Ken Harris of Liverpool, New York sent this to us quite some time ago and we got a chuckle out of it! You know you’re RV trash when: *They post signs at WalMart saying your RV is not welcome! *You call the garbage cans at rest areas “dump stations.” *You “found” most of your RV […]

I have heard from quite a few people about the coronavirus and how they are reacting to it. It seems like some people are ignoring it completely, thinking it’s just the media crying wolf again, while other people without any symptoms are self-quarantining themselves in their RVs or homes and avoiding the public as much […]

I think things are finally starting to get back to normal here. Or at least as close to normal as anything ever is for me. I think the worst of our colds are gone, though Terry and I both have coughs that seem to want to hang on forever. And I finally think we are […]

It seems like you can’t go onto any RV internet forum without seeing discussion after discussion about which toilet paper to use in RVs and what kind of chemicals to use in RV holding tanks. These debates go on and on and you would think nothing is more important than your potty. What always surprises […]

It seems like some days fuel prices are climbing even faster than the mercury in an Arizona thermometer in July. RVers only have two choices, pay it or park it. Most have no intention of getting off the road, but with a little effort and planning, hopefully, we can lessen the impact of today’s outrageous […]

Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! When you’re as old and fat as me, nothing is ever quick. But today I thought I’d share three different quick stories from the Nick Happens files, which are a collection of my adventures and misadventures over the years. *** In our first trip in our motorhome, […]

I’ve get a lot of e-mails from blog readers and a surprising number of them are from RVers writing about campground problems that make me wonder how so many people never learned basic manners as children. So today, let’s talk about how to be a good neighbor. Most RVers are pretty laid back, but living […]
