When we first started spending our winters in Florida, even before we bought our house, people kept telling us about how bad this region was for hurricanes and asking us if we weren’t afraid of getting caught in one. No, not at all. In our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we dealt with tornadoes, wildfires, […]

With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

It’s a fact of life that wherever you do your RVing you are occasionally going to have to deal with bad weather. We have been in monsoons in the Arizona desert that can fill dry riverbeds with raging floodwaters in a matter of seconds, more than once we have had tornadoes touch down within a […]

Today the high will be just over 60, and depending on which weatherman you choose to believe, it will be […]

That old Boy Scout motto comes in handy in the RV lifestyle, just as it does in the rest of the world. Early one morning this week, the campground host here at the Show Low Elks campground came to our door to tell us that a construction crew had broken a sewer line near the […]

There are a lot of reasons I think Al Gore needs a mouth transplant, and his theory of global warming is just one of them. Spend a day or two here in northern Indiana this time of year, and I bet you’ll agree that global warming is an urban legend. Damn, it’s cold! Our Winnebago […]

A cold front dipping south brought very strong winds to Apache Junction, Arizona yesterday afternoon and evening. At our spot here in Pacific Manor, we are on an end site, with a six foot high block wall on one side and the rear, but even with that our old bus was rocking on its air […]
