Don’t ever pass up places like Markleeville on CA Highway #89 that follows the west side of Lake Tahoe. At the General Store, I talked with Dave who watches the place when the owner is gone. They are open all winter. He said they had less snow than usual this year. It is beautiful country […]
Into every RVers life a little rain must fall. Although that rain may be accompanied by wind and large hail too. During our recent gold mining adventure in eastern Oregon we had a sudden wind storm one evening and a huge hail storm the next. When you are planning on doing a little dry washing […]
Three motorhomes on my own and I have progressed (?) to a tent again. Everything comes full circle. The last time I tented was during the two-week Yukon River wilderness canoe trip (RVing Alaska and Canada) in 1996. I put up the new light-weight nylon tent three times in my Arizona room before packing it […]

If you include ORV (Off Road Vehicle) use as part of your RVing adventures, like my family does, then you need to know a major theft has occurred! In the early 1970’s, Washington State ORV enthusiasts gave up their State Constitutional right to a fuel tax refund for fuel used off-road, and further, created an […]

We installed a vinyl walkway that opened up into the kitchen and runs clear through the bathroom, with […]

I sold it two summers ago. […]
