You can tell it’s mid-March in Florida because the crickets are chirping and the snowbirds are starting to make their migration back up north. Low fuel prices and cold weather in other parts of the country have made for full campgrounds here in the Sunbelt all winter. But in the last few days we’ve seen […]

It’s cold here in Arizona’s White Mountains. Damn cold! The high yesterday was only 57 degrees, and it got down to 35 last night! But that wasn’t as bad as today, when the high is only predicted to be 46, with a low of 29 and rain/snow. And did I mention the strong winds? The […]

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. The fulltime RV lifestyle […]

Too Windy To Play

The weatherman was predicting colder temperatures and high winds yesterday and he sure didn’t lie! The wind started blowing hard in the wee hours of the morning and it never stopped all day long. Sustained winds were between 20 – 25 miles per hour, with gusts to 40, and I don’t think it got over […]

Terry worked like a mad woman all weekend and finished up with the last of the envelope stuffing last night. Today we’ll take them to the post office and the new issue of the Gypsy Journal will be in the mail. It always feels good to get that chore behind us. While she was busy […]

What do you do all day? It’s a question fulltime RVers get asked all the time. The real question is, how can we cram another twelve hours into every day to get all of the things done we want to? RVers have many hobbies that fit perfectly into our lifestyle, offering plenty of opportunities to […]

A Writing Day

After fifteen years of fulltiming we still love it as much as we did the first day, if not more. How could we not love a lifestyle that allows us the freedom ours does? But I have decided that if I ever do stop traveling I will live in the Florida Keys, write half a […]

We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]

After reading my year end blog the other day, I got an e-mail from a very nice man who said he and his wife would love to see some of the places we have visited, but that their fulltiming is limited to summers in the Midwest and Florida in the wintertime because their adult kids […]

Who said Arizona was in the Sunbelt, a place where retirees and snowbirds could while away the winter months in warm comfort? Whoever they were, they lied! It’s been a cold, wet, windy weekend here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson and I’m freezing! I think if I started driving right now and kept […]
