You Must Plan Ahead

Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

Putting In Time

Now that the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is at the printers and the digital edition has been sent out to all of our subscribers, we’re just putting in time waiting for the printed issue to get shipped back to us. But that’s okay, sometimes it’s nice not to have anything on our schedule […]

A Move To Seaside

We were awake at 6 a.m. yesterday because it was moving day. And though it was only a 120 mile trip, we needed to get to our new location, the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve, early to snag a good site. This is a very popular campground and stays busy all summer long. We were on […]

We’re Connected!

As I’ve said many times, there is no more beautiful place on earth than the Oregon coast. But one big drawback for a lot of RVers is the difficulty of getting online in many places. The combination of having few cell towers outside of the larger towns and the rough terrain makes getting a signal […]

They Come, They Go

We have been on the go a lot lately, so when we awoke to a heavy overcast yesterday morning, we decided that it would be a good day to stay at home. I had a lot of writing to do and Terry wanted to plan her next weaving project. Except for the fact that we […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we had one of the shortest moves ever in our sixteen years as fulltime RVers, just 7 1/2 miles. But oh what a difference that short distance made! Since we didn’t have far to go we didn’t get up until 8:30 a.m., which is later than usual for us on a traveling day. Then […]

Goodbye Las Vegas

Yesterday was our last day in Las Vegas, and I can’t say we’re sad to be leaving, if for no other reason than to get out of the heat. And the traffic. And the noise. And the… well, you get it. We ran a few errands yesterday morning, then decided to treat ourselves to a […]

Maybe I’m just weird, but while most young boys my age were lusting over Annette Funicello or Sky King’s niece Penny, I was in love with Morticia Addams, the matriarch of the Addams Family on our old black and white television. Maybe it was her high cheekbones, or the long black hair, or those octopus […]

It rained hard all night Tuesday night, but yesterday morning the clouds parted and we saw that most rare of sights along the Pacific Northwest coast; blue sky! Lots of blue sky. I could get used to that. We spent most of the day checking out some of the shops in town, starting with a […]

Yesterday was a day for bad roads and big waves. Lots of both. We left the Seaside RV Resort about 10:30, stopped for fuel, and then started south on U.S. Highway 101. It was 118 miles to the Elks lodge in Newport, but it was a slow 118 miles. Part of the way was along […]
