We spent four nights at the Elks lodge in Florence, but by yesterday, I was ready for a change of scenery. So it was time to move on. We pulled out of the Elks lodge, and drove a mile or two to the city marina and campground to use their dump station. I’m sure glad […]

Mornings Are Overrated

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]

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 […]

When the alarm went off at 7:15 yesterday morning, we both wanted to throw it out the window and roll over for another 400 winks. I mean, what the heck good is a measly 40 winks going to do anybody? But alas, it was one of those days when we had to act like grownups […]

I give up! I’m not even going to whine and snivel about the cold anymore. It doesn’t do a bit of good anyway. I’m just going to buy me a team of huskies, hook them to the front end of my motorhome, and go on down the road. God seems to want me to be […]

I’m Finally Warm!

Today is officially the last day I’m waking up early for a long time! We fell into this nasty habit over a week ago, and every morning we have been getting up much too early. As Deputy Barney Fife used to say in the old Andy Griffith television show, “It’s time to nip it! Nip […]

We got a rude awakening yesterday when we got the keys to the building here at Elkhart Campground where we plan to have our vendor booths, seminars, and evening entertainment. We have outgrown it before our Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally even starts!  As soon as Terry and I started measuring the big new room where […]

Keep your raincoats buttoned up, you perverts! That’s not what I’m talking about! Do you flash your headlights to let truckers and other RVs know it is safe to pull back into the lane ahead of you after they pass? I’m curious. If you do (and we all should), how many of them blink their […]

We were so tired Saturday night that we were in bed by 9:30 p.m. and I waited until Sunday morning to post the blog. We had a rainy night, and were wide awake before 7 a.m. Sunday, and on the road before 8 a.m., which was a new record for us. We passed through Montgomery […]

The title of today’s blog pretty much sums up how I have felt for the last two days. All the while we were driving north toward Indiana, we were passing RVs going in the other direction. In the past, when we have been the southbound RV and we have spotted rigs going north late in […]
