Most of my time lately has been spent working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal so I can get it sent out to our subscribers on time. But I had to put that aside yesterday for a Daytona day. I had a follow-up appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach, and […]

Note: This story appeared in the March-April 2015 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Who hasn’t dreamed of living in a rustic log cabin perched on the shore of a clear, cold mountain lake at one time or another? It sounds almost as much fun as living in an RV, doesn’t it? While touring St. Augustine, […]

When I logged onto my computer yesterday morning I was greeted by three messages from readers who also read my buddy Greg White’s daily blog, Our RV Adventures, wanting to know if Greg was okay because they could not access his blog. Two of them just said there was no blog, while the third said […]

Yesterday was a busy day at home, and I got quite a bit accomplished. The first order of business was to deal with a backlog of emails that piled up while I was busy getting registered at the Veterans Administration medical clinic in Daytona Beach on Tuesday. And as always, the first thing I did […]

If you live close to the ocean, rust is a fact of life. And you don’t have to get something wet for it to be susceptible. It’s amazing how much damage the salt air can do to metal if you don’t keep up with maintenance. One of the big selling points when we bought our […]

I can always trust my blog readers to set me straight when I make a mistake. Such was the case in yesterday’s blog, when I showed a picture of a Morris Minor pickup truck that I said someone had made from a car. Wayne Shunamon posted a comment saying that Morris Minor did indeed build […]
