You all know what that is, right? That’s all the misinformation, innuendo, and BS that anybody associated with politics and the media puts out these days. Well, apparently I’m just as guilty as the rest of them. But in my defense, I really couldn’t help it. After all, besides publishing the Gypsy Journal for the […]

Frugal Or Cheap?

I got an e-mail yesterday from a reader who asked why anyone would consider spending a night at a WalMart, truck stop, or highway rest area when there are so many campgrounds around the country. She asked if the RVers who do this are all cheapskates, or it there is ever a legitimate reason to […]

When people ask me how I come up with all the plots I use in my mystery novels, I tell them I’m not really all that creative, I just write down what the voices in my head tell me to. What? You don’t have voices in your head? Sure you do! Maybe your voices don’t give […]

I’m a klutz. I was born a klutz and I’ll die a klutz. Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if I died from being a klutz! My dad used to say that I should probably get a job in a mattress factory, but I’ve always suspected that if I did I’ve have been smothered by an […]

In a blog about being two-gether that I wrote few months ago, I said that communication and compromise are necessary to work out problems in any relationship, and especially for an RVing couple. I think that many times problems arise because someone doesn’t understand what their partner needs or wants, and this may be because […]

Getting Busy

As we get closer to the Escapees Escapade rally next week at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Elkhart Campground is getting busier. Yesterday it seemed like one RV after another pulled in. But there is still plenty of room for anyone needing a nice place to stay until the rally starts. Terry and I have been […]

Yesterday I wrote about how much we love the fulltime RV lifestyle, but it’s not for everybody and we have seen a lot of fulltimers come and go over the years. Some dropped out because once they were out on the road away from family and friends they realized that it just wasn’t for them, […]

Of all the groups I thought I’d get in trouble with, I never expected it to be the Veterans of Foreign Wars! I’ve been a member of the VFW for many years, but yesterday I got a certified letter from Robert B. Greene, Quartermaster General of the national headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, rather rudely […]

I was back at it again all day yesterday, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal pretty much nonstop all day long, and into the evening. I got a lot accomplished and by the time I gave up for the day I had 15 of 36 pages done. That feels good. About 5 […]

After two weeks at the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails preserve near Batesville, Indiana, it was time for some new scenery. We really liked the campground and the area around it, but management’s apparent lack of concern about the rowdy pipeline crowd that stays there long term spoils a lot of the experience. I’m not sure […]
