After reading my blog post the other day titled We Got Boosted in which I wrote about the weBoost 4G RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit I was sent to review, I got three or four inquiries from blog readers wanting to know how often we get freebies like that, and how they can get […]

Some blog readers who live here in the great state of Alabama have been apologizing to me for how bad the weather has been during our visit to Tuscaloosa, as have been my son Travis and his wife Geli. Please don’t feel that way, you folks cannot control the weather. But apparently I do have […]

Almost 18 years ago Terry and I honeymooned in Morro Bay, California and fell in love with the charming small town on California’s Central Coast. So on our trip south from Oregon we built time into our schedule for another visit. The town takes its name from 581 foot tall Morro Rock, the imposing monolith […]

I have had several e-mail and online discussions with folks recently about what is the best RV for their needs. I do a 90 minute seminar at RV shows and rallies called How To Be A Smart RV Shopper. It’s never enough time to cover all of the things that a lot of buyers never […]

For years we have been hearing about Winter Blast in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and people kept telling us it was a can’t miss event. Every year members of the Western Pyrotechnic Association come to town for a week of seminars, demonstrations and to put on world class fireworks displays. Our friends Tom and Barbara […]

We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I have reached the point where we prefer the comforts of a full hookup RV park, we are no strangers to dry camping. In fact, we probably have a lot more experience at it than most folks we know. There was a […]

No matter what you have ever heard, there is absolutely no energy crisis, there never has been an energy crisis, and there never will be an energy crisis. All we have ever had is a technology crisis, and misdirected focus! If you doubt me, spend an afternoon with two little granddaughters, ages seven and three. […]

Terry and I have been dry camping at Mike and Pam Steffen’s place in Salt Flat, Texas for a couple of days, swapping lies, playing with their herd of dogs, target shooting, and admiring the star filled sky above us at night. In another life, that would be called goofing off, but in the laid […]

Rainy Days

It seems like we had more rain and cold weather this past summer than we did sunshine. October hasn’t changed that. While we were in Celina we had several rainy days, and though we got a break while we drove back to Elkhart Thursday, it started raining just about the time we finished getting set […]

A lot of people have asked us if we will be transferring our solar panels from our bus conversion to the Winnebago diesel pusher motorhome we just bought. Quite a few have been surprised when we told them we don’t plan on doing so. Terry and I have discussed it at length, and we just […]
