A Schedule (Of Sorts)

Miss Terry and I spent too many years of our lives on a schedule, both before we became fulltime RVers, and then for most of our 17+ years as working RVers. It seemed like we were always on our way to some rally or speaking gig or something. In the last few years we have […]

That’s what I accomplished yesterday. Absolutely nothing worth talking about. All I did was take up space and use up oxygen. I started the day by doing my mile on the treadmill, then answered some emails and deleted half a dozen forwards without opening them. I’ll never understand why people continue to send me stuff […]

Note: At least two or three times a month I hear from readers who are new to RVing and want to know how membership campgrounds work. Here is a blog post from a while back that covers the topic. The first thing we should do is understand the basic differences between a discount camping club […]

Even More Q&A

Except for putting the front page photo in place and then printing it out to be proofed, which I will do this morning, the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is pretty much done. And since that’s about all I’ve been doing lately and I don’t have anything else to write about today, I thought […]

You Must Plan Ahead

Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

┬áIn today’s blog I thought I would answer a few questions that I seem to get on a regular basis. But before I do, let me say that my answers are what work for us. What works for you may be entirely different. The first question is, how do we access Internet on the road, […]

For years I have had a reputation for bringing bad weather with me everywhere I go. A community could be in a year-long drought, but about the time I show up they get torrential rains. Folks can be planting their gardens on a sunny spring day when I pull into a campground, and the next […]

Warming Up

We were scheduled to leave the Whalers Rest Thousand Trails near Newport, Oregon today, but by Sunday evening I had had all I could take of the cold, the wet, and the dreariness and told Miss Terry to get ready to hit the road Monday morning instead. And wouldn’t you know it, after days of […]

Loving Long Beach

I’m real close to wrapping up my next book and Miss Terry is almost finished her latest weaving project. So yesterday we put them both on the back burner and went kite flying instead. Hey, when you have wind, why waste it, right? The Long Beach Peninsula has a beautiful 28-mile long beach that is […]

Highs And Lows

Yesterday was a day of highs and lows, with time spent with friends old and new, some panic, some frustration, but ending on a high note. The day started with a call from Jim Harper, telling me that a package I had ordered from Amazon had been delivered. Since we can’t get mail or packages […]
