Meetups and Hangouts

Games, games, and more games! The last few weeks, we’ve been back in Red Bay, AL finishing the rest of our warranty work on R2. While it does keep us busy, there isn’t much else to do in Red Bay which meant no more excuses and time to catch up on blogging. So back to...

Lamest blog post ever

For a while, I didn’t feel like blogging for a couple of reasons. First, we were having fun and doing things and who has time to write about it all? Then after the fun and games, who wants to sit down and actually concentrate on writing about it all?!? So I would keep putting it...

State Park Hopping

Since we’re heading up to New England and Nova Scotia this summer, we’re spending our winter in the south-east instead of our “usual” desert south-west. Florida is a huge snowbird destination and is full of tightly-packed, 55-and-over RV parks that are sold out months in advance for the winter months. Since that’s not our cup...

DragonCon – Where Nerds Go To Be Normal

After the eclipse (we still haven’t been able to stop gushing about the experience), we made it to Atlanta GA in time for DragonCon, a huge multi-genre convention held every year over Labor Day weekend. Every year it grows larger, with an estimated crowd size of 80,000 people this year. This is our third time...

Detours can be a good thing

After finishing with Texas, we headed to our favorite winter destination, Tucson AZ. Since we had to make it through most of Texas and all of New Mexico, it did take us 3 straight days of driving to get to Tucson. Poor Opie was having some cabin, er RV, fever by the time we reached Tucson....

Meandering through Florida

Recently we’ve had better luck running into friends we’ve made on the road, and while we were in Florida we had a chance to catch up with Jeff and Sue of Fools Rush Out in nearby Naples FL. In fact, we spent an awesome evening drinking and snacking on the beach watching the sunset and...

2016 Year In Review

One of our goals for 2016 was to drive shorter distances and stay a little longer at each destination. In general we succeeded, and appreciated the slower pace (and fuel savings!). January, February, and March: We spent these winter months mostly in southwestern Arizona. We had several dentist visits in Los Algodones Mexico, we upgraded our...

The interlude

Have you ever watched a TV show or movie where a bunch of stuff happens, then the screen fades to the next scene, and it says “3 months later”? It’s a great way to cut out all the boring stuff and get right back into the action. Well, this catch-up blog entry is our quick summary...

Ouray Colorado’s unwelcome guests

Before we started RV’ing, we had never heard of the majority of the places we have ended up visiting, including Ouray (pronounced either YOU-Ray, or You-RAY) Colorado. Mike’s Mom’s neighbor mentioned Ouray as a great place to visit so we added it to our list, and we’re glad we did. Ouray is a small town...
