Frugal Or Cheap?

I got an e-mail yesterday from a reader who asked why anyone would consider spending a night at a WalMart, truck stop, or highway rest area when there are so many campgrounds around the country. She asked if the RVers who do this are all cheapskates, or it there is ever a legitimate reason to […]

A few days ago I posted a blog about Camping With The Elks that was well received so today I thought I’d tell you about two other low cost alternatives to traditional campgrounds. We first met Don and Kim Greene, founders of Harvest Hosts, at one of our Gypsy Journal rallies years ago when they […]

Yesterday was our last full day in Ohio, and what a full day it was! We crammed a lot into just a few hours. Terry and I got up early and went back to the Caesar Creek Flea Market again. This time we only browsed the outdoor vendors, since they had all kinds of interesting […]

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 […]

There always seems to be something going on here at the Pima County Fairgrounds, and staying here in their RV park we get a front row seat for much of the activity. Or inactivity, occasionally. This weekend alone there are three events going on – a horse show, a Spa and Patio show, and an […]

Thanks for all of the nice anniversary wishes everybody sent us as blog comments, e-mails, and on Facebook. You all make us feel very, very loved. Except for writing this blog, I didn’t do a lick of work yesterday. We slept in, then stayed in bed and snuggled a while, talking about the last fifteen […]

Trip Preparations

Most of yesterday was spent getting ready for our trip to Massachusetts, which begins today. When your house has wheels under it and you’ve been sitting still for a few weeks, things have to be put away, secured so they don’t move around while in transit, and tidied up. Okay, let’s be honest, most of […]

My mom used to say that it takes all kinds to make the world go around, and in my time, I’ve sure met a lot of them! People who know me always say that I seem to attract people who are, shall we say, on the edge? My belief is that there is a group […]

We were up bright and early again yesterday morning, a nasty habit we’re going to have to work hard to break. The inch of snow that had been predicted did not show up, and we were both relieved to see that. But it was still darned cold, and Terry flipped the engine heater on to […]

I May Live After All

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails hoping I would get well soon. I think I’ve finally turned the corner, and I may live after all. But there was a while there when only the hope of death was keeping me alive! Except for my allergy to onions and my bad back, […]
