Thinning Out

No, not me. That’s never going to happen. Thin may be in, but in my case, fat’s where it’s at.

But the crowd here at the Cam-Plex in Gillette, Wyoming is starting to thin out as Escapees head off in search of new adventures. Our large extended family likes to keep the wheels rolling, knowing that there are new adventures waiting for them over the next hill and around the next bend in the road.

A lot of nice folks, including Peggy Krepelka, have been coming by to pick up bundles of the Gypsy Journal to drop off at RV parks along their travel routes. This is a huge help to us in introducing new readers to the paper and we very much appreciate it. We still have plenty left if anyone else is still at the Cam-Plex and wants some.

We were a bit surprised at the number of people who came by our vendor booth at Escapade and commented that they had heard we were no longer in business because we have taken a break from holding our own rallies. We were publishing the Gypsy Journal long before we held our first rally and that has not and will not change.

I was also surprised by the fellow who came by our booth and insisted that he knows our boss, a fellow named Art who stays at the same RV park he does in Yuma, Arizona during the winter. According to him, “Art” owns the Gypsy Journal and writes all of the books we publish. I tried to tell him that myself and Terry are the owners and always have been, but that just irritated him. He told me he’s been inside the Gypsy Journal bookstore in Yuma many times and that I was full of sh&%. I guess his mind was made up and all I was doing was trying to confuse him with facts.

Yesterday afternoon Terry and I ran into town to the post office to mail a bunch of orders, and later went to dinner with Greg and Jan at Humphries, a restaurant with a huge menu selection that includes everything from steaks and burgers to crawfish and Rocky Mountain oysters.

Back at the Cam-Plex, we drove around checking out who was still here, dropping off a few bundles of papers, and saying goodbye to folks, including J.C. and Bev Webber, Jim and Linda Sullivan, Bruce and Linda Faye, and Russ and Debbie Davis. We also stopped to say goodbye to Escapade Directors Bob and Molly Pinner, who have done an outstanding job of putting on a first class rally.

This morning Miss Terry and Jan are going to check out the farmer’s market in town, and I have plenty of work to do here at home. Between now and when we leave Monday, we have a lot of catch up to get done to make up for the time we spent in our vendor booth the last few days. The fun never stops!

  1. That was quite the fireworks display you put on at the Escapade in Gillette, Nick!

  2. I think that you should immediately ask for a “raise” from Art. And why isn’t Art pitching in with all the paperwork that Terry does. Too funny of a story. This guy is probably also one of the dimwits that believe everything they read on the internet is true. Safe travels!

  3. Sandy; Worse yet, the clown probably votes…


  4. You should ask “Art” to hire someone else just to be a vendor at Rallies, then you would be able to concentrate fully on writing. Sorry, I forgot, “Art” is the writer. LOL

  5. Maybe you are having a problem with identity theft. Might be worth checking out.

  6. I wonder if Art is rolling around laughing right now since the guy believed him.

  7. J.A., no, the guy was just a blowhard that was trying to impress me with who he knew. I’ve been to Yuma many times and in the last few years and there is no Gypsy Journal bookstore there or anywhere else.

  8. Had to chuckle over the Art story.

  9. Life with Nick & Terry on the road is never boring.
