I recently made a little post about changing the oil and filters in the RV ‘van’ and the Jeep.  I also mentioned doing the same to the Generac QP40 generator in the RV, but noted that would be in a later blog post since there were extenuating circumstances. Here is that post. Where do I… Read More

The easy access from the road just a block off of the highway, made it a dream come true when we wanted to pull over and get stopped nice and quick after a white-knuckle drive through fierce cross-winds across north Texas. The lanes were wide and open and the pull thru spots were quite long.… Read More

In these weekly update posts which I hope to keep doing, you’ll find links to posts about the more noteable events. If they seem interesting but aren’t linked, they will be when we get that post done! This way, we’ll have a semi-chronological way of keeping events straight on the blog. Otherwise some things get… Read More

Oil changes are a thing I used to plan an entire afternoon around. Not because I had to clean up a work space and do much, but just to get my car over to a dealer and dropped off for the ordeal of watching crappy TV in their lobby while waiting 4 hours before they… Read More

I guess technically I didn’t break (all of) the things that have needed attention along the way, but I have been getting really intimate with how to fix stuff. On the list of things… Read More

So it’s been a while since I posted anything to this blog. That’s totally on me, and something I told myself I wouldn’t do again – take huge long breaks between posts. Seems it’s hard to get into the habit of writing about travels, and then keep it up when you’re not actually travelling. True,… Read More

newly built shower drain plumbing

So it seems I’ve been kind of lucky with the leak issues in my RV. Mostly, they’re not rain water coming inside (although there is one of those, but that’s a bigger post for another time). So far, a lot of the dripping has been related to something in the bathroom going bad. I’ve already… Read More

After a rollercoaster of a year travelling the north eastern US and even up into Nova Scotia, we have returned south for the winter! We’re not quite at the annual snowbird level just yet, but for lots of reasons a return to Houston just seems to make some good sense for now. On the way… Read More
