I think we are both over the worst of the fatigue from our recent stressful travels and things are starting to get back to normal around here. Hopefully it will stay that way for a while. This time of year you can expect thunderstorms just about every afternoon here on the the Florida coast, so […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish our good friend Al Hesselbart happy birthday. We first met Al way back when we had only been on the road a few months. At that time he was the historian for the RV Museum and we stopped in to visit and do a story on […]

There’s a lot happening in the area this weekend, from a craft fair in Nappanee to an RV show at the RV Museum here in Elkhart, to a gun show in Shipshewana. We didn’t go to any of them. In fact, the only time I went outside yesterday was to dump our holding tanks. But […]

Today is a very special day for us. It’s Miss Terry’s birthday! The world received a very special gift the day she was born, and I am beyond thrilled and humbled that out of all of the men in the world, for some crazy reason she has chosen to spend her life with me. She […]

First of all, I want to thank everybody for your birthday greetings on the blog, by e-mail and on Facebook. You all make me feel very special. And speaking of birthdays and special people, today is our friend Elaine Loscher’s birthday. It’s never polite to ask a lady her age, but I’m pretty sure Elaine […]

It’s been a while since I did a blog about oddball RVs and some folks have asked if I had any new ones to share. As a matter of fact, I do! Here are several that readers have sent me or I’ve found online. We’ll start with a real oldie, an expanding RV from 1934, […]

Thanks to those who sent messages hoping Miss Terry was feeling better. Yes, whatever bug was picking on her passed and she woke up feeling much better yesterday morning. When I checked my morning e-mail I had one from Chris Guld, the better looking and smarter half of Geeks on Tour, suggesting she come by […]

Yesterday morning started out with a phone call from Greg White asking if we wanted to go for a walk around Elkhart Campground with him and Jan. The full loop around the place is almost exactly one half mile and Lord knows I need the exercise. But it was only 10 a.m., which is barely […]

More Of The Same

Most of yesterday was more of the same thing it has been for the last few days, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. I got eleven more pages done, and have sixteen left to go. You’re probably getting tired of hearing the same thing every day, but right now we’re not on […]

No Flood So Far

We got lucky and most of the rain that was predicted for the weekend bypassed Celina, and we’re sure grateful for that. We’ve parked RVs on a soggy fairgrounds before and it’s no fun. We only had 31 RVs come in yesterday, since most of the Early Birds arrived on Friday, with a few more […]
