With all the paperwork signed for putting our Winnebago motorhome on consignment at PPL MotorhomesĀ in Houston, we were ready to get out of Dodge. Well, at least out of Houston. The directions we had been given to come to PPL had taken us into town on Interstate10 to the Interstate 610 Loop and then south […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about coming home to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, spending time in our Winnebago motorhome while we waited for the power to be restored, and showed you some photos of the damage in our little subdivision here on the Intercoastal Waterway in central Florida. Today we’re going to do […]

Make It Your Own

I heard from someone yesterday who had some questions about the Winnebago motorhome we have for sale. She said she had looked at all of the photos we have posted of it, including the upgrades we have done, and her concern was that those upgrades may have lowered the value of the motorhome. She said […]

Something that Terry and I learned very quickly after buying our house is that customer service is sadly lacking in this area. Businesses will make you all kinds of promises, but when it actually comes to following through on them, forget it. Just because you have an appointment doesn’t mean they will keep it. They […]

That Would Explain It

Thank you to the many blog readers who responded to my story about the phantom power showing on the voltmeters in our Winnebago motorhome, even after I disconnected all the batteries while putting it in storage. Quite a few of you suggested that the small solar panel on the roof might be giving us the […]

Almost A Miracle?

Do you remember the old Bible story about how Jesus fed the multitudes with just a few loaves of bread and two fish? How did he make so little last for so long? I guess the only explanation was that it was a miracle. It seems that we have a couple of much smaller miracles […]

And Away We Go!

Unless something catastrophic and totally unexpected happens overnight, we will be on the road this morning, headed west. We still have to move the food from the refrigerator in the house to one in the motorhome, I have to unhook my computer and take it out to the RV, and then we are off like […]

Okay, Plan B

You have heard me say it before and I guarantee you will hear me say it again – always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to have a Plan C and a Plan D, too, just in case. You never know when they will come in handy. Our original plan (Plan A) was […]

Maybe It’s Jealous

Thanks to everybody for your suggestions about the problem with our bedroom slide out. Yesterday morning I went outside and ran the living room slide in and out with no problems and tested the leveling jacks, and they worked fine. But the bedroom slide still wouldn’t do anything. Then, just to see, I started the […]

The Best Laid Plans

Something I learned early in my Army days was that you can plan an operation down to the last detail and spend weeks talking strategy, but it can all go out the window the minute you put boots on the ground. That’s why you should always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to […]
