I love hearing from blog readers, and in an average week I will get well over 100 personal emails. Many of those emails have questions about RVing or other things I’ve written about, and I’m always happy to answer to the best of my ability. If I don’t know the answer, I try to refer […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

We have always loved exploring small town museums and have spent many delightful hours doing so over the years. Maybe it’s some kind of voyeurism to be able to look into the lives of people you never knew, in a community you’ve never been to before. We always come away feeling like we know some […]

After my newest book, Big Lake Fugitive, came out on Thursday of last week, I planned to take the weekend off and then get started on the next John Lee Quarrels book on Monday. But that didn’t happen, and I blame Miss Terry. I love all kinds of research, and one of my favorites is […]

In a blog post the other day titled Finally Got It Wet, I wrote about our first outing with our Bennington pontoon boat. I also shared that while our time on the water was very nice, we ran into a problem once we had the boat loaded onto the scissor trailer and inside our garage. […]

I spent most of yesterday being very busy doing not much of anything at all, if that makes any sense. If you’ve ever been an employer, you know what I’m talking about because you’ve probably seen employees do that more than once. I had written the first chapter of my next John Lee Quarrels book […]

I loved history even back when I was a young boy in school, and I was always asking questions. So many questions that I think I frustrated my teachers sometimes. I remember once when I asked two or three questions about whatever the lesson was that day, my teacher told me that I had a […]

I got an email yesterday from a someone who has only been RVing for about three months and was incensed because they went to a campground here in Florida and discovered it was completely full due to spring break and some big local festival that was going on at the same time. The campground owner […]

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I used to go to family reunions just to pick up girls. But hey, if it happens it happens, right? I know, you’re asking yourself what the heck this has to do with RVing but trust me, I’ll get there. And even if I don’t, remember that […]

Cousin Rocky is one of those guys who is interested in all kinds of things and always has a lot of irons in the fire. He was a private pilot, he’s a musician, he’s into astronomy, history, genealogy, and probably a lot of other stuff I don’t know about. Rocky is also an accomplished sailor […]
