Yesterday was a long day that started out with a real scare, but it all worked out and when all was said and done, it was all worth it. We were up by 7:30, and after the usual rounds of answering e-mails and deleting junk mail and forwards we hit the road, pulling out of […]

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 […]

We got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed off yesterday afternoon, which is always a good feeling. So watch your mailboxes, they’ll be there as soon as all of those heavily armed disgruntled postal workers can get them to you. Now we can concentrate on playing for the next six […]

Yesterday we were up and out the door bright and early for the second day in a row. We really need to stop that. After a quick stop for gas, we were headed north on Interstate 17 toward Flagstaff to pick up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal from our printer. Since we would […]

Winter has returned to Arizona with a vengeance. All Thursday night, and all day Friday, the wind rocked our motorhome, and the sky was gray and ugly. I’m still not feeling all that great, so it was a good day to stay inside. I did some work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, […]

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 […]

A Plumbing Day

Yesterday was a plumbing day here at the RV park. I once had a friend who owned a plumbing company, and he taught me everything I needed to know about the trade – Crap and water flow downhill; payday is on Friday; and keep your fingers out of your mouth! 🙂 Terry decided that yesterday […]

A Great Traveling Day

Yesterday was a great RV traveling day. We started late, finished early, put on 230 miles, saw some pretty country, and arrived in one piece, with no breakdowns or troubles. It just doesn’t get much better than that! We pulled out of the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park at 10:30 a.m., and had a little […]

All RVers love food, and one of the great things about the fulltime RV lifestyle is the opportunity to try the local fare at the restaurants wherever we are traveling. So I was surprised when a fulltiming couple I met a while back told me that they never eat anywhere except chain restaurants. “That way […]
