We have been on the go so much lately that we really needed a day at home just to recharge our batteries and get caught up on things around here. So we never left the house yesterday, which was just fine with both of us. We slept in a bit and then after breakfast we […]

Making Friends

A topic that often comes up in the seminars I present on fulltiming at RV rallies and other events is making friends on the road. More than one new or wannabe RVer has told me that they wonder if they will have anybody to talk to when they are surrounded by strangers. I am always […]

While there is no question that there are some clods in the world who don’t realize that their actions can impact others, I think overall most people are nice and don’t go out of their way to be obnoxious. Many times new RVers do things that irritates those around them only because they don’t understand […]

One of the things I’ve enjoyed at our site here at Elkhart Campground is that we are right next to the dog park, which means I get to meet a lot of friendly critters and get my puppy fix on a regular basis. Dogs and cats make fine pets for RVers, and we have known many […]

We made the decision long ago not to own any more pets because one would not fit well with our lifestyle since we are on the go so much covering stories for the Gypsy Journal, and the animal would be stuck at home by itself for hours on end. But I do love dogs. Not […]

Terry and I love animals and always have. I’m partial to German shepherds and have been owned by several fine ones over the years. When we got together Terry had two dogs, an Australian Shepherd and a Siberian Husky, as well as several cats. When we hit the road we found new homes for all […]

Today’s blog is going to start with a bit of a rant and it’s not about a pleasant subject, so you may want to scroll down or skip today’s post. I got an e-mail from some folks who were upset about an incident that did not have to happen and just pisses me off. They […]

Yesterday was a gray, rainy day and there wasn’t much going on at the RV park except for people walking their dogs. I have owned a dog most of my life and I love them, but every time I see people out in the rain with a dog sniffing every blade of grass deciding where […]

I have spent most of the last week working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and only have four pages to go before I send it off to the printer Sunday. I was hoping to get it wrapped up yesterday, but something went haywire with the layout about 9:30 PM and I worked […]

Terry Was Impressed

We were up at 7:30 yesterday morning because we had an appointment to get our Winnebago’s two-piece windshield replaced. The shop is just off U.S. Highway 101 in Warrenton, about ten miles from the campground, and on the way there I pulled into the same weigh station we stopped at three weeks ago to weigh […]
