I will never forget our first Thanksgiving on the road. We had been stuck in the Phoenix area waiting for RV repairs and when they finally got done we just wanted to be gone. We hit the road and found ourselves in an RV park in Saint David, Arizona that night. The next day we […]

Where Will It End?

If you have been reading this blog or the Gypsy Journal for very long, you probably know I have a reputation for saying what’s on my mind, and I’ve been known to step on toes now and then. You may also know that I have said for a long time that the biggest problem with […]

Life Had Other Plans

Yesterday was a cold, dreary day here on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, and I had hoped to spend it writing while Terry was weaving. But life had other plans for us. Monday evening Terry washed the dinner dishes with no problem, but at bedtime we could not get more than a trickle of water from […]

I’ll Be Switched

As I said the other day, every time an RV goes rolling down the highway it’s subject to earthquake forces as it bounces over potholes and through rough construction zones. So it’s no wonder that things shake loose or break from time to time. A few days ago Terry started a load of laundry and […]

One Problem Fixed

I mentioned the other day that we had a water leak that we could not find and that it was getting worse. A couple of blog readers recommended Morry Bernard, who runs West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair here in Florence and is also in our RV Good Guys guide, so I knew he […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

Not Having Fun

Terry and I spent yesterday not having fun. And that was no fun at all. We’ve been to Las Vegas before and had fun, but Greg and Jan White were with us. Greg likes to drive and I don’t like all the crazy traffic here, so I got to sit back and play passenger. Here […]

Running Our Legs Off

Or our wheels, at least. We’ve been going pretty much non-stop since we got to Tucson, getting all of our annual medical appointments taken care of. Monday was Terry’s turn, and yesterday was mine. We arrived at the VA hospital a little after 9 a.m. and I didn’t have to wait long before they took […]

The Little Dutch Boy

Do you remember the children’s story about a little Dutch boy who saves his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike? I kind of felt like that youngster yesterday. You may remember our black tank blockage last week, and that one suggestion was to drill a small hole in the end of the […]
