A Good Year to Visit Canada On our way through New Brunswick we encountered a toll road.  I pulled up to the toll booth and asked what the toll would be for us.  The man in the booth said it would be $5.25.  I asked if he could take US money and he said yes.  I handed him a $5.00 bill.  He punched that into his register and laughed, "It looks like I owe you...

Farewell to a Friend "How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to.” – Anonymous
I write this with tears steaming down my face. Our noble friend and companion, Tai, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge – that sappy, mythical but nevertheless comforting place where much-loved pets go to await their masters. He would have been 12 th...

Earlier this year, I wrote an entry about Ten Great Smartphone Apps for RVers .  It was a popular article with my readers.  My smartphone has become a vital tool for me when I travel.  In the past few months, I’ve added some more apps that have come in very handy while I’m traveling.  So, in this post, I’ll share inf...

After several trips of constantly turning on the generator so that the kids could watch TV or my wife could charge her laptop while driving, I finally decided to install an inverter to power the coach with the house batteries. After some research this is what I came up with:

Our 1998 Southwind was overdue for a roof rehab - see photos 1 and 2.  The original top layer was almost gone in places and we were having a lot of trouble with chalking and grey streaks forming on our windshield, windows and side panels.
I researched various treatments in forums, ads and websites.  I wanted something long-lasting and rel...

I hear this question often, and the answers vary…
“Motorhome or Towable … Which is best for me?”
The simple answer is “It Depends…”

Bradford friends find us in VA FL 4-13-15
As we near the end of our winter get away we decided to spend a few days unwinding. Yesterday we took a drive over the mountain to Culpepper VA. It was another beautiful blue sky day. The views from the mountain were spectacular. The balance of the day was spent at our CG enjoying the 70 degree weather.

Today we traveled over the mountain aga...

Caliente Spring Resort
I stayed at Caliente Springs Resort this winter and at a “State of the Resorts meeting” the management asked for an online review.  They may feel that they have the best resort available but I must say they are brave to ask for an online review with me in the room.

From Tampa to Everywhere.... One of my favorite things to do is lie on the sofa, close my eyes, and recreate a trip....the miles, the feel of the road, the terrain, the people I see and meet along the way.
I started in 2007, no sense pretending my memory is that sharp....so, I'll begin with the most recent..my Labor Day trip to the northeast Georgia mountains to visit an old e...

Mountain Hwy.

Good Morning Fellow Travelers:
One quick question, I'm considering traveling out to CO and visiting the Durango area. It appears that highway 160 running "west" off of I-25 is the most direct route. Does anyone have any "experience" with this particular highway?
Thanks for any input.

The Quest for a REAL CUP OF COFFEE

Posted by PopNDelly in The (mis)ADVENTURES of PopNDelly, 31 May 2014 - - - - - - · 1,929 views

The Quest for a REAL CUP OF COFFEE Downsizing from a 1400 sf townhouse to a 34 ft 7 inch Motorhome was pretty easy. We gave away just about everything - without much hesitation. Unless you count the 10x15 storage unit....... It is full of books and Christmas decor. But no coffee makers reside there.

It was too big for the counter.
It pulled to...
