Yet Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. Is there any other kind? It doesn’t seem like it! Terry had ordered a new pair of glasses from Pearle Vision in Mishawaka a few days ago and they told us they would be ready in about two weeks. But they called Tuesday  to tell us they were […]

Tech Toys & Topics

My pals Ron and Brenda Speidel call me Gadget Boy for good reason; I do love my toys! I’m not as bad (or maybe as wealthy) as my friend Phil May from TechnoRV, who always seems to have something new that I didn’t know I couldn’t live without, but I do appreciate things that make […]

Thanks to all of you who wrote with get well wishes. I appreciate it. I think a combination of side affects from a new medicine my doctor put me on, as well as stress from being drawn into some family drama I really don’t want to deal with, that combined to knock my feet out […]

Running the world’s only nationally distributed RV publication, (or any publication that I know of) that is produced 100% on the road, requires a lot of high tech equipment, from digital cameras, to laptop computers, to wireless internet air cards, and cellular telephones. But if I had to name the one thing that contributes to […]

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 […]

We spent yesterday driving along U.S. Highway 90, which parallels the Gulf beaches here in Mississippi. The eye of the Hurricane Katrina came ashore here, back in 2005, and decimated the region. We wanted to see how much damage was still evident, and what had changed in the wake of that disaster. It was an […]

A Four Hour Lunch

We did a lot of research before we ever left our hometown in Arizona to become fulltime RVers, and one of the things that came out of that research was our decision to join the Passport America discount camping club. Our membership has served us well in our 12+ years on the road. In fact, we […]

My annual checkup at the V.A. hospital here in Lexington, Kentucky was scheduled for 10 a.m. yesterday, but we arrived a half hour early, and within about 5 minutes I was in an exam room where a nurse took my vitals, and then she took me in to see my doctor. He read over my […]

Marathon Driving

Yesterday was another one of those marathon driving days that RVers are not supposed to do, but that we find ourselves doing quite often. We do this sometimes when we have to get from Point A to Point B, and don’t have time to stop and play along the way. It’s not our preferred mode […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Virginia, and like much of our time here, it started out gray and chilly. We drove into Gloucester Courthouse and picked up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal from the printer and got it loaded into the van. They did a pretty good job, and we’ll use […]

It started raining early yesterday morning, and by about 4 a.m. it was really coming down hard. The storm lasted all day; sometimes the rain would ease up to just a sprinkle for a while, and then it would start pouring all over again. It was a good day to stay home and get caught […]

I got the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished yesterday and we dropped it off at the printer a little before 5 p.m. If all goes according to schedule, we’ll pick it up late today or tomorrow morning, and the next task will be to get it mailed out to all of our subscribers […]

Yesterday we drove over to the Giant Center in Hershey to pick up our name tags and parking pass for the Hershey RV Show. It was a lesson in frustration. First, there had been some miscommunication about what the show expected from me, in terms of being a speaker, as well as our vendor booth. […]

We’ve been Geeked! A couple of days before we left Elkhart Campground, Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour interviewed us for one of their Gabbing With The Geeks podcasts. We talked about the Gypsy Journal and how computer technology makes it possible for us to live and run our business on the road. […]
