I got emails from two different readers yesterday thanking me for mentioning several times that we always keep our fresh water tank at least half full, and whenever I park the motorhome for more than an overnight stay, I like to go into a campground with a full tank of fuel. One couple is somewhere […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I’m in the process of arranging to get some tests here at the VA in Bradenton that my doctor back in Tucson wants me to have done. Yesterday morning started with a phone call from the Traveling Vet coordinator telling me they’ve set me up for the lab work next week, […]

Did anybody get the license number of the truck that hit me? Because I think he went around the block and came back and did it again! It’s not enough that my back has been hurting for quite a while now, but Saturday evening my throat started feeling scratchy and by bedtime a cold was […]

We’ve known many fulltime RVers who work or run small businesses on the road, others who workamp at RV parks, and plenty who keep busy exploring new territory, visiting with friends, following their hobbies, or just relaxing under the awning with a cold drink.

I’ve never made it a secret of the fact that I am no fan of the tactics of a great many RV dealers and RV salespeople. There are a lot of honest, ethical people in the RV industry. But we seldom hear about them, because the sad truth is that there are also a lot […]

Last night I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I will upload it to our printer’s web server this morning. This is issue 92, and that’s a lot of travel stories! And there’s still so much that we want to see and do, and tell you about. Overheard yesterday morning at the […]

After fifteen years of fulltiming we still love it as much as we did the first day, if not more. How could we not love a lifestyle that allows us the freedom ours does? But I have decided that if I ever do stop traveling I will live in the Florida Keys, write half a […]

Today’s the day I kick off my first day-long self-publishing workshop and I must admit to being a bit nervous. I’ve presented hundreds of seminars over the years on everything from working on the road to how to buy an RV to seminars on self-publishing. But this is the first time I’ve attempted a day-long […]
