I get a lot of e-mails from people who are just getting into the fulltime RV lifestyle and have questions about everything from which state to chose as their legal domicile to what kind of RV is best for them, to which camping clubs, if any, to join. One of the most frequent questions is […]

Well Done, Heartland

When some 50 employees at Heartland RV in Elkhart, Indiana were called off the job this week and told to report to the company’s main building, they must have wondered what was going on. Especially given the volatile RV market, which has had plenty of ups and downs in recent years. Even when you work […]

Where did yesterday go? I think I must have blinked and missed it. It was like, I woke up, I brushed my teeth, and ten minutes later it was time to brush my teeth and go back to bed. Of course, it didn’t help that I was up until almost 3 a.m. making notes of […]

Et Tu, Terry?

Yesterday was the last day of the kite festival, and a little after noon we went to town and walked out on the beach to get one last look at all of the fun. There were a lot of kites flying, though not as many as on previous days, since it was Sunday and a […]

To just a precious few. Yes, it won’t be long until our visit here in our old hometown is over and we’ll be heading down the road again. It’s always bittersweet – we love visiting my daughter and her family, but we love our life on the road and could never be happy living here […]

One of the greatest things about the RV lifestyle is that we have been blessed with so many wonderful friends. And many times those friendships are stronger than the ones we had with people in our old hometown before we hit the road. If you’re a fulltimer and have a problem or medical issue, don’t […]

Dead Man Talking

Yesterday started with an e-mail from an RVing friend, asking if I had heard anything about Mac McCoy, who has taught RV fire safety seminars at RV rallies and shows. There was apparently a rumor going around that Mac was very ill, and possibly even dead. This, of course, really upset me, because Mac still […]

What a difference a day and 285 miles make. When we left the Vicksburg Elks Lodge about 10 a.m. yesterday morning we were wearing sweatshirts to ward off the chill. When we got off the road at 6 p.m. 285 miles west in Lindale, Texas we couldn’t wait to shed them and put on T-shirts! […]

Slacker Nick

I’m glad I don’t have a boss to report to, except Miss Terry, because yesterday I didn’t accomplish one darn thing. That’s right, I was a total slacker. A waste of skin. Just taking up space on old planet Earth. I had a whole bunch of e-mails to deal with in the morning and it […]

Miss Terry finished proofing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, and about 5:30 PM I made the last of the corrections and uploaded it to the printer’s web server. They will go over it again this weekend, and plan to print it on Monday. Then it will go onto a truck Tuesday, and […]
