RVing The Next Chapter!

Who new National and State Parks are often bereft of full hook-ups? For people, like me, who are not in the know, “dry” camping means the lack of a continuous water hook-up. Without this continuous water-hook-up, a subscribed amount of water has to be added to an RVs fresh water tank.   Filling up the … Continue reading

Glamping, Here I Come…. Well, Maybe!

Last summer, I’ve shared with you my previous escapade as a first time RV’er in the camper my husband suddenly “sprung” on me.  To say, at the time, I was under enthused was an understatement but as we know, the universe has a sense of humor.   For some unearthly reason, I find myself suddenly … Continue reading

NOT AGAIN!

Knowing that it was “spring ahead” time in a few weeks began a slow, creeping adrenaline rush that radiated from the core of my being.

Groupon opens up a world of opportunities, restaurants, products and adventures at a significantly discounted price; many of which, in the course of my normal life, I would never take advantage of. I’m a big proponent of staycations, which are mini retreats that involve minimal … Continue reading

Life is a Choice

As we approach the wedding season, it dawned on me that whom you marry determines a plethora of things that someone in love or lust may overlook. When I was in my late twenties, it occurred to me or as Oprah would say “I had an AHA” moment that this thing called marriage was a … Continue reading

Staycations, Are You Serious?

I live in what is considered a top vacation destination by many. On a good traffic day, New York City is less than an hour away. New York City is in a class all by itself with its hustling bustling activities and amazing sights and sounds on every conceivable corner. Long Island is equally a … Continue reading
