I Broke It!

Anybody who knows me well knows that I can keep a platoon of mechanics and handymen busy with all of the things I mess up in the course of a day. But yesterday I impressed even myself. Just by joining RVillage, the great new social network for RVers, I crashed the whole thing! Call me […]

How Much You Got?

One of the most common questions I get about the fulltime RV lifestyle is, “How much does it cost?” The answer is both simple and complex. The simple answer is, “How much you got?” The fulltime lifestyle does not have to be expensive, but if you’ve got it, you can spend it. We know some […]

I figure by now you’re pretty sick of me telling you that I spent the day at my desk fighting our slow internet connection and working on getting the shopping carts working for our back issues. But that’s pretty much what I did, except for posting a new indie author interview with fulltime RVer Jaimie […]

I got an e-mail from somebody yesterday that brought to mind something my friend Al Hesselbart, the historian for the RV Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, has mentioned before. The lady who contacted me said that they were considering a Thousand Trails campground membership, and were concerned because their Prevost bus conversion was an all electric […]

To Each His Own

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when three different people sent me rather terse e-mails after reading yesterday’s blog, in which I said that we don’t like the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, which is a popular snowbird roost for thousands of RVers, who return there year after year. One lady said “I don’t […]

Last Sunday, there was one of those marathons on one of the satellite TV channels, where they play one episode after another of the same show. In this case, it was How The Lottery Changed My Life, in which they showcased people who had won anywhere from one to hundreds of millions of dollars in […]

And Away We Go!

We’ve had all the fun we can have, or at least all the fun we have time to have, and today we plan to hit the road. There were a lot of things that we didn’t get done while we’ve been here in Florida, but we have to be in Yuma in mid-February to get […]

Miss Terry was still feeling pretty yucky yesterday, so we stayed home and didn’t do a whole lot of anything. I wrote a couple of articles for the next issue of the Gypsy Journal, answered a few e-mails, and called a subscriber who also wants to tow a Ford Explorer behind his motorhome, and was […]

After reading yesterday’s blog, longtime reader Gene Teggatz suggested that maybe I need to consider having a sign made that says “Visitors Welcome Today” and a second sign that says “Visitors Not Welcome Today,” or perhaps a more diplomatic one saying “Please let me get some work done today.” Really, we don’t mind visitors dropping […]

I have decided not to attempt to sell our bus and find a used rig as a replacement. Instead, today we are placing our order for a new 2009 custom built 45 foot Prevost coach with triple slides and every option. We have gone with a beautiful black and gold custom paint job, and the […]
