Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Terry’s mother happy birthday. I’m not sure my mother-in-law always knows how to take me, but she has let her daughter hang out with me for the last 19 years so I guess I must be doing something right. Happy birthday, Bess! We love you. […]

Note: This story first appeared in the November-December, 2012 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Recognizing that a waterway across the seven mile wide isthmus of Cape Cod, connecting Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay, would be a great trade boon between the Plimoth Colony, local Indian villages, and the Dutch merchants sailing from New York, […]

When we called Lowe’s last week to report that the oven light in Terry’s new Samsung stove had gone out the second time she used it, they said they would send a repairman out on Friday. But Thursday afternoon he called to say that there was a scheduling conflict and he wouldn’t be here until […]

I wish I had something exciting to tell you about in today’s blog – a road trip, a fishing excursion in our boat, dipping shrimp from our dock, or that I won the lottery. But alas, I would be lying. The last couple days have been pretty much the same thing. I have been getting […]

After I mentioned camping opportunities at Elks and Moose lodges and VFW posts in yesterday’s blog, More Snowbird Options, I got quite a few emails from people asking more about joining the Elks and Moose, as well as the VFW. Here is a link to a blog post I wrote a while back about Camping […]

I said in yesterday’s blog that I planned on being lazy on Sunday, and that I wanted to get some writing done, but that was about it. As it turned out, I accomplished nothing. Nothing at all. Since we had been up earlier than what is usual for us just about every day last week, […]

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is the many wonderful friends we have made over the years as we have roamed America’s highways and back roads. And reconnecting with them is always a lot of fun. Yesterday afternoon we got to do just that when we met our friends Stu and Donna […]

That’s A New One!

We’ve seen a lot of subscribers come and go in our sixteen years of publishing the Gypsy Journal, and we’ve seen a lot of fulltimers hit the road and later hang up the keys. Some try it for a few months and decide it’s not for them, others travel for a few years and settle […]

Hurry Up And Wait

The shipment of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal got to the freight dock in Astoria either Monday or Tuesday, but we never received a call, so I called yesterday to see where it was. After tracking it down on her computer, the woman at the shipping company’s office in Portland said it was […]
