The wind was averaging 40 – 45 miles per hour yesterday here in the White Mountains of Arizona, and at midday two gusts were recorded at 60 miles per hour. We’re parked next to my daughter’s house and the back half of the Winnebago is sheltered by the building but we’re still feeling the effects. […]

There’s not much new to report here. It rained hard and the wind blew all night Wednesday night, and yesterday I spent over ten hours working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So I thought I’d share a story from a previous edition of the paper, when we visited President Truman’s hideaway from […]

Since we came back from the Keys, we haven’t done much exploring this winter, so we decided we needed a play day yesterday. We left the campground and drove about 30 miles west to Crystal River, one of our favorite places on the Gulf Coast. Along the way, we stopped in the little town of […]

Really, I can’t. I wish I could, but even I can’t write fiction as crazy as some of the things I see and hear. If I didn’t have Miss Terry here to occasionally pinch me so I know I’m not dreaming, I wouldn’t believe some of it myself. I was involved in an online discussion […]

Would somebody please light a fire under my butt? I need to get a lot of writing done, and yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get anything accomplished. I think I got off to a wrong start for the day by getting into a rather prolonged e-mail exchange with a gentleman from England who is […]

I love the odd, quirky things we discover in our travels along America’s highways and byways, and a lot of them find their way into the blog, the Gypsy Journal, or my books. And we never seem to run out of new opportunities to find things to share with our readers. A while back, during […]

Today we say a reluctant goodbye to the Florida Keys. We’ve been here just over two weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we didn’t get to do any fishing or boating, the variety of fresh seafood around here is phenomenal and the scenery is spectacular. And if you haven’t been to the […]

Where does the time go? Our two weeks at Sunshine Key RV Resort are over today, and tomorrow we will be leaving the Florida Keys. Even though we didn’t get to do some of the things we had looked forward to, like kayaking or doing some fishing, it has still been one of the most […]

A Trip To The Hospital

Scared you, didn’t I? Yes, we spent some time in the hospital, but don’t worry, we’re fine. It wasn’t a people hospital, it was a turtle hospital. Did you even know there are hospitals just for turtles? Actually, there are several of them around the world, dedicated to saving sea turtles. But the original one […]

One of the greatest things about the fulltime RV lifestyle is the opportunity to do things that most people never will. And wow, the things we have done! One of the things we have really enjoyed doing is getting to know and interact with animals that we never would have seen back in our little […]
