As I said in yesterday’s blog, we weren’t sure if we would leave Saturday or Sunday to begin our trip south, depending on the weather. There were a couple of systems coming through the region that were going to bring some rain, but none of them looked to be very large. It started raining hard […]

100 Miles From Here

Even if we weren’t publishing the Gypsy Journal, Miss Terry and I would still be running around the country visiting all of those little out-of-the-way places, small town museums, and historical sites that we write about. I’ve never understood people who buy an RV, go to a campground, and just sit inside and watch TV […]

We love exploring America’s back roads and small towns and finding overlooked gems that the tourist brochures never cover. In a series of weekly blog posts we will be sharing some of America’s lesser-known small town museums, historic sites, and oddball attractions, on a state-by-state basis. We don’t have room to cover each and every […]

The great thing about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors or the neighborhood, you can leave. Or sometimes just because hitch itch sets in and you want a new view out your windows. We love Elkhart Campground, but after a couple of months there we were ready for a change […]

Where does the time go? Half the year is behind us already and I’m still dating things 2013. And, this our last day in Elkhart. Tomorrow we’re heading to the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails preserve in Batesville, Indiana. We’ve been here over two months and it seems like it’s been just a couple of weeks. […]

Happy birthday America. Yes, we have our problems, and there are a lot of things that need changing, but isn’t it wonderful to live in a country where we can complain about the government out loud and not worry about storm troopers kicking in our door late at night? I’ve been around the world and […]

Yesterday started way too early for us but it was worth it because we had a very long day filled with a lot of fun ahead of us. We left Elkhart Campground about 9 a.m. and didn’t get back until after 8:30 p.m., but boy, did we make some good memories in that time! When […]

We decided it was time for a day trip, so we were up earlier than usual yesterday morning and on the road about 10 a.m., headed west on the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80/90) with Greg and Jan. Our first stop was at the Indiana Welcome Center, but getting there was a bit of a […]

We definitely need new batteries. When we were boondocking Saturday night I ran our Onan generator for three hours. We turned everything off before we went to bed about midnight and the batteries were at 12.4 volts. When we woke up at 7 a.m. they were down to 10.8 volts. These are Interstate batteries that […]
