The Dragoon Mountains

Nov 30, Thursday (continued) From Benson, AZ I turn south down 80, which for a while follows a wash and is surprisingly green. Just before Tombstone, I veer east onto N Middlemarch Road. I’m headed for a well-known boondocking area, and all the reviews boil down to the same thing: Beautiful spot, rough road in. […]

Why “Buy Your Second RV First” Makes Me Cringe

When someone new asks in an RVing community for advice on what RV to buy, it’s become common to see at least one “buy your second RV first” response. The idea behind this sentiment is to spend more money for a better RV right out the gate, so that you don’t have to deal with […]

Texas Has Mountains

Nov 27, Monday After leaving my friend’s house in Lubbock, TX on the 22nd, I retrace my route back to Carlsbad on 62. There is little public land to boondock on in Texas, and the locations near Carlsbad National Park are the first you hit headed west: a gateway to boondocker’s paradise. I’m camped in […]

Life as an Experiment

You would think that with such a novel lifestyle as a traveler has, that it would be impossible to fall into the kind of day-after-day routines that one experiences living a stationary life. But that isn’t the case. Oh, the routine has more variables than one of a person living a stationary life, but it […]

An Observation on Self Employment

A few months ago I wrote about how having a schedule really helps a nomad keep a good work/life balance when working remotely for themselves. Today I’d just like to briefly interrupt your holiday weekend to point out one other related point that has come to my attention since I started working from my computer […]

Teardrop Build Reveal and Patreon Info

The order form for Hiker Trailer is four pages long, which I suspect could be quite intimidating for an RVing newbie. As for myself, when I received it my eyes lit up, it was like Christmas had come early. Highly customizable was just what I was looking for. I spent days perusing the Hiker Trailer […]

Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM

Having arrived at Carlsbad, NM on the 27th, I spend a couple days working on the computer and hanging around camp. The van guy and I continue to be the only ones out here at this boondock spot off Dark Canyon Road, southwest of town. Traffic is pretty much non-existent on this spur road, it’s […]

Escaping the Freeze

After touring Hiker Trailer in Denver, CO on the 24th, I spend one more night at St. Vrain State Park just north of Denver, and then prepare to hit the road the next day to escape the deep freeze coming later this week. October 25, Wednesday I stay at St Vrain as long as I […]

The Emotional Side of RV Selection and More on Hiker Trailer

If you missed Tuesday’s big announcements about the rig purchase and Amazon Affiliate account termination, read that first! Given our love in this day and age for solutions that are practical and orderly, I’m sure everyone would like a nice, sound, scientific reason why I chose a teardrop over other RV types when I decided […]

Kaizen (Two Big Announcements!)

Dreams are not static, just as we as people are not static. Our needs and desires change as we are introduced to new ideas and grow. This is a concept I’ve been over before on the blog and discuss in detail in my book ‘The Little Guide to Dreaming Big’. To me, it was a […]
