I got an email yesterday from a someone who has only been RVing for about three months and was incensed because they went to a campground here in Florida and discovered it was completely full due to spring break and some big local festival that was going on at the same time. The campground owner […]

You can tell it’s mid-March in Florida because the crickets are chirping and the snowbirds are starting to make their migration back up north. Low fuel prices and cold weather in other parts of the country have made for full campgrounds here in the Sunbelt all winter. But in the last few days we’ve seen […]

A campground membership can be a good investment if you get it at the right price and use it. But if all you are doing is paying your annual dues and stopping a few times a year at campgrounds in your membership, it can be a waste of money. Only you can decide if a […]

After sad goodbyes and lots of hugs with Greg and Jan, we pulled out of Hardeeville RV Park at 10 AM yesterday morning, headed for Florida. The weather report predicted winds picking up in the afternoon, but since we only had a four hour run to St. Augustine we decided to go for it. Within […]

Even though we’re far south of where Hurricane Sandy came ashore, and have had pretty good weather since we’ve been here, it took a turn for the worse yesterday. The wind blew hard most of the day and the temperature dropped quite a bit. I don’t think the high got much over 60° and the […]

I was up before 9 a.m. yesterday morning, and I had hoped to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal wrapped up and uploaded to the printer’s web server by early afternoon. But we all know how plans can sometimes go awry, don’t we? I ran into some problems in layout, basically in making […]

I swear, it seems like we never have enough time to get everything done that we want to. I need about 12 more hours in every day! We only have about three weeks left here in Florida before we have to start heading west to get set up for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally in […]

Stuffing envelopes. Many, many envelopes. That about sums up our first day of the new year. Miss Terry has been busy getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal stuffed into envelopes so we can get it mailed off first thing Monday morning, so I don’t think she even stepped outside all day long. That […]

Sometimes I don’t have anything special to write about, because a lot of the time, living in an RV is just like living in a house or apartment. We do chores, we goof off, we visit friends, and before we know it, the day is gone. Yesterday was a good example. My friend Dave Damon […]
