Most of yesterday was spent getting the initial 5,000 mile oil change and check-up on our Pacifica, then running some errands in Daytona Beach, and stopping for dinner at Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet, the best Chinese buffet we have found in the area. So rather than bore you with the details of all of […]

When I was a kid I hated taking a nap. Hated it! There was too much going on to waste time napping. I could think of a hundred reasons why I shouldn’t be taking a nap, and my mom wouldn’t buy any of them. I’d get up, she’d make me go lie back down, I’d […]

Good Deal Or Ripoff?

One reason that we don’t have very much advertising from the RV industry in the Gypsy Journal is because I have never made it a secret that a lot of what is being made and sold is junk, and that poor service after the sale seems to be the norm with many companies. In fact, […]

There has been a lot of talk about the recent brawl at the Cottonwood, Arizona WalMart, where a family living in a vehicle attacked a store employee and then police officers who responded to the store’s calls for help. By the time it was over, a policeman had been shot, one of the suspects was […]

Even though it was still bloody hot yesterday we had cabin fever and needed to get out of the motorhome for a while. So we took a road trip about 55 miles south to Reedville, a tiny little fishing town on the Chesapeake Bay whose claim to fame is that it is second only to […]

Except for a quick trip to the dumpster I haven’t left the motorhome. Actually, I pretty much haven’t left my desk. But the good news is that I’ve only got a little over three pages left to go on the new issue of the paper. That trip to the dumpster was enough. There are a […]

I’ve been working hard to finish my new Big Lake book, so instead of boring you with the details of that, today I thought I’d share some RV goodies that we find useful and add to our comfort and safety level. Strike-Hold: We discovered this amazing product on Ken and Marilyn Murphy’s vendor table at […]

We spent the day at home yesterday, and except for a half hour or so I spent outside cleaning some kind of sticky road goop off the side of our Explorer, we never left the motorhome. But we both managed to keep busy. Terry spent most of the day figuring out how to warp her […]

Cool It!

In June Terry and I will begin our fifteenth year of fulltime RVing, and we love it just as much now as we did the day we drove away from our old hometown. That means that we have been living this wonderful lifestyle for almost 1/4 of our lives! And while we may not be […]

I didn’t hear the rock band Kansas singing their hit song Dust in the Wind, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot of it blowing around the last couple of days. A lot of it! The high winds we had on Monday subsided a little bit yesterday, but there were still plenty of […]
