We haven’t stepped outside the motorhome for the last two days but we’ve sure been busy! I’ve been studying the calendar and making reservations for our summer travels. We usually don’t like to be tied up to a schedule if we can avoid it, but since we plan to be on the Oregon and Washington […]

She’s At It Again

We’ve been so busy traveling, working the Escapade rally, dealing with medical appointments, and getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to go to press that Terry has not had time for weaving. But we’ve finally got some much needed downtime and she’s back at it. She sleyed this job onto her loom […]

Back To Tucson VA

We have to be up and out the door early today to make a 110 mile run back to the Tucson VA hospital for a couple more medical appointments this afternoon. Nothing serious, just routine stuff they didn’t have time to do when we were there a couple of weeks ago. It’s a lot quicker […]

There has been a lot of talk about the recent brawl at the Cottonwood, Arizona WalMart, where a family living in a vehicle attacked a store employee and then police officers who responded to the store’s calls for help. By the time it was over, a policeman had been shot, one of the suspects was […]

Our time in Tucson is over and today we leave Voyager RV Resort for Apache Junction. We’ve been here over three weeks and during that time we have not had one day to just chill out and relax. It’s been a whirlwind of annual medical appointments, working the Escapees Escapade rally, more medical stuff, and […]

Another Windy Day

One thing you can count on in Arizona during late winter through summer is wind. Lots and lots of wind. And yesterday was another very windy day here in Tucson. I was sure glad we were not out on the highway. But we did see a few RVs leaving Voyager RV Resort and new ones […]

Running Our Legs Off

Or our wheels, at least. We’ve been going pretty much non-stop since we got to Tucson, getting all of our annual medical appointments taken care of. Monday was Terry’s turn, and yesterday was mine. We arrived at the VA hospital a little after 9 a.m. and I didn’t have to wait long before they took […]

A Lot Going On

We’ve had a lot going on and have been busy ever since we got to Tucson on Monday. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to ease up anytime soon. Wednesday I got my lab work done at the VA hospital in preparation for medical appointments next week. The blood draw went fine and then […]

A Tailwind? No Way!

We left the Escapees Dream Catcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico and experienced that most rare of natural phenomena, a tailwind. Yeah, I know, I thought they were a myth myself, one of those made up things like leprechauns and wood nymphs, and I was so surprised that I almost fell off my unicorn. […]

We love exploring America’s back roads and small towns and finding overlooked gems that the tourist brochures never cover. In a series of weekly blog posts we will be sharing some of America’s lesser-known small town museums, historic sites, and oddball attractions, on a state-by-state basis. Bisbee: Known as the Queen of the Copper Mines, […]
