In a blog post a couple of days ago titled The Best Laid Plans, I wrote that the coach (starting) batteries in our motorhome needed replacing, and that the Lifeline AGM house batteries had dropped very low from phantom loads while the RV has been parked in our community’s storage yard for the last few […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Terry and I started fulltiming in our mid-40s, a couple of people who are in that age range now wrote to ask me how we could afford to do that. They wanted to know if we sold a business or got rich in the stock market or something […]

With winter behind us and the busy travel season fast approaching, I know a lot of RVers are starting to think about where they are going to go this summer. So today I thought I would talk a little bit about RV trip planning. There are many ways to plan your RV travels. Some people […]

Yesterday was a busy day at home, and I got quite a bit accomplished. The first order of business was to deal with a backlog of emails that piled up while I was busy getting registered at the Veterans Administration medical clinic in Daytona Beach on Tuesday. And as always, the first thing I did […]

Thank you to everyone who sent emails, instant messages, Facebook messages, and texts when yesterday’s blog did not post. I had the blog set up to automatically post at two minutes after midnight, and when I went to bed about 11:45 everything looked okay. I seldom go to bed that early, and I never go […]

Except for putting the front page photo in place and then printing it out to be proofed, which I will do this morning, the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is pretty much done. And since that’s about all I’ve been doing lately and I don’t have anything else to write about today, I thought […]

After writing about the couple who were offered a workcamping position in Branson, Missouri that was far from equitable, I received some questions from blog readers about workamping. One was how hard is it to find workcamping jobs, and where do you look for them? One of the best resources around is Workamper News. In […]

After I posted my Valentine’s Day blog about my parents, longtime reader Bettie Kincaid said it reminded her of another blog I did on our anniversary last year, titled Our Love Story, and said maybe romance ran in the Russell family. She added that she and her husband fulltimed for two years but decided to […]

Last month I shared ten questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers that I have received Q. Do you and Terry plan to do any traveling this year, and if so, where will you go? A. Yes, we will definitely be traveling, though we don’t have any set schedule at this point. We will […]
