I’ve never made it a secret of the fact that I am no fan of the tactics of a great many RV dealers and RV salespeople. There are a lot of honest, ethical people in the RV industry. But we seldom hear about them, because the sad truth is that there are also a lot […]

Last night I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I will upload it to our printer’s web server this morning. This is issue 92, and that’s a lot of travel stories! And there’s still so much that we want to see and do, and tell you about. Overheard yesterday morning at the […]

A Writing Day

After fifteen years of fulltiming we still love it as much as we did the first day, if not more. How could we not love a lifestyle that allows us the freedom ours does? But I have decided that if I ever do stop traveling I will live in the Florida Keys, write half a […]

Today’s The Day!

Today’s the day I kick off my first day-long self-publishing workshop and I must admit to being a bit nervous. I’ve presented hundreds of seminars over the years on everything from working on the road to how to buy an RV to seminars on self-publishing. But this is the first time I’ve attempted a day-long […]

Two In A Row!

We actually had two days with blue sky in a row here in Elkhart over the weekend! Could this be the beginning of a trend? Unfortunately, even though the sky was clear the wind still blew hard all day long and the temperature never got above the low 50s. And today the forecast is for […]

All Work And No Play

I lost a lot of time while we were with our friends Jim and Shar during her last days, so I’m behind schedule on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So the last few days I’ve been pretty much chained to my desk, making up for lost time. But you know what they say […]

I get a lot of e-mail. Not counting the forwarded jokes, cartoons and conspiracy theories, missives from hot horny college girls who want my portly posterior, and that nice man in Africa who wants to share his $20 million dollars with me, I get at between 30 and 50 e-mails on an average day. Sometimes […]

That Other Russell

It’s bad enough having me at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park, but yesterday things got worse when Russell and Debbie Davis arrived in their truck conversion. Dealing with me is a challenge for anyone to have to contend with, but when you throw that other Russell into the mix things can only turn out […]

A Disney Day

You would have thought you were in a Disney movie if you visited our motorhome yesterday. We had to be up before 7 a.m. to pick up my cousin Beverly so we could drive from the far southeast side of Tucson to the far northwest for doctor appointments Terry and Beverly had, starting at 9:30. […]

There’s a reason fulltime RVers write their plans in Jello. Because we never know when anything from weather, to a mechanical breakdown, a health issue, or simply a whim will find us making last minute changes. Isn’t it a wonderful lifestyle having that kind of freedom? Sometimes the Jello stirring is major and sometimes it’s […]
