In a blog a couple of days ago, I wrote about someone saying that she and her husband were bored and getting on each other’s nerves being cooped up all the time due to COVID-19. What’s that like? I don’t know what it’s like to be bored. I don’t think I have ever been bored. […]

Note: This is from a blog I wrote back in 2016, but it is in response to a question I have received many times since then, including just this week. 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 […]

RVers love blogging! These electronic newsletters provide us with a way to share our traveling adventures with our friends and families back home, and to keep in touch with other RVers we meet along the way. It’s also a diary of our daily lives  and a way to look back  on our adventures. Blogs allow […]

I get a lot of email every day, and a lot of those emails are from people who have questions about the RV lifestyle. What kind of RV should I buy? Is gas or diesel better in a motorhome? How do I get mail? What state should I choose for my legal domicile? I get […]

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 […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. Q. I am wondering if you have ever written any articles about starting your own blog – and/or website hosting services? If not, […]

A few days ago I updated and reposted a blog on working on the road, and ended it by saying that I would post a blog on ways you can make money with your computer as you travel. These are just a few ways to earn a buck or two with a computer. More to […]

After getting e-mails from readers who wanted to know how one gets approached by companies to do product reviews in response to my recent blog about the weBoost 4G RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit a couple of days ago in a blog post titled It’s Not That Easy, I talked about what it takes […]

After reading my blog post the other day titled We Got Boosted in which I wrote about the weBoost 4G RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit I was sent to review, I got three or four inquiries from blog readers wanting to know how often we get freebies like that, and how they can get […]

The first order of business in today’s blog is to wish my two favorite cousins in the world happy birthday, Beverly McKiddy and Berni Frees. They’re not twins or even siblings and their birthdays are a few years apart, but both ladies are very special to me. We wish we could be with both of […]

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 […]

I hear from people all the time who have a blog and want to make money from it, or have companies send them free products. I always tell them that, first of all you have to have the reader numbers and the track record to attract those businesses, but also, if you’re willing to plug […]

Happy Independence Day everybody, and happy birthday America! I want to thank all of the veterans and active duty military who made this day possible. I hope you have a wonderful, safe holiday weekend. We’re spending it staying close to the campground and off the highway as much as possible. We’ve been on the go […]

Thanks Greg!

Terry has had the same pair of glasses for three years and it was time for a new pair, so we started the day yesterday with a trip to the WalMart Vision Center for her to get an eye exam and order a pair. When we were done with that we went to her parents […]

After being on the go so much lately, it was nice to be able to sleep in a little bit yesterday morning. Once we were up and in gear, I spent a couple of hours playing catch up with e-mails that had been pushed to the back burner with everything else going on. Then I […]

Who are these modern day gypsies who spend their lives on the road? What prompted them to leave their former homes and communities for a life on wheels? Each week we will introduce you to some of the fulltime RVers we meet in our travels and those who read this blog. Once upon a time, […]

About this time every year I get a report from WordPress on how this blog performed in the past twelve months, and this year’s report came in yesterday. The numbers are very nice. In fact, a note with the report said that this is one of the top read travel blogs published on a daily […]

I spent most of the weekend working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and by the time I knocked off last night, I had gotten a lot accomplished. I should be on track to make our deadline for the printer with no problem. Actually, I did take some time away from the keyboard […]

RVs are pulling into Elkhart Campground one after another as weekend warriors arrive to kick off the season. For the next three months or so every campground and RV park in the country will be full of campers, kids, barking dogs and smoky campfires. You gotta love summer, right? Hey, it’s all part of the […]

Oh what a difference a few days make! A week ago it looked and felt like a winter landscape here in northern Indiana. The sky was dark with clouds, the trees were bare, and we were running our RV’s furnace to keep warm. Yesterday it was nice enough for short sleeves, folks were out walking […]
