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 a rainy day here at Elkhart Campground. I’m glad we didn’t have anything that we needed to do outdoors, because it was a good day to stay inside. Before the rain started, I dumped our holding tanks. I’m looking forward to getting over to Celina,Ohio, where Kevin from Cruising America RV Service Company […]

Living in an RV means that we always have to to be aware of weight and how much we are hauling around. Yeah, I know, I’m hauling a lot of weight around! But right now, I’m talking about the weight of our motorhome and the things we carry in it. Every RV, be it a […]

I’m not a smart man, but I am smart enough to know that there are a lot of things I cannot do. When I was a teenager, I decided to change the spark plugs on my first car. So I took off all eight plug wires, pulled the old plugs out, carefully gapped the new […]

Okay, now I have officially seen it all. When we arrived at the Giant Center yesterday, everybody going into the RV show had to pass through a security checkpoint, where sheriff’s deputies were searching all purses, bags, backpacks, briefcases, and such. I asked what they were looking for, and the lady deputy told me they […]

Please be careful where you walk, because my butt’s dragging and I don’t want you to step on it! And our Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally doesn’t even officially start until today! Yesterday was the early vendor set-up day, and my friend Mike Loscher and myself were over in the big building a little after 9 […]

A Vicious Cycle

The problem with getting up early in the morning is that, like any bad habit, if you do it too often, you find yourself caught up in the action without even realizing it, or giving it a second thought. When that happens, only strong intervention and a lot of willpower can break the vicious cycle.  […]

Rick Lang from Recreational Vehicle Safety Education Foundation (RVSEF) called me yesterday morning to tell me that he and Joyce plan to be on hand at Elkhart Campground on August 29th to greet anybody arriving early for our Gypsy Gathering Rally so they can weigh their RVs if they want it done. If you have […]

We had snow here in Show Low, Arizona on several days last week, and on Sunday we got two inches of the nasty stuff. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we plan to go down to Tucson for a week or so, and it immediately warmed up to about 70 degrees yesterday! The weather is […]

We had forgotten from our previous visits to Yuma just how bad the local tap water is. Most folks here buy water at “water stations” like this one, which can be found all over town. You bring your plastic jugs, put a quarter or two into a vending machine, and fill them up with filtered […]
