A full moon hangs low in the west, playing through wisps of cloud left over from the rain earlier in the night.

Appreciate the Simple Things

Some days I sit in front of my laptop and wonder what I’m going to write about. On those days when I have no big adventure to share, inspirational words to impart, or bits of hard earned wisdom for would-be RVers, I scratch my head and reach for mundane things that some of my readers [...]
