(Nov. 8, 2018) — I enjoy television series. Some I follow from the beginning, tuning in each week. Some I stream or binge-watch on DVD; some are a little of both. After cramming the first couple of seasons while the shows were still airing, I blame “The Sopranos” for my HBO subscription, and “Dexter” for Showtime.
The Lady is a Tramp
(Oct. 19, 2018) — Odds are, even if you’ve never been and are not an RVer, you’ve heard of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. In its 47th year in 2018, it takes place each October. What started with a few balloons in a mall parking lot is now an international event, bringing over 500 balloonists and a million spectators.
(Sept. 28, 2018) — Crater Lake, Oregon’s only National Park, is situated between Eugene to the north and Ashland to the south. More than 5 million people go to the Grand Canyon every year; less than 750,000 visit Crater Lake. I highly recommend a visit, although perhaps for not an entire week like I did.

(March 27, 2018) — At the southern end of the 444-mile-long Natchez Trace to Nashville, perched atop a 200 foot loess bluff overlooking the Mississippi River and Louisiana, Natchez, Mississippi is the oldest settlement on the Mississippi River.
(March 9, 2018) — For the benefit of anyone who’s been living under a rock for the last 25 years or so, a “Bucket List” is a compilation of things to accomplish before death, or “kicking the bucket.” As I rush headlong toward my fifth decade, my Bucket List is shorter than it once was. Of course, there are things I’d still like to see and try and experience for the first time.
(March 7, 2018) — Following a memorable month in Miami, I meandered my way out of The Sunshine State, in search of what locals call “Old Florida.”
(Feb. 14, 2018) — In January 2018 I had two service appointments at Lazydays in Tampa. The visits went off without a hitch (no pun intended), the service was superb, and I was extremely pleased.
(Nov. 30, 2017) — Words from the Latin root word “grat” have to do with being pleasing. “Gratus” is to be thankful, which became “grateful.” “Gratis,” meaning esteem or favor, evolved as “gracious.”
(Nov. 27, 2017) — Two and a half years ago, I completely dismantled my perfectly good life. I exited the Rat Race, downsized drastically, and embarked on a journey of travel and discovery.
