Yesterday was the last full day of the 2011 Western Gypsy Gathering rally, and it was another busy one, filled with fun, laughs, and some excitement we could have done without. Miss Terry was up and out the door before me, to get the morning coffee and doughnuts ready. Just as I was getting out […]

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 […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Apache Junction, and it was a busy one, as many of our days have been lately, and as they will be for the next several weeks. Terry’s sister Lisa dropped by during the morning for a last visit with us. We probably won’t see Lisa again until next […]

One Rally At A Time

At least a half dozen different people have written to ask when and where our next Eastern rally will be, and when they can register for it. We won’t have anything "official" on our website about the Eastern rally until the Western rally is over. We tried that once, and had too many people trying […]

Sunday was another ugly weather day, here in Apache Junction, and across most of northern Arizona. The wind had eased up a lot, but it was cold and gray, and rained off and on all morning. Sometime in the afternoon the clouds started to break up and we were seeing blue sky, but it was […]

Winter Returns

After having to get up early all week while we were getting our TV cabinets upgraded at RV Renovators, I can’t begin to tell you how nice it was to sleep in yesterday morning. Especially given the weather! We had enjoyed temperatures in the low 80s for a while, but now winter has returned to […]

It’s Done!

I have to be honest, when we got up yesterday morning, I wasn’t entirely sure that the guys at RV Renovators would meet our deadline of getting finished by the end of the day. But Billy had told us not to worry, and true to his word, at 4:45 he backed our motorhome out of […]

While we think the folks here at RV Renovators are a great bunch, and they have treated us very well, I’ll sure be glad to tell them goodbye! This is our fourth day in the shop, and I’d really like to look out my window and see the Superstition Mountains, instead of mechanics and RV […]

In yesterday’s blog, I promised you more pictures of our TV cabinet upgrade project. But as I learned when we were converting our MCI bus years ago, there are times in many projects where, while there is a lot of progress being made, not very much of it is visible. Yesterday was such a day. […]

We find that a day out running around or playing, balanced out by a day at home, seems to work best, when we can do it. After our day of kayaking Tuesday, we spent Wednesday here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve. In mid-morning, our friends Dave and Jean Damon came by to say hello, […]
