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 […]

Ugly Chicks

I spent some time yesterday hanging out with ugly chicks. Really ugly chicks! Uglier than the “ladies” in the Cactus Queen beauty contest at our RV rally last week. Now, before you start calling me an insensitive jerk, and telling me that beauty is only skin deep, or asking if I have looked in a […]

As promised, the road service fellow that Coach-Net sent out Sunday night called at 7:30 yesterday morning to tell me that he had located a replacement tire for our motorhome, and that he would be there within a half hour. He arrived promptly at 8, and mounted the new tire and the outside dual on […]

I’m Finally Warm!

Today is officially the last day I’m waking up early for a long time! We fell into this nasty habit over a week ago, and every morning we have been getting up much too early. As Deputy Barney Fife used to say in the old Andy Griffith television show, “It’s time to nip it! Nip […]

Holiday Weekend

We can tell it’s a holiday weekend, because the traffic is terrible in this little mountain community as people escape the heat of the desert and come up here to cool off. Up until now, besides the campground host, we have usually been sharing the Elks campground with only  one or two other RVs. But […]

A Bit Of A Delay

Tuesday morning we were up by 7 a.m., which is way too early for anybody with common sense, but we wanted to get up to RV Renovators in Mesa, Arizona to get our Norcold refrigerator recall work done. No matter how early I have to get up, my body has its own time clock, and […]

As much as we love the fulltime RV lifestyle, we have never gotten over the hurt when it is time to say our goodbyes and move on down the road. We have had a wonderful week visiting with my cousin Beverly here in Tucson, but sadly, it is time to go. There were tears all […]

After several days of trying to breathe new life into my cousin Beverly’s aging Acer laptop computer, and trying several fixes suggested by Jim Guld from Geeks on Tour and my buddy Greg White, my two “go to” guys when dealing with computer technical issues, it was decided that it was time to go computer […]

Note To Self

Note to self – If we ever hold another Gypsy Gathering rally at a commercial campground, we will require attendees to make their own reservations directly with the campground. The original plan was that the campground would have us handle the rally reservations, but it has become a nightmare as some people make reservations with […]

RV Friends

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle are the many wonderful friends we have made. As with most fulltime RVers, many times we find that these friendships are deeper and more fulfilling than those we had with folks back in our old lives, living in sticks and bricks. Like our lifestyle itself, RV […]
