Much of the last week has been spent getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to go to press. I finished it yesterday afternoon and then Terry spent several hours proofing it before I uploaded it to our printer’s web server. It always feels good to get another issue behind us. This is […]

Break Out The Kayaks!

I had heard that parts of Gettysburg Farm RV Resort were subject to flooding when they get a lot of rain, but since we are parked on a gravel site with a gravel road, I wasn’t too worried about it. We’ve had a few showers while we’ve been here, but nothing to get excited about. […]

The Madness Begins

RVs are pulling into Elkhart Campground one after another as weekend warriors arrive to kick off the season. For the next three months or so every campground and RV park in the country will be full of campers, kids, barking dogs and smoky campfires. You gotta love summer, right? Hey, it’s all part of the […]

The Mighty Bungee

Except for a Swiss Army knife, can you think of anything more versatile than the simple ball bungee? As RVers, what would we do without them? They’re like elastic duct tape and no recreational vehicle should be without a ready supply on hand. A Ball bungee is a short piece of rubber bungee cord looped […]

We left Charles and Chris Yust’s lot in the Yuma Foothills about 11 a.m. yesterday, stopped for fuel and then headed north on U.S. Highway 95. It was a great day for an RV trip, about 85o with no wind and lots of blue sky overhead. There is a VFW post a little bit north […]

Most of the folks from the dog show have left the Pima County Fairgrounds and it’s a lot quieter here. The last two mornings the only thing that woke me up was my own snoring. Miss Terry says she doesn’t know which is worse. But the dogs have been replaced by new critters. Last night […]

Never Forget

I don’t think any of us need reminding that today is the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our country. It was a defining day in our history and I think all of us can remember where we were and what we were doing when we realized what was happening. It’s important that […]

A Change Of Scenery

We were up at 7 a.m. yesterday morning and ready to roll a little after 9 even though we planned a relatively short driving day. I hope this early morning stuff doesn’t become a habit, because I already have enough bad habits to deal with. The 53 miles of U.S, Highway 12 between Kamiah and […]

Get The Picture

A question I get asked often is what kind of digital camera does Terry use for all of the great pictures she takes for the Gypsy Journal and my blog. Several people have said that they want to take pictures that turn out as well as hers. We have several different cameras, actually. I’m not […]

Last Day At Orlando

Today is probably our last day at the Orlando Thousand Trails for this winter. We leave here tomorrow to go back to Three Flags in Wildwood for two weeks. I say “probably for this winter” because we actually have another two weeks reserved here at Orlando after our Wildwood stay, but if all of Terry’s […]
