What’s Bugging Me

I’m bugged. Really bugged. Back in early October, when we were in Pennsylvania at the Hershey Thousand Trails preserve, we were invaded by stinkbugs. They were everywhere, and it was impossible to keep them out of our motorhome. They seemed to hide in every nook and cranny of our Winnebago, and just about the time […]

We only have a couple of days here in Gettysburg, and we had planned to spend yesterday playing tourist. There is so much to see and do here that we could never cover it all, but we had hoped to at least get to the new National Parks Visitor Center. But things didn’t go exactly […]

Yesterday we spent part of the day unloading all of the stuff from our van that we used at the Hershey RV Show, and repacking it into the storage bays of our motorhome. It was a hot, humid day, and by the time we got done, we were both wringing wet. Back inside our Winnebago, […]

Valley Forge

Yesterday we drove 75 miles to Valley Forge National Historical Park, where the Continental Army, under George Washington, spent the hard winter of 1777-1778 during the American Revolution. Being history nuts, this was a real treat for us, and we enjoyed immersing ourselves in this shrine to American liberty. We also learned a lot that […]

A Lazy Day

Yesterday was a much needed lazy day for us, after our week at the RV show. We slept in, then didn’t do much of anything all day long. Terry did a couple of loads of laundry, we checked e-mail, cruised the internet, watched TV, and I napped for a while on the couch.  We needed […]

The Hershey RV Show finally ended yesterday, and it was the longest week of our lives. We are so glad that it is over! We have worked a lot of RV rallies over the years, but this was our first RV show. I’m pretty sure it will be our last, too. The good news is […]

The Last Day

Today is the last day of the Hershey RV Show, and it couldn’t end soon enough for us. We are worn out physically and mentally, and just want to go to bed and sleep for about 48 hours straight. All week long the show promoters and other vendors have been telling us “Just wait until […]

Okay, now I have officially seen it all. When we arrived at the Giant Center yesterday, everybody going into the RV show had to pass through a security checkpoint, where sheriff’s deputies were searching all purses, bags, backpacks, briefcases, and such. I asked what they were looking for, and the lady deputy told me they […]

Okay, maybe I didn’t shave my legs, but I was still up before 7 a.m., and I even brushed my teeth! That has to count for something, doesn’t it? Why was I up at such an ungodly hour, you may ask? Because we’re working a vendor booth at the Hershey RV Show this week – […]

We’re tired, and we’ve just gotten started! Yesterday was the first public day of the Hershey RV Show, and we spent eleven hours in our booth, greeting people, passing out sample copies of the Gypsy Journal, and selling a few subscriptions, books, and CDs. The main vendor area is on the floor of the Giant […]
