 In today’s blog I thought I would answer a few questions that I seem to get on a regular basis. But before I do, let me say that my answers are what work for us. What works for you may be entirely different. The first question is, how do we access Internet on the road, […]

I hear from a lot of new and wannabe RVers who are single and wondering how well they will fit into the RV lifestyle. Some are worried that they will be a third wheel alone among a community of traveling couples. Not at all! I don’t think you could find any more accepting and welcoming […]

A few days ago I told you about an e-mail I got from a 76 year old woman who is a regular blog reader who “ran away from home” at age 76 and is spending her first winter as a solo RV snowbird. This was over the objections of her adult children, who think she […]

While campgrounds are great places to hang out when you want to spend time in an area, many RVers object to paying $25 or more for a place to park overnight when they are on the road from one place to another. That’s why a lot of experienced RV travelers spend frequent nights in Wal-Mart […]

We’ve belonged to the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), Good Sam Club, Bus Nuts, and a few other RV clubs over the years, but we’ve dropped them all except for the very first one we joined, the Escapees RV Club. Based in Livingston, Texas, the Escapees provide all kinds of valuable resources for RVers, from […]

A lot of newbies ask me which RV club(s) they should join, so today I thought I’d talk about some of the clubs and our opinion on them. Keep in mind that what we enjoy and find useful may not be right for you. There are general interest RV clubs such as Good Sam and […]

We always seem to get the same questions from new and wannabe fulltimers. I will be presenting my Fulltimer FAQs seminar at the Escapees Club Escapade rally in Goshen, Indiana May 12-17. For those of you who can’t make it to Escapade (and you really should), hopefully we can answer some of those questions for […]

Note: I get a lot of requests for information on vending at RV rallies. This is an updated article that first ran in the March-April, 2007 issue of the Gypsy Journal. It sounds like a great idea. Find a couple of products, buy a folding table or two, and pay for your travels by selling […]

Today is our last day in Elkhart, and I have no idea where the time went. We got here August 11, and I think this has been the fastest five weeks of my life. We had a lot of things we wanted to get done while we were here, including kayaking on the Saint Joseph […]
