Watching news coverage of the devastation along the Texas Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey is personal to us. Before we settled on Florida, we looked long and hard at the area around Rockport and Aransas Pass, which was in the predicted direct path of the hurricane’s landfall. They are charming little towns with lots of […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter […]

Sometimes when I’m trying to figure out a problem and get stuck, I find that if I step away from it for a while I come back with a whole new perspective, or the answer may even come to me when I’m doing something else entirely. So it was with the formatting problem I was […]

It was hard to say goodbye to Greg and Jan White yesterday but we had places to go and people to see, so it was time to hit the road. The good news is, it will only be a month or so before we join up with them again at our Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally […]

We have had a wonderful time visiting with Greg and Jan here at Galveston Bay RV Resort. But alas, it’s time to move on! There are still a lot of miles between us and Arizona and we have some stops to make along the way. Yesterday started with lunch at King Food, a wonderful Chinese […]

Every time we come back to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona to visit my daughter Tiffany and her family, poor Terry suffers from terrible allergies. When we lived here it wasn’t as much of a problem, but having been gone for almost eleven years, she has lost  whatever immunity she had to the […]

There is a phenomenon that takes place this time of year that has mystified me ever since we became fulltime RVers over ten years ago, and that is getting income taxes filed. No, I understand the process. What confuses me is why people would leave a place like sunny Arizona and return to cold states […]

Quite a few RVs have left Rainbow Plantation here in Summerdale, Alabama as people head off for the holidays. We have talked to people who are going as far north as Louisville and as far west as California to be with family and friends. Others, like us, are hunkering down in a comfortable RV park […]

After spending the weekend cooped up inside the bus, yesterday I wanted to get out and breathe in some fresh air. We ran a couple of errands, stopped to talk to a dealer about a Winnebago Ultimate Advantage we saw for sale at a car dealer’s lot in Goshen, and decided that they would rather […]

Muskegon, Michigan is located on the shore of mighty Lake Michigan, and the city’s history and personality were greatly influenced by its maritime heritage. Even though it is not as busy at it once was, the waterfront is still a busy place, though these days the pleasure boats far outnumber the working vessels. In addition […]
