Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. Another collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Last month I shared ten questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers that I have received Q. Do you and Terry plan to do any traveling this year, and if so, where will you go? A. Yes, we will definitely be traveling, though we don’t have any set schedule at this point. We will […]

Close, But No Cigar

As I’ve said here previously, we are looking for a place to buy to use as a winter nesting spot, and maybe a fulltime home if and when we ever have to hang up the keys due to health issues or something like that. We have certain criteria that we will not compromise on, and […]

There Must Be A Reason

There is an old saying that everything happens for a reason. I might add that sometimes you need to listen to reason. A few days ago I got an e-mail from a gentleman asking my advice about an RV purchase. He wants to buy a motorhome that he says is an excellent deal, $35,000 less […]

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

We lived in Arizona many years before we started fulltiming, and though a lot of people love it, especially in the wintertime, we’d much rather be in Florida. I’ll take beaches and mosquitoes over desert and scorpions any day of the week. Some people like the low humidity here in the desert, but with that […]

Some people are their own worst enemy and nothing you can say to them will keep them from getting into trouble. The best you can do is step back to a safe spot and watch the train wreck that is surely coming. Case in point; I got an e-mail a few days ago from a […]

As we get closer to the Escapees Escapade rally next week at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Elkhart Campground is getting busier. Yesterday it seemed like one RV after another pulled in. But there is still plenty of room for anyone needing a nice place to stay until the rally starts. Terry and I have been […]

Note: I get a lot of requests for information on vending at RV rallies. This is an updated article that first ran in the March-April, 2007 issue of the Gypsy Journal. It sounds like a great idea. Find a couple of products, buy a folding table or two, and pay for your travels by selling […]

A Change Of Scenery

After three weeks in Tucson, we were ready for a change of scenery. So yesterday morning we fired up the Cummins diesel engine in our Winnebago and hit the road, headed for Yuma. It was close to 11 a.m. when we left the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and even though morning rush hour was […]
