Now The Work Begins

 With only a few more days left before we hit the road, it’s time to begin the work of preparing and packing the motorhome for our summer RV travels. Yesterday we moved the RV out of the storage lot and over to the big concrete apron in front of our house. We weren’t sure the […]

That is the question. While I’d really love to take my iMac out to the local cinder pit and blow it to pieces with my AR-15, that’s probably juvenile, right? And besides, it would make a mess and I’d spend the rest of the day picking up pieces of it to haul away. No, not […]

Yesterday we made another trip down to Paradise Oaks RV Resort to sit in on the afternoon session of the TechnoGeek Learning Rally. Things have sure come a long way since we started our adventure as fulltime RVers fourteen years ago. Back then we had to lug our laptop computer down to the campground office, […]

Teetering On The Edge

We are running into one frustrating snag after another with our Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally and we are teetering on the edge of whether or not to even hold it, so I’m going to vent a little bit here, if you will allow me. Two years ago the fairgrounds changed the starting time for our […]

I have managed to get a lot done on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal in the last couple of days, and I only have eight pages left to go. Barring any unexpected problems, I’ll easily make my deadline by the end of the week. I’m looking forward to getting it done so I […]

Wow, I go away for one afternoon and the whole world changes! What’s up with that? I had to get up earlier than usual for me yesterday morning, because I needed to be wide awake for a 9 a.m. conference call. I’ve found that folks tend to get offended or lose confidence in you if […]

I was hoping that the cold weather here in northern Indiana may have forced the gremlins who inhabit my computer to follow the rest of the RV snowbirds south, but alas, the little buggers are still hanging on. We use a commercial mail service for sending the Gypsy Journal to most of our subscribers, who […]

The title of today’s blog says it all. That’s how I feel sometimes, including right now. About the time I think I have a good handle on something, some unforeseen and unexplainable problem shows up. After a couple of years of experimenting, we launched our digital edition of the Gypsy Journal several issues back, and […]

Living on limited electric power seems to be a major concern for many RVers, and I have never understood why. Time and time again I have had people ask when registering for our Gypsy Gathering rallies if we will have 50 amp power available. When I tell them that (depending on the location) we will […]
