Writings and Postings and Such

The process of dropping the tankWe had problems with our fuel pump.  At least that's the operating theory.  We didn't do a whole lot of diagnosis for reasons I will explain.  It all started when we crested a hill after a long climb on a 98 degree F day.  The motorhome died completely.  We coasted down the mountain with a dead engine and came to a stop in the chain removal lane....

Sandusky, OhioFriday August 23, 2013
Cedar Point Water TowerIt would be hard to call this review objective.  We were pretty lazy while in Sandusky and didn't do much at all.  Therefore we didn't truly evaluate the whole town thoroughly.  That said, we had a good time in our own way here. Sandusky most certainly has to be considered a tourist town.  Simply walking though the Wal-mart parking lot shows you that... Read More...
Missouri Routes are LettersWednesday August 21, 2013
Missouri Letter RoutesThis is something that I've never seen before.  Apparently in Missouri most (all?) of their state routes are actually letters instead of numbers.  Either a single letter or a double letter but I didn't decode the meaning.  I'm not sure what the rationale is, I would think numbers would be easier especially since there might be illiterate people out there driving...

Fix Or Repair DailyTuesday August 20, 2013
If you had to break down where would you choose to break down?  Perhaps near an inexpensive well stocked city with cheap pull through sites.  Our rig broke down just after climbing a mountain in Lame Deer, MT.  Deep in the heart of what appeared to be Native American sovereign lands.  You had to drive 60-100 miles in any direction in order to get cell phone...

Tionesta, PAMonday August 19, 2013
Tionesta LakeTionesta, PA is an extremely rural town located in northwestern, PA.  It achieved tourism destination status when the Army Corps of Engineers installed a dam for the purposes of flood control.  The resulting lake became a place people from the surrounding areas came to boat, fish and canoe.  The Corps of Engineers campground, while rather nice, is a stark...

The board in place with all wiring attachedOne morning we were surprised to wake up to a brisk 59 degree bedroom.  Given that the thermostat was set on 73, obviously something was wrong.  Our motorhome has dual ducted central thermostat controlled air conditioners.  Although people are quick to call a repair man, issues with these units are typically easy to diagnose.  Before we get into it, one...

TIonesta DamRated as the #1 campground in Pennsylvania on Tripblaze, we figured we had to visit this Corps of Engineering Campground.  I don't want to say we were disappointed but I think we really expected to be wowed by the #1 campground rated on any site.  What we found wasn't mediocre but other issues made for a mediocre total experience.  The campground is located...

We Slept at a Rest StopTuesday August 13, 2013
South Dakota I90 Rest Area 1We slept at a rest stop and apparently lived to tell the tale.  No axe murderers and no sex criminals were detected (Big Bang Theory anyone?).  After a day of biting off a bit more than we could chew, we never made it to our destination.  Perhaps it was the epic argument that a careful observer might have witnessed on the live feed or problem with our toad but...

Horsham, PennsylvaniaFriday May 10, 2013
Horsham, Pennsylvania happens to be on a lot of "best places to live" lists while simultaneously being the place we have lived for many years before starting out this trip.  We didn't live in Horsham proper but in the surrounding Montgomery County area.  Really there is nothing we see that is particularly awesome about Horsham that isn't available in Willow Grove,...

Oak Grove Park & SalesThursday April 25, 2013
Oak Grove welcome sign at the entranceOak Grove Park & Sales is a small park in the northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia, in Hatfield, PA. Since we lived in Hatfield, we used Oak Grove as a jumping off point while we were selling our house so our multi-month stay has given us great insights into the workings of this park. Oak grove consists of what appears to be a 50/50 split of park models and transient sites... Read More...
