We were awake before 6 a.m. yesterday morning to be ready for the tech at Rocky Mountain Cummins to take our motorhome into the garage at 7:30. Since we are not morning people, we were not thrilled about that. And it’s been our experience at different repair shops over the years that even though they […]

A Whole Lot Of Ugly

Some people love the desert and some don’t. I spent many years living in it, but I much prefer being on a beach, or at least someplace with trees and grass. But yesterday it was all desert for us. Just a whole lot of ugly. We left the Las Vegas Thousand Trails a little before […]

Warning, this blog contains content that may not be comfortable for the squeamish. We have been dealing with a nasty problem, and while we still don’t know what caused it, after a lot of trial and error, and even more frustration, we seem to have solved it. At least for now. We are very careful […]

Time Flies

Four years ago today we returned to our motorhome, which was parked at an RV repair shop, and came face to face with an armed burglar. It was a terrifying experience and one that taught us that complacency can get you killed in a hurry. I wrote about the incident in a blog post titled […]

Moving Right Along

One of the things many new RVers seem to be baffled by is the care and treatment of their black tank and I’m not sure why. It’s really a relatively simple process but people make it difficult. There are only four things to remember, and if you remember them and don’t listen to all of […]

A Trip To The Shop

It’s time to move on, and we are leaving the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve today. Except for the often flakey Verizon internet service, this is one of our favorite campgrounds, and we love the Verde Valley region. But we’re ready for some new scenery. However, we’ll be making a trip to the shop on […]

And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

Terry and I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Wherever you are this special day, I hope you are surrounded with love, joy, and happiness. Terry and I are at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve in Clermont, Florida, far from our relatives, but we’ll still be spending it with family; part of […]

Back On The Road

Well, it took longer than expected, and we made a very nice donation to the economy of Redlands, California before we got out of town, but we’re back on the road. The first thing yesterday morning the guys at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center were hard at work on our Winnebago again, pushing to […]

It’s so darned cold out that even I’m ticked off at me for coming to Florida! At noon yesterday it was 41 degrees in Ocala, but it was 54 in Bismarck, North Dakota, and 51 in Kansas City, Kansas!  Would somebody please explain that to me? 🙁 Yesterday was a triple whammy for me. I […]
