I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, Terry proofread it, and I uploaded it to our printer’s web server late last night. Now it’s time to play. Somebody please ring the bell for recess!
While Terry was proofing the new issue, our neighbor Albert Casaus came by to renew his subscription and we chatted for a while. We first met him a couple of years ago at the Long Beach Thousand Trails preserve in Washington and it was nice to reconnect.
That’s one of the best things about the fulltime RV lifestyle – after you’ve been out here a year or two it seems like wherever you go you run into people you’re met someplace else in your travels. We have had totally unplanned meetings with other fulltimers we know at RV parks, at rest areas, fuel islands, and even bumped in to them at flea markets and restaurants.
Now that the paper is done, we need to get out and recover from the cabin fever that has set in since we’ve been working this past week. We want to run down to Mesa to see Terry’s parents and also over to Show Low to touch base with my daughter and her family. And if the weather cooperates, I may even try to find some grass and fly my kite.
The printer will go over the paper again and once they tell us it looks okay on their end I’ll be sending out the link to the new digital issue sometime toward the end of the week. I’ve also been working on a couple of new promotions I’ll be sharing with you soon.
We’re supposed to leave here the 24th, and from here we’ll go to my daughter’s for a few days so we can be there for granddaughter Hailey’s birthday party. We won’t stay long in the White Mountains because we’re getting to that time of year when snow is a real possibility up there, and that’s something I try to avoid at all costs.
From there we’ll stop in for a visit with Terry’s parents for a few days before we go on to Tucson, where we’ll spend some time visiting my cousin Beverly and getting some medical appointments behind us. We’ll be popping into and out of Tucson a few times, because I have appointments at the VA hospital in November, December, and again in January. In the meantime we’ll bounce around southern Arizona and over to southern California visiting friends and family, and maybe even finding a few new places to write about in the next issue of the paper. I’ve also got a new Big Lake book to write. Two actually. Life is never dull at the Russell motorhome.
