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 […]

In A Pinch

Many years ago there was a TV commercial about weight loss or fitness or some such nonsense where a very good looking, very fit male or female actor would grab their very tight abdomen between their thumb and finger and ask, “Can you pinch an inch?” Are you kidding me? At my best the most […]

Don’t Do It!

Every so often I hear from RVers who are not fulltimers wanting to know about establishing an address with a mail forwarding service and then buying an RV out-of-state and registering it in one of the more RV friendly states like Texas, South Dakota, or Florida. Some of them plan to leave their homes and […]

Kayaks And RVing

For active RVers who enjoy nature and a little bit of adventure, kayaking is one of the best activities you can consider. Paddling is great exercise and we have done it everywhere from the Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Keys to Midwest lakes and rivers. And once you purchase your kayak and equipment, it’s […]

In a blog post a few weeks ago titled What To Do? What To Do?, I said I was trying to decide whether to buy my wife’s husband a red Mustang fastback or a pontoon boat for Valentine’s Day. Apparently not everybody gets my sense of humor or could read between the lines, because three different […]

In a recent conversation with somebody who was asking me for suggestions on places to spend the winter in his RV, I told him about some of the places in Florida we like. His immediate response was, “Oh, hell no! I don’t want to get eaten by an alligator!” I assured him that probably wasn’t […]

When Terry and I first got interested in kayaks many years ago we bought two Native Watercraft sit-on-tops. They were great boats and we really liked them, but after we traded in the Ford van we had then on the Explorer, we had to put them on the roof of the SUV. That became a […]

A while back I posted a blog titled Strange Sights about some of the oddball things we have seen in our 17 years wandering America’s highways and back roads as fulltime RVers. But we’re not the only ones who see things that leave us scratching our heads and saying “huh?” When our friends Tom and […]

Yesterday afternoon we were downtown in Seaside and saw a couple of guys with skateboards who were in their late 20s and being a bit obnoxious. I was tempted to tell them to grow up, but then I remembered that I’m 62 and I spend my time flying kites, so I kept my mouth shut. […]

Really, I can’t. I wish I could, but even I can’t write fiction as crazy as some of the things I see and hear. If I didn’t have Miss Terry here to occasionally pinch me so I know I’m not dreaming, I wouldn’t believe some of it myself. I was involved in an online discussion […]
