We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]

We are definitely in the rainy season here on the Florida coast. Just about every afternoon we watch the clouds build up and then they let loose and we get a downpour, usually accompanied by lots of thunder and lightning. A door next to my desk opens onto a small carport on the side of […]

After I wrote in yesterday’s blog that Terry and I started fulltiming in our mid-40s, a couple of people who are in that age range now wrote to ask me how we could afford to do that. They wanted to know if we sold a business or got rich in the stock market or something […]

With winter behind us and the busy travel season fast approaching, I know a lot of RVers are starting to think about where they are going to go this summer. So today I thought I would talk a little bit about RV trip planning. There are many ways to plan your RV travels. Some people […]

When you live and travel fulltime in an RV, something you always have to be aware of is weight considerations. There’s an old saying that whenever something comes in, something else has to go out. That’s why every time Miss Terry purchased a couple of skeins of yarn, I tried to stay as far away […]

Yesterday was the last day of vending at the Tucson Escapade, as well as the last day of my seminars. It’s all over for another year, and as much fun as we have had, and as much as we enjoyed seeing so many of our old friends and making new ones, I don’t think either […]

Note: I get a lot of requests for information on vending at RV rallies. This is an updated article that first ran in the March-April, 2007 issue of the Gypsy Journal. It sounds like a great idea. Find a couple of products, buy a folding table or two, and pay for your travels by selling […]

Getting A Lot Done

Not every day in the life of working fulltime RVers running a business on the road is about traveling or hanging out with friends at our favorite RV park before we all head out to dinner. Sometimes we actually do have to work, although I resist it as much as humanly possible. Yesterday was one […]

Paying The Price

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I needed a break and we took a day off to play. Actually it was more like half a day off, but whatever it was, I’m not going to do that again, because yesterday I was paying the price for it. We were out dropping off sample bundles of […]

Ever since we finished our Arizona rally, I have been working on our 2011 Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally, which will be September 26-30, at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, in Celina, Ohio. This will be our fourth Eastern Rally, and the third in Celina, a friendly little town that goes out of its way to make […]
