The latest nonsense making the circuit around campfires and RV internet forums is about gangs of thugs approaching RVers at truck stops while they are getting fuel and luring them to the back of their rigs by claiming somebody hit them and telling them that they have a big dent. When they follow them to […]

We’re In Texas!

There’s an old saying that goes “the sun has rose, the sun has set, and we ain’t out of Texas yet.” But what the heck, we’re not in a big hurry to leave the Lone Star state so, it doesn’t matter. When we left West Monroe, Louisiana Tuesday morning we had an easy run west […]

We pulled out of Bass Lake RV Campground in Dillon, South Carolina at 10 AM yesterday morning and headed south on Interstate 95. It was a nice day, plenty of blue sky, no wind, and traffic was moderate. A good day for traveling in an RV. We stopped at the Flying J in Latta, filled […]

Terry had a restless night, but I slept pretty well at the travel plaza on the Ohio Turnpike and woke up ready to finish our trip to Elkhart Campground. We only had four hours to go, plus the time for a stop at the Flying J just south of Toledo for fuel. This was another […]

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 […]

Tired Before We Start

Our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally doesn’t even start until Sunday, when we start parking our Early Birds, but I’m already worn out. Miss Terry, Tom and Barb Westerfield, and Greg and Jan White have been doing most of the work, so I don’t know why I’m the one who is so tired. Yes, it does […]

Settled In At Yuma

When the alarm went off at 7:15 yesterday morning, we both wanted to throw it out the window and roll over for another 400 winks. I mean, what the heck good is a measly 40 winks going to do anybody? But alas, it was one of those days when we had to act like grownups […]

I’m Finally Warm!

Today is officially the last day I’m waking up early for a long time! We fell into this nasty habit over a week ago, and every morning we have been getting up much too early. As Deputy Barney Fife used to say in the old Andy Griffith television show, “It’s time to nip it! Nip […]

We were up bright and early again yesterday morning, a nasty habit we’re going to have to work hard to break. The inch of snow that had been predicted did not show up, and we were both relieved to see that. But it was still darned cold, and Terry flipped the engine heater on to […]

In spite of noisy trucks coming and going, we slept soundly at the Georgia Welcome Center, and felt refreshed when we woke up yesterday morning. Before we hit the road, we turned on our Onan Quiet Diesel generator, and while Terry brewed herself a pot of coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, checked e-mail, […]
