 We went for a two day run over to Golden Hill State Park. The Campground was a great one. Facilities were good, even the rest rooms were pretty well kept, not that we really needed it with our current rig. they even have a laundry, there. The place is very laid back.  If you’re looking […]

Yeah, I went and did it, today. I prepared the camper for the long winter, which basically means we won’t take it out again until April or May.  All that’s left is to move the thing to the storage area. Because of a few financial problems that came on us unexpectedly, we didn’t get to […]

Oh, please. Waxman’s at it again.

The Committee will hear from current […]

So I sit down with a little coffee, and begin to look at the world around me this chilly December night: So now, Congress is going from a three day workweek to a five day workweek.  I’m quite sure the Democrats figure that that’s going to make them look hard working.  However, it should be […]

Very true, Billy , it does only go 250 miles per charge… or less….  And, as you say, it then needs three or four hours to recharge on a good day.  What you fail to reckon with, however, is that’s the kind of range are global planning friends would like to limit you to. You […]

Just got back from a camping trip over to the Erie run. So we call it, anyway.  This would be loosely defined as interstate 90, routes 5 and 20, anywhere between Buffalo, and Cleveland. Just about every Columbus day weekend, since we first got a camper, we’ve been doing a last gasp type of run. […]

When we woke up in the morning, we must have spent at least an hour listening to the birds and the squirrels making noise all around us. That’s something we don’t often do at home. We had some breakfast, and went along home to take care of medicating the cats. When we got back to […]

So here came July 4th weekend. We haven’t gone much of anyplace this year for several reasons… mostly, two cats that need medication daily. But we’re setting out to Lakeside Beach State Park, which is our new favorite park of late. Here we are in the driveway the morning we’re set to leave. It’s hot […]

The first trip of the 2006 season was to Tumble Hill Campground, at 10551 Atlanta Back Rd. in Cohocton, NY. Cohocton is in the southern tier region of New York state, just off the exit two of I-390. Last time the census was through this town, they managed to count 838 people… mostly of German […]

Steven Coffman mentions a need for a 12v fridge for under $100. I have found the Thermo-electric Coleman cooler, ( to be very useful. It’s a shade over $100 list, add the 110v power supply and you go to $140, but Walmart usually has ’em with the power supply for under $100. I’ve found though […]

We’re at that part of the year where we’re not quite ready to bring the Kiwi home, and yet we’re champing at the bit to bring it home. This year perhaps, came a little earlier than some years, given that this is a relatively gentle winter around here.  Yet, the temperatures are still maxing in […]

OK, yes… it’s been a while since my last post in here. The trouble is simple; it’s hard to envision a lot of what I need to do to prepare for next season with the poor trailer sitting in storage, 60 miles south of us. Thereby, I didn’t have all that much to write about. […]

Those of you read the posts that put up above lake Erie state park will recall that I made mention of the idea that that might be our last run for the year given weather conditions around western New York.  Sad to say that was exactly what happened the following two weekends did nothing but […]
