Yesterday was clear and windy here in Tuscaloosa, and my son Travis was eager to get out to the park and try out my Prism Snapshot 1.9 speed foil kite. And I was eager to have him fly it. The wind was perfect for flying the Snapshot, with gusts to about 20 miles per hour. […]

If the weatherman is to be believed, yesterday was the last nice day we’re supposed to have here on the Oregon coast for a while. It’s supposed to start raining today and not stop until sometime the middle of next week. Terry and I decided we had better take advantage of the blue sky while […]

We spent yesterday exploring Cannon Beach, an upscale beach community located just a few miles south of Seaside. The town’s name came about because of a cannon that washed ashore nearby in 1846 from the wreck of the U.S. Navy schooner Shark.

A few days ago Gypsy Journal subscriber John Landry e-mailed me to say that he and his wife Karen are at their lot in an RV resort in the Ilwaco area, and offered to drive down to Seaside and let me fly some of his Prism kites. We decided that yesterday was the day. We […]

Though we just arrived Tuesday, based upon what we’ve seen so far, the Seaside Leisure Time/Thousand Trails preserve could quickly become our favorite in the system. The park is clean, the staff is friendly, the RV sites are roomy, and we have very good 3G and 4G Verizon service. And the campground is close to […]

Miss Terry left me home alone for two days while she went to a weaving seminar across the river in Astoria, Oregon so she decided to reward me with a couple of hours of fun yesterday. Unfortunately, keeping it up proved difficult and I was sore and worn out by the time we finally gave […]

Thanks to everyone who left comments or e-mailed me about our problems with Google  AdSense in yesterday’s blog. For whatever reason, about mid-morning the ads returned and eventually I got an e-mail from Google thanking me for correcting the issues that led to getting suspended. No problem, I don’t know what you think was wrong […]
