Miss Terry has been keeping the folks at the post office busy, sending out refund checks for the unused portions of people’s subscriptions to the Gypsy Journal. If you were a subscriber, please e-mail me your current mailing address at so we can process your refund.

We have been amazed at how many people have told us to keep the refund and enjoy a nice dinner, or at least tip the waitress with what they had coming back. That is much appreciated.

I’ve had several inquiries from people wanting to know if back issues of the Gypsy Journal are still available. Yes, we have 15 years of back issues (2003 – 2017) full of great travel stories and RV tips available in PDF format. We sell them on a USB thumb drive for $75, which includes shipping. You can order by logging onto and making payment to or you can use the PayPal button below to place your order.

People have also been asking me if we will still be selling our 8-IN-1 e-book with all eight of our best selling booklets – Gypsy Journal’s Guide To Free Campgrounds & Overnight Parking Spots, Gypsy Journal’s Guide to RV Good Guys, Gypsy Journal’s Guide to Public RV Dump Stations, RVers Guide To Fairgrounds Camping, Guide to Favorite Restaurants RVers Will Love, Guide to RV Parks With WiFi, Hitching Post, and RVers Guide ‘s To Casino Parking. Yes, they are also still available in PDF format for $24.95 and are e-mailed to you. Again, you can order by logging onto and making payment to or you can use the PayPal button below to place your order.

And, in honor of Veterans Day, today through Monday we are sending our Overnight Camping With The VFW guide to any VFW members who want one for free. It lists VFW posts nationwide that allow traveling VFW members to park overnight for free or a small donation. Again, this guide is free to VFW members for a limited time only. To request a copy, email me at

Also, today I want to tell you about a great new book, Lone Star Lawless: 14 Texas Tales of Crime. Several of my author friends from Texas collaborated to put together a collection of stories that explore the dark side of the Lone Star State. They include tales of cowboys and criminals, girlfriends and grifters, morticians, motel clerks, and even a big, bad wolf! There is some fine writing from some fine people here, folks, including Valerie Chandler, George Wier, Manning Wolfe, and Laura Oles. And best of all, they did this to help their fellow man. All profits from the book will go to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Yeah, because that’s how my friends roll! They believe in giving something back to the world. Buy a copy. It’s for a good cause, and I guarantee you will be in for some great reading.
