Ever since I started doing seminars at RV rallies, one thing that I have preached over and over is that both partners in an RV must know how to hookup and drive the rig, even if only one of them is the primary driver. As I always say, you don’t have to know how to […]

Any major change in life can cause stress, be it changing jobs, getting married, buying a home, and yes, even retirement. So it should come as no surprise that making the decision to become a fulltime RVer, or even a snowbird escaping the cold winter months to someplace warm and sunny, can cause a certain […]

Since the Oregon Thousand Trails preserves have not worked out for us, yesterday we drove 65 miles up the coast to Astoria, and then across the bridge to Washington, to check out the Long Beach Thousand Trails, which is actually in the little town of Ilwaco.  I don’t think you can find a mile of […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Apache Junction, and it was a busy one, as many of our days have been lately, and as they will be for the next several weeks. Terry’s sister Lisa dropped by during the morning for a last visit with us. We probably won’t see Lisa again until next […]

At least a half dozen different people have written to ask when and where our next Eastern rally will be, and when they can register for it. We won’t have anything "official" on our website about the Eastern rally until the Western rally is over. We tried that once, and had too many people trying […]

Sunday was another ugly weather day, here in Apache Junction, and across most of northern Arizona. The wind had eased up a lot, but it was cold and gray, and rained off and on all morning. Sometime in the afternoon the clouds started to break up and we were seeing blue sky, but it was […]

Playing Catch Up

We spent yesterday playing catch up, trying to put a lot of paperwork and household chores that had accumulated during our trip from Florida to Arizona behind us. It always seems like there’s a pile of laundry to be done, a stack of orders to log in and fill, and a backlog of e-mails to […]

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 […]

What If?

In a lengthy e-mail I received yesterday, a couple wanted to share their great desire to escape the rut they are living in and experience the joys of fulltime RV travel, but they also admitted that they have some serious misgivings, and asked a lot of “what if” questions. What if our RV breaks down […]

For whatever reason, once we were parked at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds Tuesday after driving to Albuquerque from Show Low, Arizona, I just could not get to sleep. I tossed and turned all night long, and I think I managed about two or three hours of sleep at the most. Since we arrived at […]
