Note: This story appeared in the March-April 2015 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Who hasn’t dreamed of living in a rustic log cabin perched on the shore of a clear, cold mountain lake at one time or another? It sounds almost as much fun as living in an RV, doesn’t it? While touring St. Augustine, […]

My cousin Berni and her husband Rocky have been visiting us from Muskegon, Michigan for a few days, and we have had a good time showing them some of the local attractions. The other day we took them to the Sugar Mill Ruins in nearby New Smyrna Beach. These ruins date back to the early […]

We spent yesterday surrounded by history in one of our favorite cities in the whole country, St. Augustine, Florida. If you have never visited the oldest continuously occupied European-established city in America, you really need to do yourself a favor and plan a trip there. But I’m warning you in advance, one visit will never […]

I have a friend who is much younger than me, the father of two children, who went through a bad patch in his marriage a while back. It looked like things were over between him and his wife and he moved out for a while, at her request. Fortunately, they seem to be working things […]

If you are history nuts like we are, what’s better than going to see a 275 year old fort? How about going to see a 275 year old fort and getting a free pontoon boat ride in the process? I love my job! The rain came down all night Tuesday night but yesterday dawned with […]

Even workaholics need a day off now and then, so when our pal Chris Yust told us that she and Charles were taking yesterday off to go play and that Miss Terry and I were going to do the same thing, who was I to argue? They picked us up a little before 10 o’clock […]

The Best Medicine

They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to live forever. I learned a long time ago that a sense of humor will get you through just about anything, and one of the best things you can possess is the ability to laugh at yourself. I […]

Living and traveling in an RV fulltime, you just never know how many interesting places you’ll discover, and how many more you drive right on past without even knowing they are there. It’s amazing what you can find with just a couple of quick Internet searches. A good example is Manasota Memorial Park, a cemetery […]

Terry and I love being on beaches, whether they be on the wild Pacific Northwest coast, along the Texas Gulf Coast, or here in Florida. So when our friends John and Kathy Huggins from Living the RV Dream asked us if we wanted to go to Lido Beach in Sarasota to watch the sunset yesterday, […]

Note: This story was in the March-April, 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. You’ve been to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. You may have even been to Carhenge, near Alliance, Nebraska. But have you ever been to Florida’s Airstream Ranch? Situated on the south side of Interstate 4 in Dover, Florida, along with all of […]
