It has been miserably hot here in Elkhart the last couple of days, with temperatures up in the 90s and high humidity, which upped the heat index to around 100°. Fortunately, the basement air conditioner on our Winnebago motorhome cranks out enough cold air that even with some of the ceiling air vents closed, it’s […]

Why Is It So High?

Over the years we have been in a lot of RVs. Everything from small Class C motorhomes to huge fifth wheel trailers and mega coaches with four slides. A lot of them are sold on the “Wow” factor. You know what that is, right? A customer walks in, sees the pretty carpeting and all of […]

Apparently people are getting spam e-mails (not on Facebook) that say they are from me. They are NOT from me so please don’t open anything that has my name or this address NickRussell@simple.je No, that’s not the speed of our old MCI bus conversion going up a steep hill, that’s the average of how many […]

Tuesday afternoon I sent the new issue of the Gypsy Journal off to the printer in Michigan, and yesterday was a goof off day. We slept in a bit and then spent some time snuggling and enjoying not having to jump right back into the computer work before we finally got up and ready to […]

Note: I’m too full of turkey and Miss Terry’s delicious homemade pecan pie to want to work, so I’m giving myself the night off and re-posting this blog from earlier this year. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them […]

Everybody says it’s going to be a long, cold winter, and I believe that might be true. It got down into the 50s Saturday night and I was grateful for the blanket Terry draped across the foot of the bed. It wasn’t long before it got pulled all the way up! It was another day […]

Over the years I’ve given new and wannabe RVers a lot of advice to help them make the best choices, but today I thought we’d go in a different direction and we’ll talk about some things NOT to do. We thought we had done our research, but starting out we made just about every mistake […]

I don’t believe that every RV salesman is a liar and a cheat. But the sad fact is that a lot of them are; enough to cast a wide shadow that, unfortunately, sometimes touches the whole industry. I’ve worked in sales over the years, everything from advertising to automobiles, and was successful at all of […]

I figure by now you’re pretty sick of me telling you that I spent the day at my desk fighting our slow internet connection and working on getting the shopping carts working for our back issues. But that’s pretty much what I did, except for posting a new indie author interview with fulltime RVer Jaimie […]

Yesterday afternoon I posted what I believe (hope) will be the final schedule for our Ohio Gypsy Journal Rally. Unless there is a major problem, I don’t anticipate any last minute changes. You can view the schedule by going to our Rally Registration Page and scrolling down. A couple of readers have asked about last […]
