My new book, Big Lake Tragedy, went live on Tuesday, and since then most of my time has been occupied on working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. And I’m making some headway. When I knocked off last night about 8 PM, I had 15 pages done out of a total of 44. […]

Get Out Of Dodge

Watching news coverage of the devastation along the Texas Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey is personal to us. Before we settled on Florida, we looked long and hard at the area around Rockport and Aransas Pass, which was in the predicted direct path of the hurricane’s landfall. They are charming little towns with lots of […]

When we tell people that we are fulltime RVers, one question they frequently ask us is what is our favorite place in the country. That’s like asking a parent which child is their favorite. We have so many “favorites” that I could never choose just one. One winter Terry and I made our first visit […]

Note: This is an update on a blog about hanging up the keys that first ran in the blog in November, 2010. The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter […]

I got an e-mail yesterday evening from some new fulltimers who are hitting the road the day after Christmas, asking me for suggestions on snowbird roosts. They have been following the blog for some time now and were surprised that it can get down into the 30s here in Florida during the wintertime. They wrote […]

We were having dinner with RVing friends Stu and Donna McNicol and Greg and Jan White, and during our conversation the names of other fulltimers we knew came up several times. Later, driving home from the restaurant, Jan said that it was surprising how many people we knew in common. That’s one of the many […]

It was hard to say goodbye to Greg and Jan White yesterday but we had places to go and people to see, so it was time to hit the road. The good news is, it will only be a month or so before we join up with them again at our Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally […]

It’s Been Fun

We have had a wonderful time visiting with Greg and Jan here at Galveston Bay RV Resort. But alas, it’s time to move on! There are still a lot of miles between us and Arizona and we have some stops to make along the way. Yesterday started with lunch at King Food, a wonderful Chinese […]

Every time we come back to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona to visit my daughter Tiffany and her family, poor Terry suffers from terrible allergies. When we lived here it wasn’t as much of a problem, but having been gone for almost eleven years, she has lost  whatever immunity she had to the […]

One of the great things about the RV lifestyle is having the opportunity to eat so many different kinds of food in so many different places. Whenever we can, we pass up the chain restaurants in favor of the local fare. Let’s face it, a Grand Slam breakfast is going to taste the same, whether […]
