Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m not really a Hank Williams fan. Though I love country music, his “twangy” style just never caught my fancy. But who can not appreciate the contributions he made to the American music scene? Over 50 years after his untimely death, Hank Williams has an ever growing legion of fans, his […]

We met some interesting people in our 18 years as fulltime RVers running a business on the road. Most have been nice, but some have been, shall we say, interesting? Challenging? Unique? Early in our fulltime adventure we had signs on our truck that said Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper. Once, we were approached by […]

A while back I posted a link to a blog titled A Violent Encounter about our experience returning to our RV one night while we were parked at a repair shop and coming face to face with an armed burglar. As I wrote when I first reported on our crime, RVing is a safe activity […]

Whether you are spending today at home with family or in an RV park somewhere sharing a community meal, Terry and I want to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving. Life has its ups and downs for all of us, but over all we have been very blessed, and we are thankful for that. When we […]

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 […]

Yesterday blog reader Richard Sullivan wrote to tell me about an incident that happened while he was backing his motorhome into their site at an RV park. He said he was doing just fine with his wife guiding him as he backed up. Then two little boys came out of nowhere and ran directly behind […]
