With the season upon us, I thought this would be a good time to revisit some thoughts I have shared in the past on popular snowbirds roosts that we and other RVers seek out when the weather up north starts to get cold. One of the first things new snowbirds have to learn is that […]

I Miss My Wife

Miss Terry and I had such a wonderful marriage for so long that some people even said we were codependent. If you saw one of us, you can bet the other was close at hand. Living in a motorhome for over 17 years, any time I looked up she was right there. I really miss […]

I get a lot of e-mails from readers asking for recommendations or advice about various RV products. Over the years many manufacturers have provided us with products to test. Some of them we have liked a lot and others we have passed on for something we consider to be better. So I thought today I […]

Just In Time!

We decided it was time for another road trip yesterday, so we left the Daytona Beach RV Resort about 10 AM, ran a couple of errands, and then drove down to New Smyrna Beach. This is fast becoming one of our favorite towns in Florida. We spent a while browsing in some shops, drove across […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we weren’t sure if we would leave Saturday or Sunday to begin our trip south, depending on the weather. There were a couple of systems coming through the region that were going to bring some rain, but none of them looked to be very large. It started raining hard […]

It’s been a busy weekend here at Elkhart Campground. The IRV2 rally is going on this week and the place is packed. I wanted to give them some door prizes for the rally, but I wasn’t able to find anybody who knew who was in charge of anything. I’ll probably go to the office today […]

Always Listen To Nick

I got emails from two different readers yesterday thanking me for mentioning several times that we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full, and whenever I park the motorhome for more than an overnight stay, I like to go into a campground with a full tank of fuel. One couple is somewhere […]

There Are Benefits

Let’s be honest, when it comes to friends, I’m pretty high maintenance. Especially if you know anything about maintaining anything mechanical. Just ask my buddy Greg White. Years ago his wife Jan mentioned that he could fix just about anything, and 24 hours later I had him standing in a pool of cold water on […]

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 […]

The comfortable temperatures of mid to upper 70s that we’ve been enjoying for the last week or so in Elkhart have gone away and for the last two days it’s been in the upper 80s. And it looks like we will be in the mid to upper 80s for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, the basement […]
