Seriously, I know a lot of you have suspected it for a long time, and now I’m beginning to wonder, too. We left the beautiful Oregon coast because it was getting cold, with temperatures down into the 40s at night. And where did we end up? On California’s Central Coast, where it was in the […]

It was a cold, wet, windy weekend and I’m sure glad it’s over. Between strong wind, rain, scattered snow showers, light hail, and temperatures down in the upper 20s, it was a good time to stay inside. And that’s just what we did yesterday. Terry spent much of the day editing and proofing my new […]

Another Windy Day

One thing you can count on in Arizona during late winter through summer is wind. Lots and lots of wind. And yesterday was another very windy day here in Tucson. I was sure glad we were not out on the highway. But we did see a few RVs leaving Voyager RV Resort and new ones […]

Good Timing

I guess we timed our arrival at Elkhart Campground well on Sunday because the wind came up and it started raining in the wee hours of the morning yesterday and kept it up for much of the day. I was glad we weren’t out on the road in that kind of weather! A few RVs […]

The wind blew hard all Tuesday night at the Pima County Fairgrounds and the slide topper awning over our bedroom slide rattled and flapped so much it was like sleeping inside a bass drum. We had the slide toppers replaced a couple of years ago by a mobile awning guy in Apache Junction and he […]

We had planned to go to Benson and drop off sample copies of the Gypsy Journal yesterday and our plan for the next few weeks was to stay here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson until December 20, when we would head back to Apache Junction to spend Christmas with Terry’s family. But a […]

Warm Is Good!

Several blog readers wrote to tell me that driving 445 miles in one day like we did on Tuesday was insane and that we need to slow down. So I took their advice and only drove 435 miles yesterday. We left the Fernley (Nevada) WalMart and drove south on U.S. Highway 95, which was a […]

A storm system rolled in Saturday night, slamming the northern Oregon coast with high winds and pounding rain. At one point the weather service was reporting wind gusts of 45 miles per hour, and I wouldn’t have been surprised if some were even stronger. Our friends Dan and Jenny Sheppard left for Newport in the […]
