When Terry and I first got interested in kayaks many years ago we bought two Native Watercraft sit-on-tops. They were great boats and we really liked them, but after we traded in the Ford van we had then on the Explorer, we had to put them on the roof of the SUV. That became a […]

Remember that drought I told you Florida was going through? Remember how I told you that even though the rains have started to come, they always go north and south of us, leaving us in a dry window? Well, you can forget all of that. Yesterday was the time to start cleaning the motorhome and […]

We decided it was time for another road trip yesterday, so we left the Daytona Beach RV Resort about 10 AM, ran a couple of errands, and then drove down to New Smyrna Beach. This is fast becoming one of our favorite towns in Florida. We spent a while browsing in some shops, drove across […]

The weatherman was predicting thunderstorms for yesterday afternoon, with some of them possibly being severe, so we planned to stay close to home all day. As it turned out, we had some rain for about ten or fifteen minutes mid-day, but then it cleared up and we had blue sky for most of the afternoon. […]

Yesterday we took a day trip to Tarpon Springs, the Greek sponge fishing town made famous in the 1953 Robert Wagner movie Beneath The 12-Mile Reef. We first visited this interesting town on a trip to Florida several years ago and loved the waterfront area, with its little shops, great restaurants, and friendly people. We […]

No, I’m not talking about baseball, this is something much better. At least it is to me! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, last month I sold 545 copies of my e-book mystery Big Lake, and and 709 e-books all together, and I had set a goal for myself to sell a total of 1,000 […]

Yesterday was the third morning in a row that I was up before 9 a.m. I think I need to have some sort of intervention to break this vicious cycle! 🙁 I answered a bunch of e-mails, logged in a couple of orders for digital Gypsy Journal subscriptions, and then we started getting ready to […]

We got a lot done yesterday, ate well, and had fun in the process. That always makes me feel good. 🙂 We started the morning by getting up at 9:30, and by noon I had answered a dozen e-mails, looked up some information on Corps of Engineers campgrounds in Georgia and Florida for one of […]

Yesterday our pal Al Hesselbart from the RV Hall of Fame Museum took us for a ride into Michigan to show us some great boat launches along the Saint Joseph River. Al is a dedicated bass fisherman and has fished the lakes and rivers of northern Indiana and southern Michigan for years, and I don’t […]
