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, […]

Living in an RV means living a somewhat minimalist lifestyle if for no other reason than that there is only so much room available, and you always have to be aware of how anything you bring in affects your overall cargo carrying capacity. So there are some things many fulltimers do without. One of them […]

Living and traveling fulltime in an RV is always an adventure. Most of those adventures are a lot of fun and our memory banks are stuffed with wonderful experiences, from listening to coyotes singing as we fell asleep while boondocking in the Arizona desert, to watching whales swimming in Depoe Bay, Oregon, walking on the […]

Living and traveling in an RV fulltime, you just never know how many interesting places you’ll discover, and how many more you drive right on past without even knowing they are there. It’s amazing what you can find with just a couple of quick Internet searches. A good example is Manasota Memorial Park, a cemetery […]

Almost 18 years ago Terry and I honeymooned in Morro Bay, California and fell in love with the charming small town on California’s Central Coast. So on our trip south from Oregon we built time into our schedule for another visit. The town takes its name from 581 foot tall Morro Rock, the imposing monolith […]

Sometimes it seems like there’s just one problem after another when you live in an RV. Morry Bernard from West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair fixed our original water leak, and then another one that popped up, and now our Atwood water heater is on the fritz. When I took my shower Friday night […]

Wherever you are today and whoever you are sharing the holiday with, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you take a few moments to consider all we have to be thankful for. Don’t just give it a passing thought, think about it. With all of our problems, we live in the greatest […]

That’s been my routine for the last few days and I don’t see it ending anytime soon, based upon the way I feel. But believe me, I’m more than ready for it to be over. And worse, Miss Terry now has a scratchy throat and has sneezed a few times. I really hope she’s not […]

An idling diesel engine woke me up about 7 yesterday morning, and though I tried to roll over and get back to sleep it kept running for a long time before finally pulling out. I guess the guy owns stock in an oil company and didn’t mind sitting there burning up money. We got up […]

Thank you all for your e-mail and messages of support. I’m not overly worried about the skin cancer thing at this point; it is what it is. The folks at the V.A. have always taken very good care of me. My only concern is that cancer has claimed several members of my family, including my […]
