Any parent knows that we often don’t see the changes as our children grow up. But when we look back at old pictures we wonder how things changed so fast. Looking back over our 17+ years as fulltime RVers, I’m amazed at the changes we have seen. Most of them good, some not so good. […]

Finally!

In spite of all of our recent interruptions, we finally had a day to spend at home yesterday so we could get some writing and weaving done. And we got a lot accomplished! I cranked out about 4,600 words on my new book and by the end of the day I was a little over […]

The back seat of our Explorer is crammed full of stuff waiting to be dropped off at the Goodwill. I have no idea where it all comes from, but Terry was busy all day yesterday sorting and arranging things into piles to keep and piles to donate. And she tells me she’s hardly made dent […]

Years ago we met a couple who had been fulltiming for a year and were going to get off the road because they had seen everything there was to see in the entire country. And that included a trip to Alaska! The husband said they left Seattle June 1st and were back July 4th. “The […]

What do you do all day? It’s a question fulltime RVers get asked all the time. The real question is, how can we cram another twelve hours into every day to get all of the things done we want to? RVers have many hobbies that fit perfectly into our lifestyle, offering plenty of opportunities to […]

A hundred years ago when I was a young soldier I spent some time at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, teaching cadets which end of a rifle to point at the target and how to make it go bang. So yesterday when we drove to Annapolis, Maryland to visit the Naval Academy it […]

Kids And Kites

Yesterday was a day for kids and kites. I started out sitting outside with Greg and Jan and Greg’s cat Mister, who doesn’t know he’s a cat. I’m not sure what he thinks he is, but it’s definitely not a cat. I secretly think he’s really a dog in cat’s fur. I like cats about […]

It’s Not A Toy

It rained hard all of Tuesday night, sometimes just a light tapping on our motorhome’s roof and other times a downpour loud enough to wake the dead. When we woke up yesterday there were puddles of water everywhere around us, but the folks who had been parked next to us in a fifth wheel were […]

Happy Birthday Ed

When we left the boondocking area known as the Steps south of Lake Havasu City on Saturday, we not only missed the opportunity to see the fireworks show again, but we also didn’t get to wish Ed happy birthday, so I thought I’d do that now. I’ve never met Ed myself, but then again, none […]
