One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is meeting up with the many friends we have made in our travels all over the country. Sometimes these meetings are planned in advance and other times it’s more of a spur of the moment type thing. Or, just kismet. I can’t tell you how many […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we had one of the shortest moves ever in our sixteen years as fulltime RVers, just 7 1/2 miles. But oh what a difference that short distance made! Since we didn’t have far to go we didn’t get up until 8:30 a.m., which is later than usual for us on a traveling day. Then […]

If you have to spend the day in a big city, Seattle is one of the nicest you can choose to do it in. And commuting there on the ferry from Bremerton is the best way to do it. Yesterday morning we left Greg and Jan’s truck at a parking lot on the waterfront, and […]

Today is Miss Terry’s birthday, so before I do anything else, I want to wish her a very, very happy birthday. I love you very much, my darling. Thank you for sharing your life with me. We started yesterday off with a visit to the Tillamook Air Museum, a former World War II airship base, […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

We left the Oceano, Elks campground a little after 9 a.m. and headed north on U.S. Highway 101. Morning fog was lingering over the coast, and according to the dashboard thermometer in my Winnebago motorhome, the outside temperature was 60 degrees. As we moved further inland, the fog dissipated and the temperature began to climb. […]

Working Away

I spent most of yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, making and receiving telephone calls about our upcoming Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally, and making plans for future rallies. I had hoped to be almost done with the new issue by now, but I got lazy and didn’t keep on top of […]

Yesterday Miss Terry finished installing the last of the new Levolor window blinds in our motorhome, and this last one came out just as beautifully as the others did! I am so lucky to be married to such a talented woman. A few readers have written to ask if the blinds rattle going down the […]

We spent the day yesterday with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis, who had invited us to their beautiful home in Pinetop for dinner and a visit. It was a great day, with the comfort that old friends of many years just naturally share. There are two or three men in this world that I […]

Holiday Weekend

We can tell it’s a holiday weekend, because the traffic is terrible in this little mountain community as people escape the heat of the desert and come up here to cool off. Up until now, besides the campground host, we have usually been sharing the Elks campground with only  one or two other RVs. But […]
