Of all the groups I thought I’d get in trouble with, I never expected it to be the Veterans of Foreign Wars! I’ve been a member of the VFW for many years, but yesterday I got a certified letter from Robert B. Greene, Quartermaster General of the national headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, rather rudely […]

With our Ohio rally over, we are starting to get back to normal. Or at least whatever the heck passes for normal with us. 🙂 Yesterday morning about 8:30, we heard our friends Mike and Elaine Loscher getting ready to pull out, and we were going to go outside and wish them well, but I […]

How Cool Is That?

The other day I shared a link that my friend Cool Judy Rinehimer sent me on adding avatars to blog comments. Well, now I have another link from Judy, to her brand new CoolRVers On The Road blog. How cool is that? If you’re wondering, Judy got her screen name because she is from the […]

Ever since we finished our Arizona rally, I have been working on our 2011 Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally, which will be September 26-30, at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, in Celina, Ohio. This will be our fourth Eastern Rally, and the third in Celina, a friendly little town that goes out of its way to make […]

I think we missed a turn somewhere along the way south, and instead of Fort Lauderdale, we ended up at the South Pole! I mean really, 33 degree overnight lows just 30 miles from Miami? Really? Isn’t that just a little bit ridiculous? Uh huh, global warming, sure. Would somebody get that damned penguin off […]

After reading in the blog about the frustrations I was having trying to do research at the Family History Library, Roger Marble sent me some website links to articles on getting the most out of a visit to the Family History Library. I spent a couple of hours Sunday reading those articles, and then getting […]

Many people have asked me how I come up with something new to write about every day in the blog. Usually it’s no problem; I write about our travels when we’re on the move, and about the RV lifestyle in general when we’re stationary for  awhile. And sometimes I stumble across something totally unexpected I […]

Last year I posted a blog about a visit that the Tin Can Tourists paid to the RV Hall of Fame Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, and included several photos of the vintage and homebuilt RVs the club members own. One of my favorites was this beautiful  cedar sided fifth wheel, named Wayzalot. The unique RV […]

Who Wants Lunch?

As RVers, we all find ourselves in strange towns, wondering where the good places to eat are located. One good resource for us is Road Food, both the book and the website. We have discovered some real delights there, from the Brick Pit Barbecue in Mobile, Alabama, to Don’s Drive-In in Traverse City, Michigan, which […]
