We have had a wonderful time visiting Rocky and Berni, here in Muskegon, and as always, the time has gone by way too fast. We have joked, laughed, acted like kids, and forgotten all of the troubles of the world for the last four days. Thanks for always making us feel welcome, Rocky and Berni. It’s been a great mini-vacation!
Unfortunately, we have a lot of work to do in the next few weeks to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal out, and to wrap up a hundred and one details for our upcoming Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally in Celina, Ohio. So we’re back on the road today, headed for Elkhart Campground, our regular base when we’re in this part of the country. It’s only about 140 miles, and I’m hoping for an easy trip. However, the weather report says it’s going to be windy, so I’m hoping that it won’t be too bad.
We always feel like we’re coming home when we pull into the driveway at Elkhart Campground, and over the years, owners Bob and Gita Patel have become a part of our extended family. We have watched their two sons grow up into fine young men as we have grown our businesses. We have a lot of friends in Elkhart we’re looking forward to seeing, and I think if I play my cards right, I can hoodwink my pal Al Hesselbart, from the RV Hall of Fame Museum, into buying me dinner at least once.
If we have any time while we’re in Elkhart, we really need to unload all of our motorhome’s storage bays and do some serious sorting and get rid of a bunch of stuff we’ve been carrying around and don’t use or need. We’ve done this every year since we became fulltime RVers, so you’d think we wouldn’t have anything left to carry any more, but stuff seems to expand to fill the space available. I can’t prove it, but I’m convinced that my buddy Greg White goes to swap meets and yard sales stocking up on junk, and then late at night when I’m asleep, he crams it into my storage bays! Where else could all this crap come from? 🙂
Thanks to everybody who left comments on yesterday’s blog about how they get online. I have a question; my Droid Incredible phone has a setting that says 3G Mobile Hotspot, and I have never used it until yesterday, when I did some experimenting. I discovered that I can use it to turn my phone into a WiFi hotspot, but I’m not sure if there is an extra charge for that, or how it is billed. Can any of you Verizon Wireless users out there clue me in?
In the last few days, several people who have downloaded and read my mystery novel Big Lake from Amazon’s Kindle bookstore have left very nice comments on Facebook, and I really appreciate it. Besides being very flattering, something my ego is always happy to receive, whenever that happens, I see a little spurt in sales, which my bank account appreciates. 🙂
Thought For The Day – A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.
