Yesterday was a beautiful day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. Blue sky, a light breeze, and about 70 degrees. It would have been a good day for kite flying, but I was focused on getting as much done as possible on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal because […]

Almost There!

I must have been worn out Friday night because I slept right through a brief but loud thunderstorm at the Claremore, Oklahoma Elks Lodge. I’m usually a light sleeper but Terry said I never flinched as she got up and closed the roof vent and came back to bed. Yesterday morning we were up early […]

Terry and I were both humming the tune to John Denver’s ode to the Colorado Rockies yesterday as we drove 110 miles west to Avon, in the heart of the state’s high mountain playground, to visit with her twin sons Casey and Cody and their families. The first views of the snowcapped mountains as you […]

The fun at the Gypsy Journal rally never stops, from sunup to long past sundown. If you come to one of these events and are bored, it’s your own fault. You must be hiding in your RV, or something! The first seminar I gave yesterday was called Laugh Your Way Across The USA, which is […]

Please watch where you step today, the butts of our entire rally parking crew are dragging, and I don’t want you to step on them! 🙂 Compared to the Early Bird parking day last year, yesterday was a breeze. Yes, everybody worked very hard, but the weather cooperated, we had a good plan of attack, […]

No matter what you have ever heard, there is absolutely no energy crisis, there never has been an energy crisis, and there never will be an energy crisis. All we have ever had is a technology crisis, and misdirected focus! If you doubt me, spend an afternoon with two little granddaughters, ages seven and three. […]

We spent most of the day yesterday playing tour guide at the RV Hall of Fame Museum to members of the Heartland Owners Club, who were in the area for their annual rally. It was a lot of fun. Here is a picture of Terry sitting with her new friend, Poker Alice. Poker Alice was […]

Yesterday we were running around in short sleeve shirts, but that didn’t last long! By evening it had turned downright chilly here in Albuquerque, and today’s high is only supposed to be 53 degrees! We spent most of yesterday printing off copies of our various RV guides and making CDs to sell during the rally. […]

For whatever reason, once we were parked at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds Tuesday after driving to Albuquerque from Show Low, Arizona, I just could not get to sleep. I tossed and turned all night long, and I think I managed about two or three hours of sleep at the most. Since we arrived at […]

I have traveled all over the world and seen some marvelous sights in my life, but I don’t think anything compares to a sunset in the Arizona desert. Each one is a masterpiece. I happened to look out the window yesterday evening as the sun was setting here at the Pinal County Fairgrounds in Casa […]
