Something I learned early in my Army days was that you can plan an operation down to the last detail and spend weeks talking strategy, but it can all go out the window the minute you put boots on the ground. That’s why you should always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to […]

Wednesday the water was out in the C loop here at the Hershey Thousand Trails because somebody ran over a water bib and broke it. When we woke up yesterday morning the power was out in the whole park and they had also shut off the water until the power came back on. So basically, […]

It’s 695 miles from the Beacon, New York Elks Lodge to Elkhart Campground, and we wanted to get there as soon as possible, because by Monday I have to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal to the printer. So we left yesterday morning, planning to get about 400 of those miles behind us […]

We left Sturbridge about 10 AM and got on Interstate 84 westbound, crossing into Connecticut in just a couple of minutes. Strong storms were predicted for later in the afternoon and we wanted to get to Beacon, New York before they hit. Traffic was not too bad as we skirted the south side of Hartford, […]

Yesterday was a busy day for us. Terry had a dentist appointment at 11 AM, and then we drove over to LensCrafters so she could talk to the doctor about a problem with her new contact lenses. A few days ago she went for an eye exam, and came out wearing bifocal contacts. At first […]

Yesterday morning we were up early and getting ready to hit the road. We had a short drive, less than 50 miles back to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground, but since the Thousand Trails is so busy this time of year, and there are so many people wanting to get into the few 50 amp […]

Today was a good first day for our winter Florida stay. We slept in, rolled over and snuggled up close, then fell asleep again for another hour or so. We finally had to get up, because it was getting too warm inside our motorhome, and we needed to open some windows and let the fresh […]

After our marathon drive to Elkhart, we slept soundly in spite of the fact that Duncan RV Repair is located just a block or so from a major railroad switching yard, and day and night you can hear the screeching of steel wheels on steel rails, and the banging and clanking of railroad cars being shuffled […]
