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…Continue

As kids, every one of us would repeatedly hear several of “life’s rules.” Don’t run with scissors in your hand— always wait at least 30 minutes after eating before getting in the pool—don’t talk to strangers—and don’t look directly into the sun!

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.

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
