Charlies Service Sunset Utah

  We had a beautiful drive from St. George along I-15 to north of Salt Lake City to Charlie’s Service in Sunset, Utah (next to Ogden).  Charlie’s had specialized in Alfa Motorhomes years ago but today it services all types of motorhomes and also specializes in classic cars.  Many Alfa Owners use Charlie’s if they are in the area. We …

Edberg Alberta

Edberg is a small town in central Alberta about 34 km south of Camrose and 119km south of Edmonton. It lies on the prairie with rolling foothills and plenty of productive agriculture and farming. The landscapes are breathtaking and definitely worth a drive around the outskirts of town to soak in the wonderful farm and country life. One of the …

Hayden Lake Idaho

It is a lovely, beautiful, warm day so we thought we would head to the lake and take a spin (and lunch) on the pontoon boat before the madness that is the 4th of July weekend sets in. It was before lunch and The Boathouse Restaurant was all set up for their lunchtime patrons. Our lunch was packed so we …

Garmin GPS opening unit

My latest little project has been replacing the battery in our Garmin GPS. We have been using this Garmin GPSMAP 276C since 2003 and although it is old we haven’ t found one that has functions that we like any better.  The main things we like are that it is waterproof so we can use it on the motorcycle as …

Wouldn’t you know it!  We never need to be somewhere at a certain time in the morning but this morning, well, we go to leave and we have a flat tire and we needed to be somewhere in 15 minutes. Haven’t had a flat in a long, long, long time. All we can figure is we were out driving San …

Those Young Guys - Alfa See Ya Motorhome - Delamination

Yep, we encountered a bit of delamination on a few of our side doors on our motorhome. We think it happened last winter when we had to make an emergency trip to the snowy, cold north and the doors must have had water in them and then froze. Boom, there you go, some delamination appeared on one side and just …

Those Young Guys - Alfa See Ya Motorhome - Solar Panels

We love boon docking and/or dry camping since we both like to get away from the big RV parks and do hiking and exploring in the less crowded areas so I started thinking how we could improve the experience. We have a 40′ DP which has a 7.5 kVA diesel generator so we had lots of power but it is …

Suncoast Designs

Yep, we needed our RV windows defogged. A few of them were a bit foggy and only getting worse. We had read about Suncoast Designers and called and made an appointment months before as we knew we planned to be in the Tampa area. We stayed there a few days while getting our window cleaned. They even give you a …

Those Young Guys - Hydralift

Well, we finally did it. After researching and researching and researching on the best way to haul a motorcycle we finally decided to break down and buy a hydralift. They are expensive but we found one on ebay in Southern Oregon. The owner was gracious enough to meet us halfway so we rented a U-Haul trailer and drove to Biggs …
