One of the drawbacks to our home here in Edgewater, Florida is that Verizon service really sucks. If we go north or south a mile, we’ve got four bars of 4G. But here at home we get one bar if you’re really, really lucky. Even using my We Boost signal booster doesn’t help. We just […]

Not As Noisy

By yesterday afternoon it was not as noisy around here as it had been for the last few days. There are still a lot of Harleys here, but the RV park is starting to thin out as bikers who were here for Biketoberfest are leaving. But the folks in the office tell me it will […]

I don’t know what it is about food cooked outside on a grill, but it doesn’t matter if it’s hot dogs, hamburgers, or steak, it just all seems to taste better to me. So when the folks from ManGrate contacted me a while back to ask if I would be interested in receiving a pair […]

Singer/songwriter John Lennon said it best – “life happens while you are making other plans.” That’s pretty much what happened with us yesterday. I had planned to spend an hour or so finishing up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal so I could print it out and Terry could proof it. But about the […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I’m in the process of arranging to get some tests here at the VA in Bradenton that my doctor back in Tucson wants me to have done. Yesterday morning started with a phone call from the Traveling Vet coordinator telling me they’ve set me up for the lab work next week, […]

With Christmas coming fast, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. We use, or have used, all of the products ourselves and feel confident in recommending them to you. Midland Two Way Radios – With over a 30 […]

A Good Start

It rained most of Thursday night and it was supposed to rain again all day yesterday. That made it a good day to stay home and work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. As it turned out, although it was cloudy most of the day, the rain stayed away. I worked pretty steadily […]

Yay, the mailing is all finished! Miss Terry worked and worked and worked just like a little dynamo, and yesterday afternoon just before they closed I dropped the last bins of envelopes off at the post office. I’m sure glad we have that behind us! Now we can concentrate on all those rally details we […]

I See A Light!

Well, I didn’t make my goal of getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished yesterday, but I’m close enough that I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Unless that light is from an oncoming train, we’re still in good shape. Today I’ll put the finishing touches on the new issue, […]

South To Tucson

We pulled out of Juniper Ridge RV Resort about 9:30 yesterday morning, drove twelve miles  in to Show Low, and then followed U.S. Highway 60 south 48 miles across the White Mountain Apache Reservation to the Salt River Canyon, a dramatic chasm that folks here in Arizona refer to as the “Other Grand Canyon.”  The […]
