We took to the high seas!


I apologize if we have missed answering anyone’s message or comment this past week. We decided to make Niki’s Birthday/Christmas present a little more special this year and we took a week’s cruise on Holland America’s Eurodam out of Fort Lauderdale.

We had a good time, met some very nice people and of course ate far too much and too often.


We visited Grand Turk….

San Juan, Puerto Rico….


St. Thomas….
and the trip wound up with a visit to the Cruise Line’s private Island at Half Moon Cay.

They treated Niki well for her birthday

and we saw a bit of how the other half lives!

I thought our friends might like to see some photos of a warmer place as we head for a long cold spell.

and Happy Birthday Sweetie,


On the Road Again… and Again!


As many of our friends know, we sold our 5th Wheel and F-250 this past Spring. The steps were just becoming too difficult for Niki to negotiate and still call it fun. My eyesight is not what it once was and I was uncomfortable guiding our ten ton missile down the road amongst all the crazies on the road that believe an RV can stop on a dime.

That was then. We spent the Summer off the road – the first in eight years – and we decided we missed it a bunch, so the logical answer was just to downsize a bit. We took delivery of our new home on wheels today. These Roadtrek Class B’s are amazing!

It is equipped with a generator and inverter for boondocking (if we were so inclined.)

Included also – Awning, AC, furnace, two-burner gas range, microwave, furnace, back-up camera, 24″ TV with BluRay CD/DVD Surround Sound, 5cu. ft. fridge, pull-out pantry, electric sofa/bed.

More adventures, routes and stories to come. We are Niki and Jack and we invite you to join us.

Calling all Florida Work Campers

Are you a Florida “Work Camper”?

We have just received a request from a German journalist who is coming to Florida and is planning to research a piece about “Workampers” – how they live, how they survive, how they celebrate life for the news magazine DER SPIEGEL.

He is looking for the best camping or RV sites in Florida to meet work campers who would “be so kind to tell me about their lifestyle.”

If you are such a person or know such a person and would like to be interviewed, send me a note with where you are working and a brief note about your work and I will forward it to him. If you own or manage a campground or RV park in Florida that employs work campers send me a note.
