We got an unexpected bonus when we visited Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Washington state and discovered one of America’s oldest operating airfields adjacent to the old fur trading outpost. The past met the future at Vancouver Barracks on September, 19, 1905, when Lincoln Beachey took off from the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, […]

There are a lot of interesting attractions and museums along the Oregon and Washington coasts, but in my opinion, the best of them all is the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon. The museum specializes in collecting and exhibiting maritime artifacts from the Columbia River and the Pacific Northwest. The Museum, which opened in […]

I get a lot of email every day, and a lot of those emails are from people who have questions about the RV lifestyle. What kind of RV should I buy? Is gas or diesel better in a motorhome? How do I get mail? What state should I choose for my legal domicile? I get […]

If you are hanging out on the Texas Gulf Coast right now you should probably either hit the road or batten down the hatches because you’re gonna get wet! The weatherman here in Florida says tropical depression Harvey is headed toward the Texas coast and very likely will increase in strength before it gets there […]

If you are a Gypsy Journal subscriber, check your e-mail.

And that’s what it started doing yesterday morning and continued all day and all night. The weather report said we could expect as much as three inches to come down yesterday here in northern Indiana, and the 10 p.m. news last night said some areas in the region got five inches, and it was still […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I posted a link to a story about a man who had a bunch of explosives in his motorhome at an RV park in Arizona, I got four emails from people who wanted to know how they could avoid a situation like that. I have no idea. I’ve found […]

That’s the soundtrack here in northern Indiana this weekend. Elkhart is the home of the recreational vehicle industry, and while I don’t know how all of that business is doing, I’m pretty sure the people selling fireworks are making a killing. I was out by the dog run here at Elkhart Campground and somebody was […]

I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for you. I’m going to die. And so are you. And your best friend, and your spouse, and sadly, even your kids. It’s going to happen sooner or later. We can’t avoid it. But we can make the most of whatever time we have left here on earth. […]
