Heading North in the Burb 12-8-14

We were up at 8 and getting Gracie ready for a 5 week sleep as we return to NH for the holidays. All went on schedule and we were waving goodbye to Gracie by 11 AM.

Another oranges for sale sign caused us to stop in before we left FL. Ruthie found a bonus while waiting to be checked out. Pecan Pralines!!! They are a weekness of mine and she boug...

An RVer's Journey Going Paperless Getting mail, paying bills, banking, and getting cash - just some of the tasks of modern life.  They're simple enough if you're at home, but if you travel a lot, getting paper mail, paying bills, and getting cash can become an added complexity.   But thanks to the Internet and mobile communications, these tasks can be transformed to be less depe...

We spent Sunday night at the Wal-Mart on the north side of Tucson.  Monday morning we were out just after rush hour.  Making the turn from traveling southward from Oregon, we now turn into the sun in the early morning, heading east toward Texas.  Traffic through Tucson on I-10 is heavy but not as bad as some city driving.  About 30 mil...

The French Broad River is a very beautiful, naturally flowing river, meaning that it is not dam controlled by the TVA like so many others are in western North Carolina. It flows north easterly through the mountains which includes Asheville and there it connects with the Swannanoa River.  From there it continues through...

From Tampa to Everywhere....

Right brain and left brain

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.

Posted by washtech in washtech's Blog, 01 August 2014 - - - - - - · 344 views

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.

On the Way Home From Washington DC

Posted by GrampaDennis in GrampaDennis' Blog, 27 July 2014 - - - - - - · 382 views

On the Way Home From Washington DC Since I wanted to avoid the NJ Turnpike, we went home via I-476/Pennsylvania Turnpike, west of Philadelphia.  This is an OLD turnpike, which is very narrow.  Much of it is under reconstruction - it should be better when finished.  The right lane had bumpy drainage structures in it, so I drove mostly in the left lane. Meanwhile, the signs an...

What We Have Been Up To Since picking up the new motorhome, we went to Jon Walker's lake house in Southern Michigan, to Glamarama in Goshen, IN, then to our spot in Hearthside Grove at Petoskey, MI.
 
We enjoyed our time spent with Jon and Sondra Walker.  We parked at their lake house on Baldwin Lake in Michigan.  There were several things to be done to get things...

The Quest for a REAL CUP OF COFFEE

Posted by PopNDelly in The (mis)ADVENTURES of PopNDelly, 31 May 2014 - - - - - - · 1,221 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.

Picked up the coach today.  Brand new, warranted, Cummins 6BT 5.9 diesel.  Not a long block as we expected.  Rocky Mountain Cummins Coach Care really took good care of me in this deal!!  I came out smelling like a rose!

I'm installing the panels in the ceiling that I made in my shop. Hand made from Curly Redwood with 3 coats of Spar varnish.
This remodel has been quite the experience. I'm looking at 2 more months until its 99% done. Then a shake down run and final stuff.

Our New Thor Tuscany's Problems

My wife & I were looking forward to retirement in our new RV.  We aren't experienced in the RV atmosphere, but wanted to do it right.  So, we bought a brand new 2014 big rig.  My wife retired in December and we were planning to leave right after the holidays.  But our trip was delayed with RV tweaks and troubles.

The Three-Week Test Drive (Contributed by Malcolm Sandy)

The Three-Week Test Drive (Contributed by Malcolm Sandy) After several years of nagging, I finally managed to drag my wife, kicking and screaming, into retirement. I don’t know if it was because she’s a workaholic, or if she just didn’t want to be around me 24/7. Probably the latter. Regardless, we quickly bought a used 28-foot travel trailer and spent the next few months fitting it out. Our p...

Those Crazy Guenthers

Sometime in the early 1970s, my parents returned from Colorado to the East Coast to visit with family and to take care of unfinished business after our nine-month trip. Once we got there, my Aunt Cindy asked us to transport two horses to a show. So, my dad picked up a two-horse trailer.
 
At the last minute, Aunt Cindy also asked us if we could pick...
