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. My husband has it in his mind to spend this winter parked on […]

I get a lot of questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, writing and self-publishing, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all of them individually, sometimes I also share some here. Q. At one of your rallies in Ohio there […]

If you are hanging out on the Texas Gulf Coast right now you should probably either hit the road or batten down the hatches because you’re gonna get wet! The weatherman here in Florida says tropical depression Harvey is headed toward the Texas coast and very likely will increase in strength before it gets there […]

It sounds like we are in a war zone here in northern Indiana. There have been fireworks going off all over the place for several days now, and it will probably continue into Tuesday. They are legal here and folks are having a great time setting them off. They don’t really bother me, though I […]

Note: We are revisiting some of our favorite old places that we’ve been to before, and sharing some of their stories again from our previous visits. At the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, we found an impressive collection of nautical exhibits that tell the story of North Carolina’s seafaring past, and how it has […]

Unresolved Conflicts

In a blog about being two-gether that I wrote few months ago, I said that communication and compromise are necessary to work out problems in any relationship, and especially for an RVing couple. I think that many times problems arise because someone doesn’t understand what their partner needs or wants, and this may be because […]

Two In One Week

I crossed two things off my bucket list this week. Well, at least 1½. First, I had a #1 book on Amazon, and yesterday I caught a saltwater fish from a pier. How many of us get to accomplish two milestones in such a short time? While bridges scare me, for some weird reason I […]

We thought about staying at North River Campground near Shawboro, North Carolina longer because we really liked the campground and I would have liked to have toured the Museum of the Albemarle in nearby Elizabeth City. But they are having their annual seafood festival this week and we didn’t have advance reservations, so it was […]

Greg Fixed It

In yesterday’s blog I wished my friend Greg White happy birthday and sung his praises, and here I go again, because he has done it again. A couple of weeks ago I reported that the drum on our Splendide washer/dryer combo had stopped turning, though it had power and the pump runs. After going through […]

The Curse Is Broken

We put in a long day of driving yesterday but it was worth it to get out of the gray and gloomy Pacific Northwest. We were beginning to grow moss on our webbed toes. After filling our diesel tank at the Shell station in Sutherlin, at $3.79 a gallon, we got on Interstate 5 and […]

Miss Terry and I have what I would call an extraordinary marriage. Not only are we in love with each other, we are and have been best friends since the day we get together. The first thing we say to each other when we wake up in the morning is “I love you” and it’s […]

A Lot Going On

It was still dark when Terry’s sister Lisa picked her up yesterday morning for the drive to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale. Her dad came though his biopsy fine. There was a concern that it could have collapsed his lung, in which case he would have been kept in the hospital. But that didn’t happen […]

More rain had been predicted for yesterday, but while we had heavy cloud cover for much of the day, it stayed dry. Or at least as dry as it can be when the humidity is 94%. I’m not making that up folks, you can almost reach out and touch the moisture in the air. I’m […]

Can You Say Yuck?

I’ve seen a lot of yucky things in our time on the road as fulltime RVers. I’ve seen sewer hoses come loose and spray a big stinky mess all over the place; I’ve seen people leave dump stations so filthy that any self-respecting hound dog that wandered by would not raise his leg on them; […]

We publish several guides to help make the RV lifestyle less expensive and easier, including our Guide To Free Campgrounds & Overnight Parking Places, our Casino Camping guide, and the Guide To Public RV Dump Stations, to name just a few. They can all be found on our online bookstore, along with a lot of […]

I have to admit that I am very pleasantly surprised at the reaction to our new Digital Edition of the Gypsy Journal. In the first 24 hours after I wrote in yesterday’s blog that subscriptions were available, we received 30 orders. I can see my pal Chris Guld over at Geeks on Tour just simpering […]
