Note: This is a repeat of a blog post from a couple of years ago that I felt needed to be seen again, since I get the same questions about these items on a regular basis. I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably […]

I am a big advocate for safety in the RV lifestyle and in everything we do. Sometimes I probably err on the side of caution, but so far I haven’t wrecked our motorhome and it hasn’t burned down with us in it, so I guess my method is working out. In the course of a […]

After reading my blog last week about mountain driving, several readers have asked me for tips about how to safely drive an RV in the mountains. I’m not a professional driver, but I’ve been driving a big rig all over the country for over fourteen years and haven’t wrecked one yet, so I’ll give you […]

When I was a younger person, I thought I would never get old, and didn’t want to. What fun could that be? Now that I have almost six decades under my belt, I realize just how dumb I was back then. This is absolutely the best time of my life. When I look at the […]

Sometimes it can be very frustrating trying to plan an RV rally. There are a thousand details that have to be handled behind the scenes, like pre-ordering enough donuts for everybody every morning, but not ordering too many and having them go to waste. Or making sure we have enough two-way radios for the parking […]

We’re getting down to the wire on our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally, and everybody on our advance team is busy, busy, busy! The rally starts a week from today, and we still have a lot to get done. Miss Terry and Barbara Westerfield have been locked to their computer keyboards, making lists, setting up registration […]

My pal Greg White and I have to stop spending so much time together. If you read my blog and Greg’s blog for yesterday, you might think you are experiencing déjà vu. We spent the day together, went to dinner together, and wrote almost the same blog, even down to the picture! We even used […]

Okay, I Give Up

Okay, I give up. It’s obvious that God doesn’t want me to watch the space shuttle being launched. Yesterday’s liftoff was canceled due to a fuel leak, and now NASA officials say it will be the end of November, at the earliest, before the shuttle will take off. We’ll be gone from the Space Coast […]

Good Rally News

I have some good news to report on the rally front. As I reported a few days ago, I really messed up when I was counting the number of vendors we would have at our Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally, because I did not take into account that several of those vendors wanted two or three […]

We really like Forest City, Iowa. It’s a charming little town that draws its lifeblood from the Winnebago factory, and just as folks in southern Texas love the Winter Texans who flock there every year, folks here love the “Bagos” who come to town every year for the Grand National rally. Everybody we have met […]
