Done And Ready To Go

I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal until about 1:30 Monday morning, and then made the mistake of knocking off and taking a shower and going right to bed. I should have known better; if I don’t give myself some time to relax when I’m done for the day my body may […]

A Foggy Day On I-10

It rained again Saturday night and it was still raining when we got up at 7:30 yesterday morning. Why must I keep getting up so early if it’s too ugly to do anything? What’s up with that? Fortunately, by 9 a.m. the rain had stopped and all we had was a heavy overcast. We took […]

A Four Hour Day

Yesterday was an easy traveling day for us, just four hours. We hardly had time to get our Cummins diesel engine warmed up! As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I wasn’t sure where we were headed, either to the Lake Minden NACO campground a little north of Sacramento, or the Russian River NACO, near Cloverdale. […]

Mornings Are Overrated

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we made the second shortest move we ever have in all of our years as fulltime RVers, just nine miles. Our shortest move was seven miles, between campgrounds down in Benson, Arizona years ago, back when we had just started building our MCI bus conversion. Terry had stashed most of the things we put […]

Saying Goodbye To Yuma

As promised, the road service fellow that Coach-Net sent out Sunday night called at 7:30 yesterday morning to tell me that he had located a replacement tire for our motorhome, and that he would be there within a half hour. He arrived promptly at 8, and mounted the new tire and the outside dual on […]

When I was a younger person, I thought I would never get old, and didn’t want to. What fun could that be? Now that I have almost six decades under my belt, I realize just how dumb I was back then. This is absolutely the best time of my life. When I look at the […]

Sometimes it can be very frustrating trying to plan an RV rally. There are a thousand details that have to be handled behind the scenes, like pre-ordering enough donuts for everybody every morning, but not ordering too many and having them go to waste. Or making sure we have enough two-way radios for the parking […]

Down To The Wire

We’re getting down to the wire on our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally, and everybody on our advance team is busy, busy, busy! The rally starts a week from today, and we still have a lot to get done. Miss Terry and Barbara Westerfield have been locked to their computer keyboards, making lists, setting up registration […]

Settled In At Yuma

When the alarm went off at 7:15 yesterday morning, we both wanted to throw it out the window and roll over for another 400 winks. I mean, what the heck good is a measly 40 winks going to do anybody? But alas, it was one of those days when we had to act like grownups […]
