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 […]

Or even waddle. It was 92 here in Colonial Beach yesterday with sky-high humidity. In other words, it was a good day to stay home and give our Winnebago’s air conditioner a good workout. Hopefully it will start cooling down so we can enjoy getting out and exploring the area. Being at home meant that […]

The weatherman predicted heavy rains for yesterday and he wasn’t fibbing! It started coming down just after midnight and never stopped all day long. Sometimes it eased up to just a light shower, but then it would pour again. It was still raining 24 hours later when I was getting this blog ready to post […]

After reading yesterday’s blog where I advised people not to wait to follow their dreams, I got two e-mails from readers telling me that they want to experience the fulltime RV lifestyle but can’t because A) In one case their daughter told them if they do she will disown them and they will never know […]

We’ve been putting in long, hard days at the hospital with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis as she draws closer to what appears to be the inevitable. It’s not the way we’d prefer to be spending our time, but it’s what is needed now for the people we love. Jim and I go back […]

Note: This story first ran in the July-August 2006 edition of the Gypsy Journal. In Metropolis, Illinois, which bills itself as the “official home” of comic book character Superman, we discovered a museum devoted exclusively to the Man of Steel. The SuperMuseum is home to the largest collection of Superman memorabilia in the world. The […]

One of our favorite places to eat in Tucson is Luke’s Italian Beef Sandwiches. We have eaten at the Luke’s on Fort Lowell Road many times over the years and have always had excellent service and food. We recommend it in our guide to Favorite Restaurants RVers Will Love. But we had a very bad […]

No, not that artsy-fartsy New Mexico city that we were disappointed in when we visited last summer. Today we’re headed back to Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction for a week or so. We want to spend some time visiting with Terry’s parents, and to check in with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis, […]

A Play Day

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I’ve been hitting it pretty hard the last few days and was starting to feel a bit burned out. So I decided to play hooky from my desk and go play yesterday. The four of us left Charles and Chris’ lot in the Yuma Foothills, and after a stop […]
