While there is no question that there are some clods in the world who don’t realize that their actions can impact others, I think overall most people are nice and don’t go out of their way to be obnoxious. Many times new RVers do things that irritates those around them only because they don’t understand […]

Note: This story was in the March-April, 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. You’ve been to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. You may have even been to Carhenge, near Alliance, Nebraska. But have you ever been to Florida’s Airstream Ranch? Situated on the south side of Interstate 4 in Dover, Florida, along with all of […]

I don’t believe that every RV salesman is a liar and a cheat. But the sad fact is that a lot of them are; enough to cast a wide shadow that, unfortunately, sometimes touches the whole industry. I’ve worked in sales over the years, everything from advertising to automobiles, and was successful at all of […]

I’ve had two different people e-mailing me in the last few days with questions about buying an RV for fulltime living. That’s not surprising, I get a lot of e-mails from people asking for advice, and I’m always happy to offer whatever I can, with the caveat that it’s free advice, and worth exactly what […]

Everybody is different and every RVer is different. That’s why they make so many different types and models of motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, Class B vans and other specialty vehicles for fulltime RV travel. When it comes to selecting an RV, you have the opportunity to choose a home on wheels that closely […]

We’re leaving Show Low this morning, and if all goes well, it should be a short driving day. We’re only going to Williams, a distance of about 175 miles. That’s an easy day of RV travel. Even with a stop at the Flying J in Winslow for fuel, we should only be on the road […]

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails hoping I would get well soon. I think I’ve finally turned the corner, and I may live after all. But there was a while there when only the hope of death was keeping me alive! Except for my allergy to onions and my bad back, […]

Sleeping The Day Away

Yesterday was a yucky day. I had not been feeling well the day before, and by bedtime the crud had really hit me. I was standing in the shower with the hot water running over me, and still shivering so hard my teeth were chattering. I drank some Alka Seltzer Nighttime Cold Formula, took a […]

Yesterday we felt like we were going in two directions at once. We had to drive into Orlando to pick up the pre-printed envelopes from the mail service, and even though it was only 27 miles, it took us well over an hour to get there. We left the Thousand Trails campground about 11:15 and […]
