Having one car stinks!!!!

When we started this RVing adventure, I never thought about the fact that we’d be sharing one vehicle.  We have 2 vehicles but hubby doesn’t want me to drive the “BIG BOY” around town which would mean that we’d be spending a lot of money on diesel gasoline vs regular gasoline in his Sebring. At…

DANGERs at the Make Up Counter!!!

Day #3 Saturday Afternoon: We are now hooked up and are finally able to leave the lot to get to our first camping spot at the Rockwell RV Park about 20 minutes away in Oklahoma City. Hubby drives it first and is VERY surprised that he doesn’t even feel like he’s towing anything!  In fact,…

Remember yesterday…
