With all the paperwork signed for putting our Winnebago motorhome on consignment at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, we were ready to get out of Dodge. Well, at least out of Houston. The directions we had been given to come to PPL had taken us into town on Interstate10 to the Interstate 610 Loop and then south […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. Here are some of the latest. Q. Instead of selling your RV, have you considered donating it to a charity and taking […]

Nobody really knows where Hurricane Irma is headed, but things aren’t looking good for Florida. As of last night they said there is a very good chance it would come up the east coastline, which puts us right in its path. We had planned on leaving Saturday to go up to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for my […]

Thank you to everybody that sent emails or messages expressing concern for our safety with Hurricane Irma looking like it will impact Florida. At this point, nobody really knows where it’s going to go. Depending on which weather map you want to believe, it could be a real problem or it could miss us completely. […]

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]

Terry and I seldom go anywhere on holiday weekends, just to avoid the traffic and the crowds. But this weekend I think we’re going to take it a step further and turn off the telephones, keep the blinds closed, and hibernate until Tuesday, because both of us are just so darn tired. As most of […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after the air conditioning repair company we called in July never got back to us with an estimate for a new unit, the folks we had come out to get it running again on Tuesday followed through and gave us not one, but three estimates on the spot. That […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. Q.

Miss Terry and I had a busy weekend and we got a lot accomplished. In yesterday’s blog I told you about our Saturday trip down to Winter Springs to visit Kellyco, the metal detecting store, and shared some pictures of the many recovered treasures they have on display. But before we went there, we pulled […]

Back in June when we broke down in Mobile, Alabama and spent twelve hours parked on the shoulder of Interstate 10 waiting for a tow truck, I thought I had won the prize for the worst breakdown/towing story in the history of RVing. But that was before my buddy Greg White called me yesterday for […]
