(Oct. 16, 2018) -- I had a secretary once who used to tell me I was an old stick in the mud because I wasn’t always quick to embrace new ideas and changes. Not that I wouldn’t consider them, but I’ve always felt that if something works, why mess with it? Read More »

Gypsy Journal RV: Cardboard boat museum

(Oct. 9, 2018) -- Whenever we can, we get off the interstate highways and travel the back roads of America. I’ve always said that a Grand Slam at a Denny’s in Paducah, Kentucky isn’t going to be any different than one at a Denny’s in Tucson, Arizona. Read More »

Gypsy Journal RV: Cheaper is not better

(Sept. 11, 2018) -- I’m not much of a mechanic, but I do believe in good maintenance. So whenever one of my vehicles needs something, I get it taken care of as fast as I possibly can.

Gypsy Journal RV: I just don’t get it

(Sept. 4, 2018) -- When we converted our bus, we removed the large air conditioning compressor that was in a compartment behind the driver’s side front wheel. We didn’t need an air conditioner capable of cooling down 47 people, but we did need that space to install a generator. Read More »

Gypsy Journal RV: RV financing perils

(Sept. 3, 2018 ) -- I hear from people all the time who have a good credit rating, have found the perfect RV for their needs, and then run into trouble when it comes to financing. Getting a loan for a big ticket item like an RV can be a challenge, and if you are a fulltimer it can be all but impossible through many lenders. Read More »

Gypsy Journal RV: Cincinnati Fire Museum

(Aug. 28, 2018) -- When I was a youngster I had a couple of uncles who were volunteer firemen. Sometimes we would go down to the fire station and they would let me put on a big fireman’s helmet and climb on the fire trucks, but that was all I needed of that. Read More »
