Note: This story is from a 2009 issue of the Gypsy Journal. We love getting out on the back roads and exploring small town America. We like to find an RV park to use as a base and make day trips throughout the region, poking around in the hidden corners and small towns that get […]

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 […]

The Enchanted Highway

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 have been on the go so much lately that we really needed a day at home just to recharge our batteries and get caught up on things around here. So we never left the house yesterday, which was just fine with both of us. We slept in a bit and then after breakfast we […]

Fake News

You all know what that is, right? That’s all the misinformation, innuendo, and BS that anybody associated with politics and the media puts out these days. Well, apparently I’m just as guilty as the rest of them. But in my defense, I really couldn’t help it. After all, besides publishing the Gypsy Journal for the […]

After the nice folks at Cummins in Bossier City, Louisiana solved our fuel problems, we left there Wednesday afternoon heading east on Interstate 20. We only drove about 90 miles, stopping at Pavilion RV Park in West Monroe for the night. It’s a nice park, with easy access on and off the highway. We stayed […]

Thank you to all of you who sent emails, posted blog comments or on Facebook wishing us well, offering to come to our assistance if necessary, and praying for our safety after my blog about our breakdown on Sunday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the last of our troubles on the Trip From Hell, but we are […]

I got an email yesterday from a blog reader asking me if I had read an article on the RVtravel.com website saying that due to the dramatic increase in the number of RVers on the road these days, the spontaneous road trip is pretty much a thing of the past. The article showed pictures used […]

Timing Is Everything

They say that timing is everything, and I think there’s a lot of truth to that. Did you ever stop to think about how things happen, or don’t happen, just because the timing is or isn’t right? What if you had left the house five minutes earlier? Would you have been in the middle of […]

If you’re going to be heading north, try to avoid Atlanta, Georgia if at all possible. The news last night said that a fire caused a portion of Interstate 85 to collapse in Atlanta and that traffic is going to face delays for a long time. Getting around or through Atlanta is a challenge under […]
