It’s been very windy here at the Thousand Trails campground in Cottonwood, Arizona, with more wind predicted today. Which makes it perfect kite flying weather. But alas, the only thing I’ve been flying is my keyboard. The good news is I’m making steady progress on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I’m on […]

Yesterday was a busy day for us. Terry had a dentist appointment at 11 AM, and then we drove over to LensCrafters so she could talk to the doctor about a problem with her new contact lenses. A few days ago she went for an eye exam, and came out wearing bifocal contacts. At first […]

I have been so busy lately that I’ve gotten behind in my blog reading, so it wasn’t until last night that Miss Terry told me about Chris Guld’s blog from February 10th, titled My Problem with Nick Russell. At first I thought I was in trouble, but as it turns out, it was actually a […]

We love small town festivals, and in our years on the road, we’ve been to many of them, from coast to coast and border to border. We’ve seen Mexican dancers at Verde Valley Days in Camp Verde, Arizona; tapped our toes to bluegrass music at the Tennessee Fall Homecoming in Clinton, Tennessee; watched basket weavers […]

We left the Western Horizons campground in Camp Verde a little after 10 a.m. yesterday morning, driving east on State Route 260. I was a bit apprehensive about traveling this winding two lane road through the mountains in our 40 foot diesel pusher motorhome, but I needn’t have been. The Winnebago handled it with no […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, headed for Home Depot for more parts for the bathroom faucet project. I’m not sure why I was up so early, since Miss Terry and Greg were the ones working on the faucet. Sometimes I think they drag me along just for ballast. As I […]

It had been way too long since we we had seen my daughter Tiffany and her family, so yesterday morning Terry and I were up bright and early for a road trip to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. We left the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve about 9:30 and followed State Route 260 […]

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I had purchased a new Garmin 465T trucker model GPS, and a couple of blog readers asked me to let them know what I thought of the new unit, after using it for a while. After traveling about 1,000 miles with the GPS. I have to say that […]

Even though Spring has barely sprung, many of the RVers we know are already on the road, starting their summer travel adventures. Some have been sitting still all winter long in one snowbird roost or another from Florida, to Texas, to Arizona and southern California, and have a bad case of hitch itch. Others have […]
