Uluru and Kata Tjuta

Australia, Uluru, Kata Tjuta

Uluru and Kata Tjuta The big red rock in the center of Australia is the source of much interest and is of great significance to the native Aborigine culture.  When I speak of the Aborigine culture, it is not as a single culture for the entire nation.  The Aborigine tribes were just that, local tribes.  There were four tribes that inhabited the area around Ulur...

Roadtreking Sunsets and an Urge to Hit the Road

Posted by roadtrekingmike in The Roadtreking Blog, 17 April 2014 - - - - - - · 121 views

Roadtreking Sunsets and an Urge to Hit the Road Roadtrekers love to take photos. And while our styles, skills and the things we like to photograph may vary, one thing I bet all of us like to get are images of a sunset.

I’ve used these awkward days of spring before the warm weather travel season really gets under way to organize the thousands of photos I’ve taken over the past two years and...

The Death of XP

Posted by -Gramps- in Derrick "Gramps" Parker's Blog, 15 April 2014 - - - - - - · 226 views
Windows XP

Windows XP is now 12 years old. It has been one of the best, if not the best, operating systems to ever be installed on a hard drive. I personally think it is better than Windows 7. However, it is now officially at it's EOL stage.
EOL stands for End Of Life.
Let us not morn for it quite yet. As Mark Twain was once reported to have said: "R...

In search of warmer weather

Posted by PopNDelly in The (mis)ADVENTURES of PopNDelly, 06 April 2014 - - - - - - · 88 views

Delly had a heart attack in January. Add 68 inches of snow this winter and it was time to find warm weather and start recovering!

Pop was granted a one month sabbatical - a nice perk to his work - so we unhooked the Coach and headed South. Of course that was the day after another snow storm.....

First stop was WalMart somewhere in Virginia. Our first...

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!

Rebuilding my 73 26ft.

Posted by Beastmaster in Beastmaster's Blog, 08 March 2014 - - - - - - · 93 views

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

Posted by LewisandMaria in LewisandMaria's Blog, 22 February 2014 - - - - - - · 395 views

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.

Gloria's Confession

Sorry it has taken so long to put another entry on this blog.  I must confess that I (Gloria) have been writing Charlie's blog and will continue to write it. As you know, I am traveling with the "Prez." 
We left home on December 26 and went to Kennedale, Texas, to visit with Sheri Brewer and Gene Miller.  We spent New Year'...

The Florida Keys

The Florida Keys It always amazes me to meet a Floridian who has never been to the Florida Keys.  Sure, for those who live in central or northern Florida, it is a bit of a drive.  But we FMCA members have one huge advantage over the regular auto traveler.  We take our accommodations with us!  The Keys are an RV paradise with hundreds of private RV park...

Visited the MH in its winter storage

Posted by GrampaDennis in GrampaDennis' Blog, 03 February 2014 - - - - - - · 239 views

Today, Grandma and I visited our "Cottage on Wheels" in its winter storage, inside a warehouse of a former lumber yard. Due to some health issues now being evaluated, we have decided to forego our previously planned winter trip to Florida. Therefore, the MH will stay in storage until April sometime.

When I parked it, on Nov 16, I used the "battery disc...

Winter travels It's New Year's Day and the coach is loaded and ready to head out with Scottsdale, Az being our first stop. From there we will go to Las Vegas to attend a trade show. At the conclusion of the show we will make our way to Florida for the balance of the winter. We will not be using the most direct route from northwestern Ohio to Florida but it should be...

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

Posted by BoondockersWelcome in BoondockersWelcome's Blog, 17 December 2013 - - - - - - · 429 views

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

Posted by aztec7fan in FMCA Memories, 08 November 2013 - - - - - - · 344 views

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...

Meet Sadie, Our new Bus Dog!

Posted by Jaimepoulin1 in Everywhere America, 03 November 2013 - - - - - - · 370 views

Meet Sadie, Our new Bus Dog!    Almost since the day we left Maine, Michelle and I have been thinking about getting a dog......We had a beautiful guy that we fostered a little over three years ago. His name was Sparky and he was 8 or 9 when we got him. We had gone down to the local SPCA to get a puppy, and while we were touring the kennels, we happened to see him. He w...

Manabloc, Viega, manifold and 5 more...

I'd noticed that the plumbing manifold had some rusty hardware, and was dripping.   Actually, the first impression was that the Aqua Hot on the opposite side of the coach was dripping; but, good detective work and a drop light led me back to the true source: the Manabloc manifold.   I'll spare you all the trials of rebuilding the manif...

Another season ends

We are currently in Elkhart, IN on our annual fall weekend trip with Sandy's cousin and her husband.  The trip down on Friday was a beautiful fall travel day with puffy white clouds scattered around bright blue skies.  But the weather forecast called for conditions that reinforce October's standing as a risky time for outdoor activities--rain, on and off...
