Terry and I love being on beaches, whether they be on the wild Pacific Northwest coast, along the Texas Gulf Coast, or here in Florida. So when our friends John and Kathy Huggins from Living the RV Dream asked us if we wanted to go to Lido Beach in Sarasota to watch the sunset yesterday, […]

Enjoy It While You Can

I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you. I’m going to die. And so are you. And your best friend, and your spouse, and sadly, even your kids. It’s going to happen sooner or later. We can’t avoid it. But we can make the most of whatever time we have left here on earth. […]

When we tell people that we are fulltime RVers, one question they frequently ask us is what is our favorite place in the country. That’s like asking a parent which child is their favorite. We have so many “favorites” that I could never choose just one. One winter Terry and I made our first visit […]

Will We Make It?

It rained all of Sunday night in Seaside and we had showers off and on all day long Monday. I think the warmest it got up to was about 62°. A typical Fall day on the Pacific Northwest coast. We are leaving for Newport this morning where we are scheduled for two weeks at Whalers […]

Our three weeks at the Long Beach Thousand Trails ended yesterday and we moved about 35 miles south back to Seaside, which is one of our favorite parks in the entire Thousand Trails system. We had one of the nicest sites at Long Beach, where most RV sites are very tight and their weird utility […]

The new issue of the Gypsy Journal is almost finished. I’ll print it out today for Terry to proof and get it uploaded to our printer’s web server. It always feels good to get another issue behind us. I have a question for those of you who subscribe to the paper. Do you prefer fewer […]

It’s often said that if RVers don’t like their neighbors, all they have to do is turn the key and leave. We did that Friday night, but it wasn’t because of our neighbors. We were in a 30 amp full hookup site here at the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve, and for the first couple of […]

It seems like the worst of the storms that have hammered the Pacific Northwest coastal region have passed on out of the region, and we’re ready to do the same thing. We plan to start heading south today. We’re going to take Interstate 5 to Mount Shasta, California, where we’ll pick up State Route 89 […]

Newport Bayfront

We love wandering around the waterfront in Newport, Oregon. If we ever hang up the keys and decide to settle down in the Pacific Northwest, this would be the place. U.S. Highway 101 is the main road through town and the Deco District, where neat old commercial buildings hold fun shops selling books, antiques, and […]

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 […]
