A Great Little Find

As I said in yesterday’s blog, using the self-drilling screws to attach the furring strips in our garage wasn’t working out, and I planned to get some carbide tipped drill bits to make drilling pilot holes easier. We have a great little family owned business just a mile or so from us called Anchor Hardware, […]

What’s The Point?

I got an email yesterday from a long time RVing friend saying that he was reminded of my blog post a week or so ago titled Info RVers Can Use, in which I talked about having a magnetic Hide-A-Key somewhere on your RV so you could get back in if you ever lock yourself out. […]

I would venture to say that at least half of all fulltime and seasonal RVers we know travel with at least one pet, and sometimes more. And most of those pets are dogs and cats, though we have seen people with other pets that are a little more exotic. These have included somebody who traveled […]

Making Some Headway

I think we’re making some headway with my back problems but it seems like it’s two steps forward and one step back. After going back to the chiropractor on Tuesday and getting an adjustment, I was still experiencing some tenderness but nothing compared to the pain I had been dealing with for five days. In […]

Having lived in northern Arizona for many years before we became fulltime RVers, I was well familiar with Meteor Crater, located just off of Interstate 40 between Winslow and Flagstaff. We had a story about a visit there in an issue of the Gypsy Journal. But on a trip last summer across Texas, I was […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to thank everybody for your blog comments, emails, instant messages, and Facebook posts wishing us a happy 20th anniversary. There were so many of them that I’m sure I didn’t get back to everybody personally, but please know that all of your kind words touched our hearts. […]

We Need A Calendar

Somebody told me once that you start becoming old the day you buy one of those little plastic boxes with the days of the week numbered on them so you know when to take your pills. I don’t think we are quite there yet, but we seem to have reached the point where we need […]

Oops, I Goofed!

Blog reader Randy McRae sent me an email yesterday asking me why there was no free drawing this week. Randy thought it was because of the holiday, but the truth is I goofed and just completely forgot about it. Sorry about that. I’ll get back on track for next week. This last week was really […]

I spent some time yesterday having an email conversation with a couple who are in their fourth year of fulltiming and said they feel like they are in a rut. Like all new fulltimers, when they started out they expected to be seeing new sites and having new adventures all the time, but in their […]

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 […]
