Okay, I was wrong and Jan White was right, and I publicly admit it. But I have to tell you, it’s really hard to do that. Jan is a fan of the CBS daytime television show The Talk, starring Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, and Holly Robinson Peete, and a couple of […]

I Found It!

Every fulltime RVer gets asked one question from almost everybody they meet – “What’s your favorite place in the country to visit?’ I always tell people that I don’t have just one favorite. That’s like asking me which one of my kids I love the most. It’s impossible to choose just one. But I always […]

We spent yesterday getting to know two of my favorite artists a little better. One is known for the pictures he paints on canvas, and the other is even more famous for the pictures he paints with words. We started out in Salinas, at the National Steinbeck Center, where native son John Steinbeck is honored […]

I try to be upbeat in this blog, but anybody who knows me knows that I don’t pull any punches either, and I give you the good with the bad. Not to be a downer, but today I have a couple of the bad to share. Even though I am married to the best cook […]

America really is a land of contrasts, and probably no more so than in the American West. That fact was brought home to us yesterday in our drive from Williams, Arizona to Bakersfield, California. We left Williams, at almost 7,000 feet, about 9:30 in the morning, and before long we had begun to drop down […]

Our old hometown of Show Low, here in Arizona’s White Mountains, was first settled by Mormon pioneers, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) still has a strong influence on the community. However, not everybody here is a member of the church, and I guess the owner of this Jeep wanted to […]

 In spite of very slow internet service, Kingman, Arizona has a couple of things going for it that make the city well worth a visit, especially if you enjoy history as much as we do. The Mohave Museum of History and Arts has many interesting displays on the area, from Native Americans to gold prospectors, […]

Every RVer is different. Some of us like motorhomes, and some like trailers. Some of us like to move around from place to place, seldom staying longer than a week in any location, while others like to “put down roots,” and often stay several months at a time in one place. There are those of […]

Through a herculean effort on the part of Miss Terry, we got the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed out, and now we can take a deep breath and relax. At least until next time. In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how Cheryl Howarth from Miller Insurance helped us get the ball rolling with […]

Quite a few RVs have left Rainbow Plantation here in Summerdale, Alabama as people head off for the holidays. We have talked to people who are going as far north as Louisville and as far west as California to be with family and friends. Others, like us, are hunkering down in a comfortable RV park […]
