The title of today’s blog says it all. After months of trying to get our SimpliSafe home security system to work, more calls to their tech support people that I could begin to count, where they insisted I jump through one hoop after another, replacing the network card, and trying four or five different base […]

Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books.

Any parent knows that we often don’t see the changes as our children grow up. But when we look back at old pictures we wonder how things changed so fast. Looking back over our 17+ years as fulltime RVers, I’m amazed at the changes we have seen. Most of them good, some not so good. […]
