They’re Coming!

The temperatures in the desert are inching toward the triple digits and folks from Phoenix and Tucson are headed for the cool, comfortable high country of the White Mountains. We were out running errands yesterday and there was a steady stream of cars and campers rolling through Show Low. Two of those rigs that will […]

Well, after running through some more tests yesterday morning and a phone call to Westland Sales, which provides parts and service advice to Splendide washer/dryer owners, the news was not good. The control board is shot and replacement boards are no longer available for that model. Now what? Greg White told me to send him […]

Last Day In Gillette

This is our last day in Gillette and I think we’re both ready to get the wheels rolling to someplace new. Not that Gillette is a bad place, it’s actually a nice little town, and all of the people we have met in the stores and restaurants have been very friendly. But hitch itch is […]

Every year thousands of RVers go to Quartzsite, Arizona to shop the flea markets and RV show, hang out with their friends, and just enjoy the sunshine. And unfortunately, every year a few lose pets to coyotes and other wild animals. One couple I know was complaining recently that for the second year in a […]

The folks up north, where they’ve had snowfall after snowfall, may not believe it but summer really is coming. In fact, I think it’s right around the corner here in Arizona. The weatherman says we’ll be in the 90s all week. If you’re one of the people still shivering in the cold, take at look […]

Busy As A Bee

I was busy as a bee yesterday, probably because my honey was gone and I needed to keep busy. Terry’s parents picked her up at 6:45 a.m. and she spent most of the day with them running around to several medical appointments. She got home mid-afternoon with the news that her dad’s surgery will be […]

We pulled out of Harbor View Outdoor World Resort in Colonial Beach, Virginia a little after 9 AM yesterday morning and pointed the nose of our Winnebago southbound. The campground was closing for the season and it’s time to be someplace else. We had an easy 337 mile run down Interstate 95, skirting around the […]

I want to thank everybody who bought my new book, Crazy Days in Big Lake, and told their friends about it. When I got up yesterday morning, the book had already risen to #71 in Amazon’s E-book/Mystery/Police Procedural category, and by the end of the evening it was at #42. As if that weren’t enough, […]

We made our deadline easily yesterday, uploading the new issue of the Gypsy Journal to our printer’s web server about 4:30 PM. Then we waited for their prepress department to e-mail and let us know they had received it. That message came in about 6 PM, and we breathed a huge sigh of relief. They […]

Several years ago my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky tried out the fulltime RV lifestyle for a while and we spent some wonderful times together on the road. Early on, we were all sitting under their motorhome’s awning at Elkhart Campground and somebody came by with a copy of one of my RV […]
