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 […]

The latest news out of the Camping World/Good Sam crowd is that Camp Club USA, the highly touted discount campground membership program that Camping World has been selling for several years now, seems to be going away. In a recent message to members, Marcus Lemonis (remember him from yesterday’s blog?) has announced that Camp Club […]

We have met some wonderful people in our years on the road, and it’s always a treat to make new friends or to put a face to a name on a mailing label in our subscription base. We got to do that here in Bremerton. Longtime subscriber and faithful blog reader Dona Clayton lives just […]

A Four Hour Day

Yesterday was an easy traveling day for us, just four hours. We hardly had time to get our Cummins diesel engine warmed up! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I wasn’t sure where we were headed, either to the Lake Minden NACO campground a little north of Sacramento, or the Russian River NACO, near Cloverdale. […]

Yesterday was a day when I should have stayed in bed. I went outside to dump our black tank, and because the RV sites here at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve are so tight, I had to wiggle my chubby butt between a picnic table and the side of our RV. Then I discovered […]

Now, lest you think I’ve been chewing on loco weed or smoking wacky tobaccy, given my often expressed low opinion of Camping World and today’s blog title, let me say that I never hesitate to point out the shortcomings of the RV industry. But I also think that when a person or a company does […]

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’ve been working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, which I will be sending off to the printer early next week, and we still had a few bundles of the November-December issue left. We needed to get them distributed so we’d have room for the new issue after it’s printed. So yesterday, we […]

Wow, I go away for one afternoon and the whole world changes! What’s up with that? I had to get up earlier than usual for me yesterday morning, because I needed to be wide awake for a 9 a.m. conference call. I’ve found that folks tend to get offended or lose confidence in you if […]

We woke up to gusty winds and scattered showers Sunday morning. Normally, we would roll over and go back to sleep on such a gloomy morning, but we had company coming, so we had to get in gear. About 11 a.m. Mel and Charlene Schwartz arrived for a visit. I wrote about Mel and Charlene’s […]
