We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night. […]

In The Mail

After a weekend of nonstop work, Terry finished stuffing the last of the envelopes yesterday evening and this morning the new issue of the Gypsy Journal will be in the mail. We’re disappointed in the print job this time around, and I apologize in advance. Usually our printer in Allegan, Michigan does a good job, […]

Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. Do we ever have any other kind? Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. We were up a little after 9 a.m., and after one of Terry’s delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast and answering a lot of e-mails, we drove sixteen miles to Clermont to buy enough postage stamps […]

We left the campground with Greg and Jan a little after 10 a.m. yesterday on a mission. We were going to meet some new friends for lunch in the nearby town of Lebanon. We got to town a few minutes early and used the time to cruise the main street, which was lined with interesting […]

Yesterday was hot and muggy. It almost felt like you could cut the air with a knife. It was a good day for writing and that’s pretty much what I did all day, knocking out another 4,500 words in my new book. I really want to get it done by the end of the month […]

I want to start today’s blog by wishing my mother-in-law Bess a happy birthday. I’m sorry we can’t be there with you on your special day, Bess, but we’ll see you soon. In the meantime, we’re sending you lots of love and virtual hugs. Sometimes when we are working we just seem to lose all […]

Frugal Vs Cheap

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]

Quick Road Trip

I keep hoping that now that I have stopped using the Fluorouracil cream on my face things will start to get back to normal. And it is, but very slowly. At this point I just look like I have a really, really bad sunburn. The pain has eased up a lot, but due to my […]

Our two weeks at Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction went by in a blur, between running back and forth to the hospital to be with our friends Sharleen and Jim, dealing with the major discomfort of the Fluorouracil treatment on my face, and working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. We […]

A Lot Accomplished

Running our business on the road gives us a lot of freedom. We pretty much set our own schedule, we sometimes work hard for days in a row, then we take some time off to play or just relax. And since we’re not locked into a schedule, we don’t have to fight the weekend crowds […]
