We added a few new techno toys this year, and after using them for quite a while, I thought I’d give you my feedback on them in today’s blog, and whether I’d spend the money all over again. Kodak Zi8 digital video camera – I bought this unit for a  project I was working on, […]

Yesterday we left the campground a little after noon, to meet our friends Tom and Barb Westerfield for lunch at a Buffalo Wild Wings. We hadn’t seen Tom and Barb since our rally in Yuma in early March, where they were part of our advance crew, and handled a million and one large and small […]

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I had purchased a new Garmin 465T trucker model GPS, and a couple of blog readers asked me to let them know what I thought of the new unit, after using it for a while. After traveling about 1,000 miles with the GPS. I have to say that […]

Fortunately, most RVers we know are pretty mellow people who, aside from a heightened sense of adventure and a love for seeing what’s over the next hill and around the next bend in the road, are pretty much like anybody else you’d encounter anywhere. Most RVers, especially fulltimers, seem to be pretty tolerant people, and […]

All fulltime RVers have experienced it. We will be talking to somebody about our life on the road, and invariably they will ask us where our favorite place in the country is. We always reply that just as we could not choose which one of our children is our favorite, it would be just as […]

How do you travel? Do you make a beeline for your destination by the quickest possible route, or do you casually meander along until you get there? Do you plan your stops ahead of time so you know where you’ll be every night, or do you worry about where you’ll spend the night when you […]

Terry and I both want to thank all of you who posted comments on the blog, e-mailed, or called us after reading about our encounter with an armed burglar in our RV. Your concern and support are very much appreciated. We are okay, but both of us feel totally wiped out, I think myself more […]

Even though our Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally doesn’t officially start until next week, folks have been rolling in for the last two days! Yesterday Mike and Elaine Loscher arrived to help with the rally. This will be the fourth or fifth Gypsy Gathering rally for this nice couple, who always show up prepared to volunteer […]

We were talking to a couple who are considering extended RV travel, and one of their concerns was safety. They have heard urban legends about RVers being attacked while they spend the night at places like Wal-Mart, small town parks, and rest areas. We assured them that those kind of things almost never happen and not to […]
