There are some things that no RVer should be without, in my opinion. These include safety items like good fire extinguishers, an electrical management system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. They are more than just gadgets, they are essential equipment that can save your life and your rig. Something else I feel that you […]

I Googled It!

I’m not a smart guy, but that’s okay, because I know a lot of smart guys I can call when I have a problem, and that’s even better! It saves room in my brain for important stuff like where the best pizza and Chinese buffet are in town. Of course, when you bother people with […]

Terry has finished proofing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and today I’ll make the final corrections, and then upload it to our printer’s webserver. This is issue 84, which is our fourteen year anniversary issue. That’s a lot of miles of RV travel! I have some author friends whose output amazes me. Some […]

I Love My Techies!

When I was a teenage driver with my very first car, an old beater I think I paid $50 for, I spent more time trying to keep it running than I ever did behind the wheel. (Even back then, $50 didn’t get you much of a car.) And even back then, I could break something […]

We’re Getting There

Well, none of my friends or relatives called to tell me they had won the big Powerball drawing and wanted to split the money with me, so I spent yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, you heard that before. That’s pretty much all we’ve been doing this week. […]

Getting Some Work Done

I spent most of yesterday getting some work done. Actually, I got a lot of work done. At least by the end of the day, I felt like I had been working. Of course my work never involves any kind of physical labor if there is any way at all to avoid it. And since […]

We have been busy little bees here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio as we get ready for our Gypsy Journal Rally. But we are getting a lot accomplished and things are moving right along. I reported a couple days ago that there had been a change in fairgrounds management and we were […]

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, whether you are a mechanic, a carpenter, or a plumber, you need the best tools you can get your hands on to do your job. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I am not allowed to touch any kind of tool you can buy at […]

This blog is going to make my buddy Greg White very happy. When we were shopping for new computers a while back, and considering the Apple products, Greg told me that they are not as failsafe and perfect as many Apple owners would have you believe and we would have problems with them, too. Greg […]

They Found Big Lake!

As I reported in yesterday’s blog, we dropped my iMac computer off at the Apple Store in Mishawaka on Friday afternoon and I was told that the repairs could take two to three weeks. But Daniel Davis, the repair tech, said he would do his best to expedite things. And expedite he did! At 11:30 […]
