We were up before 8 o’clock again yesterday morning because Rob Gambol from Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center was coming to town for an Alfa rally and was going to stop by to install the PacBrake on our motorhome. As it turned out, we could have slept in. Rob called to tell me he […]

I was having trouble getting yesterday’s blog to post, so it was 2 a.m. before I finally got to bed, which is not uncommon  when we are sitting still, but when we’re traveling. I try to turn in as soon as I post the blog at midnight local time. We hadn’t slept good the night […]

Readers have been asking me for an update on how we like our new to us Winnebago Ultimate Advantage motorhome, now that we have lived and traveled in it for almost six months, as compared to the MCI bus conversion we built and lived in for over eight years. Overall, we are both very happy […]

I think the old Willy Nelson song with the above title must be the theme song for fulltime RVers, and I bet a lot of us hum or sing it to ourselves when we pull out of a campground. It sure brought a smile to my face to do so yesterday morning! It was 19 […]
