I guess because they don’t have enough to worry about with things like wars and natural disasters and politics, people are involved in a big debate going on online about the future availability of campgrounds and how hard it is becoming to find a last-minute campsite in many areas. Some blame long-term seasonal campers, others […]

We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night. […]

We’ve seen a lot of roadside attractions from coast to coast in our time on the road, some that were really good and some that made us yawn and say, “Uh huh, can we go now?” But yesterday we saw what Terry and I both agree is the best one ever. Roadside America, located just […]

I was back at it again all day yesterday, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal pretty much nonstop all day long, and into the evening. I got a lot accomplished and by the time I gave up for the day I had 15 of 36 pages done. That feels good. About 5 […]

Our Early Bird arrival day is tomorrow, but we’ve already been busy parking dozens of RVs here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. They started rolling in yesterday morning and it was nonstop all day long. I don’t know exactly how many rigs came in but I would estimate somewhere around 50. Most […]

Given some of our experiences with weekend campers, we kind of expected to be kept awake Friday night with a lot of noise from all the kids at Pope Haven Campground in Randolph, New York. But we were wrong. By about 10:30 PM everything was pretty quiet and we had a very good night’s sleep. […]

Friday The 13th

I’m not normally a superstitious man. Black cats crossing my path don’t bother me, I don’t carry a four-leaf clover or a rabbit’s foot for good luck, and I’d much rather walk under a ladder than climb the darned thing. But all that being said, yesterday was definitely Friday the 13th. We left Elkhart Campground […]

Most of yesterday was spent getting ready for our trip to Massachusetts, which begins today. When your house has wheels under it and you’ve been sitting still for a few weeks, things have to be put away, secured so they don’t move around while in transit, and tidied up. Okay, let’s be honest, most of […]

Baby, it’s cold outside! How cold is it! Damn cold! Last night the temperature got down to 34 degrees, and today’s high is only predicted to be 49! But that’s not the worst of it, tonight it’s supposed to go all the way down to 25! I highly disapprove! 🙁 Yesterday morning we were up […]

Yesterday was a road trip day. We left Smith’s Campground & Cabins near Loudonville, Ohio and drove some 45 miles along a series of two lane roads through the rolling hillsides and some nice small towns, until we came to Dover, home of the fabulous Warther Museum. I have been hearing about this place for […]
