Note: I have already shared some of our activities while we were in Ohio and the trip there from Florida in previous blog posts. Now I will do several posts telling you a bit about our trip home. We were glad we got out of the Midwest when we did because winter arrived about the […]

There are some people who come into our lives and stay a while before moving on, and over time they become no more than a faint memory. And there are others who make an impact that lasts forever. One of those people is a man named Gary Chandler. Gary’s grandparents were good friends of my […]

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 […]

When I lived in the Midwest, and in the Rocky Mountain West, I was familiar with droughts. They were a common occurrence, and it was disconcerting to sit around watching the grass turn brown and the forests become tinder dry. When we lived on the Mogollon Rim in northern Arizona’s high country, we were in […]

For the last few days I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages from folks that are at the Escapees Escapade RV rally in Essex Junction, Vermont, saying how much they miss us and wish we were there. We miss all of you, too, and we are sorry we couldn’t make it. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets […]

Well, none of my friends or relatives called to tell me they had won the big Powerball drawing and wanted to split the money with me, so I spent yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, you heard that before. That’s pretty much all we’ve been doing this week. […]

A lot of people have e-mailed, telling me that we have to go to Disney World and Epcot while we’re at the Clermont Thousand Trails preserve. Sorry, but it isn’t going to happen. I don’t do mice, even ones named Mickey. When I was a kid, we spent almost a year living within a five […]

Well, it’s official, we have a new daughter in our family, and what a beautiful young lady she is! This is Terry’s new daughter-in-law, Leslie Wyse. Have you ever seen a more beautiful bride? The wedding was held at the Eagle-Vale Pavilion, and what a beautiful setting it was! Here are twin brothers Casey and […]

There is a phenomenon that takes place this time of year that has mystified me ever since we became fulltime RVers over ten years ago, and that is getting income taxes filed. No, I understand the process. What confuses me is why people would leave a place like sunny Arizona and return to cold states […]

Several people have been confused by when I post the blog, because now that we are in the Midwest, it appears online before midnight out west, with the next day’s date on it. This has come up before, so hopefully I can explain it. I try to post the blog as close to midnight as […]
