While spending some time in Albuquerque, New Mexico a few years ago, several readers urged us to visit Tinkertown, a short drive into the Sandia Mountains on the northeast side of the city. In fact, there were so many people suggesting it that we had to check it out to see what all the fuss […]

I know, in this day and age we are not supposed to call people names. But sometimes you just have to. Comedian Bill Engvall made a fortune with his Here’s Your Sign gig, so I guess if he could point out the stupid things people say and do, I’ll give it a try and see […]

Tucked away on a narrow two-lane road in Sandwich, Massachusetts we discovered the wonderful Heritage Museum and Gardens, a combination art museum, old car museum, museum of New England history, and delightfully landscaped gardens.

It’s late and my new meds are making me sleepy, so I’m just going to post five recent questions and my answers for today’s blog. Q. I keep hearing that we need to buy a new RV because most campgrounds have a rule not to allow RVs over ten years old. Is this going to […]

More than once I have had people ask me what fulltime RVers do to occupy their time when not actually on the road traveling. So I dusted off a blog post from 2015 that covers some of the many hobbies we and other fulltimers found to keep ourselves busy and out of trouble. What do […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. We are new to the RV life and not sure what the accepted […]

The thermometer has been flirting with the 100 degree mark, which is a reason a lot of people stay out of Florida in the summer. The good news is that there is less traffic on the roads, and stores and restaurants are not very crowded. The bad news is that it’s too bloody hot to […]
