If you are among the millions of Americans in the path of the vicious storm systems that are tearing through the country, please be careful and take care of yourselves.

We got Terry’s cats, BeeBee and Mai Lyn, spayed a week ago today, and as I wrote in a blog afterward, Mai Lyn was fine after a couple of hours rest. BeeBee seemed to be having some kind of reaction to the medication and hissed and growled at the other critters for a couple of […]

In my time kicking around this world I’ve been in a few blizzards, a couple of tornados, we drove through the edge of a forest fire during our first year on the road, and I’ve seen a lot of Arizona flash floods. Now I can add an earthquake to the list. A little before noon […]

I have written about the dangers of bad weather when on the road in your RV, but as the pictures with this blog show, you can get into trouble even when parked in a campground. A tornado tore through the NACO Natchez Trace campground near Hohenwald, Tennessee Monday, destroying several RVs and other vehicles, and […]
