What's New on the website of the two RV Gypsies

WHAT'S NEW ON THIS WEB SITE ???? The Cruise button above is new (and still a work in progress). Plus lots of trips in the Carolinas and other nearby states have been added recently.

This page has lots of helpful travel hints. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this page, and every page so that you don't miss out on something important.

There are also a lot of navigational links on this page, plus many more choices under all red buttons at the top of this and most pages. Click on anything underlined below.

2021 NEWS: Karen is working on a Flashback page - great places they have visited BEFORE becoming the Famous Two RV Gypsies, plus some cruises. This will be a long-term work-in-progress. But check it out anyway and come back often and of course visit sites from all years. Flashbacks will take quite awhile to complete. The latest Flashback update was added on November 1, 2021.

The Coronavirus has not yet left, so just as they did in 2020, the two RV Gypsies have limited 2021 travel, But, everything they have managed to see and do in 2021 is posted here and will be constantly updated. Hope life gets back to normal for everyone soon. Stay safe!

Unlike previous years, 2019, 2020 and 2021 are set up by states because the two RV Gypsies did not travel full-time in their RV from Site #1 through Site # whatever, mostly due to the Coronavirus. Day trips from their temporary home base in SC are posted, along with RV travel trips. Plus these trips are expensive, and they are running out of money. After all, they are retired.

September 7, 2015 The two RV Gypsies were in parked in their RV in Ontonagon, Michigan and they saw The Northern Lights in the sky. They wanted to see them better so they drove just outside of town to get away from the city and lights and then down a dirt road towards Lake Superior. It was a dead-end road and there were four young guys watching the Northern Lights and they welcomed the two RV Gypsies to join them. It was like a dream come true; watching the Northern Lights and listening to the waves break on the shoreline of Lake Superior. One of guys gave Karen a pin and another gave her two pieces of nice driftwood to burn incense on and they even signed a souvenir piece of driftwood. The two RV Gypsies hung the signed driftwood in their RV for all to see as they enter. What a special night the two RV Gypsies will remember forever. Photo below.

October 19, 2014 - While at the Tybee Island Lighthouse in Georgia, the two RV Gypsies met some very nice people. After talking for awhile, the ladies asked Karen to post pictures of her Travel Tree on her website, so here they are, including updated yearly photos as the tree and amount of travel ornaments grew. (Ladies, please use the guestbook button above and sign in so that Karen knows you visited her site. Thank you, we enjoyed talking with you. )

Karen tries to buy something that hangs wherever she goes; something that says where they are, and often that is just a keychain. So far in 2020, there are 225 travel ornaments (including a few keychains) on the big tree, 25 breakable travel ornaments on the wire tree, plus 85 patches (mostly National Parks and State Parks) displayed on six belts that hang on the walls. And the two RV Gypsies collect more and more ornaments, keychains, and patches each year.

IMPORTANT INFORMATIONIf some photos don't show up on your computer, hit the F5 button, or view, refresh. That should solve the problem. Also, in the bottom right hand corner of your computer screen (or maybe the top right corner depending on your operating system and browser), put the size on 100%, 125%, (never bigger) to have the pages and photos fit your computer screen properly. If the photos or type do not align in a pleasant manner, this will help.

WINTER HOME: The Two RV Gypsies winter mostly in south Florida. (They always have their home with them when they travel because they live full-time in their RV and do NOT own or rent a house, but they are not AT HOME until they reach Broward County because they have lived in Broward since 1979. "It is so nice to travel, yet always having our own home with us, our own bed, our own shower, our own kitchen, etc. and not having to pack or unpack, and not having a house anywhere else to worry about is also a plus." (They are NOT snowbirds - Broward County is their only home even if they do live in an RV now - they just travel a lot.)

Being a full-time RVer is not the same thing as being a snowbird. A snowbird has a home or apartment somewhere in another state, and comes to South Florida to escape the cold, then leaves South Florida to go home. The two RV Gypsies have lived in Broward County since 1979 but they now live in their RV full-time and travel a lot in their RV. They always have their home with them, but they are not really AT HOME when travelling because they don't know the roads, location of stores etc. and don't stay very long in one place. Why on earth are people arguing with Karen and saying she is a snowbird, whether she likes it or not? There is nothing wrong with being a snowbird, but the two RV Gypsies just don't fit into that category. End of argument! Don't know why people want to turn this into an argument to begin with.

RVing in a motorhome is exciting and full of adventure. Every day is a new experience for the two RV Gypsies. One day they will be hiking to a waterfall, the next day riding a Segway, or at a water park, or riding a roller coaster, or sitting on the edge of a cliff overlooking the valley below, or just relaxing with a cocktail at a seaside restaurant. One thing they seldom do, is sit around a campfire, unless their grandson visits them. Since the two RV Gypsies no longer have a house anywhere or any expensive belongings to worry about, life is just full of adventures.

Note from the two RV Gypsies: May 7, 2012IMPORTANTThe trial of Douglas Lively is over. The jury has ruled that Douglas is guilty of first degree murder of our son Brian Duquette. Douglas Lively got life in prison - no parole. Now we can forget about Douglas and just remember the good times with our son Brian. We will always love and miss Brian so much. The jury deliberated ONLY one hour and 10 minutes and much of that time was probably picking a foreman. Guess there was zero doubt. Maybe a record for a murder trial. After the jury was dismissed, they all sat in the courtroom to hear the sentencing. They don't have to do that and seldom do that, or so we were told. What a relief. Use the "Brian" button above for complete details/photos. We are thankful for many things even though nothing will bring Brian back to us. It just hurts so much how extremely violent the murder was. I still hate Douglas Lively and always will. So we got Justice for Brian, but there is no such thing as closure. Please don't use the word closure. Our hearts will always ache for Brian and the evil and pain he faced in the end.

The two RV Gypsies want to hear from you through e-mail, and phone calls. If you have a RV travel website, please contact Karen so your website can be linked to this site and vice-versa. NO BUSINESS SITES PLEASE. I will only link to individual sites or blogs of RVers, or sites of personal friends.
