A Wasted Day

Yesterday was a totally wasted day. The phone rang about 9 A.M. and it was the manager of Patio Gardens, the mobile home park where we always stay when visiting Miss Terry’s parents in East Mesa. The park has half a dozen RV sites and we have stayed in the same site the last three […]

I Lied

A few days ago, I outlined the tentative schedule for our trip west, and most of the driving days were around 250 miles or less. I said that would set the pace for the trip. Slow and easy. I lied. We we were awake by 7:30 yesterday morning (what’s up with that?), and it was […]

The Thin Blue Line

On our first visit to Titusville, three years ago, we heard about the American Police Hall Of Fame & Museum, and added a visit to it to our bucket list. We decided yesterday that it was about time we crossed that one off, because no matter how many neat places we visit, or how many […]

Beach Bums

Yesterday I took a break from writing, and we spent the day being beach bums. After all, as the old saying goes, "When In Florida, do what the Floridians do." Yeah, I know that’s wrong, real Florida residents are all at the local buffet getting the Early Bird Senior Special! I think only tourists actually […]

Well, it’s about over. Today is the last day of our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally, and after coffee and donuts this morning, and a last round of hugs and goodbyes, most of the attendees will be leaving the Mercer County Fairgrounds here in Celina. That is, they will if they can get out of the […]

Just Hanging Out

Right now, we’re just hanging out here in Traverse City, waiting for Miss Terry’s doctor appointment on Friday, visiting with my cousin Terry and his family, and their neighbors Ed and Mary Jo, who have become close friends of ours over the years. It’s a good time to sleep in late, catch up on our […]

Today is Miss Terry’s birthday, so before I do anything else, I want to wish her a very, very happy birthday. I love you very much, my darling. Thank you for sharing your life with me. We started yesterday off with a visit to the Tillamook Air Museum, a former World War II airship base, […]

Hurry Up And Wait

Yesterday was a very frustrating day for us. One of those “hurry up and wait” kind of days. Before we visit an area, I do a lot of research on places to visit to gather stories for the Gypsy Journal, and contact them ahead of time to try to obtain passes to come in and […]

Breaking The Cycle

Yesterday I managed to break the nasty cycle of getting up way too early in the morning, and I think I may be on the road to recovery. We slept in, then stayed in bed snuggling and having some quiet time together. These are the moments I cherish most between Terry and I. We finally […]

Everybody is different and every RVer is different. That’s why they make so many different types and models of motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, Class B vans and other specialty vehicles for fulltime RV travel. When it comes to selecting an RV, you have the opportunity to choose a home on wheels that closely […]
