Places and PlaytypieYouTubePinterestTwiiterfacebookSo, here we are enjoying the full-time RV lifestyle in a 29' Winnebago Outlook motor home. How did we come to live in a camper? Two sensible people who loved their life in New York City. Now we travel from campground to RV park to boondocking at stadium tailgating parties or in the desert with joyful abandon. We call our [mobile] home "Maybe". We are slowly visiting places around the United States. On our continental USA-RV travels, complete with our dog, we follow the coast of this country, visit unique places, eat good food, and stay as green as possible with our four panel solar power array and tell you about it in this travel blog.

Battleship North Carolina
We have visited numerous historic naval vessels around the US, usually with our son Michael (and Kate). In Wilmington, NC, we visited the 729 foot long Battleship North Carolina with its 15,000 tons of steel armor plate. When underway, her gas milage was 32 feet per gallon. It was fascinating because we could go below deck and see how the crew lived. In fact, we liked it so much that we bought all three cheesy pictures of us with different backgrounds. Plus - she was built in Brooklyn.

Tri-colored Collie

Meet Harry Fly Taylor, Our First Tri-colored Collie: We have a new puppy! We have a new puppy! A big baby, that still has a tiny puppy squeaky-bark. We’re teaching him to man up and lower the bark. Yup, we're doing a lot of basso barking to encourage him.

Did I mention, we have a NEW PUPPY? read more


Rolex Kentucky: Best Weekend All Year

Rolex Kentucky: Best Weekend All Year: Dressage, Cross-Country and Stadium Jumping: We joined 4 young teenage girls, one mother and 60 horse-and-rider combinations from seven nations to watch the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event last weekend. It was a thrilling (exhausting for us) marathon. One of the girls, Sophie Gary, has written a wonderfully breathless account of the events that absolutely captures the tempo of the weekend. And so, if Jack Kerouac had been a young girl, one who loved her best buds and horses, it might have gone something like this... Sophie is officially our first Guest Writer... read more
