I got an email yesterday from a couple who are currently stuck in Wisconsin dealing with a family medical issue that may keep them there most of the winter. They said that while their RV is supposed to be an “all seasons” rig, they are finding it is far from adequate in the situation they […]

We were up early again yesterday morning, something we’ve done all too much of lately. That’s a habit we have to try really hard to break. It’s starting to get out of hand. After checking morning e-mails, storing the last things away inside the motorhome for traveling, and unhooking our utilities, we were ready to […]

We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, and on the road by 10, heading east from Hidden Valley RV Resort in Tijeras, New Mexico on State Route 333, which runs alongside Interstate 40, Terry leading me in the Explorer. We had not filled our propane tank since we were at Elkhart Campground last summer and […]

Yesterday was the third morning in a row that I was up before 9 a.m. I think I need to have some sort of intervention to break this vicious cycle! 🙁 I answered a bunch of e-mails, logged in a couple of orders for digital Gypsy Journal subscriptions, and then we started getting ready to […]

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. That’s life, and I guess if, in the end, your personal scoreboard shows more wins than losses, it was worth the effort, wasn’t it? Yesterday we did some winning and some losing, but I think we still came out ahead. After stopping to have our propane tank filled, and […]

Saturday night when we got ready to take our showers, we discovered that we had no hot water. Because we are on 20 amp electric here at the Yuma Fairgrounds, we’ve been running the water heater on propane, so my first thought was that we had run out of propane gas. I went outside and […]

We wanted to be on the road by about 9 a.m. yesterday, but that didn’t happen. We were up early, and Miss Terry got the inside of our Winnebago ready for the road, while I made a stop at the dumpster, and then went up to the office at the Thousand Trails campground to tell […]

Fulltime RVers always say that their plans are written in Jell-O, and that’s a good thing, because it gives us the flexibility to go with the flow. Even when the flow is taking us where we don’t want to go! I have bad news, and good news, and more bad news to share with you. […]

Yesterday we took our first short trip in our new to us Winnebago Ultimate Advantage, and we love it! The motorhome has so much storage that getting ready to hit the road was a simple matter of pushing a button to stow the automatic satellite TV dish, pulling in the slides and retracting the leveling […]
