Ken Harris of Liverpool, New York sent this to us quite some time ago and we got a chuckle out of it! You know you’re RV trash when: *They post signs at WalMart saying your RV is not welcome! *You call the garbage cans at rest areas “dump stations.” *You “found” most of your RV […]

It seems like some days fuel prices are climbing even faster than the mercury in an Arizona thermometer in July. RVers only have two choices, pay it or park it. Most have no intention of getting off the road, but with a little effort and planning, hopefully, we can lessen the impact of today’s outrageous […]

The thermometer has been flirting with the 100 degree mark, which is a reason a lot of people stay out of Florida in the summer. The good news is that there is less traffic on the roads, and stores and restaurants are not very crowded. The bad news is that it’s too bloody hot to […]

After a few weeks of testing and adjusting to make sure they had things just right, yesterday afternoon we returned to Connect Hearing in New Smyrna Beach and Beverly turned in the loaner units and picked up her new hearing aids. I had no idea how much goes into getting properly fitted and adjusted for […]

If you are a fulltime RVer today is the start of a great time of year for you. Labor Day ended the busy summer camping season, the kids are all back in school, and life starts moving at a slower pace at your local RV park. You’ve got about nine months to enjoy it, so […]

You all know what that is, right? That’s all the misinformation, innuendo, and BS that anybody associated with politics and the media puts out these days. Well, apparently I’m just as guilty as the rest of them. But in my defense, I really couldn’t help it. After all, besides publishing the Gypsy Journal for the […]

For the last couple of days I have been involved in an email exchange with a couple who are brand-new fulltimers trying to adjust to life on the road. They are currently dry camping in the desert a couple of miles north of Quartzsite, Arizona and are freaking out about being in such a different […]

I got emails from two different readers yesterday thanking me for mentioning several times that we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full, and whenever I park the motorhome for more than an overnight stay, I like to go into a campground with a full tank of fuel. One couple is somewhere […]

How Hot Is It?

A heat wave has been baking the upper Midwest, with temperatures here in northern Indiana in the 90s. Every newscast is warning people to be sure to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid strenuous activity whenever possible. So how hot is it? Yesterday I saw two trees fighting over a dog.

Like a lot of kids from my generation, I was a Boy Scout at one time. I enjoyed our weekly troop meetings and camping expeditions. Well, except for one scary incident when our leader took us on a hike across a frozen lake in Ohio. We were halfway across when I fell through the ice. […]
