The combined FMCA GLAMARAMA/Fleetwood rally is going on at the fairgrounds in Goshen and Greg and Jan wanted to check it out so we rode down there with them yesterday morning. I don’t think we’ve ever been to a rally that we weren’t putting on or working as vendors, so it felt kind of strange. […]

After a couple of unexpected delays, Terry’s new Splendide washer/dryer combo was delivered yesterday afternoon. She is officially a happy camper! And just in time too! Another day and I would have been reduced to going commando! Trust me, nobody wanted to see that happen. After getting the old unit out, we weren’t too sure […]

I Broke It!

Anybody who knows me well knows that I can keep a platoon of mechanics and handymen busy with all of the things I mess up in the course of a day. But yesterday I impressed even myself. Just by joining RVillage, the great new social network for RVers, I crashed the whole thing! Call me […]

RVs are pulling into Elkhart Campground one after another as weekend warriors arrive to kick off the season. For the next three months or so every campground and RV park in the country will be full of campers, kids, barking dogs and smoky campfires. You gotta love summer, right? Hey, it’s all part of the […]

We Survived The Storm

Severe storms were predicted for the Elkhart area Tuesday night, with winds up to 60 MPH, lightning, rain and hail. We got the rain, lots of thunder and lighting, and some hail, but fortunately it wasn’t nearly as bad as predicted. But it sure was a noisy night that made sleeping difficult for a lot […]

Oh what a difference a few days make! A week ago it looked and felt like a winter landscape here in northern Indiana. The sky was dark with clouds, the trees were bare, and we were running our RV’s furnace to keep warm. Yesterday it was nice enough for short sleeves, folks were out walking […]

Today’s The Day!

Today’s the day I kick off my first day-long self-publishing workshop and I must admit to being a bit nervous. I’ve presented hundreds of seminars over the years on everything from working on the road to how to buy an RV to seminars on self-publishing. But this is the first time I’ve attempted a day-long […]

It Was A Good Week

We had a very good week at the Escapees Escapade rally this past week, in spite of the pouring rain, frigid temperatures, wind, and mud. Yeah, it was typical RV rally weather. Terry and I enjoyed seeing so many old and new friends who stopped by our vendor booth.   Here we have a combination […]

My Nose Hurts!

No, I didn’t stick it where it doesn’t belong and get it broken (again), it’s just sore from being held to the grindstone so much lately! I really like my job, but I think I need a day off. With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, I spent most of yesterday working on […]

Thank you all for your wonderful e-mails and blog comments about our anniversary yesterday. They are very much appreciated. Unfortunately, we are in the process of consolidating all of our various websites and blogs into one master account, and in the process it looks like the comments may have disappeared. Chris Guld  from Geeks on […]
