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 […]

Anyone who knows my wife or who has read the blog for very long is well aware that Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, or knitting, she’s never happier than when she has her hands on wool, silk, or any other fiber. So when readers told us about the Mora Valley Spinning […]

Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, and knitting. You name it and she does it. So she was really looking forward to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend. Allegan is about 90 miles from Elkhart Campground, and we got there about 11 a.m. We were only a few steps inside […]

Before I came into her life and carried her away, kicking and screaming, to spend our days wandering America’s highways and byways, Terry lived in a cozy little cabin in Arizona’s White Mountains that was filled with antiques. She had everything from curved glass-fronted Hoosier cabinets to an impressive collection of oil lamps. But these […]

Why Would You Stop?

In the past I’ve published several blogs about hanging up the keys and getting off the road, and talked about where we would settle down. Looking back at those blog posts it’s interesting to me to see how our interests have changed, yet how they have also stayed the same. In blogs in 2009 and […]

Many of you won’t believe this, but for all of her talents and her warm, outgoing personality, my beautiful wife is actually very shy. Terry loves people and you couldn’t ask for a better friend, but making the first move is always difficult for her. Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately), being married to an extrovert like […]

How windy was it yesterday? It was so windy the National Weather Service asked all the politicians in Washington to shut up. No seriously, it was so windy it blew the tramp stamp right off our waitress’ back at dinner last night. For much of the day winds here in north central were 35+ miles […]

An Astoria Day

Miss Terry loves farmers markets and craft fairs and such, so yesterday we drove to Astoria for the Sunday Market. As it turns out, we got a two-fer, two great things in one trip! Every Sunday during the summer they close several blocks of a street in the downtown area for the market, which draws […]

Spinning Time

Miss Terry is pretty much a self-taught spinner and weaver, learning from books, You Tube videos, and DVDs. But nothing beats a hands-on lesson from someone who has been doing it a long time. When we got into this area last week, we stopped in a couple of yarn stores to inquire about any classes […]

Spinning A Yarn

Yesterday was a much nicer day than the one before, lots of blue sky and in the mid-70s. So we decided to get out and have some fun. We made a stop at the post office to mail out a couple of orders, then drove about 20 miles south to Breezy Oaks Campground near Bushnell. […]
