I get a lot of email from RVers as well as from campers. And I get a lot of emails from people who believe they are one and the same. They’re not. At least not by my definition, for what that’s worth. In my mind, RVers are people who live or travel in an RV […]

A while back I did a blog post titled 10 Gift Ideas For RVers, and judging by the feedback I got from them, I thought I would post some more. So here you go, 10 more Christmas gift ideas, and each of these costs under $15. We use, or have used, all of the products […]

On a visit to Cape Cod we came across a windmill that most RVers could identify with, because it seems to have a bit of gypsy in its soul. The historic Jonathan Young Windmill, located just off busy Highway 6A in Orleans, has done some traveling since it was built in the early 1700s. The […]

Size Matters

Note: This is a reprint from a 2014 blog post. One of the most frequent questions I get from wannabe RVers, whether they are considering a motorhome, fifth wheel, or travel trailer, is what size to get. And there is no way I can answer that question because no one size fits all RV has […]

RVers are adventurous people, there’s no question about that. After all, they’re willing to jump into a box made of metal or fiberglass and take off down the highway spending days, weeks, months, or even years in strange places, surrounded by people they’ve never seen before. They don’t let little things like bad weather, rough […]

RVers are always fun people to hang out with, and the most fun of them all of the members of the Escapees RV Club. Those folks know how to have a good time! Yesterday afternoon I happened to look out the window and saw a large crowd gathering in front of the office here at […]

I get a lot of e-mails from RVers and wannabe RVers. Most of the time they are nice folks with legitimate questions and I try my best to answer them with advice, or if I don’t know the answer I try to point them in the direction of somebody who does. But sometimes I just […]

With so many RVers going to the big campout in the desert at Quartzsite, Arizona, I thought I’d share a story from the January-February 2007 issue of the Gypsy Journal about an interesting day trip you can take from there. A few miles north of Blythe, California, off U.S. Highway 95, we discovered a series […]

Well, I planned to get some writing done yesterday, and Miss Terry planned to get some weaving done. But as they taught us in the Army, you can plan as much as you want to, and everything still goes to hell when boots hit the ground. Such was the case yesterday. It started out with […]

I like to save a buck as much as the next guy, and anytime I can get a discount on something I’m happy to do so. But I also realize that a business has to make a profit to keep its doors open. But for some reason, a lot of RVers I hear from don’t […]
