Note: This is a blog post from our days as fulltime RVers, exploring some interesting places on Cape Cod. Yesterday was another gloomy day, but since it was our last chance to play tourist in this area, we decided to take advantage of it. I’m sure glad we did! We drove the 26 miles into […]

Note: We were on the go all day yesterday grocery shopping and taking care of some things, so I didn’t have time to write a blog. So here is a re-post of a blog about our tour of the Winnebago factory in Forest City, Iowa from a few years ago. Yesterday was a horrible day […]

I have shared some of this information before, but after yesterday’s blog question about difficulties finding camping sites, I thought it was a good time to rerun this blog post. I’ll warn you ahead of time, it’s a long blog because there is a lot to cover, but I think you will find it worth […]

Late May Q&A

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 occasionally. Q. It sounds like you are going to have a great time with your […]

We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]

A Town Named Sandwich

We have hitch itch, but since we are not able to travel due to the pandemic, I thought I’d occasionally share some of our previous adventures, such as exploring a uniquely named town in Massachusetts in the summer of 2012. We spent yesterday visiting the Cape Cod town of Sandwich. How can you not like […]

We have hitch itch, but since we are not able to travel due to the pandemic, I thought I’d occasionally share some of our previous adventures, such as exploring the back roads of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, one of our favorite places. This is the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country, and on every back road we […]

Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from January, 2013. I thought we’d start your weekend off with a chuckle or two about what you may see in a campsite near you one of these days. We’ve seen some oddball RVs in our travels around the country, and if you’ve spent much time […]

Note: This story first appeared in the September-October 2012 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Is there a kid anywhere who doesn’t know The Cat in the Hat, Yertle the Turtle, the Grinch, Horton the Elephant, or the Lorax? They all sprang from the mind of Theodor Seuss Geisel, the author, poet, and cartoonist known and […]

Note: This is a repost of a blog from our 2010 travels as fulltime RVers. Terry and I did a lot of exploring along the central coast yesterday, but rather than post one super long blog, I’ll break it up into two or three shorter blogs over the next few days, since the weather is […]

Or even dark of night could keep us from finding funny and oddball mailboxes as we traveled the country in our motorhome, and we’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. I posted a blog with some of our favorites a couple of years ago that was well received, and ever since, readers […]

Note: This is a follow-up post to yesterday’s blog about our first trip to Savannah, in 2011. Yesterday we did a whirlwind tour of Savannah, and though it would take weeks to really do justice to this charming and beautiful city, we saw enough to know that coming back here and spending some time is […]

I received this from Jim O’Briant at Overnight RV Parking last night and wanted to share it here because I know many of my blog readers belong to it. This is a very generous gesture on their part and something that reminds us that even in the darkness, there is always someone to light a […]

Wrapping Up Details

I want to start off today’s blog by saying a big thank you to so many people who already purchased Big Lake Quarterback, shared links to the book with your friends on social media, and sent me messages telling me they already purchased the book and are reading it. Yesterday afternoon, 24 hours after it […]

Miss Terry and I spent more than 18 years traveling from border to border and sea to shining sea during our life as fulltime RVers, and when it was time to hang up the keys, we bought a house on Florida’s central coast. Why, you ask? What made us decide on Florida over other places […]

I love trivia and finding out oddball facts, especially about some of the places where we travel. So today, just for fun, I thought I’d share 5 Weird Things You Never Knew. Mount Rushmore, polygamy and the KKK – There are few things that make a statement about America’s power and glory more than Mount […]

Hobbies For RVers

More than once I have had people ask me what fulltime RVers do to occupy their time when not actually on the road traveling. So I dusted off a blog post from 2015 that covers some of the many hobbies we and other fulltimers found to keep ourselves busy and out of trouble. What do […]

Today let’s discuss problems in the bedroom. Don’t worry. I’m not talking about any difficulties Miss Terry and I have in the boudoir. For a couple of old farts, we seem to manage okay. But apparently not everybody is so lucky, based on some of the emails I’ve been getting lately. The other day I […]

Making Friends

I have often heard the saying that a stranger is just a friend you’ve never met before. I’m not sure if that’s true or not because according to Miss Terry, I’ve never met a stranger. I strike up conversations with people standing in line at the grocery store, sitting in restaurants, or walking down the […]

Here is another story from the Nick Happens file. The RV lifestyle has so much to offer. Your snug home on wheels can take you to wonderful places, you never have to worry about finding a decent motel or be concerned with finding yourself in some local greasy spoon named the Ptomaine Palace when you’re […]
