It seems like the weather here in central Florida goes from one extreme to the other. Last week we had daytime temperatures in the mid-80s and now we have a cold front headed our way and the weatherman is saying it will bring rain with it and we will be lucky if we hit a […]

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. Whether you’re at home having a meal with family, sharing a meal with friends in an RV park, or are going out to dinner someplace, I hope you have a wonderful time. And I hope you take a moment or two to think about all that we have to be thankful for. There is […]

Not Even One

Two years ago today I came home to our RV at the Escapees Jojoba Hills Co-op in Aguanga, California after spending most of a week in terrible pain at the hospital in nearby Temecula. When we first got to the hospital I thought I might be having a heart attack because the symptoms were very […]

This time of year I always seem to get a lot of emails and see a lot of comments on social media from new fulltime RVers and RV snowbirds wondering how to handle the holidays. For a lot of newbies, and even for some experienced road warriors, Thanksgiving and Christmas provide a certain amount of […]

In yesterday’s blog, when I talked about RV fire extinguishers I recommend my friend Mac McCoy, the world’s acknowledged RV fire safety expert, and included a link to his website. As it turns out, I goofed. When Mac and I talked a few weeks ago, he told me that he was planning to pull the […]

When I wrote in the blog that I had an appointment at the VA medical clinic in Daytona Beach yesterday afternoon. a couple of people sent messages asking if everything was okay. Yes, nothing to worry about, everything’s okay. Or at least as okay as it ever is for a fat 65 year old guy. […]

We love our home here on Florida’s central coast. We really do. We’ve got plenty of room for all of our activities, from Terry’s huge weaving room to my snug little office, a garage that is large enough to hold all of our toys and then some, and we are just minutes from the beach. […]

Sometimes when I’m working on a project I will park myself in front of the computer and stay there for several days at a time, cranking out a lot of words. Which is what I did most of last week. Then I have to give myself a break and take a little bit of time […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we planned to make a slower trip back home to Florida when we left Houston, stopping to see a couple of places we had not been able to get to before. After our unplanned overnight stop in Sulfur, Louisiana to get our Explorer’s air-conditioning compressor replaced, we drove 45 […]

We made some wonderful memories and met some amazing people during our years as fulltime RVers. If nothing else, there was never a dull moment! The other day our friend Lynette Milligan McHenry had this photo on her Facebook wall, and it sure got a lot of laughs. This was during our Indiana Gypsy Journal […]
