We’ve been putting in some long hours the last week or so, getting the new issue printed and ready to mail out, and frankly, we needed a break. So when Jan White declared yesterday an official play day, it didn’t take a lot of convincing to get us to agree. Basically, Jan said “Let’s go […]

This part of northern Indiana is a stronghold of the Amish people, and wherever you travel around the communities of Elkhart, Goshen, Nappanee, and the surrounding area, you are likely to see Amish women  in their simple handmade dresses, their heads covered in white kapps, and men wearing black straw hats or stocking caps. There […]

Whether we’re in our motorhome or our van, whenever time allows, we always prefer to travel the two lane back roads wherever we are going. A Denny’s or a Flying J truck stop are pretty much the same, whether they are at an interstate highway exit in Arizona or Tennessee. But on the back roads […]

Yesterday we wrapped up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, our 68th issue. That’s a lot of travel stories! Today we will take it to our printer in Michigan, and they will give everything a once over, print it on Wednesday afternoon, and we’ll pick it up Thursday morning. But we’re not done yet, […]

We have been having a lot of fun here in Muskegon, Michigan with Berni and Rocky Frees. It is amazing how we can be apart from those two for a year, and the minute we get back together, the fun picks back up right where we left off. Yesterday they both had to work, so […]

This afternoon, Terry has her annual checkup with her oncologist, and we’re looking forward to getting that behind us for another year. Terry has been cancer free for ten years now, […]

I think the old Willy Nelson song with the above title must be the theme song for fulltime RVers, and I bet a lot of us hum or sing it to ourselves when we pull out of a campground. It sure brought a smile to my face to do so yesterday morning! It was 19 […]

Being able to adapt to the challenges life throws at us are an essential part of the fulltime RVer’s psychological toolbox. They say that the only thing that stays the same is change, and that’s certainly true whether you live in a sticks and bricks house, or a home on wheels. No matter how carefully […]

I talked to the owner of the RV shop where our burglary and vandalism took place over the weekend, and he told us to be there when they opened this morning, and he and his crew would do whatever needs to be done to get us back on the road in time to get to […]

Terry and I both want to thank all of you who posted comments on the blog, e-mailed, or called us after reading about our encounter with an armed burglar in our RV. Your concern and support are very much appreciated. We are okay, but both of us feel totally wiped out, I think myself more […]
