2017 travel time has arrived, and the two RV Gypsies took a trip from Florida to Connecticut with several fun stops in between. Then they enjoyed time with family and friends in Connecticut.

Then they left Connecticut to get back to Florida for two special birthday parties, and had some fun stops, but along the way their RV needed some repair, so they stayed in hotels in Maryland, until their RV was repaired enough to finish the trip to Florida. Unfortunately, the repairs took longer than expected, and they had to miss the birthday celebrations. So sorry, Amy, Renee and John.

They finally reached Florida, and Karen flew to California for her niece's wedding. Lee does not want to fly anywhere, so he remained in the RV in Florida.

Then, the two RV Gypsies drove their RV to the Winnebago Factory in Iowa because they had an appointment there to get the slideouts fixed. (They originally had this scheduled for September 12, 2016 but when they got there, the factory had to make a part so the repair was rescheduled for August 1, 2017). The two RV Gypsies had to stay in a hotel until August 19th. After Iowa, the two RV Gypsies planned to drive their RV to Arizona to visit Lee's sister Patty, who is not feeling well. But the cost of the repairs made it impossible to go to Arizona, so they headed back to their permanent camping spot in Florida. They are so glad they do not have a house to worry about while traveling.

However, due to Hurricane Irma going towards Florida, the two RV Gypsies went to Tennessee and visited Lee's nephew and his family on their farm and really enjoyed their visit. Karen and Gabby got dressed in bee-suits and Karen learned a lot about bees and Goats walked on the car of the two RV Gypsies. Those adventures and more on site 20 on the 2017 USA map. The two RV Gypsies are not sure what comes next for them. Their A/C and their refrigerator both died and they are hanging loose until they see what the hurricane does. In the meantime, they are praying for the safety of their family in Florida.

Last year and this year have meant big expenses in RV repairs. But since they do not have a house or apartment, things like this have to be expected. All travel can be found by using the USA button above and choosing the map for the appropriate year. Although 2017 is obviously a work-in-progress and not always up-to-date.

Life is an enormous book. To not travel is to read only the first page.

2016 quick summary: Eight times the two RV Gypsies had to put their RV in different repair shops and they still had problems. But they also had lots of fun in 2016, especially when three family members joined them in Alaska. Karen had a major ATV accident but she is fine. The two RV Gypsies then returned to their RV Park in Florida for the winter. All of this can be found under the USA button above / then choose the 2016 map. But first, be sure to check out all the information below on this page, much of it will be useful in navigating this very large website. Some special highlights are also noted below.

September 7, 2015 The two RV Gypsies were in Ontonagon, Michigan and they went outside of their RV and 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 they drove down a 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 the driftwood. The two RV Gypsies hung the signed piece 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. (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. ) Obviously the travel ornaments cannot show up very well in the photos. Karen tries to buy something that hangs wherever she goes; something that says where they are, and often that is just a keychain. An update of the Christmas trees was posted December 2015. So far there are 122 keychains displayed on chains under upper cabinets, 121 travel ornaments on the big tree, 25 breakable travel ornaments on the wire tree, plus 85 patches displayed on six belts that hang around the RV. And the two RV Gypsies collect more and more ornaments, keychains, and patches each year.

WINTER HOME: The Two RV Gypsies winter 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.
