We left the Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida a little before 10 a.m. yesterday for the 280 mile trip back to the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange. The trip would not be uneventful. When people ask me about safety in an RV, I always tell them that you are much more likely […]

It’s A Wet Heat

Terry and I both spent many years living in the desert of Arizona before we moved up to the White Mountains, which was prior to our becoming fulltime RVers. And anybody who has ever been there knows that it gets terribly hot for months on end in the late spring, all summer long, and into […]

We left Kentucky Horse Park Campground in Lexington, Kentucky at 10 o’clock yesterday morning under cloudy skies. When we’ve been there before we have always pulled into one of the two dump stations to hook the Explorer up to the back of the motorhome. But we’ve never left there on a Sunday before. Each dump station […]

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]

When we arrived at Elkhart Campground in early June we were told that a big RV rally was scheduled for the third week of August and the entire place was sold out. That wasn’t a problem for us because whenever were in this part of the country we always come up to Muskegon, Michigan to […]

RVers are adventurous people, there’s no question about that. After all, they’re willing to jump into a box made of metal or fiberglass and take off down the highway spending days, weeks, months, or even years in strange places, surrounded by people they’ve never seen before. They don’t let little things like bad weather, rough […]

The Escapees RV Club‘s 56th Escapade rally will be held July 24- 29 in Essex Junction, Vermont, and like all Escapees events, it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m not sure of the exact schedule yet, but I’ll be presenting several seminars at the rally and they will have a full lineup of […]

Note: This article first appeared in the March-April 2005 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Just minutes from all of the tourist hubbub of busy St. Augustine, Florida we discovered a tranquil hideout with miles of beautiful beaches to explore, swimming, fishing, nature trails, comfortable campsites, and a chance to learn a little bit about Florida’s […]

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 […]
