The Halfway Point

Yesterday was another stay at home day for us. We started the day with some more of Miss Terry’s delicious made from scratch brown butter yeasted waffles, and they were fantastic. I was never a waffle man before, my taste ranging more towards French toast, until the first time Terry made me waffles. But there’s […]

We Are Fine

We had a lot of e-mails and Facebook posts yesterday from people asking if we were okay. Yes, we’re fine, and we appreciate your concern. The bad weather that hammered much of the southeast Tuesday missed us here in central Florida. We got some rain, but that was about it. We have some of the […]

Why?

I heard from somebody yesterday who was headed south in the middle of the bad storms that are chewing up the Carolinas. He said it was raining so hard that he could not see his friend’s motorhome, less than 100 feet ahead of him, but they were making good time in spite of the downpour. […]

Four Pages To Go

I have spent most of the last week working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and only have four pages to go before I send it off to the printer Sunday. I was hoping to get it wrapped up yesterday, but something went haywire with the layout about 9:30 PM and I worked […]

Let’s Try Again

Today we’re going to try again to get our motorhome’s two piece windshield replaced. We had an appointment for last Friday but it was cancelled at the last minute, so hopefully we can get it done. Both sides have big cracks in them and I really want to get them done before we head south […]

If you’re anywhere near the Oregon coast, put in your awnings, batten down the hatches, and hang on. A big storm is coming in and the weatherman says we can expect lots of rain, and 25 – 35 mile per hour winds with gusts to 45 today. It’s definitely not a day to be outside, […]

I’ll Be Switched

As I said the other day, every time an RV goes rolling down the highway it’s subject to earthquake forces as it bounces over potholes and through rough construction zones. So it’s no wonder that things shake loose or break from time to time. A few days ago Terry started a load of laundry and […]

On To Hondo

When the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning I wanted nothing more than to roll over and go back to sleep. But it was a travel day so I drug myself out of bed, sniveling all the way. Terry seemed to be over her cold for the most part, but mine was still in […]

Windex…. Who Knew?

Thank you to everybody who sent me suggestions for products and home remedies for the gnat bites that have been driving me mad. As it turns out, Miss Terry had the best answer, Windex. Yes, regular glass cleaner with ammonia in it. She told me to put some on my arms and darned if it […]

We had planned to leave Morehead City today and continue our southward journey, but a nasty storm system tracking through the country is bringing lots of wind and rain to this region of the coast, so we’re going to stay here until it passes through. It’s part of that flexibility that all fulltime RVers have […]
