Yesterday started off with a visit from my friend TW Robinson , author of the excellent books The Retirement, and How To Self-Publish Your Book For Free And Not Get Conned. Besides being a great guy and fun to hang out with, TW is a retired Tuscaloosa police officer with a lot of stories to […]

It’s Here!

Our big moving weekend is here, and I have no idea how it arrived so fast. We still have so much to do, but we’ve made a lot of progress. We finally finished getting the cargo trailer loaded yesterday, except for a few little spaces that we can poke some lightweight stuff into. As I […]

Slowly But Surely

We are making progress on our upcoming move, getting things packed and loaded into the cargo trailer slowly but surely. As I said in the blog the other day, it’s like the only way you can eat an elephant, one bite at a time. I’m amazed at how much we are able to cram into […]

Yesterday we closed on our new house and acreage in Alabama as we start a new chapter in our lives. As I wrote a few days ago in my blog post Making A Big Change, we bought a house out in the country on almost eight acres, a half hour west of Tuscaloosa. It is […]

We were up early again yesterday morning, threw the suitcases and a couple of other things in the back seat of the truck, hooked up the cargo trailer, and were on the road by 9:00 A.M. I was very pleased with how the truck handled the trailer going down the highway. As I said in […]

The fun at the Gypsy Journal rally never stops, from sunup to long past sundown. If you come to one of these events and are bored, it’s your own fault. You must be hiding in your RV, or something! The first seminar I gave yesterday was called Laugh Your Way Across The USA, which is […]

Please watch where you step today, the butts of our entire rally parking crew are dragging, and I don’t want you to step on them! 🙂 Compared to the Early Bird parking day last year, yesterday was a breeze. Yes, everybody worked very hard, but the weather cooperated, we had a good plan of attack, […]
