While folks in Texas and Louisiana are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, here in Florida we are watching the Caribbean, where Hurricane Irma is making a path toward us. Or at least that’s one of the paths. If and where she will land in Florida is still in question. Here’s an idea; […]

Watching news coverage of the devastation along the Texas Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey is personal to us. Before we settled on Florida, we looked long and hard at the area around Rockport and Aransas Pass, which was in the predicted direct path of the hurricane’s landfall. They are charming little towns with lots of […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish my friend Don Del Rosario happy birthday. Don and his pretty wife Sharon are very special people who have brightened our world for a long time. We need to get together for a visit the next time we’re in Arizona, or if you make it to […]

Thank you to all of you who sent emails, posted blog comments or on Facebook wishing us well, offering to come to our assistance if necessary, and praying for our safety after my blog about our breakdown on Sunday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the last of our troubles on the Trip From Hell, but we are […]

This is going to be a long blog because I’ve got two days to tell you about and a lot’s been happening in those two days. And, I’m going to do a bit of bitching, so be prepared. I told you so! We left our home in Edgewater, Florida a little before noon on Friday […]

Unless something catastrophic and totally unexpected happens overnight, we will be on the road this morning, headed west. We still have to move the food from the refrigerator in the house to one in the motorhome, I have to unhook my computer and take it out to the RV, and then we are off like […]

Maybe It’s Jealous

Thanks to everybody for your suggestions about the problem with our bedroom slide out. Yesterday morning I went outside and ran the living room slide in and out with no problems and tested the leveling jacks, and they worked fine. But the bedroom slide still wouldn’t do anything. Then, just to see, I started the […]

Note: This story is from the November-December, 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. The wild Dakota Territory left a mark on the young Theodore Roosevelt, who would become the 26th President of the United States, and there is no doubt that the man left his own mark on the land. Roosevelt, a lifelong outdoorsman, came […]

It’s Not Hay Fever

A lot of people in Florida are walking around with red, burning eyes, and I think the stock in the company that makes Kleenex has gone up dramatically. But it’s not hay fever or some other seasonal allergy, it’s because of smoke. There are currently more than 100 wildfires burning in the state, one just […]

Ever since I started doing seminars at RV rallies, one thing that I have preached over and over is that both partners in an RV must know how to hookup and drive the rig, even if only one of them is the primary driver. As I always say, you don’t have to know how to […]
