A Slow 90 Miles

The mid-term elections are finally over, and I for one say, not a minute too soon. Now we can finally stop with all of the endless political ads telling us how bad the other guy (or gal) is and get back to advertising from pharmaceutical companies that want us to tell our doctors what meds […]

And A Pier Too!

I think all fulltime RVers occasionally visit a place and think, “Hmmm… if we ever hang up the keys…” In our 15+ years on the road, Terry and I have found three such places; the Rockport-Port Aransas, Texas area; Titusville, Florida; and now St. Augustine. We’re nowhere close to that point in our lives yet, […]

Too Windy To Play

The weatherman was predicting colder temperatures and high winds yesterday and he sure didn’t lie! The wind started blowing hard in the wee hours of the morning and it never stopped all day long. Sustained winds were between 20 – 25 miles per hour, with gusts to 40, and I don’t think it got over […]

A Move South

We really enjoyed our two weeks at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, but all good things must come to an end, and it was time to move on. The great thing about being a fulltime RVer is that when you leave one good place, you can go right to another. And that’s just what we […]

Terry worked like a mad woman all weekend and finished up with the last of the envelope stuffing last night. Today we’ll take them to the post office and the new issue of the Gypsy Journal will be in the mail. It always feels good to get that chore behind us. While she was busy […]

Ruts And Graves

There is an old saying that the only difference between a rut and a grave is the length and depth. I think sometimes RVers need to remember that. Like all people, many of us tend to go the same places by the same routes year after year and lose sight of the very reason we […]

There’s not much new to report here. It rained hard and the wind blew all night Wednesday night, and yesterday I spent over ten hours working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So I thought I’d share a story from a previous edition of the paper, when we visited President Truman’s hideaway from […]

Goodbye Florida

The waste tanks are empty, the fresh water tank is full, and it’s time to go! We arrived in Florida the last day of October, and the last four months have just flown past. We didn’t get to do a lot of things we planned on while we were here, but we’re out of time. […]
