Thank you to everybody who left blog comments and sent emails or messages about the return of my back problems. I had a rough night and woke up yesterday morning about 8 AM with the pain back in full force. I really don’t like to take heavy-duty pain meds, but every medical person I know […]

Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

Most of yesterday was spent moving our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage motorhome out of the storage lot and over to our house, and getting it ready to show to a potential buyer who is supposed to come by on Sunday. I had unhooked all of the batteries when we parked it a few weeks ago to […]

After being gone for so long it was absolutely wonderful to sleep in our own bed Wednesday night. In fact, it was so good that neither one of us wanted to get up yesterday morning. But we did, because we had a lot of catching up to do. The first order of business for me […]

Thank you all for your prayers and concern in the last few weeks. It was a very rough trip in many ways. My daughter Tiffany is home and doing well after having a defibulator implanted. She coded twice and the nurses told us they were sure they were going to lose her, but they got […]

Yesterday we had a visit from a celebrity from the RV world. Our friend Al Hesselbart drove up from Bushnell to spend the afternoon with us. We had not seen Al since last summer when we were at Elkhart Campground in Indiana and we were really looking forward to his visit. If you don’t know […]

What We Use

I get a lot of e-mails from readers asking for recommendations or advice about various RV products. Over the years many manufacturers have provided us with products to test. Some of them we have liked a lot and others we have passed on for something we consider to be better. So I thought today I […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we have been getting a lot of rain here in northern Indiana. But even the weatherman on the 11 PM news on Monday didn’t know how much we were going to get. They were predicting up to three inches, but the storm was just getting started by then. Depending […]

And that’s what it started doing yesterday morning and continued all day and all night. The weather report said we could expect as much as three inches to come down yesterday here in northern Indiana, and the 10 p.m. news last night said some areas in the region got five inches, and it was still […]

If you have been reading this blog or the Gypsy Journal for very long, you probably know I have a reputation for saying what’s on my mind, and I’ve been known to step on toes now and then. You may also know that I have said for a long time that the biggest problem with […]
