We’ve stayed at a lot of campgrounds in our 16+ years of fulltime RV travel, some really nice places and some not so nice. There are campgrounds that we return to on a regular basis, and others where one stop was more than enough. RVers often ask us what our favorite campgrounds are. Sometimes I […]

It’s time to move on, and we are leaving the Verde Valley Thousand Trails preserve today. Except for the often flakey Verizon internet service, this is one of our favorite campgrounds, and we love the Verde Valley region. But we’re ready for some new scenery. However, we’ll be making a trip to the shop on […]

We got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed off yesterday afternoon, which is always a good feeling.

The storm that hammered us over the weekend has moved on eastward, leaving behind some patches of snow on the mountainsides around the Verde Valley, along with blue sky and warmer temperatures in its wake. I’m finally beginning to feel better, and life is getting back to normal around our motorhome. Or at least as […]

Even though Spring has barely sprung, many of the RVers we know are already on the road, starting their summer travel adventures. Some have been sitting still all winter long in one snowbird roost or another from Florida, to Texas, to Arizona and southern California, and have a bad case of hitch itch. Others have […]
