My friend John Huggins from Living the RV Dream is a lot more technically inclined than I am, and the other night when we were having dinner with John and his pretty wife Kathy, we were talking about how far technology has come in the 15 years we’ve been fulltime RVers. No, we didn’t always […]

Our Early Bird arrival day is tomorrow, but we’ve already been busy parking dozens of RVs here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. They started rolling in yesterday morning and it was nonstop all day long. I don’t know exactly how many rigs came in but I would estimate somewhere around 50. Most […]

Last Sunday, there was one of those marathons on one of the satellite TV channels, where they play one episode after another of the same show. In this case, it was How The Lottery Changed My Life, in which they showcased people who had won anywhere from one to hundreds of millions of dollars in […]

We had originally planned to stay in Kingman, Arizona until Monday, visiting my old friend Mike Howard. But a combination of Mike not feeling very well, terrible cell phone and internet service, and a scheduling mix up changed our plans. We had been in contact with the marketing folks at the Grand Canyon Railway in […]

Yesterday we found three neat places away from the Las Vegas Strip to explore, and our friend Jan White got to check one more thing off of her personal bucket list.  My pal Jan may seem like your average retired RVing lady, but underneath that peaceful exterior beats the heart of an Annie Oakley! So […]

When I checked my e-mail yesterday morning, I had a message from Verizon Wireless that an update for my Blackberry Storm was available, which was supposed to be the latest and greatest thing since sliced bread. So, being the trusting soul I am, I plugged my phone into my computer, logged onto the Verizon website, […]

Yesterday we had what my friend Greg White calls a Don Quixote Day. We were up and out of bed early because we had a lot to get done, we worked hard all day, and we didn’t accomplish a damn thing! We have a Magnum Energy 2,000 watt pure sine wave inverter in our MCI […]

We were talking to a couple who are considering extended RV travel, and one of their concerns was safety. They have heard urban legends about RVers being attacked while they spend the night at places like Wal-Mart, small town parks, and rest areas. We assured them that those kind of things almost never happen and not to […]
