America really is a land of contrasts, and probably no more so than in the American West. That fact was brought home to us yesterday in our drive from Williams, Arizona to Bakersfield, California. We left Williams, at almost 7,000 feet, about 9:30 in the morning, and before long we had begun to drop down […]

We have been sitting still way too long, and Terry and I are both itching to get back on the road and see some new places and new faces. Yesterday I finished putting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal together, and once I got the hang of InDesign, our new page layout software, it […]

As much as we love the fulltime RV lifestyle, we have never gotten over the hurt when it is time to say our goodbyes and move on down the road. We have had a wonderful week visiting with my cousin Beverly here in Tucson, but sadly, it is time to go. There were tears all […]

As RVers, we all find ourselves in strange towns, wondering where the good places to eat are located. One good resource for us is Road Food, both the book and the website. We have discovered some real delights there, from the Brick Pit Barbecue in Mobile, Alabama, to Don’s Drive-In in Traverse City, Michigan, which […]

We had originally planned to stay in Kingman, Arizona until Monday, visiting my old friend Mike Howard. But a combination of Mike not feeling very well, terrible cell phone and internet service, and a scheduling mix up changed our plans. We had been in contact with the marketing folks at the Grand Canyon Railway in […]

 In spite of very slow internet service, Kingman, Arizona has a couple of things going for it that make the city well worth a visit, especially if you enjoy history as much as we do. The Mohave Museum of History and Arts has many interesting displays on the area, from Native Americans to gold prospectors, […]

In terms of technology, Kingman, Arizona is stuck in the Stone Age. They should call this place Bedrock and elect Fred Flintstone mayor. I wouldn’t be surprised if the cops here carried big clubs instead of pistols, and answered nuisance calls for dinosaurs running at large. We have been in truck stops in far west […]

Yesterday I realized that we were having a déjà vu experience, wondering if we would get out of Las Vegas today or not. Exactly five months ago we were in Indiana at Elkhart Campground with Greg and Jan White, watching the weather and wondering if the high winds there would die down so we could […]

Yesterday Terry and I, along with Greg and Jan White, drove about 30 miles down to Boulder City, Nevada to stop at Bee’s Mail Service, which has handled our business mail forwarding ever since we hit the road. A new owner, Jean Wilson, bought the company a while back, and we wanted to stop and […]

Is there any greater treasure than the people you love in this life, and those who love you? Yesterday Terry and I spent the day visiting with two very special people, who have helped enrich our lives in so many ways that I could not begin to count them all. We met Tim and Ann […]
