We Miss You All, Too

For the last few days I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages from folks that are at the Escapees Escapade RV rally in Essex Junction, Vermont, saying how much they miss us and wish we were there. We miss all of you, too, and we are sorry we couldn’t make it. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets […]

Sunday evening we got an email from our old friend Pat Astbury, telling us she was at Elkhart Campground and had been thinking about us and the times we have crossed paths here. Pat and her husband Scott were a very nice couple that we always enjoyed visiting with, and we were heartbroken when Scott […]

Don’t Blame Me!

I have a reputation for taking bad weather with me wherever I go. People can be enjoying balmy sunshine for weeks on end, and the day after I arrive it starts to snow or they get a record rainfall. At our Gypsy Journal rally in Yuma, Arizona years ago, they got their whole year’s quota […]

Terry and I have been as busy as bees the last few days, and we’ve gotten a lot accomplished, but we still have more to do. I’ve been working hard on my new Big Lake mystery novel, cranking out an average of 4000 words a day. I’m over two thirds done now and I’m looking […]

Watching The Weather

It’s a fact of life that wherever you do your RVing you are occasionally going to have to deal with bad weather. We have been in monsoons in the Arizona desert that can fill dry riverbeds with raging floodwaters in a matter of seconds, more than once we have had tornadoes touch down within a […]

Really? That’s Why?

I’ll admit I’m just an average guy, maybe even a little below average in most respects, and I guess I don’t see the “big picture.” But I’m always amazed at the things people find to worry about. I received two emails from people yesterday saying they were canceling their summer travel plans because of Great […]

Miss Terry wanted me to thank everybody for all of your wonderful birthday wishes in the blog, on Facebook, in e-mails, and even in telephone calls yesterday. You all made her feel very special. We started Terry’s birthday by staying in bed and snuggling yesterday morning. Unless we have to be on the road or […]

A Lot Accomplished

It rained hard here at Elkhart Campground early Tuesday morning, the sound of the rain pounding on the roof of our motorhome waking us up. But by 10 AM or so it had stopped and we had cloudy skies overhead. After talking a little bit about scuba diving when she visited us the other day, […]

A Short, Easy Move

When we arrived at Elkhart Campground on Saturday afternoon, owner Gita Patel had told us they had a big rally coming in so she was going to park us on one full hookup 50 amp site until Monday (yesterday), and then we would have to move to another site that was currently occupied, where we […]

For the second day in a row we were up at 7 AM yesterday. What the heck is that all about? We need to nip this in the bud right now! But we had a lot of miles to cover and we wanted to get on the road. We pulled out of Diamond Caverns RV […]
