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 […]

I Have Found Me A Home

The title of this blog is also the title of my favorite Jimmy Buffett song, which he wrote after his first visit to Key West, Florida. If you have never listened to it before, check it out at this YouTube link. Miss Terry and I can relate to that song today. As most of you […]

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 […]

Time To Move On

We have had a delightful week parked at our friend Nancy Kissack‘s place here in Atwater, California but it’s time to move on. I’m afraid that if I stay any longer she may have to put me down as a dependent on her tax return. Except for parking at my cousin’s house in Michigan, another […]

With so many reports of RVs having front tire blowouts lately, some blog readers have asked if we have any type of after-market steering control on our motorhome, and if so, what brand I recommend. Yes, we do. A couple of years ago we had Redlands Truck and RV install a Safe-T-Plus steering control on […]

 I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun because Monday was another fast day for us and we got a lot accomplished. I spent some time online making and confirming reservations for our summer travels. Given the choice, we prefer not to have a set schedule and be locked into reservations. But since […]

Yesterday we had a short, easy move to the Wilmington (Ohio) Thousand Trails preserve. It was only 78 miles from our site at the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails to our site at the new campground, and even with a couple of narrow construction zones going around the top side of the Cincinnati metro area, it […]

Way back in 1974, right after I got out of the Army, I taught a few self-defense classes at a community college setting in Ohio. I don’t remember how much I earned for them, but it wasn’t much and I had completely forgotten about them until yesterday, when I received a notice from the School […]

We’ve been in the Apache Junction area for six weeks, which is at least two weeks longer than I like sitting still, and we both have a bad case of hitch itch. But today we get to roll our motorhome’s wheels! We plan to leave Countryside RV Resort mid-morning and drive to Tucson, where we […]

How To Grow A Business

It was so cold yesterday morning that neither one of us was in a hurry to get out of bed. If this is a preview of things to come, I think it’s going to be a long cold winter. Fortunately for us, we plan to be in Florida for a good part of the winter. […]
