After 17 years of fulltiming and 17 Christmases living in a motorhome, this will be our first Christmas in our new home. I have to be honest, it feels kind of strange. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. Kind of like learning to flush the toilet with a handle instead of with a foot […]

It’s Almost Over

Well, it won’t be long now. In just a couple more days the mad rush to the stores to buy a bunch of stuff people don’t really want so that you can give it to them for Christmas, (and in return they’ll buy you a bunch of stuff you don’t want), will be over. Of […]

With Christmas coming fast, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. We use, or have used, all of the products ourselves and feel confident in recommending them to you. Midland Two Way Radios – With over a 30 […]

We Made It To Tucson

Before I get started today, I want to wish all of you Happy Thanksgiving. Whether you’re sharing the day with family back home or with friends in an RV park somewhere, I hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and good food. We were up early yesterday morning, a habit that we really […]

We are having a great time hanging out here at Nancy Kissack‘s place in Atwater, California. A couple of days ago we rebuilt four security light fixtures on the front of her garage and installed an automatic dusk till dawn switch for them. Not wanting to overstay our welcome and looking for something else we […]

Yesterday we got to see a lot of breathtaking views, made some new friends, and had seafood for dinner. It just doesn’t get any better than that! I’ve been in every state in the country except Delaware, which is small and easy to miss, to England, Central America, and Southeast Asia. But for my money, […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

Eureka To Brookings

We had a short trip in terms of miles yesterday, but it wasn’t a fast one. We left the Elks lodge campground in Eureka, California, stopped for fuel, and then took U.S. Highway 101 north for 115 miles. As it is through much of northern California, some parts of the highway are divided four lane […]

It’s Like Radar

Do you know that radar that all mothers seem to have that alerts them when their kids are getting into mischief and need stopped? I’m pretty sure Greg White has it. Our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage has one fuel tank that can be filled from either side of the motorhome. At some point before we bought […]

Yesterday started way too early for us but it was worth it because we had a very long day filled with a lot of fun ahead of us. We left Elkhart Campground about 9 a.m. and didn’t get back until after 8:30 p.m., but boy, did we make some good memories in that time! When […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]

Bob and Gita Patel, owners of Elkhart Campground, love it when a big rally comes to the fairgrounds in Goshen, some 30 miles south of here. Being the largest and best campground in the area, many RVers come here first to hang out for a week or two before a rally starts, and a lot […]

A while back our friends Chris Dunphy & Cherie Ve Ard from Technomadia contacted me to invite me to check out a new project they’ve been helping develop called RVillage, but at the time I was involved in so many different things that I never did really did get to it. Since then the project […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we planned to spend the day at home getting some work done, and I had hoped to figure out how to insert the page numbers on Terry’s cookbook Miss Terry’s Kitchen to have it ready to submit for a print version, as well as a couple of my travel […]

As I have mentioned a few times recently, I’ve been busy working on a new book formatting project that has taken quite a while to get finished. Well, I finally wrapped it up Thursday night, and I’m excited to tell you that we have a new author in the family! That’s right. In response to […]

Terry’s Oat & Flax Bread Have I mentioned lately that I love to make bread? I’m not sure where that comes from, unless you figure in the kneading as a form of therapy, and releasing one’s self of frustrations? I try to come up with a healthier version of bread than some of the store […]

We were up bright and early again yesterday morning, a nasty habit we’re going to have to work hard to break. The inch of snow that had been predicted did not show up, and we were both relieved to see that. But it was still darned cold, and Terry flipped the engine heater on to […]

We spent yesterday driving along U.S. Highway 90, which parallels the Gulf beaches here in Mississippi. The eye of the Hurricane Katrina came ashore here, back in 2005, and decimated the region. We wanted to see how much damage was still evident, and what had changed in the wake of that disaster. It was an […]

We did a lot of research before we ever left our hometown in Arizona to become fulltime RVers, and one of the things that came out of that research was our decision to join the Passport America discount camping club. Our membership has served us well in our 12+ years on the road. In fact, we […]

We left Eagle’s Landing in Holt, Florida about 10 a.m. yesterday and drove 20 miles west on U.S. Highway 90 to Milton, where we met Larry and Melissa Beahm, and their friends Art and Barbara Johnson, for brunch. If you were at our Eastern Gypsy Gathering in Elkhart last summer, you will remember Larry and […]
