This ain’t Kansas, Toto…
 
Lights not lighting? 
 
Water pressure a trickle? 
 
Refrigerator not refrigerating …errr… cooling?
 
It’s annoying when the lights work most of the time (only happens when it’s dark outside)… 
 
It’s aggravating when the...

Springtime in Savannah

Posted by Castle3 in Melvin's Travels, 26 March 2015 - - - - - - · 27 views

Springtime in Savannah FL 3-26-15
Today we woke to a weather report for 80 degree temps. Without hesitation we began to plan our day. First a 20 minute drive to Fort McAllister state park to check out the camping facilities.

This is a very well preserved area with large trees and spacious camp sites. Big rigs and fifth wheelers do NOT fit in all sites and the park is frequentl...

Return to The Texas Hill Country

Posted by italo in J. Dawg Journeys, 11 March 2015 - - - - - - · 146 views

Return to The Texas Hill Country Last year, we did a brief one day stop over while passing through the Texas Hill Country .  This is a pretty area about 70 miles west of Austin.  In my opinion, it one of Texas's nicest areas.  Its a rural area of rolling hills, sparse trees, small towns, cattle ranches, and wineries.  You can read my blog post about last years visit h...

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. 
Caliente Springs Resort is located at...

The Bonding Power of the RV Lifestyle No matter where or how you roll, the one thing all RVers have in common is the way the RV lifestyle seems to bring people together - literally and figuratively. For snowbirds, full-timers, near full-timers like Jennifer and me or weekend campers, it's the sheer joy of getting out and meeting new people or simply spending quality time with your spouse or f...

Our First Blog

Posted by jananddave in Maritime Travels, 03 February 2015 - - - - - - · 220 views

We're planning a summer trip f/ our home in South Carolina to Canada's Maritime Provinces. We'll be traveling in our 39' diesel pusher coach. We've done a fair amount of research but would sure appreciate any helpful ideas or suggestions of places/things to see/do while there. Also, we're a little concerned about the availability of diesel fuel that fa...

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 - - - - - - · 609 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 - - - - - - · 566 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 - - - - - - · 1,494 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.

Pot 1: Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee maker

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!

Dental Implants in Pewaukee

Posted by Pewaukee in Pewaukee's Blog, 09 March 2014 - - - - - - · 81 views

Dental Implants in Pewaukee Tooth loss can be an embarrassing condition that most adults ages 20 and older have had to deal with. Most people in this age bracket have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal, tooth decay, excessive wear and tear, or congenital defects. Regardless of the reasons related to tooth loss, dental implants in Pewau...

Rebuilding my 73 26ft.

Posted by Beastmaster in Beastmaster's Blog, 08 March 2014 - - - - - - · 552 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.
