital in Tucson Monday, they still did not have a time for my skin cancer surgery, but were “pretty sure” it would be Thursday. But nobody knew what time it would be or where it would be at the hospital. So we came back […]

Thank you all for your e-mail and messages of support. I’m not overly worried about the skin cancer thing at this point; it is what it is. The folks at the V.A. have always taken very good care of me. My only concern is that cancer has claimed several members of my family, including my […]

Brrr! Break out the long johns. It got down into the mid-30s overnight here in Tucson and the next few days are only supposed to get into the mid to upper 60s. I highly disapprove! As I reported in a blog a few days ago, on my visit to the V.A. Hospital here in Tucson […]

I had a good day at the Tucson V.A. hospital yesterday. A very good day. I went in a bit apprehensive and came out feeling much better about things and with a clearer picture of what our winter schedule will be. Originally I had an appointment at the eye clinic for a long and uncomfortable […]
