We left the Western Horizons campground in Camp Verde a little after 10 a.m. yesterday morning, driving east on State Route 260. I was a bit apprehensive about traveling this winding two lane road through the mountains in our 40 foot diesel pusher motorhome, but I needn’t have been. The Winnebago handled it with no […]

We got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed off yesterday afternoon, which is always a good feeling. So watch your mailboxes, they’ll be there as soon as all of those heavily armed disgruntled postal workers can get them to you. Now we can concentrate on playing for the next six […]

I’m finally beginning to feel better, and life is getting back to normal around our motorhome. Or at least as […]

Winter has returned to Arizona with a vengeance. All Thursday night, and all day Friday, the wind rocked our motorhome, and the sky was gray and ugly. I’m still not feeling all that great, so it was a good day to stay inside. I did some work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, […]

Overall, the RV lifestyle is pretty safe, in spite of our encounter with the burglar in December. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have to use common sense and exercise caution. Sometimes bad things do happen to good people. Unfortunately, I have another crime story to report, and frankly, this one scares the hell […]
