Riding Route 6

I really enjoy traveling through rural and small town America. I have found such interesting and curious things off the main road.  During my first trip in my rig in 2013 I ended up at the tail end of a parade in a small town in southern Minnesota. People cheered and I waved. It was […]Read More

Rallying & Joining the International Percy Fan Club

A month ago Miss Elsie and I packed up our RV  EmmyLou, and began the drive east from San Diego. We are at times meandering our way to New Jersey and other times, well we are putting on the miles so we can have time to visit with family, friends and get ready for the […]Read More

Self-diagnosing RV Problems on the Road

One day a few weeks ago I was walking back to my rig when I noticed a tube hanging underneath my rig. Oh no!!!! What was that, and why had I not seen that before? My first reaction is panic and all the wild questions roll around in my head. What is that? Is it […]Read More

Small Person Driving Big

It is hard to believe that I have owned my Roadtrek SS Agile campervan for close to six years. It is even harder to believe that I have been full timing it with Elsie the Cat for over two years. Where does the time go? What do I do next? How long do I want […]Read More

A Mountain Biking and Railroad Lover’s Adventure

Many years ago I was visiting a good friend in Santa Cruz, CA. He suggested that we go camping at Point Reyes National Seashore. We took his two mountain bikes and biked into one of the campsites near the ocean.  I had never been on a mountain bike before. As we were dropping down the […]Read More

Meandering through Nebraska

Janet finds help for her electrical issue

A few days ago I discovered three outlets in my Roadtrek SS Agile were not working. Oh no, major crisis. Any time anything goes wrong it becomes major, immediately in my mind.
