Sante Fe, New Mexico: Hello green chile

Leaving the Big Texan behind us, we headed for  Santa Fe. We knew it would be better than Amarillo, we had already found no less than a haf-dozen Diners, Drive-ins and Dives recommendations nearby. If nothing else we will eat

The Ice Storm Cometh. Las Cruces, New Mexico

Leaving Ft. Stockton, Texas the weather deteriorated. We were beginning to second guess making a late January RV trip west. As we neared El Paso and the New Mexico border it became dark and overcast, the mountains  shrouded in clouds

A Rainy Day Mission in San Antonio, Texas

We don’t usually drive the RV  on long trips in the winter. In the past we have stuck close to Florida, where warm, sunny days are the norm in January and February, and there is no shortage of things to

Looking for Deep Fried Butter in Skowhegan, Maine

Have you ever had deep dried butter? How about chicken fried bacon? If not I imagine you haven’t been to a State Fair lately. There seems to be a philosophy at these fairs that says if you can eat it,

Chute Montmorency: Size Does Matter

When we travel in the RV it’s always a decision in terms of what we stop to see. We will scour the tour books and internet sites to find out what there is to see in an area and go

The Not So Easy Big Easy

You can plan just about everything you need for a road trip, except the weather. We arrived at Fairview Riverside RV in Madisonville, Louisiana just as a cold front came through bringing 40 degree temperatures and driving rain. The park

The Redneck Riviera

I was trying to remember the book I read that originally introduced me to the term the “Redneck Riviera” to describe the beach areas of Florida’s panhandle. It was a long time ago. I remember it was a detective series

Wawa, No (Live) Moose, But Plenty of Poutine

Leaving Rainbow Springs Provincial Park we crossed northern Ontario and followed along the shore of Lake Superior.  We were headed for Wawa.  I had found it on the map, on the eastern shore of Lake Superior, in the middle of

O Canada, Home of the Freshest Lunch Ever

We have driven the RV on a lot of back roads (and many of the major highways) in the United States, but at this point we had yet to venture into Canada. Leaving our shabby fishing camp in Baudette, Minnasota

Oh Well, Roll with the Punches

Hubby was born a fisherman. No one in his family fished, but from his earliest days it’s all he ever wanted to do. Maybe it’s that Manzanita Indian blood that courses through his veins, maybe it’s genetic. Who knows why

If we are near Atlanta we must be in traffic

Hubby usually avoids driving the RV anywhere near a major city. Get on a major highway, near a city, and you face unfamiliar interchanges,  rush hour traffic, and frenzied drivers. It’s one of the reasons we stick to the back

Lobstah Dinners and Other Summer Fun

There is nothing like New England seafood. Haddock, steamers, scallops and lobster have become a staple of our New Hampshire diet. As soon as we get down to Portland we’ll add fresh swordfish to that list. (for some reason we

Reversing Falls

Fun at Fundy, in search of the 50 foot Tide

From the wilds of Maine we head the motorhome east, across the border into New Brunswick, Canada. We heard the surf was up in the Bay of Fundy. Talk about extreme tides, each day the Bay of Fundy sees billions of  tons of seawater flow

On Surviving Nor’easters in 300 Square Feet

Our Summer in New Hampshire has started with a Nor’easter. Three days of driving rain, cool temperatures, and flooded roads have pretty much confined us to the motorhome, and challenged our self-entertainment skills. As always the internet is a portal

Getting the Blues on Highway 61

Delta Blues that is.  Think Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Wllie Dixon; juke joints and cotton gins.  US highway 61 meanders south along the Mississippi from Memphis, Tennessee toward Natchez, Mississippi. We had been to Memphis before, but the last time

Road Food: The Healthy Kind

There are all kinds of road food. Driving across the country we try and sample as much of it as we can. From out of the way Taco stands to diners, drive-in’s and dives, we love to find great food at

BBQ King?

Memphis in May

The month of May brings flowers to mind for some, but May makes me think of Memphis … and barbecue.  Yes, I know, there’s always Beale Street with some top notch eating places and lots of great music. But you
