That’s what we have been doing. I spent much of the day yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and Miss Terry was proofing things as I printed them out. There was a good stiff breeze blowing and I was really tempted to go down to the beach and do some kite […]

One of the things I’ve enjoyed at our site here at Elkhart Campground is that we are right next to the dog park, which means I get to meet a lot of friendly critters and get my puppy fix on a regular basis. Dogs and cats make fine pets for RVers, and we have known many […]

There are a lot of things in the RV lifestyle you should know, from how to get your mail forwarded to which are the best states to choose for your legal domicile, to what kinds of (choose one – fire extinguisher, insurance company, tire pressure monitoring system, toilet paper, etc. you should choose). I have […]

 In today’s blog I thought I would answer a few questions that I seem to get on a regular basis. But before I do, let me say that my answers are what work for us. What works for you may be entirely different. The first question is, how do we access Internet on the road, […]

We are not ready to stop traveling yet, and probably never will be, as long as our health allows. But after almost 17 years of fulltime RVing we are slowing down. We like being at Point A and Point B and Point C, but we find we are not enjoying the trips between those places […]

The Escapees RV Club‘s 56th Escapade rally will be held July 24- 29 in Essex Junction, Vermont, and like all Escapees events, it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m not sure of the exact schedule yet, but I’ll be presenting several seminars at the rally and they will have a full lineup of […]

I’ve had several job titles in my life. Soldier, cop, entrepreneur, journalist, newspaper publisher, author, public speaker, and a couple I choose to forget. But I think that at 63 years of age, I have finally found my calling. I’m going to become a remittance man. For those of you not familiar with the term, […]

The Balance Of Nature

Anybody who has spent much time wandering around in the outdoors knows that Mother Nature has a system of checks and balances. If there is season or two with good rain and good weather, small game like rabbits will appear in abundance. And being rabbits they breed like…. well, rabbits. One would think that before […]

Blue Sky And Visitors

The rain finally cleared out sometime early Tuesday morning and we woke up to mostly blue sky, something we have not seen in a while. And to make it even better, it was in the low 60s and the wind wasn’t blowing. While I’d prefer it was in the 70s, I can live with that. […]

The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of […]
