I got an email yesterday from a couple who are currently stuck in Wisconsin dealing with a family medical issue that may keep them there most of the winter. They said that while their RV is supposed to be an “all seasons” rig, they are finding it is far from adequate in the situation they […]

Enough Already!

Okay, I’ve tried to be nice about it and just snivel and whine, but that hasn’t helped. The warmest it got was 50° yesterday, and it got down into the 20s last night here in Apache Junction. Just like it did the night before, and just like it’s supposed to do tonight. If I see […]

Terry Was Impressed

We were up at 7:30 yesterday morning because we had an appointment to get our Winnebago’s two-piece windshield replaced. The shop is just off U.S. Highway 101 in Warrenton, about ten miles from the campground, and on the way there I pulled into the same weigh station we stopped at three weeks ago to weigh […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after working a lot of hours this past week finishing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I planned to spoil myself and sleep in, and that’s just what I did! We got to bed about 3 a.m. and woke up about 10:30. I guess I needed it; I’m […]

The View Is The Same

In a thread on the Escapees forum, a woman shares her excitement about her recent motorhome purchase, and acknowledges that while the 1986 Toyota Conquest is small (21 feet), it fits her needs for now. I posted a reply to her thread, and told her that the neat thing about her little RV is that […]

Much Ado About Nothing

It was darned cold when we woke up at 7 a.m. yesterday morning, and when I poked a foot out from under the covers, all I really wanted to do was pull it back in, roll over and spoon Miss Terry, and sleep for another two or three hours! But alas, duty called. Once I […]

Stupor Bowl Sunday

Am I the only man in America who didn’t know who was playing in the Stupor Bowl yesterday, and didn’t care? I have never been into organized sports, and try as I might (okay, I never really have tried), I just can’t get enthused about them. There really is more to life than watching a […]

I ate so much yesterday that I may not go near a refrigerator for at least a week! Well, okay, but at least not for another hour or two! Miss Terry was up early, making cookies and carrot cake to take to her sister Lisa’s house for a family dinner to celebrate her parents’ birthdays. […]

We were up by 7 a.m. yesterday, which is way too early for us, but we had a lot of miles to travel. We pulled out of Pony Express RV Resort in North Salt Lake, took Interstate 215 around the west side of Salt Lake City to where it joined Interstate 15 on the south […]

Keep your raincoats buttoned up, you perverts! That’s not what I’m talking about! Do you flash your headlights to let truckers and other RVs know it is safe to pull back into the lane ahead of you after they pass? I’m curious. If you do (and we all should), how many of them blink their […]
