I got an email yesterday from a someone who has only been RVing for about three months and was incensed because they went to a campground here in Florida and discovered it was completely full due to spring break and some big local festival that was going on at the same time. The campground owner […]

If you are a Gypsy Journal subscriber, check your e-mail. Yesterday morning I made the final corrections after Terry proofread the new issue, then I uploaded it to our web server and sent the link out to our subscribers.

I guess because they don’t have enough to worry about with things like wars and natural disasters and politics, people are involved in a big debate going on online about the future availability of campgrounds and how hard it is becoming to find a last-minute campsite in many areas.

We called around and got the […]

That old Boy Scout motto comes in handy in the RV lifestyle, just as it does in the rest of the world. Early one morning this week, the campground host here at the Show Low Elks campground came to our door to tell us that a construction crew had broken a sewer line near the […]

Note to self – If we ever hold another Gypsy Gathering rally at a commercial campground, we will require attendees to make their own reservations directly with the campground. The original plan was that the campground would have us handle the rally reservations, but it has become a nightmare as some people make reservations with […]

With our rally over, and Life on Wheels now gone, for the first time in a very long time, Terry and I have no place we have to be and nothing we have to do for the next seven months. I have to tell you, that is a nice feeling! It brings to mind the […]
