Much of the last week has been spent getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to go to press. I finished it yesterday afternoon and then Terry spent several hours proofing it before I uploaded it to our printer’s web server. It always feels good to get another issue behind us. This is […]

Some RVers like to play golf, some enjoy pickleball, and others are never happier than when they’re lounging around a campground swimming pool. For Terry and me, give us a back road to drive and no eighteen wheelers crawling up our rear bumper and we’re as happy as clams. (Are clams really all that happy? […]

Don’t ask me how I did it, but somehow, I managed to misplace an entire day! How does one do that? I knew that our two weeks at the Orlando Thousand Trail preserve was up on the 28th and we’d be leaving for two weeks. But for some reason, all along I thought the 28th […]

Why is it that if I goof off for just one day, I’m suddenly two or three days behind schedule? How does that happen? So I spent yesterday making up for lost time. I started putting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal together as soon as I got up, and pretty much stayed at […]

We’ve had all the fun we can have, or at least all the fun we have time to have, and today we plan to hit the road. There were a lot of things that we didn’t get done while we’ve been here in Florida, but we have to be in Yuma in mid-February to get […]

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails hoping I would get well soon. I think I’ve finally turned the corner, and I may live after all. But there was a while there when only the hope of death was keeping me alive! Except for my allergy to onions and my bad back, […]

My wife is a very hard woman to shop for, because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a […]

Miss Terry has said that she wants to see if a Sea Eagle inflatable kayak might suit her needs as a replacement for her heavy Manta Ray, but she didn’t want something as big as my PaddleSki 435. Tim Ryerson from Inflatable Boats 4 Less has suggested one of their sporty Fast Track kayaks for […]

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that I was considering an inflatable kayak as a replacement for my hard sided Native Watercraft Manta Ray, and I got a lot of feedback comments from blog readers. Some shared their experiences with inflatable kayaks, and a surprising number said that they too have thought about an […]

None of us like wasting money, and in today’s economy, a lot of people are finding ways to save every penny they can. But when does thrift become less advantageous than the effort or inconvenience required to achieve it? One example is an RVer I know who never purchases fuel at stations near an interstate […]
