In yesterday’s blog, when I talked about RV fire extinguishers I recommend my friend Mac McCoy, the world’s acknowledged RV fire safety expert, and included a link to his website. As it turns out, I goofed. When Mac and I talked a few weeks ago, he told me that he was planning to pull the […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog post from a couple of years ago that I felt needed to be seen again, since I get the same questions about these items on a regular basis. I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably […]

After reading my blog about all the fun we are missing at the Escapees RV Club‘s Escapade rally, which is going on in Tucson this week, I got emails from two different people who told me they had heard a rumor that I had been fired from the Escapade staff and that we are no […]

I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably err on the side of caution, but so far I haven’t wrecked our motorhome and it hasn’t burned down with us in it, so I guess my method is working out. In the course of a […]

I give up! I’m not even going to whine and snivel about the cold anymore. It doesn’t do a bit of good anyway. I’m just going to buy me a team of huskies, hook them to the front end of my motorhome, and go on down the road. God seems to want me to be […]

The wind has not let up a bit here in northern Arizona, and as predicted, a cold front has moved in and dropped the temperatures quite a bit. The sky is very gray, and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it starts snowing! I talked to my buddy Mac McCoy from Fire and Life […]

Yesterday morning Terry’s parents, Pete and Bess Weber, stopped by to visit on their way home from church. Pete had only seen our Winnebago once, a few evenings earlier, but it was after dark, and he couldn’t see much of the outside. So he spent some time walking around checking it out before coming inside, […]

It figures. We left cold, rainy Alabama and went to Texas, where it was just as cold and rainy. So we left there and came to Arizona, where it was in the 70s, with plenty of sunshine. So guess what the weatherman says we can expect this coming week? Temperatures in the low 60s and […]

I spent most of yesterday updating our Gypsy Journal website and working on details for our upcoming Gypsy Gathering rally March 8-12 in Yuma, Arizona. As of now, we already have about 100 RVs registered, and at past rallies, most of the registrations come in during the last three weeks. So I think we’re going […]

We spent most of the last couple of days wrapping up the paperwork from our recent Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally, and logging in all of the subscriptions we sold there. At each of our rallies, we ask attendees to complete a feedback form, telling us not only what we did right, but what we could […]
