Note: I have shared these tips in the Gypsy Journal and at the seminars I present at RV rallies, and thought my blog readers might find them useful as well. Spend enough time behind the wheel of a motorhome or dragging a fifth wheel or travel trailer around the country and you’ll eventually pick up a […]

For the last few days I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages from folks that are at the Escapees Escapade RV rally in Essex Junction, Vermont, saying how much they miss us and wish we were there. We miss all of you, too, and we are sorry we couldn’t make it. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets […]

Time To Simplify

I’ve been vexed by technical gremlins the last few days and it’s time to simplify. I’m about to get a map, a compass, and a tire pressure gauge and throw a whole bunch of electronic gadgets away.

I’ve been in love with maps since I was a little kid. I remember that my dad always kept half a dozen gas station roadmaps in the glove compartment of his car and I would spend a lot of time looking at them, reading strange names of far off exciting places like Des Moines, Wichita, […]

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

With Christmas less than a week away, I thought I’d make a few last minute gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. I use, or have used, all of the products myself. Many of these items were listed in a blog I wrote several years ago, […]

Yesterday we drove back down to the TechnoGeek Learning Rally at Paradise Oaks RV Resort in Bushnell, arriving just as they were beginning their afternoon sessions. The first class was on smartphones, and Chris and Jim Guld covered both Android and iPhone operating systems, with lots of tips and hints about how to get the […]
