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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

We’re at the Navy Lodge in Fort Worth, TX and waiting for our laundry to finish drying. I thought this would be a great time to post an update while we have reliable Wi-Fi. Please forgive if you find a typo or an incomplete sentence…today, it is what it is.
To sum up our experience so far I would have to say that things are going swimmingly as we march Sherman toward the sea. Our Cruise America RV is nicely equipped with a sink, microwave, stovetop, shower and bath. There is a double…Continue

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…

Boondocking is a great way to camp, especially if you enjoy the vast wilderness and the solitude that one gets from becoming a part of nature. Boondocking, otherwise known as “dry camping,” “disbursed camping” or “off the grid camping,” simply means that you choose to camp on your own, rather than stay in an established RV park. This is completely possible because every Cruise America class C recreational vehicle is completely self-sufficient. With water tanks, battery banks and an onboard…Continue
