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 […]

I’ve been working hard to finish my new Big Lake book, so instead of boring you with the details of that, today I thought I’d share some RV goodies that we find useful and add to our comfort and safety level. Strike-Hold: We discovered this amazing product on Ken and Marilyn Murphy’s vendor table at […]

If you don’t like the weather in northern Indiana this time of year, just wait a day or two and it will change. Usually for the worse. Last week it was in the 80s for a couple of days and then it got cold and rainy again. The high yesterday was 53o and it rained […]

Yesterday was the first day of the Escapees 54th Escapade rally here at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana and it was a busy day. We were up by 7 a.m. and in our vendor booth before 9, ready to do business as the crowds started flocking in. And flock they did. There were very few […]

Congratulations to Corkey Bergamo, winner of an audiobook of Going Home With A Cat And A Ghost in this this week’s Gypsy Journal drawing. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon. We were up early yesterday morning and getting ready for our trip to Escapade. After a quick look at e-mail I dumped the holding […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at my daughter Tiffany’s place but it’s time to say goodbye. The road is calling and we must answer. I’ve always said that the hardest part of the fulltime RV lifestyle is saying goodbye to the people we love. But the greatest part is that we get to come […]

After spending so much of our time at the hospital and then hospice lately, yesterday we finally had a chance to slow down a little bit and start getting back to normal. Or at least what is normal for us. We slept in a little bit, then spent most of the day catching up on […]

There was a thread on one of the Facebook RV pages yesterday asking what fulltimers carry in their tow cars or the back of the trucks they pull their trailers with. Some of the responses were interesting, ranging from absolutely nothing to everything but the kitchen sink. Most fulltimers we know who drive motorhomes use […]

Happy Birthday America! Isn’t it wonderful to live free in the greatest country the world has ever known? I don’t know about you, but as the old Lee Greenwood song proclaims, I truly am proud to be an American. Today is the last day of the Escapees RV Club Escapade rally, and following a catered […]

I wanted to announce that I just signed a multi-movie contract with MGM yesterday to turn my first Big Lake mystery novel into a feature film starring Tom Cruise as Sheriff Jim Weber and Scarlett Johansson as his love interest, deputy Robyn Fuchette. The mid-six figure deal is going to require a lot of our […]
