Quite a few of you have asked how traveling to Arizona and back in our Chrysler Pacifica compared to traveling in our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage diesel pusher. There are pros and cons to both methods of travel, but really, it’s like comparing apples and oranges. While there are some similarities, there are also many differences. […]

My longtime friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for a while now, waiting to close on a home he bought a block or so away. The closing happened on Wednesday, and yesterday we went into Port Orange and Daytona Beach looking for some furniture he needed. Our first stop was at some kind […]

We left the Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida a little before 10 a.m. yesterday for the 280 mile trip back to the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange. The trip would not be uneventful. When people ask me about safety in an RV, I always tell them that you are much more likely […]

Today’s blog is going to be more show than tell because I’ve got some really neat old RVs to show you today! The Northern Indiana Vintage Trailer Rally is going on here at Elkhart Campground, and yesterday Miss Terry and I, along with our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel, spent most of the afternoon wandering […]

¬†We’ve been in a lot of campgrounds that have different kinds of entertainment over the years, including everything from bingo, to jam sessions, to movie nights. But my buddy Gary Greene, the manager of the Orlando Thousand Trails¬†preserve, goes the extra mile and provides alligator wrestling! After a day out exploring with our friends Charles […]

It’s always fun to meet our readers and make new friends, and that’s just what we got to do yesterday. Sometime in the early afternoon there was a knock on our motorhome’s door and I opened it to find Terry and Diane Pyatt standing there. They introduced themselves and Terry said he is a devoted […]

The latest nonsense making the circuit around campfires and RV internet forums is about gangs of thugs approaching RVers at truck stops while they are getting fuel and luring them to the back of their rigs by claiming somebody hit them and telling them that they have a big dent. When they follow them to […]

I have had several e-mail and online discussions with folks recently about what is the best RV for their needs. I do a 90 minute seminar at RV shows and rallies called How To Be A Smart RV Shopper. It’s never enough time to cover all of the things that a lot of buyers never […]

Our three weeks at the Long Beach Thousand Trails ended yesterday and we moved about 35 miles south back to Seaside, which is one of our favorite parks in the entire Thousand Trails system. We had one of the nicest sites at Long Beach, where most RV sites are very tight and their weird utility […]

I’ve been working hard on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I’m still at it, but getting closer to wrapping it up every day. When I knocked off to write the blog at 10 last night I had eight pages to go. Since the temperature is supposed to be in the triple digits […]
