Note: This is a blog post from 2011 that I dusted off and updated because it answers questions I still get asked today. I received an e-mail from a reader a while back who is in the planning stages before going fulltime, asking about the annual costs of fulltime RVing. This is probably the most […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. I have three 12-volt batteries in my motorhome to power the things inside […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things.

I got a lot of positive feedback from a recent blog post about the years I spent running small town newspapers so I thought I’d share another one. This story is also related to when I was publishing a weekly newspaper in northern Arizona’s White Mountains and an area east of the small town of […]

Note: This is from a blog I wrote back in 2016, but it is in response to a question I have received many times since then, including just this week. I get a lot of e-mails from RVers and wannabe RVers. Most of the time they are nice folks with legitimate questions and I try […]

Worse By The Day

When I went on a rant about the cavalier attitude of so many over the coronavirus a while back, I said I reserved my right to climb back on my soapbox, and here I am again. The spread of Covid-19 is getting worse by the day, as have the number of casualties. Here in Florida […]

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 […]

She Calls it Piddling

When she doesn’t have any big project to do and is just catching up on little chores around the house, researching things on the Internet, or whatever, Miss Terry calls it piddling. I’m never sure if I should stand back and let her do her thing, or go to the drugstore and buy some Depends, […]

As I write this, a little before midnight on Wednesday, I keep thinking about the fact that when I wrote my blog 24 hours ago, Hurricane Dorian was bearing down on us and we didn’t know what the night might bring. What it brought was a lot of wind and a lot of rain, but […]

More than once I have had people ask me what fulltime RVers do to occupy their time when not actually on the road traveling. So I dusted off a blog post from 2015 that covers some of the many hobbies we and other fulltimers found to keep ourselves busy and out of trouble. What do […]
