Our friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for the last few weeks while he closed on his house and bought furniture and things he would be needing. Now he’s all moved in and this big old place of our seems a little empty. Some people said they couldn’t handle having company for that […]

Merry Christmas everybody! Wherever you are celebrating the holiday, whether it be home with family, at an RV park, or boondocking in the Arizona desert, Miss Terry and I want you to know that one of the greatest gifts we have ever received is your friendship and support.

Miss Terry Gets Smart

We¬†were up early again yesterday, since we are trying to readjust our sleeping patterns and get to bed earlier and get up earlier than normal. We have company visiting from out of state in a couple of weeks and we kind of thought it might be polite to not sleep the day away while they […]

One Bite At A Time

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. It’s the only way to get the job done. Just like you write a book one word at a time, or move into a house one box at a time. You just start at it and you keep on going until the job is […]

When we bought our house we knew there would be a lot of adjustments in making the transition from being fulltime RVers to RV snowbirds. Most have not been a big problem, a few have been funny, and yes there have been a couple of minor irritations, but nothing we can’t handle. One thing that […]

Moving into a 1600 s/f house with an 1100 s/f garage after 17 years of living in a 320 s/f motorhome is hard work and a hell of an adjustment! Terry said we don’t need to worry about exercise for a while, because just wandering around trying to figure out where to put stuff is […]

We will begin moving into our new home on Friday, and in the meantime we are keeping ourselves busy to help the time go faster. On Saturday we drove to the small town of De Land, about half an hour from here, to visit a couple of used furniture stores. We have already been making […]

By yesterday afternoon it was not as noisy around here as it had been for the last few days. There are still a lot of Harleys here, but the RV park is starting to thin out as bikers who were here for Biketoberfest are leaving. But the folks in the office tell me it will […]

Whenever I say that we have been looking around here for a winter base and someday home if we ever hang up the keys I get e-mails from people who ask me why we would consider living in Florida, the land of hurricanes. And I always reply that every place in the country has something, […]

Just Biding Our Time

We have spent the last few days just biding our time here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, waiting until we can go back to the coast. I’ve spent most of the time working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, researching some other writing projects, watching storm coverage on TV, and cruising […]
