You can tell it’s mid-March in Florida because the crickets are chirping and the snowbirds are starting to make their migration back up north. Low fuel prices and cold weather in other parts of the country have made for full campgrounds here in the Sunbelt all winter. But in the last few days we’ve seen […]

We were pretty worn out from waking up early and our nearly 400 mile trip Thursday, so we slept soundly our first night here at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort. I’d have liked to have slept in a little bit yesterday morning, but was awakened to the sound of a maintenance guy trimming the brush […]

The best part of the fulltime RV lifestyle is that we usually write our plans in Jello so we can change them any time we want or need to. And it happens more often that you might think. We shook up the Jello a while back when we delayed our departure from Florida by a […]

Christmas morning we were up early again, and it was chilly enough that we really had to force ourselves out from under those warm covers. We really need to break this new habit of getting up so early! Mark and Sue Didelot were getting ready to go to a family Christmas celebration, and we wanted […]

It’s just as well that I’m stuck inside working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, because it’s raining again. We had one mostly clear day Wednesday to give us a break, but yesterday it started all over again, with more rain forecast today. I know a couple of people who want to leave […]
