I’ve been working hard to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, and when I knocked off about 9:30 last night I had about three pages left to go. I’ll finish it up today and print it out so Terry can give it a final proofreading, then I’ll make the corrections and get […]

New and wannabe fulltimers sometimes worry that they will be all alone out here on the road, surrounded by strangers. And then they are surprised at how many friends they quickly make and how often they run into them over and over again all over the country. We’ve had several friends visit us since we’ve […]

There’s a reason fulltime RVers write their plans in Jello. Because we never know when anything from weather, to a mechanical breakdown, a health issue, or simply a whim will find us making last minute changes. Isn’t it a wonderful lifestyle having that kind of freedom? Sometimes the Jello stirring is major and sometimes it’s […]

In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about all of the stinkbugs here at the Hershey Thousand Trails preserve, and I said a couple of things about them that apparently ticked them off. So they decided to take things to a new level, just to let me know who was boss. I was getting dressed, and about […]

Working Away

What can I say? That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing for the last few days, just working away on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Before I got started yesterday we spent some time visiting with Stu and Donna McNicol before they left the campground. We’re looking forward to catching up with them […]

Yesterday we spent part of the day unloading all of the stuff from our van that we used at the Hershey RV Show, and repacking it into the storage bays of our motorhome. It was a hot, humid day, and by the time we got done, we were both wringing wet. Back inside our Winnebago, […]

The Hershey RV Show finally ended yesterday, and it was the longest week of our lives. We are so glad that it is over! We have worked a lot of RV rallies over the years, but this was our first RV show. I’m pretty sure it will be our last, too. The good news is […]

The Last Day

Today is the last day of the Hershey RV Show, and it couldn’t end soon enough for us. We are worn out physically and mentally, and just want to go to bed and sleep for about 48 hours straight. All week long the show promoters and other vendors have been telling us “Just wait until […]

Okay, maybe I didn’t shave my legs, but I was still up before 7 a.m., and I even brushed my teeth! That has to count for something, doesn’t it? Why was I up at such an ungodly hour, you may ask? Because we’re working a vendor booth at the Hershey RV Show this week – […]

We’re tired, and we’ve just gotten started! Yesterday was the first public day of the Hershey RV Show, and we spent eleven hours in our booth, greeting people, passing out sample copies of the Gypsy Journal, and selling a few subscriptions, books, and CDs. The main vendor area is on the floor of the Giant […]
