After everything that happened to us in the last week, when I got up early Saturday morning to talk to somebody at Rush Truck Center in Jacksonville, Florida, where we had been towed in the night before, I wasn’t feeling very optimistic. But I had a Facebook message saying that my nephew, Jack Russell, who […]

Let’s Talk Tires

It seems like you can’t go onto any RV internet forum without seeing discussion after discussion about which toilet paper to use in RVs and what kind of chemicals to use in RV holding tanks. These debates go on and on and you would think nothing is more important than your potty. What always surprises […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

I get a lot of e-mails from readers asking for recommendations or advice about various RV products. Over the years many manufacturers have provided us with products to test.

That’s what somebody told me just last week when he asked my advice about his motorhome’s eight year old tires and I advised him to replace them, even though they had a lot of tread left and looked good. “You may know a lot about fulltime RVing, but you don’t know everything, Nick. These tires […]

As I have shared with you, recently Miss Terry has been in a purging state of mind, cleaning out all of the cupboards in the front end of the motorhome and getting rid of a lot of things that we no longer need or use, and outdated pantry items. But Nature abhors a vacuum, so […]

When we open our eyes every morning, none of us know if we’ll be around to go back to bed that night. Anything can happen, from a tiny piece of plaque breaking loose inside an artery and going to the heart, to a tree falling on our house, some fool texting or running a red […]

A while back our friends Chris Dunphy & Cherie Ve Ard from Technomadia contacted me to invite me to check out a new project they’ve been helping develop called RVillage, but at the time I was involved in so many different things that I never did really did get to it. Since then the project […]

Sometimes I get up in the morning, take a look at myself in the mirror and get really depressed. I’ll tell you what, if I had known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken a lot better care of myself. Roly poly may look cute in polyester, but naked, it’s just wrong. […]

Anybody familiar with writers and the writing process knows that while having a good imagination helps, we don’t have to search hard for things to write about. Usually all we have to do is observe and listen. And trust me, truth really is stranger than fiction! Comedian Bill Engvall has made a career out of […]
