With the season upon us, I thought this would be a good time to revisit some thoughts I have shared in the past on popular snowbirds roosts that we and other RVers seek out when the weather up north starts to get cold. One of the first things new snowbirds have to learn is that […]

There’s a saying in the RV world that if you don’t like the neighbors, you can just move. So we did! Actually our neighbors were fine people, they were just parked too close to us. But that wasn’t their fault, the RV sites in some parts of the A section at the Orlando Thousand Trails […]

Well That Was Quick!

I said in yesterday’s blog that the power was supposed to be out for several hours here at the Orlando Thousand Trails yesterday, so I wasn’t sure how much work I would get done on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But as it turned out, about 3 PM two work trucks pulled up […]

We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family. I hope 2013 is filled with much love, joy, and prosperity for all of you. I have to tell you that I’m very proud of myself. I have not had a drink in over 35 years, but last night I went out to a party […]

Even though we’re far south of where Hurricane Sandy came ashore, and have had pretty good weather since we’ve been here, it took a turn for the worse yesterday. The wind blew hard most of the day and the temperature dropped quite a bit. I don’t think the high got much over 60° and the […]

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope this year brings you much love, much adventure, much joy, good health, and prosperity. For us, the year has just started, and we’ve already shaken up the Jello that every fulltimer writes their plans in. We currently have a two week reservation at the Orlando Thousand Trails, starting on […]

Why is it that if I goof off for just one day, I’m suddenly two or three days behind schedule? How does that happen? So I spent yesterday making up for lost time. I started putting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal together as soon as I got up, and pretty much stayed at […]

We are into our annual slowdown in our printing schedule. We try to have each issue of the Gypsy Journal printed and mailed by the middle of the month preceding the issue date, and five issues a year, we are usually able to meet that deadline. But every year, when it’s time to print the […]

When we checked into the Peace River NACO campground on Sunday the office was closed, so the ranger said to go up to the office anytime Monday morning and pay for our stay. Apparently “anytime” is first thing in the morning, because at 10 a.m. somebody was knocking on our door. Since we seldom get […]
