Thank you to the many blog readers who responded to my story about the phantom power showing on the voltmeters in our Winnebago motorhome, even after I disconnected all the batteries while putting it in storage. Quite a few of you suggested that the small solar panel on the roof might be giving us the […]

After the nice folks at Cummins in Bossier City, Louisiana solved our fuel problems, we left there Wednesday afternoon heading east on Interstate 20. We only drove about 90 miles, stopping at Pavilion RV Park in West Monroe for the night. It’s a nice park, with easy access on and off the highway. We stayed […]

Ever since I started doing seminars at RV rallies, one thing that I have preached over and over is that both partners in an RV must know how to hookup and drive the rig, even if only one of them is the primary driver. As I always say, you don’t have to know how to […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. It’s a big transition […]

A few days ago I listed Terry’s Ashford rigid heddle loom on the local Craig’s List, because since she got her Baby Wolf loom she didn’t use the Ashford any longer. It was an excellent starter loom and she could have used it for a long time but the Baby Wolf will do anything it […]

Thanks to everybody who made blog comments, sent e-mails, and posted on Facebook about Terry’s dad. His Valley Fever tests came back negative, and he is having a needle biopsy on the nodule in his lung early Tuesday morning. We plan to be there for that. He’s strong and has been in overall good health, […]

A few days ago I wrote a blog about some of the strange, even silly, questions people ask us. A couple of people were skeptical and asked if I made those up, while quite a few more wrote to share some of the strange questions and requests they have gotten over the years. The one […]

Even though Spring has barely sprung, many of the RVers we know are already on the road, starting their summer travel adventures. Some have been sitting still all winter long in one snowbird roost or another from Florida, to Texas, to Arizona and southern California, and have a bad case of hitch itch. Others have […]

The Arizona Good Sam rally is going on at the Yuma Fairgrounds this week, and yesterday I spent some time visiting with the rally staff and the vendors who are here for the rally. Most of them will be staying over for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally next week, and since a couple were vendors […]

When I was a younger person, I thought I would never get old, and didn’t want to. What fun could that be? Now that I have almost six decades under my belt, I realize just how dumb I was back then. This is absolutely the best time of my life. When I look at the […]
