I received an email the other day from someone telling me that they had reservations at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve for two weeks this month, but now they’re thinking about canceling them because they are worried about the mass shooting that happened there earlier this month. They asked me if I thought it […]

Plugging Away At It

We always try to stay at home and off the crowded streets and highways on holiday weekends, which is what we have been doing. Except for a trip to the dumpster I didn’t leave the motorhome all day yesterday. I spent most of the time plugging away at the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, […]

No, I’m not talking about those folks in Washington who are busy taking bribes and shafting all of us, though you shouldn’t trust them either. But I’ll get to all of that in a moment. After we’ve been sitting still for a while, we never seem to sleep well the night before we begin a […]

Especially in the lives of fulltime RVers. If you’re not familiar with the term, we always say that our schedules are written in Jello and we never know when something will come up to change our plans at the last minute. We’re in Jello mode right now. From here, we had planned to go over […]

That’s the great thing about the fulltime RV lifestyle, our plans are usually written in Jello. However, we woke up yesterday morning to discover that the power […]

We had a lot of fun yesterday in Las Vegas, and didn’t spend a lot of money to do so. Yes, you can have fun in Sin City on the cheap! The first order of business was to sleep in, making up for the rest we missed on our trip to Los Angeles. Then we […]

Yesterday was a day when I should have stayed in bed. I went outside to dump our black tank, and because the RV sites here at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve are so tight, I had to wiggle my chubby butt between a picnic table and the side of our RV. Then I discovered […]

Lately, I’ve been feeling like a space cadet, and for the first time in my long career as a newspaperman, author, and blogger, I am having trouble coming up with something to write about. That never happens to me. I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I can always think of something to write […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we are at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve, a blog reader said that they had only been here once, and left after two days because the RV sites are crammed in so close together, and this isn’t their idea of camping. There is no question that this […]
