A few years ago we spent a few days at the Escapees Dreamcatcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico, and one Sunday morning when I went up to the office to check out so we could go on to Arizona, everybody was amazed that we’d travel on Super Bowl Sunday. I probably further advanced their […]

Note: This story was in the July-August 2005 issue of the Gypsy Journal. In the tiny community of Centreville, Mississippi, just a few miles north of the Louisiana state line, we came across a mystery that dates back to the days of the Great Depression and President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. Embedded in the […]

Sometimes I get questions about our weekly free drawings so I thought I would answer some of them here today. Quite a few people want to know how I pick the winners every week and how they can increase their chances of winning. I don’t pick the winners. I use a free website called Random.org […]

My longtime friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for a while now, waiting to close on a home he bought a block or so away. The closing happened on Wednesday, and yesterday we went into Port Orange and Daytona Beach looking for some furniture he needed. Our first stop was at some kind […]

For most of my working life I have been my own boss. I guess that’s probably because I don’t seem to play well with others. One thing I always tried to do, and always preached to my employees, is that the customer comes first. If you treat your customers right and make them glad they […]

I’m still dealing with the crud so we didn’t do much of anything yesterday. Two different couples asked us to go with them to dinner but I didn’t want to go out and expose the whole world to this cold, and didn’t feel much like socializing anyway. In the early afternoon a fellow named Gordon, […]

No, that’s not a typo that I left in the headline to give my proofreading friends a migraine. It’s a word that I made up to describe living long term with your spouse or partner in the close confines of an RV. It is a situation that can be either heaven on earth, or pure […]

When we tell people that we are fulltime RVers, one question they frequently ask us is what is our favorite place in the country. That’s like asking a parent which child is their favorite. We have so many “favorites” that I could never choose just one. One winter Terry and I made our first visit […]

Merry Christmas everybody. Whether you’re visiting family, in an RV park surrounded by friends, or spending a quiet day at home, I hope you have a wonderful day. I know we will. We actually had our family gathering yesterday at Terry’s parents’ house. Besides her mom and dad, her sister Lisa and her husband Jim […]
