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 […]

Early in our fulltime RVing life, Terry and I worked a lot of RV rallies as vendors, selling our camping guides and subscriptions to the Gypsy Journal. Then we got involved with teaching at Life on Wheels and there was no time to follow the rally circuit. By the time Life on Wheels had ended, […]

Yesterday was the first day of the Escapade RV rally and a short but busy vending day for us. The Market area opened at 9 a.m., but we were there a few minutes early to get things laid out on our table. Here is Miss Terry, ready to greet customers and take care of business. […]

Well, unfortunately, we didn’t get the good news we had hoped for about the nodule in Terry’s dad’s lung, so Monday he has an appointment with a surgeon at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale to discuss the treatment options.

After fulltiming for fourteen years now, you’d think that we’d have this thing down to a science by now. But for whatever reason, after we have been sitting still for a while, Terry and I never sleep well the night before setting out on a trip. It’s not nerves, we love traveling in our RV […]

I talked to a reader yesterday who is in the process of buying a motorhome and needed some advice. When he got the contract from the dealer to sign they had added on two different fees, one for $79.95 for a “starter/fill up” kit and a second charge for $399.95 for “pre-delivery service.” He wanted […]

For RVers who want to make money as they travel, there are many ways to earn either a full or part time income with a computer. Ever improving technology, wireless internet connectivity, cellular telephones, and expanding social media have made opportunities possible for thousands of RVers and you could be one of them. I’ve listed […]

Today is the first day of our Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally, but by the end of the day yesterday, we already had 104 RVs on the fairgrounds! This included our advance staff, the parking crew, quite a few vendors, the Escapes class reunion group, the attendees at the Geeks on Tour Computer Boot Camp, and […]
