The 2017 "Coloma Chicken Chew" and the " Hancock Dairy Breakfast"

Posted Today at 08:31 AM by Charlie72704

Martha and I went to the Chicken Chew in Coloma, Wi. on Saturday evening. It was kind of a bust because it was in the mid 50's and windy. We missed the car show, watched a bit of community volley ball (elimination tournament), had a great Lion's Club rib dinner and decided (DW decided) that it was too cold to wait for the fireworks show.

It was a typical small town festival with the bully drunks in wife beaters to the overdressed socialite trophy wife wearing all leather and sporting...

Yellowstone Adventure

Posted 06-16-2017 at 08:29 AM by KoolBell


As I start this blog, it's Friday June 16th, 2017. Our home is in extreme Southeastern Alabama, just 90 miles north of Panama City Beach, Florida.

I need to start from the beginning, so here goes.

A very good friend of mine is soon set to retire, after many years as a civil servant at a nearby military base.

His wish is to take a long trip on his new Motorhome as a gift to himself, and his darling wife. He asked me if the wife...

The Opportunity to Retire and Relocate

Posted 06-11-2017 at 03:03 PM by George Miklas

No doubt that anybody who knows the Miklas Family, undoubtedly realizes their passion for the harmonica.

But to support the family and travel costs, George has held two jobs for the past five years. His primary job was full time high school special education teacher and my secondary was driving motor coach for a commercial charter company. In addition to two jobs, George also started a home based business as a harmonica retailer and service provider.

Too Much Information

Posted 05-13-2017 at 04:51 AM by noeldale

Left for the Maintenance Session in Goshen and thought everything was going great. Oh the ideas of the innocent.

After a couple miles, feeling good at this point, I started having a growling sound everytime we went from an acceleration point on the pedal to a deceleration state. This would happen with the cruise being dropped one MPH, when starting to go downhill and decelerate, or just taking my foot off the pedal due to traffic. The slightest pedal towards acceleration...

More Stuff Before the MS in Elkhart

Posted 04-30-2017 at 07:03 PM by noeldale

Spring has finally arrived in Michigan we were getting the final things done, some already listed as done. Then the final steps were going and other problems pop up.

The slide topper awning rail was completed and when the material was placed back on the roller it was determined that the spring had broken and would not retract. Therefore a new spring has been ordered. May include its' own experiences. Ordered from LazyDays. Spring is in and works well.

Hufficon RV Mods

Posted 04-21-2017 at 12:46 PM by Hufficon
Updated 04-25-2017 at 08:45 PM by Hufficon (fix picture)

Okay, so I bought a new to us 2003 Newmar Scottsdale 3257, and since nothing is ever built to Hufficon standards I need to bring it up to "code". First I guess I should let you know a little about Hufficon, well, it's my Jeep. I fell in love with Jeeps back in the 60's but it was in the early 80's before I found one I could afford. I found an old 1953 CJ-3B that I bought off of my uncle-in-law for $1000. Okay that's not Hufficon. The deal is I ended up (after several Jeeps) with my current...

Backpacking Through Colombia

Posted 04-14-2017 at 06:38 AM by CascadeBob

Trapped in Colombiaís Guijira Peninsula
From Trip Reports, imaginetraveldiscover.com

Itís a hurricane and itís headed right for us!
Thatís the news we got from Franko, our guide. Worse, we were stranded in the tiny indigenous Wayuu village of Bahia Hondita deep in Colombiaís Guajira Peninsula (Wah-HE-rah); a land of hot, scrub and cactus covered desert that juts into the Caribbean Sea like a fist from the northern coast of Colombia and Venezuela. This is...
