Our three weeks at the Long Beach Thousand Trails ended yesterday and we moved about 35 miles south back to Seaside, which is one of our favorite parks in the entire Thousand Trails system. We had one of the nicest sites at Long Beach, where most RV sites are very tight and their weird utility […]

Yes, the scenery is spectacular. No question about it, the seafood is amazing. And we truly have loved flying our kites on the beach. But let’s be honest, the real reason Miss Terry loves coming to the Oregon coast is to go to the Astoria Sunday Market. Every Sunday from early May to early October, […]

We haven’t stepped outside the motorhome for the last two days but we’ve sure been busy! I’ve been studying the calendar and making reservations for our summer travels. We usually don’t like to be tied up to a schedule if we can avoid it, but since we plan to be on the Oregon and Washington […]

And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

Thank you for all of the e-mails and Facebook comments of encouragement for Terry’s dad. He had laparoscopic surgery yesterday to remove his infected gall bladder and the results were good. There was no evidence of this being related to his previous cancer, and Terry talked to him a few hours after surgery and he […]

We have really poor internet here at the Long Beach Thousand Trails. Sometimes we can get on for a few minutes and speeds are reasonable and the next minute you can’t do anything. When I was trying to upload yesterday’s blog, a little after midnight local time, I got knocked offline over and over and […]

Yesterday I swatted mosquitoes with one hand while I unhooked our campground utilities with the other, and we pulled out of the Long Beach Thousand Trails a couple of minutes before 9 a.m. Greg and Jan had left a half hour or so earlier to get fuel, and were pulled over on the shoulder waiting for […]

One of the great things about our job is the really neat things we get to do, all in the name of work. Yesterday, we had a real adventure. We left the Long Beach Thousand Trails and drove 120 miles to the excellent Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, in McMinnville, Oregon. The museum has an […]

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, […]
