We originally planned to leave Santa Fe RV Park here in Apache Junction today and to go back to Tucson to get settled in for more stuff at the V.A. hospital next week. But we decided to extend for two more nights to give me time to get the next issue of the paper finished. […]

We Like Quiet Days

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

When I saw the above on a sign in front of a business yesterday, I knew exactly how they feel. It’s been cold, windy and rainy for days now, as it has been for much of our summer, and we’re getting very tired of the gloom. Our original plan was to leave the Long Beach […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we needed to find out if we could move to Countryside RV Resort for two weeks or if we would have to go to Plan B, since our month here at Patio Gardens is up today. As it turns out, we’re staying with Plan A. I called Thousand Trails […]

Today is my daughter Tiffany’s 31st birthday, and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was strapping her car seat into the back seat of my Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the hospital. Now she’s a grown woman with two little girls of her own. Where do the years go? […]

There’s a reason fulltime RVers write their plans in Jello. Because we never know when anything from weather, to a mechanical breakdown, a health issue, or simply a whim will find us making last minute changes. Isn’t it a wonderful lifestyle having that kind of freedom? Sometimes the Jello stirring is major and sometimes it’s […]

How Can We Afford It?

When I wrote in yesterday’s blog that that just like swallows returning to Capistrano every year, fuel prices are going up right on schedule, I should have added that also right on schedule, people are starting to freak out and say this may be the year they have to hang up the keys. I heard […]

And I’m The Bad Guy?

A few days ago I reported in a blog about Thousand Trails that several members had reported that their reservations have been shortened from three weeks to two with no notice from the company. These were on reservations that they had booked online and received confirmations on, some more than three months ago. That left […]

The Art Of Being Lazy

I spent yesterday practicing being lazy, and I think I’m getting pretty good at it. I did not do one bit of work all day long. I could get used to this life. Well, at least until the money runs out and I have to go back to work. But I think if we really […]

Trip To Tillamook

Apparently, something I ate Wednesday evening had onions in it, which I am very allergic to, and by the time we got home from the restaurant, I was sick. I had an absolutely miserable night, one of those nights where you wonder if surviving until daylight is really worth it. 🙁 I think I got […]
