I love trivia and finding out oddball facts, especially about some of the places where we travel. So today, just for fun, I thought I’d share 5 Weird Things You Never Knew. Mount Rushmore, polygamy and the KKK – There are few things that make a statement about America’s power and glory more than Mount […]

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 […]

Today let’s discuss problems in the bedroom. Don’t worry. I’m not talking about any difficulties Miss Terry and I have in the boudoir. For a couple of old farts, we seem to manage okay. But apparently not everybody is so lucky, based on some of the emails I’ve been getting lately. The other day I […]

I have often heard the saying that a stranger is just a friend you’ve never met before. I’m not sure if that’s true or not because according to Miss Terry, I’ve never met a stranger.

Here is another story from the Nick Happens file. The RV lifestyle has so much to offer.

We were always on the lookout for funny and oddball mailboxes as we traveled the country in our motorhome, and I’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. Some of my RVing friends have been generous enough to share the mailboxes they find in their travels, too. Seeing these, I think you will […]

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 […]

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. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]

After reading my blog post about using medical marijuana to control my back pain, I got an email from a longtime reader telling me that her husband suffered with pain for many years until his doctor suggested medical marijuana 12 years ago. Since they live in Colorado it was easy to get, and just like […]

Any experienced RVer will tell you that one thing you have to take along with you on every trip is Jell-O. No, not the kind you eat, though that’s pretty good, too. I’m talking about the kind of Jell-O you need when plans change. In the RV lifestyle, nothing is ever set in concrete. You […]
