Yesterday was a gray, rainy day and there wasn’t much going on at the RV park except for people walking their dogs. I have owned a dog most of my life and I love them, but every time I see people out in the rain with a dog sniffing every blade of grass deciding where […]

A few days ago I told you about an e-mail I got from a 76 year old woman who is a regular blog reader who “ran away from home” at age 76 and is spending her first winter as a solo RV snowbird. This was over the objections of her adult children, who think she […]

Frugal Vs Foolish

Is it worth it? I can’t tell you how many times I get this question from both new and experienced RVers. Our tires are eight years old but have lots of tread left and don’t have any cracks. Is it really worth buying new tires? Are the expensive fire extinguishers, refrigerator compartment, or engine compartment […]

No two RVers are the same. Some of us are fulltimers, some are snowbirds,and some are weekend warriors. Some of us like the wide open spaces, while others prefer state parks, or RV resorts with full amenities. But no matter how we travel in our RVs, or where we go with them, we all have […]

Our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally doesn’t even start until Sunday, when we start parking our Early Birds, but I’m already worn out. Miss Terry, Tom and Barb Westerfield, and Greg and Jan White have been doing most of the work, so I don’t know why I’m the one who is so tired. Yes, it does […]

Several readers have written to ask why we didn’t visit Colonial Williamsburg during our recent trip to Virginia, suggesting that it would be a good story for the Gypsy Journal. We have also had e-mails from readers in the last couple of weeks wanting to know why we didn’t tour this place or that place […]

My annual checkup at the V.A. hospital here in Lexington, Kentucky was scheduled for 10 a.m. yesterday, but we arrived a half hour early, and within about 5 minutes I was in an exam room where a nurse took my vitals, and then she took me in to see my doctor. He read over my […]

The Flying J at at Catlettsburg, Kentucky had several dedicated RV parking sites, but we were the only RV there Saturday night, which is a first for us. Usually Flying Js fill up with RVs early and they stay overnight, taking advantage of the company’s RV friendly hospitality. I don’t drink coffee because it might […]

Marathon Driving

Yesterday was another one of those marathon driving days that RVers are not supposed to do, but that we find ourselves doing quite often. We do this sometimes when we have to get from Point A to Point B, and don’t have time to stop and play along the way. It’s not our preferred mode […]
