Much Ado About Junk

Miss Terry really likes swap meets and flea markets, and anytime we go to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground in Bushnell, Florida we make it a point of going to the big Webster Flea Market. We can spend hours looking at all the goodies folks have for sale, from yard sale stuff to antiques, junk, […]

Or a kite flier. The wind has really been blowing here in Bushnell, Florida, and all over the central part of the state, according to the weather reports. Unfortunately, we’re not on a beach and we haven’t found any place big enough to fly our Revolution kites. Yet. But trust me, we will. Yesterday we went […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

The bad weather kept us inside again yesterday, and I’m running out of things to tell you about. We basically did the same old thing, eating, writing, some chores around the motorhome, etc. So rather than bore you with the same details all over again, I decided to dust off and update a blog from […]

Me And Jimmy B.

My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don’t love Jesus. That’s the title of a song by Jimmy Buffett, arguably the best singer-songwriter in the world, in my humble opinion. After wandering around the Webster Flea Market half the day yesterday, I know exactly how Jimmy B feels, or least two thirds of it. […]

We sure are glad to see warming weather in central Florida. Now if we can just stop working and get out and have some fun! After a leisurely morning, we spent much of yesterday working at our desks. Terry was busy proofing my new book, and I was busy trying to format Big Lake for […]

Shiver Me Timbers!

Baby, it’s cold outside! How cold is it! Damn cold! Last night the temperature got down to 34 degrees, and today’s high is only predicted to be 49! But that’s not the worst of it, tonight it’s supposed to go all the way down to 25! I highly disapprove! 🙁 Yesterday morning we were up […]

Well, is it over? Have we officially put the holidays behind us? Can life get back to normal now? Or at least whatever passes for normal with us? When I crunched the numbers yesterday, I was amazed at what my mystery novel, Big Lake, had done on Amazon. In December alone, the book sold 33,539 […]

Maybe Next Time

Miss Terry loves wandering around the huge Webster Flea Market, which is held every Monday a few miles from the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground, and when we were here last year, the day we chose to visit, it was raining and it got washed out. So I promised Terry that we’d go back yesterday. The […]

The latest news out of the Camping World/Good Sam crowd is that Camp Club USA, the highly touted discount campground membership program that Camping World has been selling for several years now, seems to be going away. In a recent message to members, Marcus Lemonis (remember him from yesterday’s blog?) has announced that Camp Club […]

Don’t ask me how I did it, but somehow, I managed to misplace an entire day! How does one do that? I knew that our two weeks at the Orlando Thousand Trail preserve was up on the 28th and we’d be leaving for two weeks. But for some reason, all along I thought the 28th […]

Yesterday was the last warm day we’ll probably have while we’re here in Florida. I think it topped out at 68 degrees. Starting today, the daytime temperatures are going to be in the 50s, with overnight lows in the mid-20s. I don’t think we’ll be here much longer; in just a few days we’ll be […]

Rained Out In Webster

Just as it has for so much of this winter, yesterday the weather put a crimp in our plans. Again. Several years ago when we were in Florida, we went to the big Webster Flea Market, which is held every Monday, and Miss Terry really enjoyed browsing all of the vendors, and searching for bargains […]

After all of the fun and activity of my family reunion on Saturday, we had a lazy Sunday. Just as I promised in yesterday’s blog, we slept in late, then spent most of the day in the motorhome, just taking it easy. Every once in a while, a day like that is good for everybody. […]

Yes, I know, only Nick can make a family reunion sound tacky. But have you ever actually met anyone in my family? Trust me, if you did, it would make sense! 🙂 Yesterday was a busy and fun day for us. We left the Escapees campground in the morning and drove 70 miles down to […]

A Short Move

Since we only made a short 45 mile move yesterday, from the Orlando Thousand Trails  to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground, a couple of miles south of Bushnell, Florida, we were in no hurry to get up and go. Our reservation at the Thousand Trails actually wasn’t up until today, so we didn’t have a […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our eleven years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places, and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our personal favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes […]
