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 occasionally. Q. We are new to the RV life and not sure what the accepted […]

One of the good things about publishing the Gypsy Journal and this blog is that I was always being offered products to try out, with the manufacturer hoping for a good review. Of course, when I told them that if I liked the item I would tell the world why, but if I thought it […]

Longtime readers of our Gypsy Journal RV newspaper may remember that several years ago we were heading west on Interstate 10 in Texas when the right front tire of our MCI bus conversion literally exploded.

When I asked blog readers to share some of their RV tips, you folks responded with some great ideas. Some were things I’ve heard of before but had forgotten about, and others were new to me. Hopefully you will find some of them useful. Larry Merritt said before he ever backs into an RV site […]

It’s been a writing marathon for the last few days for me. I got 8,000 words done Tuesday, and another 8,000 yesterday, and finished my newest book, Big Lake Tragedy. Today I will give it a final read-through and make any corrections that I see, then I will print it out so Miss Terry can […]
