RV Travel Tips

How to Drive Through the New York City Area If you're in New England and want to get south or if you're in the south and want to get to New England, you most likely have to pass somewhere near the New York City area.   If you have an RV, it's inevitable that someday you'll have to drive through this area on some journey.  Its a congested and confusing area to drive through with a maze of...

Halloween RV Campouts

Posted by roadtrekingmike in Roadtreking Blog, 21 October 2014 - - - - - - · 54 views

Halloween RV Campouts The month of October has surprisingly become huge for RV campgrounds, resorts and parks around the U.S. thanks to Halloween.

Maybe because for many in the northern states, its a chance to do one more trip before the RV has to be winterized and put in storage.

Instead of just one night – Oct. 31 – many parks dedicate the entire two or three w...

Oregon, California, Road Trip

We spent most of this week with our daughter and her family at their vacation home in Oregon.  During our stay there were several days of rain and clouds.  Nights were cool enough that we had the furnace running.  Oregon is beautiful.  Their home is on the Umpqua river about 30 miles inland where they can actually fish from their back...

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 - - - - - - · 227 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 - - - - - - · 293 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...

Melvin will be getting a timeout

Melvin will be getting a timeout 6-25-14

Our trip down from Bar Harbor to Wells included getting struck in a Denny's parking lot. We missed the first entrance and should have passed by the second. Not enough room to turn around without backing up. That meant unhooking disabled Lucy and pushing her uphill to a parking space so we could turn around. Oh well, we had a good breakfast, hooke...

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 - - - - - - · 1,089 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...

The Death of XP

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...

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.

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.

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."

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 - - - - - - · 607 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 - - - - - - · 668 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...
