Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there in RV blog land! What would we be without our mothers? Well, motherless, I guess. This year marks 25 years since my own dear mother passed away and I miss her every day. Do your mom and yourself both a favor and be sure to spend […]

We made our deadline easily yesterday, uploading the new issue of the Gypsy Journal to our printer’s web server about 4:30 PM. Then we waited for their prepress department to e-mail and let us know they had received it. That message came in about 6 PM, and we breathed a huge sigh of relief. They […]

As so often seems to happen here in western Massachusetts, the rain that was forecast for yesterday never showed up. Just a heavy gray sky that hung low all day long. But that was okay, we had plenty of things to do here at home to keep us busy. I finished all of the corrections […]

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 […]

We must have been really tired Saturday night, because sometime Sunday morning Miss Terry got up and turned on the basement air conditioner because it was getting warm inside the motorhome, and then came back to bed. I was vaguely aware of it and snuggled up against her, and the next thing I knew she […]

Even though it’s five months away, and that may seem like a long time, it really isn’t when it comes to planning an RV rally. I’ve been busy working on preliminary details for our Eastern Gypsy Journal rally in Celina, Ohio September 3–7. We are hoping to make this one of our best rallies ever. […]

Today the madness starts. My blogs for the next few days may be shorter than usual, because we’ll be getting up early and working late. When all of the seminars are over for the day, the door prizes are passed out, and the buildings swept out and locked up for the night, we still have […]

Well, I was hoping to be able tell you that my new book, Big Lake Lynching, was available on Amazon’s Kindle bookstore today, but I ran into a formatting problem that I kept trying to resolve until past midnight before I finally gave up in frustration. I’ll tackle it again today, and hopefully be successful. […]

Baby, it’s cold outside! Yesterday started with more wind and rain, and it never got over about 50 degrees. The rain and wind stopped sometime in the morning, but the cold never let up all day long. And the overnight low was just 33 degrees! I’m ready to head south right now! Terry and I […]

Yesterday was the first day of our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally, and, repeating the same pattern, it rained steadily all of Sunday night and most of yesterday morning. By the time the rain finally stopped falling, we had received two inches, on top of all of the rain we got in the days before. Mike […]
