I wanted to give you an update on the couple I told you about in yesterday’s blog, who were beginning to feel anxious about boondocking in Quartzsite, Arizona after a neighbor filled their heads with all kinds of nonsense about how dangerous it was. They wrote to me yesterday evening to say message received, and […]

The End Of An Era

Yesterday we moved the Winnebago to the storage area here at our little manufactured home community, and Terry and I both found ourselves getting misty eyed. Even though we’ve been living in our house for almost three weeks now, I think storing the motorhome finally made it hit home to us that after over 17 […]

Well, the motorhome is finally empty and everything has been moved into the house. Now if we could just figure out where to put all of it! At this point we have some stuff put away, but a lot more is stacked up here and there, kind of like airplanes in a holding pattern at […]

Terry and I both want to thank everybody for all of your well wishes following our announcement yesterday that we have purchased a place to be our winter base and someday retirement home here in Florida. You really have made us feel very special and very loved. A lot of you had questions, and I […]

The title of this blog is also the title of my favorite Jimmy Buffett song, which he wrote after his first visit to Key West, Florida. If you have never listened to it before, check it out at this YouTube link. Miss Terry and I can relate to that song today. As most of you […]

Our month at the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange, Florida is up and it’s time to move on down the road. Or up the road, actually. And probably just in time, since it’s been getting warmer every week. Today we will have an easy run of just 60 miles to the Elks lodge […]

We once met a couple at the Escapees Rainbows End RV Park in Livingston, Texas who told us that after a year of fulltiming they were going home because they had seen it all and done it all and there was nothing left to do. They said they had been from border to border and […]

I guess spring brings out dreams of travel and adventure because I’m hearing from a lot of people who are RV shopping for the first time, and also from a lot of folks who have RVs and are thinking about replacing them. When people talk about changing RVs it almost always because they want something […]

I’m almost done with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and as soon as Miss Terry gives me her recipe column I’ll be ready to print it out for her to proofread. Then I’ll ship it off to our printer sometime this evening and they’ll check it out one more time. I’m always glad […]

We left Charles and Chris Yust’s lot in the Yuma Foothills about 11 a.m. yesterday, stopped for fuel and then headed north on U.S. Highway 95. It was a great day for an RV trip, about 85o with no wind and lots of blue sky overhead. There is a VFW post a little bit north […]
