I spent many years of my life living in Arizona, which is where the people from Hell go to warm up when things get too chilly for them down there. Yes, I have seen the television news people fry an egg on the sidewalk in Gila Bend in August. Fans of Arizona will tell you […]

Wherever you are today, be it boondocking in the Arizona desert, attending a potluck at your favorite RV resort, or having dinner at home with lots of family surrounding you, Miss Terry and I wish you a very, very happy Thanksgiving. This is our first major holiday since we bought our house and left the […]

A Near Miss

We left the Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida a little before 10 a.m. yesterday for the 280 mile trip back to the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange. The trip would not be uneventful. When people ask me about safety in an RV, I always tell them that you are much more likely […]

We were awakened yesterday by a lady knocking on our door to ask me if I thought it was safe to return to St. Augustine. She was alone in a travel trailer and eager to get back home but worried about traffic, wind, and what she might find when she got there. I told her […]

We have spent the last few days just biding our time here at Beaver Lake Campground in Quincy, Florida, waiting until we can go back to the coast. I’ve spent most of the time working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, researching some other writing projects, watching storm coverage on TV, and cruising […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I posted a link to a story about a man who had a bunch of explosives in his motorhome at an RV park in Arizona, I got four emails from people who wanted to know how they could avoid a situation like that. I have no idea. I’ve found […]

Our month at the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange, Florida is up and it’s time to move on down the road. Or up the road, actually. And probably just in time, since it’s been getting warmer every week. Today we will have an easy run of just 60 miles to the Elks lodge […]

You can tell it’s mid-March in Florida because the crickets are chirping and the snowbirds are starting to make their migration back up north. Low fuel prices and cold weather in other parts of the country have made for full campgrounds here in the Sunbelt all winter. But in the last few days we’ve seen […]

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is the many wonderful friends we have made over the years as we have roamed America’s highways and back roads. And reconnecting with them is always a lot of fun. Yesterday afternoon we got to do just that when we met our friends Stu and Donna […]

When the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning I wanted nothing more than to roll over and go back to sleep. But it was a travel day so I drug myself out of bed, sniveling all the way. Terry seemed to be over her cold for the most part, but mine was still in […]
