I get a lot of questions from blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. It’s been a while, but here are some of the latest. Q. A friend told me something about diesel fuel with red dye in it and […]

I can always trust my blog readers to set me straight when I make a mistake. Such was the case in yesterday’s blog, when I showed a picture of a Morris Minor pickup truck that I said someone had made from a car. Wayne Shunamon posted a comment saying that Morris Minor did indeed build […]

Don’t Even Try!

I couldn’t help but chuckle when friends who are on an RV trip to Alaska reported that Canadian inspectors at the border crossing found some undeclared booze they had hidden in their motorhome and confiscated it. Not because of their misadventure and the 4+ hours they spent getting their RV torn apart, but that anybody […]

It’s been cold and rainy here in northern Arizona. In fact, they had snow in Pinetop-Lakeside, about 10 miles from us. I highly disapprove. Besides a fair amount of sniveling, I’ve been spending the time working on my next book, Big Lake Reckoning. I wrote a little over 3,200 words yesterday, which takes me about […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Fulltime RVers come to […]

We once met a couple at the Escapees Rainbows End RV Park in Livingston, Texas who told us that after a year of fulltiming they were going home because they had seen it all and done it all and there was nothing left to do. They said they had been from border to border and […]

Years ago we met a couple who had been fulltiming for a year and were going to get off the road because they had seen everything there was to see in the entire country. And that included a trip to Alaska! The husband said they left Seattle June 1st and were back July 4th. “The […]

It Was A Good Week

We had a very good week at the Escapees Escapade rally this past week, in spite of the pouring rain, frigid temperatures, wind, and mud. Yeah, it was typical RV rally weather. Terry and I enjoyed seeing so many old and new friends who stopped by our vendor booth.   Here we have a combination […]

Several years ago we were hanging out at the Escapees Rainbows End RV park in Livingston, Texas when I met a fellow who told me they were hanging up the keys after just one year of fulltiming. I asked why, and he said, “Because we’ve seen everything there is to see and we’re burned out […]

That’s Your Excuse?

I was talking to my friend Michele Henry from Phoenix Commercial Paint yesterday and she was telling me that she’s had a couple of cancellations with the reason given that it is an election year, so people don’t want to spend any money right now. Huh? You planned to get your rig painted, but suddenly […]

Since we don’t have full hookups here at the Bremerton Elks lodge campground, Miss Terry has not been able to use the washer/dryer combo in our motorhome for a couple of weeks now, so Wednesday we set off looking for a laundromat. We got onto a street we had not traveled yet, and as we […]

First off today, I want to thank all of our veterans for giving us the freedom to enjoy this Independence Day! Yesterday’s blog post, Alaska Is Not For Us, brought some interesting comments and e-mail. While I was not surprised by the several e-mails from blog readers who told me I was wrong, and that […]

Several of our good friends, including Dennis and Carol Hill, Don and Sharon Del Rosario, Larry and Marilyn Forbes, and Luke and Cool Judy Rinehimer, are all traveling in Alaska this summer, and we’ve been following their adventures through their blogs. Their photographs are spectacular, the scenery is beautiful, they have seen some neat wildlife, […]

I got a call early yesterday morning for the NACO South Jetty campground, telling me that our UPS package had arrived, and they were holding it at the guard shack for us We drove over to pick it up, and then stopped at the post office to see if our mail had also arrived. It […]

Yesterday I managed to break the nasty cycle of getting up way too early in the morning, and I think I may be on the road to recovery. We slept in, then stayed in bed snuggling and having some quiet time together. These are the moments I cherish most between Terry and I. We finally […]

Even though Spring has barely sprung, many of the RVers we know are already on the road, starting their summer travel adventures. Some have been sitting still all winter long in one snowbird roost or another from Florida, to Texas, to Arizona and southern California, and have a bad case of hitch itch. Others have […]

While enjoying Miss Terry’s delicious cinnamon rolls yesterday morning with Greg and Jan White, we got into a discussion about travel plans, and how often it seems like our plans get changed, or pushed to the back burner, because somebody needs or wants us to be someplace else. For several years now, we have wanted […]

I have been getting a lot of e-mails from RVers who are concerned about the recent upswing in fuel prices and are starting to panic, just like they do every time fuel goes up. Five or six people have told me that they have scrapped their plans to go to Alaska this summer, quite a […]
