We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I have reached the point where we prefer the comforts of a full hookup RV park, we are no strangers to dry camping. In fact, we probably have a lot more experience at it than most folks we know. There was a […]

Today is my buddy Greg White’s  65th birthday, which makes him really, really old! But that’s okay buddy, I’m not that far behind you. Just two charming old farts, right? Although his pretty wife Jan and Miss Terry might disagree with that statement since when the two of us get together, we seem to regress […]

The other day, Phil May from TechnoRV sent me copy of his book From High-Tech To High Plains, in which he tells the story of how he and his wife Tracey left their high pressure lives and careers and became fulltime RVers, homeschooling their two children on the road, and operating a mobile business selling […]

I get a lot of e-mails from blog readers and Gypsy Journal subscribers.  Some of those e-mails tell me about new places we should visit, or share our readers’ experiences at places they visited after reading our stories about them. Others offer suggestions about ways I can improve the blogs, or things we can do […]

Sometimes I wonder how some people ever get to the point in life where they can afford an RV and become fulltime RVers, or even weekend campers, because they are just so…. well, there’s no other way to say it….so dumb! One of the good things about my job is that I get a lot […]

For fulltime RVers and those who spend months at a time on the road, one challenge can be finding a place to do routine maintenance on our vehicles. I know a lot of RVers who are perfectly capable of doing their own maintenance, but finding a place to do it can be a challenge. Very […]

By the time you read this, we will be sawing logs. For the last week, we’ve been getting up way too early and getting very little sleep. So we have a lot of ZZZZs to catch up on. Tom and Barbara Westerfield’s motorhome is parked in front of our Winnebago, and Greg and Jan White […]

I ate so much yesterday that I may not go near a refrigerator for at least a week! Well, okay, but at least not for another hour or two! Miss Terry was up early, making cookies and carrot cake to take to her sister Lisa’s house for a family dinner to celebrate her parents’ birthdays. […]

Proving just how hard it is to break a bad habit once it gets established, I was awake by 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That’s about four hours after the time I normally get to bed. This really has to stop! The weather report had called for scattered thunderstorms in western Michigan, and soon after I […]

With summer finally here, a lot of us who have been sitting still much of the winter are hitting the road, and weekend warriors are getting their RVs ready for vacations and summer camping trips. RVs are complex machines, and while I am far from a technical person, even I am capable of taking a […]
