Beating The Heat

Our garage is a metal building and the door faces west, which means in the afternoon it gets a direct blast from the sun, making it extremely hot. Hot enough that if you put your hand on the inside of the door, you’re not going to keep it there very long. We decided we wanted […]

Yesterday was the hottest day we’ve seen yet here at Elkhart Campground this year. I’m not sure where the thermometer topped out at, but twice during the day power went out in the whole area for a minute or so. I think everybody in northern Indiana was running every air conditioner they had, at full […]

Don’t Tell Anybody

Don’t tell anybody but I’ve been harboring a secret for a long time. I’m a fraud. I’ve made a career out of not knowing how to fix anything and relying on the kindness of strangers and Greg White, who is more than a little strange himself, whenever I need something fixed. But the truth is, […]

Warning, this blog contains content that may not be comfortable for the squeamish. We have been dealing with a nasty problem, and while we still don’t know what caused it, after a lot of trial and error, and even more frustration, we seem to have solved it. At least for now. We are very careful […]

A Dose Of Reality

I get a lot e-mails and letters to the editor and see posts online from people with limited funds who want to go fulltime and are looking at older, usually entry level RVs. And many of those RVs have been sitting a long time, which is why they are for sale at relatively low prices. […]

It’s Like Radar

Do you know that radar that all mothers seem to have that alerts them when their kids are getting into mischief and need stopped? I’m pretty sure Greg White has it. Our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage has one fuel tank that can be filled from either side of the motorhome. At some point before we bought […]

RV Upgrades

I’m always surprised when people say they wish they could make some change to their RV so it would better suit their lifestyle but won’t because they are afraid of reducing its resale value. I always tell them not to worry about that because whether they bought their rig new or used, it lost a […]

Congratulations to Virg Chomic, this week’s winner of an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake, the third book in my Big Lake mystery series! We had 142 entries this week, and stay tuned because you may be next week’s lucky winner. The wind blew hard all Saturday night and Sunday morning, and when I […]

A Windy Trip

After fulltiming for fourteen years now, you’d think that we’d have this thing down to a science by now. But for whatever reason, after we have been sitting still for a while, Terry and I never sleep well the night before setting out on a trip. It’s not nerves, we love traveling in our RV […]

We had dinner with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis yesterday, and since they have been bitten by the RVing bug, most of our conversation was about our lifestyle, and specifically what kind of RV they should be looking at, a motorhome or a fifth wheel trailer. This is a subject that is always good […]
