Easin' Along is Taking Sherman to the Sea!

Well, after a LOT of persuasion, sweetness, and downright bribes, I finally convinced Helen (adorable wife) to take an RV trip. We're taking advantage of a "Relocation Special" from Cruise America. We'll be heading out from Chicago to the west coast by way of Tennessee then across the southwest and eventually reaching Point Mugu, CA which is somewhere north of Malibu. This will be an adventure and we're both nervous and excited, but it will be a great retirement activity.

For fun, we have given our RV the nickname Sherman and we have titled our adventure "Sherman's March to the Sea". Please join us. Over the next few weeks, we will share our adventure here and let you in on the places we visited and the great food we hope to experience. Can't wait to begin Easin' Along. Please join us at

Sand Looks Great Dressed in White

Texas is big, really big. Sherman, our Cruise America RV, only wants to travel in daylight so it required two days to make it across the state. Our route took us south and westward away from San Angelo on Interstate 10 through some pretty barren countryside. This made for interesting views. We were able to see vast stretches of desert punctuated by a few oil rigs, and small herds of cattle. We went for miles without seeing a human soul except for those in passing vehicles. The scenery was…

Sunrise in San Angelo

We steered Sherman out of Ft. Worth on the fourth morning of our RV retirement road trip. Our destination was Goodfellow AFB Recreation Camp which was about five hours away. This RV Park had no reserved spots available, so it was first come, first serve. We had called ahead and learned that there were a few spaces available at the time we called, but we moved along briskly in order to have a place for Sherman to spend the night.

By now we were becoming comfortable with the nuances of…

Corsicana and Fort Worth…Sherman Takes the Cake

It was the third day of our RV retirement road trip which we labeled “Taking Sherman to the Sea”. After dodging a storm and having the luck of obtaining complimentary rooms at Harrah’s Horseshoe Hotel and Casino in Bossier City, LA, we were fresh and ready for a day on the road.

Our destination was the Navy Lodge in Fort Worth, Texas. We had been unable to obtain a spot for the Sherman, our Cruise America RV, along our planned travel route, so we booked a room at the Navy Lodge…

Shreveport…Sherman Gets “Louisiana Lucky”

To date, Sherman, our Cruise America RV, has taken us through Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada. Our overnight stops have been wonderful, and the desert southwest is overwhelmingly beautiful…certainly a unique experience for a country boy from the Tennessee mountains.

By the time everyone reads this, Sherman will be California bound. We have had a blessed experience on this march to the Pacific coast, but finding the time (and the Wi-Fi connection) to upload…

Easin' Along is a website authored by Joe and Helen, a retired couple, and created to promote and participate in an active retirement lifestyle. Recently we experienced a wonderful adventure in an RV we rented from Cruise America that began in Chicago and crossed 12 states before arriving in Point Mugu, CA. We named our RV Sherman and documented the adventure we titled "Sherman's March to the Sea" on our website, We want to share our adventure with Cruise America enthusiasts with the hope we can provide some helpful information about the places we visited and the great food we enjoyed. I hope you will join us as Easin' Along "Cruises America".
