Because I publish the Gypsy Journal RV newspaper and a daily RV blog, and give seminars on RVing and the RV lifestyle, I get a lot of requests for information on RV related issues, everything from choosing the best RV, to working on the road, RV insurance and saving money on the road. Another topic […]

What can I say about the George Zimmerman case that hasn’t been said already? Whether you agree with the jury’s decision or not, we live under a system of laws, and that system has gone through the process and the jury found the man not guilty based upon the evidence presented to them at the […]

Not since the Casey Anthony trial in Florida a couple of years ago has a murder trial seized the country’s attention like the Jodi Arias case. Unless you’ve been in outer space or stuck on a desert island somewhere, you probably already know that Arias killed her sometimes lover Travis Alexander in June, 2008 by […]

Last week, the news here in Florida was full of the story of a man who pulled a gun at a Panama City school board meeting and threatened several members of the board before the school’s security chief, Mike Jones, shot him.

It seems like every week or two, some new internet myth makes the rounds, and I get swamped with forwarded e-mails from readers who want me to be aware of the latest threat to life as we know it. Not to mention the same old crap that gets recycled over and over again, because somebody […]

At the risk of offending a lot of Second Amendment supporters, I think Arizona’s new law allowing any U.S. citizen age 21 or older, who is not a convicted felon or otherwise prohibited from owning a gun, to carry a concealed handgun is a mistake. For years Arizona has had a concealed carry law that […]

Apparently they don’t have enough to do with their time, what with chasing down illegal aliens and catching drug smugglers, so now U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents have decided to stop the flow of toys into the country. Recently, officers from those two agencies seized a shipment of toy Airsoft pellet guns, claiming that […]

I’m sure by now most of you know that Friday night my wife and I returned to our motorhome to find an armed burglar in the process of ransacking our home on wheels. If you happened to miss that, rather than go through the whole story here, you can read two Nick’s Blog entries about […]
