We were up bright and early yesterday morning because Dish Network was supposed to send a tech out to figure out why the reception on our bedroom TV was so fuzzy. We knew he would arrive sometime between 8 a.m. and noon, so we were up well before then to be ready for his arrival. […]

Is it over? Can I come out now? Have all those crazy people maxed out their credit cards buying stuff nobody really needed and gone home? No, now they’re all back at the stores returning all the stuff they didn’t need or want that somebody else maxed out their credit cards buying! I’m going back […]

The wind was blowing so hard Friday night and yesterday morning that I’m surprised our motorhome didn’t set off seismographs in California! It never let up for hours, and you could almost get seasick just sitting still, the motorhome was rocking so hard. We decided that we were going to skip the Memorial Day parade […]

We have met some wonderful people in our years on the road, and it’s always a treat to make new friends or to put a face to a name on a mailing label in our subscription base. We got to do that here in Bremerton. Longtime subscriber and faithful blog reader Dona Clayton lives just […]

I’ve never been a fan of either Dish Network or DirecTV. I’ve had both services at one time or another, and am currently a Dish customer. As a fulltime RVer, I have had a number of frustrating encounters with the customer service people at both companies.. However, I believe that when a company goes the […]

My wife is a very hard woman to shop for, because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a […]

Yeah, I know, you watch TV in your RV all the time. I do, too. In fact, I have for over twelve years now. But according to the dweebs at Dish Network, you can’t watch TV in an RV. Who knew? In Monday’s blog, titled You Win Some, You Lose Some, I wrote that Dish […]

In spite of noisy trucks coming and going, we slept soundly at the Georgia Welcome Center, and felt refreshed when we woke up yesterday morning. Before we hit the road, we turned on our Onan Quiet Diesel generator, and while Terry brewed herself a pot of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, checked e-mail, […]
