No, that wasn’t my output in my last writing marathon. Actually, I did 6,150 words on Sunday. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I am referring to the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. And today, I am sharing some pictures of Miss Terry’s output, not mine. While I have […]

Well, are you bored yet? Cabin fever setting in? How many times have you rearranged the items in your pantry? I got an email from a friend yesterday who told me that he’s doing just fine, but his poor wife has run out of yarn and doesn’t know what to do with herself anymore. I […]

More than once I have had people ask me what fulltime RVers do to occupy their time when not actually on the road traveling. So I dusted off a blog post from 2015 that covers some of the many hobbies we and other fulltimers found to keep ourselves busy and out of trouble. What do […]

We may not be fulltime RVers anymore, but we still get hitch itch and like to travel. Since we’re sitting still right now, I’ve been looking over past issues of the Gypsy Journal and thinking about some of our favorite routes from past travels. Here are my ten favorite RV routes.

Note: This story is from my book Overlooked Florida, available on Amazon. Most people know about the big tourist attractions in Key West – Duval Street, the daily Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square, President Truman’s Little White House, Ernest Hemingway’s house, and the Mel Fisher Shipwreck Museum. But there is a lot more to see […]

Note: This is an update from a story in my book Overlooked Florida – 30 Great Florida Destinations You Shouldn’t Miss! On a trip to the Florida Keys we stopped to pay a visit to an old time movie star. Sitting in a cradle at a small marina next to the Holiday Inn in Key […]

Where Did The Year Go?

When I was a kid I always heard grownups say that the older you get, the faster time passes. I didn’t believe that then. How can time go any faster? There are only 60 minutes in an hour, right? And seven days in a week. Nope, time doesn’t speed up. At least I was convinced […]

I expected to set off some fireworks in yesterday’s blog about the woman being thrown out of the campground swimming pool because she had her two emotional support dogs in the water with her, and I wasn’t disappointed. And while most of the blog comments were positive, I did get hammered by email. One blog […]

In a Q&A blog post a while back, somebody asked if there was any place that Terry and I wanted to visit while we were fulltiming but never managed to get to. As I said then, we crossed every place off of our bucket list that we wanted to see. A couple of days later […]

For active RVers who enjoy nature and a little bit of adventure, kayaking is one of the best activities you can consider. Paddling is great exercise and we have done it everywhere from the Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Keys to Midwest lakes and rivers. And once you purchase your kayak and equipment, it’s […]
