Things in the Road

Piddlin’ outside the NO Princess Palace

It is just sorta the way it goes down here in the Puckerbrush. The weather has been admirable; after all it is my favorite time of the year. A few mornings down into the high 40’s and then quick to warm up to 80 or better. Still shorts and sandals weather for sure. And then this morning, frost on the windshield of the Big Ass Suburban.  BAM!; just like that! No easin’ into it or getting acclimated. It just was.  I got a flowback crew that come in yesterday so I was out and

Me and the '96 Camaro at Nashvegas

A few years back when I was still doing the race car thing,  I trekked off to Nashville Superspeedway for a weekend of racing.   I took the Old Girl and my 28′ enclosed car hauler with the ’96 Camaro in it.  One of the unexpected bonuses to the trip were the parking accommodations.

Winter Heating for Your RV - 2011 Edition

Every year about this time I re-visit the subject of winter heating for your recreational vehicle. This post from 2009 explores how we stay warm in the Old Girl through a moderate Texas winter.   I am thankful we don’t try to winter over farther north in an RV.  They are just not made to endure day after day of extreme cold.  I do have one reader that I know of, Coal, who winters over in a Fiver In Canada so it can be done. I am not that tough by a long shot.   Boondocking during a mild Texas winter is
