Or a kite flier. The wind has really been blowing here in Bushnell, Florida, and all over the central part of the state, according to the weather reports. Unfortunately, we’re not on a beach and we haven’t found any place big enough to fly our Revolution┬ákites. Yet. But trust me, we will. Yesterday we went […]

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

Anybody who has spent much time wandering around in the outdoors knows that Mother Nature has a system of checks and balances. If there is season or two with good rain and good weather, small game like rabbits will appear in abundance. And being rabbits they breed like…. well, rabbits. One would think that before […]

When you have a problem with a product, they say the first thing to do is RTFM. If you’re not familiar with that technical acronym, it means Read The F*****g Manual. Yeah, like a guy’s going to do that, right? Hell, we usually throw the manual away with the box the product came in, along […]

Getting packages delivered can sometimes be a hassle for fulltime RVers. Some campgrounds will allow you to have things sent to them and others will not. When that happens you have to have it sent General Delivery to the local post office, or else to a local company that accepts packages for travelers. Some of […]

That’s Just Wrong!

We were up at Oh-Dark-Thirty yesterday morning to get the motorhome packed up and ready to go to for an appointment to get both windshields replaced at 10:30. Just before it was time to leave I called to confirm the directions to the shop and they said because it was raining and our RV is […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

Kite Up, Nick Down

Do you remember a while back when I wrote that this campground was a circus, with RVs coming and going in every direction? Well, I think they added a third ring for the holiday weekend. I don’t think you could shoehorn a roller skate in here at this point, but I still see rigs lined […]

Yesterday we got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal in the mail. It’s always good to get that chore behind us. And to get the load off of our hard working Ford Explorer. It can be a challenge to find enough stamps in the correct denominations, and quite often no post […]

Terry finally finished stuffing all of the envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and told me she needed a day out, so we spent yesterday on the go. Well, after a delayed start, we did. With the back of the Explorer packed with bins of envelopes, the first order of business was […]
