Note: At least two or three times a month I hear from readers who are new to RVing and want to know how membership campgrounds work. Here is a blog post from a while back that covers the topic. The first thing we should do is understand the basic differences between a discount camping club […]

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 […]

There’s a saying in the RV world that if you don’t like the neighbors, you can just move. So we did! Actually our neighbors were fine people, they were just parked too close to us. But that wasn’t their fault, the RV sites in some parts of the A section at the Orlando Thousand Trails […]

We got a rude awakening our first year on the road as fulltime RVers. We were on the Washington coast and discovered that if one doesn’t make reservations well in advance of summer holidays, especially in tourist areas, the chances of finding an available RV site are pretty slim. We called around and got the […]

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope this year brings you much love, much adventure, much joy, good health, and prosperity. For us, the year has just started, and we’ve already shaken up the Jello that every fulltimer writes their plans in. We currently have a two week reservation at the Orlando Thousand Trails, starting on […]

Yesterday was a day for spouting horns and lighthouses. We had a UPS shipment that was scheduled for delivery to the South Jetty NACO campground yesterday, and since we had cancelled our stay there, we wanted to stop by and ask them to hold it for us, if it hadn’t already arrived. It hadn’t, and […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we made the second shortest move we ever have in all of our years as fulltime RVers, just nine miles. Our shortest move was seven miles, between campgrounds down in Benson, Arizona years ago, back when we had just started building our MCI bus conversion. Terry had stashed most of the things we put […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

Winter Returns

Winter has returned to Arizona with a vengeance. All Thursday night, and all day Friday, the wind rocked our motorhome, and the sky was gray and ugly. I’m still not feeling all that great, so it was a good day to stay inside. I did some work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, […]

We are leaving the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve today and are moving about 45 miles back to the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground near Bushnell, Florida. We’ve really enjoyed our time here at the Thousand Trails, and will be returning again many times in the future, but right now its time for an Escapees fix. Yesterday […]
