One of the good things about publishing the Gypsy Journal and this blog is that I was always being offered products to try out, with the manufacturer hoping for a good review. Of course, when I told them that if I liked the item I would tell the world why, but if I thought it […]

Is It Monday Yet?

Most working people dread Monday morning because it is the start of another long work week. Mondays don’t bother me because I work every day of the week. Some days I work more than others, but every day I at least write a blog, and I am usually working on a book, or working on […]

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. Q. Why did you stop using your bus conversion? I couldn’t find a reference to […]

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. I’m 72 and wondering if it’s “too late” for me, as much as […]

After our very long day driving through West Virginia that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, we were both exhausted and slept very well at the Hampton Inn in Wytheville, Virginia. One thing Terry and I discovered on the trip is that king size beds seem to be the norm in hotel rooms these days. […]

Longtime readers of our Gypsy Journal RV newspaper may remember that several years ago we were heading west on Interstate 10 in Texas when the right front tire of our MCI bus conversion literally exploded. I was doing about 65 mph and the bus immediately started heading toward the ditch on the right side of […]

Let’s have a little experiment today. I’m going to tell you three things and write a short paragraph about each of them. Only one of those things is true. It’s up to you to decide which one it is. Okay, ready to play? 1) I seldom play the lottery because the odds of winning are […]

Note: This is a repost of a blog from a few years ago, and I still hear these wild tales now and then. I guess when you fulltimed for as many years as we did and you publish an RV newspaper and blog, people seem to think that you’re some kind of expert. We all […]

A Guy’s RV

We have seen some oddball RVs in our time, everything from wacky school bus conversions that looked like 1960s hippy creations to RVs made out of old ambulances, and even a hearse once. Not to mention some very unique ones built on heavy duty truck chassis that looked like log cabins. I think if it […]

Getting A Lot Done

We spent yesterday getting a lot of little chores done around the house that we wanted to have out of the way before we start prepping the motorhome for traveling. For some reason, the night before, my phone kept chirping with notifications of emails and messages received, to the point where I finally turned it […]
