Those of you who have been following our saga all along may remember the Motorhome From Hell, our first RV, which was a Fleetwood lemon. It literally fell apart driving down the highway and we spent the first eighteen months of our fulltime adventure running from dealer to dealer and even to the factory, trying […]

When the young lady from the Apple store called me Sunday morning she said they expected to get the parts they needed to fix my iMac in on Tuesday morning and get it all put back together, and that she would call me in 48 hours with a status update. I told her that would […]

I got a telephone call yesterday morning from the Apple store to tell me they think they figured out what is wrong with my iMac. The young lady said they replaced the CD/DVD drive again and the cable for it, and then they decided that the circuit board that my RAM plugs into is bad. […]

After being cooped up inside for most of the past week working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, we both had cabin fever and definitely needed a day out yesterday. I had an appointment to take my iMac to the Apple store, but since I knew they were going to want to keep […]

Yesterday Miss Terry and I went back to school. Computer school, that is. And we actually learned quite a bit! Part of the deal when we bought our new iMac computers, was the One To One program, which allows us to get personalized, hands on training at the Apple store, and and yesterday we had […]

In spite of my buddy Greg White’s misgivings about our switch to Mac computers (see his The Gates Of Hell blog post), we are already getting the feel for our new iMacs, and I have to tell you, Terry and I are both very impressed! I used to always think of Mac fans as almost […]

We’ve been Geeked! A couple of days before we left Elkhart Campground, Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour interviewed us for one of their Gabbing With The Geeks podcasts. We talked about the Gypsy Journal and how computer technology makes it possible for us to live and run our business on the road. […]

I spent most of yesterday busily doing nothing, and managed to get most of it done. Don Bingham, a faithful blog reader and newly retired Apple employee, contacted me to congratulate me on my new iPad and to tell me that he wanted to present me with three great apps; Apple Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, […]

As much as we love the fulltime RV lifestyle, we have never gotten over the hurt when it is time to say our goodbyes and move on down the road. We have had a wonderful week visiting with my cousin Beverly here in Tucson, but sadly, it is time to go. There were tears all […]
