2 Corinthians 11:19


The Outer Banks, NC



I try so hard. I really do. Usually, I succeed. But every once in a while I just lose it. So it was today when we arrived at Ocean Waves Campground in Waves, NC.









After plunking down $52.00 per night and being told what a bargain we got, we proceeded to our campsite.

Over the years of camping in every kind of campground with jury-rigged hookups, I have developed a “Fresh Water Hookup Kit.” It has evolved to overcome just about every possible variation in sloppy plumbing that I have encountered. It has worked well … until today. Just when I thought I had seen everything …

What’s wrong with this picture?

Every RVer should know what’s wrong.
So should every campground owner and never let it happen.
Everyone else should be able to figure it out in less than a minute.
Here is my hookup
And here is today’s poll questions:
1. What is wrong with this picture?
2. Is this campground owner:
a) Stupid
b) Lazy
c) Cheap
d) All of the above
Post your answers/opinions as comments to this post.

Let's End At The Beginning

Lake Itasca, MN


Where Does the Mississippi River Begin?


I have many posts yet to write about this Great River Road trip. I'll be posting them all winter. But this one is special and I want it to be posted in real time. Today we went to Itasca State Park, MN and stood in the water at the beginning of the Mississippi River.

The Fourth of July


United States of America




While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home


Watch, Listen, Remember
