Yesterday was another busy day for all of us here at my daughter’s house in Taylor, Arizona, but we had a lot of fun. While I reviewed two more chapters of the audiobook version of Crazy Days in Big Lake, Terry and Tiffany went to a craft fair nearby, and then ran some errands. When […]

It’s time to move on, and we are leaving the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve today. Except for the often flakey Verizon internet service, this is one of our favorite campgrounds, and we love the Verde Valley region. But we’re ready for some new scenery. However, we’ll be making a trip to the shop on […]

The Wind Is Back

One thing you can always count on in northern Arizona is the wind, and it’s blowing again today. The weather forecast says we can expect winds in the 25 – 30 mile per hour range, with gusts over 40 at times. I’m glad we’re going to be hunkered down in our home on wheels here […]

And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

A Windy Trip

Yesterday was a windy day and we would have been very happy to sit still at the Boulder City Elks lodge but the RV sites were all booked, and today the wind was supposed to be even worse so we decided to hit the road and make a run for it. We were aiming for […]

Warm Is Good!

Several blog readers wrote to tell me that driving 445 miles in one day like we did on Tuesday was insane and that we need to slow down. So I took their advice and only drove 435 miles yesterday. We left the Fernley (Nevada) WalMart and drove south on U.S. Highway 95, which was a […]

We didn’t want to announce it until after I finished up with my medical appointments at the VA hospital here in Tucson, just in case there were any unpleasant surprises waiting for me. But it looks like I’ll live another year at least, so we’re going to be at the Escapees Club’s Escapade RV rally […]

Looking Back At 2012

Well, a brand new year starts tomorrow and, as always, I’m excited to see what it holds for us. But first, it’s time for my annual year-end review, looking back at the twelve months behind us. And what a busy year it was! We started the year at the Escapees Sumter Oaks RV Park, near […]

It sure is nice sleeping with the windows open, instead of being all closed up and having the Winnebago’s basement air conditioner running day and night just to be comfortable! And it’s nice to be out of all of the smoke and haze in the Verde Valley. After sleeping in yesterday morning and then spending […]

There was nothing more we would’ve enjoyed than sleeping in yesterday morning, but we were up early so we could start getting ready for our road trip to Show Low, our old hometown. Anytime we have stayed put in one place for a couple of weeks, it takes a little bit of effort to get […]
