It sounds like we are in a war zone here in northern Indiana. There have been fireworks going off all over the place for several days now, and it will probably continue into Tuesday. They are legal here and folks are having a great time setting them off. They don’t really bother me, though I […]

It’s always fun to meet our readers and make new friends, and that’s just what we got to do yesterday. Sometime in the early afternoon there was a knock on our motorhome’s door and I opened it to find Terry and Diane Pyatt standing there. They introduced themselves and Terry said he is a devoted […]

Apparently people are getting spam e-mails (not on Facebook) that say they are from me. They are NOT from me so please don’t open anything that has my name or this address NickRussell@simple.je No, that’s not the speed of our old MCI bus conversion going up a steep hill, that’s the average of how many […]

The rain had stopped sometime overnight and when we got up a little after 7 yesterday morning it was cool and damp but it looked like a good day for a trip. Terry had a lot of our pre-trip preparations done inside the motorhome the night before so it was easy to finish the rest, […]

Back in January I posted a blog with pictures of homemade RVs titled Coming To A Campground Near You that was so well received that I followed it up a month later with a second helping called More Oddball RVs. Since then blog readers have sent me even more pictures of RVs you won’t find […]

Everybody is different and every RVer is different. That’s why they make so many different types and models of motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, Class B vans and other specialty vehicles for fulltime RV travel. When it comes to selecting an RV, you have the opportunity to choose a home on wheels that closely […]

We spent yesterday exploring cowboy country. Many of the wild tales of the Old West, both real and fictionalized, took place in Cochise County, Arizona, and we decided it was time to introduce Greg and Jan White  to this historic corner of Arizona. We left the fairgrounds about 9 a.m. and drove to Benson, where […]

The fun at the Gypsy Journal rally never stops, from sunup to long past sundown. If you come to one of these events and are bored, it’s your own fault. You must be hiding in your RV, or something! The first seminar I gave yesterday was called Laugh Your Way Across The USA, which is […]

Please watch where you step today, the butts of our entire rally parking crew are dragging, and I don’t want you to step on them! 🙂 Compared to the Early Bird parking day last year, yesterday was a breeze. Yes, everybody worked very hard, but the weather cooperated, we had a good plan of attack, […]

No, Santa Claus isn’t coming to town, but the RV gypsies are! We’re so close to the start of our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally that I can see all of those motorhomes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, and B vans coming down the highway! Right now, we have 175 RVs registered, and who knows how many […]
