I’ll Be Switched

As I said the other day, every time an RV goes rolling down the highway it’s subject to earthquake forces as it bounces over potholes and through rough construction zones. So it’s no wonder that things shake loose or break from time to time. A few days ago Terry started a load of laundry and […]

One Problem Fixed

I mentioned the other day that we had a water leak that we could not find and that it was getting worse. A couple of blog readers recommended Morry Bernard, who runs West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair here in Florence and is also in our RV Good Guys guide, so I knew he […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

Not Having Fun

Terry and I spent yesterday not having fun. And that was no fun at all. We’ve been to Las Vegas before and had fun, but Greg and Jan White were with us. Greg likes to drive and I don’t like all the crazy traffic here, so I got to sit back and play passenger. Here […]

Running Our Legs Off

Or our wheels, at least. We’ve been going pretty much non-stop since we got to Tucson, getting all of our annual medical appointments taken care of. Monday was Terry’s turn, and yesterday was mine. We arrived at the VA hospital a little after 9 a.m. and I didn’t have to wait long before they took […]

The Little Dutch Boy

Do you remember the children’s story about a little Dutch boy who saves his country by putting his finger in a leaking dike? I kind of felt like that youngster yesterday. You may remember our black tank blockage last week, and that one suggestion was to drill a small hole in the end of the […]

RV Inspections

One of the most frequent questions I get from people who are new to the RV lifestyle and shopping for a used rig is, should they get a pre-purchase inspection, and if so, who does them? I consider an independent inspection to be vital when purchasing something as expensive as an RV. In fact, as […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after working a lot of hours this past week finishing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I planned to spoil myself and sleep in, and that’s just what I did! We got to bed about 3 a.m. and woke up about 10:30. I guess I needed it; I’m […]

A Geek And A Geezer

Thanks to those who sent messages hoping Miss Terry was feeling better. Yes, whatever bug was picking on her passed and she woke up feeling much better yesterday morning. When I checked my morning e-mail I had one from Chris Guld, the better looking and smarter half of Geeks on Tour, suggesting she come by […]
