Friday morning it was the sound of race cars going through their paces at the nearby track that woke us up here at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park in Tucson, Arizona. Yesterday morning it was the wind. Actually, it woke us up several times during the night as it rocked our motorhome and rattled […]

The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

Note: We are revisiting some of our favorite old places that we’ve been to before, and sharing some of their stories again from our previous visits. At the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, we found an impressive collection of nautical exhibits that tell the story of North Carolina’s seafaring past, and how it has […]

As most regular readers know, Terry and I enjoy exploring old cemeteries. Whenever you think your life is rough, just spend an hour or so wandering through a cemetery reading […]

In a blog about being two-gether that I wrote few months ago, I said that communication and compromise are necessary to work out problems in any relationship, and especially for an RVing couple. I think that many times problems arise because someone doesn’t understand what their partner needs or wants, and this may be because […]

Two In One Week

I crossed two things off my bucket list this week. Well, at least 1½. First, I had a #1 book on Amazon, and yesterday I caught a saltwater fish from a pier. How many of us get to accomplish two milestones in such a short time? While bridges scare me, for some weird reason I […]

We thought about staying at North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina longer because we really liked the campground and I would have liked to have toured the Museum of the Albemarle in nearby Elizabeth City. But they are having their annual seafood festival this week and we didn’t have advance reservations, so it was […]

I have a reputation for bringing bad weather with me wherever I go, and I’ve done it again. I broke Yuma. And this isn’t the first time I’ve done it. A couple of years ago we were holding one of our Gypsy Journal rallies at the fairgrounds here, and the city got more than its […]
