It’s Not Gonna Work

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 […]

A Schedule (Of Sorts)

Miss Terry and I spent too many years of our lives on a schedule, both before we became fulltime RVers, and then for most of our 17+ years as working RVers. It seemed like we were always on our way to some rally or speaking gig or something. In the last few years we have […]

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 […]

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 […]

We Got Boosted!

Being working RVers and with a daily blog that gets a high readership, being able to get online is very important to us. In fact, we have avoided going some places because we could not get a reliable signal. We don’t just surf the internet, it’s an important tool to get our jobs done. Over […]

Terry and I love animals and always have. I’m partial to German shepherds and have been owned by several fine ones over the years. When we got together Terry had two dogs, an Australian Shepherd and a Siberian Husky, as well as several cats. When we hit the road we found new homes for all […]

Sunday = Fun Day

Have I mentioned lately how nice and laid-back life is now that we’re not chasing the RV rally scene as vendors, teaching at Life on Wheels, holding our own rallies, and mailing out the printed edition of the Gypsy Journal? There was a time when we put an average of 15,000 or more miles per […]

A Short Move

Yesterday we had one of the shortest moves ever in our sixteen years as fulltime RVers, just 7 1/2 miles. But oh what a difference that short distance made! Since we didn’t have far to go we didn’t get up until 8:30 a.m., which is later than usual for us on a traveling day. Then […]

A Writing Day

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 […]

In our fifteen years on the road we have met thousands of working RVers, and I think the numbers are growing, based upon the e-mails I get from people who want to earn money as they travel. Many newbies to the mobile lifestyle immediately think of working in an RV park, commonly called workamping, when […]
