Except for putting the front page photo in place and then printing it out to be proofed, which I will do this morning, the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is pretty much done. And since that’s about all I’ve been doing lately and I don’t have anything else to write about today, I thought […]

After I posted my Valentine’s Day blog about my parents, longtime reader Bettie Kincaid said it reminded her of another blog I did on our anniversary last year, titled Our Love Story, and said maybe romance ran in the Russell family. She added that she and her husband fulltimed for two years but decided to […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

As an author of mystery novels, I’m constantly seeing some crazy thing in the news and saying that if I included that in one of my books, nobody would believe it. After all, I get a lot of people saying that some of the questions I tell you about that I get from our readers […]

I got an email yesterday from someone who needed clarification on a couple of things and said he wanted to pick my brain. My first thought was, “that should only take half a minute or so.” He said that he refers to his Jayco travel trailer, which he and his family use just about every […]

Some blog readers who live here in the great state of Alabama have been apologizing to me for how bad the weather has been during our visit to Tuscaloosa, as have been my son Travis and his wife Geli. Please don’t feel that way, you folks cannot control the weather. But apparently I do have […]

Sometimes Less Is More

One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

In our first year on the road, we made a pilgrimage to Slab City in Niland, California. If you’re not familiar with this outpost of individuality, Slab City is located on the site of an abandoned World War II Marine training base. It is home to a motley collection of people that most would call […]

Yesterday was the last day of vending at the Tucson Escapade, as well as the last day of my seminars. It’s all over for another year, and as much fun as we have had, and as much as we enjoyed seeing so many of our old friends and making new ones, I don’t think either […]

I got an e-mail the other day from a blog reader asking me if I was worried about crime problems when we were camping at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas, and then Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission, since both places were so close to the Mexican border. Actually, Columbus is […]
