We were out running errands much of yesterday and I ran out of time, so here is my blog post from five years ago today. Hard to imagine that weather when it is 90 degrees here on the central Florida coast. Yesterday was a long day on the road for us, 262 miles, from Sutherlin, […]

In Wednesday’s blog we discussed ways RVers can make money with a computer as they travel the country. Here is a second helping of ways that different RVers we know or have met are earning a full or part time income with their computers. Affiliate Marketing – There are many different affiliate marketing websites online […]

It rained hard all night Tuesday night, and when the alarm went off at 7:30 yesterday morning neither one of us wanted to crawl out of bed. But we had miles to cover in another day on the road, so after snuggling for half an hour or so we finally did get our bodies into […]

Yesterday was a long day on the road for us, 262 miles, from Sutherlin, Oregon to Redding, California. We’ve done more miles in a day many times, but this trip was mountain driving most of the way and that’s always more like work for me. It was a foggy morning and as these pictures show, […]

Frugal Vs Cheap

There is frugal and then there is cheap, and there is a difference between the two. I wrote a book called The Frugal RVerto help RVers save money on the road. We publish guides to free campgrounds, fairgrounds with RV camping, and casino camping. Taking advantage of these opportunities is being frugal. And then there’s […]

Greg Fixed It

In yesterday’s blog I wished my friend Greg White happy birthday and sung his praises, and here I go again, because he has done it again. A couple of weeks ago I reported that the drum on our Splendide washer/dryer combo had stopped turning, though it had power and the pump runs. After going through […]

After reading yesterday’s blog I got e-mails and messages from four or five RVers who said they had inquired about staying at the campground here at the fairgrounds in Douglas, Wyoming and been told it was only open for special events. So I went up to the office to see what the official word is, […]

We didn’t have anyplace we had to be yesterday, so I made up from having to wake up early Thursday morning by sleeping in and then we just stayed in bed and snuggled for a while. Oh yes, that’s much better! Once we finally did get up, we spent some time with our usual morning […]

After fulltiming for fourteen years now, you’d think that we’d have this thing down to a science by now. But for whatever reason, after we have been sitting still for a while, Terry and I never sleep well the night before setting out on a trip. It’s not nerves, we love traveling in our RV […]

Working Away

What can I say? That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing for the last few days, just working away on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Before I got started yesterday we spent some time visiting with Stu and Donna McNicol before they left the campground. We’re looking forward to catching up with them […]

The internet is a powerful tool that has changed the world in more ways than I can count. From the comfort of our RVs, we can log onto the World Wide Web from wherever we may be parked and communicate with our family and friends, read the news, do our shopping, pay our bills, and […]

Anybody familiar with writers and the writing process knows that while having a good imagination helps, we don’t have to search hard for things to write about. Usually all we have to do is observe and listen. And trust me, truth really is stranger than fiction! Comedian Bill Engvall has made a career out of […]

More rain had been predicted for yesterday, but while we had heavy cloud cover for much of the day, it stayed dry. Or at least as dry as it can be when the humidity is 94%. I’m not making that up folks, you can almost reach out and touch the moisture in the air. I’m […]

One of the things we love about Elkhart Campground is that everybody we know seems to pass through here eventually. And lately, we’ve had lots of friends stopping by to visit. Monday, Charlie and Ruth Babcock, from Sterling Heights, Michigan, were passing through town on their Harley Davidson motorcycle, and came by to say hello. […]

Thank you to the many blog readers who e-mailed asking if Terry and I were okay when yesterday’s blog didn’t get posted at the usual time. We are fine, we were parked at the Bad River Lodge and Casino in Odanah, Wisconsin, with no cell phone or Verizon air card signal. We were pretty tired […]

We’ve had a wonderful time here at the Escapees Park of the Sierras, and this is one area that is very high on our list of places to come back to. We had hoped to do some exploring up along Highway 49 in the Gold Rush country while we were here, but we just ran […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

When we’re not busy traveling in our RV or writing about the RV lifestyle, I enjoy surfing the web and reading the many blogs and websites about RVing that are out there. Even after eleven years on the road, I manage to learn something new every day from what other RVers are writing about.  Today […]

Yesterday morning we left the Yuma County Fairgrounds, our home for the last several weeks, and drove 85 miles north on U.S. Highway 95 to Quartzsite, with Greg and Jan White following us in their American Eagle. They had never been to this part of Arizona, so I played tour guide on the handheld radio, […]
