I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here, usually because they are ones I receive more than once from different people. Q. Now that you and Terry have bought a […]

Running In The Rain

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we weren’t sure if we would leave Saturday or Sunday to begin our trip south, depending on the weather. There were a couple of systems coming through the region that were going to bring some rain, but none of them looked to be very large. It started raining hard […]

Bang, Boom, Bang!

That’s the soundtrack here in northern Indiana this weekend. Elkhart is the home of the recreational vehicle industry, and while I don’t know how all of that business is doing, I’m pretty sure the people selling fireworks are making a killing. I was out by the dog run here at Elkhart Campground and somebody was […]

Yesterday was another rainy day but we didn’t mind because we didn’t have plans to do anything anyway. I was busy writing and got another 5,200 words done in my new book. I’m just a few words shy of 56,000 total and I’m hoping to wrap this one up and have it ready to go […]

The new issue of the Gypsy Journal is almost finished. I’ll print it out today for Terry to proof and get it uploaded to our printer’s web server. It always feels good to get another issue behind us. I have a question for those of you who subscribe to the paper. Do you prefer fewer […]

Goodbye Las Vegas

Yesterday was our last day in Las Vegas, and I can’t say we’re sad to be leaving, if for no other reason than to get out of the heat. And the traffic. And the noise. And the… well, you get it. We ran a few errands yesterday morning, then decided to treat ourselves to a […]

Still At It

I’ve been working hard on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I’m still at it, but getting closer to wrapping it up every day. When I knocked off to write the blog at 10 last night I had eight pages to go. Since the temperature is supposed to be in the triple digits […]

Family Time

Yesterday was a family day. Which means, of course, that it was a very good day. How could it not be? I was surrounded by beautiful women, had a great dinner, and there was cake for dessert! We started the day fighting with the terribly slow Verizon internet signal, which seems to get worse every […]

Another year of exploring this great land of ours has come and gone. We’re slowing down a bit; this year we traveled 6,316 miles as opposed to 8,500 miles the year before. And that was way down from the 15,000+ miles a year we used to do when we were teaching at Life on Wheels […]

We thought about staying at North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina longer because we really liked the campground and I would have liked to have toured the Museum of the Albemarle in nearby Elizabeth City. But they are having their annual seafood festival this week and we didn’t have advance reservations, so it was […]
