Note: This is a repeat of a blog previously published. The internet can be a great tool for travel planning. Anytime we are visiting a new area, I spend some time online doing a bit of research and it’s amazing how many interesting places we find within an easy ride of our campground. Here are some […]

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.

Through a herculean effort on the part of Miss Terry, we got the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed out, and now we can take a deep breath and relax. At least until next time. In yesterday’s blog, I wrote about how Cheryl Howarth from Miller Insurance helped us get the ball rolling with […]

We spent part of yesterday visiting with Smokey and Pam Ridgely at Mark Twain Landing, which has an RV park and a huge water park. Smokey and Pam are workamping there this summer, and we wanted to see them before we left the area. Bob and Molly Pinner had moved to Mark Twain Landing from […]
