Melvin smells something funny

Melvin smells something funny 2-23-15
Today we took off in search of Billy's swamp tours. That didn't work out so well. Garmin could not find him and after 120 miles and 3 stops for directions I gave up. Perhaps I'll try again when we head for alligator alley next week.

We did manage to see quite a bit of the country side. At one point we even stopped to watch sugar cane being harves...

Living in a Small RV - Parked for The First Month We're at San Carlos RV Park in Fort Myers Beach and have just about completed the first month of stay put living in our small RV.  Its the longest we've ever stayed parked in one place.  In a nut shell, so far so good.  We're still married, still mostly sane, still talking, nobody's been hurt, and we're having a pretty good time.  It...

New to blogging here.

Just sitting here trying to plan another trip and wondering if I should get involved with blogs and posts. I have reviewed the forums and have learned much as we are new at this since August 2014. Any thoughts or ideas?

Have a Happy New Year

We've been back at our winter residence for nearly two months now.  When we were full timing the motor home was our residence. How different things are now.  We moved into a mobile home (they call them manufactured homes when they sell them) in 2010.  Manufactured is a better term.  The home was mobile for about 500 miles but now that...

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 - - - - - - · 406 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 - - - - - - · 432 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...

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 - - - - - - · 1,295 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.

Rebuilding my 73 26ft.

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.
