I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here, usually because they are ones I receive more than once from different people.

I think yesterday was one of those days when the stars were all aligned just right or something. I need more days like that. We had some orders to mail out, so in the early afternoon I went to the post office in Elkhart. When we were in Tuscaloosa, Alabama a couple of weeks ago […]

We were up by 7 AM yesterday, getting ready to hit the road. I had the water and sewer disconnected and Terry had the inside of the motorhome pretty much ready to roll when Travis and Geli got there about 8:30 to see us off. Goodbyes are always the hardest part of the RV lifestyle […]

One topic that comes up a lot when fulltime RVers and wannabe RVers meet, and a question that I often get, is what size RV is best.

Longtime blog readers know that I have not been a big fan of the Rio Grande Valley, the Texas RV mecca that is home to thousands of Winter Texans. But I have to admit, our stay here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission has me rethinking my previous position on the place. We came […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Often with fulltiming couples […]

It’s been a while since I did a blog about oddball RVs and some folks have asked if I had any new ones to share. As a matter of fact, I do! Here are several that readers have sent me or I’ve found online. We’ll start with a real oldie, an expanding RV from 1934, […]

We were busy picking up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal from our printer in Michigan yesterday and getting it ready to mail out to our subscribers, so I am posting a story that first ran in the July-August, 2008 issue of the Gypsy Journal. You don’t have to be a hunter to appreciate […]
