The Foothills area is located on the east side of Yuma and is a huge area divided up into private lots, most of which have at least two RV hookups. Thousands of RVers winter here, either on their own lots or on lots they rent by the week, month or season. Lots rent anywhere from […]

I have a reputation for bringing bad weather with me wherever I go, and I’ve done it again. I broke Yuma. And this isn’t the first time I’ve done it. A couple of years ago we were holding one of our Gypsy Journal rallies at the fairgrounds here, and the city got more than its […]

How Much Do You Have?

A reader who is considering fulltiming wrote yesterday to ask me if the RV lifestyle is more or less expensive than living in a traditional house. I was reminded of an interview I did for MSNBC several years ago, when they asked me how much it cost to fulltime. I said that it costs as […]

After sad goodbyes and lots of hugs with Greg and Jan, we pulled out of Hardeeville RV Park at 10 AM yesterday morning, headed for Florida. The weather report predicted winds picking up in the afternoon, but since we only had a four hour run to St. Augustine we decided to go for it. Within […]

One thing many new fulltimers and extended time RV travelers are surprised to discover is that they do not have to stay in an RV park every night. There are many alternatives to a traditional campground, and a lot of them are free, or almost free. Or at least a lot less expensive than a […]

In spite of the fact that it rained hard all night Sunday night and all day Monday, after I announced in yesterday’s blog that the fairgrounds manager said that any Passport America or Good Sam Club members who are coming to our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally  here in Celina can come in any time, for […]

Time has flown by this week, and we have not accomplished very much, even though we had the best of intentions. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we had a succession of visitors, and it was like a big family reunion. It has been a lot of fun, but not very productive. Wednesday I was standing in […]

The Elks lodge here in Bremerton is located a couple of blocks off a main street, yet it feels secluded and quiet, surrounded by trees that give the place a lot of privacy. The campground wasn’t very full when we arrived seventeen days ago, but it has really filled up since then. Actually, it started […]

First off today, I want to thank all of our veterans for giving us the freedom to enjoy this Independence Day! Yesterday’s blog post, Alaska Is Not For Us, brought some interesting comments and e-mail. While I was not surprised by the several e-mails from blog readers who told me I was wrong, and that […]

We have visitors! Yesterday afternoon our dear friends Greg and Jan White arrived at the Elks lodge campground here in Show Low, on their way south to Austin, Texas for the daughter Brandi’s wedding later this month. We last saw Greg and Jan when we spent two weeks in Las Vegas with them in March, […]
