It’s probably been forty years since I drank any alcohol, which is a good thing. I mean, imagine all of this with no inhibitions! The world is probably a better place because I prefer Pepsi, even if my waistline isn’t. But Miss Terry does enjoy a glass of wine occasionally, and a couple of years […]

Before I came into her life and carried her away, kicking and screaming, to spend our days wandering America’s highways and byways, Terry lived in a cozy little cabin in Arizona’s White Mountains that was filled with antiques. She had everything from curved glass-fronted Hoosier cabinets to an impressive collection of oil lamps. But these […]

Sharks In Seaside

Seaside, Oregon is a nice little town on the Oregon Coast, and the emphasis here is on the beach and the ocean. But when Miss Terry said something about wanting a shark, I started thinking that maybe it was time to take her inland. I saw Jaws and I don’t want anything to do with […]

Yesterday afternoon we were downtown in Seaside and saw a couple of guys with skateboards who were in their late 20s and being a bit obnoxious. I was tempted to tell them to grow up, but then I remembered that I’m 62 and I spend my time flying kites, so I kept my mouth shut. […]

We haven’t stepped outside the motorhome for the last two days but we’ve sure been busy! I’ve been studying the calendar and making reservations for our summer travels. We usually don’t like to be tied up to a schedule if we can avoid it, but since we plan to be on the Oregon and Washington […]

New and wannabe fulltimers sometimes worry that they will be all alone out here on the road, surrounded by strangers. And then they are surprised at how many friends they quickly make and how often they run into them over and over again all over the country. We’ve had several friends visit us since we’ve […]

A few days ago Gypsy Journal subscriber John Landry e-mailed me to say that he and his wife Karen are at their lot in an RV resort in the Ilwaco area, and offered to drive down to Seaside and let me fly some of his Prism kites. We decided that yesterday was the day. We […]

Though we just arrived Tuesday, based upon what we’ve seen so far, the Seaside Leisure Time/Thousand Trails preserve could quickly become our favorite in the system. The park is clean, the staff is friendly, the RV sites are roomy, and we have very good 3G and 4G Verizon service. And the campground is close to […]

We’re In Heaven!

Well, actually we’re at the Leisure Time/Thousand Trails resort in Seaside, Oregon. But with roomy full hookup RV sites, a nice indoor pool, and fast Verizon 3G and 4G internet service, it sure feels like heaven! We hoped to get an earlier start yesterday morning, but the couple who were parked behind us came over […]

When I saw the above on a sign in front of a business yesterday, I knew exactly how they feel. It’s been cold, windy and rainy for days now, as it has been for much of our summer, and we’re getting very tired of the gloom. Our original plan was to leave the Long Beach […]
