Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX

Dellanera is a beach front RV Park just west of the busy part of Galveston where the piers and attractions are and is run by the City. I think if I had originally had a site on the west end of the park rather than the east end, I would have been happier and stayedContinue reading “Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX”

May 22, 2011

Driving through Joplin takes you back in time to a simpler era long ago with clapboard houses and country stores. As the character Scout said at the beginning of the movie, To Kill a Mockingbird, “{it} was a tired old town.” But as I was driving through Joplin and enjoying the neighborhoods and the fact thatContinue reading “May 22, 2011”

The First 200 Miles…

Towing a car, that is. I spent my first year full-timing in my motorhome without a car but bought a manual transmission small vehicle while I was in Oklahoma City for two months. The second month there involved a few weeks of getting the car ready to tow. My first 200 miles consisted of drivingContinue reading “The First 200 Miles…”

The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park

Although whileContinue reading “The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park”

Thoughts on Migratory Birds

So I’ve got one place booked for a month and won’t publish my report till after we leave and decided I needed an “in-between” blog post so no one gets bored. I booked Sugar Barge RV Resort in the Sacramento Delta for 30 days and that’s where we are now. After spending a week atContinue reading “Thoughts on Migratory Birds”

On the Road Again

After 6 weeks parked in one spot to visit family and friends for the holidays, I’m back on the road. We (when I say “we” that refers to me and the dogs and cat) left Sacramento the day after New Year’s Day and drove 3 hours to Visalia. We stayed again at the Visalia KOAContinue reading “On the Road Again”
