Wow, it’s over already? That was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2016 like for us? We started the year in Tucson, Arizona, where I was getting follow-up treatment at the VA hospital for a medical issue that […]

A Change Of Plans

When we left Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange yesterday morning, we planned to come to the Elks lodge in St. Augustine and spend a few days, maybe as much as a week, before we continued north. One of the great things about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors […]

A Good Day On the Road

Thunderstorms were predicted for Baldwin County, Alabama yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to be on the road and well ahead of them before they arrived. So we left the Escapees Rainbow Plantation co-op a few minutes after 9 AM, headed for Florida. And it was a good day on the road. We had just under […]

We loved our week with my son and his wife in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but all too soon it was time to say goodbye and hit the road. Travis and Geli came over about 9 a.m. yesterday to see us off, and after a lot of hugs and a few tears shed, we left the Elks […]

We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night. […]

A Slow 90 Miles

The mid-term elections are finally over, and I for one say, not a minute too soon. Now we can finally stop with all of the endless political ads telling us how bad the other guy (or gal) is and get back to advertising from pharmaceutical companies that want us to tell our doctors what meds […]

A Move South

We really enjoyed our two weeks at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, but all good things must come to an end, and it was time to move on. The great thing about being a fulltime RVer is that when you leave one good place, you can go right to another. And that’s just what we […]

In The Mail

Terry worked like a mad woman all weekend and finished up with the last of the envelope stuffing last night. Today we’ll take them to the post office and the new issue of the Gypsy Journal will be in the mail. It always feels good to get that chore behind us. While she was busy […]

Almost There!

I must have been worn out Friday night because I slept right through a brief but loud thunderstorm at the Claremore, Oklahoma Elks Lodge. I’m usually a light sleeper but Terry said I never flinched as she got up and closed the roof vent and came back to bed. Yesterday morning we were up early […]

Yesterday was a long day for us but it was worth it. After spending the last six or seven months in Arizona, we’re finally in a place with real grass, trees with leaves, and rivers with water in them! We spent Thursday night at the Elks lodge in Tucumcari, New Mexico and were up by […]
