If you are a Gypsy Journal subscriber, check your e-mail. Yesterday morning I made the final corrections after Terry proofread the new issue, then I uploaded it to our web server and sent the link out to our subscribers. Today I will be sending out renewal notices to subscribers who are up for renewal. It’s […]

And that’s what it started doing yesterday morning and continued all day and all night. The weather report said we could expect as much as three inches to come down yesterday here in northern Indiana, and the 10 p.m. news last night said some areas in the region got five inches, and it was still […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I posted a link to a story about a man who had a bunch of explosives in his motorhome at an RV park in Arizona, I got four emails from people who wanted to know how they could avoid a situation like that. I have no idea. I’ve found […]

Bang, Boom, Bang!

That’s the soundtrack here in northern Indiana this weekend. Elkhart is the home of the recreational vehicle industry, and while I don’t know how all of that business is doing, I’m pretty sure the people selling fireworks are making a killing. I was out by the dog run here at Elkhart Campground and somebody was […]

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. […]

The Curse Is Broken

We put in a long day of driving yesterday but it was worth it to get out of the gray and gloomy Pacific Northwest. We were beginning to grow moss on our webbed toes. After filling our diesel tank at the Shell station in Sutherlin, at $3.79 a gallon, we got on Interstate 5 and […]

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 […]

Yesterday I got to cross one more thing off my bucket list when we spent the day exploring Cape Cod. Ever since the first time I heard the old Patti Page song about the Cape back when I was a kid, I have wanted to go there. I’m glad I went, because now it’s behind […]

A Rough Trip

We left our site at Patio Gardens in East Mesa at 10 a.m. yesterday morning, expecting an easy five hour trip to Redlands, California. Didn’t Gilligan and his crowd expect a quick trip somewhere once? 🙂 Traffic was moderate and we made good time going though Phoenix on Interstate 10. It was going to be […]

We All Get Hitch Itch

A few days ago, Pennie Walters had a blog post titled Dilemma, in which she lamented the fact that she was feeling hitch itch and longed to be on the move, though she and her husband are enjoying family time with their kids and grandkids. Pennie wrote: “A part of my heart wants to stay […]
