I get a lot of email every day, and a lot of those emails are from people who have questions about the RV lifestyle. What kind of RV should I buy? Is gas or diesel better in a motorhome? How do I get mail? What state should I choose for my legal domicile? I get […]

After all the cold weather we had last week, it sure was nice to see temperatures warming back up into the upper 60s yesterday. We are supposed to see mid to upper 70s starting today. Warm is nice. I started out yesterday going through my e-mail, and I really have to say that there are […]

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 […]

RVing With A Goal

Note: The blog is based upon the seminar by the same name that I present at RV rallies around the country. Why do you RV? To visit friends and family in far off places? To have your own mobile lodging when you visit theme parks or natural attractions? To have a way to escape cold […]

RVing bird watchers have wonderful opportunities awaiting them in Florida any time of year. But just as snowbirds flock south in their homes on wheels, many bird species from colder climates make Florida their winter home as well. The state’s diversity of habitats, the many migration routes that pass through, great numbers of wetlands, and climates […]

Most of yesterday was spent getting the initial 5,000 mile oil change and check-up on our Pacifica, then running some errands in Daytona Beach, and stopping for dinner at Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet, the best Chinese buffet we have found in the area. So rather than bore you with the details of all of […]

Something that Terry and I learned very quickly after buying our house is that customer service is sadly lacking in this area. Businesses will make you all kinds of promises, but when it actually comes to following through on them, forget it. Just because you have an appointment doesn’t mean they will keep it. They […]

Note: This story is from the November-December 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. As soon as we hit the road as fulltime RVers, people began telling us about North Dakota’s Enchanted Highway, a 32 mile long stretch of two lane road between Interstate 94 and the little hamlet of Regent, to the south. The Enchanted Highway’s claim to fame […]

We’ve been doing a lot of that since we got back home on Sunday afternoon. Catching up on email, catching up on blogs we have missed in the week we were on the road, catching up on laundry, and catching up on rest. And in today’s blog I will catch up on some things I […]

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 […]
