Being working RVers and with a daily blog that gets a high readership, being able to get online is very important to us. In fact, we have avoided going some places because we could not get a reliable signal. We don’t just surf the internet, it’s an important tool to get our jobs done. Over […]

I had an epiphany yesterday, which was pretty cool, because I don’t think I’ve ever had one of those before. Oh hell, let’s be honest, up until a week ago, I thought an epiphany was one of those hybrid foreign cars. :)  And they call me the wordsmith? Anyway, back to my epiphany. Yesterday I […]

I woke up yesterday morning to the sound of far off rain, and then I realized that it wasn’t rain after all, but rather the sound of the wind in the tall pine trees here at the Show Low Elks lodge campground. Yes, it was windy again in northern Arizona, as it is all too […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

This is our last day vending at the FMCA rally, and though sales have not been what we had hoped for, they are about what we expected them to be. We have covered our expenses, and we have introduced a lot of people to the Gypsy Journal. Hopefully when they get back home or wherever […]
