The big storms that have been sweeping across the country causing problems for people from Texas to the Midwest are supposed to be here sometime this afternoon or evening, and the weatherman is predicting straight-line winds of up to 68 miles per hour, heavy rain, and the possibility of tornadoes. We have a couple of […]

It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my Nick Happens stories, which are a collection of my adventures and misadventures over the years. Today I’ll tell you about the time I took a walk on the wild side. Before we became fulltime RVers I owned the White Mountain Weekly newspaper in Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona, […]

When I was a kid I always heard adults say that the older you get, the faster time goes by. I never understood that because it just didn’t make sense. A minute has 60 seconds in it, an hour has 60 minutes, a day has 24 hours, and a week has 7 days. It’s the […]

When I was young man I used to be involved in all kinds of shooting sports, including trap shooting. I was never great at it, but I was able to bust a few clay pigeons and I always had fun. Over time life got in the way and I stopped competing in matches but still […]

Almost as soon as we started fulltiming other RVers told us that we had to stop at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas for dinner. If you’re not familiar with this roadside icon, the Big Texan is a famous steakhouse that has been serving travelers and locals alike, since 1960. The restaurant is […]

We were on the go all day yesterday, from the time we got out of bed until sometime close to 8 PM, when we finally managed to settle into our recliners and relax in front of the boob tube for a while. I started the day with an appointment with Doctor Rob Kent at Coastal […]

It’s been a while since I’ve run a blog featuring some of the questions I receive and my answers to them. While I try to answer all questions individually, from time to time I find some that are worth sharing here. Q. I am going to be 70 in July and my wife turned 68 […]

Fulltime RVers and snowbirds, or anybody who travels a lot, know that saying goodbye is always the hardest part of going back to visit the people you love. And so it was when it was time for us to leave Arizona for the trip home. The good thing is that the highway runs in both […]

A Juggling Act

Life is all about choices, and sometimes making those choices is a real juggling act. Every time we come to Arizona, we have so many friends and family members we want to see that there is never enough time. Especially when we make a quick unplanned trip like this one. Yesterday we drove down to […]

Note: This is an updated post that I thought some of you might find interesting. It is based upon nothing more than my own personal opinion. In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the […]
