It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]

And A Pier Too!

I think all fulltime RVers occasionally visit a place and think, “Hmmm… if we ever hang up the keys…” In our 15+ years on the road, Terry and I have found three such places; the Rockport-Port Aransas, Texas area; Titusville, Florida; and now St. Augustine. We’re nowhere close to that point in our lives yet, […]

After reading my year end blog the other day, I got an e-mail from a very nice man who said he and his wife would love to see some of the places we have visited, but that their fulltiming is limited to summers in the Midwest and Florida in the wintertime because their adult kids […]

We’re Getting There

Well, none of my friends or relatives called to tell me they had won the big Powerball drawing and wanted to split the money with me, so I spent yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, you heard that before. That’s pretty much all we’ve been doing this week. […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, to make the 90 minute drive south to Mystic Seaport, Connecticut. This was one place I have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember, and I’m so happy we finally got there. If you haven’t been to Mystic Seaport, it is a […]

As I wrote a while back, our plans for 2012 have already been changed a couple of times, due to needing to get repairs done to our coach and scheduling conflicts with my appointments at the Tucson VA hospital. So we scrapped our planned trip to the Keys for this year, and we may stop […]

Several of our good friends, including Dennis and Carol Hill, Don and Sharon Del Rosario, Larry and Marilyn Forbes, and Luke and Cool Judy Rinehimer, are all traveling in Alaska this summer, and we’ve been following their adventures through their blogs. Their photographs are spectacular, the scenery is beautiful, they have seen some neat wildlife, […]

Stuck In An RV Rut

Many fulltime RVers and snowbirds I have known seem to fall into the habit of returning to the same places year after year, often spending their winters in the same RV parks in popular snowbird roost areas like the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, the Foothills area of Yuma, Arizona, or any of the hundreds […]

We thought about making the drive back to Glenwood Springs yesterday, just so we could drive through Glenwood Canyon in the van, but it was very windy for much of the day.  We had such a backlog of paperwork and e-mails to wade through because we have been busy with the wedding the last few […]
