As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, Michele Henry from Phoenix Commercial Paint peeled the faded, chipped up graphic stripe off of our Winnebago motorhome and repainted it in the original color. After getting the old stripe off, Michele and her crew moved the RV into their paint booth and masked off the area to be […]

I was listening to one of comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s segments on Blue Collar Radio on Sirius yesterday, and he said comedians don’t have to make up jokes, all they have to do is look around them and write down what they see. I agree completely.   We have seen so much insanity and nonsense just going […]

Terry and I want to thank all of you who left comments or sent us congratulatory e-mails in response to yesterday’s blog about our motorhome purchase. To be honest, Miss Terry had some real misgivings, not about the Winnebago itself, but about what the reaction might be from some of our readers. As longtime blog […]

As most of my regular blog readers know, we have been looking for an RV to replace our faithful old MCI bus conversion. We have lived in the bus for 8 years and loved it, but our needs have changed and we needed something different. Our criteria was a 38 to 40 foot diesel pusher, with […]

Friday morning we left Traverse City, Michigan about 9:30 a.m. and drove about 56 miles south on State Route 37, a nice two lane road that passed through the Manistee National Forest, a land of dense trees and few people. There were a scattering of canoe and kayak rental places along the slow moving Manistee […]

Living on limited electric power seems to be a major concern for many RVers, and I have never understood why. Time and time again I have had people ask when registering for our Gypsy Gathering rallies if we will have 50 amp power available. When I tell them that (depending on the location) we will […]

We left Bowling Green State University Friday morning, and though I had been worried that we might get stuck in the field where we were parked, we got out just fine. We stopped for fuel, then drove north about ten miles on Interstate 75, skirted the west edge of Toledo on Interstate 475, then picked […]

It is still incredibly hot here in northern Indiana, and it looks like the heat wave will hang on for several more days, at least. I love the classic looks of Airstream travel trailers, and even though one would not work for our lifestyle, I can’t pass one without giving it a second look. We […]

If you don’t like the weather in the Midwest, wait ten minutes and it will probably change. A few days ago I was complaining in the blog that it looked and felt like winter, and yesterday it was so hot and humid, it felt like we were in the Amazon. Finally, the new issue of […]

Okay, I goofed, and I know it’s my fault. But I’m still mad about it. A week or so ago we were discussing life insurance, and I logged onto Geico’s website to get a quote. The form I filled out included my telephone number, and ever since I get at least one, and usually two […]
