We had a lot of little chores to do around the motorhome so we spent yesterday hanging out here at Jojoba Hills getting some of them done. And I actually made some headway on whittling down my To Do list. I started out by calling our mail forwarding service to have our mail sent to […]

Sometimes Less Is More

One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best. There is no right or wrong answer to that question, because they don’t make a one size fits all recreational vehicle. Everybody’s needs, interests, capabilities, and budget are […]

We’re Stopping Here?

We were up early yesterday morning to get ready for our trip to the Seaside Thousand Trails preserve. Terry had already turned the driver and passenger seats around the night before and done some other prep work. That always helps. While she was finishing things up inside the motorhome, I walked down to the dumpster […]

I’m not a subtle kind of guy. If you want to give me a message, sometimes you have to hit me between the eyes with a 2×4 to get my attention first. So if you want to tell me where to go, don’t give me the finger, go all the way and give me the […]

Highs And Lows

Yesterday was a day of highs and lows, with time spent with friends old and new, some panic, some frustration, but ending on a high note. The day started with a call from Jim Harper, telling me that a package I had ordered from Amazon had been delivered. Since we can’t get mail or packages […]

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 […]

Mission, Here We Come!

Yesterday was a beautiful day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. Blue sky, a light breeze, and about 70 degrees. It would have been a good day for kite flying, but I was focused on getting as much done as possible on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal because […]

I Did It!

It’s done! I got up early and cranked out over 4,500 words yesterday and finished Big Lake Burning, the sixth book in the series. Now I’ll give it a read through and then print it out for Terry to proof and edit. It always feels good to get a new book done, and once I […]

Can You Say Yuck?

There’s nothing like opening your curtains on the very first day of the year and seeing the guy in the RV site across from you washing his sewer hose out by sticking it under the water bib where the next RVer will be hooking up their fresh water hose. Yuck! Who doesn’t understand that if […]

Free Entertainment

If you’re looking for a cheap way to have a laugh or two, you never have to leave the RV park. All you have to do is walk around and watch folks trying to back into an RV site. It’s some of the best free entertainment you can find anywhere. Seriously, I’ve seen people make […]
