Before I do anything else, I want to wish our pal Chris Yust happy birthday. Not only is Chris our insurance agent, she and her hubby Charles are two of our oldest friends in the RV world. We first met at an  Escapees RV Club rally in Goshen, Indiana what seems like a lifetime ago when we were […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we have been getting a lot of rain here in northern Indiana. But even the weatherman on the 11 PM news on Monday didn’t know how much we were going to get. They were predicting up to three inches, but the storm was just getting started by then. Depending […]

Tuesday afternoon I sent the new issue of the Gypsy Journal off to the printer in Michigan, and yesterday was a goof off day. We slept in a bit and then spent some time snuggling and enjoying not having to jump right back into the computer work before we finally got up and ready to […]

I had another rough night Monday night, so when we got out of bed at 7:30 yesterday morning I wasn’t ready to start the day. But we had to get some miles put behind us, so I only sniveled a little bit as I got dressed and we started getting ready to hit the road. […]

Sometimes Less Is More

One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

Terry still wasn’t feeling back to normal yesterday, so instead of flying kites again we ran a few errands in town, stopped at the farmers market, and then came home. So for today’s blog, I thought I would share some of the questions I have received lately and my answers. Q. Do you guys ever […]

It’s A Circus

It’s been a circus here at the South Jetty Thousand Trails preserve in Florence, Oregon this weekend. RVs have been going every direction on the narrow roads, meeting head on and having to back up, and trying to shoehorn large rigs into small, tight sites. So far nobody seems to have lost their temper and […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. JC and Beverly Webber […]

A Stay At Home Day

Playing tourist is fun on vacation, but when you do it every day it’s hard work. We’ve been on the go since we got to Titusville and even before that, and we were getting tired. So yesterday we had a stay at home day. But that didn’t mean it was a do nothing day; we […]

I love getting e-mails from RVers and wannabes and I try hard to answer their questions if I can, or else point them in the right direction to get the information they need. But sometimes I get one that just makes me shake my head in wonder at the things people ask. As a cop […]
