Before I do anything else today, I want to wish our good friend Al Hesselbart happy birthday. We first met Al way back when we had only been on the road a few months. At that time he was the historian for the RV Museum and we stopped in to visit and do a story on […]

I got an e-mail from somebody yesterday that brought to mind something my friend Al Hesselbart, the historian for the RV Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, has mentioned before. The lady who contacted me said that they were considering a Thousand Trails campground membership, and were concerned because their Prevost bus conversion was an all electric […]

In a blog I wrote exactly one month ago today titled Lots To See And Do, I reported that while coming across Interstate 86 in New York the road was so rough that one of the hubcaps had bounced off the dual wheels on our motorhome. I said that when we got back to Elkhart […]

We’re getting down to the wire on our time here at Elkhart Campground. We have a reservation at the Gateway to Cape Cod Outdoor World Resort in Rochester, Massachusetts beginning on the 16th. It’s a little over 900 miles from here to there, so we will probably leave on Friday to start making our way […]

We were up and at it early again yesterday, so the Spartan Chassis tech could get started on our motorhome a little after 7 AM. Now I have to tell you something, you can call me a whiner and a sniffler and a crybaby all you want, but this getting up so early in the […]

A Lot Accomplished

One good thing about being stuck in a small town where we don‘t know anybody over the weekend is that I got a lot accomplished on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal.  By the time I finally pushed myself away from my desk last night, I had over 21 pages done, out of 36. […]

We took advantage of not having anything to do and slept in yesterday morning. It seems like it’s been a while since we could do that. There were four or five RVs here with us in the camping area at Spartan on Friday night, folks who had finished up with their work but decided to […]

It’s Only Money

Can you think of anything worse than getting up at 6 AM? I can. How about getting up at 6 AM so you can spend a lot of money on RV repairs? We were told a tech would be coming by shortly after 7 AM yesterday to move our motorhome into a bay here at […]

If a guy has to work, I guess I’ve got about the best gig going that anybody could hope for. I get to travel around the country to interesting places that other people only visit on vacation, I can stay as long as I want to, they usually let me in for free, and then […]

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope this year brings you much love, much adventure, much joy, good health, and prosperity. For us, the year has just started, and we’ve already shaken up the Jello that every fulltimer writes their plans in. We currently have a two week reservation at the Orlando Thousand Trails, starting on […]
