We are spending the week in Tuscaloosa, Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, and we’re taking advantage of every moment we can to be with them. So I’m going to be slow to respond to emails and Facebook messages all week. If it’s something important I will try to reply as soon […]

One of the nice perks of publishing the Gypsy Journal RV newspaper and this RV blog is that we get to test a lot of neat RV accessories and gadgets when something new or updated hits the market. Over the years we’ve been able to evaluate everything from cordless vacuum cleaners to inverters, GPS units, waterless […]

I like to save a buck as much as the next guy, and anytime I can get a discount on something I’m happy to do so. But I also realize that a business has to make a profit to keep its doors open. But for some reason, a lot of RVers I hear from don’t […]

You will get bad reviews, and occasionally even e-mails telling you why they don’t like your work. This can be a positive if they are legitimate complaints that […]

Yesterday was another busy day here at the Gypsy Journal rally, the last full day of seminars and activities. As usual, Miss Terry was up by 5 AM so she could get down to the Junior Fair Building to make sure that morning coffee and donuts went off without a hitch. Lazy me, I finally […]

It feels like Terry and I have been going in seven directions at once, greeting and visiting with rally attendees and doing everything else that is involved in running an RV rally. Yesterday Terry was up at 5 AM and out the door an hour later to get the coffee made and get her donut […]

Our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally begins one week from today, and it’s time to get busy wrapping up all the last-minute details before the event starts. Fortunately for Terry and me, we have a lot of help here to get the job done. Early yesterday afternoon, Mike and Elaine Loscher arrived at the fairgrounds and […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Apache Junction, and it was a busy one, as many of our days have been lately, and as they will be for the next several weeks. Terry’s sister Lisa dropped by during the morning for a last visit with us. We probably won’t see Lisa again until next […]
