One thing you can count on in Arizona during late winter through summer is wind. Lots and lots of wind. And yesterday was another very windy day here in Tucson. I was sure glad we were not out on the highway. But we did see a few RVs leaving Voyager RV Resort and new ones […]

Did anybody else NOT give a damn that yesterday was Pi Day? I got e-mails and Facebook posts about Pi Day all day long. A million idiots all jazzed up because it won’t happen again in our lifetime. So what? Last Monday won’t happen again either. We had hoped to spend the week after Escapade […]

Yesterday was vendor set up day for the Escapade so we were up early (for us). Many of the vendors sell lots of different products and have elaborate booths but we’re pretty simple by comparison. A few books, a few bundles of sample issues of the Gypsy Journal, our sign, and we’re good to go. […]

Yesterday was another day of seeing lots of familiar faces here at the Tampa RV Super Show. We walked our legs off, saw some interesting stuff, and met up with a lot of old friends. The crowds inside and outside the vendor buildings were large and at times it was impossible to move until the […]

Another year of exploring this great land of ours has come and gone. We’re slowing down a bit; this year we traveled 6,316 miles as opposed to 8,500 miles the year before. And that was way down from the 15,000+ miles a year we used to do when we were teaching at Life on Wheels […]

We were here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve a few yeas ago when we bought our Ford Explorer. It came with every option available the year it was built, and driving back to the campground I was playing with all the buttons and gizmos to see what they did. After I while I realized […]

It was so cold here on Florida’s west coast yesterday that I saw a teenager with his pants pulled all the way up! I think our high was only about 62, and yes, I know that compared to the rest of the country, that’s a heat wave. But I’m not in the rest of the […]

Except for a quick run to Annville to mail out an order and stop at a roadside produce stand and a very nice meat market next to it called Laudermilch’s Meats, we were busy at home all day yesterday. After dealing with the usual morning load of e-mail, I parked myself at my desk and […]

Yesterday morning started out with a phone call from Greg White asking if we wanted to go for a walk around Elkhart Campground with him and Jan. The full loop around the place is almost exactly one half mile and Lord knows I need the exercise. But it was only 10 a.m., which is barely […]
