We won’t be moving into our new house for a few days yet because the previous owners had a delay in closing on their new home due to Hurricane Matthew. Rather than have them move everything into a storage unit, and then have to move it a second time, we told them we were no […]

Yesterday it was time to say goodbye to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, known simply as TTO to Thousand Trails members who frequent this huge campground in central Florida. It’s become almost a second home to us; this was our second two-week stay this winter, and when we are in Florida we have stayed several […]

I had pretty much been chained to my desk for three days getting my new Big Lake mystery novel done. And even though I wanted to finish the read-through before I handed it off to Miss Terry so she could start editing and proofing it, we both really needed a day off. So yesterday we […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter […]

I’ve had e-mails from three or four RVers in the last week or so asking about how to find affordable RV sites in Florida for next winter. One couple said they had just returned to Indiana after spending four months in a very nice RV Park in the Tampa area, but the cost was over […]

In a blog post back in December, I mentioned the Amazon Prime program, which my buddy Greg White turned us on to. The program gives special discounts on Amazon purchases and free two-day shipping on anything stocked and sold by Amazon. While it costs about $80 a year, the savings quickly added up and it […]

It was hard to say goodbye to Greg and Jan White yesterday but we had places to go and people to see, so it was time to hit the road. The good news is, it will only be a month or so before we join up with them again at our Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally […]

Falling Into A Routine

I was talking to a friend yesterday, and the subject of our winter travel plans came up. I always say that our plans are set in Jello, because we never know when something may come up, or we’ll just get bored with what we’re doing, and shake up the Jello and take off an entirely […]

The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter the lifestyle knowing that they will only be traveling for a certain amount of time before they settle down, while others hope […]

We have been sitting still way too long, and Terry and I are both itching to get back on the road and see some new places and new faces. Yesterday I finished putting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal together, and once I got the hang of InDesign, our new page layout software, it […]
