My new book, Big Lake Tragedy, has been through two proofreaders now, with one more to go. So it won’t be long now, folks! I don’t know about you, but I’m getting excited. Since we have been pretty much confined to the house while I was working on the new book, we decided to take […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to put everyone’s fears to rest about our friends Dennis and Carol Hill, former owners of the RV Driving School. Dennis and Carol have been exploring Alaska this summer, and four or five people have e-mailed me saying they haven’t posted a blog in a while and […]

This is the fourth collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk about today. In case you didn’t know, potpourri is defined as 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous […]

Most of yesterday was spent moving our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage motorhome out of the storage lot and over to our house, and getting it ready to show to a potential buyer who is supposed to come by on Sunday. I had unhooked all of the batteries when we parked it a few weeks ago to […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here, usually because they are ones I receive more than once from different people. Q. Now that you and Terry have bought a […]

Well, the motorhome is finally empty and everything has been moved into the house. Now if we could just figure out where to put all of it! At this point we have some stuff put away, but a lot more is stacked up here and there, kind of like airplanes in a holding pattern at […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish our good friend Al Hesselbart happy birthday. We first met Al way back when we had only been on the road a few months. At that time he was the historian for the RV Museum and we stopped in to visit and do a story on […]

I have had several e-mail and online discussions with folks recently about what is the best RV for their needs. I do a 90 minute seminar at RV shows and rallies called How To Be A Smart RV Shopper. It’s never enough time to cover all of the things that a lot of buyers never […]

A couple of readers have e-mailed me with questions about braking and auxiliary brake systems for RVs. Keeping in mind that I am not a technical person, I’ll share what I told them, and I welcome your input as well. Two readers questioned me about my comment in a recent blog about not using an […]

I had a restless night, and then my phone rang at 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That call took almost half an hour, and by then I was awake, so I got dressed and opened the window blinds to greet the morning. I know a lot of otherwise intelligent people who just love getting up early […]
