Smacked Down By Karma

In a blog post a few days ago, I bragged about driving down the beach in New Smyrna Beach watching all of the pretty girls in their skimpy bikinis while my pal Rocky Frees is stuck up in Muskegon, Michigan shoveling snow. I should have known better than to gloat like that, so I wasn’t […]

Based upon the comments I got both here in the blog and by email in response to yesterday’s blog, You Must Plan Ahead, it’s obvious that there is a lot of interest in being able to spend the winter in places like Arizona and Florida, and also obvious that there are a lot of people […]

Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

Just Biding Our Time

We have spent the last few days just biding our time here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, waiting until we can go back to the coast. I’ve spent most of the time working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, researching some other writing projects, watching storm coverage on TV, and cruising […]

We started yesterday by having brunch with our friend Michele Henry and her pretty daughter Raven, who are here from Elkhart, Indiana for a few days. We had a nice visit and shared a few laughs. After stops at Books-A-Million and Bed Bath and Beyond, we came back to Horseshoe Cove RV Resort, our home […]

Goodbye TTO

Yesterday it was time to say goodbye to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, known simply as TTO to Thousand Trails members who frequent this huge campground in central Florida. It’s become almost a second home to us; this was our second two-week stay this winter, and when we are in Florida we have stayed several […]

One of the nice perks of publishing the Gypsy Journal RV newspaper and this RV blog is that we get to test a lot of neat RV accessories and gadgets when something new or updated hits the market. Over the years we’ve been able to evaluate everything from cordless vacuum cleaners to inverters, GPS units, waterless […]

Rain On The Roof

Is there any better way to sleep than with the sound of rain on the roof of your RV? If there is, I haven’t found it yet. It beats the heck out of any kind of over-the-counter or prescription sleep aid ever invented as far as I’m concerned. We got a late start yesterday just […]

It Got Here Eventually

When we had dinner with Charles and Chris Yust Friday evening we had discussed going to New Smyrna Beach yesterday. They have not been there, and there were three or four properties that we wanted to look at. So we were up early yesterday morning but the weather didn’t look too good. I messaged a […]

Just Don’t Have One!

Today’s blog is going to start with a bit of a rant and it’s not about a pleasant subject, so you may want to scroll down or skip today’s post. I got an e-mail from some folks who were upset about an incident that did not have to happen and just pisses me off. They […]
