The wind was averaging 40 – 45 miles per hour yesterday here in the White Mountains of Arizona, and at midday two gusts were recorded at 60 miles per hour. We’re parked next to my daughter’s house and the back half of the Winnebago is sheltered by the building but we’re still feeling the effects. […]

Yesterday was a short travel day for us. In fact, one of the shortest we’ve had in a very long time. We enjoyed our time at The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Florida, and I took a photo of our Winnebago in Peter and Connie Bradish”s lot before I started unhooking our campground utilities in preparation […]

We’re leaving The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Florida today and are going to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, which is actually in Clermont. We owe a big thank you to our friends Peter and Connie Bradish for hosting us on their lot here for the last few days. We really appreciate your hospitality, dear friends. […]

Okay, I Give Up

Okay, I give up. It’s obvious that God doesn’t want me to watch the space shuttle being launched. Yesterday’s liftoff was canceled due to a fuel leak, and now NASA officials say it will be the end of November, at the earliest, before the shuttle will take off. We’ll be gone from the Space Coast […]

It started raining late Wednesday night, and it rained hard most of the night here in Titusville. By morning the rain was really coming down, and NASA postponed the space shuttle launch again. Now they are aiming for this afternoon. The many delays may be frustrating for those who are waiting to see the space […]

We had already planned our trip to Titusville and The Great Outdoors RV Resort when we learned that space shuttle Discovery was going to be launched for its final mission on Monday, November 1. So that was like icing on the cake. Since Titusville is right across the Indian River from the John F. Kennedy […]

None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]

Yesterday was a girls’ day out for Terry and our friend Ann Moran, while Ann’s husband Tim and I had a boys’ day in. It worked out well for everybody. We had told our friends that we’d come down to their place in Rockledge about mid-morning, and spend the day together. The plan was that […]

Can you believe Christmas is coming up in just over a month? Where does the time go? One minute you’re toasting the New Year and singing Auld Lang Syne, a week or two later you’re watching fireworks on Independence Day, and the next thing you know, they’re ringing bells in front of WalMart and you’re […]

We had a surprisingly quiet night at the Georgia State Welcome Center, and were on the road by 8:30 a.m., which is probably a new record for us, but we had a lot of miles to cover. We had a little technical issue I wanted to have looked at, so I called the Camping World […]
