A Lot Accomplished

It rained hard here at Elkhart Campground early Tuesday morning, the sound of the rain pounding on the roof of our motorhome waking us up. But by 10 AM or so it had stopped and we had cloudy skies overhead. After talking a little bit about scuba diving when she visited us the other day, […]

Spring Cleaning

Sometimes I wonder how two people who live in a 40 foot motorhome can accumulate so much stuff, but somehow we manage to do it. And every so often we have to go through everything and declutter. It’s that time of year, and Miss Terry has been doing some spring cleaning, throwing out stuff and […]

Frustration City

Yesterday was a busy day, much of it spent in Frustration City. You know that place, right? It’s where all of the bureaucrats and idiots of the world work. And I talked to a bunch of them! I get my medical care through the Veterans Administration (VA) Health System, and my primary care provider is […]

Will It Ever End?

Will the wind and cold ever end? This is Arizona, darn it, not Minnesota! The wind has been rocking our motorhome so much you would think a couple of 20-somethings on their honeymoon were inside, not a couple of old farts like us. And that only adds to the cold. How cold is it? It […]

A Long Traffic Jam

After spending most of Monday morning on the telephone arguing with the idiots at Temecula Valley Hospital to get them to release my records to the VA hospital in Tucson that they were supposed to do last week, they finally got off their lazy butts and did something and sent the records late on Monday, […]

Hurry Up And Wait

We spent yesterday morning at the VA hospital and accomplished absolutely nothing. But that was because of no failing on the part of the VA. Even after jumping through all the privacy hoops they insisted on, the dweebs at the hospital in Temecula, California failed to send the records from my time there. So with […]

And The Madness Begins

It’s Black Friday, let the madness begin! This is the official start of the Christmas shopping season, and my official boycott of all big box stores until all of the nonsense is over. Until January 1st I do everything I can to avoid the crowds and insanity driven by American consumerism. It has nothing to […]

We Made It To Tucson

Before I get started today, I want to wish all of you Happy Thanksgiving. Whether you’re sharing the day with family back home or with friends in an RV park somewhere, I hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and good food. We were up early yesterday morning, a habit that we really […]

And Away We Go

The first order of business yesterday morning was to call the VA hospital in Tucson to see when I can get in for a follow-up to my hospital stay here in Temecula, California. It being a holiday week, I didn’t think they’d be able to do anything for me very quickly. But after I spoke […]

Goodbye Tucson

Our time in Tucson is over and today we leave Voyager RV Resort for Apache Junction. We’ve been here over three weeks and during that time we have not had one day to just chill out and relax. It’s been a whirlwind of annual medical appointments, working the Escapees Escapade rally, more medical stuff, and […]
