Note: This is a blog post from 2011 that I dusted off and updated because it answers questions I still get asked today. I received an e-mail from a reader a while back who is in the planning stages before going fulltime, asking about the annual costs of fulltime RVing. This is probably the most […]

I have heard from quite a few people about the coronavirus and how they are reacting to it. It seems like some people are ignoring it completely, thinking it’s just the media crying wolf again, while other people without any symptoms are self-quarantining themselves in their RVs or homes and avoiding the public as much […]

Your first view of Devils Tower National Monument, rising 1267 feet above the Belle Fourche River and surrounding grassland and Ponderosa pine forests of northeastern Wyoming like a rocky sentinel, is always breathtaking. The closer you get and the more time you spend here, the more the power and beauty of this natural wonder takes […]

I received an e-mail from a lady suggesting that I write a story about the problems dog owners encounter with RV parks that will not allow animals of certain breeds or over a certain weight. She said that she and her husband had been asked to leave three different RV parks because they have a […]

I hope everybody had a very Merry Christmas . How did you spend your holiday? Visiting family? At an RV park Christmas dinner? Did you go out to eat someplace? We had a very quiet Christmas here at home, just the two of us. We started the day snuggling in bed like we always do, […]

It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my Nick Happens stories, which are a collection of my adventures and misadventures over the years. Today I thought I’d tell you about an RV trip we took to Maine early in our fulltime RVing days, and how I wound up a drag queen. Maine was […]

Estero, Florida, located just 17 miles from Fort Myers, is considered by many to be one of the best places to live in the state. Home to many retirees, Estero has a lot to offer, including shops, restaurants, parks, and a low crime rate. But modern-day retirees are not the first to discover the area […]

We met some interesting people in our 18 years as fulltime RVers running a business on the road. Most have been nice, but some have been, shall we say, interesting? Challenging? Unique? Early in our fulltime adventure we had signs on our truck that said Gypsy Journal RV Travel Newspaper. Once, we were approached by […]

There Must Be A Reason

There is an old saying that everything happens for a reason. I might add that sometimes you need to listen to reason. I once got an e-mail from a gentleman asking my advice about an RV purchase. He wanted to buy a motorhome that he said was an excellent deal, $35,000 less than any comparable […]

The last couple of days have been busy, busy, busy for us. You may recall that a while back I had an episode of dizziness, blurred vision, and a terrible headache. After going to my primary care doctor, they sent me for what they said was going to be an MRI, but actually turned out […]
