Come to Arizona, they said. It’s the sunbelt, they said. It’s nice and warm in the winter, they said. They lied. Here in Tucson we had more rain Thursday night, and again off and on most of yesterday. And it was still darned cold. Here is a picture a blog reader sent me of the […]

Mission Accomplished

Yesterday morning I called around, trying to locate the drain pump for our Splendide washer/dryer combo. I was concerned, because Greg White had told me he couldn’t find Splendide parts in the Houston area and when he needed parts for his, he had to order them from Westland Sales in Clackamas, Oregon. But I got […]

By the time you read this, we will be sawing logs. For the last week, we’ve been getting up way too early and getting very little sleep. So we have a lot of ZZZZs to catch up on. Tom and Barbara Westerfield’s motorhome is parked in front of our Winnebago, and Greg and Jan White […]

I hope you didn’t get the idea from my last couple of blogs that RV rallies are all hard work and drudgery. Yes, we and our volunteers all do work really hard to make the rally a success. But we also have a lot of fun in the process! If you haven’t been to a […]

Terry and I have been busy the last couple of days with some projects around the motorhome that we really wanted to get out of the way while we’re sitting still for a while. One project was building a couple of kayak caddies to make moving our hard shell kayaks from the Explorer to the […]

Yeah, I know, you watch TV in your RV all the time. I do, too. In fact, I have for over twelve years now. But according to the dweebs at Dish Network, you can’t watch TV in an RV. Who knew? In Monday’s blog, titled You Win Some, You Lose Some, I wrote that Dish […]

By 7:20 yesterday morning I was pulling out of the Orlando Thousand Trails, taking the Explorer to Camping Connection to have the Blue Ox base plate and SMI auxiliary brake system installed so we can tow it behind our Winnebago motorhome. I actually got there a few minutes before their staff did, but once Tim, […]

Thank you to everybody who e-mailed get well wishes to us. We’ve come through the worst of it, and I think we’re going to live after all. Yesterday afternoon we drove into town and dropped off bundles of sample copies of the Gypsy Journal at several RV parks. We stopped at four or five different […]

Terry and I are still feeling crappy. I suspect that what we thought was a cold may be the flu. Whatever it is, it sucks.  We had better get well soon, because we’re about out of meds, and we both have cabin fever. I’d like to say that I’m taking advantage of the downtime to […]
