There are a lot of things in the RV lifestyle you should know, from how to get your mail forwarded to which are the best states to choose for your legal domicile, to what kinds of (choose one – fire extinguisher, insurance company, tire pressure monitoring system, toilet paper, etc. you should choose). I have […]

The weekend storm finally blew itself out by Sunday evening, taking the wind and rain with it. Yesterday was overcast for much of the day, but quite a bit warmer. There was a little bit of a breeze and we thought about taking our kites down to the beach, but we were both busy with […]

Now that the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is at the printers and the digital edition has been sent out to all of our subscribers, we’re just putting in time waiting for the printed issue to get shipped back to us. But that’s okay, sometimes it’s nice not to have anything on our schedule […]

Getting packages delivered can sometimes be a hassle for fulltime RVers. Some campgrounds will allow you to have things sent to them and others will not. When that happens you have to have it sent General Delivery to the local post office, or else to a local company that accepts packages for travelers. Some of […]

That’s Just Wrong!

We were up at Oh-Dark-Thirty yesterday morning to get the motorhome packed up and ready to go to for an appointment to get both windshields replaced at 10:30. Just before it was time to leave I called to confirm the directions to the shop and they said because it was raining and our RV is […]

Today wraps up our two-week stay at the Long Beach Thousand Trails preserve, and Tuesday we’ll be returning to the Seaside Thousand Trails. We booked a three-week stay there, but I’m not sure how long we’ll actually stay. If the weather keeps being wet and nasty like it was this past weekend, we may start […]

One of the things new or wannabe fulltime RVers sometimes worry about is making friends on the road. Then when they get out here, they’re surprised at how many friends they have! And unlike the so-called “friends” they had in their former life, who were sometimes friends of convenience because they worked together or bowled […]

We left the Seaside Thousand Trails at 10 yesterday morning, with Terry at the wheel of the motorhome. We had a short run of about 35 miles to the Long Beach, Washington Thousand Trails preserve, but since that involved driving over the long, high Astoria-Megler Bridge, I was delegated to the role of navigator and […]

Sharks In Seaside

Seaside, Oregon is a nice little town on the Oregon Coast, and the emphasis here is on the beach and the ocean. But when Miss Terry said something about wanting a shark, I started thinking that maybe it was time to take her inland. I saw Jaws and I don’t want anything to do with […]

Yesterday morning we set what is absolutely a new record for us for getting on the road in the morning, and it sucked. I never want to do that again! Monday night we turned off the bedroom TV at 12:30, which is early for us, because we wanted to get an early start on our […]
