We love getting off the interstate highways and taking the two-lane roads whenever we can. As I have said many times before, a Denny’s or a chain hotel at an interstate exit in Kansas is no different than one in Michigan or California. But the two-lane roads will take you to the real America. Small […]

Note: This is day six of our trip home to Florida after spending time in Ohio researching a new book project. It was only 125 miles to Jacksonville, where Terry had an appointment at the Mayo Hospital on the 11th. We could have easily driven straight there, checked into a hotel, and been ready for […]

Among the several interests that we share with my son Travis and his wife Geli is that we love exploring back roads and seeking out hidden gems that are all too often overlooked by the rest of the world. While we were visiting them in Alabama recently, they took us to an interesting place not […]

I always tell people that Denny’s in Paducah, Kentucky and Denny’s in Kingman, Arizona are the same. That’s […]

Yesterday morning, after dropping the last of the new issue off at the post office, we drove 110 miles south to Tucson to visit my cousin Beverly McKiddy. My parents and all of my siblings passed away years ago, and except for my two kids and my two granddaughters, the only blood relatives that I have […]

I was hoping that the cold weather here in northern Indiana may have forced the gremlins who inhabit my computer to follow the rest of the RV snowbirds south, but alas, the little buggers are still hanging on. We use a commercial mail service for sending the Gypsy Journal to most of our subscribers, who […]

Yesterday started out windy here in Show Low, Arizona, but by noon it had calmed down quite a bit. My daughter Tiffany and her family stopped by for a visit in the early afternoon, and it’s always a treat to spend time with them. My son-in-law, Jim, crawled under our Ford van to unbolt the […]
