Last night I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I will upload it to our printer’s web server this morning. This is issue 92, and that’s a lot of travel stories! And there’s still so much that we want to see and do, and tell you about.
Overheard yesterday morning at the campground between a mother and a little boy of about 5 years old:
Mom – Jackson, you come back here!
Mom – Jackson, I said come back here!
Mom – I know you can hear me! Get back here.
Kid – NO!
Mom – Don’t you sass me! I said get back here!
Mom – Jackson, I’m not going to tell you again. Get back here.
Kid – NO!
Mom – Jackson, I’m telling you for the last time!
Mom – Jackson, I’m warning you! I won’t tell you again.
Mom – Jackson, I’m not going to tell you again. Get back here!
Geez, mom, you’ve already taught him that you ARE going to tell him again and again and he doesn’t have to listen. Spank his butt and you might get his attention!
I got an e-mail from a reader asking me if it really is possible for RVers to make enough money to supplement their Social Security. Sure you can, we’ve been making our entire living on the road for fifteen years now. Some good resources for finding ways to do it are John and Kathy Huggins’ excellent So, You Want to be a Workamper?, my own book Work Your Way Across The USA, and Workamper News. You’ll also find a lot of ideas in this article on Mobile Income Sources for Non-Retired RVers from the nice folks at Technomadia.
With the new issue out of the way and a few days to kill before we get it back from the printer, we’re going to try to see some of the local attractions around York and Gettysburg. York is known as the Factory Tour Capital of the World and there are tours locally for everything from the Harley Davidson motorcycle factory to pretzel factories, and one that manufactures violins. We did the Harley Davidson tour several years ago, but we hope to squeeze in some of the others while we’re here.
A lot of people have been asking me when my new book, Big Lake Scandal, will be released. It’s in the final editing stage now and as soon as I get it back and make any last minute corrections I’ll upload it to Amazon and Barnes & Noble for Nook readers. I’m hoping it will be by the end of the month, but there are some things that can’t be rushed if one wants to turn out a quality product. And after all the months it takes to write a book, I feel an obligation to myself and my readers to take the time to do it right and not take any shortcuts along the way.
I’m eager to get this new book out so I can get to work on the next one in the Big Lake series. Actually, I’ve been writing it in my head for a while now and I’m looking forward to getting it down on paper. Or at least into my computer.
