Yesterday was our last full day in Ohio, and what a full day it was! We crammed a lot into just a few hours. Terry and I got up early and went back to the Caesar Creek Flea Market again. This time we only browsed the outdoor vendors, since they had all kinds of interesting […]

As I wrote in Friday’s blog, when we were here in Long Beach a couple of years ago we toured the World Kite Museum with Greg and Jan White and I bought a G-Kites Delta Conyne kite, then stuck it in the closet and forgot all about it until we were at the kite festival […]

Terry is really hooked on the fiber arts, and for a long time now she has been drooling over a website for a place called The Woolery, located in Frankfort, Kentucky. Terry said they have anything and everything that the knitter, hooker, weaver, or spinner could ever want or need. (Get your mind out of […]

A Quiet Day At Home

Yesterday we had a quiet day at home, one of those relaxing days when we didn’t do anything that we didn’t feel like doing. No phone calls, no visitors, just us. We need days like that once in a while, and lately they’ve been hard to come by. I spent most of the day writing, […]

DirecTV Impresses Me

I’ve never been a fan of either Dish Network or DirecTV. I’ve had both services at one time or another, and am currently a Dish customer. As a fulltime RVer, I have had a number of frustrating encounters with the customer service people at both companies.. However, I believe that when a company goes the […]

Yesterday we left the campground a little after noon, to meet our friends Tom and Barb Westerfield for lunch at a Buffalo Wild Wings. We hadn’t seen Tom and Barb since our rally in Yuma in early March, where they were part of our advance crew, and handled a million and one large and small […]

Miss Terry has said that she wants to see if a Sea Eagle inflatable kayak might suit her needs as a replacement for her heavy Manta Ray, but she didn’t want something as big as my PaddleSki 435. Tim Ryerson from Inflatable Boats 4 Less has suggested one of their sporty Fast Track kayaks for […]

Miss Terry was still feeling pretty yucky yesterday, so we stayed home and didn’t do a whole lot of anything. I wrote a couple of articles for the next issue of the Gypsy Journal, answered a few e-mails, and called a subscriber who also wants to tow a Ford Explorer behind his motorhome, and was […]

Yesterday was a long short drive for us. We pulled out of the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve about 11 a.m., me driving the motorhome and Miss Terry, the Explorer. 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 […]

I have to be honest, even though we have belonged to Thousand Trails for several years, I was in no hurry to come to the preserve here in Clermont, Florida. But we’ve been here a week now, and I think it’s fast becoming one of my favorite Thousand Trails/NACO campgrounds. Our site is great, they […]
