While there is no question that there are some clods in the world who don’t realize that their actions can impact others, I think overall most people are nice and don’t go out of their way to be obnoxious. Many times new RVers do things that irritates those around them only because they don’t understand […]

Use That Generator!

Like most motorhome owners, we have a generator in our rig to supply electric power when we are not plugged into a campground’s power outlet. And like many new RVers who own generators, when we started fulltiming we abused our first motorhome’s gasoline powered Onan auxiliary power plant for a long time. Not by using […]

Where Will It End?

If you have been reading this blog or the Gypsy Journal for very long, you probably know I have a reputation for saying what’s on my mind, and I’ve been known to step on toes now and then. You may also know that I have said for a long time that the biggest problem with […]

That’s about all I can say for yesterday, and from what the weather report is saying, for most of the coming week here in Arizona. It started raining late Sunday night and pretty much never stopped all night long and all day yesterday. At least the wind, which continued to rock our coach all night, […]

Note: I’m too full of turkey and Miss Terry’s delicious homemade pecan pie to want to work, so I’m giving myself the night off and re-posting this blog from earlier this year. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them […]

A Soggy Day

It started raining hard in the wee hours of the morning yesterday and never stopped for more than a few minutes all day long. Many areas in central Florida were under flood watches, there were a few tornado warnings, and many areas got as much as seven inches of rain! Yes, SEVEN inches! That’s a […]

Moving Right Along

One of the things many new RVers seem to be baffled by is the care and treatment of their black tank and I’m not sure why. It’s really a relatively simple process but people make it difficult. There are only four things to remember, and if you remember them and don’t listen to all of […]

The question for today is, what’s the point of being an early bird if you don’t like worms? It makes no sense to me. But we were up before 7 a.m. again yesterday. And yes, I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again. Mornings suck. Now don’t all of you […]

We’re tired, and we’ve just gotten started! Yesterday was the first public day of the Hershey RV Show, and we spent eleven hours in our booth, greeting people, passing out sample copies of the Gypsy Journal, and selling a few subscriptions, books, and CDs. The main vendor area is on the floor of the Giant […]

A Lot To Learn

I always enjoy talking to new RVers or wannabes about the fulltime lifestyle, and hopefully, I can help them avoid some of the mistakes we made as greenhorns by sharing our experiences with them. But sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a brick wall, and I want to ask them “Do you want me […]
