We’ve been doing a lot of that since we got back home on Sunday afternoon. Catching up on email, catching up on blogs we have missed in the week we were on the road, catching up on laundry, and catching up on rest. And in today’s blog I will catch up on some things I […]

After everything that happened to us in the last week, when I got up early Saturday morning to talk to somebody at Rush Truck Center in Jacksonville, Florida, where we had been towed in the night before, I wasn’t feeling very optimistic. But I had a Facebook message saying that my nephew, Jack Russell, who […]

You all know what that is, right? That’s all the misinformation, innuendo, and BS that anybody associated with politics and the media puts out these days. Well, apparently I’m just as guilty as the rest of them. But in my defense, I really couldn’t help it. After all, besides publishing the Gypsy Journal for the […]

Thank you to all of you who sent emails, posted blog comments or on Facebook wishing us well, offering to come to our assistance if necessary, and praying for our safety after my blog about our breakdown on Sunday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the last of our troubles on the Trip From Hell, but we are […]

¬†With only a few more days left before we hit the road, it’s time to begin the work of preparing and packing the motorhome for our summer RV travels. Yesterday we moved the RV out of the storage lot and over to the big concrete apron in front of our house. We weren’t sure the […]

I had hoped to get some work done in my new book yesterday but it wasn’t in the cards. Instead, I spent most of the day playing catch up on the emails and messages and other things that I had put off while Travis and Geli were here. I must have had a dozen emails […]

The Best Laid Plans

Something I learned early in my Army days was that you can plan an operation down to the last detail and spend weeks talking strategy, but it can all go out the window the minute you put boots on the ground. That’s why you should always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. If you don’t do anything else today, be sure to tell your mom you love her. Mine has been gone a very long time and I wish she were still here so I could say those words to her. Here is a picture of Terry’s mom, […]

Making Friends

A topic that often comes up in the seminars I present on fulltiming at RV rallies and other events is making friends on the road. More than one new or wannabe RVer has told me that they wonder if they will have anybody to talk to when they are surrounded by strangers. I am always […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Terry and I started fulltiming in our mid-40s, a couple of people who are in that age range now wrote to ask me how we could afford to do that. They wanted to know if we sold a business or got rich in the stock market or something […]
