A while back I posted a blog titled Strange Sights about some of the oddball things we have seen in our 17 years wandering America’s highways and back roads as fulltime RVers. But we’re not the only ones who see things that leave us scratching our heads and saying “huh?” When our friends Tom and […]

Why Is It So High?

Over the years we have been in a lot of RVs. Everything from small Class C motorhomes to huge fifth wheel trailers and mega coaches with four slides. A lot of them are sold on the “Wow” factor. You know what that is, right? A customer walks in, sees the pretty carpeting and all of […]

It’s Been Fun

We have really enjoyed our week here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my son Travis and his wife Geli. We’ve got his hydroponic garden set up, the seeds have been planted, and it’s ready to go. We have shared a lot of love and laughter in the past few days, and it’s been fun. But now […]

A Difficult Decision

It looks like we got out of Florida just in time. I heard from a couple of friends down there that tropical storm Colin has brought a lot of wind and rain to the Sunshine State. Meanwhile, here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, we’ve had some rain and it is still hot, but there has been hardly […]

Quick Fixes

They say that timing is everything, and for some reason whenever an RVer is getting ready to hit the road, the gremlins decide that is the perfect time to mess with you. You don’t have to be an RV tech to be able to do some quick fixes to solve a lot of problems so […]

One of the things new or wannabe fulltime RVers sometimes worry about is making friends on the road. Then when they get out here, they’re surprised at how many friends they have! And unlike the so-called “friends” they had in their former life, who were sometimes friends of convenience because they worked together or bowled […]

It sure feels good to be writing again. Anytime I’m away from it I realize how much I miss doing it. Except for my daily RV blog I have not had any time for writing the last few weeks, but I’m back at it and things are rolling right along. Friday I wrote 1,500 words […]

Another Windy Day

One thing you can count on in Arizona during late winter through summer is wind. Lots and lots of wind. And yesterday was another very windy day here in Tucson. I was sure glad we were not out on the highway. But we did see a few RVs leaving Voyager RV Resort and new ones […]

Did anybody else NOT give a damn that yesterday was Pi Day? I got e-mails and Facebook posts about Pi Day all day long. A million idiots all jazzed up because it won’t happen again in our lifetime. So what? Last Monday won’t happen again either. We had hoped to spend the week after Escapade […]

Catch Up Time

Since vending and seminars ended for us on Wednesday and we didn’t have far to go to our next destination, we slept in until 9 yesterday morning. That sure felt good after the last few hectic days. Several people wanted bundles of the Gypsy Journal to drop off in their travels, including our pals Dave […]
