She’s At It Again

As I said in yesterday’s blog, on Friday Terry stocked up on yarn at a shop we found up in Gainesville, so she spent yesterday putting the skeins of yarn onto a swift and then wound them onto a ball winder. Then she wound the warp (don’t worry, I don’t understand most of it either) […]

We’re always looking for interesting places to visit and share with our readers and we’ve found many wonderful and fascinating attractions while we’ve been poking around in every corner of America. But we’re always surprised at how many places that are right under our noses get overlooked while we research the next location down the […]

The question for today is, what’s the point of being an early bird if you don’t like worms? It makes no sense to me. But we were up before 7 a.m. again yesterday. And yes, I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again. Mornings suck. Now don’t all of you […]

My Kind Of RV Trip

Since it was only 113 miles to our destination, we woke up about 8 a.m. yesterday and had a relaxed morning, checking e-mail and reading a couple of blogs before we started getting ready for our move down to Tucson. When I turned on our TireTraker tire pressure monitor it indicated that the Winnebago’s left […]

Hitting The Trail

After a slow paced morning of checking our favorite blogs, reading and answering e-mails, and relaxing, we picked up Greg and Jan in the early afternoon for a trip up the Apache Trail. State Route 88, the Apache Trail, was built in the early 1900s to carry building materials to the Roosevelt Dam construction project […]

Getting Some Work Done

I spent most of yesterday getting some work done. Actually, I got a lot of work done. At least by the end of the day, I felt like I had been working. Of course my work never involves any kind of physical labor if there is any way at all to avoid it. And since […]

Windy Williams

If there is one thing you can count on in northern Arizona in Spring, it is that it will be very windy. It sure has been, here in Williams. All night Thursday night, strong winds rocked our motorhome and rattled the slide room covers. We are sitting on a hill overlooking town, here at Canyon […]

It’s All Jello

Fulltime RVers always say that their plans are written in Jello, because we never know when something will come up to turn us in an entirely different direction than what we had intended. We’re experiencing a bit of that right now. We had originally planned to stay here in Show Low for a couple of […]

Roads And Rallies

We left the Western Horizons campground in Camp Verde a little after 10 a.m. yesterday morning, driving east on State Route 260. I was a bit apprehensive about traveling this winding two lane road through the mountains in our 40 foot diesel pusher motorhome, but I needn’t have been. The Winnebago handled it with no […]

Yesterday we were up and out the door bright and early for the second day in a row. We really need to stop that. After a quick stop for gas, we were headed north on Interstate 17 toward Flagstaff to pick up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal from our printer. Since we would […]
