Since vending and seminars ended for us on Wednesday and we didn’t have far to go to our next destination, we slept in until 9 yesterday morning. That sure felt good after the last few hectic days. Several people wanted bundles of the Gypsy Journal to drop off in their travels, including our pals Dave […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Often with fulltiming couples […]

Playing tourist is fun on vacation, but when you do it every day it’s hard work. We’ve been on the go since we got to Titusville and even before that, and we were getting tired. So yesterday we had a stay at home day. But that didn’t mean it was a do nothing day; we […]

We were up and out the door by 7:30 a.m. yesterday, headed for Benny’s Auto Repair to get the front end of our Ford Explorer worked on. Not for the first time, we both said a little prayer of thanks for not having to be part of the working world commuting to a job every […]

One of the most frequent questions I get from people who are new to the RV lifestyle and shopping for a used rig is, should they get a pre-purchase inspection, and if so, who does them? I consider an independent inspection to be vital when purchasing something as expensive as an RV. In fact, as […]

I guess spring brings out dreams of travel and adventure because I’m hearing from a lot of people who are RV shopping for the first time, and also from a lot of folks who have RVs and are thinking about replacing them. When people talk about changing RVs it almost always because they want something […]

We Survived The Storm

Severe storms were predicted for the Elkhart area Tuesday night, with winds up to 60 MPH, lightning, rain and hail. We got the rain, lots of thunder and lighting, and some hail, but fortunately it wasn’t nearly as bad as predicted. But it sure was a noisy night that made sleeping difficult for a lot […]

RV Financing

In the last couple of weeks I have had three or four e-mails from blog readers asking about RV financing. Getting a loan for a big ticket item like an RV can be a challenge, and if you are a fulltimer it can be all but impossible through many lenders. One e-mail was from a […]

I get a lot of e-mails from folks asking about the RV lifestyle, a lot of them asking for advice on what kind of rig I would recommend for them. There’s really no way I can answer a question like that, because as I’ve said many times before, there is no one size fits all. […]

The internet is a powerful tool that has changed the world in more ways than I can count. From the comfort of our RVs, we can log onto the World Wide Web from wherever we may be parked and communicate with our family and friends, read the news, do our shopping, pay our bills, and […]
