After months of discussion, exploring possible alternatives, debate, and heartache, we have come to the difficult decision to phase out the printed edition of the Gypsy Journal. As we have shared with our readers in the last few months, rising printing, and especially mailing, costs have reached the point that we are making less than […]

We were awake before 6 a.m. yesterday morning to be ready for the tech at Rocky Mountain Cummins to take our motorhome into the garage at 7:30. Since we are not morning people, we were not thrilled about that. And it’s been our experience at different repair shops over the years that even though they […]

I had hoped to get some work done on my book yesterday but it seemed like the rest of the world didn’t want that to happen. To be honest, it started off slow because I didn’t sleep well the night before and got up even later than usual for me. I had a huge backlog […]

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 […]

We were up and at it early again yesterday, so the Spartan Chassis tech could get started on our motorhome a little after 7 AM. Now I have to tell you something, you can call me a whiner and a sniffler and a crybaby all you want, but this getting up so early in the […]

Can you think of anything worse than getting up at 6 AM? I can. How about getting up at 6 AM so you can spend a lot of money on RV repairs? We were told a tech would be coming by shortly after 7 AM yesterday to move our motorhome into a bay here at […]

It’s so darned cold out that even I’m ticked off at me for coming to Florida! At noon yesterday it was 41 degrees in Ocala, but it was 54 in Bismarck, North Dakota, and 51 in Kansas City, Kansas!  Would somebody please explain that to me? 🙁 Yesterday was a triple whammy for me. I […]

Where does the day go to? Sometimes I look around me, and I realize it’s almost bedtime, and I have no idea what I did all day long! Yesterday was a good example. We woke up and stayed in bed for a half hour or so, talking about our plans for  the next few weeks, […]

I get a lot of e-mails from blog readers and Gypsy Journal subscribers.  Some of those e-mails tell me about new places we should visit, or share our readers’ experiences at places they visited after reading our stories about them. Others offer suggestions about ways I can improve the blogs, or things we can do […]

The fabric on the slide topper awnings on the two slide rooms on our motorhome had become very frayed and nasty looking, so when we were here in Apache Junction last year, we had a mobile awning repair company replace  them. Since the company was recommended by a friend who is an A&E factory rep, […]
