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’s rained so much the last couple of days that we spent the weekend at home, just waiting for things to dry out a little bit. We made good use of the time – I reformatted several of my print books for Amazon’s Create Space print division on Saturday while Miss Terry worked her way […]

Get The Picture

A question I get asked often is what kind of digital camera does Terry use for all of the great pictures she takes for the Gypsy Journal and my blog. Several people have said that they want to take pictures that turn out as well as hers. We have several different cameras, actually. I’m not […]

Well, okay not the whole gang, but a lot of our pals are here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve or are headed this way. Yesterday afternoon Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour arrived, and they came by to visit for a while during the evening. I always enjoy picking their brains, because […]

Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, or Greg White, or Ron Speidel for what […]

A Serious Case Of Lazy

Yesterday I came down with a serious case of lazy and did not accomplish one thing all day long. And I don’t even feel guilty about it! There were a lot of things that I should have been doing, including working on my new Big Lake  book, but I just couldn’t get myself motivated. I […]

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, whether you are a mechanic, a carpenter, or a plumber, you need the best tools you can get your hands on to do your job. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I am not allowed to touch any kind of tool you can buy at […]

Several years ago I wrote a book called Work Your Way Across The USA, which is still available in print or as an e-book from Amazon. I’ve also presented seminars on working on the road at RV rallies across the country ever since we started our career as working fulltime RVers. I’ve always said that […]

Techno Look Back

We added a few new techno toys this year, and after using them for quite a while, I thought I’d give you my feedback on them in today’s blog, and whether I’d spend the money all over again. Kodak Zi8 digital video camera – I bought this unit for a  project I was working on, […]

After a lazy morning at home, playing catch up from our last few days of traveling, we spent yesterday afternoon at the Soo Locks Visitor Center, watching the huge freighters going through the locks. If you have not seen this yet, you really need to put it on your bucket list! Every year, some 10,000 […]

The Elks lodge here in Bremerton is located a couple of blocks off a main street, yet it feels secluded and quiet, surrounded by trees that give the place a lot of privacy. The campground wasn’t very full when we arrived seventeen days ago, but it has really filled up since then. Actually, it started […]

Okay, I was wrong and Jan White was right, and I publicly admit it. But I have to tell you, it’s really hard to do that. Jan is a fan of the CBS daytime television show The Talk, starring Sara Gilbert, Leah Remini, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, and Holly Robinson Peete, and a couple of […]

DirecTV Impresses Me

I’ve never been a fan of either Dish Network or DirecTV. I’ve had both services at one time or another, and am currently a Dish customer. As a fulltime RVer, I have had a number of frustrating encounters with the customer service people at both companies.. However, I believe that when a company goes the […]

We did some time traveling yesterday, but don’t worry, we’re back in the 21st Century now, safe and sound. Our friends Jerry and Suzy LeRoy drove up from their lot at the Escapees RV co-op in Benson, Arizona to visit us. It had been way too long since we saw Jerry and Suzy, and there […]

I have to be honest, even though we have belonged to Thousand Trails for several years, I was in no hurry to come to the preserve here in Clermont, Florida. But we’ve been here a week now, and I think it’s fast becoming one of my favorite Thousand Trails/NACO campgrounds. Our site is great, they […]

We’ve been Geeked! A couple of days before we left Elkhart Campground, Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour interviewed us for one of their Gabbing With The Geeks podcasts. We talked about the Gypsy Journal and how computer technology makes it possible for us to live and run our business on the road. […]

When our friend Cindy DuBois told me about the Ethel M. Chocolate Company factory in nearby Henderson, Nevada, taking a tour went to the very top of my bucket list! After all, chocolate is the fourth major food group, right? Mere minutes after I told my pal Greg White about the factory tour, there was […]

We were so tired Saturday night that we were in bed by 9:30 p.m. and I waited until Sunday morning to post the blog. We had a rainy night, and were wide awake before 7 a.m. Sunday, and on the road before 8 a.m., which was a new record for us. We passed through Montgomery […]

We’ll be celebrating a major milestone with the next issue of the Gypsy Journal, which will mark ten years of fulltiming and publishing the world’s only nationwide RV publication produced and distributed entirely on the road. We’re pretty darned proud of that. Looking back, I can still remember the moment the Gypsy Journal was born […]
