I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I think I’m going to survive this cold that has knocked me off my feet. I’ve had colds before, but this one has been the granddaddy of them all. Terry is a couple of days ahead of me in her recovery, and […]

On To Hondo

When the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning I wanted nothing more than to roll over and go back to sleep. But it was a travel day so I drug myself out of bed, sniveling all the way. Terry seemed to be over her cold for the most part, but mine was still in […]

Sneeze, Cough, Sniffle

That’s been the theme song at our motorhome for the last few days. Between Miss Terry, myself, and our friend Jim, I think we’ve sent first quarter sales for the folks that make Kleenex, Alka Seltzer Cold Formula, and Mucinex skyrocketing to new levels. Yesterday morning I actually discovered a spot in the web between […]

Longtime blog readers know that I have not been a big fan of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas RV mecca that is home to thousands of Winter Texans. But I have to admit, our stay here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission has me rethinking my previous position on the place. We came […]

Texas Two Lane Roads

We love traveling the two lane roads that wander through America’s countryside and small towns. They usually take a little longer than crossing the country at high speed on the super slab, but it’s worth the time. I always tell people that Denny’s in Paducah, Kentucky and Denny’s in Kingman, Arizona are the same. That’s […]

Yesterday was a beautiful day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. Blue sky, a light breeze, and about 70 degrees. It would have been a good day for kite flying, but I was focused on getting as much done as possible on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal because […]

Small Town Texas

I needed a break from working on the paper so we took the afternoon off to check out Columbus, the small town just a couple of miles from the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve where we are staying. This is a typical small Texas town, but one with a lot of history to it. Columbus […]

We Did It Again

Yesterday was another dreary, rainy day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. We didn’t want to leave our cozy bed and had to force ourselves to get up sometime after 10 a.m. So much for our commitment to getting up earlier in the day. When we finally did get in […]

We’re In Texas!

There’s an old saying that goes “the sun has rose, the sun has set, and we ain’t out of Texas yet.” But what the heck, we’re not in a big hurry to leave the Lone Star state so, it doesn’t matter. When we left West Monroe, Louisiana Tuesday morning we had an easy run west […]

In The Wind

Yesterday was clear and windy here in Tuscaloosa, and my son Travis was eager to get out to the park and try out my Prism Snapshot 1.9 speed foil kite. And I was eager to have him fly it. The wind was perfect for flying the Snapshot, with gusts to about 20 miles per hour. […]
