Most RVers are really nice people, but they don’t make you take a personality test before they let you buy one of these things, and like every aspect of life, there are a few snobs out there, as well as clods and outright idiots. I’m rather well known in the RV world because of the […]

Note: We are making our way through Texas and I don’t have time to write a full blog, so here is another story from the Nick Happens file. I try to be a nice guy. I really am not all that hard to get along with. Just ask any of my ex-wives. My motto is […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]

New Or Old?

Note: Because this is a topic that comes up often, I thought I would brush off and repost this blog from March, 2013. I have been thinking about living and traveling in an RV and how different the RV lifestyle can be among different fulltimers and snowbirds. We know many RVers who enjoy seeking out […]

It’s A Wet Heat

Several people have asked me how we are handling our first full summer here in Florida, and if the heat and humidity are getting to us. We are actually doing quite well. Every day it gets into the upper 80s or low 90s and humidity is somewhere about the same, but it’s a wet heat. […]

I Need A Helmet

I’ve spent some time wearing helmets in my life. When I got my first motorcycle, much to the dismay of both of my parents, one promise I made them was that I would never ride it unless I was wearing a helmet. I know there are some bikers who frown on helmets and say the […]

Yes, I Really Do

Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]

We made some wonderful memories and met some amazing people during our years as fulltime RVers. If nothing else, there was never a dull moment! The other day our friend Lynette Milligan McHenry had this photo on her Facebook wall, and it sure got a lot of laughs. This was during our Indiana Gypsy Journal […]

Even More Potpourri

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Wow, it’s over already? That was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2016 like for us? We started the year in Tucson, Arizona, where I was getting follow-up treatment at the VA hospital for a medical issue that […]
