I say I’m “working” when I put a new issue of the Gypsy Journal together, but the truth is, all I’m really doing is sitting on my butt at my desk. That’s not really “work.” But now the real work begins. Yesterday afternoon we drove to Lebanon to pick up the new issue at R&L […]

When I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we planned to break up the 450 mile trip from the Wilmington, Ohio Thousand Trails to the Hershey, Pennsylvania Thousand Trails into two days and to stop somewhere along the way overnight, I really meant it.

Being history nuts, this was a real treat for us, and we enjoyed immersing ourselves in this shrine to American liberty. We also learned a lot that […]
