The other day I was going to the post office in Tuscaloosa to mail off some orders and was stopped at a traffic light when a man in the vehicle behind me got out and walked up to my window and said, “Hello Nick.” It was longtime reader and friend Jack Allen. He and his […]

I Broke My Own Rule

Yesterday afternoon I broke my own self-imposed rule not to enter a big box store between Thanksgiving and the middle of January. To me, nothing spoils the Christmas spirit like fighting for a parking space so I can go into a store and fight a crowd of people to find stuff I really don’t need, […]

We have met some interesting people in our 15 years as fulltime RVers running a business on the road. Most have been nice, but some have been, shall we say, interesting? Challenging? Unique? Early in our fulltime adventure we had signs on our truck that said Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper. Once, we were approached […]

We spent the three day weekend at home, getting the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to mail out, writing, and trying to avoid the cold weather. So yesterday it was time to get out and about for a while. Our first stop was the post office in Wildwood to drop […]

Yesterday Terry was feeling better, and we both had a bit of cabin fever, so we decided it was a good day to get out of the motorhome and run some errands. Our first stop was the post office in Wildwood, to drop off some orders that came in over the weekend. Since I had […]

It’s so darned cold out that even I’m ticked off at me for coming to Florida! At noon yesterday it was 41 degrees in Ocala, but it was 54 in Bismarck, North Dakota, and 51 in Kansas City, Kansas!  Would somebody please explain that to me? 🙁 Yesterday was a triple whammy for me. I […]

Yesterday afternoon, Al and Karen Phillips came to the campground to buy our hard shell Native Watercraft kayaks. Karen is a blog reader, and I have been exchanging  e-mails with her since September. It was nice to finally put a face with a name. They are new fulltimers, from Long Island, New York, and a […]

Am I the only one who is glad that Christmas is over? I enjoy the holiday music, and whatever little sliver of true Christmas spirit that remains, but the commercialism and frenzied shoppers drive me nuts. I’ll be glad to get back to normal. Or at least whatever passes for normal in our lives. Yesterday […]

We’ve got a great lifestyle and a nice little business, and I know that a lot of people would gladly trade places with us. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have our share of frustrations, too. There are some days when I just want to scream. Yesterday started very well. We were up and ready […]

The last few days, I haven’t done much except work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and Miss Terry has been just as busy catching up on bookkeeping and keeping our various mailing lists updated. So when we had to take some time off yesterday to go into Bushnell to pick up our […]
