With Christmas less than a week away, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. I use, or have used, all of the products myself. Many of these items were listed in a blog I wrote several years ago, […]

Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, or Greg White, or Ron Speidel for what […]

In a blog I wrote exactly one month ago today titled Lots To See And Do, I reported that while coming across Interstate 86 in New York the road was so rough that one of the hubcaps had bounced off the dual wheels on our motorhome. I said that when we got back to Elkhart […]

How Hot Is It?

It was so hot here in Elkhart, Indiana yesterday that I saw two trees fighting over a dog! Now that’s hot! It was 103° here yesterday afternoon. The basement air conditioner in our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage usually keeps it cold enough to hang meat in here, but yesterday, even with the curtains closed over our […]

Yesterday was a slow day here at the Blue Ox factory campground in Pender, Nebraska. But I don’t know if they have a lot of busy days in Pender. The folks we have met here in town same to move at a more laid-back pace, which is just fine with us. We were awakened early […]

Well, it took longer than expected, and we made a very nice donation to the economy of Redlands, California before we got out of town, but we’re back on the road. The first thing yesterday morning the guys at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center were hard at work on our Winnebago again, pushing to […]

102°!

That’s right, it was 102° here in the East Mesa/Apache Junction area yesterday. And it’s supposed to be even hotter today! This is no place for a chubby RVer like me to be. 🙁 We spent most of the day at home yesterday, trying to avoid the heat. We have been pleased to discover that […]

We must have been really tired Saturday night, because sometime Sunday morning Miss Terry got up and turned on the basement air conditioner because it was getting warm inside the motorhome, and then came back to bed. I was vaguely aware of it and snuggled up against her, and the next thing I knew she […]

Freezing In Tucson

The winter storm that rolled through over the weekend is still hanging on. Last night the temperature here at the Pima County Fairgrounds dropped down to 31° and the Catalina and Santa Rita Mountains surrounding Tucson are wearing a mantle of snow. Meanwhile, it’s 82° at Marathon Key, Florida. Tell me again, why am I […]

On To Tucson

One of the things I like about an RV rally is all the new products and services we discover. Our Yuma rally was no exception; in addition to getting our motorhome weighed by Paul and Doris Cunningham from RV Weigh Portable Scales, I also got to meet Wade and Jacqueline Weiss from Wade Maid Premium […]
