Sometimes I get questions about our weekly free drawings so I thought I would answer some of them here today. Quite a few people want to know how I pick the winners every week and how they can increase their chances of winning. I don’t pick the winners. I use a free website called Random.org […]

Wow, it’s over already? That was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2016 like for us? We started the year in Tucson, Arizona, where I was getting follow-up treatment at the VA hospital for a medical issue that […]

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I used to go to family reunions just to pick up girls. But hey, if it happens it happens, right? I know, you’re asking yourself what the heck this has to do with RVing but trust me, I’ll get there. And even if I don’t, remember that […]

Well, I Did It!

Okay, call me a liar. I said I wasn’t going to do it, and I really meant it. I had no intention of going into any big box store until after the holidays. I don’t tolerate the crowds very well and the commercialism turns me off. But I did it. At least I’ve got a […]

I got a lot of very good response to yesterday’s blog post, If I Had It To Do Over. Thank you to everybody who posted comments in the blog, sent me emails, or messages through Facebook about it. It always makes me feel good when I know I’m helping other people out, and hopefully helping […]

If I Had It To Do Over

How many times have you heard someone say, “If I had it to do over, I sure would do things differently.” Yes, hindsight is always 20/20, but we make our choices and live with them. If they turn out not to be the best choices, hopefully we learn from them. My father used to always […]

We were awake by 8:30 yesterday morning and spent the day piddling around here at the house, taking care of some little things we wanted to get done. Two things have been irritations for me since we bought our used F-150 pickup. One was that the windshield, in fact all the glass, had a film […]

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 […]

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 […]

An Easy Day

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]
