We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]

I See Live People

After days of being cooped up inside trying to escape the blistering heat wave that has blanketed much of the country, for the last two days people here at Elkhart Campground have started coming back out of their RVs, blinking their eyes in the sunlight, and looking like refugees from bomb shelters. For a while […]

How We Choose

Several readers have written to ask why we didn’t visit Colonial Williamsburg during our recent trip to Virginia, suggesting that it would be a good story for the Gypsy Journal. We have also had e-mails from readers in the last couple of weeks wanting to know why we didn’t tour this place or that place […]

I’m beginning to feel like I have my very own personal rain cloud hanging over my head, dumping on me every time I turn around. It rained three out of the seven days we were in the Washington D.C. area, two of those days so hard that we couldn’t go out and sightsee. Now we’re […]

Yesterday we were up and out early, riding the Metro train back into Washington D.C. for more sightseeing. We had a great time, but playing tourist is darned hard work! After two days in a row, we are worn out! We started the day by visiting the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where the nation’s […]

Our plans to play tourist in Washington, D.C. were rained out yesterday. It started raining just after midnight and came down all day long. Not just a drizzle, but a hard, pounding rain that was not fit for man nor beast. So we spent the day in the motorhome at Cherry Hill Park, watching TV, […]

Yesterday was another short driving day for us, just 77 miles! I could get used to this laid back lifestyle! We left Round Top Campground in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania just before 10 a.m. , got on U.S. Highway 15 and followed it south to Frederick, Maryland. U.S. 15 is a nice, divided four lane highway that […]

Terry did a lot of pre-packing the motorhome Wednesday night, so yesterday morning it was a simple job to run in our bedroom and living room slides, pull up our HWH leveling jacks, unhook our utilities, and get ready to hit the road. We pulled out of the Hershey Thousand Trails campground, drove west several […]

The Hershey RV Show finally ended yesterday, and it was the longest week of our lives. We are so glad that it is over! We have worked a lot of RV rallies over the years, but this was our first RV show. I’m pretty sure it will be our last, too. The good news is […]

We got wrapped up in some projects that have delayed our departure for a bit, but with most of the things wrapped up that we wanted to get done before we leave northern Indiana, we hope to be on the road by the weekend. Now we just have to decide where we’re going, and how […]
