We were up and out the door by 7:30 a.m. yesterday, headed for Benny’s Auto Repair to get the front end of our Ford Explorer worked on. Not for the first time, we both said a little prayer of thanks for not having to be part of the working world commuting to a job every […]

Guess what we did yesterday morning? Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! 🙂 We woke up a little after 9 a.m., said “I love you”and rolled over and went right back to sleep! It’s been so long since we could sleep in that it was a real treat, and we really needed it. […]

By the time you read this, we will be sawing logs. For the last week, we’ve been getting up way too early and getting very little sleep. So we have a lot of ZZZZs to catch up on. Tom and Barbara Westerfield’s motorhome is parked in front of our Winnebago, and Greg and Jan White […]

We drove north 11 miles on U.S. Highway 27 to State Route 50, then took it west through Clermont, Groveland, and Masconte. Traffic was light, and […]

Yesterday we packed up the Explorer with bundles of the Gypsy Journal and loaded our hard shell kayaks on top, loaded our bicycles onto a rack on the back of our Winnebago, and we’re ready to roll! Several people wanted to know if, and how, we were going to be able to carry everything that […]

We were in no hurry yesterday, and that was a good thing. It was cold in Gila Bend overnight, and I was too lazy to get up and turn on the furnace, so instead I shivered half the night. Finally, about 7 a.m., I got up for a bathroom trip, and when I came back […]

We left Bowling Green State University Friday morning, and though I had been worried that we might get stuck in the field where we were parked, we got out just fine. We stopped for fuel, then drove north about ten miles on Interstate 75, skirted the west edge of Toledo on Interstate 475, then picked […]
