In a Q&A blog post a while back, somebody asked if there was any place that Terry and I wanted to visit while we were fulltiming but never managed to get to. As I said then, we crossed every place off of our bucket list that we wanted to see. A couple of days later […]

How Did I Do That?

Since this is Sunday, normally I would include something in today’s blog telling you that it is your last chance to enter our weekly Free Drawing and that the winner would be drawn this evening. But somehow I managed to completely forget about the drawing this week. They usually begin on Thursday and run through […]

It Could Be Worse

After a couple of weeks of temperatures in the mid-80s, we’ve got a cold front coming our way and yesterday only got up to 72°. At 11:30 last night the temperature was 17° colder than it was at the same time the night before, and the weatherman says we will be in the 60s for […]

Note: This story is from my book Highway History And Back Road Mystery  We’ve all heard the tale of Paul Revere, the brave Boston silversmith whose midnight ride alerted patriots that “the British are coming!” The lesser known part of that story is that Paul Revere was actually captured before he completed his mission and two other […]

RVing With A Goal

Note: The blog is based upon the seminar by the same name that I present at RV rallies around the country. Why do you RV? To visit friends and family in far off places? To have your own mobile lodging when you visit theme parks or natural attractions? To have a way to escape cold […]

It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]

And A Pier Too!

I think all fulltime RVers occasionally visit a place and think, “Hmmm… if we ever hang up the keys…” In our 15+ years on the road, Terry and I have found three such places; the Rockport-Port Aransas, Texas area; Titusville, Florida; and now St. Augustine. We’re nowhere close to that point in our lives yet, […]

After reading my year end blog the other day, I got an e-mail from a very nice man who said he and his wife would love to see some of the places we have visited, but that their fulltiming is limited to summers in the Midwest and Florida in the wintertime because their adult kids […]

We’re Getting There

Well, none of my friends or relatives called to tell me they had won the big Powerball drawing and wanted to split the money with me, so I spent yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, you heard that before. That’s pretty much all we’ve been doing this week. […]

A Mystical Day

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, to make the 90 minute drive south to Mystic Seaport, Connecticut. This was one place I have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember, and I’m so happy we finally got there. If you haven’t been to Mystic Seaport, it is a […]
