Terry and I both want to thank everybody for all of your well wishes following our announcement yesterday that we have purchased a place to be our winter base and someday retirement home here in Florida.

That’s what somebody told me just last week when he asked my advice about his motorhome’s eight year old tires and I advised him to replace them, even though they had a lot of tread left and looked good. “You may know a lot about fulltime RVing, but you don’t know everything, Nick. These tires […]

I said in yesterday’s blog that the power was supposed to be out for several hours here at the Orlando Thousand Trails yesterday, so I wasn’t sure how much work I would get done on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But as it turned out, about 3 PM two work trucks pulled up […]

There was nothing more we would’ve enjoyed than sleeping in yesterday morning, but we were up early so we could start getting ready for our road trip to Show Low, our old hometown. Anytime we have stayed put in one place for a couple of weeks, it takes a little bit of effort to get […]

It started raining sometime late Tuesday night and by the time we got up yesterday morning there was a steady but light drizzle coming down. We were up by 7 a.m., which is an ungodly hour even if it isn’t cold and gray outside. We were at Redlands Truck & RV Performance Center a little […]

Yeah I know, on the surface Greg White seems like an easy going kind of guy who’s always ready to pitch in and help where needed. However, things aren’t always what they appear to be. Where is Greg when I need him now? We have developed a leak in our Splendide washer, and instead of […]
