After everything that happened to us in the last week, when I got up early Saturday morning to talk to somebody at Rush Truck Center in Jacksonville, Florida, where we had been towed in the night before, I wasn’t feeling very optimistic. But I had a Facebook message saying that my nephew, Jack Russell, who […]

I get well over 100 emails a day, and sometimes twice that many. A lot of them are spam that somehow makes it through all of my spam filters, a certain amount are forwards and junk like that that I don’t even bother opening, but there also always some from readers wanting to share their […]

What has happened to the world? Have we all become a population of total wimps? Every day I end my blog with a thought for the day. Yesterday’s was “You can tell a lot about a woman from her hands. For instance, if they are wrapped tightly around your throat, she’s probably upset about something.” […]

It’s a fact of life that wherever you do your RVing you are occasionally going to have to deal with bad weather. We have been in monsoons in the Arizona desert that can fill dry riverbeds with raging floodwaters in a matter of seconds, more than once we have had tornadoes touch down within a […]

For the last few days Terry has had a very stiff neck and a nagging headache. By Thursday evening it was so bad it was making her sick to her stomach and she said her whole body ached. So I asked the folks in the office here at the Escapees Rainbow Plantation if they knew of […]

Yesterday we got to see a lot of breathtaking views, made some new friends, and had seafood for dinner. It just doesn’t get any better than that! I’ve been in every state in the country except Delaware, which is small and easy to miss, to England, Central America, and Southeast Asia. But for my money, […]

I Need A Woman!

Well, actually, I don’t need a woman. I already have the best one in the world. But that was what a fellow told me yesterday when he said we should add a dating column for single RVers to our website and the Gypsy Journal. I suggested he join some of the groups for single RVers, […]

I get a lot of e-mails from people who are just getting into the fulltime RV lifestyle and have questions about everything from which state to chose as their legal domicile to what kind of RV is best for them, to which camping clubs, if any, to join. One of the most frequent questions is […]

When some 50 employees at Heartland RV in Elkhart, Indiana were called off the job this week and told to report to the company’s main building, they must have wondered what was going on. Especially given the volatile RV market, which has had plenty of ups and downs in recent years. Even when you work […]

Where did yesterday go? I think I must have blinked and missed it. It was like, I woke up, I brushed my teeth, and ten minutes later it was time to brush my teeth and go back to bed. Of course, it didn’t help that I was up until almost 3 a.m. making notes of […]
