Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]

How Do You Holiday?

This time of year I always seem to get a lot of emails and see a lot of comments on social media from new fulltime RVers and RV snowbirds wondering how to handle the holidays. For a lot of newbies, and even for some experienced road warriors, Thanksgiving and Christmas provide a certain amount of […]

Don’t Be A Slob

It’s that time of year once again, the start of the snowbird season, and RVs are already abandoning the colder climates up north and heading south in search of sunshine and warm weather. If you’re one of them, please drive carefully. There are a lot of crazy people out there texting and talking on cell […]

Where Will You Roost?

With all the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma this year, a lot of RV snowbirds who had planned to winter in the Florida Keys or on the Texas Gulf Coast are finding themselves looking for someplace else to go. I’ve received a number of requests for suggestions on alternative snowbird roosts. The Florida […]

I have received quite a few e-mails from RV snowbirds wanting to know if I think they’ll be able to come to Florida for the winter as they had planned, due to the problems from Hurricane Irma. Yes, come on down. Florida is still here and open for business. While some areas got hit worse […]

Note: With the official start of summer less than a month away, I thought today would be a good time to repost this blog from 2010. A lot of us snowbirds and fulltimers who have been sitting still much of the winter are hitting the road, and weekend warriors are getting their RVs ready for […]

It’s been pretty hot here for the last week or so, and we have stayed close to home for most of it. Terry is involved in a weaving project, and I’ve been working on my new Big Lake mystery book. I’m at 16,000 words now and moving right along. Speaking of books, that’s the subject […]

Size Matters

Note: This is a reprint from a 2014 blog post. One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel, or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question because no one size fits all RV has […]

Invaded Again

We are being invaded again. I’m not sure how much more of this we can take. When will it ever end? Our little corner of the world is usually pretty quiet, and even this time year, with all the snowbirds around, it’s not too bad. Sure, you have to wait a little bit longer in […]

If you are a Gypsy Journal subscriber, check your e-mail. Yesterday morning I made the final corrections after Terry proofread the new issue, then I uploaded it to our web server and sent the link out to our subscribers. Today I will be sending out renewal notices to subscribers who are up for renewal. It’s […]
