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 […]

And Away We Go!

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 […]

It Can Happen To You

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 […]

I got an email yesterday from a blog reader asking me if I had read an article on the website saying that due to the dramatic increase in the number of RVers on the road these days, the spontaneous road trip is pretty much a thing of the past. The article showed pictures used […]

Timing Is Everything

They say that timing is everything, and I think there’s a lot of truth to that. Did you ever stop to think about how things happen, or don’t happen, just because the timing is or isn’t right? What if you had left the house five minutes earlier? Would you have been in the middle of […]

Size Matters

Note: This is a reprint from a 2014 blog post. One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel, or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question because no one size fits all RV has […]

We have had a cold snap here in central Florida. Wednesday the high was only 59° and it got down to 39° overnight, and yesterday it warmed all the way up to a high of 60° and overnight it dropped down to 40°. Now, compared to what the folks in the Midwest and New England […]
