Note: This blog is from the November-December 2006 issue of the Gypsy Journal.  Motorcycles. Some people love them and some people hate them.

We are being invaded again. I’m not sure how much more of this we can take. When will it ever end? Our little corner of the world is usually pretty quiet, and even this time year, with all the snowbirds around, it’s not too bad. Sure, you have to wait a little bit longer in […]

We’ve really enjoyed our time here at the Thousand Trails, and will be returning again many times in the future, but right now its time for an Escapees fix. Yesterday […]

In spite of the fact that it was windy and chilly yesterday, we just couldn’t stay inside when we were this close to a beach. We started out by dropping off bundles of sample issues of the Gypsy Journal at some of the local RV parks between Oceano and Pismo Beach. They sure cram a […]

I’ve been traveling America’s highways and byways all of my life, first as a little kid riding in the back seat of my Dad’s old Hudson, as we moved from one place to another or made our annual pilgrimage back to Ohio to visit family. Later on, as a teenager I remember hitchhiking through several […]
