Any parent knows that we often don’t see the changes as our children grow up. But when we look back at old pictures we wonder how things changed so fast. Looking back over our 17+ years as fulltime RVers, I’m amazed at the changes we have seen. Most of them good, some not so good. […]

We have been parked on Charles and Christ Yust’s lot here in the Yuma Foothills for a couple of weeks now, and Miss Terry decided that it was time she showed our appreciation. So yesterday, while I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, she made a wonderful Mexican dinner of shredded beef […]

It seems like the worst of the storms that have hammered the Pacific Northwest coastal region have passed on out of the region, and we’re ready to do the same thing. We plan to start heading south today. We’re going to take Interstate 5 to Mount Shasta, California, where we’ll pick up State Route 89 […]

Even though they call me Gadget Boy because I always like to check out the newest electronic gadgets, that doesn’t mean I understand how any of them work. And I usually get as much frustration as I do enjoyment out of a lot of the stuff out there. Our Verizon 3G air card and wireless […]

Hosting an RV rally is quite a job, and even though we’ve been at this long time, every rally presents its own unique challenges, even if it’s in a venue we know well like the Yuma Fairgrounds. A lot of the rally chores we have to do have become routine; setting up the seminar schedule, […]

It has started to warm back up, here in Central Florida. Yesterday the mercury in our thermometer climbed to 72 degrees, and by Monday, it’s supposed to be all the way up to 79. Now that’s more like it! Of course, our friends who are spending the winter in snowbird hotspots like the Rio Grande […]

For the last couple of days, all we have done is work on getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed out, and we have made a big dent in it. Well, Miss Terry has made a big dent in it! My job is basically to stay out of the way and be eye […]

We had planned to take the ferry over to Seattle yesterday, but I wasn’t feeling well, so I wimped out and spent most of the day being lazy. I think Miss Terry was just as happy to stay home and relax after all of her work the day before, smoking ribs for our Independence Day […]

We spent yesterday walking the waterfront here in Newport, poking our heads into shops, watching the fishing boats coming and going, and people watching. Newport is one of my favorite towns along the Oregon coast, the perfect cross of working fishing port and tourist destination, not too commercialized, laid back, and friendly. Years ago, when […]

Before I do anything else, I want to take a minute to wish my daughter Tiffany happy birthday. I love you, Tiff, and I’m looking forward to seeing you in a few days. Yesterday I made the final changes to the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and uploaded it to the printer’s server. It […]
