As I wrote in Wednesday’s blog, according to PPL Motorhomes’ website, our Winnebago has been listed as Sale Pending for over a week. I got a call from the sales manager on Wednesday afternoon telling me that the buyers had their own mechanic come in and look the rig over, and that he was not […]

Today is a very special day at our house because it is Miss Terry’s birthday. And though it may be her birthday, the rest of the world, and especially me, got a wonderful present when she was born. Happy birthday my love, I’m going to try very hard to make sure you have a wonderful […]

If you live close to the ocean, rust is a fact of life. And you don’t have to get something wet for it to be susceptible. It’s amazing how much damage the salt air can do to metal if you don’t keep up with maintenance. One of the big selling points when we bought our […]

Once again we were up at 7 a.m. When will this madness stop? I’m telling you, I need an intervention! After checking e-mail and visiting with Julie and Doug Livingston for a few minutes when they came over to tell us goodbye, we left Pioneer RV Park in Hermiston about 10 a.m. and headed west […]

After a quick run to the post office in Gillette yesterday we returned to the Cam-Plex, hooked our Ford Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and made ready to get out of Dodge… err Gillette. But first we had to have the requisite goodbye hugs from Greg and Jan, who were also hitting the […]

This is our last day in Gillette and I think we’re both ready to get the wheels rolling to someplace new. Not that Gillette is a bad place, it’s actually a nice little town, and all of the people we have met in the stores and restaurants have been very friendly. But hitch itch is […]

My Kind Of RV Trip

Since it was only 113 miles to our destination, we woke up about 8 a.m. yesterday and had a relaxed morning, checking e-mail and reading a couple of blogs before we started getting ready for our move down to Tucson. When I turned on our TireTraker tire pressure monitor it indicated that the Winnebago’s left […]

Hot Stuff!

It’s getting way too hot here in Apache Junction for this kid. It was in the mid-90s yesterday and starting Monday we’re looking at triple digit temperatures for the next five days. I really want to be out of here. Unfortunately, while we will be leaving Wednesday morning, we’re headed for Tucson for at least […]

Since we were moving less than six miles yesterday, we figured it would be an easy morning. Yeah, right, like that’s going to happen! I did my usual walk around the motorhome that I do every day when we’re traveling. Even though it was a short drive, it’s always a good idea, to be sure […]

Mind Your Manners

I’ve had three e-mails in the last two days from RVers writing about campground problems that make me wonder how so many people never learned basic manners as children. So today, let’s talk about how to be a good neighbor. Most RVers are pretty laid back, but living in a campground is much like living […]
