Watch “Balloonfest 2019 Invitation and Good VA News” on YouTube

Come on out to balloonfest 2019 in Ashland Ohio oh, it’s going to be a great time. The Usual Suspects are the band playing tonight. If you’re anywhere in the north central Ohio area or coming through that area this weekend, you may want to check out this awesome hot air balloon festival in Ashland Ohio.

I also give an update on good VA news. If you are a fellow veteran out there in need of advice or simply to chat with a fellow vet who’s been through this horrible process as well, shoot me an e-mail at I will do everything I can to help you. I look forward to chatting with you via email.

Watch “Hot Springs LTVA aka Old Fogey Hot Spring Holtville California” on YouTube

This video is a bit out of sequence. It sat in the can for a few months while Freedom and I traversed the United States to get back to our summertime home base in Ohio. It sure was an oasis for me and clearly the best, nearly free, camping spot in the Arizona and California border area.

If you are not familiar with the term LTVA, that means: Long Term Visitors Area within the BLM (United State Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management).

Watch “Saved $1,799.11 on this Breakdown” on YouTube

That’s right! I just saved a whopping $1,799.11 on this break down! The shop in Plain City Ohio was trying to charge $1,914.11 for a repair which just cost me all of $115!

Obviously my repair did not include labor cost, but it took two guys who are not professional mechanics all of one hour to get this repair complete.

If you need RV repair in the central Ohio area or any mechanical work in Plain City Ohio, feel free to email me and I’ll share the name of the shop with you so you can avoid them. My email address is
