Rx for RVing with a Chronic Illness

Posted by italo in J. Dawg Journeys, 24 November 2014 - - - - - - · 8 views
RV Lifestyle

If you are healthy, living pain free and disease free, you are one lucky person.  I just read a statistic that almost 50% of adults in the US have at least one chronic illness and it gets worse for older adults.  Over 70% of us over age 50 have at least one chronic illness .  A chronic illness is one for which there's usually no cure and r...

Melvin's gone missing!

Melvin's gone missing! 11-23-14
Now we have a mystery on our hands. I went to retrieve Melvin from the closet and he was missing. Either I can't remember where I put him or he's on the lamb.
Daylight was wasting and t-storms threatened, so we left without him. If he isn't found tonight, I'll by several milk cartons tomorrow and put his picture on them. Anybody know John Walsh's...

Eastbound on I-10 on the Way Home

Tucson, Arizona, New Mexico and 7 more...

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...

Rubber Ducky, you're the one! The Black Ribbon part 2
 
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...

Why We Boondock

boondocking, dry camping

Why We Boondock It sounds like it’s raining. But it’s not. It’s the sound of acorns dropping from the oak trees all around us as we boondock in the middle of the woods overlooking the Rifle River in northern Michigan’s Ogemaw County.

This is not a particularly pretty time of the year. The beautiful fall leaves have turned brown and now cover the...

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 - - - - - - · 276 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 - - - - - - · 346 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

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 - - - - - - · 1,168 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...

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.

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.

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)

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 - - - - - - · 643 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...
