I think all travelers, whether they do it by RV, automobile, or airplane, have a bucket list for the destinations they visit. At least I know we did during our 18 years as fulltime RVers, and so do my kids when they come to visit us. One thing on everybody’s bucket list was to get […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we had planned to stay home on Friday so I could get some writing done and Miss Terry could get back to her latest long-delayed weaving project. But then we ran out to do a couple of errands and the day got away from us. So we didn’t accomplish […]

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 […]

Today’s The Day!

When I get this close to the end of a book and the whole story is coming together, I don’t want to stop. I feel like a marathon runner that’s just seen the finish line. Okay, I made that part up. I have no idea what a marathon runner would feel like, and I don’t […]

Yeah, that blog title got your attention, didn’t it? I know it sounds pretty harsh, but unfortunately, it’s true. Everybody’s kids are going to die. Yours and mine, and everybody in the world’s kids. Just like the rest of us. But let me explain where I’m going with all of this. I was in an […]

Most of yesterday was spent moving our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage motorhome out of the storage lot and over to our house, and getting it ready to show to a potential buyer who is supposed to come by on Sunday. I had unhooked all of the batteries when we parked it a few weeks ago to […]

Almost A Miracle?

Do you remember the old Bible story about how Jesus fed the multitudes with just a few loaves of bread and two fish? How did he make so little last for so long? I guess the only explanation was that it was a miracle. It seems that we have a couple of much smaller miracles […]

I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

A Refugee Feeling

Miss Terry and I are getting a very small taste of what it must be like to be a refuge from a natural disaster. While we are fortunate to have full hookups here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, the place is filled with RVs of every shape and size with folks forced inland […]

Guns And New England

Several blog readers have been asking me about the legalities of taking guns to New England when they go to Vermont for Escapade this summer. I think Vermont is pretty easy to get along with, but some of the other states in the region, like Massachusetts and New York, are not all that welcoming to travelers […]

That’s Just Wrong!

We were up at Oh-Dark-Thirty yesterday morning to get the motorhome packed up and ready to go to for an appointment to get both windshields replaced at 10:30. Just before it was time to leave I called to confirm the directions to the shop and they said because it was raining and our RV is […]

We have been on the go a lot lately, so when we awoke to a heavy overcast yesterday morning, we decided that it would be a good day to stay at home. I had a lot of writing to do and Terry wanted to plan her next weaving project. Except for the fact that we […]

I’ll Be Switched

As I said the other day, every time an RV goes rolling down the highway it’s subject to earthquake forces as it bounces over potholes and through rough construction zones. So it’s no wonder that things shake loose or break from time to time. A few days ago Terry started a load of laundry and […]

We were awake before 6 a.m. yesterday morning to be ready for the tech at Rocky Mountain Cummins to take our motorhome into the garage at 7:30. Since we are not morning people, we were not thrilled about that. And it’s been our experience at different repair shops over the years that even though they […]

Four years ago today we returned to our motorhome, which was parked at an RV repair shop, and came face to face with an armed burglar. It was a terrifying experience and one that taught us that complacency can get you killed in a hurry. I wrote about the incident in a blog post titled […]

I have a not undeserved reputation for bringing bad weather with me wherever I go. Did you ever see that old movie The Rainmaker? Burt Lancaster was conning drought-stricken farmers, promising to make it rain, a promise he could not deliver on. I don’t charge a penny, but I’m starting to think maybe I could […]

I don’t believe that every RV salesman is a liar and a cheat. But the sad fact is that a lot of them are; enough to cast a wide shadow that, unfortunately, sometimes touches the whole industry. I’ve worked in sales over the years, everything from advertising to automobiles, and was successful at all of […]

Last Day In Yuma

We’ve enjoyed our three weeks here in the Yuma Foothills and really appreciate the hospitality of our hosts, Charles and Chris Yust, owners of C&C Marketing and insurance. We’ve had time to rest and relax, to get some work done, and to get to know Charles and Chris better. It’s been fun, but it’s about […]

A Big Butt Chewing!

That’s right, yesterday Dennis Hill got a real butt chewing And it wasn’t just me. Miss Terry, Charles and Chris Yust, and even Dennis’ pretty wife Carol were doing it, too. And it went on for hours! By the time we were all finished, I was surprised he had any butt left! No, Dennis didn’t […]

We spent much of the weekend working on projects here at home, and though I was pretty much parked at my desk for ten or twelve hours, I didn’t get much accomplished. That’s frustrating. I’ve been trying to format two of my e-books, Overlooked Arizonaand Overlooked Florida, for print. Usually that’s not a big deal […]
