Our two weeks at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve is over and today is moving day for us. I can’t say that we’re sad to be leaving, and I doubt we’ll return to this campground again anytime soon. The campground is heavily treed, which makes satellite TV reception iffy at best and only has […]

Yesterday we got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal in the mail. It’s always good to get that chore behind us. And to get the load off of our hard working Ford Explorer. It can be a challenge to find enough stamps in the correct denominations, and quite often no post […]

We seem to be developing a very bad habit of getting up way too early in the morning, and yesterday was no exception. We were up at 7:30 again, because we had a lot to see and do. and it’s a good thing we got such an early start, because we were on the go […]

We woke up to rain yesterday morning, and it never let up all day long. It wasn’t a hard rain, just one of those gray, drizzly Pacific Northwest coastal days that I remember so well from the years I lived in this region. The temperature never hit 60 all day long, and we used our […]

We spent four nights at the Elks lodge in Florence, but by yesterday, I was ready for a change of scenery. So it was time to move on. We pulled out of the Elks lodge, and drove a mile or two to the city marina and campground to use their dump station. I’m sure glad […]

If there is one thing a fulltime RVer needs to pack before they hit the road, it’s flexibility. Because you never know when a breakdown, bad weather, or some other unexpected event can change your plans at the last minute. Yesterday was a good example. We pulled out of our site at the Brookings Elks […]

Even though Spring has barely sprung, many of the RVers we know are already on the road, starting their summer travel adventures. Some have been sitting still all winter long in one snowbird roost or another from Florida, to Texas, to Arizona and southern California, and have a bad case of hitch itch. Others have […]

Yesterday was a gray and gloomy day in the desert. Heavy clouds and a chilly wind reminded us that while we may be in Arizona, it is still February. During the morning we did some banking, mailed out a stack of orders that had come in last week while we were busy with our rally, […]
