Mid-May Q&A

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, my writing activities, 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 occasionally.

Q. Nick, have you done an internet search for remote-controlled lawnmowers? You can sit on your porch and mow the steepest lawn using a joystick.

A. No, but I will now. 🙂

Q. I have signed up for your free drawings for one of the RV camping journals every time but have never been lucky enough to get drawn. Can I buy one on Amazon or someplace else online?

A. Yes, you can purchase them on Amazon, or even better, Barbara House, who publishes the camping journals, has set up a special 20% discount for my blog readers on her website. It’s good for everything there, not just the RV journals. You can access it at this link.

Q. I know you are into guns, and I have a question. My husband’s birthday is coming up and he has always wanted a gun called a Kimber. It’s a handgun is all I know about them. I asked a neighbor who is a security guard and he said they are overpriced junk. Do you know anything about them?

A. Your security guard neighbor doesn’t have a clue. Kimbers are far from junk. They are top quality handguns, and their price reflects that. Between Terry and I, we have six Kimbers and they are all excellent. But you need to find out what kind of Kimber your husband wants. They make both semiautomatic pistols and revolvers in many different sizes and calibers for many different uses.

Q. Now that it’s getting so hot in Alabama, are you regretting your decision to move there?

A. No, it’s just as hot all summer long in Florida, too. Every place in the country has something negative about it, whether it be hot summers, cold winters, tornadoes or hurricanes, traffic jams or mudslides. Choose your poison.

Q. Nick, I know you joke around a lot, but I really have to ask. Does Miss Terry get upset when you talk about buying her a riding lawnmower or a rototiller or tools instead of jewelry or something romantic?

A. Terry can have anything she wants. She has a few pieces of jewelry, but she is not into things like that. She really does love tools and is quite good with them. Better than I will ever be, for sure. She also loves kitchenware and gadgets for the kitchen and has a good supply of things like that.

Q. We met a very nice man named Carey McGleish at one of your Gypsy Journal rallies in Arizona and really hit it off with him. I know that at one time he was snowbirding at a campground somewhere on Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Yuma, but we have lost touch. Are you still in contact? If so, could you please give him our e-mail address and tell him Jim and Gail from Pennsylvania would like to reconnect?

A. Unfortunately, we have not heard from Carey in quite a few years. We miss him. I see he has a Facebook page, but no posts since 2017.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us. I’m so confused.

  1. Hi Russells. May I ask out of curiosity why 2 people need 6 Kimber guns and perhaps other ones as well. Are they all locked in gun safes?
    Best wishes for your new life on the farm and near your son and DIL. A wise , life- changing move!
