Would somebody please light a fire under my butt? I need to get a lot of writing done, and yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get anything accomplished. I think I got off to a wrong start for the day by getting into a rather prolonged e-mail exchange with a gentleman from England who is […]

Today we say a reluctant goodbye to the Florida Keys. We’ve been here just over two weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we didn’t get to do any fishing or boating, the variety of fresh seafood around here is phenomenal and the scenery is spectacular. And if you haven’t been to the […]

And I’m The Bad Guy?

A few days ago I reported in a blog about Thousand Trails that several members had reported that their reservations have been shortened from three weeks to two with no notice from the company. These were on reservations that they had booked online and received confirmations on, some more than three months ago. That left […]

I spent yesterday practicing being lazy, and I think I’m getting pretty good at it. I did not do one bit of work all day long. I could get used to this life. Well, at least until the money runs out and I have to go back to work. But I think if we really […]

Yesterday was a nice laid-back day here at the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve. Terry’s sister Lisa and her husband Jim came by for a delicious breakfast of crepes that Terry made, and then we sat outside in lawn chairs visiting and enjoying a near-perfect Spring day. A little after 1 PM Jim and Lisa […]

The wind blew hard all Friday night, but by yesterday morning it had died down to just a stiff breeze. We left the Palm Springs Thousand Trails Preserve a little after 9 a.m. and took Interstate 10 east a little over 100 miles to the Arizona State line. There wasn’t much traffic and it was […]

Yesterday was the first day of our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally, and, repeating the same pattern, it rained steadily all of Sunday night and most of yesterday morning. By the time the rain finally stopped falling, we had received two inches, on top of all of the rain we got in the days before. Mike […]

Yesterday was a short travel day for us. In fact, one of the shortest we’ve had in a very long time. We enjoyed our time at The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Florida, and I took a photo of our Winnebago in Peter and Connie Bradish”s lot before I started unhooking our campground utilities in preparation […]

We’re leaving The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Florida today and are going to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, which is actually in Clermont. We owe a big thank you to our friends Peter and Connie Bradish for hosting us on their lot here for the last few days. We really appreciate your hospitality, dear friends. […]

It started raining late Wednesday night, and it rained hard most of the night here in Titusville. By morning the rain was really coming down, and NASA postponed the space shuttle launch again. Now they are aiming for this afternoon. The many delays may be frustrating for those who are waiting to see the space […]
