Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Kay Peterson, one of the finest ladies I have ever had the honor of knowing, a very happy birthday. For those of you who don’t know Miss Kay, she and her late husband Joe founded the Escapees RV Club, which in my opinion (and that […]

After writing about the couple who were offered a workcamping position in Branson, Missouri that was far from equitable, I received some questions from blog readers about workamping. One was how hard is it to find workcamping jobs, and where do you look for them? One of the best resources around is Workamper News. In […]

I will never forget our first Thanksgiving on the road. We had been stuck in the Phoenix area waiting for RV repairs and when they finally got done we just wanted to be gone. We hit the road and found ourselves in an RV park in Saint David, Arizona that night. The next day we […]

Note: I posted this in the blog several years ago, but based upon the questions I get, I thought it was worth updating and sharing again. No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds, and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces and enjoy […]

I have a reputation for taking bad weather with me wherever I go. People can be enjoying balmy sunshine for weeks on end, and the day after I arrive it starts to snow or they get a record rainfall. At our Gypsy Journal rally in Yuma, Arizona years ago, they got their whole year’s quota […]

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 […]

Miss Terry wanted me to thank everybody for all of your wonderful birthday wishes in the blog, on Facebook, in e-mails, and even in telephone calls yesterday. You all made her feel very special. We started Terry’s birthday by staying in bed and snuggling yesterday morning. Unless we have to be on the road or […]

If you are a subscriber to the digital edition of the Gypsy Journal, check your e-mail inbox, because you’ve got mail. We finished the new edition yesterday, and late yesterday evening I sent out the link to all of our subscribers. I think our readers are really going to like this issue. In addition to […]

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 […]

┬áIn today’s blog I thought I would answer a few questions that I seem to get on a regular basis. But before I do, let me say that my answers are what work for us. What works for you may be entirely different. The first question is, how do we access Internet on the road, […]
