Google is a wonderful resource. You can find anything there. Need a recipe for sourdough bread? Just Google it! Trying to figure out how to set the points in a ’66 Pontiac Bonneville? Google it! Can’t remember the name of that obscure actor who drove the bus in some 1960s sitcom? Just Google it! Anything […]

Down To The Nubs

I spent much of the day yesterday getting the new digital edition of the Gypsy Journal uploaded to the internet and the link sent out to our digital subscribers. Somebody said that with all the time I’ve been at the keyboard the last week, I must be working my fingers down to nubs. They were […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after working a lot of hours this past week finishing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I planned to spoil myself and sleep in, and that’s just what I did! We got to bed about 3 a.m. and woke up about 10:30. I guess I needed it; I’m […]

Why Florida?

After I wrote that we are thinking very hard about switching our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida, a couple of blog readers wanted to know why, and a couple more asked if we had considered Texas. When we started fulltiming 15 years ago we switched from Arizona to Texas and used the Escapees […]

It’s getting way too hot here in Apache Junction for this kid. It was in the mid-90s yesterday and starting Monday we’re looking at triple digit temperatures for the next five days. I really want to be out of here. Unfortunately, while we will be leaving Wednesday morning, we’re headed for Tucson for at least […]

Hurry Up And Wait X 2

We were up before 8 o’clock again yesterday morning because Rob Gambol from Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center was coming to town for an Alfa rally and was going to stop by to install the PacBrake on our motorhome. As it turned out, we could have slept in. Rob called to tell me he […]

Yesterday morning Greg and Jan left the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park about 9:30, and we were up to see them off. There were a couple of rounds of hugs all around, and maybe a tear or two was shed, but we know we’ll see them again in late August when we meet up again […]

Back Home In Elkhart

How is it possible to leave home to go home? I’m not sure, but we did it yesterday. 🙂 After hugs all around, we said a reluctant goodbye to to our friends at Smith’s Campground & Cabins in Loudonville, Ohio and hit the road sometime after 10 a.m., traveling north on two lane back roads. […]

We Are In Celina!

Yesterday was the third morning in a row that I was up before 9 a.m. I think I need to have some sort of intervention to break this vicious cycle! 🙁 I answered a bunch of e-mails, logged in a couple of orders for digital Gypsy Journal subscriptions, and then we started getting ready to […]

In a blatant display of his total disregard for society, and totally ignoring any sense of responsibility toward his fellow man, yesterday morning my buddy Greg White fired up the big diesel engine in his American Eagle motorhome, loaded his pretty wife Jan inside, and took off for parts unknown. That’s right, he left me […]
