Before a long trip and after a long trip, or even a medium short trip,
it is always a good thing to check the bearings and brakes.
Its almost garranteed that 80% that, most RV's will some what over load…

RV travels Part 8

Part 8 Iowa.
Here we are in Des Moines,, approx. 1800 miles into this road trip. A tip, for when you travel through Omaha is NOT stay on the I-80. You may be thinking,, why not?. 
First of all,,, This a huge city,,, Think Dallas or Houston or even Chicago,, maybe even L.A.. Totally insane with the amount of vehicles crammed onto a hwy. This is a hub to all points to anywhere. You have, Lincoln, Sioux City,Des Moines,Topeka and Kansas City. To avoid alot of the…

RV travels part 7

Part 7 Wyoming. To Nebraska.
After spending the rest of the day at Little America, and over dosing on all the bling bling chrome and blinky lights,, its time to relax the eyes and check for holes in the eye lids. Gooood morning,, in the middle of the night. Yup, its just after midnight, stars are out, the truck stop still bustling with travelers, and sounds like a good time to put some more miles under the ole truck. I secure up the ole RV,, and head inside the truckers area and…

Rv travels Part 6 Wyoming

Part 6.
Welcome to the last stretch of Utah. I had made a stop over in Coalville, basically the middle of nowhere.Heading towards Wyoming. I wake up to a few inches of snow blanketing the truck and trailer. I look at the thermometer and its a balmy 51 degrees, inside.. brrrrrrr. Again,, I brew a fresh pot of coffee to start the day. I click the ole thermostat on the heater and it roars to life. (note to self,, set thermostat before laying down). As usual, while I wait for the…

RV travels Part 5 Utah

Part 5, Utah.
Now if your not familuar with the great state of Utah,,, It is a state all of its own.
It has platue's and canyons and majestic mountains at just about every turn. I got my rest in *Nutah,, The Nevada ,,Utah border, and did a full truck and trailer inspection. I did notice that ice block that had formed on the under belly of the 5th is slightly smaller then it was when I first checked it. Traveling with the temps in the teens, doesnt pursuade the ice to…

Rv travels Part 4

Part 4.
Feeble attempts at the drive in the snow travels. First of all,, RV's do not belong on the road, in snow... its just not right.
Donners pass is a real good example of where NOT to travel as winter starts to set in. I had stayed over in Modesto Ca.. Right in the heart of Ca. fruit basket, and cows,
Yess,,,,, cows,, from Tulare to Modesto is a vast land of dairy cows,, Kinda like Texas,, Ya roll your window down, stick your head out the window and…

RV travel humor Part 3

Part 3.
Tehachapi Ca.  You ever wonder what a mountain grade is? Noooo, not those little bumps in the road through Arizona,, of course some of those can get a tad steep.
I'm talking about the grade from the depths of haities. I know California allows *medical Herbs,, But I think before it was some what legal,, Someone back in the 50's or so, was smoking some of that when they designed this grade. (They must have had their poster board out and crayons, and kind…

RV travel humor part two

part 2..
After comming to a stop and the wife giving me that what the heck look, after bumping her head off the window, and me acting all sweet and innocent about it,, I say,, pit stop.
As I get ready to get out of the truck,, I get the Ole* rolling eyes and raised eyebrow look, 
(common guys,, you all have witnessed that look at least once, possibly more if your like me).
Ok,, I finally get out of the truck,, with eyes glaring through my…

RV travel humor. part one

I did the precheck, tires,cords,hoses,etc, secured loose items and shut and locked the door. Jumped in the truck and off we go for a road trip.... yaaaaa, here we go.

Fired up the ole diesel,, clatter clatter clatter,, diesels aint quiet by no means, so trying to leave the RV park in stealth mode is totally out of the question. I drive slow as to be in Incognito mode and to watch out for the rampant little bunnies running around,, Plus have to look really cool with all…
