A Change Of Scenery

The great thing about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors or the neighborhood, you can leave. Or sometimes just because hitch itch sets in and you want a new view out your windows. We love Elkhart Campground, but after a couple of months there we were ready for a change […]

For the last few days it sounded like we were living in a war zone as people were popping off fireworks all over the place at every hour of the day and night. There is a nice neighborhood across from Elkhart Campground that backs up to Simonton Lake and I think every man, woman and […]

Happy birthday America. Yes, we have our problems, and there are a lot of things that need changing, but isn’t it wonderful to live in a country where we can complain about the government out loud and not worry about storm troopers kicking in our door late at night? I’ve been around the world and […]

We had a wonderful time visiting Berni and Rocky in Muskegon, Michigan, a town where there is so much to see and do that you would have to work hard to be bored. We never have enough time to even scratch the surface when we visit. The weekly Farmers Market is a good place to […]

Congratulations to Linda Strid,this week’s winner of our drawing for an autographed copy of Miss Terry’s Kitchen. We had 345 entries in this week’s contest, which is a new record by a wide margin.

Yesterday was a day for kids and kites. I started out sitting outside with Greg and Jan and Greg’s cat Mister, who doesn’t know he’s a cat. I’m not sure what he thinks he is, but it’s definitely not a cat. I secretly think he’s really a dog in cat’s fur. I like cats about […]

With the rain gone and the temperature much warmer, yesterday was absolutely beautiful here in northern Indiana. We were up early because Luke and Jody Duquette from Workamper News were leaving Elkhart Campground and had offered to come by and pick up a bundle of sample copies of the Gypsy Journal to pass out in […]

Apparently my Yahoo e-mail account, editor@gypsyjournal.net was hacked. If anybody gets an e-mail with From Nick Russell in the subject line please delete and DO NOT open the link. I apologize for any inconvenience. The huge Shipshewana Flea Market is a major tourist draw and when the market is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, they […]

Severe storms were predicted for the Elkhart area Tuesday night, with winds up to 60 MPH, lightning, rain and hail. We got the rain, lots of thunder and lighting, and some hail, but fortunately it wasn’t nearly as bad as predicted. But it sure was a noisy night that made sleeping difficult for a lot […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]
