In a blog last summer titled We Got Boosted I wrote about testing the weBoost 4G RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit, and I said then that in our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we have seen a lot of cell phone and Internet technology come and go, and in my opinion, that unit was […]

I loved history even back when I was a young boy in school, and I was always asking questions. So many questions that I think I frustrated my teachers sometimes. I remember once when I asked two or three questions about whatever the lesson was that day, my teacher told me that I had a […]

I got an email yesterday from a blog reader asking me if I had read an article on the RVtravel.com website saying that due to the dramatic increase in the number of RVers on the road these days, the spontaneous road trip is pretty much a thing of the past. The article showed pictures used […]

If you are a Gypsy Journal subscriber, check your e-mail. Yesterday morning I made the final corrections after Terry proofread the new issue, then I uploaded it to our web server and sent the link out to our subscribers. Today I will be sending out renewal notices to subscribers who are up for renewal. It’s […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, a big storm system was supposed to be making its way through the Southeast on Sunday, bringing the possibility of severe weather to central Florida. One should always be aware of the potential for threatening weather wherever they are. Especially if they live or travel in an RV. In […]

How many times have you heard someone say, “If I had it to do over, I sure would do things differently.” Yes, hindsight is always 20/20, but we make our choices and live with them. If they turn out not to be the best choices, hopefully we learn from them. My father used to always […]

Note: I have shared these tips in the Gypsy Journal and at the seminars I present at RV rallies, and thought my blog readers might find them useful as well. Spend enough time behind the wheel of a motorhome or dragging a fifth wheel or travel trailer around the country and you’ll eventually pick up a […]

When we first started spending our winters in Florida, even before we bought our house, people kept telling us about how bad this region was for hurricanes and asking us if we weren’t afraid of getting caught in one. No, not at all. In our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we dealt with tornadoes, wildfires, […]

Miss Terry and I had such a wonderful marriage for so long that some people even said we were codependent. If you saw one of us, you can bet the other was close at hand. Living in a motorhome for over 17 years, any time I looked up she was right there. I really miss […]

The title of this blog is also the title of my favorite Jimmy Buffett song, which he wrote after his first visit to Key West, Florida. If you have never listened to it before, check it out at this YouTube link. Miss Terry and I can relate to that song today. As most of you […]
